I ended up here due to a groupon purchased by my wife. The ambiance was okay while the service was good and prompt. No complaints there. The food unfortunately was an absolute bust. My appetizer was buffalo mozzeralla with bresola. It was well presented on the plate and excitedly dove in. What a total flop. The first slices of bresola... More

We have dined here twice using a Groupon. But for the Groupon, these experiences would not have been very good at all. The food is average and in fact the last time, my wife's steak was served rare when it was ordered medium. The chef came out to say that, according to the temperature, the steak had been cooked medium.... More

They’re trying to give off an impression of a high-end restaurant but with their service and food quality... there’s a long long way to go. I purchased Groupon dinner for 2 includes 1 appetizer, 2 entrees & 1 dessert. The value of the coupon is totally over stated but the worst part is they added tips to the bill (by... More

Restaurant decor was ok - nothing special but not too bad. Didnt really like the food - the bruschetta tastswas a little stale and very little toppings and the appatizer that my mom ordered left alot to be desired (supposed to include mushrooms in a reduction sauce, but it was basically undercooked mushrooms in beef broth). They told us that... More

Ordered fish and was not cooked enough. Mentioned problem to owner and he was rude and impolite. He told me he tasted the fish and it was fine. I told him to eat it then. I didn't order anything else and whole ordeal was upsetting. Won't go back there!

This restaurant is located at the corner of a strip mall on the south side of Steeles Avenue between Keele and Dufferin. You could easily drive by and not give it a second thought. We found this restaurant through a Groupon Coupon - and as we live nearby decided to try it out. It is a lovely well appointed restaurant... More

This was to be a "date night" free of daily stresses, and although the restaurants decor is contemporary and charming the stench of BLEACH was overwhelming! Food had a constant taste of being burnt...not that the food was overcooked but rather that perhaps their cooking elements were too hot and therefore the flavour was embedded on their grill. Service was... More

We decided to try this restaurant with a Groupon deal and bring the kids along as well (even though the groupon was for 2). The service was pretty good, but not outstanding, as the restaurant was about 75% full and there were only 2 waiters to cover all the tables. The wait staff was polite and friendly and offered to...
