Tess, our server, was lovely. Food was great and not expensive. Wine is good value for money too. Highly recommend this place.

Hadn't been here for few years so decided to visit again with friends. Luckily we were able to get a table in their dining area at the back which has kind of a cave like feel so it was a bit quieter for having a visit. The server was good but think she might have been new as we no... More

Decent food and good service however the prices keep going up and the portions keep getting smaller. The steak sandwich most notably. In the neighborhood of a $5 increase! Most chefs I know also refrain from using copious amounts of salt to season thier dishes. Its like more of a mask for the lack of flavour and quality ingredients.

We stop here regularly for lunch with friends and we join groups of friends for the occasional dinner. The restaurant and lounge are beautiful; interesting Canadiana decor. Service has always been quick and friendly.

How long does breakfast take??? Yes it was busy, but after an hour and a half! Really! The server was avoiding our table after repeatedly asking about our food. Go elsewhere!

Delicious steak and crab meal for dinner with friends. Steak was cooked to perfection just the way we like it. Excellent king crab legs. Veggies cooked just right. Hot butter didn't stay hot because candle flame was low. Mashed potatoes cooled very quickly too. We needed to ask for lemon and garlic and got sliced lemon and fresh chopped garlic.... More

The food is reliable, interesting and the staff friendly and efficient. They don't over-do it if you know what I mean.
