Thorton's Wine and Taps Room always offer top notch service. To bad they are not open in the summer. However that being said I find the food note worthy and the service excellent!

Went here with a group for lunch. We had preordered our lunch so there would not be a wait but this did not work out to well. Still had a 27 min wait.

Food was awesome, loved the decor and atmosphere at the restaurant. Wine was delicious. Staff were prompt and I didn't have to wait long for my food. I had trout and quinoa... So great! I have a gluten allergy and it was so nice to have this meal that accommodated that!

For times when you want to treat yourself or someone else. Yellowknife's best food. For a deal, check out Wednesday evenings when wine is half price, or go for an after-work happy-hour appetizer before 6.
