Very Impressed!

We started the evening with some fantastic cocktails, followed up with some great tapas and a shared main designed for two people. The menu was innovative and the food was served hot and fresh.

Ordered the sirloin steak, arrived under cooked and so tough it was hard to cut with a steak knife. Chewing it was near impossible. Ordered the trout next and it was served raw, to which I was told it was cooked sous vide and was to be like that. To be fair, the calamari appetizer was amazing and the entrees... More

My boyfriend and I went for Sunday Supper... A unique four course dinner that takes place every Sunday. At $35 per person, it was worth it. I was pretty hungry though, so I was hoping for a little bit more than we got, but hey- it was probably enough! The service was excellent, the decor is perfect & overall it... More

We spent a wonderful night and enjoyed the ambience, concise menu, and incredibly inventive drinks . The starter were unique and delicious. homemade cheesies and toast filled with Seafood. The dessert was also a pleasure we went with apple pie .The service and atmosphere of the place already hooked us even before we had tasted the food.

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.

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.
