Never let down whenever we've eaten here. Always so delicious and pretty reasonable prices for the quality of the food.

Had a great meal for a special occasion. Expect Big City pricing. Not a place that I would recommend to local friends but for a special event it fits the bill.

We came here for a business dinner, and in general this is where we entertain out of town visitors. It upsets me to write negatively about a Kingston restaurant that traditionally has been very reliable. They were very disorganized I’m sorry to say. Running very...More

Great lite bites with great views of the harbor. Great service, selection of food and drinks. Beautiful space to dine and relax. Even if you are not staying at the hotel I would recommend this restaurant.

There are much more cosy and quality restaurants to dine at. Skip this one. Food quality only average but prices off the roof. Have to walk through a car garage to get to it. Not at all appealing and hacks your appetite, actually. The only...More

Not cheap but the food and service are almost always worth the cost. I suggest you make a reservation and request a window side table for a nice view of the harbour downtown past the Martello Tower to Royal Military College.

It was a pleasant dinner in this exclusive restaurant in Kingston. Great food with a good wine list. Waiters were extraordinarily friendly and this makes the difference. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We do offer a corkage fee of $20.00 per bottle for wines. They must have the official band of a winery. They cannot be a brew your own. If you are making a reservation please advise that you are planning on bringing in wine.
