This looked like my kind of special lunch restaurant, but I was very disappointed in this place and my expensive chicken pot pie. The herb crust was tasty, but inside had hot and cold spots, and was pasty/gloopy instead of creamy. I ate half and...More

First time in Toronto and visited here on the recommendation of a work colleague. The cod tacos were tasty and the apple tart was super. I couldn't fault the quality of the food. What I did struggle with was the mismatch between the price of...More
