Went for happy hour appetizers and drinks. Half price selected appetizers and half price selected bottles of wine! Ordered quite a few appetizers including the charcuterie board, which was amazing! Definitely recommend the spinach, pear and goat cheese salad. Will be back!

Best brunch I’ve ever had! The braised beef was so tender and flavourful. The mini muffins and scones and such a nice addition to the table. Our server was fantastic and went above and beyond at a simple request we had for a dip for our fries. Nice and quiet atmosphere.

Happy to be out for Brunch to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The setting was lovely with just the right volume of background music. Service was attentive and responsive. Each of us tried different dishes and everything was delicious. The bread basket was a lovely accompaniment with fresh scones and muffins. Mimosas always make lunch a special event.

We enjoyed our lunch - two suggestions: The hamburger would be better with one paddy only and the lobster roll could have had a bit more lobster and mayonnaise. Creme Brulee was delicious as was the cider!

Went for our anniversary and had a lovely time. Location was great, view was great, service was great, food was very large portions. Would give it 5 stars but the steak wasn’t cooked enough and my plate was a lot of heavy components but that could of been just a bad pick . Appetizer and wine was excellent though. Will go back

Great service, great food, and a nice quiet environment so we really could catch up, without others overhearing is, or is overhearing others.

They’ve done a really good job at spacing out tables, and putting in place protocol that made us feel very safe.

We’ll definitely be back.

The server was super attentive yet subtle with interrupting. She was knowledgeable and professional!
