Great food

You will not be disappointed by the food at this place. I had the chance to have dinner and breakfast here and both meals were of high quality. I would recommend the scallops - the chef is creative and it is obvious that they take the time to have a lovely plate presented to the customers. Adequate... read more

the service and the food is top notch and the service is great. Really like the Lunch Menu the soup and sandwich deal of the day for less than $10.00. The place is busy but never crowded so you can get in and out and back to work quickly. Good place for doing some business over lunch. Nice for romantic... More

Service was great. Portions are way too large. Frozen burger patty. That was a big turn off. Artisan salad very good.

Second time I have had the scallops with pea puree, asparagus and veggies made by Lindsay and it is not only beautiful, but scrumptious. Service is great too.

I found the service very slow and one of the servers tended to ignore me every time I came into the restaurant. The food was good, slow getting to the table, and is expensive. Breakfast buffet was hot and good. Happy hour is a great time to get snacks and a beverage for a great price.

I also liked the haddock, not the chicken alfredo pasta - found it blah. Service was good. Ate here twice. Bar area put hockey game on for us.

One of the best meals anywhere! I have eaten here before and usually very happy with food and excellent service. This Sunday, April 12th was exception. Due to Chef Theresa her presentation and meal (pork tenderloin) were the best I have ever had anywhere. Also service by Theresa was wonderful. Always great servers. We will return and spread the word!
