A nice Mediteranean restaurant with ambiance. Have eaten here on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the food, the superb service. Have never been disappointed with our visit and will continue to make this restaurant one of our favorites.

rude, disrespectful owner, should have never gone back but thought we'd try if after not being there for awhile.We had a bad meal and the owner rudely swore in front of our granddaughter. We went on Christmas Eve, the owner was so rude and nasty, very shocking how he could humiliate and treat people so horrible on Christmas Eve. Shame,... More

Worst food and service I have ever had. An appy, and two main course for $75 is way over priced for what you get. I had a linguine plate that was void of any flavour except a ton of butter. My company had a salmon dish that tasted like grill with a watery grey sauce that also tasted like grill.... More

Dinner for two Aug 2016: Friendly clean environment & helpful doting staff. Great range of menu items. Tasty mushroom caps, but a bit too cheesy. Steak special and Rib eye steaks were delicious and tender! We came specifically for steaks based on previous reviews and were pleased with our decision. Background elevator music was initially fine but then really annoying... More

After I sent my meal back due to something in my dish, I received flavourless, over priced salmon. I spent $75 on 2 meals and one appetizer, no drinks. The atmosphere was dull and staff was not outgoing.
