First time in Canada and my cousin took us here, twice, well we requested the second time. We were entertaining cousins of ours that we hadn't met.
We had booked the round table as it sat six, although there were only five of us.
The first visit we were offered water as we sat down, then we ordered drinks and main meal, non of us wanted starters. My partner and I both had the special, Salmon with a garlic mash, cannot remember what else we had with it, it was nearly a month ago. Two others had the PortaBella Mushroom cannelloni and forget what the fifth person had.
After the mains none of us wanted any deserts, which were brought around on a serving plate to show you what selection there was that evening, a great way of presenting them.
The second night we booked was again to entertain and chat to a cousin and his fiancé, both of whom I had never met. This time we were offered not only the water bread with oil and balsamic not sure if this is normal, but we were waiting on the cousin to turn up.
Again the mains were superb, I remember I had the PortaBella Mushroom Cannelloni, great dish and we also this time shared two deserts between four of us.
A great atmosphere, the last night there was musical entertainment, a guitarist and female vocalist, think there was a third musician but cannot swear to it.
The only down point is if you have a client who visits the male bathroom for a long while, there is only one male bathroom, and Nadia, lovely lady, checked the female toilet and 'stood guard' while I visited that one..... Now Nadia you know who is writing this review.
It is a very busy restaurant and the first visit we had to walk through the waiting 'Drop-ins' as we call those who don't have a reservation.
It is a grand restaurant with lovely serving staff who are helpful, they took photos of our group with my camera for me, and it is the reason why I requested that we visited a second time.
If I go back to St Catharine and Nadia is still the owner, then I shall dine there again.
