    We had an amazing dinner! Food was delicious and will come back for sure! Service was amazing. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly. Pleasant experience:-) Only thing is that it was a bit dark in the corner where we were seated (closest to washroom) and had some burning oil smell.

    Nice atmosphere. The menu (cocktails and food) is a bit pretentious. Lots of complex descriptions, and then the food isn’t really anything special. For example, I had a braised beef brisket pappardelle that didn’t have much flavour - reminded me of Hamburger Helper, to be honest! Dessert was a chocolate apple tart that had potential, but it was paired with sunchoke ice cream - this would need to be done carefully to work with the tart… but unfortunately it basically tasted like a sunchoke, which is enjoyable but not as dessert - bitter potato taste made the tart inedible. Small menu with a lot of fish and raw items.

    The staff were very friendly helpful and attentive.The prices were fair. The wine selection was overwhelming, the decor was pleasant. The noise level was too high for conversation and the menu selections didn’t appeal to me so I probably won’t return.

    Delightful repast of shared charcuterie board and a small plate. Everything was superb. Our server was outstanding: personable, accommodating, efficient, knowledgeable. As the restaurant filled up, certainly the noise level was quite high but everyone looked as they were really enjoying themselves.

    Great time as usual, but for the first time I felt value was dissaponting. Me and a friend each ordered the bass for our main course and had to look at the menu as we thought we had ordered an appetizer. The portion could not have been more than 5-ounces, but our guess was 4-ounces. It was delicious but very small. I know inflation is affecting all businesses, but for the prices you already charge, this was very dissapointing.

    We had a lovely evening, celebrating my partner's birthday. Impressed with the beer and wine lists! The deserts were delicious! Unfortunately, they made a mistake with their order and when they came back with the right plates, mine was cold (I had ordered beef).

    We were a large group and they have small space but they did accommodate us well. Typically they don’t do large groups so they put us on a set menu. Selections were good and all but the main steak dish hit the points. Everyone that had it agreed it was very under done. Apps were good, other main was good, dessert was avg. Service was attentive and drinks were good. Overall we were happy with experience other than the 1 steak main option.

    Food was great! Would definitely recommend, just something to note, there’s a 2hr limit that we were unaware of and the waiter only told us at the 2hr mark so it felt like we were being pushed out of the restaurant which was unpleasant, we didn’t even get to try their dessert :/.

    Loved our server, Graham, who was very knowledgeable and attentive. Started with a very tasty and dry apple cider (yum) and amazing plate of olives. My friends tried various cocktails which they all enjoyed very much. Moved on to a truly out-of-this-world delicious cauliflower main dish. It was honestly one of the best meals I have EVER eaten at a restaurant, with stupendous flavours, paired with a lovely white wine chosen by Graham. My friends also really enjoyed their mains (beef, fish and pasta). We had a great time, and I will be back!!

    Food was good. Unfortunately the customer service is not. Our reso was late by 25 minutes, not that I cared, but they got mad at us for waiting around for our table while we ordered drinks and one of us was knocked by a server pretty hard and spilled their drink. No excuse me or apology, and from others we were told it was on purpose. What’s frustrating is this is the second time I’ve experienced this there. Almost the exact same situation. Got the vibe they don’t want us there. It’s too bad, because I think it could be a great spot. Just sharing my experience as I’m sure other people have had a good experience, hopefully.
