The food was great and I am vegan so the chef/kitchen accommodated by making dishes specifically for me and they made the garlic bread with no cheese on one side. Very thoughtful & food was fab!! The two women who seated & served us were fabulous. One having to text correct directions onto friends phone when I was lost. Then giving me tasting of wine. Just really friendly & helpful!!

The food lacked a certain vibrance that fresh food is supposed to have. It didn't wow me. The staff were amazing and made up for it though.

Julie awesome waitress. Remembered us from last time. We really enjoy the entertainment. Service was timed just right. We really enjoy it here. We bring friends often who are visiting and they rave about it and want to return when back in town. We have referred many people. It is a hidden gem in my neighbourhood

Disappointing. Food was drenched in oil. Lobster quesadilla was dripping oil and it got all over my shirt. The Carne Assada was saturated in oil. It was gross and inedible. We returned it. We were seated by the window and it was freezing. Service was good. Music is loud and makes it difficult to talk. Music was also a little depressing. Something more upbeat would be great. Saw the great reviews for this place and we’re excited to check it out but it was one of the worst restaurant experiences we’ve had in a long time.

Fantastic food and drink list. Went with My wife and another couple had a great time. Live music was wonderful not to loud and was a joy to listen to. We had fantastic service and outstanding menu that matched the wine list perfectly.
We will be back.

We were able to have a nice relaxed dinner with unobtrusive music (voice and piano) which just suited our needs that day (not a special occasion). We found the menu imaginative, and a little out of the ordinary- - It made a nice change. The food was very tasty, served hot when it should be hot ( as opposed to luke-warm). The drinks were very acceptable. WE hope to come again when we have a "special occasion"

The service was great. The server wery friendly. There were four of us . One was very pleased with his meal the other 3 not so much. We found it to be over priced for what you get. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dish.

We went there for New Years.
Very disappointed.
We went there for live music. Unless you are sitting right next to the performer you won’t see or hear anything. And the floor plan of the restaurant has lots of booths and corners so really there ar not too many good spots that you can actually hear the music.
Also we had to chase after our waitress all evening. We finally asked her for a dessert menu, then she disappeared, by the time she came back to take our order she said the kitchen was closed. Why did she not come by to take our order sooner or notify us that the kitchen would close soon , on New Years, beats me.

Excellent food and service in an upscale establishment tucked away in an unassuming location. Worth the trip to North Burlington, if you aren't local. Prices are surprisingly reasonable and every dish we ordered was amazing. This night was the first time we didn't order the tasting menu, because it wasn't available (NYE), but all was wonderful. Will definitely visit again soon.

Very pleasant atmosphere,upscale with live music every night. We were right beside the singer and the noise level was perfect, she had a lovely voice. The food was delicious, shrimp bisque and stuffed chicken breast. Prices are reasonable for fine dining. Really enjoyed it!
