Convenient and tasty. Great for kids. Portions seem to get smaller and smaller, kids portions are barely enough to feed a small 7 year old. Had same salad twice in a short span of time, added salmon once and received less salad. Also, pay extra to substitute gluten free pasta and the portion size shrinks. Will be keeping an eye on how things go here as we are regulars.

Last few times were decent, but this dinner was amazing! We were served by Samantha on the patio, who was absolutely amazing. Promptly attended to us, recommended a fantastic sparkling rosé, always made sure everything was great. Food came out swiftly, and the patio was always great as usual!

Food was good and the service was slow, but it was overlooked due to our discussions.

Food took long to come but was good.

The drinks did take long to come.

I invited business people for lunch today.
The steak ordered for my guest was medium well but it arrived medium with blood so he complained and they took his plate to kitchen and it came over cooked as hard piece of meat.
It was really a bad situation that we all had to eat our mains and he stayed waiting for his plate... and at the end his food came in a bad shape.
My guest was unhappy and we couldn’t complaint further as we had to go.
It was a bad embarrassing experience for me and they were important guests for me.

It is unbelievably loud in this restaurant. The food was okay, but for the price I wasn’t wowed by it. The service is quite good. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who wants to have a conversation over dinner. Also, on the two occasions that I have been, all but two of the toilets in the women’s room were clogged and the washroom seemed uncared for. Too bad, the vibe and location are quite good for this restaurant.

Came here tonight for my birthday with my kids and parents. Got a call earlier in the day to confirm my reservation, and girl who called asked if I was ok with a high top table. I said no, I had made a reservation for a regular table, and asked if that was still available. Girl says yes and I say great, thank you. When I get to the restaurant, my parents are already seated at a high top table! When I start to ask why, I find out the the regular table that was available for us is actually a chef table that seats 20, and was already partially occupied by another big group. I’m not interested in sitting with strangers when going out with my family, and I was really shocked that nobody told me that this was my only option for a non-high top table when they called me earlier. Off to a bad start.
Service was pretty sub-par. Our water was always empty and we resorted to taking our own water bottles from the bin where they were keeping them for the tables. When the wine came, the waitress filled one glass and put the bottle down. What about the other three???
Food was ok, everybody enjoyed their meal, nothing spectacular. The poor service underwhelmed and I likely won’t be rushing back especially with so many other options nearby.

It was a great night. Food was excellent. However had difficulty with timing. Asked for salad and child meal be delivered first and they never came. Had to ask a manager to assist with this. Otherwise great night.

It was our first time going to this restaurant. We made a reservation but the hostesses at the front had many people waiting to be seated. The hostesses were busy looking at their ipads and left people standing there without even greeting them. It took almost 15 minutes before we were acknowledged. We were finally seated. Wevordered the spinach and artichoke dip to start. It was not very good. The dip was more like a chunky dry paste and the bread which was lightly toasted was very hard. Our entrees took a long time to come out and the pizza primavera we ordered was cold. The spaghetti sorentina was warm but it lacked flavour and the mozzarella cheese on top was dry and hardened. Our waitress deducted the pizza from our bill and gave us complimentary deserts. The service from our waitress was excellent and a manager cam over to our table to apologize. Overall, the food is overpriced for the quality and portion size and really was not very good. I would not return to this restaurant.

It was a good experience, however there were extra charges that were not told to me when I asked for something, and my friend ordered a glass of wine, and she wished there was an option for a 6 ounce glass instead of just 8. She was a bit shocked on the price.

I am not sure we would go back. Our service was at best irratic! Main courses came wrong, salads came with main courses. Waitress seemed overworked and stressed. We hardly saw her. The meal seemed overpriced for the restaurant. One glass of wine was priced very high. On a good note the food was good.

Really enjoyed the food and the service was very good. The only thing I didn’t like is the seating, mostly wooden uncomfortable chairs. Fortunately there was a booth available and was able to sit there. In future will always ask for a booth.

We loved that you have a DJ, the atmosphere was great and the waiter and waitress were great. The welcoming party at the door seemed to be distracted all the time and didn't acknowledge everyone as they came in.

Overall, great experience....just wish your specialty drinks were a bit more reasonable.

Food was great and ambience is top notch! Classy decor and delicious items on the menu. Perfect spot for a date or just hanging out with your people. My date turned to be a gold digger when she opened her mouth while we were enjoying food at this restaurant And I’ll be coming back again but with a different date god save me lol. Cheers!
