    Great atmosphere! The server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding. As a suggestion we would have prefered that the food been serve at a slower pace so we could enjoy the experience of each course. We were at the restaurant for 1.5 hours. We felt rush, we would have like to enjoyed the 2+hours. Overall we were pleased and we will sure be back.

    The food was really good. Cost was a bit high for portion sizes but flavours made up for it. Only negative comment about food was that the Halibut was slightly over cooked. Service was good.

    Been many times , the two steaks we had were not even close to the tenderness of the last 4 times . And the trout was not fresh and dry . And we got a coffee cup with lip stick on it , gross. So not a great meal and may not be back .

    The food is usually amazing here but I think I got a dish I didn't vibe with. The shrimp and calamari pasta was so lemony? Also I really don't like raisins so my bad there. But I love the other dishes here and usually love all their food.

    The server was great and the ambiance was very cool but I’m not sure what all the hype is about on other reviews with the food. The sparkling water was flat, and two out of 4 dishes weren’t good. The beef carpaccio was disappointing - not as tender as it should be and they drowned it in broth/sauce. The salmon’s maple syrup sauce was excessively sweet, and it was on everything. It was on the salmon, the creamed kale and the mashed potatoes. Everything was sickly sweet so I couldn’t finish the meal, it all tasted the same. Maybe put it on the side so people can use what they want to or use much much less sauce. Good points: The eggplant appetizer was very good and the halibut was tasty. The only problem was that the creamy sauce for the halibut wasn’t listed on the menu so my husband suffered later with his lactose intolerance. He wouldn’t have ordered it if he knew there was cream or milk. Overall I would not be excited to eat here again.
