This place surprised us. Music was fun. Food was great - we both had gnocchi (I modified it to vegetarian - with mushrooms) So good! Also had the squash salad. Yummy. Red wines by glass surprisingly lacking in variety. Cute place. I would recommend.

Stable house always delivers. I was there twice in a 10 day period. A birthday dinner and a work lunch. Both were perfect. Great food, service and ambiance.

Generally enjoyed this restaurant but only one concern. One of our party has a serious alIergy and neither the server nor the chef seemed to clearly know if her food was safe for her to eat. This substance is a natural colourant and becoming more common as an allergen. It made the experience a bit worrisome. Generally, more education is needed in all restaurants about food allergies.

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 and cheese boards. On this occasion, tried the Croque Madame and 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.
