Ate here the other night. The service was good but the food was just ok, nothing special. The restaurant itself was nice and on the water. I don’t think I would go back.

Food was no better than what I would get in Toronto. And quite expensive. Had to go through a parking garage to go upstairs.

Went to this restaurant for lunch and had the mussels as the appie. It was the best mussels we have had. The crab dip and lobster mac & cheese was very good. Nice atmosphere and location as you look out at the harbour

A busy restaurant (would recommend a reservation unless you don’t mind eating in the bar area). The main menu was supplemented with a daily menu (mainly seafood apps & entrees). We tried the oysters, the scallops appetizer, the lobster Mac’n cheese, mussels and some ribs....More

This restaurant was recommended by a local friend so we had high expectations which is often a recipe for disappointment. The service was average at best. Of all our choices only the $46 halibut could be considered outstanding. Not a good value for what was...More
