Such a cozy little restaurant! Makes you feel like you’ve been transported to the roaring 20s with their grand solid wood bar. Great cocktails and even greater food, the poutine is to die for! And not to mention their house-ground burgers, SOOOO juicy and delicious!

Pizza was tasty and so was the side salad. Service was efficient but not really friendly. Decent beer selection.

Good food in an atmospheric brick and dark wood interior. However, entrees were pricy given that there were no sides, salad or bread. That said, the risotto was outstanding. The attitude was a bit condescending in a dismissive sense: hard to explain.

We were so disappointed when we sat down to what we thought would be a fun, pub-style restaurant. The menu, although quite varied, was difficult for all four of us. The food, although well prepared, was a bit esoteric, not the comfort food that we...More
