a bit pricey for what you get, but a nice looking restaurant on the inside, but then that doesn't fill your tummy up

In Saskatoon for a conference and needed a place to celebrate a birthday and visit with an old friend.

The atmosphere in the resturaunt is elegant and relaxed. It was nice after a hectic day to sit in a very private booth.

Service - AMAZING. As a former server I have a high expectation. I was a little nervous when our server approaced. Judging by just appearances he looked young and awkward. Well he was young but other than that my fears need not be. He was 21 a student and incredibly charming. He managed a perfect balance of entertaining, sharing his wisdom and excellent service. Coutos on the PERFECT service. Serious, I'm hard to impress.

Dinner - We had Calamari to start and it was good. The sauce that accompanies it is a bit spicy but you like spice it was full of flavor. I had the shrimp and scallops in a thai curry, I enjoyed my dish. It was spicy as well, so I maybe over did it on my taste adventures. My partner had the pork tenderloin and it was off the hook! I think I could have eaten 3!

As we left it appeared as though we were the last to leave, an indication of an amazing experience that your night was just flew by swallowed up by the company, food and drink. We weren't rushed though we spent around 3 hours. The cost of dinner was what you expect to pay in a place like this, but worth every dollar from start to finish. Cocktail, Appetizer, Dinner, bottle of Wine and dessert (the full deal) was 140.00 plus tip for two.

Thanks IVY for an amazing night.

After waiting nearly 2 hours for our lunch, out of the 6 of us - 1 meal was eating temperature. No apologies, no nothing. Full pop on the bill. Portions were tiny, prices too high. Everything in the restaurant was falling apart or filthy. I can't believe they have any kind of reputation! I will never go back!

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.
