Mavor's Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews

It was a great event. I can't say other than the food was good. The service was a little slow and no attention/service after dinner was placed in front of us; none until we were entirely finished eating. We weren't upset about that but it did seem a little unusual. Nevertheless, we will go again sometime although we really don't eat out much. The cost was $105. + tip of $10. (2 people). We really can't do that very often.

Recently went to Mavor's with my daughter for a pre-theatre dinner. The menu was new, and had a great assortment of options. We were happy with our choices - very flavourful, although my daughter's meal came without the side which was promised on the menu. The service, however, was lovely - our server was friendly and efficient. The food was a bit delayed in coming out of the kitchen, which meant that we didn't have time for dessert, but overall, we had a very pleasant dining experience. Would certainly recommend, and will no doubt go back. There are a couple more items on the new menu that I'd like to try!

New menu, which is more expensive than old one. Many new items to choose from. Our server was very slow, forgot to bring bread. Brought drinks after we were finished eating. Not the service we have been used to in the past.

Not so good this time, alas. Scallops came out only warm, not hot. Mac and cheese was not cheesy--almost as if the chef was running out (table mates ordered the same dish and reported the same problem). Caesar salad rather heavily sauced. So still generally tasty, with attentive service and quiet ambience, but not as good as previously.

We have had outstanding service and very good food each time we have gone here regardless of the occasion . Highly recommend Mavor's whether attending the theater or looking for a quite place to enjoy the occasion.

Very fine kitchen: superb scallops with an interesting tomato "jam" and lettuce; very fine lobster mac'n'cheese with an usually good salad as unadvertised accompaniment.
Very fine staff: helped me with local touring questions, stayed on top of each course and refill, entirely charming.
The room is decorated by large contemporary portraits that some (including me) would find discomfiting. They aren't ugly so much as quite specific--good for a gallery, but too arresting, even unnerving, to serve as "wallpaper" in a restaurant.
Piped-in music was an odd contemporary pop mix: I would prefer a softer mix either of regional musicians or of those who have appeared in the theatre.
Otherwise, though, very good and I'll return.

Three of our party had the seafood chowder which was tasty but not outstanding.
Three of us had fish and chips which we all found to be very greasy. If you touched the fish oil oozed out of the coating on the fish. I think the oil must not have been hot enough when the fish was cooked because it just soaked up the oil. The fries were good, the pickle garnish and tarter sauce were good. Irish Coffee was also good.

We chose the restaurant because of it's location as we were attending the Mama Mia Show.
Lovely location, lovely spot.....except for our table. Don't think we would reserve online again, as you just end up with a table I don't think anyone would want and you don't know that until your seated.

Quite disappointed actually. We went to lunch before Mama Mia and ordered salad and soup. The waitress mentioned bringing bread but it never showed and then when we ordered a certain dessert from the menu it was not available.

The food was good but the restaurant decor is tired. The restaurant was empty yet they sat us in front of the waitress station and kitchen doors. I even asked for a quieter table but she just looked around and offered nothing away from the station. Someone came out to dry cutlery and kept throwing them in the gray cutlery holder. The clashing was very annoying and went on for ages then a waitress started noisily taking them out to wrap place settings. This should be done in the kitchen not the dining room. Plus the swinging doors are very noisy. Lastly, there was a loud private event in the bar. At some point the door was opened and children and adults spilled into the restaurant with drinks and sat at tables without ordering food. They were loud with kids running about and no regard for diners. The door to the bar remained open. All in all it was not a pleasant nor an enjoyable atmosphere. The silverware was the worst. I will not eat or recommend the restaurant again.

My wife and I took our 2 teen age grand daughters for dinner prior to Mamma Mia.All was good except my wife's lobster mac and cheese had very little lobster in it. The server checked with the kitchen then told us the dish was supposed to contain 8 oz. of lobster,my wife had 1-2 oz. at most.the server was very understanding and deleted the dish from our bill. the other 3 entrees were very good.We would give them a second chance.

Nice ambience, and not too loud. Average service and pricing for an upscale restaurant, and not much for vegetarians, but overall, an nice spot for lunch or dinner if you are going to see a show at the Confederation centre!

Sadly our Mavor's experience was just "alright". My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and attending the evening performance. I chose Mavor's to ensure that we would be close by and at a restaurant accustomed to getting folks out in time to make the show. We were seated between the entrance and the bar so we were subject to the hustle and bustle of people being greeted and ice buckets being filled etc. The food and service was fine but in retrospect I wish that I had selected one of the other restaurants in the neighbourhood. We certainly did not have the experience that the photos and reviews led me to believe we might. My advice to prospective patrons would be to call and ensure that you get a table that suits you. Open table simply gives you a time slot.

We love eating here but our birthdays were made very special by server Melanie I think it was,teacher from Bluefield,her name escapes me at the moment! She was efficient ,very good at her job and a lot of fun,she made our experience extra special. She even tried to get us into the show! Great special too ,scallops chorizo on penne. Great night!

Our reservation was for 6:00 - dropped by at 5:00 to see if we could reserve an outdoor table. No. If we wanted to be sure to get an outside seat, we had to dine immediately (although the patio was completely empty). So we did and then had more than an hour to kill between leaving the restaurant and going to the show in the same building. No local craft beer on the menu, only mass produced popular brands. VERY limited selection of PEI wines. Will not go back until they do a better job of supporting local producers. Service was 'average', food was great and prices were fair.

The service was excellent. We had a reservation but weren't jazzed by our booth, so we were quickly and easily moved to a table with a view of the courtyard patio. The servers were very attentive and friendly. The scallops as a starter were delicious. My main (seared white fish) was overdone and the server insisted I order something else. They were busy so it took a bit for the kitchen to accommodate which was fine with me but the server automatically took an additional percentage off the bill.
I'd say the starters are more interesting and adventuruous while the mains are fairly typically prepared.
Nice evening out, nothing that blew me away except for the excellent service.

Overall our dining experience was good to great. Our waiter was very efficient and attentive. I had eaten there previously and had the fish n chips and it was top notch (white flaky fish, not a lot of batter) I was extremely excited to have it again on this visit but was disappointed this time. The batter was a little bit greasy and the fish was not as good a cut this time. I did eat most of it. The appetizer was great, we had the white bean dip and I absolutely loved the beet honey butter.

There were 7 of us this time and we all enjoyed our meals from Sweet potato fries to Lobster Mac and Cheese and salads. The 7 of us were fully satisfied then we were off to see Glenda's Kitchen. After having the chowder there the girls decided that we would get chowder at Mavors along with our meals next time and that speaks for itself. We all loved our table, server, food and ambiance at noon. Thank you to Mavors for making it another successful meal with friends. By the way, 5 of the girls were from Germany (1) , Ontario(3) and New York(1).. Far reaches for Mavors.
