    We enjoyed our time there, the food was good overall and the service very friendly and helpful. After we ordered, our waiter had to come and tell us that they have run out of soup, which I think is a faux pas, they should have known ahead of time that it was no longer available. Other than that, it was a good time over good food! To compensate, a little dessert would have done the trick!

    Good place and good value! I like it. Music is relatively loud. if you're looking for a place for chatting with friends, this might not be the restaurant.

    The taste of the food was excellent. But we like our food to be hot not warm so that was a little disappointing.

    It took 25 minutes for our dessert to arrive even after the waiter went back twice to find out why it was not delivered to the table. That was annoying but up to that point all was good

    I went out with two friends for a birthday lunch. We had a wonderful meal on the patio. Near the end we discreetly asked the server if she could put a candle in the dessert but she topped that by bringing a dessert on the house with Happy Birthday written with cocoa on the plate. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Took 15 minutes for waitress to come to table after we sat down. Appetizers did not arrive at same time. Some of us were finished ours before others came. Appetizer plates were never taken away and stayed on table the entire meal. Order was wrong. Dinner came and we were not given cutlery. By the time cutlery came the meal was cold and we had to send one plate back to be warmed up. Waitress never noticed that my drink was empty after appetizers and by the time I was able to find her to get another drink my dinner was almost done. That being said the food was very good and the location is excellent. We normally eat here every time we come into Toronto for a concert. I will be rethinking that next time.
