Our meals were delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a piece of cod as I did last night. It was amazing. My husband ordered the duck breast and it, too, was amazing. We can’t wait to go back! Our server, Hannah, took such good...More

We were three couples enjoying a leisurely dinner Sunday evening. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The wine list is very broad, containing excellent Italian, French, Spanish and Canadian wine. We started with the Westcott Pinot Noir rosé which everyone loved. With the mains,...More

I’m not sure why chefs feel the need to re-invent traditional favourites like Eggs Benedict or Pancakes yet miss the mark to improve on the standard. The Eggs Benedict serving was sparse with no potato serving to accompany the EB a first time for that...More

Very expensive without a reason. I ordered a trout that was a small portion with vegetables, almost raw small potatoes for “unreasonable” 34 Canadian dollars. As desert the Vanilla cheesecake was the worst cheesecake I ever tried.
