This little converted house looks nothing from the outside in the dead of winter. The minute you step inside the rustic warm ambience takes over and you feel so comfortable. The service was attentive but not overly pushy, we were sat at the bar so could view the action of the kitchen too. We only called an hour earlier and... More

It was some years since we had last dined with friends at this top-rated mountain setting. We recently experienced another wonderful evening. Small warm intimate venue, excellent service and food. Appetizers were great, bruschetta had a unique twist. Rib-eyes were flavorful and tender, blueberry compote a nice touch; (Brome Lake) duck was meaty, moist, and tender; cooked to medium pink...

I came to the trough for a casual dinner as a Christmas present. Our server Pablo was very helpful, I started with the bruschetta which was amazing, afterwards I had the Brome lake duck breast which was incredible. I had the cheesecake for dessert. Great meal and great service, I'll definitely go again.

Everything about this restaurant was great; wait staff, food, beverages and atmosphere. The restaurant is small; but the meals were above average. Be sure to make a reservation. Will put this restaurant on my list for a return visit.

The atmosphere was quiet and quaint. We liked having our own room as there were 15 of us. They made the children feel welcome. The food was excellent and the service good.

Have visited this restaurant before. As always , a great dining experience. Great service , great ambience. One might not think the ribs would be a first choice as an entree... But this menu item is the best on the menu . The bruschetta is fabulous as well. And all the desserts :)

Great fine dining in a casual atmosphere. Food was spectacular and service from Pablo was terrific. Highly recommend that you make reservations well in advance of your planned visit. As per a previous post - the Bruschetta is truly amazing!

Went this past weekend and was simply fantastic, our server Kyle was attentive but unobtrusive. He made recommendations that did not disappoint (the bruschetta was GLORIOUS) and all of the mains were top notch. As well as the drinks (the French martini and the bellinis made my trip). This is a fantastic place that was perfect for a holiday dinner... More

This restaurant is a must for those who seek out fine dining. We were lucky enough to get last minute reservations, but as there are only 10 tables, we were informed that typically reservations must be made 1 to 3 days in advance. The Bruschetta was amazing! I could have eaten an entire meal of just that! But I didn't...... More

Went on a Friday night and it was so noisy you could NOT call this fine dining. Food was solid, creative and well thought out though. We enjoyed it and the service was good. Definitely worth trying but would be much better on a night without Friday after work drinking crowd.
