Stopped by this place on a recomendation from a friend. The two of us had the babyback rib special. It was really good, meaty, tender, great slaw and mash. We also had the house bruschetta wich was excellent. Nice "faux patio/sunroom" to dine in. The service was great with a nice greeting from the owner. The menu selection was great... More

My wife and I had gone here with some friends from Fort Erie and I was impressed with the place. The steaks were perfect and the bruchetta was excellent. The wine was reasonable and the service was good.

We found this place by accident. Didn't have much time so we went in. When we were told it would be a 20 min wait to get a table due to not enough staff, we were a little hesitant. We sat at the bar and had a drink. In about 15 min we were at our table. There were 4... More

Didn't seem overly busy but after being ignored for 15 minutes, we left. Shame to have driven 40 minutes from St Catharines only to leave without eating.

We had heard about this restaurant and wanted to try it out. We called to make reservations and they told us to come half hour after what we wanted, she said it was busy. We got there 30 mins before our reservation. The restaurant wasn't busy but for some reason we still had to wait a good 10 mins before... More

We use to go here quite often, especially for pizza,, but the food has gotten progressively worse. The last time, each of us ordered a pizza and they were both terrible. I think I have had better pizza from McCains. Very dissapointing. Our leftovers even ended up in the trash...and honestly... Who doesn't like cold pizza. Crust didn't taste fresh... More

This restaurant is in a nice location and the food is quite good . The menu is varied with Greek and Italian being their specialties . Great Pizzas !!! The service is very good . My only complaint is the atmosphere is rather cold and the booths ... Seats are hard as rocks ; there's no cushioning on them .... More

Had lunch with a client here recently, very impressed with the food and service. We ate in the atrium, cool concept. And, they have good local beers on tap. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

We visited this restaurant because I saw it on here and we were traveling to the area for a night. We asked for the courtyard as I had seen photos of it and liked the atmosphere. It lived up to my expectations and far exceeded them! The gentleman that greeted us at the door was a friendly, funny older gent... More

I was coming over from Buffalo and meeting a friend from north of Toronto and checked for a restaurant in the downtown area. In spite of some negative reviews I thought we would take a chance since it was only going to be a quick lunch. We were very pleasantly surprised. It's a delightful setting in a restored old bank....
