A great little restaurant to go to before a show. Service is excellent and the food is original and tasty. Think maybe wine list could do with some improvement - bit limited.

We like this restaurant for its location, food and variety of wines. However, for the portion sizes (both wine and food), it’s rather pricey.

Birthday celebration with 3 ladies. There was a retirement party on which took up most of the place and made it a bit noisy. Service was slow and disinterested but the food was good. I found the menu a bit limited and would have liked more choice.

Was looking for some place in the area to go for dinner prior to a concert and could not have been happier with my decision. Always nice to find a good place to eat and enjoy conversation with friends. Great food and great service. What more do you need.

The food was tasty and satisfying. A very nice cauliflower soup. Chorizo with white beans was my favorite. The wines were good enough. The staff were very personable and sweet but we were looking around for assistance a few times and it seemed like a quiet evening. I'll return for the food, ambiance and low volume level that made conversing easy.

Finally got a chance to try this little gem. It is small but cozy and I was very pleased with my overall experience. The staff was personable and helpful in both the wine and menu selection. I was even offered a sample of the recommended wine....much appreciated. Dinner was very good....Parisian gnocchi! I now want to return to try breakfast. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Charming neighbourhood find for brunch offering fine meat & cheese boards and wine list. Our hostess/waitress recommended the Croque Madame; it was very good and hit the spot. Smart and sleek design for restaurant space. Cozy vibe and get the feel that this is local favourite hang out for drinks. It was our first time and hope to come back for pre-show dinner.

I met a friend for a fairly impromptu early dinner. We had a lovely waitress who was quick to make suggestions, all of which were very good. It is the perfect neighbourhood spot. A word of caution, they used to have a full bar but serve only (delicious) wine now.

First lunch visit to Stable after 3 dinners. Small but effective menu. Like dinner, food is spot on. Not delicate, not heavy. Just spot on. Not many gd places outside of downtown open and appropriate for biz lunch. Stable wasn’t busy, but I hope they manage to remain open for lunch. Will become my “stable” go to.

Excellent service and knowledgeable wait-staff about their menu and in-house specialties. We enjoyed being seated at a quiet table in the nook which made for good conversation. The house made chicken liver pate was smooth and flavourful and the wine as also good.

Usually great, this last visit was lacking. Service was not very good, kitchen was slow, and server was more focused on folding napkins and polishing glasses than the tables being served. The food was very good, however the menu needs a refresh.
