Exquisite appetizers, great cocktail, good meal but let down dessert

We had to travel for 2 hours plus to get to this restaurant. We planned ahead since you need reservations. The service was very good and friendly (Michael was our waiter) and he explained, rightly so, that it would take some time for the meal (this is not a fast food restaurant!) so to relax, visit... read more

My husband and I were looking forward to a nice dinner and I was disappointed. They had issues with serving a warm bun with butter. It was cold. The sorbet was so cold it was difficult to eat but the most disgusting part was putting a cold scallop into my mouth. Wow! The vegetables were cold too. This place has... More

My husband and I came on our wedding night and we have been coming back here to celebrate our anniversary every year! We always have the chefs choice and are never disappointed. We love the quiet romantic atmosphere. We truly feel like we are away from the rush of every day life when we are here. Just the two of... More

I really really really wanted this to be a positive review. I really wanted to love this place. Finally – after years of it being on our “Foodie Bucket List” we were going to experience the Hole in the Wall. Regaled as THE dining experience to be had in Saskatoon. Well friends I am here to tell you that this... More

Went for our one year anniversary. As we drove out we read some reviews that weren't very positive. We got a little nervous but thought we had to try it ourselves and thank goodness we did. It was amazing! Not only does it feel like your somewhere tropical while inside the building but the food is just beyond words. We... More

Over sold, over priced to an extreme. Same comments echoed by others. Old worn down. Food....meh. Service....meh. $75 per person for the "experience" oh hell no. Don't do it. We were told how amazing this place was. Not a chance. Go to the Dundurn Pub if your out here, at least they don't pretend to be something they aren't.

Unfortunately went here for birthday supper. Ceiling tiles falling in from bathroom ceiling (yellow and water damaged). Wallpaper peeling from wall. Decor is a time warp. Food was cold. Picked Chef's Choice (3 item selection). He picked 3 cheapest entrees on menu. All were cold. Waiter was flippant and stated Chef had been working for 35 years and needed to... More

if you're looking for a 4 hour meal with small portions, average taste, average service, dirty washrooms and an over priced menu then this is the place for you. don't go to this place hungry.

This should be Saskatoon's top restaurant, in my opinion. The menu is wonderful, the food exceptional, and the service excellent. The location and setting are unique, but the drive is well earth the effort. Try one of the fixed menus, but expect to be there for a longggggg time. Did I say the food was superb? Nothing in the city... More
