The menu items looked very interesting but once ordered they were not put together well! Tuna Tacos, Kimchi with raw tuna, not! The toasted corn tortilla was not appropriate either! Fries looked as though the oil needed to be changed, dark and many over done...More

My wife and I had dinner here on Friday night. The food was tasteless and over cooked. The service was slow and incompetent. With so many other restaurants in the area to chose from why would anyone eat here.

Good service ,good food and excellent company. Only negative remark is feel the restaurant could use an update in decor. Rousseau house needs it and lovely Ancaster deserves it.

I’ve come here often and the food and service has always been great. The outdoor patio in the summer is even better! I live in the area and have come here for birthdays and dinners. Highly recommend this place!
