We had visited this resaturant a few years ago and returned because the food was really nice. Things have changed! To start, we walked up at 6:30 requesting a reservation. The earliest (&last time) available was 8:45 - we could have been seated within 20 minutes as a walk up then, but we were not hungry. When we returned , there were several parties waiting , many with unimpressed faces. We found they were running minimum 1/2 hour behind. We struck a conversation with a couple that was just leaving. They shared that their experience was just ok- cold food, mediacore taste and slow service. We thought we would tough it out and perhaps they were just picky people, but no they were exactly right! We were seated 45 min after our resveration time. The price is not worth the food nor the service here. We opted for the $63 prix fix Valentines dinner. My fiance had the grilled veal tenderloin medallions which was good and warm- not hot. I had the charbroiled 6oz filet mignon which was tasteless and room tempature with raw sweet potato chunks. Having all the delays I was so hungry I ate it! I did tell the server but nothing was ever done with the bill! I didn't feel like fighting I just wanted to rescue the rest of the evening with my fiancé , after all I was on a mini vaca. I'm glad they couldn't ruin the wine which was nice eventhough it was triple the price @ LCBO. Yes our visit was on a 'holiday' , but a well managed restaurant would have had a better handle on the all of the issues. Sorry Terrapin, the only thing gourmet about this experience was the price!
We do not plan on returning - we'd rather stay home and spend the money at a local restaurant that values our business.
