    Delightful French ambience-strolling violinist -a nice touch. Do not know whether this an everyday occurrence or just for July 14. The menu is very pleasing with a nice selection of standard French fare.

    I brought out of town friends to dinner here, because I've been several times and loved it. My friends raved about this restaurant. They loved the ambience and our server. I think her name was Kai. She was OUTSTANDING! She was friendly, full of personality, and walked us through the menu. She's a gem. The soundtrack in the restaurant was fantastic. My friends asked about the playlist and wanted to buy it. Then the food!! EXCELLENT. My friends enjoyed their cocktails, appetizers and entrees. My one friend said the lamb chops were the best he's ever had. The shrimp in whiskey cream sauce didn't disappoint. We ordered a few desserts too. It was marvelous from start to finish!! I recommend 1799 Prime all the time on my Facebook foodie group. It's fabulous. I think this time was my favorite!

    We went for Saturday brunch. The menu was diverse and tasty. We also ordered the mimosa special where you order a bottle of bubbly and get 4 juices to experiment with. Our server was fantastic, as was the other staff we encountered. I wish I hadn’t subbed bacon for salmon in the eggs bennie. It just didn’t work well because their delicious bacon is too thick for the dish. That was my bad.

    A friend had told me that Landini Bros was overpriced and the food mediocre. I didn’t find the pricing outlandish for the 100 block of King in full tourist season, and the food was anything but mediocre. Perhaps it would have been had we ordered off the menu, but our waiter listed the equivalent of an entire second menu of specials. These are probably the chef’s forte and make use of seasonal ingredients. My only complaint was that, when asked if we wanted bar seating and saying no, we were seated in the bar anyway. Perhaps it was a misunderstanding, but my guess is that dining at 6:00, they didn’t want us taking up a table that might cut into the later crowd. Next time I’ll insist on the dining room as the bar was too loud. Otherwise a great experience.

    Fabulous Italian Food, but skip the garlic bread. It's noisy, but it's worth talking loud to partake in the delicious food.
