Odd location for a restaurant. Food was adequate but certainly not restaurant quality in appearance or taste. Have never had white "rice pilaff" with corn. Servers very nice but not very experienced. Rather amusing watching the bartender try to pour a glass of wine to the exact measurement. Let's just say it was well aged by the time she finished. Not sure I would order a cocktail here but the bottle of wine was good and kudos for the nice wine glasses. Dessert was very good but I'm pretty sure was not baked on site but nice presentation. Good coffee. Don't think I would recommend or rush back. Sorry!

Breakfast Saturday morning. Soothing decor- although strange with modern furniture and victorian lights? First impression, really great attentive and friendly wait staff- Michelle K was excellent. Ordered Eggs Bennie with potatoes (8.95+ 2.95) and Pulled Pork Sandwich with baked beans (7.95 + 2.95) and coffee and tomato juice 2.95. Total 34.00 plus tax and tip. Coffee amazingly good. Strange menu- not sure the breakfast menu does the restaurant any service- why is a southern pulled pork sandwich on a crossiant on the menu? If there, it should have been on freshly baked bread open face with sunny side eggs on top. Beans from a can- really? Why basic eggs bennie- what about some salmon bennie? What about any fresh fruit garnish? All that said- eggs bennie good flavour but way too little sauce- and pulled pork good flavor on soggy crossiant . Dinner menu looks more suitable. Normally- we would return. However- the restaurants owner ruined the entire experience and we will never return. She was screaming rudely and loudly (seriously) at the staff in front of customers? Really very disturbing and insulting. Very very poor poor management skillset- train your staff BEHIND closed doors- and treat them with some respect. I would expect this restaurant will not last long.

I went here with a party of 7 for dinner. They were very accommodating for us and our noise level, since we didn't book in time to reserve the private room. The food has a nice range of prices and a good variety without spreading too thin. I had the goat cheese app, beef tenderloin, and pumpkin creme brulee for dessert. It was all exceptionally delicious. Our server was very patient with us and incredibly helpful and friendly. We will definitely be going back here!
