    I made a reservation here and then wasn’t allowed to come and sit to eat. Apparently there was a wedding party scheduled for that same night. The restaurant never attempted to call me and cancel the reservation. What a waste of time.

    We booked this restaurant roof top to honor my brother who passed. When we showed up we were told it was closed for a private event. We were not comped drinks in the Sorak easy bar or anything. Very disappointing. Not sure who was at fault for showing availability in the system but needless to say we won’t be back.

    When we arrived on time, we were told the roof was not open because they were having a private affair so we spent extra camp fair and we’re not able to enjoy the roof. Why didn’t the restaurant contact us when they saw our reservation? Very disappointed.

    When we arrived there was no host anywhere and we stood around thinking someone would acknowledge and seat us, finally when we asked to be seated we were sat at a tiny table that was right next to the bar. Their food menu was extremely limited and not what they have posted here at all, probably 1/4 of the options. We decided to just go somewhere else for dinner but because we walked 10+ blocks to get there, we got two drinks and a bottle of water and it was $60.

    Nice place with an amazing deco. But... the service was really soso even if it was not really busy. We were 4 girls, looking for a nice place to diner. The service was really slow, not really attentive. We only had one drink because the waitress didn't come back to see us and purpose an other one.
