This place has great wine, craft beer and excellent food! My last visit was a week ago but I have been there many times as it is one of my favorite restaurants. The service is amazing and the restaurant layout is very upscale and appeasing to the eyes. It is a good size but oddly shaped and allows for intimate... More

Went for an early dinner on a Friday night without a reservation and managed to get a table. Hurray! Lovely atmosphere with lots of happy dog pictures... The calamari appetizer was excellent. The service was very attentive. Both meals were plentiful and flavourful. There were gluten free and veggie options. Appetizer, drinks and main meals totalled $75 including tax. Couldn't... More

Have been twice for dinner at this lovely restaurant. Both times it has been fully booked, but the service was great and the food was very good! The chef must take pride in his/her work, as we waited one time a little longer for a starter (scallops) than all other starters. When asked why, we were told the chef was... More

Lovely place to meet with friends. Casual but classy too. Local draught on tap which is a great way to promote the area breweries.

Loved everything about this restaurant. Delicious food, wonderful staff, beautiful inside. We were a party of 6, all first timers, all loved it and would definitely go back and soon. I'm seriously thinking of reserving a table for Valentine's Day to surprise my husband.

Popped in for a few drinks, ended up sitting at the bar socialising with locals. Friendly vibe & fantastic service. Got a little peckish after a couple of shants, so ordered the charcuterie and cheese board. WOW! what a selection! Cheeses, cold meats and condiments that fused it together beautifully. Didn't go into the restaurant, but would definately book to... More

This really restaurant came highly recommended to us by family. We were a group of ten getting together for a special occasion. Because of our amazing server, we had an enjoyable time, but seven of us did not enjoy our food. The three dishes that got good reviews in our group were the steak, the steak sandwhich, and the ribs.... More
