    I ordered the duck pasta and the beef spring rolls and unfortunately both items had way too much spice on them. I don't mean they were hot spicy I mean the cumin or whatever was so overpowering I couldn't taste the meal.

    Overall good dining experience. One thing we found was the sourdough and soft cheese appetizer was extremely overpriced for two slices of bread with cottage cheese on top. Otherwise good, freshly made high quality food. Absolutely love that they have pearl Morissette wine as well.

    Such a cute Hamilton Gem. Definitely a popular place, and I can see why. The mocktails were fantastic (thanks Alex!) and the food was delicious and tastes homemade! The place is so cozy and cute, and we had an excellent server who was so welcoming and helped us through the menu (thanks Alex)!

    the restaurant was great, food great, staff kind. However, I didn’t know any of them and they kept calling me friend (at lease 20 times in the course of the evening). I get that you want to be warm and friendly but it seems cliche to call me a friend when I don’t even know them. Still, loved the place and would recommend the restaurant always.

    We loved our meal. It was so much fun sharing all the different plates. The food was delicious and so unique. Our server, Kayla was fabulous! She was friendly, professional and although she was clearly very busy with other tables she was very attentive and had no problem keeping up with our constant orders of food and drinks. It was great sitting on the patio. Such a beautiful evening for November. We will definitely be back again and maybe bring a couple of friends next time! The restaurant is fairly small but set up in a way that everything flows nicely. The bathrooms were updated and very clean!

    We had the tasting menu. The dumplings were delicate and tasty, the chana rolls were delicious. The tuna crudo was a little overwhelmed by it's many toppings and sauces. The fresh cheese was amazing. The lack of wine list was a big disappointment. There were only 3 reds and 3 whites on offer. I was hoping for a glass of a nice full oaky chardonnay for a rare night out but there was none to be had which was disappointing. If you are interested in wines this might not be the place for you. Service was excellent.

    We booked on the recommendation of our family. We had a super table by the windows. Our waitress was so attentive and helpful. Not a big wine list but a lot of other drink options. My spouse opted for the steak with frites and I had the gnocchi with mushrooms and cream sauce. Best this side of Italy! Almond cake with tea for dessert was lovely. Altogether a great experience!

    The venue and ambience are great! The food however is overrated. Many of the dishes are swimming in sauce that overpowers or adds nothing to the main event, eggplant smothered in teriyaki, avocado salad swimming in too much green sauce(?), steak sitting in a cup of onion purée ( steak was either cold or had become cooled by the cold purée) Some items shouldn’t be considered shared plates, chicken burger with fries? Profiteroles were stodgy and straight out of the fridge. Please don’t bring three plates to the table at once in a tasting menu, it’s overwhelming. Service aside from too many plates served at once was good.
