Nice upscale neighbourhood restaurant. Good bar scene. Mostly regulars. Unfortunately we were sitting next to some loudly happy patrons. Excellent service. Reasonable wine list. The food was good. Had the calamari appetiser for my entrée. More than enough. Couldn't even finish. Next time I will want to eat in the restaurant, not the bar.

Casual and rustic atmosphere. Very helpful and courteous wait staff. Nice wine list, fairly prices. Something for everyone on the menu. From steak, to pork, to seafood, you can find something well prepared for your dining pleasure. The appetizers were all quite good(calamari, asparagus, steak fries). The stuffed pork chop was excellent, stuffed with apple and bacon. The deserts were... More

Nice, quaint little place. We made reservations far in advance. Upon arrival we had to wait in a crowded little area for our table to be ready. Staff were very nice and attentive. We were seated at a nice little table in the back. Ordered an appetizer, 2 sodas and a soup and salad. The soup, salad and drinks came... More

We live nearby and have gone to this restaurant several times. Food and service aware consistent and they have a great steak. I would have liked to have seen a little better variety on my last visit, but I do understand the farm to fork idea and it is an awkward time of year. Excellent wine list as well.....

Had to make a late call to the restaurant for a birthday dinner for my 87 year old mother in law and Rebecca said come on in I will hold your table. Arrived in a driving rain storm to a crowd of people but we were immediately seated. Service was very good and most attentive throughout the meal. At the... More
