                                                      Food was very good but the chef was very impatient with his newly hired untrained staff. For most of the night they were in tears. I could say so much more but I am just going to say to the chef that you were the cause of the chaos not your servers.

                                                      The food was very good but the service was terrible There was a fixed menu with a number of choices. Three main courses, four appetizers and soup or salad. Appetizers and meals were delivered to incorrect tables numerous times. Soup and salad was brought to our table after the main course as we informed the server we had not yet received them

                                                      Three friends had a wonderful dinner in this very lovely and comfortable restaurant. It is located in an area of the city with convenient, on street parking. The dining room is beautifully decorated and there is another very nice area where larger groups, e.g. birthday party or retirement celebration, could have a get together.

                                                      Appetizers (meatballs and dumplings) were amazing. The 2 pasta and shrimp entree’s were also very good, the pasta sauces made from scratch were delicious.

                                                      The restaurant was very quiet but the owner took care of us himself. We really enjoyed our dinner and would certainly return again.

We were a table of 6 and we were all thrilled with our appetizers and entrees. It was our 1st visit - definitely not our last!

                                                      If you are going to offer a martini perhaps you should own martini glasses. I ordered the Thai pasta and there were several mouthfuls of peanut butter not mixed in with the sauce which made for an unpleasant meal.

                                                      We showed up after booking a last minute reservation on here. I guess the restaurant wasn’t supposed to be open for supper, it was empty and the chef had just finished cleaning up. He still let us in with our 16 month old daughter to have our Mother’s Day meal. He made us a special order and gave us a free dessert. He was careful not to make the food too spicy for my baby, as she was sharing the meal with me. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves, at first I thought we were first ones there. It was truly amazing to be able to celebrate Mother’s Day this way. Great guy, very friendly. He could have told us he was closed, but he didn’t. That was awesome.

                                                      Stopped in to this quiet restaurant with my son. Food was delicious and affordable. the chef was friendly and entertaining. It was a weekday so not a lot of people, I will be back .

                                                      The food was great. Dumpling appetizer was tasty and rich. We both had the creamy curry pasta, which was excellent. Service was very attentive and truly interested in insuring everyone was happy. Only surprise was that there weren’t more people there on a Saturday night. We’ll be definitely be back.

                                                      Food was very tasty and innovative, although the chicken, initially, came undercooked, but was returned and came back done properly with profuse apologies.

                                                      The food and service was superb. Food was 5-star--like wow!! The owner is such a fun and inviting guy and would make anyone feel important. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet. Not sure if that is normal. Considering the delicious food (we had the lamb shank and stuffed Chicken) it should be packed. We went on Valentine's so expected it to be bursting! They've been open 28 years and have excellent ratings from some very high profile sources which is no surprise. I would say the decor doesn't live up to the level of the food but that isn't a deal breaker.

                                                      It was a quiet night in the restaurant, which was very surprising considering the quality of the food. The chef's special of chicken pasta with roasted red pepper, goat cheese, and fresh Parma was incredible, as was the stuffed chicken breast with spinach, prosciutto, goat cheese, and roasted red peppers. To finish the evening was a wonderful flourless chocolate tart which was extravagantly rich and flavourful. We will definitely be going back again.

                                                      Have to admit was a little nervous booking as most reviews said it was usually empty but we were pleasantly surprised! Service was perfect, loved the chatter with the cook/owner and server. Food was fantastic (we choose most of the servers recommendations). Atmosphere was wonderful. Have already booked with a larger group of friends :) a couple weeks down the road. J & D

                                                      We were there because they advertised a dinner special of spaghetti and meatballs and my husband loves spaghetti and meatballs. We were the only guests in the restaurant. The chef/owner was very garrulous and wanted to talk to us. While I appreciate that I did not appreciate his trying to force his uninvited ideas about natural options for cancer treatment when he saw that I was going through chemo and hair loss. And with that his other venture - all natural vitamins and minerals. The food would have received a higher rating if he had not decided on his own to add extra ginger to my appetizer because he thought it would be good for my health. It overpowered everything. /but the meatballs in the entrée were tender and juicy and we really enjoyed them. He did bring down the spice in my entrée after I said something so that was helpful. The price was right. Given that we do not get out as much as we would like due to my cancer treatments it would have been nice to have an evening that we could have enjoyed more. That being said, we will give it one more try. The venue is lovely and the ambience warm (except for the fact that there was dust allover the banquettes and back rests).

                                                      The food was great, maybe a little overpriced but still very good quality. There was only one chef even on Valentines Day, so the food took very long (50+ minutes). But the environment was relaxing and had a great time talking with my partner. The service was friendly but seemed unexperienced for such a fancy place. They were not as attentive to us as I expected since there are very few tables in the restaurant.

                                                      Went on Valentine's Day for dinner with my husband. The food (what we got of it!) was good but the service was terrible through no fault of the serving staff. It was clear that the chef was completely disorganized and simply couldn't keep things straight. Part of our order was sent to another table, and several couples simply left in frustration after waiting to be served. Won't be going back anytime soon.

                                                      Although the food was excellent, the atmosphere was uncomfortable. We were greeted by the chef and the waitress which was nice and were seated and given the chefs specials of the day. We were the only table in the restaurant all evening. After we ordered, it got uncomfortable. The chef seemed to complain loudly in the kitchen about what we had ordered. It was so uncomfortable our table of six almost left. Until one of us got up and asked the chef if we had done something wrong. We were glad we stayed as the meal was exceptional. However, I don't think we will be back.
