Great service. Location is easy to access on Hertel Ave. The food was great especially considering the gluten free options.

The food isn’t that great. We went for brunch. I got a breakfast burrito that had no flavor in the eggs. The pico de Gallo on the top was very ordinary. It didn’t come with any sides. My husband got french toast that was below ordinary. Extremely overpriced for below average food. Mimosas were fine.

Busy evening but the service was good and the food was tasty. The only issue and it was mentioned previously--the noise level was high. It was tough to carry a conversation for the most part during dinner!

Food was tasty but it took 45 minutes for a burger and chicken sandwich. I don’t think the food was worth the menu prices. Staff was aware of how long food was taking and nothing outside of several apologies was done. Lost opportunity for them to give us a reason to come back and try it again. There are enough restaurants to try that you either need to be perfect, or make it up to us if it’s not.

The food was GREAT but the service was terrible. We were there for over two hours and left immediately after finishing dinner. We waited for a long time for our appetizer and after we finished our appetizer we sat there for almost 45 minutes waiting for our entrees with empty drinks. The waitress was avoiding eye contact with me the entire time. The restaurant was not in any way crowded or super busy. We weren’t in a rush so a simple explanation and a couple rounds of fresh drinks would have kept us more than happy. To end the night off the waitress charged us for the wrong table (60 cent difference) and we had to stand around for 10 more minutes while she figured it out and then had to void both cards and recharge. We had both charges on our cards for the remainder of the weekend until Monday. We had chosen the restaurant and brought friends so I felt very bad about their experience. Unfortunately we won’t be going back even the food was really quite good. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and the rest of the table had the fried chicken sandwich and everyone was pleased. I had the house salad on the side which was lovely!

Found a place to stop off at before the Blue Jays game. I love the idea of a wild game burger but I wasn’t too sure about duck. It was fantastic and the ability to construct it how you wanted is tremendous .
