when we first arrived the service was excellent, after being served our appetizers the service diminished. Once we were served the main entree the service disappeared.. Not one of the 3 servers bothered to ask us how our meal was. The prawns in shredded phyllo and deep fried were so so (there was so much breading you could barely taste... More

The atmosphere is great, a little history in an older house, fine dining. The food was perfect, the service beyond reproach.

Dinner for 3. Adults had set menu. Our kid had 2 appetizers instead of a main. The food tastes good but IS WAY TOO LARGE. We couldn't eat everything but even so ended up feeling greasy, ill and with heartburn that night. Good tasting food at first and nice atmosphere, but they need to scale back portion sizes. Also quite... More

We have never been disappointed in our nearly 20 years of visits and we always recommend it to family and friends visiting in the... More

I hadn't been in a while but I got invited and was pleasantly surprised. Heard they may update the menu which would be exciting. Currently this restaurant is my favourite place to go out for a nice date night or celebrate a birthday. Excellent and professional service. Delicious food.. Make sure you say hi to Luke!

We went here on Adventurous Wednesday. I will start by saying the service was very good. Some of the dishes served were good...but some not so much. To serve salmon tartar and beef tartar...these 2 items are a very acquired taste..and while I am "adventurous" these were not good. I'm not sure if the best option to serve...which would certainly...

We have wanted to dine here since we hard about it last year, and we were not disappointed at all. The food was exceptional, the service was wonderful (Nick knows how to play to a group), and the place itself is homey and inviting. We were a party of six, and everyone ordered something different, and it was all fresh... More
