Overall this restaurant was mediocre. While it was a nice atmosphere and a good ambience, I found the food to be less than desirable. We brought out of town guests and it was a bit embarrassing to say the least. The calamari was awful and looked like it was from a freezer bag, the pasta was mediocre and the desert platter seemed a bit stale. Overall we were not impressed snd will not return.

My husband and I ordered two different pizzas and both were excellent. I would like the addition of fresh herbs to enhance the flavor but that was not offered on my pizza. The service was great and the noise level moderate since we were seated away from the front of the restaurant.

Just because we are not familiar with the flavors of Spanish foods...
Pork belly chops were unfamiliar and calamari dish was also not as what I expected it to be like Greek

Our host sat us at a table by the bar when I had asked for a quiet table and a booth. We then asked for a booth, but she couldn’t seat us there because of covid restrictions, not her fault, but the tables are very poorly laid out to be covid safe. She ended up sitting us at a four person table which just had a plastic divider between ourselves and another table, which isn’t actually that covid safe. Servers also continuously walked by our table, also not covid safe. We were not served for 15 minutes after we were seated. My mum had asked which wine would be closest to a cab sav and the server did not know. The wine she got tasted like vinegar, the server offered two other options. Both of which were terrible. I asked the server which pasta’s were vegetarian; she didn’t know. The pizza I ended up getting had no taste of truffle and was mediocre. My mum ordered the vegetable pasta which was bland tasting. All in all, we will not be returning, the hostess was incredibly pretentious and should have told the server when we sat down that we were ready to order. The server was kind but seemed inexperienced.

Gorgeous space, very sweet and caring server but inexperienced, food was mediocre at best and instead of one plate at a time came out at weird times. Pastas were cold. Was hoping for better quality food overall.

Beautiful decor and venue, which is why I booked a reservation for a nice evening with my wife. The food was good too. To be honest, the entire experience would have been fine, however our server was simply rude and pretentious, and extremely unhelpful and uncatering, and seem genuinely and obviously disinterested in his work - at least pertaining to our table. Which was so unfortunate, especially since all the other staff that checked us in, that showed us to our table, that brought out our food were so nice and so friendly. However our server's behaviour would have completely ruined the evening had this been our main event that night. We were trying out the restaurant for the first and definitely the last time. The service from the one individual was so crass, we truly wondered if it could have been intentional, to specifically deter us from ever coming back, as it seemed there was a double standard of service to other tables.

Golden Rule: Just be nice. That makes all the difference. Rudeness, while some establishments somehow still value it as some convoluted criteria of "upscale" dining, will always be the wrong approach.

Definitely not worth the hype. They refuse to comply to any dietary restrictions. The rule is, order only if you're ok with all ingredients as listed - no exceptions. If flavours are what they were aiming for, they clearly missed it.

The food selection wasn’t the best. My friend and I are vegetarian and it was hard to choose our mains. The pasta selection was weak. The atmosphere was nice. Wish we sat in the main room though. Ah well.

The place is lovely. However, the service doesn't live up to the expectations: slow service and lack of communication on the part of the server charr the overall experience. The brunch we booked was supposed to have bottomless Mimosas, but that was scrapped without any information. While booking, we weren't informed of the time limit. The food overall was great, but the desert was abysmal and lacked flavour. The online brunch menu did not have pictures of food next to the item, making it difficult to guess and order.

I must say I’ve been here a few times now and have been served by Dave twice and he is outstanding. Truly the best server and always elevates our experience. Goes above and beyond every time. I hope everyone gets the chance to be served by him and the food speaks for itself, so so amazing! Best spot on King West.
