There are so many restaurants that serve great food. I think the difference between making a dinner extra special is the attention paid to customers by management and staff.
The dinner was really great on all accounts and we will definitely return because of that. However there were a few irritating glitches; our server never gave her name, my drink came in a dirty glass (was returned and replaced), this should never have been allowed. We were celebrating a birthday and made server aware of that, unfortunately it was never acknowledged by the establishment. Would not have hurt them to make my friend feel special on her special day. I also noticed that portions were quite inconsistent. Same dish brought out 3 times and all very different. Unfortunately mine was a fraction of someone else’s, this makes no sense with such a huge discrepancy. Almost seemed like they just were running out and decided to downsize. The restaurant is very cool, beautiful and airy. The kitchen isi spot on with food quality. Just a few little misses would have made it really much more special. Also Bang Bang ice cream is directly next door for a great dessert.

You know when you have a feeling that a place works naturally? This is the feeling I had on this place last night. The host was polite and efficient. The bar crew was nice and helpful. It was possible to see the Chef hardly working at the kitchen and it was a beautiful team work. Everyone seems to know their own rule and everyone works hard and silently. And the food... astonishing. One of the best pastas of my life (lobster and shrimp pasta - the sauce: shower of flavors).
I wholly recommend this place. I tried to talk to the Chef when I was leaving but he had already gone. I wished I could congratulate him for the beautiful job his clients can watch when we are there.

You have to try the lobster mac and cheese if you go here. I loved the oysters too, but this was my favourite dish. Excellent service in a very nicely designed restaurant. Zak and Vero took terrific care of our party, and I really appreciated the chef coming out to say hello. We went early - around fiveish, so getting a seat was not an issue mid week, but it filled up fairly quickly so I would recommend a reservation from my experience.

I ate here with a customer of mine and we had the calamari and also the venison for starters, both were delicious. We also had the Lamb racks as our main course which was really good. The bartender was very friendly and he made sure that we always had water and the atmosphere in the restaurant was great overall. Will surely visit again.

I love this place, and try to visit every time I'm in Toronto. I've only ever had excellent experiences with the food start to finish, as well as the service. It's also a great place to just sit at the bar and have drinks.

Our visit was on a Tuesday when they had buck-a-shuck oysters, cheap lobsters (I think it was about $20, don't remember exactly), and half price wine. YES PLEASE to all. The oysters were actually nicely shucked, not haphazard empty-of-seawater-and-love that you often get for much more money. The lobster was perfectly cooked. My friend's foie gras was spectacular. See you next time, Boehmer.
