This restaurant is one of the top three in the city. Why, hmmmm, first the food is REALLY good and has been since it opened about six years ago. The dishes change but the quality and good taste never change. This visit I had the steak special, the New York steak was so tender and perfectly cooked it just melted in your mouth with a great taste. It was accompanied by garlic mashed potatoes, grilled Brussels sprouts, other grilled vegetables and a delicious sauce. The scallops to start are always just great, tender and delicious with a homemade bacon jam. My husband had the Caesar salad and steak frites, one of the dishes that I think has been there since the opening and is still a big hit bedside it’s soooo good. Service here is impeccable, professional and attentive, servers figure out your dining pace and serve you when you are ready for the next item. They also know the menu well and can help you substitute. One of our friends noted that he couldn’t eat butter and do without asking the waiter brought olive oil for his bread and had his vegetables cooked in oil instead. The decor is calming, chairs and benches are comfortable. The wine list is interesting with unusual choices; we ha an excellent Syrah from the Similkameen Valley in BC. So food! Decor! Service! Wine! You should go. I suggest reservations on popular nights. Lunch is just as good, btw! Let Matt Day and his great team welcome you to this Kingston gem !

As always, our experience was amazing! I highly recommend the butternut squash soup - it’s to die for! Possibly the best steak & frites in Kingston! And, the wine list is always extensive and well thought out! We’re always happy (and very full) after our visits!

It is always a pleasure to visit your restaurant. In the past you have served us well and promptly as a large group for pre-theatre dinners and with outstanding service. The menu is inovative and portions just right. Usually, it is quite easy to carry on a conversation, without music or other background noises. Long may you prosper!

Definitely one of the best restaurants in Kingston.
Small menu, as well as a daily special appeals to our taste.
My husband loves the short ribs and unless they take it off the menu may never try anything else.
I had the scallops to start, then the tuna. Both excellent.
Shared a nice Zinfandel and yummy chocolate cake for dessert.
Looking forward to a return visit next year.

We went to celebrate a 50th Birthday. I brought my 2 month old and had his seat under the table. The manager came over and not only brought a seat for the car seat to sit on, he helped me pick up the seat and ensure it was placed safely. Our waitress and the manager were both very attentive. We never once had to look for someone to ask for something. We ordered appetizers which we shared, scallops and crab cakes were top picks. Our table had pastaX2, steak fritesx2, pork tenderloin and short rib. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. There were a couple groups in for Christmas parties around us, the vibe was really pleasant/happy. When they brought out the cake the whole restaurant sung Happy Birthday.

Overall, amazing food, really great atmosphere and a really good place to celebrate something special or even just have a date.

Well worth the visit for a birthday celebration for my wife. Food was excellent, my wife had the duck and I had the steak and both were delicious. The service was very good indeed and the table we were shown to was in a quiet corner which was perfect for an intimate dinner. We will definitely dine there again!

Good food and a pleasant interor space. Service was pretty good except for the waiter didn't acknowledge that we were there to celebrate a birthday as I noted on the reservation, plus she forgot to bring our bill and left us sitting for a while, neither were a big deal. I always tip 15 percent on the pre-tax amount but by the look on our waiters face this was unacceptable. She saw it and just turned and walked away, didn't thank us or wish us a good evening. Good food for sure.

Have been here many times for dinner but this was my first visit for lunch. End of season lunch with my key employee who is new to Kingston and wanted to introduce her to a new location. She loved it...mentioned she will make a point of visiting with her husband for dinner in the near future.

Food is always excellent, service is great. Located 10-15 minutes from downtown in a small west-end strip mall. By habit, I made a reservation for noon (it was mid-week) and it's a good thing as the main dining area was full...which tells you everything you need to know.

Great visit as always.
