My husband and I were very impressed by the thoughtfulness of each dish as well as the cohesiveness of the whole meal. It was very special indeed. I liked each dish being brought to the table with an explanation and it was delivered by young cooks who were clearly proud of their offering.
I was less impressed with our server who I think could have been more facilitating. He failed to introduce himself but simply launched into what the plan was for the evening. I made him stop and introduce himself. That was a bit odd. Also he didn’t seem that interested in how we found each course. He was a bit perfunctory in his delivery of our wine and next course. He warmed up by the end, but I feel the night would have been more memorable had he been excited “with us” for what was unfolding.
The meal however was magical and the dessert almost brought a tear to my eye....seriously.
Very talented group.
Thank you.

The restaurant is definitely different from other restaurants we've been to.
However it not a place I would recommend to a lot of people.
You need to be able to eat and hopefully enjoy what the restaurant had prepared this day.
That is not necessary for everyone. Also there was no main dish that you can get a bit more of.

Went with my husband and we walked away thinking the chefs’ effort for creativity and ingenuity for new flavour pairings took away from the food. It was hard to pick a dish that we loved the most, because they were all a bit underwhelming.
Also disappointed with the price for what was served. We gave plenty of notice of a shellfish allergy and while I was served 3 seafood dishes, my husband would get a spear of asparagus, or a few medallions of seared turnip. How do you charge the same price for two diners who’s meals don’t match cost wise? A little more effort would have been appreciated.
Ambiance there is really nice and the service you receive goes above and beyond. Everyone is very passionate about the food and your enjoyment.

We were there for lunch, for 2, and since we were driving we shared a wine pairing to go with the blind tasting menu. It was wonderful to taste the wines paired with the different courses and to get a little information on each wine. Each course was delicious; so much so, that it’s hard to decide which was our favourite but the Berkshire pork (main course) was awesome. We didn’t add the cheese course since that would have been too much food for us, this time. I would definitely like to go back at different seasons to taste the changing menu and to experience the view of changing seasons. The tables for 2 are beside the windows and offer beautiful views of the surrounding orchards. The service is impeccable. Each course is explained when served along with fresh cutlery provided. Amazing experience.

Overall, I can definitely see why this restaurant is so highly rated. The setting is mysterious yet spectacular. The service was incredible. The flavours were amazing. Presentation, outstanding. My only criticism, is the portion size. After 10 courses, you shouldn't leave a restaurant hungry. Everything else is 5 * plus.

This is considered one of the best restaurants, if not the best, in Canada. It has very good service, good food and relatively good value. Small portions at high prices though, cannot make up for the positives. Ambiance is casual chic.

First of all, this place has, indeed, exceptional service. Knowledgeable and considerate wait staff, great timing, but at a 20% mark up for service, I would expect nothing less.

Food portions are minuscule. Tasty, interesting local produce make for creative food. But even at 9 courses of one bite each, the only two bite portion was the bbq steak course; it just about manages, with the extra bread and water, to suffice a moderate appetite. At an average of $12 a bite, maybe it'll make you come back for more, but being a relatively out of the way place, a 2 Michelin star it is not.

Absolutely wonderful evening that was far beyond expectations. Tasting menu was superb. Staff were attentive and informative but did not feel rushed. Wines offered were delightful especially the Morissette Chardonnay
Worth the wait as reservations are difficult to obtain in this limited seating. Highly recommend. Will definitely come back and will look for a table with a view.
Loved the tour of the kitchen, prep and cold room.
Thank you for the outstanding birthday experience.

You definitely have to be into unique food and also be willing to eat whatever they decide to serve you, but if you are open to that the experience is really amazing. The food was all very unique, the service was stellar, the location was amazing. Just overall something we really enjoyed.

An absolutely fantastic dining experience from start to finish. The menu was exquisite and unique and the wine pairings were perfect. Our server Martin was very knowledgeable and generous with his time, offering recommendations and detailed information on each wine producer and region. Everything was over and above, and with the lovely extra perks including an extra tasting, and a take home gift - plus the opportunity to purchase Pearl Morissette wine - we couldn't be happier. We will miss having this restaurant in our backyard - it truly deserves all the praise it's been getting.

What a lovely atmosphere and a total hidden gem. We drove up in the dark on a rainy night and were very fortunate to have scoped the map, or we never would have found the place! Tucked away in an inconspicuous black barn is an absolute delight of a dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff was kind and very knowledgeable about the food and wine served. The menu changes daily and it is refreshing not having to fuss over what to choose. We loved it and will be back.

This was the best restaurant I have eaten at. The food and the service is amazing. The portions are small but after receiving so many of them they add up to a very satisfying meal. We both left full and we are both big eaters. There was not one item that we did not enjoy. I am not a drinker but had a juice which I wish could be purchased by the bottle. A must try!
