This place always delivers! I love going there with my daughter. This time I had the cilantro lime shrimp salad and it was so fresh and scrumptious!
Thank you for the amazing food and service!

This is a central place to eat in the downtown shopping area, unless you want the foods fair in the mall.
The food is tasty and affordable. The restaurant is very bright and airy with a nice view.

We arrived close to closing time (Covid Time) and our server ( who was also working the bar) made us feel really welcome and encouraged us to take our time once we had placed our order ( the kitchen was closing). He checked in several times and when we offered to hurry, he encouraged us to relax, take our time, enjoy the view and the meal. It made all the difference.

Lovely view from window table. Food was excellent but pricey for lunch. A bit disappointed in lack of BC wines on list. Service was very good allow lots of time for 2 old friends to get caught up on the all the news.

Loved the flourless chocolate cake! Tacos were decent (7.5/10), wild salmon nicoise was also 7.5/10 (salmon was a bit overcooked). Good food, great view, friendly service. Wouldn't say amazing compared to other places.

I used to love it here, but food seems to have been simplified and not as delicious as I remember. Seating and atmosphere are also basic now, perhaps showing it's age.

A good place for lunch with a friend, especially if you can score a window table. Pizza is excellent. Wine list is a little pricey.

Service was terrible. It was a Wednesday night and only one person working behind the bar. It took 30 minutes to get a drink. I had to follow up with the bartender to get that drink.

Reservation made 2 months in advance for window table for annual birthday celebration at Nordstrom which was not honored due to guest calling that same morning, according to very rude hostess, requesting the only window table that would accommodate 5 or more guests. I was told I had to call to confirm request by hostess. Waitress was inattentive , never even refilled water glasses although many tables were given water carafes. Food was only saving grace.

Always love visiting this restaurant for its fresh and quality food and wonderful ambience. The service is slow, but I’ve liked the relaxed pace as it allows more opportunity to visit with the person I’m dining with. Would definitely recommend!
