2nd date. Date ok. Too far from Windsor. She lives in Toronto. We both drove. Met st Epicurean. Food was good and on time. Well presented and served. Coffee was not nearly hot enough.
Our 1st time there. My second time in NOTL. She was there and Niagara Falls many times as a preteen.
Take-home remainder of main course was great next day.
We were to have dinner. But since lunch still being served, we chose the lunch. Thank you for being so flexible. and patron friendly. James and Gregg were great servers!
Would come again if opportunity arises. Best to you!
Bill Gallagher and Julie.

The crew handled the placement of guests perfectly with lot of care. They went extra mile to prepare a mussels dish, even though it was on on the menu, just because I mentioned it was my son's birthday and he love mussels.

Food quality and quantity was great. over all, we felt taken care.

Excellent overall experience especially during COVID

We were all alone in the restaurant.
Great dinner service by server Shiraz. Very friendly and attentive.

Pasta delicious. Carbonara and sundried Chicken pesto great.
Calamari delicious as a starter.

Nice wine. Window seat. Nothing but a few skunks walking by outside. A quiet Thursday night in NOTL.
Will be back.

When we got to the restaurant, even though we had reservations, they had to accomodate some walk ins so at first we were assigned table right by the door. I asked for another spot. Service by Natasha was great. My daughter had the salmon and loved it. I had the chicken pasta - pasta & sauce was delicious but the chicken had no flavour and felt over-cooked. Dessert was great - chocolate lava cake and peach creme brulee.

The Atlantic salmon with buttered vegetables and light dill sauce was cooked fruit to perfection. Unfortunately it was served with cumin rice, not for my personal preference, which was easily substituted for herbed mashed potatoes. Knowing that a bottle of wine could be bought locally anywhere from $16.95 to $28, bottles that went for $55 minimum were a little steep.

The food was average at best with the pasta sauce being way to much drowning the pasta. The pricing is typical for NOTL... a little on the high side.

Absolutely amazing. From the staff, to the manager to the food. Everything was amazing. I had the stuffed chicken and my girlfriend had the pesto sundried tomato

For those interested they have an extensive wine list that is very reasonably priced!

Shoutout to Shiraz for being awesome!!
