It’s tough to make clients feel truly special, but what they did for my mothers birthday honestly touched me. They made such an effort to make her feel special from giving her roses, a signed card from every member of the staff, dessert with a candle, champagne...what a wonderful way to treat people.

One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had! The staff were phenomenal! Friendly and helpful. The added touches for celebrating a birthday made the evening even more special. The food was unique and very flavourful. The valet parking is an added touch that really made our night. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Received fantastic service from Luca! He was pleasant and jovial, his recommendation that I asked for was 100% bang on!
We had a great time and would certainly return again. The food was great also as well as the atmosphere.

Disappointed in seating for 2 with a
Post behinds seat & servers bumping into chair & carrying trays over my head while I am eating.
Also view was the back of high of seat. I would only recommend people to request a seat with booth by window.

over riding sense around us the entire time was that we need to order , eat, and leave ; so the table can be used by next customers in line .

Serving staff seemed to be under pressure and non wait senior staff did persistent rounds of all the tables in a very obvious fashion , as if to say , " don't let us see you getting too comfortable "

very uncomfortable for us during our meal

The prices were high for what you received. We ordered mussels to start and they were small and stringy. Some were so stringy that you couldn't get them off the shell. The Five Fishermen used to have great mussels. The dessert selection was very poor and I love dessert but didn't have one. We had one starter between us, an entre each and wine and the check was over 150.00

The food and service was extraordinary, however the volume an choice of music on the sound system was a problem for me. It was pop music and it was quite loud. I could not have a quite conversation with my wife at our table.

I recommend piano music for dining.

Cheers,

I grew up in Halifax with the old Five Fishermen.
You cannot compare the two. Experience was a lot better!
We had Wood Fire grilled Arctic Char with two different sauces. The chimichurri was the best I ever had. pineapple salsa was good too.
We had grilled cauliflower appetizer that was out of this world GOOD!
Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I wanted to try different dishes; which is what we did by ordering shark, swordfish and char. I didnt really care for them; but at least I tried it. I found the mussels and scallops couldve been cooked more for my liking, and there was alot of pepper on my food; which I wasnt too fussy about. I dont know if I would try it again; but at least I can say I have one thing off my bucket list. The experience was great, and the service was absolutely enjoyable, and the atmosphere was pleasant. If I do go again, I'll stick to food that I am familiar with, and really enjoy. Thank you very much
