Love the food here and the local beer list. Server was a little slow this time whoch isn't a big deal, we just happened to be in a hurry and it was hard to get her attention. It was a shame we couldn't sit downstairs as requested (it seemed to be closed). Saying that, the Thai Curry soup was great and we all had a good time. Will be back :)

The quality of our food and drink was good, but we were extremely disappointed with our service. Our server appeared to be high or intoxicated as she was incapable of stringing a single sentence together. The service was also very slow and the hostess extremely rude to us. I have never seen a staff treat their paying customers so poorly. As someone who frequents local restaurants in support of the community, it saddens me that I cannot recommend this restaurant to others. I will not be returning.

We had a very nice Valentine's dinner. They started us off with a complimentary drink and amuse bouche - nice touch. The fried olives are amazing and the savoury bread pudding was great too. We shared the duck breast and the pljukanski (Croatian noodles). The duck was done to perfection and the noodles were a perfect pairing. Topped it all off with a Chateuneuf de Pape. Great service. We'll definitely be back.

We’ve dined here a few times and have never been disappointed -always a great dining experience. The food is very flavourful - finished the meal with the tiramisu creme brûlée - yummy! Our server was super friendly & attentive - we will be back!

The restaurant ambience is nice. We ordered chicken wings which were the smallest wings I’ve ever seen. I also ordered a Tokyo Mule and after I’d had a few sips realized they’d forgotten the ginger beer. Unbeknownst to me they were actually out of ginger beer but didn’t bother to tell me when I ordered the drink. Weird since ginger beer is the main ingredient in a mule. In the end I likely won’t go back.

Table setting for 4 was too small and seating was not very comfortable. As well, found quite noisy. Having said that, the food was very good and our server was excellent. We will go back.

Great little place. Casual, but classy at the same time. We had the Oysters Rockefeller, Fried Chicken, and Grilled Cauliflower. All were exceptional and cooked excellently. Fried Chicken and Old Fashioned's were on special on Thursdays. Drinks were mixed perfectly as well. Very friendly service, nice lounge atmosphere. Comfortable.

I can't say enough good things about The Wednesday Room. It's cosy and cool, the food is incredible and Maria is an amazing server. The Pljukanci pasta is incredible and the deals on an actual Wednesday are phenomenal.

The food was amazing and our server made excellent recommendations. My group had an Interest in sitting downstairs and when requested with the server she kept this in mind and moved us downstairs when a table become available.

Great atmosphere. Really fantastic, comfortable space. Super cool vibes and a nice wine list. However, the service was frankly subpar (we tried to make eye contact with ANY server, but no one would come over to us, even when they noticed), and the food is super overpriced for what you get. Some dried out fries and some aioli that's basically just mayo will tip you into the double digits. If you're going for drinks, this place is 10/10. If you're going for fast service and a snack, don't.

When we(myself and my spouse) arrived at the restaurant 15 minutes late, the hostess told us we must hurry there is a renovation at 8 p.m. when we arrived at 6:15 p.m. I just didn't think that was necessary. Other than that everything was lovely! Our waitress was great and the food was fantastic.

We waited over 40 min for someone to even offer us water- honestly not a big deal - they took care of our drinks. However we then waited even longer to have our food order taken and 15min after they took our order they told us they were out of oysters- at 8pm on “oyster Monday”. They offered us a free appetizer in place of the oysters but that wasn’t really what we wanted. The appetizers were nothing spectacular. The servers were polite but inattentive and very busy. The small area is also very loud. Not sure if it was just an off night. May have been since several other people I know really enjoy this place.

Usually like sitting downstairs at Wednesday Room however it was full so sat upstairs. It’s a different vibe. For the price of eating and enjoying a bottle of wine we felt very rushed, our server was ok and just didn’t have a great time. It was good.

I organized a birthday dinner here for 10 people. I had dinned here before but they had a new menu. Pros: great cocktails, nice vibe, excellent steak and fried bread. Cons: Poor service for large groups, average food. Details: The two food items I mentioned were great. The rest was ok. To share we ordered cauliflower, broccoli, jerk wings, chicken fried rice, potatoes, springs rolls, fried bread, steak and lamb. Unfortunately the steak and lamb came out last after everyone had filled up on veggies and rice. I wish the meat had come out with a veg or potato in closer proximity instead of having a large gap of time in between. My largest disappointment was the service. We spent $1300 (including tip) and the waitress was never around. At one point my friend was pouring the wine because half the table had empty glasses. Also, I understand the food comes out when its ready, however the waitress should have advised us how to expect delivery and that the meat would come out last so maybe we should order less. Based on the amount of money I spent I would recommended dining at another restaurant if you are going with a group.

We went for our anniversary, and it was such a lovely experience. We had the tuna tartar, the mushrooms, the duck, the bread pudding, and the baked Alaskan. We would highly recommend the duck and the mushrooms, although everything we had was delicious:
