    It was our first time, I was looking at a cozy place on line and found the reviews was, And I was 40 mins early but tell you parking was a bit of a challenge. Coming from a cooing background Thought the food was great as stated on the menu We order the Shrimp 🍤 Gambini Thought that a bit salty and pricey could used a lemon 🍋 on it And lastly the tagine which is a Cornish chicken was dry,seems like it was boiled upon opening it and some of the veggies in the dish are hot are some are cold, for the price of $32 and portion I think is way too overpriced when I pass by the washroom look and saw the chicken it look like the food was premade not sure how they cook it but I see lots of torching, Also the server/bartender serves as a server as well Otherwise they are nice servers, I’m saying this bcuz I want them to improve there restaurant, the dish could be made fresh to order not pre heat definitely not going back

    Honestly, the non-fried food tasted great! However, the fried food were not fried on site fresh which makes them taste burnt limp crust with lukewarm dried out center. The table next to us was stating similar issue to the server which means it’s unlikely the first time they are hearing this. The Gaia cocktail listed with freezes dried iberico ham garnished didn’t come with it. I had to flag down the bartender and she explained they ran out and walked away. I wasn’t advised of this prior or when the drink was served. After noticing my disappointment, they served a slice of fresh iberico lomo as substitute. The service felt poor from the cocktail experience as well as they knowing serve poorly executed food.

    My recent visit to Pax Romana left much to be desired. The lack of attentive service was glaring, as the lone bartender/server seemed preoccupied with only one guest throughout our meal, despite the restaurant being nearly empty with only two occupied tables. Turning to the cuisine, the beef tartare suffered from an overwhelming presence of sherry vinegar, obscuring the delicate flavour of the beef itself. Similarly, the tuna dish, purportedly "dry-aged," consisted of mere tuna pieces adorned with basic seasoning, olive oil, and haphazardly scattered micro greens, failing to impress with its simplicity. Despite the shortcomings in the food department, Pax Romana's redeeming feature lies in its innovative and expertly crafted cocktails. Each libation presented a delightful fusion of flavors and a touch of elegance that elevated the overall dining experience.From the first sip, it was evident that the mixologists at Pax Romana had a keen eye for detail and a passion for creativity. Whether it was a classic cocktail with a unique twist or an entirely original creation, each drink showcased a thoughtful combination of ingredients, expertly balanced to tantalize the taste buds.Furthermore, the presentation of the cocktails was impeccable, adding an element of visual appeal that heightened the anticipation of each sip. From intricate garnishes to elegant glassware, every aspect of the cocktail presentation reflected a commitment to excellence and innovation. Unfortunately for an establishment boasting five-star reviews across the board, I expected more in terms of culinary execution. However, I must commend the bar for its delightful and elegantly crafted drinks, showcasing creativity and attention to detail that unfortunately did not extend to the food offerings.

    Great food. Excellent service. Loved it! Our new favourite place! The anchovy toast was amazing. Chicken terrine was fabulous. Chocolate dessert with cherries was out of this world!

    Great spot for tapas style dining. Our server was so accommodating with our allergen needs. Tried many items on the menu - would come back for the chicken parfait, the lamb tagine and the patatas bravas.

    Terrific service. Wonderful variety of food for their Valentine's Day set menu. Their beef heart tartare and chocolate cherry cheesecake were incredible. The wine and cherry pairing set was an incredible deal. Would come back again!
