No Rush, excellent food and service. I had my retirement dinner here with a group of ten. Wait staff left us alone at the appropriate times but we're always nearby when we needed them.

Had dinner in the bar area (the original building in the school). Love the atmosphere with the beautiful exposed beams. My starter was their lobster bisque and my main was the sea scallops. My husband enjoyed the beef barley soup and lobster risotto. Food was excellent as was the service.

We got a nice table beside the fireplace for our dinner. Service was good, friendly staff. Steaks are good and priced appropriately for what you would expect. This is the place to go in Markham for a romantic dinner.

This place is always fantastic. Of course it's pricey, but that's why we go there for a business meeting. It's not loud, the service is fantastic, and the food is always on point.
