    Went for a date night with my wife, and the vibe was perfect. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious, great selection of wine and cocktails. Felt like we were in another place like NY or LA. We'll be back.

    Good wine list. Mushroom soup undoubtedly the BEST I’ve ever tasted- thought I just might be in Europe! Seafood Gorgonzola , once tasted, makes choosing another entree very difficult!! Definitely the favourite of our group! Superb wait staff. On the higher end price wise, but a true dining experience- don’t rush your visit!

    Marty and Shelby are the best hosts in town. The food is delicious and prepared with care. They are friendly and welcoming, attentively going above and beyond to exceed all your exquisite dinner expectations. The decor is gorgeous creating a warm and inviting ambience. Later into the night the noise level increases, because the guests are having so much fun and there is non-stop conversation and laughter. The addition of live music tops the evening off!

    We’ve been a number of times. Everything was excellent as usual. Enjoyed the music that was playing when we arrived but did not enjoy the musician once he arrived and started playing. Personal preference. Every song sounded the same.

    Place is clean. Food is beyond excellent. Service is friendly and informative. Been there a few times bow and it's just a little too noisy earlier on when the dinner crowd is there. Had to lean in and talk loud to my dinner mate which is counterintuitive considering the high quality dining experience that the food and presentation suggests. Slowly ramping up your sound levels as the bar crowd starts rolling in for drinks a little later on would be a good thought.

    The veal Parmesan was cold, served with spaghetti noodle in lieu of, advertised linguine. The sauce came from a jar and lacked flavour. The veal was very thick and overdone. The live music was loud enough that a conversation with my dining partner was not possible.

    The food is really good and consistent, however, the prices have gotten a bit out of hand. For a pasta dish to now be $32 it seems overpriced. We were also shocked at the price of coffee. We ordered 2 black coffees at the end of our meal and they were $5 each. I’ll still go but I was disappointed at the cost.
