Ayden Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
’Beef’ was not a great cut of meat, greasy and over spiced, not worth the $45. 3 of us agreed on this. Limited wine selections but interesting choices, and over priced of course. They ran out of ‘hen’, which is unbelievable. Isn’t poultry pretty readily available? By the way, it’s the Christmas season, so perhaps the chef’s grocery order should account for that. When you only have 6 entrees to choose from, I’d be making certain that they’re all available....... We made our reservation over a month ago and expected a decent table. 6 of us were stuffed into a cove that was probably converted from a servers’ station. Not impressed to say the least.
Unfortunetly, the experience was a let down. Upon arrving we were told our table would not be ready until our reservation time and nothing else. We were not welcomed to the restaurant or invited to order from the bar. Just left. Our server was very nice, accomodating and helpful. Appetizers were all outstanding and drinks were also great. The mains were underwhelming. Both burgers were asked to be cooked medium-rare and were both served very rare. Another of our dishes was crudly sent back to the table which was uniformly perceived as insulting by all of our group. All 10 diners enjoy supporting local buisnesses and were looking forward to a locally owned and locally sourced meal. We all felt this experience could have been a lot better had the service from the kitchen and hosts been more attentive and welcoming.
Great dining experience. Lovely ambience and our server was wonderful. The food and drinks were great - and well explained in the menu.
My only constructive criticism would be that we were overserved. I know that it's the diner's responsibility to know their limits, but I also think the service staff needs to be aware of, and responsive to, the intoxication level of their diners.
It was a casual business meeting, restaurant was busy for dinner on a Thursday evening, lots of noise but we were still able to communicate, seems they pride themselves in using locally sourced items, wine choices were pricey, in our group of 9 the food was good and very good.
13th birthday dinner for our daughter. Jack made her feel welcome and looked after her very well. The food was excellent. Our starters were awesome. All of the mains were cooked to order and perfectly seasoned. Jacks recommendations were excellent. We will be back to check out Sticks and Stones as well as Little Grouse onto Prairie. Great place Dale!
Thank you for the hospitality!!!
I felt it was good. Not outstanding. Just good. Cool ambiance. It's loud, the acoustics aren't great you have to yell. Our server was really good. She kept forgetting water which was annoying. I was paying for 8 guests and $700 just fill my water glass. I did appreciate she let me know about the 18 percent tip already added, some restaurants don't do that. I would go again, it didn't feel it was outstanding by any means.
The restaurant atmosphere and food menu was very appealing. We asked the fans to be turned down and our waiter did so impressed with that. Everything was very good food wise but the pork for two meals was very undercooked so both plates had to be returned. They cam back quickly but still not quite right but mostly all very tasty so would definitely go back again!
