I cannot stress how bad our recent experience here was. My mom wanted to treat me to a nice lunch on a Saturday afternoon so we decided to come here. The options for "nice" dining in the east end are limited and we had been here in the past so thought it was a safe bet. Boy were we wrong.... More

We went to celebrate Valentines with friends, and we try and choose somewhere nice. We have not been here for a year or so and thought we would try it again. We love everything we had and there was a good variety to choose from. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was great. The owner came over to... More

I went here for my two year anniversary, which happened to fall on the Tuesday after Valentines day. I'm not sure if that's just a slow night so they didn't have the staff, or if its a normal occurrence. Although our server was friendly, he didn't list any specials and pretty much only came to drop off food and take... More

My wife and I stopped for a late lunch early dinner. Service fast, pleasant and efficient and not afraid to suggest! We started with the duck confit appetizer and It proved to be the highlight of the day! Lots of duck on a bed of caramelized onions,wild mushrooms on a crostini. WOW! My wife had seafood pasta in a rose... More

We had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant numerous times. It is my mother in law's favourite restaurant and we have to agree. The food/service/decor was outstanding. Thank you for making her birthday memorable.

The meal and service was excellent. Our waitress, Amanda was fantastic and very helpful in helping us choose our meal. We certainly will return as we found this a really pleasant and tasteful dining experience. Also loved the fact that the TV was not on a sporting event!!

It's a bit pricey but worth the experience. Decor is nice. You can make it romantic or more casual. 4 people for dinner, Bill was a little over $300. One of the few and far between fine dining choices in the Durham Region.

A party of 4 with a 6:30 reservation on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was very busy but we were seated promptly. Coincidently at the same table we had been seated at 7 months earlier. I will say, the noise level was again, on occasion, too loud for a pleasant dinner time atmosphere. Our server was Blair and he was very... More

We were here some months ago and it was excellent. However, dinner earlier this evening sucked. The wine and appetizer was fine (should be at $50 and $16 respectively) but it took an hour for the mains to arrive. When they finally did arrive, the Halibut was disgusting. Presentation was uninspiring and the small fillet and veggies mixed with potato... More

We were visiting Oshawa and enjoyed a nice dinner here. We were seated immediately and treated to good service throughout the meal. The food was as expected (which was very good!!) but not particularly memorable. We would definitely eat here again if we visiting Oshawa in the future.
