First, the service was outstanding. The two young ladies who worked the front of the house were friendly, extremely attentive, and helpful. The restaurant isn't very big, but it has a pretty good ambience. In terms of the food, it's o.k., but it doesn't match...More

There is limited street parking but there is a Secure Parking station just across the road at SW1. I believe if you use any of the cafes or the IGA there you can get your parking validated for 2 hours free.
