I came for a Cape Breton Ceili night and the place was packed. The ambiance was great, the cheese selection was great, the wine was great - definitely will return!

It was a lovely night out with friends. We especially enjoyed the wine flights with cheese pairings.

Excellente soirée. Ambiance sympa avec une super playlist. Découverte d’un vin autrichien, une belle expérience à renouveler.

Great, as always. Sat 8n the window and enjoyed great wine and conversation. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I am definitely a wine novice but this place never intimidates me and I've discovered so many great wines as a result. I can 9nky comment on the cheese boards but they never disappoint.

We had a great time and the board of food was awesome! It was very warm inside, and we might have stayed for a third glass, but we started to overheat.

Cheers, we'll be back.

Your portions are ridiculously small for the price and market, but delicious. Only complaint. The sparkling rose was excellent.

Great light dinner at Obladee. Opted for the Cacio e Pepe gnocchi, which was to die for. Paired with a local wine flight, the server was very knowledgable about the accompanying wines.

Amazing wine selection and delicious food choices to accompany them. Wonderful to be able to have such a wide selection of very good wines available by the glass and not just the bottle. Super service from very knowledgeable staff.

Didn't eat there. Wine great, service awesome. So empty at 6 on a Friday, hope that's uncommon.

Thanks, Cindy! Thrilled that you liked the wine and service. Yes, Weekends in the Summertime can be a bit slower than usual (similarly, Summer Mondays are often busier than usual... go figure!) Thanks for coming in and filling us up a little!

The ambience is lovely and selection of wines is very good. However, the charcuterie board that we ordered was very disappointing- meagre portion, especially considering the pricetag. I mentioned to the waitress that I did not care for one of the cheeses - nothing was done about it. A nice spot, but disappointing overall!

Birthday dinner. It was a great place. Decor is nice and ambience was wonderful. The food is great. My complaint is the food is very expensive for what you get. Very disappointed in that.

I took my mom here for her 61st birthday when the live jazz band was playing. I had a table reserved and it was waiting for us upon arrival. We ordered wine and a couple checuterie boards which vero helped us with pairing with the wine. We had a wonderful waitress, vero, which I previously known from the wine yoga classes. She provided exceptional service and made sure we had a great experience! Thanks so much, my mom and I had the best time and we will be back!
