    A perfect dining adventure for my friends and I. Top service from a team who really cared and a three course meal that was to die for. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Highly recommend. I can’t wait to go again!

    Brought my husband and mom here for Christmas dinner and would have to say we had a pleasant experience. Our waitress was friendly, very knowledgeable, and checked in very frequently. It’s definitely priced to be a bit more upscale, but each appetizer and gift that came out packed so much flavour and even surprise, so I’d say I felt that it was appropriately priced. I booked this out of curiosity but can say that we’ll be back in the future :)

    The Hokkaido Scallop Motoyaki and the filet with fois gras (itself a revelation) stand out, but every dish is outstanding. This has to be the top restaurant in Vancouver.

    Lunch menu could use a little more variety . Only 1 salad on the menu and both pasta dishes contained mushrooms which are not a personal favorite .

    Terrible experience with this restaurant, horrible food, nobody’s here to provide service, overpriced, fancy looking with tiny portions. Wouldn’t in my life give it a second chance.

    Not the best value in terms of portions. My tenderloin was just a 7oz meat and a couple veggies for 58$. However it was a nice ambiance and successful evening none the less.

    The servers were very concerned when we mentioned there was a member of our party with anaphylaxis to peanuts. They checked with the kitchen and confirmed they are a peanut free restaurant with only a jar of peanut butter. They checked on us during our meal to make sure we were ok and the food was good. Water was refilled quite a few times and the cutlery and plates changed as well. The ambience is outstanding with the chandeliers and the blue backlighting, and the plexiglass panels between tables for social distancing have the most intricately designed metal supports.
