The only disappointment was the appetizer - the meat platter was disappointing. It was served on a plate with various meats (3 kinds) and two bread sticks. Not a highlight. However, the main courses and desserts made up for it. The service was top notch.

Wonderful restaurant in distillery. Great value and delicious. Interesting space. Friendly knowledgeable server. We were neither rushed nor waiting too long. No problem getting a reservation and it looked like there were plenty of tables available for walk ins - which is unusual in the distillery. I will make this a regular when I am in the area for a concert or play.

The food was great. I tried some different items and was not let down. Great prices! Wine selection was limited but tasted great. Wine prices are slightly high in comparison to the price point for the food. Food price is around mid-teens to 20's while the wine starts at mid-teens for a 5oz. Doesn't quite match up in my opinion. I would definitely recommend and will be back.

We had a lovely dinner on a weekday. The appetizers were a lovely start. Definitely recommend the chicken main, it was excellent! My husband tried the pork and quite enjoyed it too.. We both relished our desserts, there were lovely little touches added to the dishes. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. We'd definitely come here again.

Despite the local quality story from our server, the food was food court quality. This is such a nice looking place and hopefully someone takes it over bring the food up to the ambiance.

We went on a Sunday night following Luminato and Sunday is a good night because it was quiet. I had the fish special, my husband the veal. The came hot and fresh, tastefully displayed and very good. its located right at the beginning of the Distillery and we have been consistently pleased.

I was a little surprised that an Italian restaurant had no red Italian wines on the menu. The food was tasty but not outstanding. The upside was that our first table was freezing from a draft from the open door to the patio, and the staff was very accommodating about moving us. Also our dad who needs an accessible restaurant was easily able to manoeuvre and there was an accessible washroom.

We ate outside on the patio, had great service from a very cheery waiter. The food was scrumptious - local & freshly made pasta.

Lovely space in the Distillery District. Very quiet for a Friday night. The space is inviting the wait staff friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. I was surprised there weren’t more customers when we were there. I’d definitely go back next time we’re in The Big T.

There was an odd smell in the restaurant - not sure if it was from the kitchen or surrounding area, but it was quite palpable. The service was excellent, but I was not impressed by the menu. I ordered fish and the only real fish option was Sea Bream. It was cooked nicely, but really had nothing to it. The meal was just kinda "blah".

The food was slow out of the kitchen. From when our starter plates were collected it took over 1 hour to get our main course. Staff weren’t that apologetic. The Spaghetti was incredibly garlicky, to the point that it made myself and my wife ill the next day. Safe to say we will not be coming back.

Should have let guests in who arrived 5-10 mins early for their reservation rather than make them wait outside. Food (braised beef) lacked seasoning, even with added pepper by waitress. Waitress was not very attentive.

I enjoyed the winterlicious menu - the food was delicious! The only downfall was the cold draft from the door and the service seemed very speedy - as if they were in a rush to get us done and out the door. I still had my appetizer in front of me when my main came and we were never asked if we wanted anything else, we were just given the bill. But when we did make requests, it came quickly! The servers were kind.

The hostess was not friendly. She took longer than usual to bring the meals and never bothered to Check on our table. The appetizer was pasta and was not fully cooked. The desert had a taste of vinegar lingering, don’t know if it due to the plate and spoons not washed properly or they put vinegar in their desert! Would NOT recommend.

We did winterlicious at Archeo for our first time experience there. The space looked nice and was decorated well.

Our table was positioned too close to the entrance, and it was freezing everytime the door opened. This was not an ideal location for a table in the winter.

The food was overall underwhelming compared to other winterlicious experiences I have had. The short rib and sea bream were good. The farfalle was under cooked.

The service was not great. Two of our group order short ribs and they didn't come out at the same time. The server apologized for the poor service but nothing was done.

I would not recommend it due to the experience I had there.

When a Server came up to take our order, we asked if there was a cocktail menu. He said he wasn't familiar with the menu as he just helping out and was not usual staff and that he would send someone over to take our drink order. After a while trying get someone's attention we finally got a cocktail menu. But things were already downhill at this point. The cocktails were no up to scratch. We ordered the ravioli, lobster pasta and pasta bolognese. The lobster pasta was good. I would avoid the rest. The price point does not match the quality of food. I would give this place a miss. They should have closed on Christmas eve rather than staying open and giving customers poor service.

Great service. Food is delicious and bursting with flavors. However, don’t go hungry; portion sizes are bite-sized not a whole lot of value for what you pay.
