    We had 4 different types of burgers and each thought they were great. Fairly priced. Whiskey was decent. Coctails good. Nice ambience and a good spot to visit (especially when construction outside is done).

    I had work colleagues in town and booked a reservation for 8. I had asked in advance to be seated in a quieter corner but it didn't seem like they accommodated this request (the restaurant wasn't filled to capacity and I saw another party was put in a quieter corner, so it would have been possible). Our server was friendly enough in the beginning but I had a specifically asked if the chicken katsu sandwich had mayo and she said no. I explained that I cannot have mayonnaise or any other creamy sauces and she assured me that it had none. When I took my first bite, it clearly had mayonnaise on it. Unfortunately no one came to check up on us for a very long time so I couldn't do much about it without making a big fuss in front of my guests. When she finally came back to remove our dishes, she noticed that I had not eaten my sandwich and asked if I'd like it boxed. I explained that I didn't eat it because of the mayo, and that that's why I had asked about if it had it when I ordered. She breezily said, "oh!" and simply took the dish away. If you don't have any special requests or dietary restrictions, I think it's probably okay as a place to meet friends for happy hour. Everyone in my group seemed to enjoy their food well enough. The ambience is nice. But I was completely underwhelmed by the service and attitude about my own order.

    Food was pretty decent and not insanely expensive. I really liked the vibe of the restaurant and the waitress we had was attentive but not overbearing. Was very loud when we came in but it was happy hour so it quieted down a bit when that ended. Really great cocktail list. The karage chicken sandwich was AMAZING. Would defs go back.

    It was New Year’s Eve. I had their 3 course set. I chose the prosciutto and burrata appetizer. It was quite good. The entree is chose the Duck with risotto. The duck was under cooked and tough and the risotto was too salty. For dessert I had the chocolate mousse. It was very good. There was a 2 piece band playing at 7pm and it was a little loud for dinner conversation. When the bill came there was a 20% gratuity already added to the bill.

    Really great spot! The Happy Hour drinks are such a good value for strong, classic cocktails and the food was really good. The only thing that was kind of disappointing was that I feel like we were given one of the if not the worst tables location wise despite having a reservation. We were completely tucked away in the corner at the last high top so didn’t get to experience any of the ambiance etc unless we were walking to the washroom because we were either stairing at the door or brick wall. Will definitely be back, but hopefully at a better table next time.

    I had a reservation for 10 persons, and I wanted to add 2 seats, I contacted the restaurant several times, trying to call, trying to send messages on open table, but I didn’t get an answer until 2 hours before my reservation (which was stressful for me and my invitees). When they replied asking about the space, I didn't get a clear or quick answer. I'd expect a large group to have a more meticulous service. We felt a passive-aggressive tone from one of the hosts, and we didn't have enough checking rounds from the waitress handling our table. We kept waiting to request things, and no one came. All my invitees had comments on the service. I will be for sure careful recommending this place to anyone else.

    Food was very good. Probably the best in the free house chain. It was fairly quiet so maybe happy hour should start at 2pm vs 3pm which could draw more people in sooner on a quieter day.

    A warning that you are getting chunks of potato instead of true fries with fish n chips would have been nice. Fish was a bit chewy on the ends so didn’t seem fresh or overcooked. No need for mustard but coleslaw is an expected classic that was missing.

    Will never go back, while nice ambience the food not up to par and tasteless. Ordered per peri chicken and katsu burger. Had way better peri peri at Nandos. Was served a tiny piece with stick fries with peri peri sauce just coated over it , absolutely no taste. Katsu burger was hard and over cooked chicken which was chewy and also tasteless. They don’t know how to make a good old fashion. Will never go back , paid $95.00 for garbage food.
