Feels like eating in someone's home, i.e., comfortable and welcoming. Food is excellent, wine list is extensive. House wine is fine. We will be back.

Covid guidelines and protocols were well followed. The servers were attentive. Quality and taste of food were excellent. Special mention goes to the 2 appys that we had...super fresh and delicious clam in white wine and tomato, as well as the grilled calamari with arugula. Mains were superb as well. However, our otherwise wonderful dining out experience tonight was tarnished, came time to settle up the bill. Being a regular dine out patron using the Opentable reservation platform, we accumulates enough to redeem dining rewards cheques from Opentable which can then be used at face value towards the bill when booked through Opentable. We had no issues whatsoever in the past cashing out this type of dining cheqs. But imagine our absolute disappointment when we presented ours with our credit card but the cheq was not accepted.The restaurant has no reason not to since they participates in the Opentable reservation platform. I made a bit of a stink and the server had no choice but to make a call to their owner. After some back and forth, he relented. Question is: WHY?? Why did you have to dampen your customers dining experience by refusing an otherwise 100% legit cheq?? Ownership is simply lazy and lame in not wanting to put thru any dining cheq to the bank or thru Opentable for cashing. In these difficult times, to have customers step in to support you by coming in to spend money at your restaurant is priceless. But you chose to screw that up by dampening our dining experience. Would've been a 5 star otherwise.

The location was great, had parking underneath and wasn't too loud or busy when we arrived. The service was outstanding. Attentive but not rushed. The meals were reasonably priced and absolutely mouth watering. I had the lamb as part of the dine-out menu and it was fantastic. Only surprise was that to get the dine-out package everyone at the table had to order from the dine-out menu. We hadn't experienced at other restaurants offering dine-out so this was a little disappointing to my partner who'd hoped to order something from the regular menu. Other than that, the venue was wonderful, relaxed and Commercial Drive old-school Vancouver chic. Loved it.
