    Great neighbourhood restaurant with a cool vibe. Go for the Black Cod or the Trout and leave room for the Monkey Bread. Excellent!

    i discovered my new fav Rosé here: Chateau Les Valentines Cotes De Provence. The Monkey Bread is a dessert that will make you cry it's so good ~ literally wanted to swim in the Creme Anglaise sauce.

    We had a feast here and loved it all. Pea toast was surprisingly tasty, but the octopus and shrimp were my favorite. Skip dessert and head down the street to salt and straw for ice cream instead.

    Oysters were very fresh, mussels were delicious. You can't go wrong with either of them.

    Been here twice so far. So far, 2x very average. Save your money and go to GJelina. Not at all exceptional.

    Seafood erotica. Note: Eat the pea toast with your hands. Gl using a knife and fork.

    Tried the pea toast, unique to say the least. Good blend of blandness of the pea and the kick from jalapeño with a crunchy toast base!

    Excellent small plates with a beautiful bar area to hang out before or after dinner. Beer and wine selections are great, didn't try the "non-cocktail" cocktails. Try the octopus.

    Delightfully over-saturated flavors & an atmosphere like a laid-back ABC Kitchen in NY. The cheddar corn fritters are some of the tastiest things ever. You MUST leave room for the Monkey Bread dessert

    Fish chips amazing! Nice strong house ginger beer. Monkey bread was perfect. Skip house salad (over dressed) + lobster roll (couple bits of lobster, not worth it, go to Connie + Teds/Son Of A Gun)

    Don't overlook the fried fish skin chips with harissa or the bright green pea toast with ricotta. There's Gueuze on tap, and Brian Butler's cocktail list makes good use of beer and wine in drinks.

    Might be too quirky for its own good. Menu items require more explanation than usual. Unfortunately my expectations didn't match the delivery. The place was mostly empty and service took a while.
