Thomas was an excellent waiter who was very attentive throughout our meal. We never felt rushed and enjoyed our meals. There were 6 of us and everyone was impressed that the kitchen was fine with making everything according to our preferences. The vegetables were al...dente and the sauces were delicious. We hadn't been to this restaurant in a couple of years and intend to visit again soon.More

Nice little bistro on Lake shore Rd serving tasty Mediterranean food. Loved their Mussels in marinara and Grilled Salmon. Food was simply amazing. Too bad restaurants are all lockdown. Miss dining in. Take out for now. I dont like to ordering through 3rd party delivery...companys. They take a huge cut.More

Wonderful restaurant to patronize, especially during covid Pre-covid we dined here every couple of months or so and was always impressed with the quality of the food. This was our first time with take-out and we still thoroughly enjoyed our meals. They were tasty as...ever and hot! These days it’s a rarity to have hot takeout food, but we really appreciate that it was!More

I really like their new takeout menu and we ordered from it for the first time last week. We were very impressed with the value and are going to order again this week.

We attended an intimate wedding at this restaurant today (only 10 people). The staff were gracious and attentive. The meal was excellent - caesar salad, chicken marsala and Tartufo for dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere and the service - thanks Rachel!! Would...highly recommend!More

Interesting reaction to a very disappointing dinner. So, I ordered the rack of lamb special which only gave 2 chops and 2 shrimps. The lamb was ordered medium to the rare. When they showed up one was medium and was very thin. The other one...was "okay". When I told the server the one was completely unacceptable he went back to the chef. He finally came back and said the lamb was the lunch special and they didn't have any left. So, my choice was a replacement of nothing I wanted or $10 off. I was so fed up with the server going through the various excuses of why they couldn't satisfy the order re lamb I finally just asked him to leave. When I was leaving I addressed the chefs personally (I understand they actually own the restaurant). Initially one of them told me they had told the server to offer me a full refund. I said to the server (who was standing right there) that he never offered us that. He denied it and said he had offered a replacement (not quite the same????) By the time I tried for the 4th time to explain how screwed this situation was I gave up. Not only that, but the chef basically dismissed me...no respect whatsoever.More

My husband and I returned to this gem as everything is amazing. Food, Service &Atmosphere are way above average. Our Server Rachel is always so friendly and on top of her game although she runs the dining room and patio alone. She isn’t rushed (even...if she was you’d never know as she’s a true professional) and gives impeccable service. We went on a Groupon the last time- what a deal 2 course lunch for 2 for $35! It was beyond delicious. First off the dining room is delightful with the white linen table cloths - so fresh, bright and clean. I had a wonderful beet,goat cheese, pine nuts, and greens salad with a balsamic dressing for starters which was perfect. My husband has the fish cake. It was served on a bed of greens, nice size, flaky fish and crunchy batter the way it should be he loved it. Then as our entrees I had the seafood linguine and my husband the Veal Marsala. My linguine was piping hot and loaded with seafood- shrimp, muscles and calamari in a lovely light red sauce. It was to die for and I ate every last bite. My husband has just as impressed with his Veal Marsala - very tender veal and the Marsala sauce was perfect served with roast potatoes and roasted root vegetables. He said it was excellent and would definitely order this scrumptious dish again. There is a nice selection of house wines and my husband had a half litre of a Cab from Argentina that he said complimented his meal perfectly. It was a delightful lunch and our 3rd VISI back.... it won’t be our last.More

I was treated to a delicious lunch recently at this mainly seafood restaurant. We were presented with two set price menus but there are à la carte choices as well. One was Lobster Festival which I ordered from and was not disappointed. There were so...many interesting choices of dishes it was difficult to choose, all reasonably priced. We were three altogether and everyone enjoyed their choices. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful and all COVID precautions were taken. We chose to dine inside although patio tables were available. To sum up, delicious food at reasonable pricing. I would love to return to this delightful restaurant.More

First time coming here although live in the area. Not sure why we took so long to check it out. During Covid, felt very safe and watched a thorough cleaning of the table. Professional and courteous server, Thomas was excellent. Food delicious - butternut squash...soup, stuffed chicken, and even the coffee was superb. Honestly have visited the other local restaurants but will not go back to them now that we have found this place. Highly recommend.More
