"For our family, this has been a solid restaurant in terms of upper mid range dining.
Its menus (change every few months) and food have been great.

"My husband and I frequent this place quite often and we quite like the food but this time we were disappointed with the Winterlicious event. The dishes were small and the smothered pork loin was disappointing. We had to order another dish to fill ourselves up. It doesn't mean we won't go back, we love it here but not for a Winterlicious or Summerlicious event."

"Lots of choices on the menu. And flexibility.
We did not pick the right desert from the Winterlicious menu. So I was disappointed with my desert order after trying my first bite. As soon as our waiter found that, he went and brought another desert choice! Yaae! A pleasant surprise

"We went there for Winterlicious, the prix fixed lunch and menu was quite good. The booking through Open Table was easy and fast. Very efficient! We did not have to wait long because there was only two of us. The restaurant was packed.
Overall booking experience through Open Table was excellence.

"I came here with my girlfriend for her birthday. Given that it was in the middle of Winterlicious, the place was fairly busy for a weekday dinner service. It seems, however, that they didn't really account for the season: our server looked busy and appeared to be everywhere instead of looking after a group of tables; consequently we there were sizeable gaps when we weren't helped.
The food was decent, especially given that it was a 3-course prix fixe meal for $25. I found my main course (blackened haddock with rice) just a bit on the salty side and not quite hot enough. I also felt that the haddock could have been more blackened. My girlfriend's pork loin, however, was the right temperature. The portions were small; neither of us were completely full. But given that, on the regular menu, the haddock itself was $29, I wondered if the normal portions were larger.
Overall, I'm willing to bet that my review is somewhat skewed because of the special season, but it suffered a bit for its service, while being boosted by its value."

"3rd time to O&B - becoming a family favourite. Great food and v.good service. Winterlicious for the adults - gumbo and salad, fried chicken - crispy outside, tender inside with cornbread. Gluten free options for pasta (chicken and tomato sauce) for the kids, and cheesy pizza- staff very accommodating to kids food allergies. Really appreciated the thoughtful service."

"As usual, O & B was amazing. The food was delicious - I had the split pea gumbo soup, veggie jambalaya and pumpkin cake which were all excellent. Our waitress was fabulous - very friendly and attentive - and the service excellent despite being extra busy with winterlicious."

(Poor) 1 / 5
"After arriving and viewing the winterlicious menu which was subpar, my girlfriend and I ordered calamari as an app with two cocktails. The white wine sangria and governer margarita were both great and the calamari was okay, nothing special. For the main dishes we ordered the chicken penne and the steak. The chicken penne was comparable to a Metro -super market bought pasta. The steak was ordered with fries and no gravy however when delivered, it was with mashed potatoes and plenty of gravy. Our server noticed the mistake and returned it. When the second steak was brought, it was supposed to be 10oz and cooked medium. However, it was maximum 5oz and cooked well done which was also noticed by our server. Im not sure how they could have messed up two steak orders and it definetly ruined our experienced considering the steak is $37! if you want steak - go to the keg! We do not recommend this restaurant to any one."

"The menu was not very good - grits and collard greens ! We both just had a soup which was very good and a much to greasy sandwich. The dessert was very good. Soup and desert at half the cost would have been OK.
I have not been there since they changed the menu. It is NOT a grill. Much to noisy.
The waiter was excellent.

"A group of us went for a winterlicious lunch last week and we found that while the service and ambiance were very good, the food was way too salty. It was a bit disappointing because most of the time, the food is very consistent and good."

"We had dinner with friends, but unfortunately only one person in our party of 4 enjoyed the food. The pizza crust was thick & doughy, and mostly soggy. The salad portions were modest and the quinoa salad had a mere trace of quinoa in it. The weren't particularly tasty. The coffee was cold, and when we requested hot coffee, the replacement cups were equally cold. Our server seemed tushed and in her haste spilt a cup of coffee. To make things worse, the washrooms appeared unattended, which was very offputting. We won't be returning."
