Definitely a bit disappointed with the small amount of burrata that comes with the prosciutto appetizer. Only ordered it for the burrata and kind of wish I got the burrata salad instead. Should have ask the waitress for her opinion but didn’t think it would be that little.

Very happy with the seating though! Requested a booth and got a really great one!

Food, ambiance and craft cocktails are fabulous, and VERY well done. Dance club in back, noise level a bit high.

We had a wonderful meal. It was our first time their and we were celebrating an early Valentine’s Day before heading to VSO. Our waiter made great recommendations and the food was superb. We will be back before our next concert.

The food was AMAZING! The service was very good. Our only complaint was that the music was very very loud. It was hard to keep a conversation and it felt like we were having dinner at the very core of the club. Overall is a great place to eat!

We arrive a little bit late for our reservations and they seated us right away. The waitress was great she told us about happy hour and the dine out Vancouver menu. She even came back and let us know that happy our was ending. The food was great, we will be going back.

Fantastic Dine out experience. Appies were fantastic and the Chefs desert was great. The mains were tasty but did not blow me away with flavour like the Appies did. Would be even better with a wine pairing option. Great service and all round experience.

Went there with my girlfriends for a birthday dinner and the food was amazing! We loved the atmosphere, only downside was the service. The waitress was not very friendly or accommodating when that is her job. Would have made the experience much more enjoyable if she had just been a bit more friendly.

I’ll start off with the food being absolutely amazing! No room to improve there.
We had a reservation for 7:30. I called at 7:10 to let them know as a courtesy that we were running a tiny bit late and would be there no later than 7:40. We got there at 7:37 but weren’t seated until 8:04. We almost walked out. When we were seated it was nice but as loud as a bar on game night, not the ambience we were looking for. The appetizers were incredible as well as the rest of the food but the dishes just sat on the table until the next course came. It could be just me but I hate empty dishes sitting in front of me.
It was nice to try but as amazing as the food was I don’t think we’ll go again. Well, not right away anyways.

I had been looking forward to dinner. It was the only DineOut I even booked for this year and the menu looked great and would have been my first time there.

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in the meal. While the appetizers were lovely and delicious, the mains left a lot to be desired. All 3 of us in the party ordered the lobster tagliatelle. I had been expecting a lighter sauce to allow the lobster to shine. Instead, we got bowls of slightly gummy pasta in what could have been canned tomato sauce that had been made so spicy it was practically inedible. I LIKE spicy food but this was way too much and completely obliterated any lobster flavour - all one could taste was the heat of the chiles. One of our party had to send it back as she could not stomach the spice and got push-back from the server who stated that the description indicated Chili-marinated lobster. Extremely misleading as it was not just the lobster that had been marinated in the chiles but rather the entire dish.

Dessert consisted of fresh-baked cookies.

All in all, extremely disappointing for $45 meal.

I hope this is not representative of their regular menu!

Restaurant was warm and comfortable. Servers were friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful (especially the Chinois prawns and Lobster Tagliatelle) and had a great bottle of cab sav. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to return.

Th food was very good. The servers and staff were very kind. However waiting 45 min for your table when you have a reservation is ridiculous. And we were not compensated in any way for our time.

Table should fit comfortably for the correct party that reserved a table a few days ago. We had 3 people in our party and was given a table that fitted for 2 people. This was obvious as there were only 2 sets of dining culinary.
The manager was great and gave us a free shrimp appy and our server was good; however gorgot to offer us a dessert menu. We ended up having dinner from 7:15pm to 9:30pm because they said they were going to give us a table and we waited for 1 hour and still no table! Unfortunately, the seating/table that we got gave us a bad experience at this restaurant.

We went for happy hour on a Saturday afternoon, meeting up with an old friend. We booked using the Open Table app. Very easy to do! We arrived and were sat at a lovely corner booth near the entrance. In our opinion, the best table in the place. Happy hour snacks and drinks were wonderful in all ways. They were fast, fresh and hot, great value. All the things! Would definitely go back.

The food was great and service was good.
But music was too loud inside and out on the patio too.
So it was hard to talk to each other.

Excellent evening, and a very pleasant experience. Food and drinks were on point, lamb shank was fall off the bone tender. Didn't feel rushed at all, and loved the relaxed/smart casual atmosphere (also the comfy leather couches and soft cushions👌)

Service was great and our waitress went above and beyond. We ordered a bunch of the happy hour items and the food was amazing for the value. She also comped us a portion of one appetizer when we were disappointed for not ordering it. Will definitely go back. The prawn appetizer and the meatballs we great.
