We live in Saskatoon and consider this our favorite restaurant. It is upper casual, but also more formal dress is common. One feels relaxed, and service has been excellent. The Lounge has identical menu and pleasant in every way. The bar tender, George, is terrific - as is the owner, Curtis. He is usually on site and will often thank you as a newcomer, as he does with us as repeat customers. The wine is very good value, with good selection.

Great food, never been disappointed for lunch or dinner. Really nice room for private gathering for a small group. Also great for after-work drinks and appertizers.

The location and atmosphere of this place is great. We found it on a recommendation from a colleague. The food was very good. Unfortunately, there was little attention to detail. The tablecloths in our section were all extremely wrinkled, and very little care seem to have been taken in set-up. It made the whole experience a 'little less', and every time we looked down we commented that we felt like someone had left their newly washed bedsheet on the table. The server was okay, but seemed a bit flustered at times, and was hard to find when there were issues with not having received what was ordered, etc. With a little bit of sharpening around the edges, this would be a great experience, as the food is very good. But for the price, we also expect the service elements.

Actually the food and service was quite good right up to the point where they forgot one of our main course orders. Unfortunately it was a MW lamb rack so the rest of us were done by the time it cam out. They did the right thing and removed it from the check though. There was a party room with all ladies right next to our booth which was also very distracting give this is a upscale restaurant. I noticed there was a private room in the back with doors that can close, perhaps the party should have been in there.
