It is great space ! Interesting but not what you'd expect for a corporate cocktail party.
Food stations were excellent - served apps great . People liked the intimacy of the property for conversation, fine apps and beverage .

We keep trying this place. Probably our fifth or sixth time being here. It has a great ambiance and a good design and is a very nice interior restaurant. Where the place falls down is the food. It seems like the chef almost tries too hard. The dishes are not balanced and they are reaching. The “classics” are from the early 2000’s. The deep fried sushi rolls are so old. the chef needs to move on. The scallops which just hit the menu were excellent. The tuna was also good. The special grouper was confused and overwhelmingly unbalanced. To much vinegar and too sour. Ceasear salad was good. I hope they can right the ship. A good spot.

Thank Steve A

we came for Londonliscious and had dinner upstairs in an intimate smaller room. We were greeted as soon as we entered the restaurant by Vince, the owner. He took our coats and seated us upstairs. Reservations are suggested because this place is in demand especially during this special event. There was still lots of choice on the menu for an app, entrée and dessert. Our server was very knowledgeable about the wine that we ordered and he was attentive , friendly and fast. his name is Matt (, great server) The food is excellent and priced fairly for a top restaurant. The portions are generous as well. I would recommend the duck confit risotto and the seafood linguine.

Was looking forward to a special meal, but disappointed. Mussels appetizer was still raw, despite shells being open, and the one that I tried was still slimy and left a bad taste. Server took 20 minutes before checking on us, did not seem at all concerned about the state of the mussels. Entrée of fish was nothing special, with minimal flavour, was not offered pepper, although guests at other tables were.
This place is overpriced for the quality of food and service.
