The restraunt in in the best western which is definitely nothing special but we needed a place to stay. The restraunt has a beautiful atmosphere, very interesting menu. The presentation of the meals and quality was impeccable. Would with out a doubt dine here again.

We were in Orillia overnight en route to pick up kids at nearby camp. Checked out recommended places and looked at their websites - Martini Fridays sounded like fun and we were within walking distance so we headed over. We had planned on sitting at the bar for martinis, a bite to eat and wine but 2 tv screens and... More

Thank you GyspySoles for your review. We are very sorry about your disappointing dining experience with us. Yes, we do have a very extensive martini list available all the time...over 50 martini's available 7 days a week! Our homemade Caesar dressing is something that many people rave about. The arancini on our menu is spicy. Thank you for bringing this... More

The food was wonderful. The service was great. The atmosphere was divine. The martini bar is nice and cozy and serves the same great menu as the restaurant. A must to visit.

We were here several weeks ago - we ordered the Escargot, Rib steak and a tenderloin steak. The Escargot - This was not what we are used to but great for someone that is trying escargot for the first time. It was served with a pile of melted cheese on top which made it hard to even taste the escargot.... More

Here for a performance at Casinorama. Food is high quality / chef grade. Katelyn made me a special martini of her invention (banana cream pie) - not usually into martini's, loved it. I would come here again the next time there is a show in town.

We went back for a second time because my husband really enjoyed the burger we had at the bar one time. The waitress was okay, not great. After trying to upsell us on the wine deal, which we didn't want, she basically lost interest in us. Brought me the wrong salad (a much bigger and twice as expensive one) I... More

Yes, we went during the area's restaurant promotion so the dinner was priced lower than what would normally be expected but we find this restaurant one of our favourites during these times. It has sufficient choice, well presented, tasty, somewhat unique for the area eateries. The portions were very good considering it was a special, not always found at other... More

So I am betting on any other night we would have had a better experience. As it was Valentine's Day the prices were hefty, the place was busy, and the service was painstakingly slow. Regardless, the spirit of the service was enthusiastic and genuine, and the food was good. There is a decent wine list, and an interesting martini list,... More
