We came for winter dine and wow, we were blown away by the the quality of the prime rib. Your chef did an amazing job preparing the meal, everything was wonderful. Your wait staff did a wonderful job, serving and checking on our table to ensure that we were all taken care of.

We had the Winterdine, a 3 course meal at a set price. The app was a corn chowder which was excellent. The main featured blue dot prime rib which outstanding with roasted veg. Desert was a chocolate torte which was also very good. A good wine list with nice range (although they had sold out of a couple wines because they were so busy). Excellent meal. This is a favourite spot of ours.

Was advised by server that you had to have clams with the special pork chop item. Why?
However, was advised that there was no clams available with the seafood item and were to be replaced with mussels???
A little confusing!

You really want to know?! First, no one answered my query re Meatless and GF offerings. I asked the question with my online reservation.
The room was cold. And isn't it about time those dour paintings were stored or hung somewhere else. About the paintings . . . at least two surnames were misspelled!! And it's theremust be someone still living who knows the name of that Flanagan fellow!?
My coffee cup had a chip on the rim. It was replaced immediately. The table was very wobbly. We fixed it ourselves. The fod was hmmmm - okay. The server was accommodating and friendly.

The only issue I had was with the hostess, in that she was having a personal conversation with another staff member near the kitchen entrance and I waited about 5 minutes before she turned and realized I was standing there. I did speak to her on the matter and she apologized.

We ate at Mavors as part of New Years celebrations. It was cold out so after 2 hours of outside activities we went to Mavors half an hour before the reservation. This was not a problem and they were able to start the meal. The fixed menu was so diverse that anyone would have enjoyed the meal. All of the meats- beef tenderloin, duck and shrimp were perfectly cooked.
We plan on including dinner at Mavors as part of our next years celebration.

We come to the restaurant quite often and we usually enjoy ourselves and we are usually going to the theatre and always get seated quickly and get to the show in plenty of time without feeling rushed by the staff. We had a table booked for 5.30pm and was running late and rang the restaurant to let them know and a gentleman was very kind and said do not worry but on arriving we tried to order a drink first and were informed that we had to order everything at once as we were late and they had to make sure that we got to the theatre in time, we still had 1hr half and we told the lady that we were sorry and had rang someone and if we had to leave in the middle of dinner, no worries out fault due to the weather but it seemed a big issue with her and kept trying to rush us. It did not ruin out evening but will be going elsewhere from now on, found her rude and made to feel like we were totally in the wrong for being late, in the bad weather and thought I was being good for calling and we were only 15 minutes late.

We reserved for 6 pm before the 730 show. Our food that was ordered at 615 showed up at 725. The show had started by the time we inhaled our meals and made our way inside the theatre. Disappointing. Waitress was friendly but it was apparent they didnt have enough wait staff on since her visits were few and far between. We were given 25% off our bill and dessert after the show which we decined. What we tasted of the food was good though. Good enough to perhaps try it again...if we have plenty of time to spare.

Food was very ogood as usual . Server was very helpful with suggestions when asked, a great smile and sense of humour. Unfortunately had to many tables to look after resulting in a 20 minute delay in getting The bill. We were not alone as there were at least 4. Tables in our area who were experiencing the same wait, once received it was a cake walk to pay. Thank you Mavor's for the experience, will be back.

Our experience at Mavors was absolutely out of this world. Our server, Melanie, was extremely knowledgeable in the history of the Brian Burke Paintings, with special consideration payed to the portrait above table #22. It was a pleasure to have her serve us. Thank you, Melanie

Krysten was a great server - one of the best I've ever had. She was so welcoming, pleasant, and it was obvious she wanted us to enjoy our time together as a family as well as the food. I had booked a table of 3 but ended up with an extra guest and there was absolutely no hint of this being an inconvenience. She immediately said "no problem, we will make that work!" and set up another place setting very quickly. She was patient and helpful, almost felt like she was a friend of the family. Thanks so much, Krysten and all of the staff. The food was tasty too and water was kept filled by another server. :)

Food was good; however, service was slow - many table who arrived after us were served their main meals before us. (Not sure what the hold up was, was not informed and did not bother to ask).
We booked an earlier time as we planned to attend a show that night - sure glad we did.

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.
