“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is a lovely little restaraunt tucked away in a great location. Unfortunately the day we had lunch here the food was just so so. The minestrone soup tasted strange - like uncooked beef, and the gnocci poutine (which sounded sooo tempting) were dry and tough. The mousssaka was "deconstructed" - leaving the eggplant tough and rubbery - and devoid of taste or pleasure. The sirloin salad was very good though, and our waitress was efficient and charming. Sorry, for the high price for this sad meal, we wont be back.

“Pretty good, but over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

The reason this place has so few reviews is that it incites little emotion. The food is pretty good but not super special. The service and ambience is very nice, but it has high end pricing.
I'm glad we tried it, as it's local to us and we may go back again, but it's not going to be a favorite place..

“Fabulous Valentine's Day Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

We each had the special dinner (I had the lamb and hubby had the beef tenderloin). Both were very very excellant. We also had the wine pairing which I would highly recommend. The service and atmosphere was also excellant. Will certainly return and would highly recommend.

“Good interesting food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

Took guests here when visiting Calgary because it was a great location for all of us to get to easily. I was very pleased that the service was good, food allergies easily accommodated, and the food was tasty.
