Really great atmosphere and the old walls etc are amazing. Carpacio, bruschetta, halibut, steak were all very good as was the tiramisu! Service was ok but not overtly friendly. Not as good as Old Tap.

Tested this restaurant with my family and it's just amazing. Last minute reservation and here we are table x4 and we ordered Pasta Di Olio, Pasta Bolognese and the Robin salad. All was perfect. Everything was right balanced. Bravo to the Chef and team, Merci.

Delicious fine food with a bit of a pub feel. Highly recommend the Caprese salad. Not your typical balsamic drizzle. It's an amazing pesto and balsamic reduction.

We're unwilling to seat a group of 8 people. Hostess did not even check. Seating is limited, may need reservation. Can easily turn away larger group as very busy.
