I went for the first time with my cousin. She had been prior to this for dinner with her Husband. So we came for cocktails since we were bar hopping in Gastown. I was just mesmerized as the bar tender was making our drinks. When he said they're strong, I didn't believe him at first, but he sure was right.... More

Booked table to celebrate our wedding anniversary, I know the name not the most romantic. Wonderful reception from friendly helpful staff. Great buzz in the restaurant. Excellent breads and a menu that had me struggling to decide on what to eat as all dishes looked wonderful. Settled on the octopus followed by the halibut which were spot on. Shared the... More

I went here only for the dessert and it was awesome! It was a perfect portion and presented in an elegant fashion. Also, the décor within the restaurant is very trendy and intimate. It's a great date night spot!

We had visited this restaurant when we were in Vancouver last year, and enjoyed it so much we went again. The restaurant is in Gastown, and features an open floor plan with exposed brick walls. We split two cold appetizers, two warm appetizers, and a dessert, along with drinks. The service was good, the noise level energetic, and the food... More

My wife and I ate here for dinner last night (after dinner at Blue Water Cafe the previous night). I had the octopus starter and then the sockeye salmon. The octopus was tough, and clearly overlooked. The sockeye salmon was also over cooked and the crust on top was under seasoned. My wife had the poached steelhead starter which was... More

This place is fantastic. the restaurant was recommended to us so we gave it a try, even with the fact that we saw on the menu online there was nothing vegetarian for me - the staff was great they said "no problem", talked to the kitchen and they spontanely created a vegetarian menu just for me. The plates are not... More

This was one of the best dining experiences I have had in North America. I went with two friends. We each had a signature cocktail. I will definitely recommend you do the same. We followed with two appetizers: the fresh tomatoes and the bbq octopus. Both were excellent and made for a pleasant combination. For a main meal, you can't... More

Went here for a romantic honeymoon dinner after reading some reviews and the food exceeded every expectation I had of the place. Every course was divine, full of flavour and everything on the plate worked perfectly together. Only downer was the noise, was a hit hard to hear my husband but the quality of the food outweighs this negative. Huge... More
