Our dinner was very good. I ordered the steak frites and it was good, but it wasn't anything spectacular. It would have been nice to have had a little dish of chimichuri on the side or a spicy aioli to compliment the steak. Our service was great. My husband ordered the Tomahawk steak and there was enough for 2 or 3 people which we would have shared if we had been told there was going to be so much food. All in all everyone had a great time and enjoyed their meals.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch— burger and chicken sandwich were delicious, good service, great setting and ambiance. We will return for dinner to try one of the specials and/or steak entrees. Enjoyed visiting downstairs market after lunch to purchase a couple of Mt Boucherie wines!

Forgot the gentleman’s name who served us (he had a shaved head) but he was impeccable. The type of service I look for when I go out. Attentive without being overbearing, bubbly and humorous. Food was 10/10, we got the Tuesday special of a 32oz Tomahawk with all the fixing to share with a bottle of the Merlot for only 135$ and added a lobster tail for good measure. Brownie Sundae to finish up and we were stuffed. An awesome date night overall and will be back for sure. Would recommend!

I had the tenderloin and it was absolutely spectacular. My friend ordered the brisket but our server gave her the feature in error which was not very good. The service was poor as our server was a bit too chatty. Sweet girl, just not great service. Sorry. I believe in bad nights so I would still give it a second chance and would recommend it to friends - just order the steak. :)

We ordered their $125 signature tomahawk steak medium rare which came well done. Offered us a one once glass of ice wine each and charged us for the whole thing. We ate it anyways since we didn’t want to wait another hour for a new steak to be cooked. $350 for a very average meal.

Disappointing. The charcuterie board is a definite miss. For $24 there are about 20 very thinly sliced pieces of a small variety of salami and a board filled with pickles. They do provide a good portion of flat bread sticks and crostinis though. The pork belly was very good as was the feta appetizer. The salad was excellent. Most disappointing is you get a 5 oz. pour of their Summit wine for $18 - actually any of their wines by the glass are over-priced.

During these COVID times, the restaurant was all full which is good for them, but the tables do not have 6 feet between them. The table next to us had someone sitting behind me at a maximum of 3 feet and they do not have plexi-glass anywhere.

My wife ordered the porcini pasta which was incredibly bad. The pasta was stale, uncooked and cold. In fairness, the server removed the dish, apologized and offered to correct the problem. It was too late.

Two of us shared the braised beef poutine which was quite good. Each of us had the crispy chicken sandwich and duck fat fries which were very good. I guess it doesn’t pay to eat well!

Our server was friendly and professional. There are too many hard surfaces, so the noise level was high even though the number of diners was low.

The service was first rate. Our server went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our anniversary night out. We enjoyed happy hour and moved right into appetizers and wine for our dinner. All food was delicious. We hope that there will be some more vegan options in the future as we really want to come back often.

This is actually two reviews. The first was I had a reservation confirmed for an important occasion. Upon arrival we we placed in the pub area with a football game on. We could have gone to a local sports bar. We waited at least one hour for our table and reservation to be honored but it was very clear the intention was to leave us in the pub, which was discouraging

When finally moved (after other finished with our proper table), the meal was above average and service average. It really didnt matter as we couldnt enjoy the evening while waiting. I spoke with others at the restaurant and they advised they made a reservation that day. Not right

All said, I may give them a second visit as Ive heard good things. This wasnt one of those occasions, especially since I verified my reservation that day

We’ve been twice and both times it was amazing. Delicious, unique food items on the menu and a really good selection of wine.

The atmosphere is a mix between casual and formal and the decor is outstanding. Service has been great both times as well, with helpful knowledgeable servers. Definitely a new favorite!

We very much enjoyed our selection of appetizers (pint of bacon, duck fat potato wedges, warm olives, pork belly and cauliflower fritters) and were also impressed by the extensive and elaborate cocktail menu.
Boucherie wines are of course fabulous as well. We are already planing to return for happy hour and eventually dinner!
