5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Excellent food and presentation, great beer, dark pub-like feel... Location was excellent, too: downtown on a great shopping street.

“Great Value for Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

We eat here regularly as a treat for ourselves. The food is at a higher price point then some of the restaurants downtown however the quality is very high and the food is something you simply could not make as well yourself.
The service is always nice and the tea selection is great. This small restaurant can get very busy but service and quality never suffers as a result. The portions are large and normally we end up taking home some food at the end of the meal.

“Down hill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

This used to be a good restaurant, key words are USED TO BE GOOD, not any more. The place is small and in the winter they put up a curtain near the door, what can't afford to put in another door to keep out the cold. Oh well don't sit near the door, if you go, but take my advise go some where else.

The food is not very good, ok, it's bad. When the first opened 12 years ago (approx), and Charlie was cooking it was great. That's what happens, you get new cooks and it goes down hill.

Remember if you go and it's bad and you read this, you can only blame yourself.
