A large group went for a special occasion. Not disappointed. Great starters, tried almost all on the menu. and service was perfect. Main dishes were up to the same scale as the starters. Have to bring mine home as I had over done the starters.

We weren't sure what to expect but everything from impeccable service to beautifully presented & tasty food made this a great experience. My husband had the duck & I had the brick half chicken(huge & where were the other 3 people needed to help me eat it?) Dessert of strawberries with sorbet & meringue hit the spot. We just can't...

This is my second time in the last 6 years that I dined at this gem. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my experience...from my being seated, to the informed, quick and non-intrusive service...to the perfectly done cocktails..,.great wine list. And the food...most was exceptional. I will definitely be back!

we heard about this restaurant and decided to try it for dinner. Reservations for the next night were established and we present ourselves at the reservation time. Greeted warmly by name at the front door, we were quickly escorted to our table. The restaurant was alive with patrons. Our wait staff was quick, efficient and friendly. Food was delivered, the...

We enjoyed a great meal here! The crabcakes were so good! For entree we ate a good ravioli, and a pasta with fresh and sundried tomatoes with lots of flavour. The service was great too. Would love to come back. Higher price, but worth it

I was at a weekend conference last year and ended up eating here every single night for dinner! Outstanding selections. We would order several small plates so we could have different taste experiences - and loved it all! We asked the waitress to orchestrate the sequence of the orders since she knew the menu items. She did a beautiful job... More

Shhhhh! Don't tell but on Sundays most bottles of wines are half price. A GREAT deal especially with such a phenomenal wine list. And, the food is pretty darn good as well. Oh, and did I mention the service??? Top notch. Many of the servers have been there forever and will give you their honest opinion. I have never once... More

Nice restaurant, we were four and decided to share some of their medium plates and it was a complete success. Best Calamari I have tried in a while, an artichoke heart to die for. Nice dinner ambiance and not too noisy. Perfect evening.
