4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

this was a very good place to eat, the oysters waere fantastic and my seafood cheesy pasta was so yummy! only bummer was that 2 glasses of wine was 30.00 dollars. Be prepared to "treat yourself" because this place is cha-ching!

“A comfortable place to chat, dine and relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Distillery District promotes Christmas Market and we joined the crowd and went there to experience the festival. Came to this restaurant without any expectation.
The staff was friendly, decor was unpretentious.
Their Sunday prime rib was a very good deal - tasty beef and roasted perfectly. A few choices of oysters to sample. Everything was fine with one exception: the three types of vinegar that came with the oysters were too sweet. .

Food was good. Waiters were knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. Upbeat atmosphere. They knew we were going to the Soul Pepper Theatre and got us out in good time.

“Great place for a meal before a play”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went out for light seafood dinner before a play at Soul Pepper. Arthur, our server, treated us wonderfully, and coached us into the seafood platter and a great wine pairing. We finished with enough time to go for a brisk walk through the distillery district,which was a perfect way to liven ourselves up before the show.
