Saw this restaurant while driving by, looked it up and decided to give it a try. The food was absolutely delicious and as it was a nice evening we had our dessert on the patio.

what an amazing find in Barrie. Exceptional food and service. Presentation of our meal was stunning. The chef's appetizer platter was amazing. Stunning decor. A must to visit when in Barrie. Full marks to the chef and all the staff. Will definitely be back.

The food was amazing. The layout of the restaurant wasn't the greatest. There were way to many stairs. My elderly mother was with us and they'd seated us upstairs.

I found this place overpriced for quality of food and service. It is not accessible friendly. Restrooms are a lot of stairs to get to. I Would not recommend for families. It was OK for date night. I would probably not go back.

We do have a wheelchair ramp and a few tables we assign that are wheelchair accessible. However, our washrooms are several flights of stairs down into the office building which we are a part of.
