Yes, I asked for a vodka martini straight up, dry and burnt....and they knew what it was. Meal was fabulous as well. 4 of us ordered different things and we all were very impressed. This restaurant is on grade level in a hotel...we'll definitely go...More

Having a martini made the right way can make or break a night, dgray002, but I'm very impressed to hear that one of our bartenders has made you the best ever! Quite a compliment, and it's nice to know that the rest of the meal...More

This is fine dining at its best. Such beautiful presentation and great choice of dishes. Too bad many of the patrons couldn't be bothered taking more care with what they wore. Untucked shirt and suspenders down around ankles, really? Kind of an insult to the...More

Almost everything is better with truffle oil, isn't it, stomper1001? In all seriousness though, I will pass that comment on to our chef, as he always appreciates the feedback so we can fine tune what we do. Very glad you had such a great time...More

I'm told that the restaurant made the top 100 in Canada for 2017 and I believe it. The staff is very welcoming and professional. The food we had was outstanding. 3 of us ordered beef tenderloin, all to different standards and they were perfect. Our...More

This restaurant has lovely atmosphere and great service. It is high end (pricey) with a number of delicious selections on the menu. The food is served in sophisticated smaller portions. This spot is very good but not likely, in my opinion, to be a choice...More
