                                                                I was disappointed that for a reservation that was made a few weeks in advance that we were seated on the bar side. Both my date and I ordered the bone marrow which was a bit tasteless and the parsley salad was more of a garnish. The tartare was good but the server assumed I wanted the meal option without asking. My date enjoyed his burger. All in all, I’ve definitely had better experiences here.

                                                                Hello Anonymous, thank you for taking the time for letting us know about your experience with us on April 13th. We have two special salads available at the moment, in addition to the one on the menu. We cook roughly 40kg of short rib a week, I can assure you it was fresh. I'm sure you're aware of the very challenging times our industry is going through, along with massive staff shortages. If you would like to discus this further please contact the restaurant directly. I'd be delighted to chat

Maybe some nuts and different jams.. it was served on a white dish.. doesn’t have the « wow » effect a wood plank have in many other restaurants. It says craft cocktails but the cocktails menu was not « crafty » at all. Overall i was deceive and i don’t think the description of the restaurant is fair for what the menu have.

The kitchen was on the slow side but with staff shortages everywhere it can be expected - we got our appetizers but it was over an hour until we got our meals. My son and I had the short rib and it was delicious, other dishes were average/good. The charcuterie plater was more about pickles and condiments with smaller portions of cheese and even smaller portions of average salami (this added to only giving 3 stars on food). It’s not a foodie destination but it’s a good food destination.

The dulce de lèche and whipped cream it came with were tasty, but did my add the necessary moisture. Would love to visit again and to try more of their menu.

I still ate my pasta it was tasty nonetheless. Fantastic scotch egg.

                                                                Ordered the charcuterie platter, and had to ask for softer bread. I just got braces a few days earlier and couldn't handle the crustini that is normally served with the platter. Overall it was a delicious platter and the waiter promptly helped with softer breads.

Tasty food that's a lil over priced (fault of location, I think). 100% would go back for date night or another night with the girls. Loved the ambience. Overall 4/5 stars.

However we were very disappointed with the fish and chips - they had replaced the thick cut fries with thinner limp ones and the fish also was not crispy or tasty. We will give them another try as we like the service and ambience.
