We went for our anniversary, and it was such a lovely experience. We had the tuna tartar, the mushrooms, the duck, the bread pudding, and the baked Alaskan. We would highly recommend the duck and the mushrooms, although everything we had was delicious:

Slower and less attentive service than previous visits. There may have only been one server at lunch (with some help from hostess and bartender).

The restaurant smelled strongly of a fresh coat of paint. Not pleasant.

We had a great experience, our only regret was that we had another engagement and that we couldn’t take our time. We let our server know when we were ordering that we had another commitment and the kitchen was able to accommodate for us to get out on time. We had 8 share plates among our party of four and enjoyed the variety and depth of each dish.

An amazing cocktail menu, with various no-proof options. Rachelle provided excellent service and great recommendations. A great space for groups.

I will suggest to share the mains as well as the shared plates. :D

I visited the Wednesday Room with a close friend to catch up, we had an incredible time!
From the moment we stepped foot inside we felt a warm, comfortable energy, sexy- moody design, our server was great- outgoing but not too in your face, drinks were delicious . I highly recommend

Lots of well executed dishes with flavours that compliment rather than fight with each other. Relaxed service, with the right amount of attention.

A-mazing!

You will dig the vibes of this place... 70's vibe in the basement with great selection of cocktails and the food was great the one that dish that stands out for us was the savoury bread pudding (it was the show stopper of the night for us!) It was soft, tasty and the flavours on point! The cauliflower was outstanding with its truffle flavour and the crispy capers.

We are going back!

Pretty unique venue. Super affordable and the food is really good. I nice balance between going out for a fancy vs casual meal. You get the ambience of something upbeat and unique but the cost is fair. Food was really delicious.

The restaurant has made some changes - previously when you book a table online you would be sat downstairs and could grab a drink etc upstairs while waiting- now they made it so they sit you either upstairs or down but you have no way of choosing where and the reservation doesn’t tell you where you are sitting.

Honestly the food just wasn’t worth the price - wasn’t happy with any of our appetizers or main dishes. Don’t waste your time getting the beets or the octopus oyster dish as both are bland and not worth it. Really disappointed, we left spending a fair amount on dinner just to go and get food elsewhere as none of the table felt satisfied or happy with their meal. If your going for drinks and the atmosphere then absolutely would recommend but don’t go for your dinner, you can spend the same price somewhere else and get way more food that you will actually enjoy.

They were clearly understaffed as the bartender was waiting tables and didn’t have enough time to do so effectively. The share plates came out all at once with no explanation of what we were eating. It was extremely noisy and the icing on the cake was the pepper spray scent that permeated the room at the end of the evening causing staff and patrons to cough and have runny eyes. Although this was beyond the restaurant’s control, no solution or compensation was offered for this unpleasant experience.

Kitchen was having an off day, but the staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our evening. Food was great. Our table of three each had different mains and we had 4 sharables. So good. The popcorn was a standout. Dessert wasn’t my favourite, and I’m a huge sweet tooth. We got the 3 dessert options- the cinnamon toast crunche was the best and while tasty not anything to rave about. But the mains were out of control, So Good! What was very noticeable was the balance of flavours. Everything needed to be on the plate, all the items stood out apart and were glorious together.

The Wednesday room was a fun place to sit and have a few drinks. The decor and vintage feel were well done and felt genuine except for two things, first was the random "hipster" paintings hanging on the one wall, they made no sense to the vibe the room was going for and were just plain ugly. The second was the music, for a place that is meant to feel like a 60's style lounge the choice of music was awful, it was like music you would hear in a dark crowded night club, if they had played some music from the era the decor was going for it would have made for a much better experience. Also the noise level from other tables was quite high and the proximity of the tables was to tight, I felt like I had to talk over the tables on either side of us. Overall the place was good though and I will return again in the future. Hopefully some of the short comings will be addressed by then.

We booked our reservation in advance so that we could make it on time to our 8pm concert. We showed up at 6pm, ordered a drink, and then ordered our meals and an appy. It did not seem very busy in the restaurant but I do realize there’s a basement.

The appetizers came out well after an hour of sitting there. At that time we realized it was taking a long time and we sort of had to hurry! We made a comment to the server about the slow turnaround and she said sorry the kitchen is understaffed. The food came out 90 mins after our reservation time. We asked for our bills and to pay 3 times. We also had to ask to speak to the manager twice. They promo’d our food 25% but really didn’t feel they cared and each person blamed the slow service on each other.

Not in a rush to go back.
