The surroundings were so pretty with a lot of windows to the beautiful garden. Loved the food and the tea options. Took some of the cakes with us because it was a lot to eat. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

It was our first time at Cucci, all the recommendations to try it were justified! Although not much selection on the menu, their daily specials are worth trying. We had the grilled chicken with pasta, veggies in an olive oil, garlic and a touch of goat cheese…Simply divine! The portions are very generous including the appetizers and entrees and can easily be shared. A must in Oakville, and a repeat for special occasions for us!

I was celebrating my parents' 50th Anniversary. During the online reservation, I mentioned that and asked for a fine table. We were given the best table (rounded one by the window) and service possible. The food was spectacular, and Carlo (the waiter) was very attentive and kind. Ultimately, my parents got a cake with candles and a lot of attention from Da Vinci's team. I think I couldn't've asked for a batter diner.

My wife and I went there for our anniversary and it was perfect. There is plenty of good food in Banff but if you want fine dinning, go to Eden. From the moment you check in to the desert, you know you are at a very nice restaurant. My wife recently developed a food allergy and I simply cannot explain the level of effort that the staff and the chef made to accommodate. You felt as if you were the only people in the room and the staff was plesantly friendly and warm. We ended up laughing and staying much later than expected due to the wonderful staff. I would absolutely go back in the future and I highly recommend the food, staff and overall experience.

We have been to LaRonde many many times. Always enjoy the food and the view of the city. Service is always great. The only thing I have to say that is slightly negative is the choice in music that is played. In my own opinion it should be more low-key, soft music instead of upbeat energetic but seriously that is me nit-picking. Will definitely go back again.

Decadently delicious! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Langdon Hall in the main dining room. We started with their freshly baked sourdough bread and chive and gruyere bread. Next, we were presented with a delicious amuse bouche of their house-made ricotta and mini lettuce leaves, topped with the petals of a citrus plant and served on a piece of natural slate. We both chose the Beets and Berries appetizer and we both thought it was outstanding! I chose the sable fish while my husband chose the chicken. Again, we were both impressed with the delicious, mouth-watering taste of our entrées. We had no room left to sample the dessert choices with our coffee and blueberry tea but our server brought us each a mini-muffin and a jellied apricot bite! Just a perfect meal! Compliments to the creative chef!!
