The food was Fantastic and staff were super friendly.
The only thing we noticed is they seated everyone close together when there was ample space to have us further apart. It got too loud at one point because everyone was grouped in back to back booths.
If that’s the only concern we found, then this restaurant is outstanding!
We will definitely return.

Great Caesar cocktails & appetizers my party ordered were really good. Only one of four of us said their meal was “just OK”. Service was average and it was nice to get out with friends so we didn’t mind the noise level too much. It was very busy, so good thing we made a reservation.

I had booked a booth for 4 people 2 weeks in advanced to have a nice dinner with friends for the evening and we were placed in a booth in the bar not dining room. We were told that's all they had left.
I was very disappointed as I had booked way in advance.

Drinks were good, although my ginger pomegranate margarita didn’t have any ginger in it. We shared an average tasting spinach dip as an appetizer. I had the disappointing fish tacos, very bland. My husband had the ribs (served with a rock hard inedible bun and no butter). He enjoyed the ribs but very heavy in the liquid smoke. I would recommend sitting in the lounge for some atmosphere as the booth walls are really tall so you don’t get a view of the restaurant. I would actually recommend a different restaurant all together.

This restaurant is the perfect place for dinner with a wide variety of goods on the menu. Our steak was great and the sides outstanding. Service was outstanding as well. Really nice ambience and the perfect size so that’s it’s not too loud. It’s very clean, TV’s at every angle. Would highly recommend it.

Service was horrible.

I asked for Aioli 3x. Came back and asked me what kind I wanted and still never got it.

My daughter was dressed in her Halloween costume. Full makeup and tiara and not one server acknowledged it. She’s 6. Just a “great costume” would have been nice from someone.

I was there the Tuesday before for lunch and the server in the bar did not come back once and was rushing to clear our appie plates. So annoying.

Food was not enjoyable. No dipping sauce for the hot wings.
I got the Santa Fe salad. Completely forgot the corn and black beans.

Too bad, the menu is inviting. But it doesn’t live up to the hype.

This restaurant has the ‘sweet spot’! We can go for an upscale dinner if we feel like dressing up, or go for a casual dinner if we don’t feel like cooking. It has a quality drink and food menu that’s inspired and fresh, but not too upscale that it costs an arm and leg, and it has the mains to keep my kids happy, like the chicken tenders meal. I’d recommend going for appies and drinks and sharing plates. (My favs: lettuce wraps, perogy flatbread, gnocchi bowl, chicken wings, and of course, the nachos. Also be sure to try the citrus blossom white sangria and the Canadian maple -yummy!)

My steak was great, however Wanda's was disgusting. We didn't return it as we should have, but your staff was very busy, so she just soldiered on, able to eat only very little. It was half the thickness of mine, and almost all gristle.
We really should have returned it and suggested the chef eat it!!

Hi Glen, we are truly sorry we let you down regarding your steak as our steak is Certified Angus Beef.

First time here, really enjoyed our visit. Staff were attentive and verified our vaccination status by scanning and checking ID. Service was great, food great. It's a big place so lots going on but the barriers do block the sound a bit. We were on the restaurant side rather than the lounge, which seems a bit louder. We will definitely be back.

Food was yummy and server friendly, but there is a lack of “checking back” with tables in a timely fashion. Food arrives, but if there is any kind of issue, you are stuck waiting for someone to pop by. Though I totally understand how difficult it is with lack of staff, etc, restaurants need to implement strategies to improve these challenges. I would not have mentioned this, however, I have been to the restaurant several times and had the same problem. If they could resolve this, I would rate the restaurant a 5 out of 5. Also, special occasions should be recognized. It costs the restaurant little, but garners lots of goodwill with the clientele.

Meal was excellent - very good/decent portions.
Very expensive for a glass of house wine ($12 for a 9 ounce glass?) Price shouldn’t be more than $1 per ounce, especially for house wine.
Music was too loud for a restaurant, perfect for a lounge but too loud for a restaurant.
Thumbs up to the staff! Very friendly, very professional!
