It's not that I didn't like this restaurant. However, I didn't find anything special about it at all compared to the similarly-ranged restaurants in the west end (Joey's, Moxies, etc.) all of which look the same & pretty have the same menus with different names. I was expecting something unique. But it's not. Though the food is overpriced, it is... More

Great food, drink and service. The burger is just perfect! The bar is great for cocktails too. It's a little bit expensive but you pay for what you got. Fair enough.

The food was very tasty, especially the ceviche & the deep-fried calamari. Service was very attentive & helpful. Due to good weather we sat outside, away from the aircon; inside looked a bit dark.

strip loin steak was only average and overpriced. However the raviolli with prawns was a life changer-amazing flavor! There are better steaks at more reasonable prices in town and the service was onmly fair. Prices were high but the wine list was good. Sort of an industrial ambiance.I can recommend this place based on the chef's specials.

We chose this spot because of a good TripAdvisor rating and we're pleased with our choice. The location, right at the edge of the mall by Sears, made for a quicker trip to the dining table than some of the in-mall restaurants offer. We sat in the solarium, which was a lovely sun and plant-filled spot. The beer list and... More

Went here the other night with some out of town guests. We shared some appetizers of Calamari and Tuna Tataki which were both very good. I then had the Butternut Squash Ravioli with Prawns with sage and truffle oil which, as previously described, is absolutely excellent. The flavours are amazing. Just delicious. Friends had steaks which were perfectly cooked and... More

Went here for dinner with a friend as it was one of her favourite places! Was surprised to see Rob Feenie helped design part of the menu! The service was a bit on the slow side although it was jam packed at around 5PM in the afternoon. They had beer on special for 5 bucks a pint (Can't remember which)... More

I went with 3 friends to celebrate a birthday and we were at the Jasper Ave location downtown. The food and drinks are pricy, but absolutely worth it for a special occaision. We shared the lettuce wraps, edmame beans and flatbread for appetizers and everything was amazing. The butternut squash with prawns was one of the best meals I've ever... More
