What an awful experience... I ordered the smoked salmon crisps and my husband the butchers block (which for the record requires no cooking, only prep). People were seated beside us, ordered, were served and ate, paid and left, and our server had still not returned. After 50 minutes and numerous attempts to make eye contact she came over to apologize... More

Was here for a Sunday lunch with friends. Our server was one of the best I've had anywhere. Polite, informative, attentive, but not overly so. The Atmosphere menu speaks creativity, and fresh ingredients. Among the dishes we ordered - Jerk Chicken Tacos, Salmon Crepe, Specialty burger. Gluten free is readily available. Everyone was happy with their food. Atmosphere is in... More

I liked it there, the service was good and so was the food for acceptable prices. All of the waiters and bartenders were extra nice and helpful, I will definitely return here more often. i noticed also a lot of family people with kids and young crowd dinning side by side. I guess that shows the variety of people that... More

An appetizer and salad provided lots of food for a dinner. Just left room for dessert. I had a chocolate torte with a generous helping of delicious tart raspberry coulis and whipping cream. The torte was not sweet, just rich and chocolatey. Everything was perfect.
