It's fine dining but this generally means small portions. Atmosphere was ok. Wouldn't go back or recommend to anyone!

My wife and I have been here 7-8 times and it's great everytime. I love watching them prepare and plate my meal. Great atmosphere and service is always excellent as well. If that all wasnt enough- creme Brule is alway on the desert menu- boom. Definitely our go-to!

This restaurant does not disappoint. Their menu is small, fresh, different, and made to order in front of your eyes. I love the open kitchen. The specials are always great and the staff know their wines - tell them what you like and let them pick something for you.

Being had not been there since the new owner... was so disheartened when we ordered didn't have what we ordered, service was terrible, it was so dark we couldn't read the menus, it was a first date and was so not good ! it just was a complete bad experience.

I came from Ottawa to try this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Everything is excellent. Upon entering it is a nice bistro, quiet atmosphere, not crowded, you have room to move. The kitchen is open and the aromas of the food being prepared circulate throughout the restaurant. Courtney was our server and she was simply great, very pleasant, very... More

I bought my girlfriend here for her birthday back in August, and my first impression was that it is very good. It was a weekday night and not that busy, the service was pretty slow, but the food was excellent when it did come. I think this is a great place for rich people or for regular people who want...
