“Simply Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

The place is so intimate, it looks as though almost every table is in a private dining room. The food was outstanding and service even better. We actually really enjoyed the coffees at the end of the meal, and found out that they support a Calgary roaster. Upon asking further, we found out a lot of their produce and ingredients are locally and sustainably sourced where possible. It is expensive, but worth every penny.

“Lovely food & ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Had dinner after a long two-day (albeit luxurious) train journey. Ambience and service were great! Food was good as well - do try some of the more adventurous offerings on the menu (like Bison). Hits all the right spots!

“very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

outstanding culinary presentation
maitre d' had a bit of a 'stuffy' attitude and a bit loud - rather small restaurant so could be quieter with wine discussions and general chat
accomodated our special request for a 16th birthday cake - was amazing
