The food was delish and, even more importantly for us, our server made our anniversary dinner a wonderful experience!

We had a show to see at the MeridiN hall and this is directly across the street! Had the empanadas, Smaah burger - excellent and the margherita pizza which they made too well done but was still good. Their signature Mac and cheese was a hit. Great service, attentive and so thankful there is a good place to eat right by theatre!

Experience was okay, they do close early so it felt a bit rushed. Food and service was good over all. Have to say the steak was cooked to perfection. Nice place to grab an early dinner.

Fish tartar was delicious and nice presentation Striploin steak with fries was ok. Expected better arrangement, not fast food style. Desert Chocolate Ganache cake was a disaster - rock solid, didn't even need presentation. It was bad.

Dinner was very good and so was the wine. The patio is beautifully done. Some annoying street noise but that isn't their fault! Found the food quality was great and the menu was varied and reasonable. Service was excellent.
Would recommend.

Food was fine and drinks were fine. Buy a bottle of wine and get oysters at $1 each. 24 at a time. We got 24 and ordered more, but they were suddenly out. At 7:30 on a Sat. Ok sure. Also we specifically waited until after appy to order main so it wouldn't come too quickly. They took our order as they were clearing our appy plates and the main was there in 10 min. If it was busy I'd see why they would want the table turned over, but it was pretty quiet. Overall just minor quibbles. The little things go a long way.

Sat out on the patio and were inundated with fruit flies. In our wine and our food, it made it a challenge to enjoy the meal. The service was very good, not their fault but certainly they could have recommended eating inside to mitigate the bugs.

Staff was very accommodating and did everything to meet our needs. We had 2 toddlers with us and they could not have been more helpful or gracious. It is not a restaurant designed for kids but they made it work…food was excellent.
Thank you

Everything was lovely; aside from having my gender incorrectly assumed and commented on the whole time; and then there the only “accessible washroom” was dirty and had no where to dry your hands . . . It sucks to feel like your existence is a burden. Our server however was lovely as was the food.

My husband had the salmon and the rice was hot in the middle but quite cold around the edges, I think the rice must have been plated while waiting for my pizza. The pizza had way too much crust, but the flavour of the topping were good.

Celebrated my birthday with a small group of close friends. Our server Mark made our experience, he was knowledgeable about the menu and made wonderful recommendations. He was thoughtful and ensured we were well taken care of.

The menu was very poor and also they were very strict with each dish. It needed to come as it was in the menu and if I wanted one ingredient to not be included they said it was not possible as it had already been prepped. The service and the drinks on the other hand were very good. I hope post Covid is better but until then I wouldn’t go back.

Second time we've come for a family birthday dinner...looks like it's becoming a tradition for the reasons that service is friendly efficient & attentive. Food expierence wise, quality & portions are consistently top notch. We'll be back again next year, maybe even sooner. The management at this particular location truly delivers the whole package of how how a restaurant should be. Thank you again for the enjoyable memories.

Service took forever to bring our app out. Very disappointed in the food. We got the charcuterie board to start with and it was a few pieces of cold cuts which was not worth the price at all. Beautiful restaurant but definitely do not recommend or will be back.
