Our menu is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. With a focus on local and seasonal organic produce, hormone free and free range proteins, the menu has been designed for guests to share plates, in an effort to create a convivial and social dining experience.

Our Wood-Fire Pizzas are a cross between Roma and Neapolitan styles; cooked in a wood-burning M.A.M pizza oven imported from Italy. It yields a crust that is thin but sturdy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavour imparted on the food is exceptional and unique.

Our cocktails are equally thought out as our food. Our bartenders serve up a no-nonsense cocktail program featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients that are all made in house.

It was our second time there for brunch almost a year to the date. We were denied a side order of latkes because they were running out (NOT because they had run out; and it was already after 12). The service was pleasant but slow and not overly committed to asking about bar beverages. Thank The eggs benny was disappointing. The pizza wasn’t cut all the way through and at a crammed booth, that makes for some awkward elbows-out sawing action! A single fried egg came out more then ten minutes after the dish it was supposed to be served with and was severely over done. The cheeseburger was the second last thing to hit the table with no advance notice that it would somehow take longer than fried chicken and waffles. They were clearly in the weeds with a bigger party taking up a lot of time and attention but I’m guessing that size of a group didn’t just walk in off the street.

A little pricey, but reasonable considering the excellent food, ample space and atmosphere. They were able to provide us with 2 high chairs for our toddler and infant; and seemed genuinely willing to help us get seated with them.

great spot to bring your parents or out of town guests - trendy but not over the top trendy (like many other queen west spots)- very comfy seating and warm vibrant ambiance. Sunday is half price wine by the bottle (ya!), and the staff super friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Great atmosphere and service, generous portions and we had a wonderful time. However I found it pricey considering it was just high-quality bar food: burgers, fries, salads, mushroom pasta, pizza, etc.

They packed the place on a Wednesday night, so they are doing something right.

We went to this restaurant for my birthdays. It is also my daughter ‘s favourite restaurant. We shared the steak tartare and the warm mushroom salad. Both were excellent. I had the fish special( I think it was sea brim) and my husband had the pasta dish. Again they were both excellent. We also had deserts, a brownie and and cream brûlée’s for me. It was an excellent meal. We will be back.

Food and service is spectucular. The night we went they didn’t have one of items we ordered on the menu, but the waiter came back and provided a different dish and covered the expense for it because of the inconvenience. The recovery for something small was amazing. Will definitely be going back!

Our server, who did tell us her name but after multiple bottles of wine it fails me, was incredible. Just a genuine, attentive person. Her descriptions of the flavour profiles of my drink and the aguachile were bang on. The manager was equally attentive, genuine and funny. It was crowded from a wedding so the tables were close but they were a good size and we had a great night. Originally asked if we were okay with 2.5 hours to dine, they let us stay well past that, never hovering, always topping up our water and our wine. A super fun night out- can’t wait to go back!!
