    The food was well thought out and presented. Everything tasty and beautiful to look at. Service was top quality and relaxed, you felt like you had a real open exchange with a human being. It wasn’t just our server but everyone that we came in contact with was kind, friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely go back.

    Phenomenal dining experience. Everything from the wine pairings, cocktails to the food were expertly prepared and executed. Chef James and his kitchen team are masters of their craft. The front of house team were extremely polished and well versed in every aspect of the food and beverage program. Stellar experience

    We had a nice table at the back of the restaurant. We ordered 4 small plates and really enjoyed 4 of them. The foie gras mousse was not really a mousse and we did not like it. The service was problematic. It was almost impossible to read the wine menu for bottles of wine. The one we asked for was not available. In the end we took what the server suggested and it was good but we felt that we did not have much choice. After the table was cleared, it took at least 15 minutes before our server returned and when we asked for dessert, he told us that we did not have time because our 2 hours was almost up. Given that it was up because we waited for service, this did not seem fair. It left a negative feeling as we were hustled out the door.

    The ambiance was nice. The fois crepe was the most horrible dish I've ever had at a fine dining restaurant and the Banana cake was rubbery despite other components being good. Pastas are the star.

    Loved eating out on the heated patio. The food was fantastic, and it was easy to talk with my companion. The noise level was a lot louder inside the restaurant, so I was glad we were outside. Highly recommended!

    Wanted to try a whole bunch of small plates. Though they were mostly good, some combined too many different flavours. It would be nice if there was a charcuterie board without having to select yourself.
