I have been there on a number of professional gatherings. The food is very good. The service is good. But the drinks are overly expensive. The price of drinks is more expensive than 5 star hotels in downtown Toronto!

No there is no dress code to eat dinner, although many of the patrons were dressed more than casual. Our party dressed in jeans and no one made comment otherwise.
