Heard so much about this place we had to try it. Nice little restaurant. Made a reservation for 6 and by 7 the place was full on a Tuesday. It was quite noisy on this night which wasn’t a problem just not quiet and intimate. I had the fett chile which was quite good and just enough heat. House red wine was very good. Food and service was excellent with fine dining prices. I would like to try lunch next time.

1st, tons of parking. 2nd, place is filled w seniors in the daytime. 3rd, the decor *could* be amazing. It’s filled w local artists (maybe 3 diff ones) w quasi-relevant art, but could be an amazing space.

Food was excellent. Our server didn’t know about the daily menu and seemed slightly uninterested in us, but overall delicious.

I had the poached salmon salad which was terrific - even though salmon was over cooked. The home dressing and the fact they didn’t shy from capers.. it was delicious. My colleague had the chicken sandwich which he LOVED. The slaw that they have as an alternate to fries is not what you expect - it’s not julienned superstore mix but just really great food. And they bring great bread w better butter than... ever?

I posted the negatives first to save the positives for last. The food was delicious. This was a 2016 too 100 in Canada. And the food is good. We will go back. Our server was absolutely friendly, just most likely very laid back. The wine list is good, but they might now know very much about it during the day.

Wonderful homemade pasta and a real continental palate. Food is reliable and very tasty and wine list is good. They also do Mother's Day Brunch but book ahead.

A large family group 12 of us went for my husbands birthday. From the minute we walked in the door we were all very impressed with everything about the restaurant, from the ambience, the knowledgeable attentive service and the amazingly excellent food.
