Awesome Brunch

I treated a friend to brunch who had not been there before. Her pancakes were amazing as was my steak sandwich. The service was wonderful as usual. It is so great to have a restaurant that you know the food and service will always be consistently great!

Our first time here was Saturday, and it will definitely be our last. We came in with a group, and I'm not sure how but for some reason our waitress despised our existence. She was incredibly rude and confrontational, I've never in my life had a waitress speak to me that way. Where it was my first time there I... More

We stopped in before going to the Neptune Theatre. We let our server know we were short on time, and they obliged - our meals came very quickly. Very impressed with the service. I thought they might be a bit stuffy at first - no reservation and only certain tables were available, however after getting seated all went well. Good... More

This was one of the first restaurants my partner and I tried when we moved to Halifax and it draws us back frequently. The food quality is exceptional, we have never had a bad meal here. It says a lot when a restaurant can serve me a french onion soup, which I usually detest, and have me coming back week... More

Great parking as "no one else" there. Pretty interior. Menu limited. Food terrible Wait person unknowledgeable but she cannot be blamed for the food. Second time there, first was not great, but always like to give a second chance. WON'T go back!! This RCR?? Awful.

So the test of a restaurant for me can be their French onion soup...so many ways to go wrong. No issues here! I enjoyed wine, soup and scallops. All were very nice. The restaurant is nice with three separate seating areas. I sat in the bar area which was quiet but I had to listen to the servers talking table... More

I've eaten here a few times on business and each time have enjoyed the hospitality and patience of the staff. Even in large groups of 10 or 25, they have been very accommodating and always make sure everyone is well taken care of. It's a pleasure.

First off, I'm not a picky eater or a food connoisseur by any means, but I do know when food is served cold, chewy and over salted it's not "fine dining". This resturant tries to pass itself off as something special but it failed across the board this evening. Shall I start with bathrooms that over flowed and were shut... More
