Always a fun time here, but be warned that it's very busy at lunch time with the business crowd. Happy hour specials are a great deal!

The food is quite nice, I love their hummus plate, it’s sweet but in a very delicious way. I also had a very juicy beef hotdog, really nice. Just in the restaurant it’s a little bit noisy (even noisier than outside, don’t know why)

The food was good but there were only 2 waitstaff on duty and a lot of people came in Labor Day evening. The waitstaff worked extremely hard including running to please everyone. Food was cooked well and was tasty.

Servers were excellent. All else subpar. Disappointed at available selection of beers. I say that because they were out of first two choices. Third choice was warm and flat. Impressed how positive server stayed while we finally found an acceptable beer.

There is parking on the street if you are lucky enough to snare one. There are a few lots around, not sure of the cost. Canada Place as mentioned is not far away but pricey. If you take the train its only a 10 min stroll to... More
