We lived in Barrie 10 years ago and it is too bad this restaurant was not around back then. We dined there on a Saturday night with a reservation (recommended for a Saturday). The restaurant was busy but not jammed. The service was prompt, professional and friendly. When our server gave us the bill for the next table (in error), she apologized and quickly corrected the error.
The food was wonderful. We had the beef and chicken respectively and both were done superbly. The entrees plus the appetizers were all crafted using local food and much creativity.
The restaurant's decor is a bit dark but not oppressively so. The prices are proportional to the quality of the food and its presentation.
If you have not been - it's worth a visit and to treat yourself.
