    Right from the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be a great experience. Warm welcome from staff at the front door. It's the little details that make a great restaurant, and they were in abundance everywhere. Home made munchies, delicious cocktails served in perfect glasses, artwork on the walls, over the top staff, creative menu, delicious entrees and to top it all off a visit from Chef. Outstanding night out for my wife's birthday.

    Beautiful restaurant..but if your boots are wet be very careful you could easily slip- easily remedied with a tasteful runner. Food was good but pricey for the serving size ie. Greek salad..super small

    Great service, amazing food. A bit pricey, but hard to argue when you take a bite. Definitely be back.

    Located in a changing neighbourhood of Hamilton. Interesting art on the walls provided by local artists. The restaurant was quite noisy. It may have been caused by voices bouncing off the tin ceiling and there were a couple of large groups near us. The service was excellent. The food creative and locally produced. The wontons provided prior to the meal are addictive. For the main course I tried the pork jowel which was delicious. My husband had the lamb shank which he really enjoyed. We will definitely return.
