Took my son. Good for families. He loved the mac and cheese! Good service. A little loud. Recommend a reservation.
Food was adequate. The place was noisy and service was a little slow.
Even with our Open Table reservation we had to wait 15 minutes to get seated. Took 20 minutes to get water and wine. Our entrees ( 2 seasonal entrees were delicious!) arrived BEFORE our beverages. DOINK! Thirsty Lion really needs to get an extra bartender for busy Friday nights. It was nice that Thirsty Lion took wine off of our bill to compensate. Would not go back for a relaxing date night on a Friday night.
We showed up for our online reservation and were told by the hostess that she couldn't find it.
I showed her the Open Table confirmation, and we were still turned away. We won't be going back soon.
One of my favorite restaurants!!
Thank you guys for amazing night as usual!! Love you guys!! 😘😘😘
I have written about this place several times some good some mediocre. On this visit the food was very good and the service was also very good. We liked several items off the new spring menu. The Ban Mi was excellent and the pad Thai was very good . Both had excellent flavor. If they can keep up this consistency we will be back more than occasionally.
This place was just too load and packed. Had a reservation and it still took an extra 20 minutes to get a table and the table I got was open the whole time. Must not have had enough workers to fill all the tables. Food was pretty good but I would not recommend the place if you want to have a conversation. Really loud and busy.
Be prepared for loud. It was very noisy when we ate there. The salads tasted good but had small portions. My husband did not feel full afterwards
Thirsty Lion has a diverse menu that has something for everyone. The food and service are consistently great. I really like the Ahi Tuna Salad and the beer selection.
One of our local go-to locations for good food. The music was a bit loud this visit, but still good experience.
I love the variety and quality of the food. Service was subpar in getting drinks. We didn’t hear about happy hour until the table next to us showed us the menu but was too late since we ordered. Music was really loud so conversation were challenging. Overall good! We will be back.
Music is a little loud, but everything else was great!
Had a great waiter! The stuffed dates were amazing and the Scotch Eggs were the best...haven’t had good ones like these since we were in Australia!
I'm always offended by the surcharge on the check as they seem to think that raising a food price is wrong. They should raise their prices and knock off this surcharge. It makes the restaurant look cheap and that they don't pay their help enough.
Very good meal. Rather crowded however service was still good.
I had lunch with a friend who had never been there. We had a wonderful lunch and true to form the food was good and service great. I have had many meals there over the past 4 years. The only concern has been the noise level, in the evening with music and trying to talk across a table. We visit your location at Tanasborne as it is closer to home, as well.
The only disappointing feature was the new "2% service fee" added to your bill to help compensate for minimum wage increase.
Great place good service happy atmosphere
St patties day. They were super busy, but the best part,the wait staff were happy to help , pleasant, and got our orders correct and the kitchen was fast in spite of the crowd
Everything was great except for being seated. Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait. After 20 minutes we asked what the wait was, and they no longer had a record of our reservation. They did immediately seat us, but the fact we had to wait with a reservation was disappointing.
Food was great, server was great
Great food, nice atmosphere, not so loud that you can’t have a decent conversation.
Great gastro pub food with a busy bar and restaurant atmosphere. Food is good and consistent. The service is quick and excellent. Great appetizer options.
I have only been to Thirsty Lion a few times, but every time I go, I am pleasantly surprised by the experience. I have tried several dishes now and all of them have been delicious! I love the cider on tap as well!
Reception-I made reservations with my request and was greeted and seated. Excellent !
Noise-A bit noisy, but that’s whats expected and makes it feel fun with the hustle and bustle.
Food-The California and Tuna rolls were good. The bacon wrapped shrimp was over cooked, the Hummus platter was okay with the exception that the cucumber/red peppers appeared wilted as if they were accidentally frozen and defrosted. Personally, that should not have ever been served in the first place.
Food and service have slipped recently.
It was very busy so our service was a little slower than usual. To make up for that, we were comped one of the appetizers that was ordered -- a nice and appreciated gesture. As always, the food was delicious and our server top notch.
First time here. Wonderful food. Sooo busy. I’ll be back
We had not been here in a while for us. we used to go once a week but had been very spotty on food quality. I was glad we did . Tried the poke stack something we had actually never had there and believe it was new to the menu. It was bordering on excellent and would have been except fried noodle crisps served with it were obviously stale. However that said the dish itself was very good.
We also had the Chicken Waldorf salad and an appetizer. These were both perfect. We were impressed enough to put this restaurant back on our regular rotation
I didn't have luck with the risotto, had to send it back twice. First it was super oily, second it had a vinegar flavor that I couldn't get past. Our server was very sweet about it and took it off our bill and said she would communicate our displeasure to chef. Hope they fixed the issue.
This visit was the best at this location in a long time. We made a reservation that seemed to help with the attitude of the greeters. The service was excellent but is usually slow. Love the menu and location. The service seems to be getting better, thankfully.
We go here all the time after work and they never disappoint! From the food to the service to the awesome management team. They make you feel like family!!
This day was my birthday and they were extra awesome to me and my friends.... got a free sundae for my birthday and card signed by the staff.
Food was good. Salads are way overpriced. Waiter was fantastic.
We went for daughters birthday great food and a great time
Great food and service, but a bit loud for our conversations.
We made a reservation and were seated within 10 minutes of arriving.
Our server was great, the food was great! We will be back!
Beer Cheese Soup and Salmon Cakes oh my!
We love Thirsty Lion and eat there often. We always have a good time and usually love the food. I wish I had ordered my usual choice, I had the seasonal Mediterranean Salad and it was not good! Oh well. Back to the usual choice next time.
Food was good. The service was really good. The venue is really loud which makes it difficult for a business meeting but everything else about the venue is perfect for a business lunch.
