Sub par

Lack lustre atmosphere mixed with a hung over, un enthusiastic waiter made the crazy priced dishes very noticeable. I will never recommend or return. Sad because there are not many fine dinning choices in Yellowknife. But it was a complete waste of money.

Upon arrival I was greeted by our waitress. She was attentive as she presented our table of 11 with our options. The food was delicious and I was glad to see they removed the funky decorations they used for plate presentation. Everything served was warm, and delicious. From the point of arrival to departure was 2.5 to 3 hours for... More

The service, the atmosphere, and the food were very good. I found it to be quite pricey. They have a nice selection of wines.

Same goes for the atmosphere - sometimes good and nice music and sometimes there is a bad live musician and the music is too loud, sometimes too hot sometimes too cold. I've had amazing food before and other times I was disappointed, either way the food... More

Nice variety of appealingly presented and delicious items on the menu. They had a musical duo the evening we were there, and they were enjoyable but not intrusive. Excellent experience
