    Service was impeccable and the meal was delicious! Drinks were also amazing! Music was a little loud starting out but as the tables began to fill and people were speaking the noise balanced out to a much more comfortable level. We will definitely be beach!!!

    Their food and cocktail menu is reduced from what you see posted online. Staff didn’t highlight what items were sold out or their daily specials until asked. Beef Tenderloin had gristle. Moose Bolognese was very tasty. Music way too loud for dinner. Waited 45minutes for entree.

    Had a great meal, although on first take, the menu seemed unspectacular. Specials for the day included a halibut ceviche which we ordered and was exceptional. Terrific flavors with jalapeño slices and tomatoes with tortilla chips. Also enjoyed the heirloom tomato salad...perfectly fresh lettuce etc...melted in my mouth. The seared ahi tuna baguette was also very good, though the baguette was extremely hard, and as such we ate only the innerds. Slightly disappointing but nothing to complain about. Service provided by Shauna (not sure of spelling) was courteous and enjoyable. We will return once the vaccine passports are obsolete!

    The server was inexperienced but nice. The menu was very limited with very little difference in the options….seafood and moose pasta?! Menu online was completely different from the one given in the restaurant. All the good things had been removed for some Reason? Charcuterie and cheese boards were served with no bread and we asked if we could order some to accompany it but we’re told no. I’ve eaten here numerous times before and it’s been beyond amazing but now I don’t think I’d go back.

    I find Loose Tie a surprising place. It's often uncrowded during the week. The small plates are terrific and not so small either. Two of them makes a good meal. My only complaint is they're a captive of Molsen's-sad not to be able to get good beer with do many local breweries around.

    Very good small plates with quite generous portions. We started by sharing a whipped Ricotta sourdough with Shisoto peppers, spicy honey and preserved lemon with plenty for both of us. Then she had mussels with Lap Cheong sausage, finger and pickled onion while I had roasted local mushrooms. We finished with a small main of Moose Pappardelle (also available as a large) each. We had plenty of food and it was all delicious!

    We had all of the small plates. The ambiance was nice, service really good, and the food hinted at spectacular, but was all just very good. A little work and it could be among the best in the city. The mixed drinks were delicious! Some of the portions were almost too much. The giant mussels could have served 4, easily...as could the frites. The Sichuan wings weren’t as spicy as the warning, or the frites. Haha! At the end, we were very satisfied.

    Very nice in dining experience. Food was excellent and a very nice complement to each food and unique combination. The only shortfall would be the music was just a little too loud to provide a nice evening ambience and of course if there is band playing downstairs that will directly impact this as well. Overall, very nice

    All the dishes for our small group were timely and well prepared. The sauce for my duck was new and interesting, and the breast was tender and medium rare. It was great to have moose in the pappardelle dish. It doesn’t look like this restaurant has caught on based on open tables a day in advance. But all available tables were used on their main floor on a Friday night. Would definitely recommend.

    We waited almost an hour and a half for our meal even the appetizer. Our server said it was her fault for putting in the orders all together and offered us a free drink but we had had several up to that point . we almost left without eating . The food was very good when it arrived.

    Food tasted great. Beverages was unique and tasted great. The server was friendly and had a great understanding of the menu. The only down fall is the food service was extremely slow. It took almost 55mins to get a small plate which was requested as an appetizer.
