                                        Excellent food, everything we ate was delicious (highly recommend the calamari and two day lamb shank), great service and loved the wine recommendations. The music was a little bit loud, and music selection was quite upbeat which it hasn't been in the past.

                                        Food was good particulary the starters and the desserts. The rest was ok and pricey. Service was slow and chaotic, not worth the tip. The noise was loud, difficult to have a good conversation

                                        The food was amazing we got the beet carpaccio, the charred octopus, the braised short ribs and a side of flat bread and labneh everything was delicious! Service was also great, the young girl who presented us the wine was super nice! I just took out one star for ambiance because personally I found the music a bit too loud for my liking but im older. It was fine when we got there at 6;30 but I think around 8 it got louder and louder. But I'll definitely got back for the food!

                                        As always, it is a wonderful restaurant with excellent service and great food. The flavours and simple preparation make for such an enjoyable occasion every time. And the matching of the wines are always on point. A regular go to restaurant for great times with that special someone or friends and that never disappoints.

                                        Food was good, but et think it’s a bit overpriced of what is it, you can have a diner at the ritz( 5 stars ) with same amount.

                                        No consideration for sanitary measures. They were allowing people to come in and out the restaurant, and walking to the bar and washroom, without facemask (mask mandate still in effect as I write this review…). Also, a guy was smoking a e-cigarette at the table right next to mine and the staff didn’t seem bothered at all.

                                        Incredible atmosphere and incredible food, definitely felt like a timeshare meeting where they try and sell you on every possible addition whether it be a third entree or more bread and dip so be cautious because the time between courses can be lengthy and it’s clear the goal is to keep you around to buy more additives.
