Catering
Our catering team specializes in on-site canapé creation, as well as private dinners. We bring a team into your house/venue and build all the canapés in front of your guests. We try to stay away from buffet style, preferring to do set menus. We do not do drop offs and pick-up is very limited due to the nature of our cuisine.

We had an amazing time. We were very well taken care of by the staff, we were given wines that complimented all the different meals we were having. Spectacular staff, great food, really great wine and cocktails. Couldn't recommend it more.

Food is top drawer. Service is excellent. While not cheap, everything is exactly as it should be. Wine list is very impressive. The 'som' knows what he is doing.

No matter how busy this location is, the food never disappoints. Staff always try their best no matter how crazy and hectic it might be (valentines day!) been a repeat reservation for us and will continue to.

We expected great food and were not disappointed. What exceeded our expectations was the level of service on Valentine's Day. The service and food were excellent. For a day where restaurants are stretched to the limit, we never felt hurried nor was the service or food compromised. A great restaurant.

Awesome experience, first time. My girlfriend and I went for Valentine’s Day, the service was great and the food was awesome. Would definitely recommend the Filet Mignon.

Just moved to the area and didnt want to drive back to downtown for a fine dinner. after a little research I decide give it a shot. Both my wife and I agreed that food quality, service and value is beyond expectation. especially for the Tuesday chief special menu, it's a decent 3-course menu for the price of an entree. We will definitely go again !

It's a little confusing to find as their sign is quite unobtrusive. The staff were very accommodating & even replaced our wiggly table. This was a Gran & Grandson 10th birthday dinner & the food did not disappoint. One negative was the pork chop special. It had a huge amount of fat & was in places kind of tough. Saying that though I must also admit that the flavour of the meat was very tasty. The gnocchi were the best either of us had ever tasted. All of the prawns in our dishes were cooked perfectly as were all of the vegetables. Kuddos to the pastry chef as both desserts were stellar.

I have been there three or four times. During two separate dinners, they served me nuts even though they clearly understood that I have nut allergies. I have never seen it this bad in any other restaurant. This is why I rated "service" as low, even though everything else including the food quality was good (I am just being as fair as possible).

Last time, they served me mocha cake and despite my wife and I asking them twice, the waitress and one of the cooks were adamant that it has no nuts. Zero. The waitress said "let me ask the chef one more time" and came back with "absolutely no nuts." I bit onto the cake twice, and then one of the chefs walked over and took it away, apologizing for his mistake. The cake did have nuts, and I drove home with restricted breathing. It was a scary and a disappointing end to the night.

My daughter who is definitely a foodie recommended we eat here for our bi weekly lunch date. I was not disappointed. The service was wonderful, the food was creative and flavourful and our selections were spaced out accordingly as to savour each selection. Our server was knowledgeable and delightful with our service. I intend to revisit with my husband for date night in the very near future. Thank you again for a lovely dinning experience.
