Great place, good value, great feel.

We stumbled upon The Office on Friday night and even though there was only two seats left and they were at the bar, we had a great time. The food was delicious and great value. The service was excellent. We can't wait to return.

Nice cool vibe. Priced right and bring your own wine in. Good beer selection but cant loose with zero cork-age if you are enjoying dinner.

The roast leg of lamb and the Italian wedding salad was the big hit at our table. We all had a great time and were never rushed with very professional service. I will return for the lamb and try some other menu items.

Had a great evening with friends at The Office. The fact that they have no corkage fee saves us on the cost of the wine make this place a great deal. The service was good. Had the Arancini and I would recommend a pass, as they were just not good. The Italian wedding salad was a hit with roasted tomato,... More

We had lunch at the office a couple of days ago, the restaurant has a great atmosphere, the food was very good, the paninis are very nice. We would definitely go back

Good solid restaurant with good food and wine and a bistro-like atmosphere. Quite reasonable prices. Salads very good and desserts excellent as well. Not at all "fancy" but nice atmosphere and very friendly service.

We are locals and think this is one of the best places in town. Always busy and great service. Happy, fun atmosphere and a wide variety of food on the menu. The fish and frites (home made) are my personal favourite but I switch it up for a delicious salad instead of the frites most visits. Bring your own wine... More

I've been coming to the office for about 5 years, and let me just say I that this place is the perfect spot for date night or girls night. The atmosphere is gorgeous, candles on the table and not too dimly lit dining room. My boyfriend and I have not once received poor service, and everyone is accommodating. The Italian... More
