Waitress should not be wearing perfume, in case of people with allergies.
Food was ok , my walleye fish was breaded . It what every Manitoban fisherman cook with at home. I was expecting something more different for high end price. Breaded fish look very cheap but tasty, but also the vegetable with wild rice was very good.
My girlfriend though her pork chops was very good and very filling. I noticed all dinner served was in large portion at all table around us.

The server is very cognizant of getting the patrons to their "shows" whether it be Opera, Ballet or MTC on time. The food was very good and the restaurant was lovely.

Food, staff and ambiance were fabulous. Only issue right now is the road construction and parking, but I knew that and went early. I was able to get parking across the street.

I take clients here 5-6 times per year and this last visit was a disappointment. Specifically the two lamb main courses we ordered. I would say they were both 70/30 fat to meat content. $200 bill for three people ... I am not impressed and after that I don’t intend to revisit.

We sat in the lounge and our server Max was so fantastic. There was a new bartender on who wasn’t doing the ... best? ...
Job, however, he was new so I’ll give him that. He just didn’t know how to make a paralyzer - a little alarming.

Max was so great about quality control of the drinks coming out of the bar and you could see him really caring about what was going out to every customer.

Thanks for going above and beyond.

We love the tourtiere as it is absolutely delicious! My brother-in-law also ordered the Chicken livers and although he said they were alright, he’s had better but they were still good. Service was excellent! We will definitely return.

We had the tortierre and bean cassoulet, as well as, the chicken liver appetizer. All was so very good! Natalie is a delightful server. Great “Smoking Jacket” drinks too :) Our first experience and we will be back!

The whole experience was just ok...which is disappointing as I went out of my way to eat there based on two recommendations. Food was good...not great. Thought the menu selection was extremely limited. Service below par and was very loud even though the restaurant was mostly empty. Would hate to see when it was actually busy. Area isn't great, ambiance ok.

Very pleasant evening, polite staff & delicious food. The heat kept turning on which was very loud but at least it wasn't freezing inside. Enjoyable decor that was simple & non-pretencious.

I would recommend based on previous experiences. The French onion soup, mussels, charcuterie and tourtière are all to love. The ambiance is pleasant. On this occasion we decided to try something we don’t always do. They ran out of the lamb and I had settled for chicken I believe I could have done better on my own. My partner, she got the salmon. It was depressing. Lentils from a can overdone fish and a something of a creme sauce. Again we do better at this on our own.

We had a great meal. Our drinks (wine) were slow in arriving but after that everything was fine. We had an engagement we wanted to attend to and the waitress and staff made sure we were out on time.

There was5 in our group and we had to ask for our food as we had to leave for theatre. Others that arrived after us got food ahead of us. I asked for an item to be removed from dish, they offered a substitute however when dish arrived I got original dish. Server fixed immediately. Red cabbage side had hints of burnt which made it inedible. Food is usually good here, others at table liked their dishes.

I noted on my notes I wanted a window table if possible, we were seated in the middle of the dining room. Server forgot our butter for the bread. No apologies given. Did not tell us about specials. Also our server didn’t tell us items that were missing from the menu before we ordered. The brisket was missing and that was the dish my husband wanted. Our server didn’t take our payment. Another sever had to. Appetizers were good. Main dishes were ok. My hubbies green beans were underdone. We’ve been here many times and the service was particularly only satisfactory today.

My wife and I celebrated out 36th wedding Anniversary so had asked for a quieter table (I did mention what we were celebrating). Within 2 minutes of being seated, were we congratulated with a flute of champagne each and a sincere enjoy the evening by our server! Timing of the various dishes we had was perfect and both my wife and I fully enjoyed our meals, I had Spicy seafood pasta and my wife the fish and hickory sticks. We have been once before, a number of years ago, and the evening didn't stick out in my mind but this evening couldn't have been better!!
Thanks again to management and staff for helping to make our 36th enjoyable.
