We enjoyed our dinner at Tight. It's a cosy restaurant on four levels. Our table was on the top floor; that room felt intimate. Their barbecue ribs were not available so we both had the burger. It's massive and delicious and almost too big to pick up with your hands and eat. Most people used a fork and knife. The service was efficient and very pleasant and we conversed quite comfortably with our server. Too full for dessert unfortunately as we'd been looking forward to enjoying the Nanaimo bar. Price was reasonable. Would definitely recommend Tight to friends.

Pros: Good food, decent price and most of the staff is very friendly.
Cons: Our waiter was ok (not very friendly) but forgot one of our drinks and wine was super acid.

Had dinner here with 3 friends. It's a cozy environment, with dark woods, focused lighting on the tables but darker all around, which creates a sense of private space in the midst of a convivial atmosphere. The music is modern (think "Pumped Up Kicks") but soft enough to be mood setting yet not obtrusive. The one somewhat disconcerting aspect was that some of the tables have a shared cushioned bench between them, so that if both tables are full, some diners will be sitting back to back (possibly this is the inspiration for the name, Tight!). However, we were able to avoid the shared bench.

The service was a joy. Our server, Tonja, an aspiring actor (naturally!) was delightful--warm, attentive, humorous and honest about the menu choices regardless of price point, steering us to a uniformly outstanding meal. Among our favorites was the pappardella pasta with oyster mushrooms, fennel, baby spinach, truffle oil and parmesan--divine! Likewise, the crispy duck confit with caramelized red onions, potato mash and greens was mouthwatering. We had a delicious Montepulciano, recommended by our server, and finished by sharing the Pavlova dessert and the cheese plate with a fig walnut and an apricot ginger chutney. All wonderful.

The menu is a bit pricey, given the dollar exchange rate, but about what you'd pay at an excellent NY restaurant, and every bit as high in quality or more. It's also a fraction of what you'd pay at Noma or Geranium, and I strongly suspect a correspondingly greatly value.

This was one of those meals that linger in the memory for the completeness of the experience, ambience, service and food. Run, don't walk, to this one!

The atmosphere, service and quality of food are outstanding. We loved the comfortable setting, and the service we received was excellent. The prices are also very reasonable in what is an expensive city.
Make this place a destination that you visit!

We loved this AUD / CAD restaurant! We booked our reservation in advance as we were coming from the US and Scotland. My boyfriend had the mussels for an app, and the famous burger for the main course. I had the smoked salmon for the app and the cod for the main meal. All were great! We also had great service from our Irish waiter. I also needed to be gluten free/corn free/ mustard free and dairy free so these meals were safe for me. We also had 4 cocktails. I had 2 bellini specials and my boyfriend had the chocolate martinis. Great food, great service, good vibes, and a packed restaurant for a Sunday night.
