Family Birthday dinner. Still felt celebratory and fun but very safe. Food was delicious as always. Managed to make it for happy hour so food and drinks were great value.

Three of us had burgers with bacon added and they were tiny and flavourless. Thankfully we added the bacon for some sort of flavour and substance. It was like a burger you would get at a child’s birthday party. For $20 each we were all very unimpressed. This is not the first horrible thing I’ve had here. I will say their Brussels sprouts are very good tho.

I was there celebrating my birthday. It worked out very well because my sister-in-law was at the round table across and we were still able to feel connected even though we weren’t in the same bubble. It was awesome.

Food was ok, nothing spectacular to get me excited to go back. Had the smallest lobster tail I have ever seen, cooked well though. Service was terrible, forgot to put in our happy order to no drink refills. Not impressed

The chef’s taste plate that showed up (a salmon pate in cracker) is a very nice touch, and was delicious. Service was, as always is, great. The flavours of the food are incredible and portions are perfect. Extreme happy to see Burrowing Owl Merlot available by the glass :-)
Very impressive JRG! Keep up the top tier service.

The entire experience was memorable. Went for happy hour and the location wasn't too busy. I love that they have mostly booths. The food was impeccable. I loved that they brought out sample food for us to try. The chick pea fries were delicious and not something I would have thought to order on my own.

The food and service was great.
The noise was okay too. It was just when we entered there were so many empty tables and they were going to put us in the corner by the bathroom.
Ridiculous and we said no. So they changed us. There waitresses shoukd know better!

We went for my wife’s birthday, server did not ask if it was a special occasion which might be a question that could be asked. Food was very good, atmosphere was good, and service was good and attentive.

Amazing evening! Protocols were followed very efficiently! Food was absolutely delish! You have to try the Roasted Brussels. And ended with the homemade ice cream at the table. Was sooo good!
Service was great! Our server Jordyn was an absolute joy!
This was our first time there & we will definitely go back! Make sure you register when you go into the menu, you will get a registration G/C for $25 off. Got it sent in an email to me within a few hours. Looking forward to using it! Enjoy when you visit! 😷😋

The Harvest chicken keeps me coming back again and again. The cocktails are delicious and the new chickpea fries are so good. They brought a complimentary sample of them to our table to start. The Mac and cheese sticks are our favourites too. Yum!!
