A most pleasing discovery. Picked on a whim for a special occasion - couldn’t have picked any better. Had a very friendly atmosphere in which to enjoy tasty cocktails and appetizer. Followed by a delicious main that we shared. Had a hard time picking from so many choices we wanted. Recommend the charcuterie app - perfect! Going back...!

Two of the three diners are not fish or seafood lovers however we found something on the menu and thoroughly enjoyed it (Poblano-Chickpea Tacos & Invierno Salad with Chicken). My husband had fish & fries and claims that it is the best fish he has ever had.
The lighting and ambiance of the restaurant was very nice.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will visit it again when I am in Kingston.

Slow service even though it appeared to not be that busy! The food was slow coming also and was definitely overpriced for what you received!
Rather disappointing actually!

We ate dinner on a Sunday night and were told that couple of dinner choices and appetizers were not available as run out of the ingredients and they were waiting for delivery which I guess that comes early week. The least they could do was offer us discount or free appetizer to make up for this. They were about to bring out our main dinner and one of the side dishes was not available as that the ingredients were not available. They should have told us that when we placed our order. Rest of the food was good and our waitress busted her butt to meet our needs. I would think the resultant needs to make sure they have the ingredients to make the dishes and appetizer on their menu.

Interesting brisket presentation - served shredded as "make your own taco" with coleslaw and salad. Brisket is smoked on site with a coffee/chocolate marinade. Flavourful but rather tough. Crab cakes were excellent. Good draft craft beer choices. Wait staff were great.

I made my reservation on line and had no problem. We arrived at the designated time and were promptly led to our table. My wife eats Gluten Free and the waitress explained all her options and then gave us time to make our decision. The waitress was very attentive and courteous. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends. The fish chowder was amazing.

We had dinner-- the fish & chips (haddock) - crispy batter just the right thickness & the mixta salad with grilled tuna. Black beans, corn, mixed greens, etc. YUM! - the tune had crispy edges and was tender inside -- I could cut it with a fork. The mixta salad with the added grilled tuna is a Weightwatchers Freestyle 0 pts dinner except for the roll & a bit of light salad dressing, and of course the wine! Even the Happy Hour bucket of mussels with the curry sauce was great, maybe a couple of WW pts if that. Too full for dessert. Waitress was attentive and patient with our late arrival & smart to order our mains at the same time as our appetizer, even though they were served separately. Will probably go back for lunch with a group soon.

Food was and service fine, and the beer was good with a nice local selection. But what made me look twice (when the bill came) was the 2 X $4.00 charge (for the 1 soda pop each) that my kids had..? Wow, they almost could have had a beer for the same price.. too bad they are still under age!
Sorry kids, lets just order water next time, and we'll just smuggle your colas in.. Doh!

The food was excellent and so was the service. I had the fish and chips and it was very good.
It had a light batter and plenty of fish and was not oily. My wife had the tacos and loved them.
We would definitely go back on our next visit.
The place gets full very fast, so reservations are recommended .

It was my husband's second visit but my first. Our main courses were quite good ( tuna steak and brisket/chicken combo) but a little pricey for value. Our appetizer was a real disappointment and after one bite sent it back . On the menu it was described as a spicy tequila infused shrimp dish for two, but it had no flavour and the shrimp tasted over boiled and rubbery.
Our server was very accommodating, apologetic and took the item off our bill.
