Nice ambiance, friendly staff and great food! A little on the pricey side when you first look at what's offered vs. the price on the menu, but the portion size and quality match the price in the end.

Booked reservations for 5 PM pre-hockey game and they were ready for us. Surprised to find Happy Hour appetizers for our light meal at that time. Had a great BC red wine at a very fair price - for the whole meal for that matter....More

Located on Beatty St. right opposite the entrance to BC Place offering a decent lunch spot before the Show! Average food (scampi not breaded) and expensive wine ($30 carafe) but the cheesecake was good and the coffee fresh. Guess convenience is what you pay for!More

I really liked this restaurant last year and looked forward to going back again. Unfortunately, the food is not so good now. The pasta was stuck together and my dish was pretty tasteless all round. It turns out they've changed the chef. Shame.More

We do have different genre of live jazz playing in the evenings. Some styles are for a listening audience and others lend itself for quiet conversations.
