We selected this restaurant for sunday brunch last weekend. it is highly overrated with a rather low selection on its menu. The potato latkes were okay but the breakfast pita sandwich wasn't. their selection for Sunday brunch is rather poor. Maybe they should add their breakfast menu at that time too. Omelettes would have definitely helped

Was expecting much better after reading reviews. Definitely over-priced. Food was very average. Lattes were lukewarm even though we asked for them to be hot. Server didn't look like she even wanted to be there. Lots of better restaurants in Kingston

I reviewed this restaurant in 2011, and at the time found it to be very good. I returned in November this year and was not so impressed. I had the $50 four course menu. The first course was a paté which was just OK, second course was a large beef rib which was mostly fat with very little meat, third... More

The food is very good indeed (if a bit pricey), and the service excellent; but you come here for the view onto Kingston harbour, which is splendid, and can be seen through the huge windows from just about every table.

Well.... what can I say but absolutely spectacular! We felt like we were the only two people in the restaurant. Our waitress was amazing. Even though another couple was giving her an undeserving difficult time she still fanned over us . Our meals were spot on. We enjoyed every bite and of course, the creme Brule was just amazing.

Five seniors from our condo were invited by one of them to be her guest for a diner at this restaurant. We had the wine pairing specialty . The overall meal was excellent and our waiter was very knowledgeable explaining what each of the five courses consisted of including the accompanying wines. The only negative thing ,, it was rather... More

I would say the meals are average. We felt rushed through the meal. Items came one right after another no time to rest between courses. We had to ask twice for the wine to be delivered to the table. Marco was pleasant but distracted Not a place I would recommend for ambiance or seafood meal. I feel that to up... More

Wonderful meals and great ambience! Only downside is that it's pricey! For those on a budget, try the Sunday brunch. Much cheaper and ridiculously yummy
