Patrick our server is VERY good. Just seems to know when he is needed and when he is not,but always is professional but personable. He is delightful. The food is delicious. We had salmon, a huge steak and chicken parmigiana. Cooked to perfection. He brought me a lovely piece of cheesecake for my birthday. The restaurant was very busy, a few office groups celebrating , led to the noise level being very high

We were celebrating my Mom’s 91st birthday. We didn’t get to go out for her 90th because of COVID, so this was a double celebration. Our welcome was warm. Our server, Johnto, was very personable and helpful when informing us about the menu. Our food was delicious. mom had 2 appetizers - escargots and garlic and wine shrimp. She really enjoyed them, along with the garlic bread and pate. I had escargots to start and the petit filet mignonette. The steak was so tender and the cauliflower in a cheese sauce was heavenly. A complementary piece of cheesecake, smothered in caramel sauce, with candied walnuts, whipped cream and a sliced strawberry was presented to Mom as a birthday treat. It was a delightful evening.

Went here for my mom's dinner. The staff was great, from the very friendly host to our waiter who made sure we got exactly what we wanted. Would definitely come here again for another special occasion. The food was also quite delicious.

Included comments on our reservation re: 40th anniversary. When greeted, hostess asked about special occasion and we stated 40th. anniversary. After being seated, service was excellent as usual, food was very good. My wife’s steak was excellent, mine was 30% gristle, however I did eat the steak as the rest was ok. Normally I do not send main course food back in a fine dining establishment as it tends to throw the whole mood and timing off on an otherwise enjoyable evening.

Although the food was very good, we found the service lacking. We sat for 10 minutes before anyone offered us a wine list or asked if we would like a drink. For the most part our waiter was disinterested and just going through the motions. There was not any of personal interaction that we witnessed with most of the other servers.

The decor is beautiful inside and there are nice touches of elegance everywhere.

Our waiter was very pleasant and even gave us a complimentary dessert for our wedding anniversary!

Portion sizes were good and because we had two appetizers I had leftovers of my lobster entree for dinner tonight. The steak was a bit on the salty side but still tasty.

We were surprised at how many people were in the restaurant on a Monday night and so the noise level got louder as the night progressed.

Fine dining at its finest. We went for the Dover Sole. Wow! One of us had the catch of the day, Lake Huron perch. Almost the same wow factor. Wonderful spot that we might have not known about without a recommendation from friends in St. Catharines.

It was ok. It was not terrible nor was it exceptional.
They clearly have a loyal following so there doesn’t seem to be a need for improvement. Their drink menu was mediocre. The plating of food was 1990’s average. Everything was vanilla ice cream.
For small town Burlington it definitely is one of the better restaurants but paired up against busier cities, more options, I feel they would struggle.

Service and good were amazing. It was our 20th wedding anniversary and we were extremely well taken care of.

There was a table of sales people in the opposite corner of the restaurant we spent the entire evening on their phones and in loud discussion without regard or care for anyone but themselves. If I knew the name of the company they worked for I’d gladly shame them.
