Love the food, staff and ambiance. The Westdale location is now closed:( I hope they reopen a new location as I would travel wherever they are to eat there

Friendly staff, intimate bistro. Tried Koosh pasta, full of mushrooms, excellent. Friends had caesar salads, good. Daily soup had lamb broth and nicely spiced. Would go again.
