Last night we celebrated another Anniversary at Signatures. Each time we go we are overwhelmed with the incredible food and outstanding service. They seated us in our favourite 'red' room and had it all to ourself...what a easant surprise as it was so quaint and romantic. I want to thank our incredible and very knowledgeable waiter David....he really gave us outstanding service and helped to create a beautiful evening for us...we will be back again for more Anniversaries..and maybe before

Great Lunch

Having been here for dinner before, some friends and I decided to try their lunch. This was actually in the part of the restaurant called Bistro Cordonbleu and it is operated by students studying at the Cordonbleu School. Each lunch is a fixed menu, so check the website since the menu constantly changes. One gets a glass of wine and a coffee as part of the fixed price, but you can always order more beverages at an additional price. Each of the 3 courses were excellently prepared. It was all very delicious. The guys working in the kitchen will clearly have great careers as chefs when they graduate. The students waiting on the tables were very polite but they lacked polish. They could have been a wee bit more attentive, but we were basically served well. The atmosphere was very nice and we felt very relaxed. Parking was a bit of a problem and we found it odd that their parking lot was completely full.

If you want a fabulous food experience order the menu de gustation with the wine pairing. It really is an evening's entertainment. You will be expertly served several small dishes that each in its own way will delight you. With the wine pairing, you will always have a great accompaniment. Even though I have a very large appetite, I felt completely sated by the end of the meal.

When we arrived there, we were warmly welcomed. We had excellent suggestions on orders from our waited. What i loved the most about the place is the wine. Putting the right wine with the right food is their specialty. It is some how expensive but the experience is unforgettable. I would definitely go again.

When two in your party have extra courses but the resturant does not wish to see them doing nothing while the other two enjoy their course, why not bring a little something for them to nosh on. This is the kind of service that is to be expected at this 5 Diamond resturant. I cannot say enough of the service and food at this place. The standard is definately set here and all others have a long long way to come to meet this level of excellence.

The service in this restaurant is truly spectacular. The food, however, was aboslutely horrendous, not so much lacking in taste, as just completely plain and simple. The portions are not only very small, they also lack in quality. Frankly, we might as well have opened a canned product... this was a great disappointment.

Overall the service was adequate however a few things: Server spoke too quickly and not loud enough. She also did not seem familiar with what gins you had. Drinks took a while and my gin and tonic was very weak and with an enormous chunk of cucumber rather than a thin slice. My husband’s steak was overcooked as was mine. Our friend’s plate had a big smudge of gravy on the plate which should have been wiped clean before being brought to the table. Despite ordering coffee to go with dessert we had to remind the server.

The two courses we had were very good. Unfortunately, despite me informing them by email prior, they did not bring out GF bread as I requested. We were there for my wife's 50th B-day and this is a Pet peeve of hers. The menu was not very good for GF dessert options. I was surprised that at a fine French restaurant one could not have a crème Brule for dessert , even though not on the menu and if one asked far ahead. While I liked the two courses I got, and the service at the table was good, for 4adults and a child without booze for 230$ not really good value and something I will do seldom again. The "fine details" also fell through.

We had a very special evening celebrating a 40th Birthday. We couldn’t have been more pleased - the room was beautiful and music was just right, our service was the perfect balance of friendly and professional. All 5 of us chose the 5 course tasting menu. The food was exceptional, interesting and beautifully prepared. Once agsin, for us, Signatures Resteraunt provided the truly special dining experience we were hoping for! Thank you!

I had a wonderful experience all the way around. The staff were welcoming and quite attentive. I have been trying to describe how delicious the food was, but am not sure that I have done it justice. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon and would be more than pleased to do another meal at the restaurant. Thank you for everything.

We had a lovely time. Excellent, attentive service made for a very enjoyable evening. The food was top notch. We left nicely full and very satisfied. On atmosphere I dropped one star as I would suggest they dial back the lighting a wee bit. It seemed too bright for the room. This said, that’s only opinion. Others may have loved it.

The restaurant was almost empty and yet a group of four was placed right beside us. The music was too loud. Your (tall) waiter is intrusive, tries to enter into the guests’ private conversations with total inappropriate comments. Both waiters were asleep at the switch. I had to ask FIVE times to have my water glass refilled. It was empty 75% of the evening. The food was bland and overpriced.

Not surprisingly, French wines reign supreme at the lone Canadian outpost of the legendary Cordon Bleu culinary institute. However, you’ll also find Italian and Canadian sparkling wines, at prices ranging from modest to stratospheric. Housed in a Victorian mansion, Signatures offers inventive takes on classic French cuisine, such as sautéed escargots with celery root purée or venison loin with port wine figs. Thoughtful touches and unexpected amuse-bouches make it a popular destination for special occasions.
