Ok, I love everything about this place. The wait staff is phenomenal--very attentive but not annoying in the slightest. The drinks are amazing, but the star is the food. The tuna tartare is so amazing--we get it every single time. I love it and I never ever ever eat seafood lol. I usually get the filet mignon with asparagus...always a... More

By far not my first time here but first time to review. Arrived on time and waited a few minutes for the table. Hostess was very apologetic. Restaurant was packed so it is reasonable to expect a short wait. Once seated, it took a few minutes for the waitress to check in - and that is what she did and... More

We were there for a family union with three generations. To begin with bread was so crisp and tasty that we were afraid to fill up with bread & butter only. Then all 3 starters were yummy as they were all cooked in the best way possible. Calamari dish was my favourite. All types of steaks were enjoyed by everybody... More

Friday night we made reservations on Open Table for two. Seated promptly and greeted by our server promptly. Started with a crab cake appetizer and pear salad. Both very good. Their sour dough bread and slightly sweetened butter was delicious. I ordered the half chicken with spinach and mashed potatoes. A simple rustic dish, but the potatoes were very salty... More

Family dinner to celebrate a birthday. While it was a Wednesday night, it was packed, and we were glad I made a reservation. Service was very good. I had the hanger steak which was cooked perfectly and had good flavor. The port wine demi-glace paired well with the steak, as well as the fries. Speaking of the herbed fries, they... More

We had dinner here on a Tuesday evening. We ordered 2 beef tenderloin specials ($35), these were excellent. Also the salmon($26) and short rib risotto ($27)were very good. Our server, Matt, was very helpful and attentive. We sat in the bar side which has a nice atmosphere. There is a parking lot on the next block with plenty of room.
