    Went for my brothers birthday and it was amazing! The Rosemary fries are to die for. And the burgers are simply Delilah. Go for lunch for sure!

    Good ambiance, solid food and friendly enough wait staff. Asked for a booth adjoining the bakery, those seats appear best and away from the TV.

    Man do I like to eat at this place! The Burger is great, all the soup is wonderful including the french Onion Soup, and there is a tiny little bartender that makes a kick butt Manhattan!!!

    By far the best breakfast in town. Opens at 9am, Healthy options, and great music. The eggs Benedict is awesome, and the brioche french toast will melt your mind.

    Duck wings are always a fave! Absolutely delicious and never a letdown. Waitresses are very friendly and come by in just the right intervals.

    Delicious meals and great pints, a little slow on service but on the upside, recovered nicely by handing out a few free pints. Mad props to the chefs, never missed a beat with the treats

    If you want to try something vegetarian the vegetable gnocchi is super yummy! I will have it again.

    Ask about the gluten-free pasta options! Tastes just as good as the real thing.

    Really good duck confit. Potatoes are not dry in the centre at all. Carrots were roasted really well.

    If you have space for dessert, try the creme brulee (with banana bread)! ~that is if you like creme brulee and banana bread! ;)

    Short rib gnocchi, nice but a bit heavy for the stomach.

    I've never been disappointed by their wine recommendations. Just wish they still had Cannonball by the glass.

    Try the braised short-rib and gnocchi on the lunch menu. More meat than gnocchi but absolutely delicious

    Very disappointing. Tried their fish and chips. Chips were barely cooked through and really nothing more than bland planks of potato...not fries....and the batter on the fish was undercooked. Sad.

    There seems to be someone here with the whooping cough. It can be quite distracting to an intimate evening.
