Great pickerel and chips.

Patio is very enchanting. Service is attentive and helpful. The pickerel was mouth watering and the Frits were done perfectly.

Food is good, service is good, over priced and too fancy on the food selection. They need to add a few simple choices

We had dinner with friends (one of whom is a chef) to celebrate the sale of their home. We were completely dazzled with the creativity of the menu, service, knowledge of the wait staff, presentation, location and view. A definite for anyone in the neighbourhood or passing through Burlington. Can't wait to return!

The menu was very very different...casual and not at al what all 4 of us expected for fine dining. My advice would be to revewi the menu before you go. Then there is the issue of... More

Was here for a birthday dinner. Started with the cheese board, waitress didn't seem to be educated to much on what selection we were choosing from which was disappointing as we were new to "cheese boards". Ordered a lovely steak and the Queen E burger. Great food, finished it off completely. Situated near the back was a bit noisy near... More

It was very busy the night that we went, but the staff is really on the ball. Service was excellent, waiter knew when to come to the table and when to leave us alone. Great service and excellent hamburg!

I have been to this restaurant many times. Very nice ambience - a little highbrow staff - but overall good for and a nice place to go for a nice view. Tried to book a reservation 2 weeks ahead of time for a 50th brunch and it was accepted with my credit card. Only moments later, it was rescinded, then... More

Nice casual atmosphere, specially outside when you can enjoy outdoor sitting area with heating elements which make it very enjoying in winter time. The salad Bar very rich , kids can find many things to eat, the Grill Meat Varieties were very rich with flavour, The only problem that you will eat much more than usual for sure, because it...

Very busy place. Must make a reservation and may have to wait a few minutes even with that. Portions are not generous but are just right and every dish is cooked perfectly every time. Great date place. Great brunch!
