Simply the best restaurant in the Niagara region. Elegant, delicious food, beautifully presented by friendly servers with no pretentious foodie bull****. On our last visit, we had the smoked trout and seared tuna appetizers, followed by the steak/frites and pasta mains, all done to perfection. Off the tourist trail in downtown St. Catharines, but well worth the detour.

Had lunch here with my daughter. The restaurant was not overcrowded so we enjoyed a pleasant and unhurried lunch, The food was excellent. Well prepared and very tasty. The service was great, just enough attention so that we didn't feel rushed but did feel 'looked after'.

Very good food, nice clientele, pleasant rooms and good service – that’s not a sentence but true, nonetheless. I've eaten lunch here a dozen times or more and always enjoyed my meal.

We live around the corner and had never been here. I must say I'm sad I hadn't discovered it sooner. We started with the pate and beef tartare, this is my new favourite pate ever! Main course was the fried chicken and venison I liked the fried chicken better not to say the venison was bad. Dessert was the carrot... More
