My guest and I were seated immediately and presented with menus. After awhile we were served with water. Given that we were uber hungry it took a considerably long time (over 10mins) for a server to get to our table to take our orders. Yet, majority of the tables in the dining area were empty. 😑
Thank goodness the food, drinks and ambiance were good.

This place is beautiful! The ambiance is just lovely! I happened to book my reservation on a Thursday night where there was a live jazz band and they were amazing! Definitely can’t wait to come back and bring others with me!

Place was strange, not your typical restaurant. They set us at a coffee table with low sitting chairs. The environment was way too stuffy. Felt the restaurant was to Pretentious. The overall Decour felt like a Gentlemans club. My client felt way to uncomfortable so we left only having a drink.

Place is very nicely done, food was good, ambiance nice. wasn't too crowded on a Saturday night but may have been the bad weather. I Would definitely go back. only problem is the couch seating and coffee table height tables make it a little tricky and uncomfortable to eat. I recommend finger foods only..

Love everything about this place but 1 thing....i dont like the fact that getting a bowl of snapping beans is like pulling teeth. Always an excuse. Saturdays excuse was they didnt have anymore. The week before was they cant bring more than 1 bowl. Let's see next week. I spend a significant amount of money on food and beverages, a bowl or 2 of beans should be a no brainer. Keeps us thirsty. Wink!

A haven on St. George's Avenue with a large selection of top shelf scotch and bourbon and a menu to compliment the many flavors available. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. Comfortable seating and arrangement with a noir jazz lounge feel. A relaxed environment warrants a visit for anyone looking to enjoy an evening out.

There used to be jazz on Friday nights which was the main reason for going but they recently took it away so was disappointed. The food is very good so I will go again just not as often.

We wanted to try this place for a while now. The ambiance is great. Very nice lounge! It’s more of a lounge than a restaurant. I don’t think I can sit in lounge chairs and have dinner. But excellent for finger food. However for us vegans there were no option of food. We ended up having French fries. We of course sampled a few different whiskey but was hungry and had to leave. More vegan appetizer need to be on the menu with so many people changing the way they eat. Overall great place for drinks!!!

My first time here on a first date and it did not disappoint. They were very accommodating and courteous as I had to delay my reservation on sort of late notice. Beautiful, romantic atmosphere and everything was delicious. This place made me look way more romantic than I could have mustered up myself. Highly recommend.

My husband and I were exited to try this venue after reading so many good review. The service, venue and drinks were 5 star but the food left a lot to be desired. We order 4 items from the tapas menu and the only thing we really enjoyed was the riosotto balls. The lobster Mac and cheese was fishy, the truffle fries were insanely over seasoned and the duck empanadas sauce was completely bland. Go for drinks but don’t waste your money on the food.

The ambiance here is amazing. Gives off old school speak easy vibes. However the food was awful. After arriving at 10:30 they didn’t have 3 of the items on the tapas menu. The one item the had, lollipop chicken was awful. Eat before you go.

Food was great. Service terrible, took very long to get our food and drinks. My friend had been there before and warned me, but thought maybe it was because she had a large group. We only had 4 people and it was a bad experience. The ambiance is bad, too, not a good “vibe”. Boring, considering there are no tables just couches and chairs it should have been more lively and music should have been louder. We were yawning because of how boring it was and how long we were there for. It’s a shame because it’s a nice spot with amazing food and cocktails. But if you want to go out for a fun night, don’t come here.
