“Insulting”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

An absurd encounter this evening. We arrived via limo for my husbands birthday. Hoping to have a cocktail before heading home. We were greeted by the hostess who stated to us that she would check on availability of a table for six ( we had just come from dinner at vin room which was great). She never came back but a red head wearing true religion jeans came over to tell us that we were not welcome as we had had too much to drink. Sure, we had a bottle of wine with dinner but we were not by any means not deserving of a glass of wine. The red head was not tactful and it was evident that he was hoping to shut the bar down. Instead of telling us this, he was rude and insulting.

“"Established"”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Great curb appeal and a nice stroll through the fireplaced patio to enter the restaurant!
Met with enthusiasm and had a reserved dual semi-circular booth arrangement in front of the indoor fireplace.
Appetizers were mostly seafood--but a very nice cut meats and cheeses platter.
Calamari, oysters, house tar-tar were delicious. Prosecco was excellent and creamy.
Chose the "prisoner" red wine from Napa--2011--------excellent!
And proceeded to enjoy their Combination cheese fondue with various meats & veggies.
Specialty house dessert was served and enjoyed. (Birthday)
And always remember to request the House Specialty cocktail---"the SHAFT", as a
palette stimulator!
P.S. Ravioli was over the top!!
Great food and beverage menu. And service was well matched.

“Prime pork”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Stumbled upon this place by chance when in town for the stampede. Nabbed a table outside and had one of the best starters we had in a two week Canadian break. Something called a Bucket of Bacon. Clearly and on name alone this was going to be a very good thing. Main course also good but the desert fondue was a little under-whelming. We may have caught it at the end of a long fortnight of stampede action. Very good-looking waiter probably got a bigger tip than they should have but who said life is fair? ;-)

“Excellent food, good service”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We had dinner at the living room once and really enjoyed it! Great food, excellent service and a nice wine list. Go try there chocolate fondue. Its to die for!
The only negative thing we had was...we had drinks at the bar after our meal. And the bartender didn't really now what she was doing. At least she said she was new. But it didnt help. The cocktails were not the best.
But all in all a great evening.
