Still a very gracious welcome and prompt, attentive service throughout.

A perfect wild mushroom soup on a mushroom stock base, delicate, woodsy and lightly salted.

Perfect fried baby artichoke, crisp and dry with delicious and delicate aioli -- the same as two years ago.

The salmon was perfectly prepared and served with very fresh julienned vegetables and a large serving of well seasoned rice -- a bit dry and not really necessary given the quality of the vegetables.

A medley of three vegetables: black lentils, roasted carrots and roasted Brussels sprouts -- perfectly prepared.

Very good cleanliness including the men's room.

It's been two years and we will return again.

Its really a shame. This is (was) a neighborhood gem (Ive rated it highly in the past). Good food and great service.
Tonight, the presence of a large cockroach really put a damper on the evening. Frightened the kids to bits! Being from New York, Ive seen my fair share of cockroaches, but not at a place like East End Kitchen
The waiter was apologetic....but the meal was ruined

Waited almost an hour to be served the wrong dish. My wife had to eat her food alone while they corrected things. Had hoped for a relaxing Sunday brunch but we were very disappointed. Food unspectacular even when it finally came.

Wednesday night is mussel night and it was excellent. We were given home-made rolls and olive oil to munch while we perused the menu, replenished while our meal was cooked. The mussels were huge and the broth was great. The french fries were plentiful. I made room for a dessert - the special was a chocolate-chip cookie and ice-cream - but it was almost too much for me. (I had to force myself but it was worth the effort!). A very inviting and unhurried meal, good value and very tasty.

This is a hidden gem thats snuck away in a side street (East End & 81st). The dimmed lighting created a soothing romanic soft atmosphere that was paired with calming classic music. The service were friendly, helpful and informed on the details of the menu. The food was outstanding we had dinner (vegan mushroom and vegetable soup, & Organic Roasted Chicken with smooth potatoes and green beans). The flavours and tastes were beautiful balanced and left a wonderful lingering taste. The whole experience was truly a pleasure.
