Interesting menu and presentation: really old-fashioned. Reminded me of going to a restaurant back in the 60's: salad was skimp, meal was ok but small portions. Special cocktail was the highlight: a Nanaimo-bar concoction which was great, if not a bit pricey.

Steak was good. Lobster tail good but small. The side salad and bread need an update along with the decor. Used a gift certificate so good way to try the place but won't be back.

Our friend chose Bold Knight for his birthday dinner (party of 5) for a couple reasons: 1. Food is good 2. Close to where most of us lived Now having been here before, I knew the food was good but the restaurant needs a facelift....More
