“Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and came here for a nice dinner. Our three younger children were not made to feel unwelcome (but make no mistake - this is a fancy place). The decor is very modern and clean, which we love! Our server was polite, but not particularly friendly. He still did a good job though. You really want to come here on a beautiful sunny day! We unfortunately came on a rainy day and could not sit on the patio to enjoy the AMAZING koi and waterlily pond! Such a shame, because we are only in town for a week. One word of advice: do NOT order the steak bites. I have never had a more disgusting appetizer, with large chunks of fat left on the steak, and an overly salty Asian sauce. The poutine is also just so-so, with not enough cheese and too much (again, overly salty) gravy. The beef tenderloin, however, is a MUST. Absolutely melts in your mouth. The dessert menu was surprisingly uninspired. I mean, ice cream sundaes? Donut holes? At a fancy place like this? We usually look forward to dessert, but took a pass this time.

“Twice for dinner”

Very good all around.
Nice choices on the menu. Had the salmon one night and filet mignon the other night. The caesarsalad was also good.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

The food here was delicious. We had steak bites and yam fries... I would return here just for the steak bites alone. The waiter did a great job too.

“Amazing food!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner twice here during our weekend stay - it was outstanding! The service was great, quick, efficient and accurate. Their patio overlooks the large pond at the Coast Hotel which is almost covered in Lillypads which blossoms close once the sun sets, it is also filled with very large koi, ducks and turtles.
The Steak Bites are awesome! Their burgers are also awesome as is their butter chicken and calamari and their lettuce wraps. Pretty much everything on their menu is great!! Can't go wrong.

“Lovely setting, good food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when all the tables were booked on the dining patio and so we ended up on the bar patio. The table was very intimate and cozy with cedar trees on two sides and a lily pond with turtles, koi and ducks on the third (the entrance to the patio was on the fourth). The first time we visited we shared the China Town Lettuce Wraps, Steak Bites and Fish Tacos. The second time it was the burger and butter chicken. All the food was very tasty, but my particular fabourite was the Steak Bites. And the servers on both occasions were very attentive.
