Parking is tight, except on weekends, but worth a try. Lots of interesting stuff on the menu, all of it quite good. Attentive and helpful staff.

Duo is still quite good, but my two visits, about a month apart were very different in quality and service. Maybe an off weeknight was the issue? But poor service when there are only three parties isn't really up to snuff.

The food is always good with a cutting edge taste.We always partake in the specials ,trusting in our server to give us a good description of the fare .Sometimes the wait is inevitable but the trade off is worth it.

Pretty much everyone I met from Kingston has good things to say about this place so I was excited to check it out! The... More
