WOWWWWWW! I can't stop thinking about the dinner we had here. At first we were not going to stay because we walked in and there was no TV's (Rangers & the Jet's were both playing). We decided to just stay and have a romantic dinner. I'm so glad we stayed because it was the most romantic place. The vibe is... More

"Come before six p.m. Or after nine", the waitress advised when I dropped by on Sunday. I wanted to treat friends to a meal like I'd eaten there the night before, kielbasa on home fries with fried Brussels sprouts. We'd sat beaming with satisfaction at the unusual combo of ingredients and the amazing flavour. On arrival--late--the next night, it seemed... More

This restaurant had been recommended to me several times & we finally had a chance to try it. The atmosphere seems much more "bar like" than you would expect for gourmet food. The food is delicious if you enjoy upscale gourmet food. We enjoyed duck confit with braised cabbage, pork belly with lemon polenta, kale & feta, bread & butter... More

This is a wonderful unique restaurant with outstanding food prepared in very original ways. For example, we ordered fried brussel sprouts as an appetizer, and they were absolutely delicious (and I don't like brussel sprouts usually). The beef carpaccio was also superb as a main dish. The kale and pear salad and their list of locally-made cheeses---equally great. If you... More

Stopped here for dinner after it was recommended twice by locals. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. The charcuterie was fabulous, best I've every had. We each had a small plate after. No room for dessert. The calamari was to die for. Can't wait to go back! Staff could be better, but the food is worth it.

The food here is terrific, very interesting, and not like anything anywhere else. We had fried duck hearts served with garlic mashed potatoes--wonderful! The Brussels sprouts are delicious--no idea what the chef seasons them with, but it's delicious. Plenty of choices of beer and wine, lots of specialty drinks. The place was very crowded and noisy on a Friday night,... More

We really enjoyed oursevles here. You don't want to miss the great service and the food that is very well-prepared. Closed Sunday and Mondays which was a drag for us and our last day here... we will be back for sure. The spaghetti squash gnocchis and a side of brussels sprouts was done to perfection. Thank you.

Just go! The creativity behind their meals and drinks is something to experience. You may not get large portions, but quite frankly I left feeling full and my palate satisfied. This place is unique (both decor and menu) and the staff was very helpful and kind. A must see! Their drink list is something to experience by itself!
