The location is perfect -- right across from the performing arts centre. If you tell them you're trying to make it to a performance, they'll make sure you finish in time. The food is excellent (try the charcuterie platter) and the atmosphere nice.

Good atmosphere with good food and good wine.
Right opposite the theatre and handy for the Meridian Centre events too.

Heading to a concert with friends who suggested we eat here before the show. An excellent choice. Not a large place. Seats about 36-40, making it rather cozy. An ample drinks/wine menu as well as a rather diverse dinner menu. Our waitress was very efficient and our orders arrived quickly and in unique china ware. The fig appetizer was tasty and pleasantly surprising. The entrees were excellent in preparation and presentation and all in our party enjoyed their meals. Dessert was to die for. All in all, a very relaxing and enjoyable experience.

I walked into this restaurant, randomly, because I was interested in its current dinner special, grilled prime rib. Upon entering, I noticed I was the only patron. Initial service was good. I asked if I could get the grilled prime rib cooked “medium rare... with any error on the rare side” and was assured that I could. Once I got the meal it was obviously overcooked and I mentioned it to the server. She asked if I wanted to send it back and I replied: “no, I am too hungry and don’t have time.” This was especially disappointing since I was clear in specifying my order and there was no one else in the place. I finished my meal with zero other interaction from staff. Nobody bothered to follow-up on their only customer and his overcooked, expensive entre. Upon check-out, I was also not engaged about the poor quality of the meal. At least they could have discounted the price. Also, the establishment presents itself as a “wine bar” but has a poor selection. Likely never going back.

Night of Elton John concert, so needed reservations...got in through the skin of our teeth. Great wine service, and the cuisine outstanding. The staff were very friendly and most professional. A+
