As always, Spot On was spot on. It's a great neighbourhood eating venue, friendly staff offering a wide range of goodies.

First visit to the Steak House. Food served super fast, maybe a bit too fast! No time to enjoy the company and conversation. Remember, Spot On, people go there for more than just the food/service!! Food was very good and in the right amounts. Service to the table was very good with polite servers. Two issues - 1) you are rushed out in a set time. not cool and even more not cool to be told that you only have 15 mins left!! C'mon guys. 2) the waiters/servers were standing not far from us and were just....standing there. Perhaps waiting for us to move out or finish or whatever. It didn't feel right to have people standing not far from us just looking. Almost creepy. Surely they can do something out back or keep moving!
Overall, very good. We'll go back.

It was very nice coming to your restaurant for dinner - it looked nice, had a competent young man serving us, food was nice - smallish portions
- I had the Korean poppers - not really a dinner choice, more children’s menu two people had steak - which they enjoyed - one person had the quinoa with chicken which they said was delicious
Desert was over generous, chocolate mouse was enough to feed 4, sticky date was also too big
Better to have choices of sides than such big - deserts - I think -

SERVICE WAS FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT, GOOD HUMOURED

WE WERE A PARTY OF ELEVEN, FIRST CUSTOMERS, FOR A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

MY FRIED EGGS ARRIVED QUICKLY - AND WERE COLD!

PRECOOKED, THEN TOO-BRIEFLY MICROWAVED?

APPALLED, DISAPPOINTED, EMBARRASSED AS HOST

Spot On is always spot on. The food is very tasty and presented attractively. Since Covid the choice is narrower (and understandably more expensive), but everything on the menu looks delicious. The staff are welcoming and attentive, and parking is easy. What's not to like!
