Our family has enjoyed our lunches on the rooftop this month. It's the perfect place to spend an hour lunch or dinner. Gorgeous view, delicious food and really great service. We'll certainly be back!

We booked a table for 8 people for 6pm in advance and confirmed the day of arrival. We explained that we had a show at 8pm, so we would need fairly quick service. They suggested sitting in the bar area to ensure that. We all...More

If it's a nice day, head over. Great view of City Hall and it's square. The table took 45 minutes to get so I suggest getting on the waiting list before you are starving! Popular patio when the weather is great. Our server, Ikram I...More

We got there late after visiting Fort Henry (around 11 pm) and we got a table in the middle of a hallway between the bar and the kitchen so people were bumping into us very often. The food and service were ok but not up...More

Friendly service, nice buzzing environment, so-so food. Pretty consistent with the two locations I tried in Ottawa. My kid likes the burger kids meal so we keep coming back. Plus there regular promos for purchases of gift cards, so at the end ok value overall.

In my opinion I guess we Kingstonians are getting tired of the same old high priced fast food. We have a lot of restaurants in Kingston, unfortunately about half of them are the same...different names but same quality and... More
