This restaurant has a cool artsy vibe with delicious food. It's like walking into an art gallery. Every room has a theme. Our waitress was personable and very cheeky! I will definitely come back and recommend this to family and friends.

Service was very good and the food was also very nice. It is kind of expensive but it’s OK for a night out.

The best place for brunch. In the whole of North America, first time I had more than 6 snails in a juicy cheese dish. Soft, juicy snail. Cheese blended into spicy sauce, not dry, not hard, and just enough to cover the pieces. Great sauce!...More

good food and service, spacious and clean space. Quiet on a Wednesday night. Lots to look around. I had the pizza but it is not a menu item. Very fresh and tasty served with a good size salad.
