Fun Friend Gathering Spot

A fun spot to gather with friends for an after work snack and drinks! The outdoor patio is especially fun. The food portions are good for light eaters.

A first class establishment, perfect for a lunch, dinner or an after work get together. A nice evening treat for you and your significant other but also great for a work luncheon or celebratory reward. In our experience we've always been very pleased with the food, which is generally priced above that of the larger chain restaurants (Boston Pizza, Kelsey's,... More

Went to Wildcraft with a couple of coworkers. The service was good. So was the food. We just didn't find anything exciting about it. So would I g there again? Probably not only due to the cost for an average meal.

I live a block from another charcoal group restaurant. Wildcraft is my favourite, but I am noticing that they all share a lot of similarities. I don't eat meat, only fish, so for me, all of the charcoal group restaurants offer either salmon and grains or tuna and maybe one other fish dish. Depending on the day, they're pretty well... More

I made reservations for 5 friends and we were sat at a fabulous round table near the fireplace. One of my girlfriends has food restrictions and they were very accommodating. Each of us loved our meals. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The atmosphere in the restaurant was fabulous and set a great mood for our wonderful evening.... More

My fiancé and I ate here and we both have nothing but wonderful things to say about the service, food and atmosphere. As for the lengthy review I read below (which I'm sure took an hour to write)....I suggest you eat at home where the lighting is perfect, you've had special cutlery made, washrooms signs are very visible and you...

I’ve gone for lunch here twice in the last two years. I know it has good reviews but as much as I want to like this restaurant, the food always leaves me disappointed, hence the two stars. If I had enjoyed at least one of my dishes I would have given them three stars. I think the menu sounds delicious... More

A couples dinner on a Friday night. The place was packed but making a reservations in advance seemed to really help as we got a good table by the window. We met a lot of staff throughout the dinner and all of them did a great job. I had the Beef Tenderloin and my wife had the Boneless Short Rib.... More

Never liked dinner here when it was busy....noisy and had to scream at each other just to heard. But dropped in after work and it was much more better. :)
