The food is OK but it is a nice resto in a lovely location. The wait staff are mostly kids but while unsophisticated they do try hard. Good place but watch the prices.

Met some good friends here and it didn't disappoint. The location is wonderful, our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. The wine list had some nice BC wines and reasonable prices. Overall a good experience.

Service and menu always over deliver and the location and view spectacular. Suggest you reserve in advance as this is one of the most popular restaurants on the North Shore.

Have been there with someone who is gluten sensitive, and she things on the menu that satisfied her, however you should check with the restaurant directly to make sure this is still the case. Bon Appetit!!

No, we won't be having live music this year. It's just too small a venue for a band. We will, however, be having a special three course menu. Reservations are going quickly!
