My wife and I went to Thornton's for an early meal and was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant considering the random location of it. Very relaxing atmosphere and they had high quality food. There was deals on the tapas, which they had a nice selection, so we tried a few. This would be a great place for a romantic meal.

We really enjoyed our choices, PEI mussels, arctic char and gamba picante (nice and spicy). We especially liked our server Kayla. Next to a bowling alley makes you wonder. But enter and enjoy murals in the bathroom and on the walls and a polished and inviting atmosphere.

Last month I had done the same and was not called back, so didn't bother. We were seated at a lovely fireside table. Server was prompt and friendly. We ordered some drinks, and... More

This cozy restaurant not only offers fabulous food, but a dining experience with detailed exceptional service, and a cozy atmosphere with a glowing fireplace. It is especially worth going during the cold winter months!

Amazing service for our table of 6 on the busy Wine Down Wednesdays. Our server even allowed me to charge my phone behind the till. The smoked fish with pickled grapes and semolina cake was probably the best bite I've had in the past 3 months.

I went to the wine and tapas bar with a group of coworkers and it was the perfect venue for a group dinner setting! I had the trout and loved it!!!!
