We had a group of eight and we had a fantastic time. Everybody loved their dishes. The poutine special was outrageous. Potato leek soup was fantastic. Nobody had anything they didn't like. Great service, we had a really good time.

Had been there before and liked it. Service was not good. Service in an eating establishment is everything next to the food.

We went for lunch during restaurant week. The Mediterranean flatbread was excellent as was the crab cake we shared as a starter. Indoor diners were sufficiently space apart. Service was excellent as usual.

The food could’ve definitely been better for the amount I paid. The salad was small and the crab cakes had little flavor. The only thing good was the “cheese board”. Staff seemed very unprofessional, the sever would leave before we finished talking and some staff didn’t even have masks on.

Only issue was there was not any social distancing in the dining room or bar area. Seemed a bit reckless in a time when numbers at all time high. I know to ask next time.

Went for New Year's Even dinner. Service was slow, but expected due to the date. Food was good but not spectacular. Pricier than other options on the island that were better.

We are there two nights in a row. The first night the food was good. But poor choice in burying the filet in a salty sauce. The salmon appetizer was wonderful but on night two The food lacked consistency in terms of portion and quality. Send scallops back as they tasted pretty odd.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The setting/ambience was calming and beautiful.
The fried green tomatoes were amazing! The mussels were fresh and tasty, the crab cake had very little filler and the osso bucco was tender. My cajun pasta (don't remember the name) was full of flavor.

The food was tasty but unfortunately the server was a bit too short with one of our guests about her incorrect order and she seemed rushed although the restaurant was not busy. This affected our Holiday get together but hoping our next experience will be better.

We were seated right away and the waiter greeted us within 1 minute. He was very knowledgeable about the house specials. We ordered our food and the waiter continued to check on us to make sure we enjoyed our food and made sure we did not anything else. The food was fantastic’ We will definitely be back!

We had hoped to have dinner but lunch was still being served. The food was excellent. Highly recommend the homemade chips for the side if you order a sandwich.
