Good Food

We don't eat here often but the food has always been good. It is a little pricy but nicely presented and good quality and flavour.

Enjoyed a meal in January 2016 and I have to say that, although a little pricey, the quality food and attention to detail was well worth it. My beef tenderloin was a little overcooked but, mouth watering and delicious in spite of the kitchen error. The waitress offered to replace it but, I declined based on enjoying it anyway. We...

I have visited this establisment a number of times now over the past 3 years with my friend as an annual, "must" place to meet up for our Christmas lunch. Returned with my husband this summer one evening when passing thru Oshawa on the 401 driving home from the Kawartha's. Now planning to take my sister real soon. An excellent... More

The best place in the east to get some oysters. Menu has been tweaked with basic twists to the previous dishes. Lobster bisque is a great addition. They have a few vegetarian dishes but I wish they would add more. Lucky for me I will eat the fish but it is slim pickings for my wife. Any meal can be... More

I had heard about this place by many people and being put in charge of my work Christmas dinner this was the first place and last place I tried. They were very quick to respond to my message and easily available to contact with the reservations. You always wonder if and how they can handle a bigger group. I would... More

The ambiance was relaxed with a hip decor which also included lovely Christmas decorations placed through the whole restaurant. The prices are on the upscale side so we (8 of us) were very pleased that the appetizers and dinner were ever so tasty. For me personally the PEI mussels and the Macedonian Pasta were my favourites. You can not go... More

My wife and I are very excited to have found our "place" for fine dining. We felt very welcomed by the owner as soon as we walked in and thoroughly enjoyed our date night. Our waiter was excellent and he ensured that we were looked after accordingly. My steak and my wife's seafood was top notch and cooked perfectly.... well... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our service, appetizers, dinner! The service was perfect, the food was well timed & absolutely delicious! We have been many times in the past & wondered why we had stayed away so long! We will not in the future....

Had a wonderful dinner to celebrate my Birthday with friends. This restaurant is one of my favourite places. The food is never a disappointment. We never feel rushed and service is always very good.
