This place is just so hard to beat. from the moment we entered the staff were wonderful, the ambiance is just fantastic, my pre dinner drink was masterfully mixed and the tasting menu was to die for, for the light drinkers out there beware if you have the suggested wines as the combination can be breathtaking! If you are looking for a romantic place to eat and you are in the area this is a must!

It's worth the expense as the meal and service were excellent! We were staying in the hotel, and didn't want to go back into town, and we weren't disappointed.

The scallops had a crusted salt topping. It was way too salty The beef tenderloin was also too salty. I heard another patron also complain about too much salt on his beef tenderloin. I could not finish even one quarter of the meat and left still hungry. On the other hand my wife's meal was fine. The staff were nice and apologetic but couldn't make up for such a disappointment I can't imagine how this could have happened in a restaurant that has received rave reviews from others

Anticipated an intimate setting. Not so! Two parties of ten were very loud for this small room.
Menu selection is VERY limited and, of course, expensive.

The place is so intimate, it looks as though almost every table is in a private dining room. The food was outstanding and service even better. We actually really enjoyed the coffees at the end of the meal, and found out that they support a Calgary roaster. Upon asking further, we found out a lot of their produce and ingredients are locally and sustainably sourced where possible. It is expensive, but worth every penny.
