Great food, great vibe. We had gone 3 years prior and were not impressed. They definitely changed things around and got better. The Fixed price weekday menu is a lot of food for a great value

Very good food and service was great. Noise level was a bit high but was reduced when a couple of large tables left.

We arrived at 7 but by the time our entree arrived, it was 8:45. Way too long.Waiter apologized and told us it was due to a big party. Not my fault. French onion soup was delicious. Ordered a New York strip for my entree but found it very thin , although it was tasty. Too expensive for what I got

I personally would ask for a table in the back room as my husband & I could not even talk to each other as we couldn’t hear each other. The noise level was not a good experience. I ordered the tortellini & they ran out of tortellini & offered me linguini or fettuccini. Tasted good but just wasn’t the same. Other than than these 2 issues - great service & glad we went.
Everyone else was having a great time!

We cancelled our reservation at a higher-end casino steakhouse, by strong suggestion of a fellow traveller I met in our hotel bar, and it was SUCH the right decsion. The service was impeccable, and food and drinks were PERFECT. If you're in Windsor and looking for a romantic-ish atmosphere, great service and an incredible menu (PERFECT STEAK!) you have to go here!

Paid over $200 (included $55 for a bottle of wine) for our meal which we don't mind if the food is stellar. Crab cakes not good, clearly frozen and lots of filler, strip loin looked beaten up and plopped on plate (way too much blue cheese); veal same thing, looked haggard and not good presentation on plate. Both were so-so only. Even veggies looked like they came from a frozen veggie bag. There was so much hype around this restaurant, but it was a very sub par meal to us. Server was friendly and professional, but did mess up the order (no added mushrooms as ordered, rec'd rice rather than mashed potatoes...). We just didn't bother at that point. He also noted prior to us ordering how the food was local, intimating it was fresh, but when we asked about certain items we were told they were frozen (i.e. duck breast). Definitely way over priced for the meal we received. Also, though we recognize this is not of your doing, but there was a screaming child seated near us which, when you are out in the evening at what is supposed to be an upscale venue for a romantic dinner, that was most definitely off-setting. Sorry to be so blunt, but want to be truthful. Will not return or recommend.

Met some work friends for a nice catch up supper and the food and service were excellent t! The place filled up very quickly and before too long had a bit of trouble hearing over the commotion but that just shows how good this place is. The price-fixe menu is a bargain and the selection is awesome!!! Our server -Adrian- was perfect in every way. Excellent choice for a night out without breaking the bank.

Greeted immediately and seated promptly by Tanya who was very courteous and friendly. Adrean took very good care of us. Calamari appetizer was the best. Our main courses were done to perfection. Chef came out to see how everything tasted. Very nice experience.

The wait for the food after ordering was very long even though others around us were getting their food with a much shorter wait. Not sure what the problem was as we have never had this sort of wait before. Then they rushed my steak and it was rare not medium as I ordered.

Our third time there for our usual date night. An absolutely amazing experience every single time. Great food, great service and I love that the chef comes out and checks on us every time. Those kind of things leave a lasting impression and keep us going back.
