We were a group of 10 and, in my opinion, we had the best seat in the house. We were seated at a large round table and meticulously cared for by our wonderful waiter, who had a wealth of experience. He was knowledgeable about the different dishes and wines and was easily the best waiter I have ever come across.... More

My daughter and I had her birthday dinner here and had a great time. We did the 1st course sampler for two. The 4 tier tower of small bites was beautiful and tasted wonderful. It was visually appealing as well as having different flavors and textures. It was like being the chef judge on one of the reality cooking shows.... More

Love Love Love the place. Has the best seafood in town, clean and fresh ingredients, excellent wine cellar and the service is the best. The only draw backs are that most often you cannot just 'pop' in to eat, reservations are required and it is not the cheapest place to eat! Well worth the wait and saving up if you... More

This restaurant deserves its reputation for fabulous ingredients, Trendy and very buzzy. Its expensive though and we had a rather cramped table with little space but well worth a visit

Located in (too) busy Yaletown, this place is noisy, but not killer. Good wine list, nice sushi/sashimi selection, very pleasant room, and great fish preparations. Prices in line with the rest of the city.

Very enjoyable evening meal. Had fish starter and steak main. Great white and red to go with the dishes. Reservation a must. Fairly expensive but worth every penny.

Very busy place with excellent fresh seafood Breads and spreads fresh and terrific. The soup of the day was particularly wonderful. Wine list by the glass, bottle and in some cases a carafe with 4 glasses. Waiter was knowledgeable and attentive though service diminished as the evening wore on. All in all an excellent meal in a loud place.
