Luke's in Kingston

I've been to Luke's several times as I used to travel to Kingston for business (I live in Montreal). I've been with many different people and allof my experiences were amazing. I didn't find his mother pretentious at all - very friendly and very proud and I can't blame her for that pride. The charcuterie is excellent and the innovative twist on some of the dishes were fun. This is a warm little restaurant with a family that rusn it that is passionate about local food... Can't find fault with that! A definite recommend.

What's the best place for breakfast in Montreal

McKiernan's on Notre Dame... The most amazing Brunch choices on Saturday only. Fresh, unique and SOOOO good! You can't go wrong.

PUB BURGUNDY LION

I am surprised to see some of the bad experiences people have had. We've been at least 25+ times in the last year since they opened and the experienceswe have had have always been good. The owners are great, the wait staff and bartenders know their stuff and the food fresh. It's a casual place that is perfect for that end of the workday drink and an occasional bite - just what a pub is supposed to be.
I agree that the owners are extremely open to feedback and based on past experiences I am sure that they would be grateful for the feedback.

Restaurant Openings - 2009

M husband and I had the exact same experience. The place had been open two weeks and they had 4 servers on... Other than one really hard working guy the other 3 seemed more interested in chatting with friends than serving. One pizza was burnt and the other was ok but just ok. With the bad and very slow service (over an hour to get the pizza) I was hoping that at least the food would be good. Given that Geppetto's is owned by the same owner as Limon it isn't a surprise that the quality of service and food is the same as Limon's (slow and bland). I am really disappointed as it would have been great to have a little pizzeria on this strip. Oh well, I will be sticking to the Joe Beef 3 and the Burgundy Lion instead!
