This is a newly opened place that is very nice (see photo). We got there at 5 on a Saturday evening...just when they opened for dinner. This was our first visit. My wife ordered the Stuffed Chicken and I ordered the Trout. The only criticism I have is that it seemed to take forever to get the... read more

We had high hopes for our first visit to this restaurant, but it was extremely disappointing (and that's putting it mildly). We were greeted by the owner who began by complaining to us about his greedy landlord at his former restaurant on Victoria -- which is now closed. That was an awkward way to start the evening. When we were... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by friends......whom say they had a great time. Our experience was HORRIBLE>>>>>>> would never recommend this restaurant ever..... A friend and myself went for dinner on a Friday evening...walked in the restaurant and it was empty yet we still waited 5 minutes or so to be seated. The menu was very limited. The app... More

My wife and myself are repeat customers for many years. Yesterday evening's visit was our worst experience. My wife's chicken was only average and my trout was somewhat dry and overcooked. The whole dish was served swimming in a sauce that overwhelmed even the taste of the vegetables. I am not one to complain in a restaurant and elected to... More

Delicious food, excellent service, and pleasant surroundings. Nothing is too much effort for the staff here, to make your visit enjoyable. We didn't like our wine, so no questions asked, it was exchanged. The food was delicious.

Fantastic food and drinks with flair. Expensive as hell but worth it for a special occasion. We went at Christmas and we went early, watching the restaurant fill with people who apparently had endless wallets and purses. We love to people watch, so it was quite entertaining. There are about a dozen varieties of the drink 'The Ceasar' which I... More

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our three year anniversary, and we were not disappointed! They used such a unique combination of ingredients for their dishes, and paired flavours that I would have never thought would work together. The ingredients were so fresh as well, you can definitely tell when your food has come in frozen vs being... More

I loved everything about the King Street Trio. We'd heard great things about the restaurant, but only had a chance to visit recently. The decor is upscale industrial. High ceilings, black and silver... just loved it. We sat at a table right beside the prep and cooking area. The Executive Chef and others talked with us throughout the meal. It... More

My wife and I ate here on a Monday night. We were quickly seated and the server acquainted us with the menu. Our order was taken fairly quickly and my wife was brought two tasting of different Chardonnays so she could select the most appropriate for the steel head trout, which she declared to be delicious. I selected the Osso... More

I should start by stating I was hoping to email the restaurant directly and privately with some feedback, but unfortunately there is no email address listed on their website. Went for a Friday dinner, party of 5, 2 of us celebrating birthdays. The place is beautiful inside. Our server, while Im sure a very nice person, spoke so softly it... More
