Have been there several times, from just 2 people at lunch to 5 for dinner. The food is always good, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. A good quantity of food for a reasonable price.

Great for a couples dinner or out with friends - food is flavourful and ample! Location is a bit odd from the front entrance off Dunlap St but don't be fooled - once inside the mood is set.

This is my go to place for something fancy. The food is always amazing and I never leave disappointed or hungry. The beef tenderloin is to die for. No need for a knife just cut it with ur fork.
