My best friend and I came in for a drink on the patio last week. We we're absolutely blown away by the hospitality at this restaurant. I had not seen my friend for a long time because she came in from Hawaii. We started with the smoked salmon flatbread, and shared the halibut for dinner. Our server Niki was extremely... More

We were seated right away, with such friendly staff members. Erenee our server was incredible. Mentioned it was my moms birthday and she took great care of "momma" the whole evening. The food is unreal, awesome portion sizes, quick service and taste is out of this world! Highly recommended for any time of the day or occasion!

A bunch of mates and I came in and got seated on the patio. Was swiftly surprised on how fast we had literally just sat down and our waitress Nikki had approached us. She was so lovely and gave us great ideas on drinks for our sunny adventure in Vancouver. After having a couple drinks with happy hour we led... More

I sat on the patio and my server Nicki was great!! She was so attentive and sweet to our whole table, we never waited for anything and she was so prompt. Food was delicious! No complaints about the whole experience.

I had the most amazing beef tenderloin here last week! Deliciously sizzling dark flavourful crust, perfectly cooked edge to edge on the inside, tender and juicy with big bold beefy flavour. The atmosphere is incredibly friendly and the staff was super professional. Ereene (sp?) our server/hostess was such a delightful woman, her recommendations were spot on. Great experience overall :)

So we come here like all the time, this last time was especially good. We showed up at like ten with a group of a million people wanting a spot on the patio. It was a packed Saturday night. Another resto would have looked at us and laughed. Erenee, our lovely server, made us wait about fifteen minutes and whipped... More

First time here was for lunch on a Friday afternoon with my friend. It was very busy but we were seated quickly. I had the pesto chicken burger and it was very good, my friend had the tacos. The outdoor patio was very nice but a bit crowded. I would go back again to check out the inside and the... More

We came to this restaurant on our hotel's recommendation and we were not disappointed. Our server erenee immediately made us feel at home and recommended a selection of wines we wouldn't normally go for, but wow they were all 50% off on wine Wednesday! She paired our wine with excellent dishes and recommended another few restaurants for us to explore.... More

Wow, I haven't been taken care of like this since I was last at my mother's house! (This is an extremely good thing :D) We arrived at our table, (My roommate and I, two twenty something girls) and an amuse-bouche immediately appears before us. Mega cool and made us feel special! Our server, Erenee, pulled out all the stops. We... More
