    Amazing good and service. I wish they still offered flights as it would be great to try all the different beers before selecting one but that’s a minor issue.

    Food was tasty. Interesting concept. Perhaps more Asian than Norwegian. Flavours were really great. Although they pitched it as shareable, the plates are small and expensive for that kind of experience. $28 for a smorgasbord was rather pricey for the contents of the board.

    Beer is great, food doesn’t work. The chef have been overthinking the dishes. Scallop with cherry juice and quark? It was terrible. Very low value for the price.

    The best dining experience! Superb service (shout out to Lorraine), space, food and drinks. Highly recommended for brunch. They serve up local and fresh ingredients from local farms and their very own roof top farm! Can't wait to return to try the new summer dinner menu, and sign up for a farm tour.

    Vibe is good, hosts/waitresses are very welcoming and friendly. We visited on a nice weather Saturday, patio had a good cover, atmosphere is very nice with street pass right by your table that we enjoyed the vibrant of it. Food was prepared and presented with great taste, just the beer was served not as cold as I expected, well visited on a warm summer day lol. Location is good right in the middle of the two parks that had the Jazz Festival within walking distance from both parks.

    Went for an early dinner before a show - enjoyed all the beers we tried. The seasonal small (and not-so-small) plates full of freshly harvested garden produce were wonderful. Best of all was the service - the relaxed, invested, friendly, and professional staff set the mood for a near-perfect night out. Would happily return.

    Went for lunch. Expected more overall but quality was good. We liked the Sours we tried. They were easy drinking but still seemed to be lacking oomph in the flavour department. Probably won’t go out of our way to return.

    I came for brunch on the weekend and enjoyed our meal. I loved how bright and airy the restaurant felt. We both ordered the Korean fried hash with crispy pork and it was delicious. I also ordered one of their beer cocktail, Sunrise spritz and it was refreshing. Our server was friendly and I appreciated that the service did not feel rushed.
