My husband and I love doing the tasting menus when we visit here on our anniversary. It allows us to eat leisurely and enjoy each other's company without flipping through menus to make a last minute decision because we don't want to make our server come back again. I've only dined here once while not pregnant, but from what I... More

There is Tapas and there is Tapas....this was probably neither. We went eagerly on a Saturday evening fully anticipating something special. The restaurant space itself is exciting and unique but the spread was less than impressive. I could have cracked a jar of olives and rolled some PC proscuitto myself for a similar effect. To top it off, the use... More

The building itself is really beautiful with exposed stone and old charm. We visited on stormy winter Sunday night so the restaurant wasn't overly busy. The service was was really good and the food was delicious. Great place to visit for a date night or group. We will return again and would recommend.

This is an adventure in dining! If you can't decide when you look at menus this is for you! You tell them any dietary concerns and preferences and the chef surprises you with course after course of delicious, freshly prepared, gourmet plates. The ambience of this unique restaurant is historical, quaint, and quite scenic. Have gone twice already for special... More

Monty's is a quaint, quirky little place we don't go to often, but when we do, we always enjoy the unique menu and quiet ambiance and as a result, have referred many friends. Well, after last evening, we won't likely go back until they figure out their "niche" again. We were so disappointed to find they have changed their wonderful... More

This little local joint on Queen st offers delicous tapas style food. Amazing spicy duck wings cauliflower fritters and smoked bacon scallops. Enjoy some great live acoustic music while you dine.

The night was enjoyable and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The selection, however, was limited and much smaller than a few months ago. The table sizes did not accommodate the plates and therefore, felt very crowded. The wine selection was ok, but "per glass" was almost non existent and therefore had to pay for full bottle when only a... More

I went there with a friend and ordered the Full Monty. It was 7 courses of tapas including dessert. They asked a few questions about our likes and dislikes and then started bringing out the food. The food was amazing, we both loved it. Make sure you have plenty of time to spend there though as we were there for... More

Went this last week with my girls from work, they had a live music that was nice in the back ground. The pizza was out of this world, felt like we were in Europe some where. Thin crust. We shared three of them and had a couple tapas to share.
