Some friends and I met up here around 9pm on a Friday evening for some dessert and coffee. Beautiful space, very inviting. Coffee is served via individual french presses. It's quite strong and a little bitter, so you'll probably want some extra cream or sugar for it. We went with the donuts that's served with nutella, cream cheese and a... More

We were lucky enough to sit on the side patio area for lunch when we last visited in April! Food was good and service great!

We spent the weekend in Carp and didn't want to get in the car to drive to places to eat. We came here for the tapas and it didn't disappoint! The charcuterie plate win half cheese and half meat was very generous. The steamer pot had the one of the best mussels. Again the portion were very generous. Just these... More

I took the wife and kids to Corktree cellers, and wow, this place is incredible! The service was fantastic! Our server, her name escapes me, but she was the one with the beautiful owl tattoo on her arm, took fantastic care of us. The food was out of this world! I had the fish tacos and I must say, they...

Intimate friendly place with excellent food. We didn't try the wines but they are supposed to be great. Had a solid family meal that all enjoyed. Burgers and platters and it was all good. Will return. A very good place.

We really loved our visit!! After reading the reviews, I was eager to try this place. The atmosphere was perfect for what I wanted- a slow, romantic meal. Our server was excellent. She guided us both in our choice of wine flights- sauv blanc for me and cabs for my husband. We had the charcuterie and cheese plate ($25), where... More

This was a really nice place to have dinner! The food was good and the wine choices were wonderful. I brought my two tween kids and we were all made to feel very comfortable there. We had the calamari which was excellent! The food is a little pricey, but had we known we would have arrived a little earlier for... More

What a cute little restaurant/bistro. There were five of us so we sat outside and moved a couple of tables together with the help of willing staff. The Southwestern Chicken panini sandwich was wonderful. I don't usually eat the whole sandwich but I did this one. Others had the burger (great)
