    Terrible! Extremely expensive for the poor quality of cooking. Pasta was so full of garlic you could smell it before reaching us. Osso Buco was tough and too cartilagenous.

    Everything was just perfect. Amazing burger (the party was so tasty!) and ceviche with coconut milk was a great twist.

    Order the ceviche, then the burger with maple bacon, smoked Gouda and squid ink bun. Sit back and revel in its perfection.

    Duck in salad had texture but no taste. Brisket burger had presentation but no taste. Wife liked the mushroom/mozz appy. Restaurant for a very soft palate. For $300, 2 people could do a lot better.

    It's alright. Food is not bad, but not worth the price. Go to Patria, Richmond Station or George.

    Terrible server "Daria". Ruined the occasion with an attitude. The food was okay, I admit. The other servers were normal. Just what she said: nota bene means take a risk !!!!! It means note well!!

    The chef's take on contemporary Canadian cuisine is all about locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. It's a place where the staff is great, where they're nice to you. Get a steak or a burger. Read more
