“A very nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We visited this bistro during the Taste of Burlington event on Friday March 2. We were impressed. It's very attractive with a contemporary, yet intimate setting. Good acoustics, not noisy. Interesting music and not loud. The service was outstanding - Lynette waited on us and she did a superb job. Allison at the desk made us feel very welcomed. We noticed that all of the wait staff was attentive, yet low key and professional. We enjoyed our meal and the coffee was fresh and delicious. We would come again.

“Valentine's day was perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We drive from Oakville in search of a perfect, quiet dinner for Valentine's Day. Their special event menu was delicious! The ambiance was elegant, but still casual and comfortable. We weren't jammed in like sardines, but given space and time to enjoy our evening together. Fire grilled shrimp cocktail, steak and lobster both very abundant (to the point where we couldn't finish) and cooked to perfection. We were so full after our main that we had to take our fruit crepes to go! We had an inkling of that while we waited to be taken to our table...no less than 4 doggie bags for other patrons at the front. Our waiter was wonderful, and the overall evening perfect. Thanks for a great night out! We'll be bak.
