Great experience, despite COVID restrictions. The staff was very friendly and the food was just perfect : beet salad, eggplant fries, wagyu carpaccio and - oh yes - the roasted duck were all delicious and tasty. The team working in the kitchen looks harmonious and efficient. It shows in the plate. Bravo !! 👏

It was my husband’s bday and we had a gift certificate; normally we wouldn’t be able to afford a fancy meal plus we haven’t had a date in 6 months so we were beyond excited to go to your restaurant. We were seated in the bar section where you can sit on a bench so we sat beside each other. Our server came up and immediately was unbelievably rude to us for sitting next to each other. We didn’t realize if we sat together we wouldn’t be 6ft from the next table and we are happy to move to make sure we were being safe and following rules but his reaction was completely uncalled for. We ordered a drink and while we looked at the menu we observed him being very kind to other tables but when he interacted with us he was short and would walk away before we were done talking. We were looking at the wrong menu (something he didn’t explain to us but we later heard him explain to another table). He was again short with us telling us we were looking at the wrong menu and walked away before we could ask our question. I was so upset that we decided not to stay. We paid for our drinks and left. I feel very sad that we didn’t use our gift certificate and our first date in a long time was cut short for my husband’s bday. I know it isn’t possible but I wish we could just get a refund on the GC. I know that your restaurant has great food and I’m sure your service is normally great but this person’s customer service was awful and because of his bad attitude he unknowingly wrecked our experience, hurt our perception of your restaurant and cost us money when we didn’t even get a date (we had to still pay our babysitter).

I appreciate you taking the time to read about our experience. Your restaurant is beautiful and it had a great ambience. I wish we were treated better to get the full experience.

Cheers,
Raylene

The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish. We tried a lot of the dishes and each one was outstanding! The garlic bread was to die for as was the trout. Not what I’d normally order but it was recommended and was everything and more. Rigatoni was amazing!
If only we had a restaurant like this where I’m from! Will def be back

The octopus salad was to die for!! We also had an awesome server, I think his name is Amit? Not sure. But he was great, very attentive. The table we had was a little too small but besides that everything was great.

Had forgotten how great this restaurant is. Service and food are way above average. My friend & I shared some small plates -- the lamb sausage was our favourite (I will order take away this week!!). The carpaccio is also excellent. Tuna crudo was slightly disappointing... it needs a bit more ooph to contrast the buttermilk dressing and delicate flavour of the tuna. Accompanied by a bottle of sangiovese. Service is excellent. Try and get a table in the upper area if you like to watch the kitchen action.

Really Great Service! Food was terrific. Amazing cocktail selection!!. We were three and tried a wide variety of items which we all shared. Standouts -Grilled Octopus Salad, Lamb Sausage, and eggplant fries. Trout entree was great and was paired with really delicious sides. We all agreed that all three components were great but too rich all together. And the piece de resistance to end the night, The Banana Pie! We will be back!!

Although we had been warned reservations for four people were limited to two hours, it did feel a bit rushed to get through the various dishes and courses we ordered. We would have had a more relaxing and enjoyable time if a clock was not ticking on the experience. However, it is understandable from a reservation perspective to allow for other diners as well, however, this is really the only thing that was not fantastic.

Honestly I haven’t been out to dinner and this was seriously amazing. The cocktail I had lieutenant pepper was one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had!!! The octopus salad was so flavorful and the mains we had chicken and truffle pasta were incredible! I got the banana cream pie because I read so many reviews on it. And seriously was the best dessert I ever had! The lighting was person. And we felt safe with their cleaning protocols. I cannot say better things about this place!

Out of oysters. Rigatoni was very undercooked (inedible). Server also forgot to mention they were out of black truffle. Tonight was definitely a miss unfortunately
