This place was really busy on Friday night and it took a while to get a table. That said my friend and I were in no rush,but you may want to book ahead. The vibe and the music were great, but the food choice is very limited. If the menu was a little broader this place would be totally awesome!

I stopped in for a glass of wine and a few appetizers with my sister on a late Thursday afternoon. The bartender was very nice and we had delicious poutine and an artichoke dip.

I come here on occasion with friends. The food is usually quite good (not amazing, but fine). However, my most recent visit left a bit of a bad taste - I had the pizza and I seriously think it was a frozen pizza from Dr. Oetkers. I was really disappointed. I would have mentioned it to the wait staff had... More

Delicious food. Wonderful staff. Great selection of craft beers on tap and in bottles. We found this place the day we decided to move into the neighbourhood and it's been our favourite spot ever since!

Ton of beer choices but the food was also very good. Enjoyed the Miso Plate and the chicken with caesar salad was actually cooked to perfection...not always the case in many places

We went to Bru last Wednesday evening for a business meeting. Great choice for dinner. Bad choice for meeting. Bru was packed and noisy but the cider was great, and the food even better. I chose a Pinot Noir cider paired with "Lady and the Tramp" spaghetti with bison meat balls. Both were excellent!! The ragu was rich and flavorful;... More

Excellent vibe and very attentive service. The beer selection is excellent and the food is very good as well and it isn't that expensive. I have come back more than once and don't even live in this country.
