An unassuming, warm restaurant in the neighbourhood. Christa, the wine buyer/server has a great nose for acquiring interesting wines. I suggest the Susana Balbo Malbec. Smokey, woodsy with big flavour and terrific with the home made sausage appetizer, the duck and the venison with chestnut...More

Small, intimate setting. Decor is warm, and comfortable. Menu options change regularly and are not always on the website - but occasionally they post the night's menu on Twitter. I had the beef heart and shank and it was delicious. As with any good restaurant...More

I am happy to have this gem in my neighbourhood. The food is excellent, the service is solid and we always have a wonderful experience. The ever changing menu allows even frequent visitors to stay interested and while there are great meat selections on the...More

Very decent quality of food, accomplished kitchen obviously. If you can see past having to deal with the other diners loudness and snootery, and that fake "what can I do to serve you today" crap from the servers, the meal is worth it. Maybe bring...More

Food was not bad, but not all that good, either. The service was worse than the worst. The waitress cut me off and wandered away to serve another table in the middle of my question about the menu. We waited for more than an hour...More

Went with another couple, and were very well treated by the staff. The food was great and the restaurant had a lot of character.

Beef so tough, I couldn't swallow it. Waiter had the gall to argue with me that it was "supposed to be this way" and proceeded to demonstrate how to cut it. Apparently, at 48, I have no idea how to cut my meat. Offended, ordered...More

The beef was tough, the celery soup had no flavour, the wait was very long, the price was crazy high, the bench we sat on was wobbly and worn out and considering the place wasn't full, the noise level was very high. Poor value here.
