We were disappointed in this restaurant as we were expecting a fine dining experience. But there was no ambiance or atmosphere that was good for a romantic evening out and we found the restaurant to be very crowded and noisy. The food was ok but we certainly have enjoyed better meals in other restaurants. We were disappointed in the wine list. Not much Ontario wine choices. Service was ok but not we had finished our dessert before we received our coffees. We were placed against a wall even though we had a reservation on a recommendation of a local B and B. If you are looking for a romantic evening out for in a fine dining restaurant this is not the place to go. Perhaps this was my error and I should have read more information about this restaurant.

As soon as you walk in, you know you've found something special. The decor reminds me of a cafe in Paris I've been too - marble, silver, and white tones everywhere....with a surprise pink ceiling!

Service is efficient and pleasant - in fact, I would say the staff must be treated well because they really do know the specials (no reading from notes) and seem to love their jobs. One person at my table picked a certain glass of red wine with her meal, and the server politely suggested a different choice that would compliment her meal more. The match was perfect. This is a small example of how they strive to make your meal enjoyable.

The food - in one word, superb. The menu is a mix of classic french dishes and dishes that push the boundaries of french cuisine and into modern fare. Local ingredients are featured in most dishes. The four of us enjoyed all corners of the menu. The only "blip" were the scallops - being extremely picky, we felt they needed more salt. They were exceptionally well cooked, however.

Overall, we enjoyed our meals immensely. When you travel to a small town, you do not always expect to find such a gem. Our lawyer recommended this place, and we have to say, she was right on the money. Whenever we find ourselves in Collingwood again, we will make a point of returning.

I like the place, and the terrace during summer time...even the cheese Mac is delicious ( i stole some from my daughter's plate).When you are visiting, pls go upstairs to the ateliers of several local artists.Worth to visit.
