When with a work colleague for a late supper and impressed with the food, the ambiance and the service. The only thing that let the place down was the overly loud music that prevented reasonable conversation.

Had supper here on two occasions and both were great. Nice food with very attentive service. Drinks a bit expensive as with most places in Dupont. Would definitely go back.

Packed for Sunday brunch over Pride weekend, but the wait staff was great. Excellent hamburger and blackened chicken mango salad. Drinks were small for the price, but well made.
