“Delicious in all senses!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Had a fabulous Valentine's dinner here... Great wine list. I love the fact they feature a lot of international wines as well as some great local BC wines.

The ceviche I ordered was delicious... it had a nice smokey flavor that I've never experienced before and the housemade tortilla chips were heavenly.... We also had the lobster bisque and some raw oysters which were phenomenal.

We shares this gigantic surf and turf platter for two and it was done to perfection. I highly recommend it.

Staff which top notch... you don't get much better service than that....

Truly one of my most favorite dining experiences in Vancouver.

“Fantastic service, food, music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Hubby and I were treated royally for his birthday, despite being there on a packed, busy Dining-Out Vancouver weekend night. Greeted by name by our waitress, fantastic corner table on second floor, and welcomed with personalized menus and a surprise birthday candle in Creme Brûlée for dessert. Service was super-friendly, attentive, but so patient on such a busy evening. Fantastic huge wine list. Despite plans to do Dine Out menu, we ordered off regular menu -so glad! Lobster bisque and beet salad appetizers were gorgeous -both in presentation and flavour. Seafood entrees both perfectly prepared & delicious, and we appreciated the kitchen's no problem attitude in agreeing to make requested substitutions. Piano player (keyboard band member from Prism!) was totally awesome and enhanced the evening's entertainment experience 100%. Absolutely delightful and memorable evening. Pricey, but so worth it for a special occasion. We will be back.

“excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We ate here on our holiday stop of to whistler.
The place is massive well run and very busy which is a good sign.
The service was top notch even to the point of when we arrived home to the uk there was a hand written card sitting on our porch mat thanking us for our custom.
A special thankyou must go out to our waiter Matteo.
