We spent an evening at "The Bubble at Curious Cafe". What a fabulous experience . The food was good and lots of it !!. Our waitress was attentive. She never made us feel rushed as we did have a 2 1/2 time slot. I do hope they bring "The Bubble" back next year. If they do they only input I can say is you need two heaters in the "Bubble". They did have "Hudson Bay" blankets for each us which was wonderful. Once again food excellent, value was spot on. Will go back this summer and check out the patio in the back.

We loved this experience. Full moon, nice jazz and fire pit outside the bubble, cozy heaters, good red wine and a fine spread of plentiful food inside the bubble. The server was very nice. We were having a first date night in months and we super enjoyed it! Highly recommended.

Service was good, food was not. Eating food in a tent in an alley is not a good experience (noisy neighbours partying in alley) . Swing and a miss.
Set menu was boring “Safeway” charcuterie, tiny salad , small coffee cup of soup and small piece of fishy salmon with four potatoes. Stick to Pizzas and burgers.

Was a bit chilly even though they had two heaters going but weren’t giving off much heat. The food came out really fast so if you didn’t eat it all quickly then it would start to get cold. Food was delicious and the price you pay for how much you get is so worth it! Excellent service as well

I gave ambience a 3 only because it was minus 20! We could’ve used another heater! Otherwise everything was great!

Really nice experience if you want a private dinner. It was a good cost X benefit. The food is not the most amazing, but it is very well served. Staff were really nice.
I loved spending my birthday night in a bubble.

It was so relaxing to finally get out of the house for the first time in months. Despite one of the heaters being broken, we were able to make the most of it. We appreciated all the covid precautions and would likely dine again. Service was a tad slow, but all in all it was a great evening.

Dining in a bubble was a fun, alternative experience! I'd recommend to anyone to do it once. I do however feel the food was fairly average, as I probably could have cooked just the same at home. Appetizers were a great start and probably the best part of the meal. The pizza and caesar salad (appetizers) were probably the one exception, such that it was unique, light, and delicious. The soup preceding and the main course was a bit boring, unfortunately, the Mediterranean chicken a little overcooked and dry but that's not to say the effort was not there. No complaint from the drinks, very tasty. Otherwise, considering the price, I was a bit disappointed with the choices, as I personally might prefer less food but of greater quality. Overall glad I went for the experience, but that was enough for me. I can see the appeal but might consider ordering from the regular menu since the surprise of a 4-course meal did not pay off. Perhaps having a few choices of what main dish you would have would be of greater benefit??

What an amazing treat! I have never seen anything like this. If you can keep it a secret from your dinner party so much the better! We were suprised by our kids and we were led through the different parts of the restaraunt up to the back door!!!!! Then they open it to a courtyard with 2 bubbles. It was lit up inside with 2 heaters and romantic music playing just for us. The table (that could hold 6) was beautifully set for the 2 of us. Outside the bubble in the courtyard was are own private gas fire with chairs to sit around. We utilized this part way though the meal, and took our wine outside with us. The set meal is fantastic, and as the 3rd course was served our VERY attentive private waitress said we could take some home because there were 3 more courses to come!!! If you want to go by the fire, bring a comfy coat or even some blankets. This is a hidden jem, amazing value for your $, and the best chicken I have EVER had in my 67 years.

Amazing job with the food and accommodations to allergies. The bubble was a super fun idea and we will definitely be coming back again. Food was served in perfect portions and the staff was super friendly!
