The food here is outstanding! We loved the concept of sharing plates, the more you get to try the better! We had the poutine, beef tartar and the duck cannelloni! Everything was delicious! We can't wait to go back!!

Just a great place to hang out and peck at deliciously comfy concoctions, with a fireplace to boot. The dishes try to be low-brow but are some of the most creative renditions of old-time classics.
Not to miss.

Innovative, unique food in a great atmosphere. Must try the duck cannelloni and trio of masons for dessert. Worth a repeat visit. Highly recommended. Not super family friendly but they tried to accommodate as best as they could with a simple pasta dish for our four year old and some paper and a pen.

What a great little neighbourhood restaurant. Very relaxed atmosphere, friendly laid-back staff but very serious cuisine. Loved the sharing ethos with dishes arriving when ready, works really well for a couple but maybe not for a large group. And I agree with other reviewers that the tables really are packed together, although I didn't find it particularly intrusive. I'm nit-picking - the food was delicious and very imaginatively presented. Desserts (served in mason jars) a slight let-down, although the rhubarb crumble was as good as I've tasted. Not the cheapest, but given the quality of the food, reasonable. Would I go back? - definitely.

Food, service and ambiance all worked so well together. Awesome bourbon sour and the best brisket I have ever had, anywhere. Octopus was really unique - in a really good way.
