We have been here twice and both times the food and staff were excellent! Both times we had made reservations and both times it was for a party of 6 or more.

My wife and I had dinner here on Friday night. The food was tasteless and over cooked. The service was slow and incompetent. With so many other restaurants in the area to chose from why would anyone eat here.

Good service ,good food and excellent company. Only negative remark is feel the restaurant could use an update in decor. Rousseau house needs it and lovely Ancaster deserves it.
