Had higher expectations. Food was average at best, service was Ok, but had to ask about dessert and coffee ?? Was outside in covered area was is fine, but Biggest issue was Music was so loud on Saturday night couldn’t hear any form of any conversation from anyone including our waitress. Forget the kind of music wasn’t for any kind of decent establishment.

The food was wonderful, really enjoyed eating here. The service however was a bit lacking. Offered appetisers and when declined those was assumed we didn’t want any food. Then finally ordered and the food was delicious. After the mains were cleared no offering of desserts/coffees was just handed the bill. Was a mix up with the drinks that we ordered.

Food was brilliant minus the service.

Staff was amazing the second time around. Very welcoming and made sure all our needs were met.

The portion size during happy hour exceeded my expectations. They were pretty big portions.

I ordered the prime steak and had to spit out half of it as it was not eatable. It also took quite some time for us to get the drinks we had ordered.

We had a few hiccups with our order but the staff where so responsive and apologetic. As a result what could have been an awfull dining experience, ended up being an exceptional one due to the server we had. I wish I could remember her name as she truly went above and beyond and had an amazing attitude to go along with it.

Very tasty. Nice atmosphere! We enjoyed cauliflower tacos and the salad with shrimp and sprouts was wonderful. The Maitre’d Mathew ( if I recall correctly) was very friendly and we enjoyed talking to him. The waitress inadvertently brought us fish tacos and immediately replaced them with the cauliflower tacos and did not charge us for the tacos at all. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! .

A mistake was made where our mains came right after the appetizers were brought to our table. We did not complain at all but I think one of the waitresses realized that and 5 minutes later the manager was at our table to advise us that the appetizers will be complimentary. Wow ... that is service.

I arrived on time for the hostess to tell me she made a mistake and gave my table away. I was hosting a business lunch with someone who flew in from NYC. Very embarrassing. Instead of saying “but we have another table for you” then simply just said we gave your reservation away. I literally had to say “I’m sure you can find me another table, I’ll wait here.” To which she replied “it’s going to be about 30 mins.” NOT ACCEPTABLE. It was noon and there was a line up of people behind me with resos as well waiting to be seated. I literally had to insist on getting a table. The crazy thing is I’m a regular, my partner is also a regular and so are all our friends. Because I’m a regular, tip generously and generally really sweet to all the servers and staff they think they can pull this crap. Cactus will be getting our business across the street.

Waitress and bartender were great. Lucked out with a happy hour at the bar before our table was ready. Once we got to the table, the drinks took awhile to come along with our food. Maybe peak dinner rush? Would go again. Could have just been an off night

Warm welcome, however, they seemed to kiss checking me in on OpenTable as the hostess became somewhat flustered when she saw one of our party was in a wheelchair. She excused herself to set up our table and we were seated promptly (although I had to correct the no-show the next day). Music was deafening, but they seemed to turn the volume down about 45 minutes into the meal as the restaurant emptied.
Since this is a ‘test kitchen’, the menu is very extensive (about 10 dishes not yet on other locations’ menus), and rather than separate menus for vegetarian and gluten free, it’s all side by side. Wednesday’s are half price wine bottles, and we enjoyed a Laughingstock Portfolio blend. Their Supersonic G&T is a specialty.
The sushi, salads, veggie burger sliders and cauliflower tacos were perfect, and a baked to order rustic apple pie with maple ice cream was the perfect end to a meal with US visitors (although the server raved about the banana bread pudding being back for a limited time)!
Always a great meal at a fair price with excellent service.

Overall it was good. The server did forget my drink but he was able to help me out.
The restaurant was able to accommodate my reservation a day before when the other restaurants didn't accept reservations.
I will come back again in the future.

We were on an hour lunch break. The restaurant was very busy. The server showed up at our table within moments of our being seated and she was friendly and funny. Food was arrived at our table very quickly and was hot and tasty when it arrive. It was rather noisy in there everyone having to speak extra loud to be heard.
