This was our first "Date Night" in quite a while, and it was a delicious treat. Although very tempting, we had only main courses. Portions were more than enough to satisfy and the food was excellent. (as was the service) Dining on a Tuesday evening, we were happy to see three other groups while we were there. It's great to have fine dining in St. Albert.

We have had excellent meals at this restaurant previously. This time our food was fine but not exceptional. The mushroom soup and the crème brûlée were very good

Pasta & Chicken dish - should rename the dish to “Carrots and 6 pieces of way overcooked pasta, it was awful, didn’t even eat 1/4 of it, took home for dogs. I’ve had this same dish there before and it was somewhat better but this was awful and cost way too much for what you got !

Fair prices for excellent quality. Taste was fabulous, as was the selection. My only concern was how easy it is to overhear other patrons' conversations. A couple tables were very loud, and tables are quite close together. Servers were attentive and knowledgable. A great place to go in St. Albert.

The ambiance of the meal was great and the food was wonderful, but the service was very, very slow. I ran out of water and had to drink my wife's as no water refills came until between when we first set and at the very end of the meal. Waiting between courses and for the cheque was also very long - there was no flow to the meal and it was a bit frustrating and disruptive to the ambiance. The servers were friendly, just not attentive or quick. Maybe this was a reflection of being understaffed or maybe this was due to delays with meal prep, I don't know. Overall, the experience was very meh - great food, not great service. To be honest, we won't be back.

Went out for a birthday dinner, food was very good, although I ordered something that I was not aware was raw meat for an appetizer, which is not fault of the restaurant, all me.

Food was wonderful, service was good.

I’ll go back.
