Food was excellent as always and I love the high top seating. Service was very attentive but not overbearing. Good value for the money. Drinks are a little pricey.

We had a wonderful dinner at 147. The food was delicious and the service was great! We had an appetizer that wasn’t fully cooked, but upon telling our server we were quickly brought a new one! A great experience and we will be back again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Friday visit to 147. Damien was an excellent server, knowledgeable and attentive. Damien recommended the perfect wine for our table. Everyone enjoyed their meal from appetizer to dessert. Great locally sourced ingredients. One thing to note, the appetizer portions are large so keep in mind when ordering that they are better shared by 2 or more people.

We ate at 147 on a Friday night and it was packed which is OK, but the noise level was terrible. We could not talk with our friends and be heard.
The Lasagna was not good - very mushy. Caesar salad was awful - fishy tasting with a very bland oil and vinegar dressing. There was one small piece of pancetta on the salad - since two people were splitting it, two would have been better. The lettuce was fresh and crisp.
The chicken cacciatore was quite good, as was the shrimp cocktail and the halibut/shrimp special.
Wine was $12 per glass for what I like.
This restaurant should install some noise reducing fabrics as there are a lot of people packed in to a small place and it is too noisy.
Overpriced for what you get. If the noise level was reduced, the food improved slightly, and the tables a little further apart, it might be OK. This place wants to be upscale but they are not quite there yet in my opinion.
The waiters were friendly, attentive and polite.

Excellent food for sure, was kind of disappointed that even after making reservations online we waited which is fine, it was busy, but I did reserve a high top table and didn’t get it. I understand the limitations but our table kinda sucked right by the food service window. Maybe with the expansion these very small little issues won’t happen. Otherwise it was spectacular!!!

Great food but do not get seated at the tables near to the open kitchen. It completely kills the atmosphere. Open kitchens are not necessary. Also, wait staff is somewhat aloof.

We love this restaurant but for whatever reason, we always get the WORST table, no matter how early we make the reservation. We were looking for a leisurely, romantic dinner but we ended up at a really tiny table wedged up against the kitchen door..we could not move our chairs and inch either way and needed a shoe horn to get in our chair. As a result, we never got comfortable and hurried to finish so we could stretch our arms and legs. I would suggest taking out a table along that wall and spacing them out anlittle more. Lost income, yes, but at least diners will return. For the cost, I felt a little cheated out of the finer dining experience and could not enjoy the ambiance. The food is amazing though and the service was great too. No complaints there at all. Would recommend but make sure you specify which table you want or dont want.

147 Italian fare is truly delicious. The atmosphere is upscale but not so much that you wouldn’t be comfortable there in casual business dress. The decor is lovely and the service excellent. However the guest of honour is the food. Tasty, authentic and definitely worth a try.

Fantastic as usual!! The atmosphere is terrific - rustic and warm. You are welcomed as soon as you walk in the door and the friendly, attentive service continues throughout your meal. And then there is the food - soooo good!! After this last visit to 147, it is safe to say this continues to be my favourite restaurant hands down!!
