One of the best dinner I had during my stay in America. This restaurant is considered to be expensive, however I found this to be completely value for money considering the service and the best food they serve. I ordered the Salmon dish and no doubt that it will remain as one of the memorable dish of the trip.

Birthday dinner was really good. Great pasta. Really rich flavors with a wonderful play on spices. Had lobster ravioli in cream sauce. Next time want to try tortellini with Italian Ham.

The crab cakes, filet and asparagus were fabulously done. My server Zach was attentive and answered all my questions. I will visit again when I am in town.

Came on a Thursday night, many open tables, a little hesitant at the entrance, it didn't seem that inviting. Blown away by the food and service! 5 stars! Just try it, won't be disappointed.

Others have called it too expensive and over-rated. We were grateful to find it in downtown BC where there is no other place to eat. When we saw wild caught salmon we knew we were in a good place. It was delicious, beautiful and a great place to have a leisurely lunch. Good beer and wine menu. Service matched our... More

I love the atmosphere of this restaurant, though some will not since the brick walls and wood floor create quite a bit of clatter. I think of it as the Maxwell Smart "cone of silence" because the only conversation you can actually hear is the one at your own table. Bliss. Food and service terrific too. Wish I could remember...

Great food but expensive. Presentation was very unique. Cream of mushroom soup is the best I have ever had! Very nice for a special occasion.

We brought my in-laws here for my mother-in-law's birthday. They're world-travelers and foodies, so we wanted it to be great. Malia did not let us down. My husband got the halibut, and I wanted to steal it! But I loved the mushroom fettuccine, which I got with scallops. OH MY! So good! The salads were crisp and simply delicious. My... More

We did not eat at this restaurant. But we did get a chance to look over the menu. Based on that, this is number on on our list of Fine Dining, the next trip to battle Creek.
