My new favourite sangria (white)! Always such a good ambiance, vibe and positive energy from all staff and customers. Pricey, yes but if you look at the menu ahead of time there is no surprise upon arrival.

We were 5 and had the steak frites x2, shrimp pesto pasta, salmon and gnocchi. Overall no complaints on taste - food was delicious. Portions could be a little bigger.

Ran out of oysters so i’ll definitely need to go back!!

Our host was rude and told us we had an hour and a half when she sat us at our table. Didn’t bother saying hello, how are your, have a good meal or anything else.
Menu was different from online so as a vegetarian I had 1 option.
Very disappointed over all.
Dispute all of this, our server was very good.

As others have said maybe go only for drinks because there was nothing good about the food. Oysters had pieces of shell in them, MOLDY cheese on the cheese board - and not the mould you’re supposed to have! Poorest quality steak that was inedible. I hate to say this but go s o m e w h e r e else.

Food was very good. Especially the tuna tartare. But, I would recommend using crusted bread instead of the rice chips, they were too thin and the textures together we’re not the best. Overall great food and amazing drinks. Will definitely come back for more.

One of few upscale restaurants open on Monday evening. Food ok, not great. Would have expected better quality for price. For reference, had the Gnocchi with braised beef, buratta flat bread, fries, cauliflower. Fries were undersalted and little soggy, cauliflower ditto, probably a bit over done. Buratta was probably the best dish we had. Gnocchi was a bit bland and the added braised beef was also not super flavorful. Overall, food was ok but for prices would have expected better. Service was good, standard. Definitely more of a drinks place.

Was a good experience in general but i got the trofie pasta & it was very dry and lacked flavour so i was quite disappointed with that. The white sangria is delicious, aromatherapy cocktail was good & the burrata flatbread was decent. service was good, just wish my main had a lot more flavour

My dining companion enjoyed the calamari. She said it was the best in town. The service was fast and the oysters were clean and fresh. A bit pricey and the music was a bit too loud for my taste. Having all the waitresses in gym gear is an interesting choice. Overall 4 out of 5. It's worth a try.

Our server was sweet but she didn’t have knowledge on which wines were dry or not, which is disappointing considering the pricing of everything. She also kept coming back and asking if we wanted to order but said no rush yet she came back three times. Also the gnocchi was extremely bland. Beautiful ambiance though

These guys are stars in the hospitality business in Ottawa. I usually go somewhere once and then go on the hunt for the next amazing place. This is my first "Go-To" place in almost 10 years.

The food is AMAZING (I'm a picky eater). Best cocktails in the city. The service is amazing, the staff reads you like a book.

I'm a regular now. I KNOW I can depend and rely on a true hospitality experience when I go there.

We were 4 people and half our meals were not good. We sent one back and the other under seasoned. Tasted like frozen squid and frozen fries. For the price it should be fresh.

We were seated on the edge of the covered patio on a rainy night which meant rain splatters on us and our table. Food was not as tasty as I had remembered it last time and seemingly smaller portions. We were able to stay for about 2.5 hours until the waitress rushed us out for another group reservation. Overall an okay experience, would go back for drinks only in the future
