In whitby the only restaurant with predict able quality is the keg. But since it is always over capacity we decided to try here. It was good for whitby. Hostess was excellent although the server seemed a bit overwhelmed and forgetful. The food was good for dinner but think chatter Pauls is better. Atmosphere was good but for value and... More

This place has been a top spot in Durham for years and yet it never gets old. The food is always creative and always great. They might just offer the best service in Oshawa. Keep it up Wanda.

Six of us went for my son-in-law's birthday. We had never been before but had heard good things about the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere, great service and the best and most delicious food. There is something for everyone from seafood to steak, to chicken, to pasta and even vegan meals which they will modify from their current... More

Very nice cozy restaurant in Oshawa, service is always great, the menu isn't large which I like so you get everything fresh.

We decided to go out for dinner to see how an old friend was doing. We had been to Shrimp Cocktail several years ago a few times with my parents but vaguely remember it. We found the menu to be rather small but did order the special and a salad for me. Food was good. Service was excellent!

I enjoy the atmosphere most of the time. the service was lacking last visit having our drink ordered after people who were seated after us. Only resteraunt I've been to where I've received bad oysters so no more chances with those here again. I'll give it a awhile before I return.

Went here a few weeks ago with some girlfriends and was very impressed! If you love seafood you will want to go here for sure! The seating was spacious and the atmosphere was very clean and modern. They don't have a large menu but what they do have is superb. I had the lobster mac n cheese and the portion... More

We drove a fair distance to try this restaurant but did not realize they were hosting a wedding. As a result we were put into an upstairs room called the tower which is a far cry from their main dinning room. I always question it when restaurants chase more business by taking on special events in their main dinning room.... More

Wow did we ever feel special! The cozy Chef's Table is a relaxing delight from the moment you sit down. We had pre-booked a week ahead of our visit. We let the chef prepare his own unique creations for us along with wine pairing. The presentation and taste combinations of each plate was phenomenal--a real treat to the palate! The... More
