Went two nights ago with my friend for Edmonton Dining Week. For $25 we received a started, entree and dessert. We started with the caesar salad which was surprisingly very good, our main was piri piri chicken with fries and although the chicken was perfectly cooked, moist and flavourful, the fries were just okay and the dish lacked colour on the whole. We had our choice of dessert. I chose the portuguese custard (similar to Creme Brulee) which although tasted okay, the plating left a lot to be desired. My friend ordered the tiramisu which I normally love but their version is slightly more alcoholic tasting than my palate prefers.
For a drink, I ordered one of their cocktails made with gin, St. Germain and sparkling wine. I'm normally a lover of these three combined and I've had lots of cocktails made with gin and st. germain but I did not really enjoy this version of their cocktail.
The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated and feels intimate and a perfect place for a date. They had live music that night, a guitarist who played a few splendid sets. Unfortunately, at around 9pm the club beneath the restaurant opens up which also means the bass from the house music playing can not only be heard, but felt through the wooden floor boards, so it detracted from the atmosphere which was so pleasant just prior.
All in all I would go back and try their regular menu. I believe they specialize in seafood. But I would try and go earlier on in the evening to prevent the downstairs club music from interfering with the night.
Service was good but by no means exceptional.
