I came here for a Bridal Shower on November 4, 2018. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were super friendly and efficient. I really enjoyed every moment of it. THE CREME BRULE was AH-MAZING!

This is a delightful French/American restaurant with excellent food and service. One of the prettiest restaurants I've ever been to without being pretentious. Can's wait to go back! Try the sesame crusted asparagus as an appetizer!

A beautiful historic building in the heart of the Distillery District of Toronto. We opted for 'small plates'. I ordered the tiger prawns with the speciality fries which were delicious. The waiting staff were super helpful and friendly. A great lunch in a beautiful setting.
