I travel a lot and have had wonderful dining experiences around the world. GdP in my hometown offers a similar first class experience. Great food, Great atmosphere and even better service!

The service here is top notch, the food is prepared well and there is a unique drink menu. For Waterloo, it is hard to find a finer night out.

Met some friend for wine and appetizers in the lower level bar area. Fantastic décor and the service and appetizers were both wonderful. Will definitely stop here again.

He held my chair for me, then my boyfriends. Our server was expereienced and knowledgable. The food was fabulous- our server took her time between courses so... More

Great service, wonderful steak. Interior is truly amazing piece of art, painted by the owner. Great asset to downtown Waterloo!

We have lived in this area for over 10 years, but we just discovered this restaurant last month. It was just a perfect experience. It may have had something to do with the opportunity to eat without two little ones, but we just loved it. The raviolini appetizer was different than we expected, but it was very good. I ordered...

It was a bit pricey but very unique and worth the experience. Food was great, service was exceptional, atmosphere, decor and ambiance was off the charts. This is a one-of-a-kind dining experience that everyone needs to try at least once.

This is a nice restaurant towards downtown Waterloo. If you would like good food for a more reasonable price go downstairs to the bar and order off of the bar menu. The food was excellent and the portions were ample. The wine menu is very limited so don't expect much there but otherwise a nice experience

The owner may have made a diamond out of a rough building, but the only thing memorable about this dining experience was the awful service and the indignant owner. It was hands down the worst service I've had in what claims to be a nice restaurant. And the food wasn't that great either. I was in town for a meeting... More
