Great service and food as usual.
Waitress was fabulous! Food was amazing, great atmosphere. Favourite spot downtown.
Our server, Scott, was great and he had a lot of tables to take care of. Very friendly staff all around, service was great, food delicious. Fun, lively atmosphere.
Overall very well cooked and presented exceptional taste, salmon was excellent the pork also was excellent but I feel a bit small proportioned, yes I highly recommend this restaurant
Great care goes into everything they do. Mindful dining at its best.
Be sure to try Sophie's cappuccinos.
Grand spot. One the best restaurants pound for pound in Canada.
I named the moose Alexander. The food was excellent and for how lovely it was, the price was actually very reasonable. Cool environment. Went for a one year anniversary meal; server was kind and the food came very quickly.
Never fails to provide an awesome dining experience. Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere
Fantastic restaurant. Food was absolutely incredible and arrived fairly quickly for a busy time of night. Service staff was very accommodating and friendly. Loved the whole set up and decor of the restaurant, felt like a super unique experience. 10/10 stars, definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good date night restaurant!
The cod tacos and homemade burger were the best I’ve ever tasted. And dedicating dishes to raise money for a local child battling cancer warms my heart. Way to go!
Great venue, amazing food! The brunch menu is affordable and delicious
Great food, service and atmosphere. Best brunch in town! And the specials - like the donuts - are AMAZING!
Fabulous food. The duck dish was amazing. Love the ambience of this place! Will definitely go back !
Noisy. Expensive, Although my pasta dish was very good, my husband's cod was dry and overcooked- in retrospect he should have sent it back.
Our meals were great - chicken and waffles were so good! Service was outstanding - gave us the pickle!
Food was dandy...drinks were as good or better. Our server was top shelf, all around terrific experience.
Excellent food and lovely service - a very lively spot but still able to hold a conversation. It’s alive with people having a good time - not blaring music.
It's become our favorite place to go for date night! Food is always great and service is outstanding.
Fantastic as always. See you again soon
Love the place
Their Brunch is to die for! Amazing food, service and ambiance with a live music! Prices are very fair! Will definitely be returning!
I know that prices have gone up around the city, but $38 just seemed a lot to pay for steak and frites.
Always a great experience!... Top notch service from Deidre, Ryan and Team! And, THE BEST Caesar and quiche you'll find anywhere! And even Chef Jeremy Charles came over to the table to have a chat... How awesome is that! A perfect way to end the #SOE #Snowmagedden2020!!
Had a wonderful evening. The food was fantastic and our server made sure everything was perfect. Probably our new favourite date night spot.
Great good and service! I found the noise level a bit much in the last hour I was there (8-9pm). That withstanding, it was a nice evening!
Excellent meal and service!
We have been there a few times and always really enjoyed the food. However, the food was either overdone or very bland this time.
The flavor of the food was awesome. You can tell that everything was made in house. Excellent food
Try the brunch and the breakfast biscuit. Yum!
My wife was vegetarian and There are only 2-3 items on the menu for her (1 of each of appetizer, and main), so the kitchen made her a special surprise meal, however, it consisted of 3 pieces of cauliflower, 3 slices of carrot, and a 1/4 of an apple sliced with dressing. It was tasty but more an appetizer than a meal - but priced as a main course. I had a very good meal, being a meat eater.
With more people being vegetarian and vegan, there should be a little more attention paid to serving them properly. Although I had a good meal, we may not be going back because of my wife’s inability to get a decent meal out, unless there are vegetarian ‘tweaks’ to the menu.
Great food. Great service. Great place.
Excellent service. Beverages were superb.
Apps were excellent. Steak was a little tough, but cooked perfectly otherwise. Definitely go again.
I had just returned home and saw a friend of mine for the first time in six months. This place had a great brunch, with plenty of options and even more customization capabilities. Such a great spot for the modern twist on traditional Newfoundland food.
We dine here periodically and find the overall experience enjoyable . The steeped tea is better than before.
The noise level at times can be quite high.
Food was good but took a while to come out from the kitchen. Cod soup had one bite of fish and was quite spicy. My friend sent hers back and received another full of fish. I didn’t bother. She said the profiteroles were the best she ever had and she has travelled everywhere in the world! Server was amazing :)
Fantastic service, great food
Service at the bar when we got there was excellent.
Once seated the service today was a little on the poor side.
Shame because usually it is very good no matter how busy.
