The restaurant feels very cozy and makes you feel comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the chef came to the table to ask how everything was. Our group all had the Prix Fixe menu and we were all amazed how good the food was. The trout with potato croquette was excellent. They also have a great a la Carte menu. We will definitely return.

The first time I went I had a great time but the second time was different. The waiter forgot our appetizer which wasn’t a big deal but the food wasn’t that good. My risotto was cold and the crepe that I got for dessert was dry, it tasted like it was thawed from being frozen. The overall ambience is really nice though and drinks are very good.

Service was somewhat amateurish. Nice fella but needs training as he was not attentive to the table regards to wine pouring, checking on us now and again etc...We also had to wait for quite a while to get our food between courses. I like to have some time between courses but not an hour. One guest ordered a fillet Mignon and it was the 6 oz but looked like 3oz yet I ordered the same and it was very good and the proper size. All in all an average dining experience. Need to train the waiter we had and that would help and then ensure food served is consistent. Last but not least was that this diner was for 4 people and when they served the first two entree’s the their two guests waited at least ten minutes for their entree to come out. Not good. All meals should come out together and no ten minutes waiting before everyone got their entree.

Food was great. Scallop potatoes could have more flavor and cheese. Could have been cooked a little longer found them a bit hard. Otherwise everything else was amazing. Onion soup had tons of onions and out of this world. Steak was cooked exactly as asked and tender. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

In Windsor it is hard to find a restaurant that is consistently good.
I have never had a bad meal or drink here. The wide selection of martinis are wonderful. The regular menu has something for everyone and the fixed menu is great. Service is always quick and staff are friendly and accommodating. Nice place for a group or special romantic dinner with a loved one.
My compliments to the chef and staff for your continued quality of service.

My only disappointment was that we went on Tuesday to enjoy the specials and unfortunately you were out of the items we went for example the mussels. What we had was delicious but not are favorites at home we eat what we have. Dining out you go for what you want

It was our first time there. The staff was friendly and courteous. They were very attentive to our needs. The food was wonderful, my husband ordered the Beef Tips it melted in your mouth they were that tender. I had the Mediterranean Chicken and enjoyed it very much. We will definitely go again.

My pork schnitzel was overcooked to the point of being hard to even cut it. The risotto was bland with only one small mushroom. I advised the waiter of this &, even though it was my birthday celebration , he did not reduce the bill at all. It was obvious that I had eaten only a third of it . My friend's steak was very thin & fatty. The manager & waiter were both very friendly but the lack of any proper response to providing a bad meal was disappointing.

Our experience was fantastic. The service was above and beyond our expectations. Our waiter actually made a sugar-free fruit sauce for the hypoglycemic person at our table. He was so friendly and made our dinner flow with ease and comfort. Ambiance was lovely and romantic. We had the three-course meal menu and it was more than enough food (we brought half home). High recommendation from us.

I had the surf and turf. I was excited about the 28 day marinade. I ordered a t-bone. I don’t think it was... or it was taken off the bone and tenderized. It was really flat. I think this is a one off because when I’ve eaten here before this wasn’t the case. The portions are very large and they also have three nights a week where you get an appetizer, dinner and dessert for $25. That is a great value! Like I said a lot of food for that price.

Great service, atmosphere and food, but it comes at a price. Probably the best food I’ve had in Windsor, but that’s not saying much because there aren’t too many good restaurants in Windsor.

Food and service were both fantastic. Wine recommendation was also great.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Noise from other guests made it very difficult to carry on conversations at our table.
Noise barriers of some nature would help, when your trying to maximize your floor space to the maximum

Both my wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal. Probably the best steak I have ever had. Prices were rather high overall and because of this I would not visit often. We we unhappy with our initial seating. We were there when they first opened an put us in a small nook next to a single and distracting diner. One he left, the ambiance was nice and the experience was excellent. The waiter made nice drink recommendations which was appreciated.

We have visited at least 4 times before so that speaks in itself that we chose to return. We love the price fix menu as each time we have enjoyed it thoroughly and it is very affordable and reasonable. We have introduced you to our friends also. We are from out of town ( Sarnia) . Erie St has so many wonderful options and we have tried them , however you and Bacchus are our ‘go to’ . We did appreciate the draught free room!! It was a little noisy so if I had my parents with me we would have to sign language but I have to do that when we have a party of 4 in a quiet room!!! :) Hope to see you again soon.

We went there on a Tuesday night. The place was half full (ideal for me) with just enough background noise. Wait staff were attentive but not overbearing. We both had the Price fix meals (rainbow trout and black and blue chicken), which were perfectly made and nice portions. The included deserts we delicious. An absolutely wonderful dinner.
