We have been here several times and love the menu. Have tried many amazing dishes including risotto, ravioli, broccoli and cauliflower appetizers to name a few. This place never disappoints. Staff are great and knowledgeable, always busy. Would definitely recommend 5 stars.

Great inventive menu and excellent food. Good service. They were very late with one of the appetizers in our foursome so they comped it. Only strange thing was that the reservation we made two weeks prior landed us with a high top table right by the entrance. That would not have been our first choice.

Tasty food especially the appetizers. Very quiet since a Tuesday and servers very attentive but food came out very quickly in between courses and would have liked a little break in between the starter and main course. But overall a good experience and would go back as menu has very interesting items that are different.

I met friends there around 6. When we walked in we noticed that it was quite cold. I asked the greeter and he mentioned that the heat was acting up. We sat with our coats on through dinner.

I have been to this restaurant many times before. Food is great and so is the service. I went with a friend who had never been before. They were having heat issues. The restaurant should have been closed. It was freezing. People were leaving and others wearing their coats while they ate their dinners. Something should have been done for the people who stuck it out. No manager came around to apologize for the issue, no free appetizer or round of drinks. Not even a coupon for a free appetizer to bring us back another time. When you pay to go out for a nice dinner, you want great food, service and atmosphere. Unfortunately that didn’t happen this time. I’m pretty sure my friend will never go back. I hope this is forwarded to the restaurant. Thanks.

We ordered the muscles as an appetizer and they were so delicious! We had the Tomahawk steak -4 people! It was absolutely amazing and reasonably priced. Three sides came with it. I will definitely be back to try something different.

Loved this cute place...the service provided by Dale was excellent (although she forgot to ask what drinks we wanted to have!!!).
Loved that we could watch the chefs working through the open kitchen and was amazed at how calmly they were executing the orders.
We were seated at the long table with raised seats-appeared to be a table for 12 at least- thank god that there was just one more couple at the other end of the table or we would be hitting each other's elbows and listening to everyone's conversations!! ( since we were the only two at the table at the beginning, we did not mind. My husband requested for one of the smaller tables for two. We were told that they were reserved, but we did not see anyone occupy one of the tables for two even by the time we left, which was more than an hour and a half later. By the time we left, which was about 7:50pm or so, half the restaurant was vacant. So wonder why they could not give us the table for two!!).
We did not let that deter our enjoyment because the food - right from the starters to the desserts - was truly amazing !!! We started off with the Crostone - which we both shared, followed by Ontario Lamb (hubby) and the Chicken (me). Both the dishes were awesome and so flavorful!!. We ended with Lemon Tart Brulee and Chocolate-Baily Creeme Brulle, both of which were excellent!!
We let Dale know that the food was awesome and she recommended the Brunch. Got to try that sometime.

All in all loved the place and our compliments to the two young Chefs and a third lady sous chef!!!

Would give this restaurant 4.8 !!!!
