Good dining.
Nice and quiet - no too loud music.
I had the garlic shrimp entree. Very good but surprised shrimp not peeled.
We live 5 hours drive north of you but would go back again next time we are in Toronto..

No steak knife, had to use butter knife, caeser salad was just lettuce, no dressing or anything else. the steak wasnt worth the price, it came with just meat and the side(fries), expected a lot more for the price.

My girlfriends and I had an amazing meal - all our tastebuds were tantalized! You cannot avoid the small plate menu - the onion bread was to die for!
Lovely ambience and the staff was very attentive. Would definitely recommend ~ we plan to go again!

Appetizers were amazing, mains were alright, I would consider just ordering a bunch of appetizers and not get mains! Service was awesome they were really sweet and welcoming.

We went on a Wednesday, at 7pm. The tables were nicely spaced due to Covid and everything was very clean.

We enjoyed $1 oysters, half price wine and a variety of other items. Everything was delicious! Every dish has a wonderful flavouring and choice of fresh ingredients.

Service was prompt, attentive, and friendly.

This is my second experience here, one prior to Covid, and it’s always been an enjoyable experience.

The ambience of the restaurant is really warm and welcoming.

Food was great. Lovely location.

Our server had a bit of a chip on this shoulder. We asked to switch a chair because it was a lot lower than the bench/table and was very uncomfortable and not conducive to conversation or to eat easily (especially with the noise levels) when we initially got there. He abruptly told us “no, you can’t switch chairs - you have to get permission from the front desk as the table next to you might be reserved because of the chair” this is fair, however, he should have gone to ask instead of asking the customer to get up and go ask and make a request. Thankfully, the gentleman cleaning the tables (Indian looking man) was very helpful and took the initiative to do so on our behalf and then allowed us to move to a move functional table.

The food was delicious and flavourful.
The noise level was a bit loud and the prices were on the high side too.
That being said, it was still a good experience.
The service was fantastic.

What an incredible and diverse menu! My family had beautiful, tender pork, octopus cooked to perfection, and side dishes of beautifully spiced legumes that highlighted the flavours of each dish. Would definitely go again!

We had our monthly women’s brunch here on Saturday and it was fabulous. The space was gorgeous, food was delicious, service was great, and the music was on point. It was somewhere where many of us had walked by but never actually tried. We’re glad we finally did.
