If you are a foodie like me, you search out the best restaurants for your foodie palette. This one doesn't disappoint at all! This is one of the original with Raudz farm to table, seasonal restaurant! The creativity and attention are top of class! The wine list is great too, with local and old world offerings! I have never once... More

This was our first visit here and we were quite impressed. We were seated promptly and water was brought immediately. The menu was limited but interesting, and the wine list was amazing. I ordered the elk special, which was superb. My wife had the duck and she loved it. Dessert was also spectacular. Service was excellent, and we were not... More

Very small establishment. Food was okay, but I expected way more considering the awards the chef has received. The cheese starter plate was the most tasty. Avoid the cocktails--I tried one after not enjoying my initial glass of wine. I ended pouring out the first cocktail. Then I tried the white wine sangria. Unfortuantaly it tasted like carbonated orange kool... More

Traveling for work means a lot of dining out. Some times it's a hit and mostly it's varying degrees of miss. A work contact told me I should check this place out so I did. From the jump, the staff was super friendly, professional, and courteous to me (solo diners usually get the short end of it). The food was... More

Good spot to eat for quality food. The octopus and squid was properly tendarized to perfection. I only wish there was a little more on the dish. I also had the flat iron need which was also cooked to a perfect med rare. Service was good and the price was fair for the quality of food.

I have eaten here about 6 or 7 times since I moved to k town (end of September) every meal I have had has been nothing short or fantastic. I find the staff knowledgeable and attentive while always smiling. I always sit at the bar and watch the lads work away which is nice cause I usually dine alone. I've... More

Lovely restaurant. Lovely staff. Clever and original menu. The service is perfect, the dishes very nicely presented and very good, and a very nice wine list. Nothing to add, but that it was a bit pricey, but we found that all of BC is a pricey.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a customized tasting menu during our recent visit. The food was fantastic, especially the very special sauce made with the restaurant's own black garlic. The kitchen was in full view of our table so one of the chefs was even kind enough to share some cooking tips with one of our group. Waitresses were... More

I've visited this restaurant on several occasions with great expectations but each time I am somewhat let down. While I appreciate the skilled chefs and their creations I simply cannot find dinner here as a vegan. Even vegetarian is challenging here. Salad is not a meal unless it is served as one which includes a protein. Sadly the servers don't... More
