Food was for the most part cold. It also could have used a bit more flavouring. Not the best meal we have ever had, but passable

Both my friend & I had curry rice bowls with chicken, they were dry, no flavor, tasteless!
I have had it there before & it came in a nice curry flavored broth,

The weather was not perfect for outdoor dining, but we were prepared.
Although our orders were not filled as originally requested, we all enjoyed the meal we received. Staff was very attentive.

Our server was unaware of the soup of the day. She told us it was mushroom and cream of cauliflower which I ordered. When she brought our whole meal out she informed me that she was incorrect so I changed it to a caesar salad. I had also asked for gravy for my french fries. I was already finished my fish and waiting for the gravy when the salad arrived. When the gravy arrived, I was already done the rest of my lunch and it wasn't really a gravy, it was like a tomatoe au jus, not like a gravy at all. I barely touched it and when the bill came I saw that I was charged $4.00 for it. Overall our server was pleasant and apologetic but I wasn't impressed for the price.

I took an out of town guest for brunch to eat there because of the good reputation for brunch & the view. Our reservation was at 11:15 & there was no brunch, just the basic lunch menu. Both our meals were poor to average.
We were also left waiting inside for at least 10 minutes before being seated at our table. They could have then have told us brunch wasn't available then & we could have gone else where.
Not impressed at all with our experience!

Great food, great location and great service. Our party of 5 had a request for tacos.
The chef agreed to make them for dinner for us. They were great.
Our server Noah was attentive, and charming. It made for a very memorable evening with visiting family.

The entire experience was outstanding; we were early for our reservation but were seated without any delay and our server was pleasant and accommodating. We took our time to order, our food was brought in a timely manner and we enjoyed a leisurely dining experience.

Everything was great and we will be back!

The hostess was wonderful.
The food was tasty.
Setting is marvellous.
Prices for the setting are standard.

The patio was the perfect place for a birthday dinner.
Just one thing, there were a couple tables that appeared to be closer than six feet from the next so I’m not sure if some repositioning is required?
Thank you!!

Hi Jane, the tables may have gotten moved closer together during cleaning. The patio has rechecked and spaced out appropriately. Thank you!

Service was good but not quick. We’re not asked if wanted beef tenderloin rare, medium. or we’ll done. Trout almandine was very good

Glad to hear you enjoyed the trout almandine but I'm sorry it wasn't communicated about the beef tenderloin. Medium rare is our recommended temp for the beef tenderloin but can be customized next time. We hope to see you again soon:)

The food was good and our server friendly; however, there was a large table of golfers right by us who passed by when they left without wearing masks (and we were forced to eat indoors because of the rain). Not impressed with that. Guests need to be better monitored to comply with the rules.

Although the food was good and the server friendly, I will not be going back if I need to sit indoors since no one is apparently monitoring guests. I have worked too hard to stay healthy.

It is too bad that a few selfish and uncaring guests are allowed to ruin a meal. These same guests were also extremely loud.

Hi Sharon, thank you for bringing this incident to my attention. My team is usually quite diligent at enforcing mask wearing so I am sorry to hear your experience indicated otherwise. I will send out a reminder to our team and increase communication with our guests so that we are all working together to stay safe. Stacey
