The atmosphere was amazing and the staff were incredible. This was only outshined by the food. The Braham Fried Chicken was exquisite and the Surf and Turf made waves. Salute to the staff.

We loved our Poutine appetizer, and the Pinot Noir was very good, as was our server. However, we both ordered salad entrees, for $16 each. The salads were very small, more like an appetizer portion, my arugula was quite wilted by the time I got my salad also due to dressing being already on it, instead of offered on the side, felt like I was eating green strings. My husband's steak on his salad came out on a separate plate, rare, he asked for medium, and was a gristly, fatty cut- not a nice cut at all. We asked for a new piece which took 20 minutes- way too long for steak, but by that time he had eaten most of the salad that went with it, and I was finished. The hostess was running the food which we found odd, and the kitchen seemed disorganized. It was quite noisy due to two large girlfriend groups which could not be helped. I supposed for a romantic quiet fireside dinner I did not choose very well.

A little odd someone brought us water then Said it would be a while are server was delivering a room service order? Should have taken our drink order at that time wait would have been fine! I ordered the sea bass that I was told was a 7 once cut more like a 5 once cut of lake bass I hate when restaurants lie abouto the fish your getting, I'm not stupid I know the difference!!

Ambiance was nice. Food was just ok for the price. The restaurant was very cold and many guests were wearing coats during dinner.

They seemed to be understaffed for the evening

I ordered tomato bisque and salad. The waitress came back and said they were out of it. She didn't take it off my order, so I was charged for it. (I didn't notice until I was going over receipts) We ate at the buffet. The food was so cold and dry, I couldn't even eat it.

Great place. Romantic. Kitchen had an issue and our food took quite a while but they were great on updating us.. To be honest it was so neat in there (Our first time) I didn't even care. No Down Marks for it. Kept the wine flowing and all was great.

Highly recommend. Food was delicious and great choices!
