First time at this restaurant and was VERY impressed. Food on the tasting menu was creative and tasty. The nine-course tasting menu was just the right amount of food. Service was good; a little more information about wine pairings would have made it great. But...More

We tried Colborne Lane during Summerlicious and thought it was good, but not great. The restaurant's interior was nice and modern. Our server was really nice and professional. The food was a little inconsistent: we ordered a few medium-rare steaks, of which, one came back...More

It had been many years since we first visited Colborne Lane. We remembered a great meal and an eclectic menu. In many respects little has changed since then. The room is very simply furnished - best described as modern minimalist - with bare floors, dark...More
