    Why does this have such great ratings? Yes, good service, great ambiance, but the food has no flavor at all. The tartare is highly rated, but was bland. Overrated place, unfortunately.

    Try the tartare, the chicken and the chocolate pudding. A bit noisy but definitely one of my favourite places in the East.

    Tucked away down a side street, it's the perfect place for an intimate dinner or special occasion. Lovely steak tartare and knockout cocktails. If you love gin try the Cucumber Flip.

    Stopped by for brunch on Jan 1st. Expensive, but good food. Good for a large crowd. Easy to miss if you don't know where it is.

    The black pudding, duck egg & wild mushrooms is as rich as it sounds. Doesn't come with toast so get a side of potatoes!

    I just love the steak tartar here and the cocktails are always very well done. I opted for a classic whiskey sour this time.

    Cucumber flip - with vodka instead of gin - to die for. And then quickly rise again, to order another one.

    The only thing that out-cools the chic, artsy crowd here is the live performances. The resident pianist plays top hits during brunch, while cabaret singers keep the dinner crowds entertained.

    Cannot believe how overrated this place is, nice venue, would go for drinks, but the food was so poor! Grilled onglet smelled of burnt tyres & the brûlée was almost an omelette w/a bitter burnt crust!
