Our food took a while and although I can appreciate good food even at smaller portions, some dishes were a bit shocking in size.. ;p overall it was a good experience tho!

Good for a date night. Gluten free options. Interesting, upscale dishes in a laid-back environment.

We got fries, hanger steak, pork belly, gnocchi, and duck leg. Everything but the gnocchi was gluten free (if you're okay with fryer contamination). I recommend sharing the fries between more than two people, unless you're very hungry like we were. The sourdough gnocchi was probably my favourite, but the duck leg was surprisingly good too. Pork belly was very good, but the generous serving of beans was more than we were interested in finishing. The hanger steak was a bit disappointing in terms of flavour - at least in comparison to the other dishes. Their cauliflower is very interesting and I'm glad we got side vegetables also.

I'm sensitive to noise but found the noise level pretty reasonable considering the concrete walls and it was a busy Saturday night.

Wine & cocktails were good, and the servers frequently came around to refill our waters. Very friendly and knowledgeable service.

I went with a girlfriend for an 830 reservation and didn’t get seated until 9. We sat at the bar while we waited and bought a few delicious cocktails. Once we were seated we had pretty good service from a few different servers. We took their food recommendations and everything was delicious and well presented.

They made an AMAZING vegan meal for me as I’d put a note on the open table reservation. All of the servers were lovely but there didn’t seem to be anyone specifically in charge of our table and so we had to wave people down a couple of times. I recommend adding the vegan option to the menu as I almost didn’t choose the restaurant because the menu on the website didn’t show anything vegan. Lovely space!

We had the rack of lamb, lingcob and pasta, the meadows duck breast, and their special which was sable fish ceviche. Everything tasted absolutely amazing! It took a little long for them to make our food but it was well worth the wait. I will definitely be coming back!!

Excellent meal, wonderful craft cocktails and very professional staff. We were all very impressed with the quality of our dinners (personally I recommend the roast duck breast). We were there for a friend's birthday dinner. Couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out; we'll all said we'd be back.

Went to Nomad last night for date night with the Fiancé. Service was amazing- server (Megan) provided drink and food recommendations and we were super pleased with her recommendations. Only down fall was pricing - ie think $25 vegetarian pasta. I’ll probably still come back to try another couple of dishes- enjoyed the vibe

Food was adequate but we complained about one entree as it was not prepared properly and the chef offered 1/2 off
Staff were indifferent and unaware of inappropriate actions. Tables are tight so it is hard for staff to move between tables so they need to be aware of how their body movements interfere with patrons next to or behind them. When one of our guests complained about a server literally bending over and into his face - she seemed unconcerned.
No one smiled as we came in and the hostess hardly said hello before she had a set piece on how we had the table for only 2 hours - not welcoming. The server who took our order was polite and fairly efficient but this isn't a cheap quick eatery and indifferent service or just adequate service is annoying.
won't go back as there is too much choice of restaurants around to do that. out of 4 meals we felt one was not worth the money and poorly prepared, two were ok to good but nothing was exceptional in spite of the stated premise of the restaurant.

Birthday with 3 generations worked out well since there was a great selection on the menu and a fun atmosphere! We asked to be moved since a very loud group was seated next to us and one in our party is hearing impaired so the hostess gladly accommodated us early on so the evening went smoothly!

We had one of our best meals of 2018 here. They gave us a really nice table near the Christmas tree. Our server was friendly and made us feel welcome. The polenta was warm and creamy and the sunchoke and wild mushroom stroganoff was delicious. We added a side of fried Brussels sprouts and were glad we did. The non-alcoholic beverages were also spot on. We were too full for dessert. The only minor downsides to the evening were a young child having a loud meltdown further back in the restaurant and being quite close to the next table so we could hear their whole conversation.

I was here on Wednesday night Dec. 19th. Our waitress was excellent, very helpful & courteous. I found the menu very limited & overpriced for what you get. I made a bad choice ordering the Polenta which was like having a bowl of mush for dinner. To be fair perhaps if I had ordered something different I would not have been so disappointed. However I felt the choices were very limited.
