I've been here many times for the inventive Asian-fusion food and the stellar service. Had a lovely conversation with the sommelier at the end of the meal that will bring me back so that I might continue it.

Really great experience. Tristan our server was very knowledgeable and extremely nice. Dave tested us to some Canadian whiskey to sample. Food was amazing. Fresh and seasonal, just as advertised. Definitely would go back.

We chose the tasting menu for a New Year’s Eve dinner with friends. The food was good but hard to justify the price tag of $864 including wine pairings for 4 ppl (not including tip). Decor was minimalist and the wind from outside during the deep freeze was blowing in the front door onto our table. I would recommend this spot for a special occasion but be prepared to pay a hefty bill.

Fantastic service - we split our entrees, and the server had the kitchen course it out like a tasting menu. Delightful staff and top notch food. Awesome experience.
