It was pleasant, service and food were great! I had requested a table near the window(Birthday celebration) and we were kind of stuck in corner by big plants. Other than that ,everything was fantastic!

We booked this meal via group on and had a lively 3 course meal at a much reduced price. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

This is definitely NOT a place for quiet conversation. It seems these days the "hip" crowd want noise and not a quiet romantic dinner setting. I guess I'm just too old to "get it". The food was great. The server was very good until it came time for the bill. The bill was VERY confusing as we had the groupon tasting menu special and it didn't make any sense. The server sorted it out to my complete satisfaction but it took far too long to do so. Needs a better computer program!!!!
I'd love to go more often but I'm afraid if they can't turn down the inappropriate background music and ambient noise level it won't be a priority. I can get great food at half the price at a good pub like he Prairie Inn.

Used a Groupon - separate menu - not even a little impressed. Felt cheated. Nothing on the Groupon menu came from the dining menu. Groupon meal was non-descript, soup was stingy & not great, dessert was pathetic tough-crusted tart that came with a tiny spoon that was impossible to cut the crust with. Will never go back.

I wish I were able to give a better review. We dined at the restaurant 2 years ago and had a lovely evening.

4 of us dined at the restaurant using a Groupon and had the chef's menu. I mention this because even with the great value of the Groupon, we left thinking that it might not be worth coming back.

On the plus side, the hostess and our server was very pleasant. Our mains were very tasty. One of us had the soup, and said it was quite good.

On the negative side, the beet and goat cheese salad arrived without the beets. The dining room was busy, so we didn't get a chance to ask our server about this until after we had finished. The bread was bland. And the desserts weren't very flavourful and tasted like they came from outside of the restaurant. And while our server was lovely, she seemed very busy and may have been too quick to clear some of the plates when she did come to the table.

I sent an email to the hotel that evening with the above points and didn't hear back.

We'd love to love this place. We didn't. That's too bad.

UPDATE: I received a very sincere note from the restaurant management thanking me for my email and acknowledging where things could have been better. I appreciate the response and I suppose every place is entitled to an off-evening.

Lovely to spend an evening with family to celebrate life! Server was very personable & the food was excellent. Would only suggest that the carrot & brussel sprouts be cooked a little longer so it doesn't slip when you stick your fork into it. Otherwise, very creative plating, lovely atmosphere, especially beside the fireplace. Intimate enough that you can have a private conversation.
