I ate the duck and every bite was delicious! Server was professional and friendly. Not too in your face but there when needed. My friends also really enjoyed their meals. One of the chefs welcomed us as we walked by the kitchen. Was really nice. Would highly recommend this restaurant. We had theatre after and the server ensured we were out on time.

There were 4 of us. We ordered dinner right away as we had theatre tickets. Our dinners arrived 45 min later. Other tables arrived after us were served before we were. When our did arrive it was luke warm and Under cooked. That left us with 15 minutes to eat our dinner. To top it all they charged us $20.00 over the list price of the wine menu and when this was pointed out to our waiter , he “fixed “ it with no apology. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE WERE NOT IMPRESSED AND WILL NOT BE BACK

The appetizer scallops were delicious, as was our ribbon pasta course. My fiancé had the veal scallopini and he felt it had too much cheese - couldn’t taste the veal (which was really tender and juicy) as much as he wanted. I had the stuffed chicken entrée, which was good, but because it was wrapped in a lot of prosciutto it was saltier than I would have liked. But it was still just a really great meal overall.

Thi allowed us to try a few more items without a hefty bill or feeling way too full. The tables are a little close together for my liking as I could easily listen to other people's conversations. The staff were pleasant.

The atmosphere was elevated enough that it made for a nice night out, but the service was very warm and welcoming. Food was excellent and, given the price of food products now, competitively priced. This is an excellent place for a nice celebratory night out.

We never got the gift card that was mailed out to my bro-in-law who purchased it so Miles, manager of the restaurant, went out of his way to get us a new one so we could keep our reservations. Ambiance-wise, my partner and I don’t normally do fine dining so it felt a little awkward for us. The space was a bit tight and felt standoffish rather than intimate. The food was disappointing for the price that you pay. It was bland. Staff was friendly though.

First thing he asked was if we were attending an event to make sure we’d have time. We had 2 hours so we’re okay. We ordered 4 appetizers to share: charcuterie board which was good but a bit uninspired; a seafood medley which was really good but we could not find any anchovies; very tasty sushi with wicked wasabi; and scallops for which our wonderful increased from 3 to 4 so we each got one. 2 friends ordered wine and our attentive waiter made sure their glasses were full. Me and my sister had cocktails and he made sure we did not get thirsty. At the end, our waiter efficiently divided the bill between us 4. He really did make our night. Sure wish I remembered his name but we were there at 6 on March 26th and seated in the meeting room area. Be great if he knew our appreciation. I highly recommend this restaurant for theatre goers!

First off they sat me and my wife between 2 6-tops, very hard to have any conversation when 2 large groups of people are yelling across their tables. The wait time to receive our order was absolutely ridiculous, over an hour and a half with no updates and a waitress who disappeared for almost the entire time. We had to ask a different waitress for an update, that waitress ended up bringing us our food and apologized to us. We watched table after table be seated and receive their food before us. After receiving our food our waitress apologized with no explanation and once again disappeared, no refill on drinks and no regard for us as guests. Terrible experience would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, ever.

Exceptional food, from a delicious olive oil basted sashimi style tuna appetizers to the always delicious home made pasta and then profiteroles for dessert. Great choices of wine by the glass, nicely suggested by our server and reasonably priced. Love the ambiance at the high top tables alongside the bar and the kitchen. Watching the action in the kitchen is great fun.

The pan seared calamari was prepared with spice and in a light broth. Not what was expected but delicious. One can never go wrong with the caprese salad and although I have had better tasting tomatoes, it was still delicious. The Mediterranean bass special, which was served over arugula and mushrooms, was perfectly cooked, juicy and flavourful. All food portions are generous - which is appreciated when dining out. Wine selection and scotch selection were plentiful. A must to visit.
