    Too pricy for what they offer! They rushed us because they wanted to close. My husband ordered another dish, and they agreed to bring for him before kitchen closure, and they kept coming to the table asking if we wanted it packed to go! At once, we had 2 servers asking the same question! And the bill was $500 for 2 for a very average food. I will not go back!

    I took a friend out for a birthday here last night and it made quite an impression. The atmosphere, food and service were all high end excellent. I ordered Carpaccio for the appetizer along with a side Green salad and Salmon for the main course with a side of Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Pesto. Everything was done to perfection and the service was exceptional. The only problem (for us) was that the portion sizes were generous and so we didn't have room for a desert afterwards. All in all very highly recommended

    Very delicious food. Very acceptable noise level. Friendly wait staff although they delivered desserts on two separate occasions that were meant for a different table and promptly took them away.

    Service was very good, however there were issues with the drinks (ordered an Old Fashioned cocktail and it was very diluted without much flavour. I had ordered the drink on the waiter's recommendation and when I told him it was mediocre at best he said that there is a bartender in training he wasnt aware of and would let her know, yet he did nothing about it for me and did not comp and/or replace the $22 beverage - not a great start) As far as the food goes, I have eaten at a lot of the finer restaurants in Toronto, particularly for Italian cuisine, and I can say that every dish our party of 4 received was just average, nothing great and very generic. The flavour profiles were very basic and presentation was average. For the prices they are charging I would not recommend this restaurant unfortunately. There are MANY way better alternatives in this range of pricing. We did not stay for coffee and desserts due to the lack of quality up to that point. Very disappointing.
