We were invited to join friends at this restaurant for dinner. The restaurant is in an easy to find location in Burlington. The premises are inviting, well light but not too bright. The service was attentive and prompt. The best part was the menu- in addition to their regular menu they have many specials. We all had an excellent meal,... More

This takes us a back to the days of orchestrated fine dining, with several different servers coming to the table, each with their assigned duties. There are several items prepared tableside although we did not have any of them. First we had cocktails while we looked through the menu. We also received some garlic bread and a plate of black...

The service was only average and there was only about 4 tables occupied. Worst Ceasar I have ever had, no celery no garnashees. My veal was just OK. My wifes sea food chowder was excellent. Price too high for the caleber of food. Coffee was good but $4.00 for a small cup?

It was our first visit to Lord Nelson and all three of us had very good meals-pasta, steak and lobster and sea bass. The wine was excellent as was the service. This is a very traditional decor that is well done.

This has been my favourite place to dine since 1985, but sadly, it is losing it's appeal. It seems that the ambience is going away, and that there is a move toward making it more appealing to the younger set. We were 4 for dinner, and our friends arrived before us. They were greeted warmly, then abruptly dumped when a... More

I took my husband here to celebrate his birthday and was not disappointed. Our waiter Scott made sure we had everything we wanted and prepared one of the best Caesar salads for us. Our steaks were tender and delicious.

visited this restaurant for the first time on our wedding anniversary. All of the staff are very attentive to their guests needs. Food is served hot and at the proper time. I had Salmon for my main dish. I found I did not like the taste of the topping with the salmon.. The waiter was more than happy to take... More

There was nothing terribly wrong with our meals but for the price I expected more and impeccable service. The steaks were cooked to perfection but there were issues with service. The waiter was not as attentive that a $60 entree demands. Some of our party was late and despite being told I'll be right back to take your order, he... More

My family and I were at The Lord Nelson this past Saturday for a 5:30 pm reservation for a small dinner party of 6. I have had many dinners at their place including some business meetings so I am very much aware of your service and food standards and quality. I have a few things to note. I was trying... More
