My BF had her bday here. Service/Food were average. Their menu was limited. Food tasted ok. A wee bit small but intimate. I would go back.

Visited again before a performance at Centennial Hall. Very convenient for events downtown.

We had reservations and were seated right away. Turned out we were 45 minutes early but they handled this without issue.

We received prompt and attentive service. Questions and special requests handled without issue. Water refilled promptly as glasses emptied.

Three of the party ordered the Church Key Burger and all reported it was very good. Interesting toppings caramelized onions, stilton cheese, organic arugula and tomato jam.

Another of the party had a beef cheek entrée which was almost like a stew. Beef was fork tender and the item was very well received.

Final item was the 8oz Ribeye. Steak was perfectly cooked and the garlic potato and mushrooms were a perfect accompaniment .

Everyone commented on the quality of their coffee.

Patio is very nice with a large awning so a nice location even on a rainy day.

We have been unable to get a table on earlier occasions as we had not made a reservation. Best to call ahead.

My wife and I ate here for lunch while in London. The place if charming and the food was wonderful. Staff was very attentive without making you feel rushed. The menu was quite varied and I only wish that we could have returned for dinner.

We had a quick lunch here last month. The menu was interesting, but the food did not live up to the written descriptions. We were on a short break during a long road trip, so couldn't partake of the wine and beer offerings, which were extensive and tempting. I am sure the food would have been improved by a nice pint of beer.
