    Service would have been 5 stars if it wasn’t for the host, sighing when we asked for a different table and overall making us feel like we were a bother. Not something you want to hear/feel when you are spending money in the establishment.Our server made up for it, he was wonderful and turned a worrying night into a lovely one. Food was alright, ambiance was wonderful, service (server) was fantastic. Would we go back? Maybe, leaning more to yes.

    The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars overall is because of the service. We were not greeted in a very friendly manner at the door. I asked if I would be ok parking on the street because the machine wouldn’t allow me to pay and he said “I guess you’ll find out when you leave!” His tone was not friendly. We were not impressed with our waiter either. He was not friendly. He barely made eye contact and seemed uninterested and distracted the entire time. Always glancing around as if he had somewhere else to be. Granted, we went on a holiday but the staff should still be friendly. The food on the other hand was amazing! We all loved our meals! I want to go back because of the food but if we have the same experience with the staff I won’t be recommending it to anyone anymore.

    Appetizers and Entrees were absolutely stunning, main course also proved the high quality of cooking, however pizza turned out to be dark and burnt at the bottom and soggy inside, when it was pointed out to the waiter, there was only an argument presented "we make it on firewood", which absolutely great, however opinion of a customer wasn't heard nor reacted upon, even if the taste is burnt and quite obvious. I'd definitely give 5 stars review if the waiter could taste himself and dig into a problem, however problem-solving skills weren't shown. Thank you for the pleasant evening!

    Lovely building. The service was inconsistent. Rushed at the beginning and then neglected. The glassware was oversized for the cocktail and wine. The steak in the beef and beet salad was excellent but there weren’t many beets. The fried chicken club and fries were very good but the salmon was disappointing. It was overpowered by a thick sauce over everything and the flavours of the dish didn’t work well together. Had to ask for coffee but it wasn’t very good. Not sure why we were asked if we were celebrating something if it it wasn’t going to be acknowledged.

    Nice atmosphere, I would recommend for date night, drinks with friends, or group dinners. They have some really great quality food options, a little bit unique and not that large of a variety of things to choose from on the menu so I probably would not recommend for picky eaters. Drinks were good. Fair price.

    The nostalgic appearance was well worth it. The location was historic and the staff were amazing. The menu was small but all our choices were great. I personally have never been a better crispy chicken sandwich anywhere in this city. Hats off to all. Take care be safe.

    Really nice character of the building, wasn't too busy during the lunch I was there for so it was neither loud nor crowded. I can imagine the noise level being far higher if the restaurant was busier though. The food was tasty and filling (had pizzas).

    Brought appy with main dish, fries were cold asked for sandwich to be cut in 3 but brought it cut into two and she brought us a knife to do it ourselves which was very difficult to do with fries on the plate. Asked for salt and pepper she only brought salt. She said supervisor was going to come speak with us and he never did. She took my coffee and 2 cones off the bill. Very disappointed for a $75 lunch

    Waiter was wonderful! It was too loud though. Not sure why everyone forgets to use a normal tone? Never experienced that level of noise here before. Prices are too high, my pickerel and fries were on the cold side, I did not complain though, still tasty! Waiter, again, was great. Pretty, comfortable, classy decor.

    Had pizza, pear and prosciutto. The cheese was quite soggy and the pizza itself was bland. My wife had the chicken and quinoa salad. She said it was quite good although not a huge portion of chicken. The other 2 in our foursome had pasta. One was chicken and chorizo and he said it was nicely spiced. The other pasta was pretty basic. Waiter was good. Once the restaurant filled up, the noise level got a little too loud for my liking.
