Lovely evening spot for dinner. Service was top notch. Had the chance to watch the baseball game while we enjoyed dinner. My husband loved the charcuterie flatbread and fries. I had the veg pasta with chicken. Very few vegetables and a lot is sauce.

First off I was surprised on how reasonable the prices were for the high quality dishes they offered! The food was amazing! I ordered the mussels and wow they were huge! They were the entire size of their shells. The sticky toffee pudding I could have ate 5 of them! Totally took me back to my British grandma and her making them. The staff was amazing and it was nice chatting with others at tables around me like we had known each other forever!!

The food was absolutely amazing. I had salmon and my husband had the pork chop. We both agreed that the meal was among the finest we had had for a very long time, and we have eaten in restaurants a lot across Canada. Our waiter was charming and helpful. We will definitely be back.

The cheerful and attentive waitress, topped with the excellent food prepared by the chef made for a lovely meal. The selection of drinks met our preferences. As well, we were seated in an out of the way spot which meant we could hear each other to enjoy our conversation.

Everything was lovely, our server was fantastic. However, the restaurant itself does not even ask if you have a reservation, so if you note a special occasion, they do not know anyway. I had noted it was my daughters birthday, but the restaurant did not have than info.

reservations were made for 4:30, we walked in and everyone just stared at us. Very awkward and unwelcoming. Server once seated was nice.
