We went to a book signing next door at Ben McNally's so before we went in for a drink. Their twist on a gin and tonic is wonderful. Unusual and lovely. So much so I had another after the event. Very busy so we are...More

First time in Toronto and visited here on the recommendation of a work colleague. The cod tacos were tasty and the apple tart was super. I couldn't fault the quality of the food. What I did struggle with was the mismatch between the price of...More

There for dinner twice two weeks ago and experience could not have been better, friendly and accommodating staff, cozy and comfortable surroundings but best of all great food. Small but very good wine list that topped off two fantastic evenings.

A nice ambience, although the tables are literally on top of each other. You better be a "people person" to sit in many of the sections. Wait staff is cordial but really do not go much further other than stiff disinterested inquiries as to your...More
