The building was amazing and the patio just as wonderful. I didn't have a coat but the heated floor kept me warm enough to remain outside as the sun went down. Just to let you know we are "foodies" so our expectations are high. We started out with cocktails from the lounge - very good, not too sweet and made with quality mixers. Our first course was crab cakes, tuna tataki, and the stone bread. The crab cakes were large and probably some of the best I have had. The tuna tataki was seared perfectly, ponzu was flavorful and the kim chi was a nice touch. The bread was devine.
Second course consisted of lamb lollipops, perfectly seasoned and grilled to medium rare and the demi glaze with fig and cherries was extremely good; the "Darmer's Daughter" which was cast iron grilled Chicken, and House Elk Sausage with artichoke hearts, capers and white wine butter - Very, very good; last were the coconut prawns. The prawns looked great but found them too sweet and slightly over-cooked which you wouldn't have known from the lightly golden color.
We finished with the creme brule and chocolate cake. The serving sizes were generous and the creme brule was probably the best I have had. The chocolate cake was good also.
The wine menu was vast and we chose a flight of white and red to pair with the food. So nice to have some choices.
The prices are what we expected and less than what you would pay in Vancouver. I see people complain about the pricing but you are paying for the atmosphere, service, and food that is made from scratch and not from a box. By the way, service was prompt and our server was also excellent.
Side note - if you want to help a restaurant serve you at their best, MAKE A RESERVATION so they can staff appropriately.
