We had delicious cocktails to start our meal and good advice about wine and food choices. Food was from good to excellent, depending on the dish, although some what small portions for the price. Surprisingly for a meat-based restaurant, I thought the sesame green beans were superb, and the brussel sprouts ceasar a knockout. The bison steak with fois gras was delicious. We also had pork belly with scallops, my least favourite dish - the pork belly was more like pork hock, smoky and chewy rather than melty. Service was competent and friendly but a bit rushed. I would have liked to linger, but food came very quickly , dishes were whisked away instantly, and suddenly we were out of there. All in all we had a good time and good food and drink. I would go back.

The service was amazing. She was very friendly. The good however wasn't too good. My salad was quite salty I feel that the chef definitely oversalted. My friends dishes were the same. It was nice when my friend asked them to add more hash so it wouldn't be so so salty and they went above and beyond to make a new dish which tasted great after.

Very nice staff, with warmth and knowledge.
I think I was the last reservation of the night at 1030pm. The dining room was still extremely noisy and the noise from the bar downstairs was over the top. Ok, so I'm the oldest person in the entire restaurant and I sound like my parents! Other than the noise volume, a wonderful place.

Fresh ingredients put into interesting combinations. The flavours could be more balanced. My favourite dishes were the elk loin and burrata The service was outstanding.
