    Two of the four members of our party had issues with their food (one incorrect, the other late because it was dropped off at the wrong table and had to be remade).

    CatalystResponded on June 10, 2022Thank you for your review Bort. I'm sorry to hear that there were issues with your food order, and will be sure to review this with the team. The Catalyst team is passionate about delivering an outstanding guest experience, and I'm sure that your next visit will reflect this.

    We were plesantly surprised that the food was very good. We would definitely go back. Our only complaint was the music. The staff did not do a sound check so the musicians were so loud we could barely talk through our meal. We asked many people to help but none of them knew how to manage the situation. I am hoping that the team can better manage the entertainment in the future.

    CatalystResponded on June 10, 2022Thank you for your review. Thrilled to hear that you loved the food, and look forward to hosting you and your guests again! The audio situation has been resolved.

    Amazing food! Super great value. Just some issues with the projector playing the hockey game, but I think they’re getting it fixed.

    CatalystResponded on June 10, 2022Thank you for the 5-stars! The AV issues are all sorted, and we have some great live music nights lined up. Hope to see you back in for another visit sometime soon.

    Terrible that even though you enter with a member, guests still have ti pay a fee even if they are just dining.

    CatalystResponded on June 10, 2022Did you know that you will receive a full credit for the guest day-pass fee once you spend $50 at Catalyst Kitchen & Cocktails. Make a full day out of it, and build in a workout or a studio class session, some 'me' time in the spa amenities, and then a tasty meal at Catalyst.

    Booked but they’re not open. No one reached out to cancel. I had to find out for myself. Why have bookings available if the restaurant is not yet open?

    CatalystResponded on June 10, 2022I'm sorry to hear that there was a mix up Katie. Catalyst Kitchen & Cocktails is now in full swing, and we would love to host you and your friends. Join us for some live music, or a weekend brunch.
