“Downhill”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

First time we went was about a week it opened......bad service bad food (growing pains).....went back just last year, lunch time...still DOWNHILL, instead of bad service AND bad food we got bad food and bad service. Meat had a particular funny taste and the waiter was slow, the turtle would have won inf there was a race.

“Great atmosphere, so so food and service”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

Had dinner last week at Steak Frites, Kirkland and the atmosphere was great however the food and service were so, so. Staff wasn't very attentive and the food was okay but nothing to write home about. I might give it a second chance but won't recommend it until then.

“Attentive Service - Food OK”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

No ambiance. Large warehouse type restaurant. Party of six had varied main dishes and results. Steak was good, nicely cooked, but not flavourful. The scallops were good. Salmon tartar had little taste. House salad was horrible like someone took an entire head of lettuce and sprayed it with dressing. Fries were good and all you can eat. Service was great. Bring your own wine. Overall, would not return. Had better food for less at Les Trois Brasseurs...really.

“Steak & Frites Delight!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Great restaurant if you want to invite a group of friends. This is a bring your own wine restaurant and the nice thing about this particular restaurant is that you can come at first seating which is at 6PM and stay past the second seating which is at 9PM (on a Saturday evening). Other such restaurants typically want you to leave by 9PM, so that the second seating can come. The ambiance is warm, even if the space is big and is separated with bar area. The food is good and the service is excellent. The steak and frites are delicious and the waiter continuously passes by with an abundance of frites to add to your plate.

“Chain Restaurant”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

Unlike most steak houses, a large warehouse type setting. Our party of seven had a varied meal and results. Steak was good, nicely cooked, but not flavourful. The scallops were very good. Salmon tartar had little taste. Frites were good and an all you can eat item. Very little ambiance. Service was good. The best part was you can bring your own wine and there is no corkage fee. Overall, would return with a lower expectation bar.
