An old fashioned restaurant on Bay Street that offers very authentic, hearty, yet interesting dishes. Had a business breakfast - home made granola with greek yogurt and fruit compote, which was very good. My colleague had the egg and cheese sandwich was equally fine. Prices...More

Excellent traditional bistro in the financial district but also a short stroll to the theatres. Focus on home style classics. Limited menu with daily fish specials. Can be loud and jostling but lots of energy. Very busy but staff had things well under control. Everything...More

Definitely get the Tuesday special Fried Chicken, which comes with a small portion of mac and cheese so you get to try one of their signature dishes. We also got the chicken pot pie and all in all this was a very satisfying meal. This...More

The place is small, the menu is small and the beer & wine list is small. Prices are not. The food is always good and fairly eclectic with largish portions. The patrons appear to be hipsters with very few bay street types. It was almost...More

Comfortable, cozy restaurant, with wholesome hearty food. Service is good, waiter friendly and helpful. A little loud with the music turned high. The fish tacos were so tasty and the mac and cheese with ham was very delicious - creamy and tasty.

This looked like my kind of special lunch restaurant, but I was very disappointed in this place and my expensive chicken pot pie. The herb crust was tasty, but inside had hot and cold spots, and was pasty/gloopy instead of creamy. I ate half and...More

I had been wanting to try this restaurant for quite some time and finally did. I rate it middle of the road. We had the fried cauliflower which was tasty...but it was battered so it was REALLY heavy. We also had the fish cakes (which...More

I struggled to understand the menu. Other reviews called it comfort food, but from a US perspective, the menu doesn't reflect what I would call a comfort focused restaurant. There seemed to be no air conditioning, so really stuffy. The wait staff was very helpful...More
