Our experience here was fabulous. The chef is incredibly creative and talented. The food is insanely delicious. There is no way this can't be the best restaurant in Victoria.

Outstanding creative and flavorful. Each dish was unique and bursting with flavor. The food is on par with the best restaurants in Chicago and twice the value. The chef is immensely talented and manager Brie (sp?) works ver hard to make your dining experience memorable

Un seule personne nous a parler en Francais lorsque mous avons visiter ce restaurant. Le nom du restaurant est en Francais mais je penses que c'est leur limite et ils ont qu'une personne du staff qui parle en Francais.
