Good overpriced food

Small and dark in a nice dining atmosphere kind of way. Pricey menu but well prepared food and friendly service. It is kind of a sketchy downtown neighbourhood but the renovated building is lovely.

Have been here before and have had catering by this restaurant without complaint, bit tonight was completely let down. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing. This was part of a campaign called Barrielicious. The menu was chef choice of three appetizers, two mains, and both dessert choices. We left hungry and went to a place near our home... More

Due to previous negative experiences, I had decided to avoid this restaurant. However, I received a gift certificate and naturally wanted to use it. I invited a friend and we went there this past Saturday. We both started our meal with the grilled calamari appetizer. It was absolutely delicious, the calamari was tender and the combination of the grilled asparagus,... More

We took our adult daughter and her fiancée here for dinner over a Christmas visit. The food was amazing! I am still thinking about it and know I will be back. I had been before for Barrielicious but never just to order off the regular menu. We all loved our meals and couldn't stop talking about it the next day.... More

My husband and I, with 5 others, made reservations for New years. We received our meal two and a half hours later. Our meal was cold,and not properly cooked. Although we received one meal on the house as well as a few drinks,it still did not justify the price we paid and the poor service. At least the bread baskets... More

I'll break it down into 3 phases! 1) Atmosphere-- Casual yet refined... Nice ambiance whether you are a couple or a group of friends. Dining room side has seating for approximately 30 guests and they also have a bar side and a patio fronting on to Mary Street. 2) Service-- We received exceptional service from all of the wait staff....

We visited for an early dinner on a Saturday night and had a very private meal in the second floor dining room. The presentation of the food is only surpassed by its' excellent quality and superb preparation. Portions were generous compared to many fine dining restaurants. Service was outstanding. Well worth spending the extra money for a dining experience, not... More

Have always wanted to try out this restaurant everyone talks about and finally last night I had the chance. Excellent selection of wine, delicious sushi appetizer and amazing squash cannelloni. Service was perfect, ambiance was lovely. Definitely a place I highly recommend!
