Pretty sweet looking atmosphere. Staff were friendly. Food my wife loved. Fancy restaurants are not really my thing but once in a while its neat to try out.

You go for the food, but back for the hospitality. They hire very well and great service can even overcome mediocre food.

The entire family loved this meal. The crusted asparagus and the coq au vin poutine appetizers were savoury. Everyone loved their mains (steak frites, lamb & escargot, Brie-Gorgonzola-bacon burger etc). We came for supper and the Festival of Lights. Great evening!

I went with friends to celebrate a friend's birthday yesterday. It was packed, but quickly they got us a table. Amazing poutine I had and also much food. The service was great and my friend even was given a dessert as a gift. Highly recommend.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
