It rained so the patio was unfortunately unavailable. The service was good but the food was a disappointment. Red snapper was rubbery and overcooked. The corn in the peach and corn salad was dry and old. The veggie burger was ok.

We appreciated all the care and effort to make our anniversary dinner special! Even though it was raining and only the patio was open due to covid restrictions we were out of the elements and had a lovely fire table which kept us warm. Thank you so much for the wonderful evening!

I will be back! Beautiful view, wonderful waitress and the pasta was good. The menu was affected by Covid, so not their online menu. Fresh pasta puttanesca that was tasty but a bit pricey at $18.99.

Very pricy. Limited menu due to Covid. Food was okay, large servings but not what you expect for the price. Two shareable appies (sweet potato fries & shrimp gyoza), one salad with 5 shrimp added, one dessert, one alcoholic drink and one non-alcoholic cost over $110 incl. tip for lunch.

But you pay for the view and location.

The patio is absolutely the best view in the City! Food is good for the price and the service is always outstanding. They need to get a couple traps for the wasps and yellow jackets during the fall season.

Our son and daughter in law from Vancouver treated us to lunch at your beautiful patio. We had a lovely table with an unobstructed view of the river valley. Because it was a cool day we asked for the heat to be turned on in the centre of our table. Wonderful!
I ordered the mushroom bruschetta and the watermelon/feta/arugula salad. Both were excellent, as was the special chardonnay at $25.00 per bottle.

Friendly service, fabulous views, although unfortunately limited opening hours (latest dinner reservation is 5:15pm - would be nice if they stayed open for evening service).

Drinks are decent. Food is okay, it's fine, but nothing special. Definitely worth coming anyway to enjoy the view of the river.

Hi, We did not stay. We checked the online menu before going, because we have certain items we like to order. We also checked prices first, just in case. Unfortunately, we got there & the menu had changed & all of the drink prices were $4 more each than it stated online. We asked about the menu & were told that because of COVID the menu changed each day. I find that hard to believe considering we have gone to a few other restaurants in the last couple of months. Some may have run out of items, but did not change their menu each day. Also, why say a drink is $10 & then charge $14 for the same drink once you get there. The positive was that the waiter was very friendly & accommodating when we explained that we were not staying. Also, the view is amazing. We'd go back, but we'd call first to check to see what was on the menu.

Our server was extremely attentive, and as we were seated on the patio he recommended a table that was private and covered in the event of a storm. We experienced an incredible thunderstorm but were able to remain outside and enjoy our meals. We were not rushed, all meals were served to our expectations and our service was excellent. We will highly recommend this restaurant to our friends and families.

We had great yam fries and edamame beans to start. The drinks were fine as well.

The steak sandwich was sent back for overcooking. The second one was great though.

We weren't overly impressed with the wait service. It was average.

The patio is very nice with a full view of the river.
