Was expecting a bit more for the obience. The outside is gorgeous. Tables kind of close and cramped in. Quite noisy on a Saturday night. Food was very good.

Overall our experience was good. We were promptly seated when arrived. Service was very good for a busy night. My steak was overdone but the server quickly replaced the steak and at the end of the meal, a complimentary dessert was provided. My biggest issue with the night was the location of the table. With open proximity to the entrance of the restaurant and in close proximity to the greeting area of the restaurant the cold breeze every time the door was opened and when busy, the feeling of having guests so close to you when eating was not ideal. For the sake of one table my recommendation is to remove this table and open up the area for guest reception and comfort of their guests. We have visited this restaurant a number of times, our favourite; but, I had always dreaded sitting in this location (especially in the winter).

My favourite restaurant in the county, hands down. The food is always consistently spectacular and the servers make a note of remembering their clientelle. I like that.

I've been to this restaurant several times and have yet to be disappointed with either food, service, ambiance or value.
Our first visit for dinner yielded the same opinion. 2 of our party had the 8oz steak, I had the daily special of coconut curry flank steak on pasta (it was fantastic) and the 4th person had chicken parmesean. We all paired it with a side caesar salad. All of us were stuffed but very happy with our selections.
Our waitress was phenomenal....friendly, efficient and funny.
Will definitely go back and can recommend for both lunch and dinner.

This restaurant has a great selection and I love their seasonal menu!! The selection of wine & beer is also diverse with something for everyone. Our waitress remembers us every time we return and our two birthday girls at the table were treated to dessert which was a very special touch!! I tell everyone about this little gem and will continue to visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere, and we were thrilled that they gave a free birthday dessert to our 96 year old aunt. Only wish they had handicap parking closer to the entrance. It was a long walk from the parking lot for my aunt. They let us exit through a side door and the car was brought up closer in the parking lot for the greenway path. This made for a shorter walk.

Appetizers were bland. Scallops weren’t cooked well. Steak needed to be returned as it was undercooked. The chicken Marsala was mushy and lacked flavour.

I have always been a big fan of this restaurant and have never been disappointed with the food or service. My favourite part is still the warm bread and dipping sauce. I normal visit this restaurant once or twice a year. The only downside is sometimes in the winter there can be a slight chill if you sit by the door. I highly recommend this restaurant. I had the Tuscan chicken and my husband had the Rack of Lamb.

Happy to have a few vegan friendly options on the menu. Would suggest dairy free milk alternatives (almond, coconut or soy) for coffee and tea drinkers, as well as beverages for family members with dairy allergies.

The mushroom walnut soup disliked by 2 of us and returned. Soup and entrée came together. Would have preferenced soup before entree by 1 of us. Reubens enjoyed by 2 of us. Little pricey for lunch and did not expect most items to be Ala carte.

Enjoyed the setting. Complaints of cold draft from open door.
