Love this restaurant! The food is divine, service is always great. My only ongoing complaint is how NOISY it is! Music is loud, and talking is louder. Wish they could change the acoustics.....

Would go again for the food
We had a reservation on a friday 8:15. The cocktails were well thought out but overpriced, and our server did not pick the best wine choices per our taste, but we think she might have been training. We had a deconstructed steak tartare to start, which was lovely, and both the deep fried chicken and the steak frites were great. The chocolate chilli mousse for dessert was to die for and I could have found room for another. The music was good, but at that level where you're almost shouting to talk to the person across the table from you. Considering most people were there for dates or dinner parties, the music didn't have to be quite that loud.

Loved :) Will return Only
Only complaint was my food did not arrive hot, merely warm. Not worth sending back for as it would have changed the dining experience with the other 3 guests but if it were just the 2 of us, we would have asked.

Salad was served in a big bowl w/ fresh nuts!! Yummy dressing & so healthy.
Mussels were fresh and plentiful, served w/ homemade warm breads.
I ordered steel-head trout for entree which was served in a deep dish w/ mexed beans
and broccolini. Totally enjoyed every bite. Everything was so creative assembled!
Will go back and tell friends. Price is extremely reasonable.

Nice lil intimate dining resto!!
The place is a little small but the food is fantastic. Mussels, burger and brussel sprouts had lots of flavour.

Great dining experience with
Great dining experience with the exception of a little bit of misunderstanding from the waitress who muddled my order, but not a big issue. Food was divine and the atmosphere was fun and lively! I would definitely go back.

Amazing Duck Confit!
I took a friend here for her birthday dinner and was really impressed with the overall experience. My only gripe is that the brie appetizer is ridiculously miniscule for the price. We were expecting a little wheel of brie, but instead it was about 3 tiny slices of cheese that all but disappeared (melted) into the mushrooms. The flavours were exceptional, though, and left us wanting more. The mussels were quite good and the portion of fries was huge. The duck confit was the star of the night, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The cocktails were fabulous and the service was amazing. I'll definitely be back.

A very lovely find
Randomly picked this place because it was near Kits beach - definitely a gem. Very close to Kits beach, you can walk on the sand after dinner to end the night romantics. We ordered starters, mussel & bacon wrapped figs. The figs was my favorite. I am not a big fan of figs, but bacon makes it so goooood. Mains we had summer pasta and the halibuts - the fish was nicely cooked. Great taste. The service was good, it was very friendly and cozy - "We're here to enjoy our nights and be ourselves, not to put on a gong show". It was definitely a fabulous evening. :)

Dinner before Bard on the Beach
Found this restaurant online while looking for a place to eat before Bard on the Beach. The location is convenient and easily accessible by public transit. I had the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. So delicious and moist. Not overbattered or greasy. Complimented nicely by the wilted kale, biscuit and gravey! Will definitely visit again.

My girlfriends took me here
My girlfriends took me here for my birthday. We ordered almost everything off the menu, and I have to say every dish left us wanting more! We will definitely be coming back!

Great Halibut, the chef seemed willing to accommodate dietary needs. Good service. WARNING: The inside is VERY VERY LOUD - which is difficult to have a dinner and hear the person you are with. There is no flexibility on this - it is a conscious decision to maintain the noise level very high. We ate outside which was a lovely contrast - so I would recommend this place for dinner only if there is room outside and it is a nice enough weather that you will enjoy the time on the patio. They are also known for 'comfort food' and late night dining.

Pleasant - with room to improve
I recently made a reservation noting that we were coming to celebrate a birthday. They didn't look up the reservation when we came in and so they didn't note the fact that it was a birthday dinner. The cocktails we ordered were great, as were the appetizers. The mains were basic but good. I would have appreciated a proper steak knife for my steak dish - I asked for it and was told none were available. It was a chore using the butter knife.

It has a small bistro feel. We were 4 at a small table. The drinks choices were great, wines, cocktails, sherry, whiskers. Food was almost all excellent. (Skip the steak tartare). Friendly warm staff and atmosphere. Would definitely go back for special occasions.

Much better than I expected.
Much better than I expected. The food was delicious and the service was good. Both snack of bacon wrapped figs and deep fried pork belly was yummy. Bruschetta was surprisingly good and Duck Confit was tender. Well done!

This is not a location where you would expect to find a restaurant of this quality. My wife had the Halibut, always a good test since it is not an easy fish to cook properly. It was done perfectly with an interesting and delicious sauce. I had the special for the evening, a vegetable lasagna. It was presented nicely and was tastier than many vegetable lasagnas I've had in the past. The wine list had many choices we had not tried before. The interior is small but well laid out with a bench along the window wall with small tables and facing chairs. In spite of the proximity to other diners there was a sense of privacy. The noise level was not excessive. We will recommend it to our friends.

Good but for one thing....
When dining, we like to be able to talk with the rest of our table without straining to hear what they are saying. We found the music was being played too loudly. When we asked if it could be turned down, we were told that it was loud so you couldn't hear what others were saying. Perhaps, but we also had difficulty hearing each other at the table. The louder music is the louder people talk, making talking more of a yelling session.
On a very positive note, the service was excellent, very attentive and accomodating with respect to certain food restrictions a guest had. Our meals were all excellent.
