Really enjoyed lunch in this restaurant that is located in the Delta Hotel. It was by chance and a great food experience. All the dishes had updated features and were different and unusual. Highly recommend. I had the Grilled cheese/Club sandwich and it was delicious

We have been here before and enjoyed it but last night the service was awful. We had 90 minutes before the comedy show at the Scotiabank Center which should have been plenty of time. Our server was inattentive throughout the meal and left us sitting...More
