The service was terrible even though it was a slow evening for them. Or maybe it was busy depends who's point of view lol. The food was cold when it arrived and the not appetizing at all. Presentation was not thought of either. There are plenty of other restaurants in the area with way better food and atmosphere.

Went here recently with a group of six and had a fabulous dinner and wonderful evening. Loved the ambiance of the restaurant and was very pleased to be able to talk and hear without having to shout despite the restaurant being full. Nice music and comfortable and fun setting. The menu is really eclectic and fun - there are some... More

I went with a couple of friends for dinner and was not disappointed. Young loud crowd and great vibe. Service was very good and they let us chat for a couple of hours without any pressure. Wine list very good. I had the burger which was juicy and delicious. Fries were ordinary but acceptable. My friend had the squash. An... More

We were able to get a table for 3 recently on a Sunday evening. They have a fixed price, 3 course menu, with a different "theme" each week. According to our server, who was excellent, the theme for our dinner was "crazy Italian". Food is served "family style" in bowls, to be shared. We had 3 different starters, 2 mains... More

The restaurant is quite loud, but has a great vibe. The dessert is amazing! And it's great to watch the chefs at work from their open kitchen! One of the coolest places in town.

Was here with a large group and got the opportunity to taste many dishes and was seriously impressed. I was impressed with the seasoning, a comment made by others was too much salt - not my experience ..........The server for our group was really knoweldgeable about the dishes and incredibly friendly and attentive without being overbearing - really great service...

Great food, great atmosphere, the only disappointment was that the famed chicken and waffles was gone, we ordered the new HOT Chicken and Waffles and most of the party found it way too spicy.

Lots of hype but our experience was just okay. They have a unique cocktail list but the ones we tried weren't my favourite. Our server was attentive and knowledgable. The lamb pasta appy was great but the pork main fell short, much too fatty. They did however take it off the bill when I pointed it out so I was... More

Enjoyed having dinner with colleagues. While i found the meals to be on the small end in terms of size, the food was quite good! There was definitely room for dessert. I absolutely. Loved the decor of this place. Recommended!
