This was a great place to bring a small child. Mom and Dad could have drinks and gourmet hot dogs while our son could munch on french fries and his own hot dog. The cocktails we had were delicious with a great beer menu too....More

I waited longer than I hoped to try Senate for the first time, but it was well worth the wait. The atmosphere is cozy and small. The hours are also non-traditional, so be sure to plan your visit in advance and give yourself plenty of...More

Great food, but limited menu. Poutine was out of this world. Great location on the park and nice patio. Lively and lots to do. After dinner, went to the adjacent park and let kids play. Will return!

Met friends there on a Thursday night. Only a short wait for a table. Great service! Had one dog each and a shared order of truffle fries for a full meal. Can't wait to take the family.
