Well if you like Steak Frites for toddlers then you’ll be satisfied - otherwise you’ll be very hungry afterward. The service was excellent but after $128 spent on dinner and drinks, my wife and I made a sandwich when we got home.

My husband purchased the Chef's Tasting menu dinner for two through Groupon. We enjoy having meals we could not easily, if ever replicate at home. The Chef's Tasting offers samples such that while it's a six course dinner, we were sated rather than stuffed. The...More

My family and I love this restaurant, but hate when we’re forced to sit in the back room (where there’s the most seating). It’s totally outdated and way too dark. My parents both have to turn on their phone flashlights, it’s such a shame. Turn...More

community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or
night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its
thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more
relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection
of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
