AMAZING FOOD

Food was amazing, elegant presentation and delicious! Would have given a 5 but the atmosphere was very loud since there was a huge crowd and crying children. Service was quick..though would have enjoyed a bit more time spaced between courses Staff very efficient and knowledge of wine pairings... read more

Others In our party had chicken and strip loin which were good. I ordered seafood risotto. Risotto was good, can't say the same for seafood. Didn't find any crab, calamari was so tough, felt like rubber. Mussels may have been good but they were buried in puddle of sauce that tasted and looked like cheese wiz. Bad after taste as... More

Came in with my wife to try the Londonlicious menu and where blown away!. She had the salmon and I had the lamb. The salmon dish was well plated and she loved it. The lamb with the coffee crust and mocha porter demi-glace is a good pair. service was good, as was the wine. We will be back.

Visited on Jan. 28th, 2015 and not an enjoyable experience. I had mussels and expected to taste both garlic and the white wine, neither of which appeared to be in the cooking process. My other complaint was the Pinot Grigio was deep yellow instead of the pale colour I prefer. My mistake, should have asked to see the the wine... More

We went for lunch (the place was empty) and the greeter sniffed at us when we arrived and asked if we had a reservation. (We did not) .. acted like it was a great imposition for us to be there. Food make up for the lousy attitudes although it was rather pricey for a restaurant that over looks well, nothing... More

Ate here last night and had a first class meal. I ordered the Foie Gras appetizer as I'd never had it before. It melts in your mouth and isn't a fatty feeling like I had imagined it might be. My wife had the Grilled Calamari which were stuffed and both were beautifully presented. My wife followed with the Chicken Supreme... More
