Great food! Nice singer. Great service. What was not to like.

We were lucky enough to be there in a slow time, but even so we were impressed by the attention we received. Someone was always there when we needed them while leaving us to ourselves otherwise. The food was excellent and the wine list outstanding. Definitely on our list when looking for a nice dinner out, especially for a special occasion.

Our servers were fantastic. Very attentive.

We had the tasting menu for Taste of Oakville which had highs and lows. The tuna tataki was overwhelmed by veggies and I’m still not sure I understand the mango coulis on the plate.

My husband beef green curry was fragrant and flavourful, very good. My sea bass was nicely cooked but it was hard to find the eggplant, peas and the mushrooms amongst the Japchae.

Finally the blueberry cheesecake cake was very good and had nice whole blueberries. The cheese plate was a bit of a joke with three slivers of different cheeses that were just ok.

I will say the layout for the bistro is squished. There are lots of larger tables with tables for two squeezed in. We were surrounded by tables with 4+ making it hard to hear my husband. We probably won’t be back but glad we went once.

I had lunch as part of The Taste of Oakville - overall the experience was very good. Highlight was the pecan tart pie !

Two couples for dinner made reservations last minute via open table. Attentive and knowledgeable staff but no pressure (we sat chatting long after we had settled the bill). Excellent and varied menu. Great ambiance with live entertainment but easy to carry on conversation. Will definitely return

This is a gem with an extremely varied and creative menu ranging from American to French to Italian. The soufflés were amazing and very similar to a high-end restaurant I ate at in Paris. Live music on Friday evening was fabulous. Great atmosphere of warmth and friendship where the owner sits and has dinner and welcomes guests and friends st the same time.

Food & service great, but noise level was impossible (due to other loud guests).

Decent food, great service, however, it was a Friday night and we were one of four tables the entire night. Felt awkward at times the restaurant was so dead. Not sure if we’ll be back. Had heard good things from Oakville locals but our experience says this is no longer a hot spot.

Overpriced for the quality. Food should never be this expensive
