Free parking on the street after 6pm. We got the restaurant after 7pm and it was pretty busy so we felt great not going for 6pm. We started with the truffle fries and shared the sweet potato gnocchi and the 10 loop pizza. Loved everything. Will definitely be going back to try other options.

This used to be a favourite restaurant of ours when in the Brampton area, but wow has quality slipped. Prices are still up there (lunch - $20/adult) but the quality of the food has greatly diminished.

Table service is still excellent, and the ambiance is still there, but the food quality has dropped significantly.
No chicken breast. The chicken balls were doughy, soggy and with a tiny cube of chicken in the centre. Other items were overcooked. Chocolate truffle cake was extremely dry. The grilled steak was rubbery and tasteless. When my wife complained to the grill chef about the steak, he replied that many people were complaining.
Also...enough with the greetings – “Welcome to Mandarin”...“Welcome to Mandarin”. It’s nice to be welcomed, once or twice – but after 6-8-10 times, you are just being annoying !

My son had planned on a destination wedding and unfortunately a few weeks before, he found out that they would need to get legally married in Canada first. I had 3 weeks to find a nice restaurant that would be able to accommodate 14 people in a private dining room. I contacted Terrace on the Green and received a response quickly. I was offered different menu options or a la carte options. I was invited to come to the restaurant to have a look at the room options as well. I was made to feel that they really cared about making our dinner special even though we only had 14 guests. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, everyone in the group felt welcomed and taken care of. We had 3 seniors (with walkers and even an oxygen tank) who can be difficult to please, but they were all extremely happy and loved their food. The ramp and wheelchair accessible washroom close by was an added plus. Melissa was our server and was very attentive and friendly. She even went running quickly to get Nana a champagne glass of ginger ale so she wouldn't miss the toast to the bride and groom. Between the 14 of us, we ordered the salmon, lamb, new york striploin and chicken Marsala. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their entire meals: the soup, salads, entrees, dessert and beverages. The food here is excellent, the fixed menu price was very reasonable for such high quality food and the staff are friendly and offer great service. If you are looking to book an event or just having a special night out, I would highly recommend the Terrace on the Green restaurant in Brampton.

Heard many great reviews from friends and decided to try this place. The atmosphere is wonderful. The restaurant underwent a renovation and it looks beautiful, upscale and clean. Staff are professional and friendly. The food was unbelievable took me back to Italy. I had the manicotti and it literally melted in my mouth. Definetly worth a visit.

Our 6 private dining rooms, which can accommodate a range of 8 to 80 guests, are the perfect venue for your wedding, corporate or family function.

Aria also offers a deliciously revamped menu, focusing on New American cuisine made from the freshest ingredients available, while also reflecting on the seasonal bounty of Ontario&apos;s many farms.

Went there recently and its plain and simply your typically way over priced and underwhelming French style restaurant, 14 bucks for a simple Caesar salad, COME ON!!! All entries are at least double what they should cost, ridiculous!!! 30-50 bucks for an entree dish that leaves you hungry due to the dismal portion size!! Again ridiculous!!! There's a sucker born every minute and I was one of them but not anymore!!! Appetizers that have an entree price, crazy!!! Simple mashed potatoes on an entree that costs 40 bucks, WTF!!! Not worth the money for sure!!! The only difference between the owner of this place and the Lone Ranger is he doesn't wear a mask!!! Rip off city!!!

Heritage Fish & Chips

Reviewed By Peter H - Brampton, Canada

Had lunch here on Monday past, yesterday with an acquaintance. Very basic styling nothing to wright home about, table not properly cleaned salt and pepper and other stuff obviously not thoroughly cleaned. Ordered two of the SO CALLED LUNCH SPECIALS, one coke and an iced tea. $25 bucks, I think that's pretty high for fish and chips!!! The food was good but again how do you screw up fried fish and chips, the food portion was ok but in my opinion overpriced for what you're getting all the same!!! It's arguably one of the best for fish and chips but has become overpriced!!!

Canelli's Italian Eatery

Our Story In May of 2000, the original owners of Brampton&apos;s first pizza and pasta houses opened Canelli&apos;s Italian Eatery. The Brampton landmark, Queen&apos;s Pizzeria, was known for serving traditional Italian recipes, quality ingredients and hosting service. Queen&apos;s is now a nameplate in Brampton&apos;s history and remembered by many. Canelli&apos;s has filled the hearts of people looking for quality, homestyle Italian food. Our menu hosts a variety of antipasti, classic pasta dishes, homemade pizzas, seafood, grilled meat and fresh dessert. We pair traditional classics with an extensive beer and wine list, for a perfectly balanced meal. Our pizza dough, sauces, dressings and selection of desserts are made in-house staying true to the classic recipes that founded Queen&apos;s Pizzeria. Ask around and many residents of Brampton will remember the Volkswagen Beatles that zipped around town delivering piping hot dinner. Knowing that people still appreciate traditional, quality food, Canelli&apos;s offers classics with a fresh face.

We've been to this restaurant several times and the food is always consistent and delicious. They often have deals on Wagjag, so $15 gets you $30 worth of food, so this can be helpful to decrease the cost of your bill
I usually get seafood (mussels, grilled calamari, or pesce alla griglia) since I don't make it at home. Our visit on Saturday I ordered pesce alla griglia and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. Friends ordered antipasto mediterraneo and calamari fritti to share, and both dishes were delicious. The calamari comes with two dipping sauces, which would appeal to various tastes. The antipasto has a really nice selection and would be perfect as a meal unto itself. My husband ordered veal parmigiana and the portion was huge....a doggie bag was required.
My friend and I split tiramisu, which was quiet large and very tasty. There would be no way that either of us could have finished that on our own.
The only small downside on this visit was our waitress wasn't attentive and didn't come back to refill drinks. When she brought the bread she only brought butter, and didn't bring oil and vinegar for dipping until most of us already finished. She seemed inexperienced and was quite busy in her section so perhaps she was overwhelmed. I overheard her mention to someone in our group (there was nine of us) that the tip was already included on the bill (which I disagree with), but she didn't mention it to me or my friend. I wouldn't have noticed that so thankfully I overheard and was able to tell my friend.
