I wasn't sure what to expect. It's got a family feel to it, ie run by a family, and feels a little eclectic (woven tablecloths with a Moroccan feel). It was a Saturday lunch and busy. Service was good, friendly, informal. The food was fantastic, really reasonably priced and super tasty. I had a chicken sandwich that came with a... More

My husband and I forget about this place ... until we remember. We've never had a bad meal there. It's upscale bistro fare with some nice twists. The staff is accommodating and we love the street scape in terrace season. In the winter it's cozy and inviting. I think the only reason we forget about it is that there are... More

Loved this little place. We were out on the patio which had a great feel to it. I had lobster cakes to start and the beef pasta dish as my main and really enjoyed both. Service was fantastic! They were very accommodating to our large group and gave us thirteen individual bills (business trip) without any issues. Waiter was very... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious three course meal with wine using a buytopia voucher. I had the soup of the day, the fish as a main course and lemon raspberry cheesecake for dessert. My husband had escargots, penne pasta with beef tenderloin and crème brule. Everything was delicious. Our server, Alexa, was very attentive and very pleasant. She... More

Four of us went for Summerlicious. Loved the menu. I had steak and fries which were great. Instead of apologizing for being short staffed you should stop accepting customers that you are unable to serve properly. We waited forever for a menu as well as each course and the bill.

We were walking towards Chinatown on Baldwin avenue looking for a good brunch spot on a Sunday morning and we came across this place. It seemed cute and had a nice patio and so we thought that we would give it a try. We were definitely glad we did. The menu was good, featuring a brunch selection of sandwiches, breakfasts,... More

Came across this little Gem on Baldwin Ave completely by accident. Friendly staff with an great vibe. Had one of the Italian thin crust pizzas and it competed with those in Rome. Great little front porch for a beverage or an espresso to people watch. Even better there is a private back patio that would be great for a small... More

We came by around 4pm so the full menu was not available. We tried two of the veggie pizzas and they were great (with the exception of the ingredients falling off which was annoying). We ordered bruschetta which came out much smaller than I expected and the pizzas were more pricey than I would have liked. Not accessible for wheelchairs... More
