Went to dine here with our family for my birthday. The food was delicious and the service was good. It is a louder atmosphere even at about half full. You can always count on a good meal here.

We were warmly welcomed by friendly and attentive staff, who continued to dote on us during our stay. Half price bottles of wine was nice, but was not the highlight. The grilled corn, jerk chicken tacos, cab petite steak, and Thai fired rice were shared by our party of three, and it was wave after wave of fabulous food! The steak is served, by default, medium rare to rare and it is nice to see that the chef is trying to maintain the high quality of the dish by not over cooking. Having said that, our server said that they would cook it to order if requested. Overall a great experience!

Margaritas were excellent, most of the food was excellent (especially dan dan noodles, fried rice and jerk tacos). Only criticism would be the tortilla chips with sauces. Both of the salsas were sweet, would be great to have one that isn’t. Salsa verde in my opinion would have been better had it not been sweet, and the guacamole portion could have been a bit bigger. Other than that, all around awesome! Service was attentive and friendly, Love coming here.

Despite booking a reservation, our table was given to someone else who claimed they had the exact same first and last name as me despite my name being rather rare. We were 5 mins early for our reservation and it was given away. The server offered a spot for us at the bar, located on the back corner where the servers continuously walked by. We were not given an special treatment or accommodations for this issue and not only was it our first experience it was a birthday celebration. At this point the couple who stole our reservations should have been moved Or special arrangements should have been made for us. After 30mins of sitting at the bar we were finally given a table. The food was decent and the servers were nice but it was rather loud for a dining experience.

We had the corn and tempura for apps- both amazing!! Tried a couple different cocktails, both were delicious. We got the lobster tacos to share, they tasted great but had big chunks of meat with little extras, probably wouldn’t get them again.
Definitely coming back!

Canadiens vs Jets postgame meal. Lots of energy as expected, but the service was remarkably efficient despite the controlled chaos. Julia gets full marks for a pleasant and unflappable server!
The food as usual was outstanding and well matched with cocktails, wine, and beer. Love the Dan Dan and wings and tacos and...... everything!!
Will certainly be back!!

The ambiance is great, as well as the food and customer service! Downside: it got really noisy after 9:00 pm (Jets game, DJ), so it was hard to maintain a conversation. The table is too wide and the sparkling wine selection could be better (it’s either a cheap one that will give you a headache or a super expensive champagne). Overall a good experience, I recommend and would be back gladly.

We unfortunately had to cut our visit short to no fault of the restaurant so we weren’t able to experience the full evening. They packed up our meal however and held it until we could return later that evening to pick it up. Very accommodating. We will return again

I love the vibe here. The decor is fun, modern and warm. The menu is creative and the dishes are all so tasty. We shared the tuna, superfood salad and fried chicken and it was all fantastic. Plus they take reservations which was super handy to get us in, out and to the Jets game (across the street) on time.

I did not enjoy the food.
I had wanted something Keto Friendly but there were no really good options.
I wanted a burger on lettuce instead of a bun and it was in the lunch menu and I was not accommodated
The coffee was terrible
