Although it was a peaceful and quiet atmosphere, the food was not great and the cost was higher than average. We met friends at the restaurant and although we didn't order much food, what we did order was not great. The pizza was mostly bread / crust (very little cheese) and the truffle fries did not have enough cheese or truffle added (mostly it was just a plate of fries). The service was superb, our waitress was wonderful. We wanted to give it a try due to a coupon we received for a free appetizer but it's unlikely we will return.

There were 6 of us getting together from our high school days. We ended up shutting down the restaurant and were never felt that we had to leave right away. The last server on was cleaning up and came over to talk to us about our night. Never did she ever tell us we needed to leave. The food was great, the atmosphere was lovely and overall it was a very nice location to meet up with old friends. We will be returning again. Thank you!

Your Alaskan Crab and Prawn Linguine is very nice, but the menu says nothing about cheese on
top.
I always forget to ask for it not to have cheese on top, and feel awkward about returning it.
Could you please put it on the menu ingredients for those of us not having dairy products.
It would help me to remember to tell the cook to omit it.
Thank you.

Thanksgiving was the perfect opportunity to check out signature plates at the Lobby. The Angus beef carpaccio was great starter; the Ahi Tuna tataki was generous portion and had lovely citrus flavour. The rack of lamb was prepared to order “medium” and well seasoned. The pan seared Ling cod served with mussels in tomato coconut broth was surprisingly good. Hazelnut tort was bit overdone but the creme brûlée was one of the best I ever had. The added bonus of live vocalist playing guitar music made for wonderful evening. Attentive and friendly server who knew the menu and made accommodations for food allergies. We already knew they’re great for brunch; we will be back for dinner next time.

Came here for a business lunch, and atmosphere was clean, current and perfectly suited for business. Service was excellent- prompt, friendly, nothing overlooked. Good menu selection including flavourful salads, and value-packed lunch choices. Food was good quality. Only (small) complaint was an overdressed salad that became limp, so if you’re particular, ask in advance your options to avoid that.

We were celebrating a birthday and started with a sparkling wine. The server, at our request, recommended a platter of meats, cheeses, thin baguette slices (toasted), fig jam and carmelized onions. This turned out to be a tasty and filling appetizer, especially the fig jam. We then ordered Angus burgers, which were delicious, quite a change from a fast food offering. Two of us enjoyed a glass or two of Merlot with the main course. We then indulged in the dessert tasting platter - another lovely idea. Everything was yummy and just the right sizes to share among three people.

We were disappointed that the Retro Saturday option was not available.
We really enjoyed that menu option and did not realize that it was only seasonal - winter to spring. We would like to have that option available all year round. As well, we were not told that it was not available any longer when we booked on line; however when we came for dinner just last Sat night June 23rd it was on the menu option but were told by the server that it was no longer an option.

The noise coming from the lounge area made dinner conversation next to impossible. The waitress never poured our wine for us fret the initial pour and didn’t follow proper protocol when pouring of ladies first.

I’ve been going to this restaurant since it opened as a local resident and pick it for special occasions as well as quick bites in the lounge but was very disappointed in the experience this time as we were celebrating a birthday and could barely chat or relax over all the noise.

The food was excellent, but dessert spoiled it all. We paid $9 for something like hazelnut brownie and ice cream, but the hazelnuts were not fresh, so it wasn't edible. I certainly would recommend this restaurant, but maybe skip the dessert.

We were a group of 7 adults and everyone enjoyed there dinners. There was a Sunday night special of prime rib which was a great value at $23.95. Four of us had the prime rib and we were all more than satisfied both taste wise and portion size. The service was very good and we will be returning to this restaurant for dinner, lunch or brunch in the near future.
