Working business dinner for 5. This is an excellent high-class restaurant. Decor is pleasant and relaxing. Staff is attentive and professional - no unnecessary hanging-around to chat. Food is expensive but good. Sommelier was a bit chatty but the wine selection was a good choice....More

Thanks gordoncr for the great review! We are glad you trusted our staff and kitchen in taking you outside of your comfort zone with the beef tartar! We hope your next evening with us is just as good (if not better than) the first.

i had a business dinner with 3 people. We opted out of the tasting menu and decided to order a selection of everything we liked and share. Probably the only downside was our waiter; drinks were slow, food was slow, missed a main course, utensils...More

The meal at Eighteen was superb. After a lovely amuse bouche of smoked salmon, the bread arrived at the table - a first-night experiment of the chef. It was called onion bread but had only the faintest flavour of onion, and it was totally luscious,...More

The front entrance is a large wood door, embedded into centuries old stone facade that has housed old schools, factories, and eventually re purposed into a restaurant, and a good one at that. I'm a simple guy, beer, steaks, fries, and even though you can...More

High quality food, service, ambiance, wine selection, etc. I love everything about this place and have been on multiple occasions. My only issue is that once I was served the wrong cut of beef. Otherwise a flawless track record!

We celebrated a birthday here, and completely enjoyed the food, service and elegant space. The room is renovated since I was last here, and gives a very sophisticated vibe. Expensive, but worth it for special occasions.
