Ours was a ‘Fine Dining” dinner outing for a group of seniors. There was no issue with separate cheques which came with a pre-advertised 15% gratuity. The servers earned their tips as there was some confusion with the orders which was probably not their fault....More

Small intimate place - free of blasting music, one person for our table, vs. Multiple staffers doing this and that. Friendly server who gave us lots of options, did not rush us. Would return anytime.

A wonderful cozy bistro style place that has been around 25 years. The restaurant was spacious enough to not feel crammed, yet cozy enough to feel like you had just visited a bistro in Paris. The food was good, however the server could have used...More

Dropped in for dinner tonight after a less than exemplary experience at another restaurant. We called at the last minute, they squeezed us in on a busy Saturday night and by the time our cocktails arrived we had shaken off the poor experience and were...More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
