    It was my birthday and I booked it for 9:30 PM, but switched it to 8:15 PM, there was no issue and everything went smooth. That whole session was 90 minutes but we got half hour more stay and enjoyed with excellent service and considerate staff who thought about the occasion and made the experience worthwhile.

    The setting was beautiful, with intimate tastefully Halloween / fall decorated domes and courtyard. The dome was beautifully furnished and heated, the service had a perfect balance of attentive and non-intrusiveness to maintain the intimate setting. Food was excellent, a Halloween themed menu, consisting of a holiday cocktail, main and dessert. The setting was quiet and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this as a date outing!

    Food was complete garbage, it’s like they forgot what salt and pepper was. Calamari was like rubber. Mahi tacos had 99% coleslaw and 1% fish. Best part was the autumn fashion drink and the mango salad that came with the black tiger shrimp. Paid $65 per person for a $40 menu choice. Absolutely terrible terrible food. Service was phenomenal and the concept of the bubble was really cute

    The domes were not as expected or decorated. There wasn't adequate heating inside. It's not luxurious enough to spend $60 on a set menu with no main. Service was the worst; took forever to get 3 drinks or water and had to walk to the counter to wait for the server to come out to ask for the bill. Poor experience. I don't recommend. The owner/man who answers the phone is amazing with scheduling and accommodating; I just wish it carried onto the rest of the staff.

    The place was nice and up-scale but had very limited cocktail and food options. I literally paid 30CAD for 6 pieces of ravioli, which did not seem justified. However they had a wide selection of wines. I would not recommend for a girls or friends night out for there are better options available, however it maybe good for business meetings.

    I was a little disappointed about the service. It was very slow, I think they might have been short staffed . Also the bar tender was not experienced. I ordered grey goose dirty martini. I got a gin martini. She tried making me a new one with Grey goose but not dirty. I think with the right staff it could be a good place to hang out on a Thursday night. Herbert our wait staff tried very hard . On a positive note, Mahi tacos and chicken satay were really good.
