We here for a business dinner. Tried the special for the day - Ramen Noodle with Calamari. It was a one hell of a bad dish, both me and my colleague who ordered left half of it. Calamari was chewy, and the noodles were lacked...any particular taste. Rest of our group ordered regular items that were good. I noted the Fish and Chips were good portion.More

Absolutely delicious! Had the special appetizer which was glazed pork belly with hoisin sauce and scallops - only negative is the portion size was quite small, but the pork was so yummy and the scallops were cooked to perfection! Then had the double smoked pork...chop - little piece of heaven right there - and the braised beef and mushroom pasta with blue cheese crumble... so so good!! Great portion sizes on the mains as well. Did not leave hungry! Service was also fabulous! Definitely recommend!More

Friendly staff at this local sourced restaurant. Creative cocktails, we enjoyed the summer slam cocktail and there was also a good local beer selection. The burgers are excellent, the spinach salad was a meal in itself. We started with Mac and cheese balls, who doesn’t...like these - they were great, good portion size and crispy yet, soft and gooey. Restaurant is small and tables are packed in quite tight - make a reservation before heading over. Prices are on the high end however, quality of meals and experience justify them.More

We had a terrible meal last night and the service was nothing special either. Heard so many wonderful things so I was very disappointed especially for what they charge you. We were 3 ppl 55 age group who like to eat out at good restaurants....So here is our experience. We all ordered different meals and different appetizers. They delivered our appetizers to a different table where those people started to eat them and realized they weren’t theirs because they had asked for special omissions. Good thing they didn’t have allergy’s or that would have been bad. So we waited for ours to me remade. So my soup came it was tasty but barely Luke warm. Chowder was very salty and fishy(fresh??). Fish tacos one tasted good the other not so much. So on to main courses. Mine was the worst dish I have ever tasted, so fishy I thought I was going to be sick. Husbands burger was ok, poutine upgrade not worth it and Luke warm gravy. When my sister didn’t finish her fish I knew it wasn’t good either. Oh and we had to ask for proper cutlery with each course. Spoon for soups and condiments that we asked for with the burger. So we decided on dessert which we thought had a brownie with it turned out to be just ice cream(which was good). Again gave us forks to eat the ice cream with so we had to ask for spoons. Oh my not good! So while we were waiting for our meals we saw 2 other tables get served incorrect food orders and 2 tables send back food! Let’s just say I won’t be returning!More

Food was great. One of their signature side dishes is deep fried Mac & Cheese...a must have! Atmosphere never so loud that you can’t hear one another talk.

The food here is good. The layout is quite crowded, not a lot of space to move around between the tables. The staff were very good overall. It isn't cheap to eat here, for sure, but nice once in a while...

Fish and chips were yummy. Chicken poutine although to...much for one person my sister enjoyed it. Waitress super friendly.More

Got the burger. Waiter not very friendly, got the food by another waiter. The 1st one was more interested in the behind the bar counter than doing follow-up with me on the food. Tasty burger, cheese cake with salty caramel was very delicious.

Eaten here twice in the past few months, once in the restaurant side and once in the bar side. Like a good restaurant, though unlike many in the HRM, the menu changes regularly. The food is always delicious, there are plenty of gluten free options,...and a wide variety of drinks. The service is also friendly, attentive, and quick. I would definitely recommend!More

They don't take reservations unless you have a good sized group as far as I recall.

Including wine I'd say about $60-70 per person.
