“Great vibe and service”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Excellent craft beer selection...great servioce and attitude even if you just pitch....homemade pasta and great steaks and sauces...a real "local" for us in this neck of the woods but a place you can confidently take ou-of-towners to and not be embarrassed!

“Wasted opportunity”
Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Great venue, nice decor - warm and rustic. Food however is seriously average. Looks like the owner has lost interest in the place, which is a shame. This place could be great, given the location in an affluent residential suburb it could be a local favorite, packed every day. Instead it's plain mediocre, and will be forgotten.

“Mixed bag”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic starters - steak tartare and chicken liver parfait. Absolutely delicious. Great start but then the mains were rather average. Pizza not great, seared tuna was lukewarm but the pork neck was good. Lovely ambience and great venue. They need to pull their socks up though. My mom had off calamari there recently and good seems to be slipping.

Great service and lovely venue! Bread is tasty, food always good (especially the potato skins and ANY pizza) and there is a good wine selection
