    I took my husband to Michael's back door for his birthday. Food was exceptional atmosphere was great but the best part of the night was our waiter Matt he was enthusiastic and knew the menu inside out. We will definitely return

    Very slow service, we waited for several minutes to even have anyone notice we were waiting to be seated. There was only one waiter and he was not very swift. He didn't refill water glasses and didn't seem to remember the specials for the day.When I asked if the soup was gluten free he quickly said no rather than checking with the kitchen staff. We had been seated almost an hour before our food arrived. The food was good but we will not return even though the person who recommended we go there is a regular customer who was very disappointed that she had suggested we go there for lunch. At least we ladies had a good visit since we had lots of time to chat!

    The restaurant was recommended by my boyfriend's co-worker and I'm pleased to say that we weren't disappointed. We are huge fans of italian cuisine and the food here was phenomenal. The veal was buttery and the sauces were outstanding. The servers were all very attentive and the sunroom's atmosphere was divine. Will definitely become a regular for special date nights =)

    For a fine dining restaurant it was absolutely disappointing. 2/5 stars. Entrance This was a very eloquent entrance from the back. However we had about a three min wait before anyone could greet us. My wife and I were a bit lost that there wasn't even a bartender at the bar to see us and greet us despite the bar being two feet from the hostess stand. Once greeted in we were asked to pick a table. Usually I get told where to get a seat. A customer should feel like the seat given to them is the best in the house. If I had to pick I have to choose which is the best seat. Options should not be given unless the customer asked to be moved for various reasons. The server who took us in and seated us was not the server serving us. When she finally arrived, a series of questions to her which she continually had to run to the back to get the answer. She apologized and said she is part time and thus does not know the information about certain foods or wines and had to ask each time I (the customer ) needed to know something. Drinks was the first item we ordered. My wife and I both ordered a glass of wine each. Funny thing is that we were not at all impressed that the amount of wine served was inaccurate. She ordered a 9oz glass and I a 6oz glass. However when the wine arrived and served the wine amount in each glass was so close to each other. It was less than an ounce apart. Very inaccurate pours from the bartender. The menu was not elegant at all. Presented on a card board paper with the restaurants logo. For fine dining a smaller menu would be just fine. Pre order: We were served with a fairly large bottle mixed with olive oil and vinaigrette. The bottle was a glass bottle about 6 oz high with a spout for which the oil and vinaigrette gets poured. Mind you we were already sitting on a small two person table. On it was two glasses of wine, a candle (fairly large) two forks one knife, those big menus (two of them) and the drink menu. Finally the server brought out the bread. We received it in a metal cone that wrapped what was supposed to be Italian bread. But what I found was pieces of small French baguettes. Not sure why I was served French sliced baguettes in a fine dining Italian restaurant. We had side plates to out our bread then slowly attempt to drizzle this big slippery bottle of olive oil mixture onto those tiny baguettes. It was absolutely the weirdest thing to experience. Finally my wife asked for butter for those thinly chewy sliced baguettes they called bread. The butter came in two rock solid frozen pieces. Yes we couldn't even spread the butter as it was solidified from being refrigerated. Finally we ordered our meals. Two risottos. Mine was the special with spicy Italian sausages and hers a veggie which was a special request. When the two dishes arrived it was presented in a pasta bowl plate. The bowl was simple. There wasn't any garnish nor was the dish dressed well enough to look the part. Both dishes looked very similar. Plain and boring. The first bite got me and my wife. It was scalding hot. The temperature of the risotto was so hot we both burnt our tongues. The taste of the dishes were very identical. The amount of cream flavour that both dishes has over powered the flavour of the main ingredients of the dish. Unless I had a bite of sausage, only then could I have known it was a sausage dish. The rest of the risotto was nothing fancy. When I took a few more bites I also noticed that the risotto was sticky and stuck to the roof of my mouth and my teeth. It wasn't cooked to perfection. After the main dishes we sought for a dessert. My wife ordered the flan and I the sticky toffee pudding. This was by far the worst disappointment of the evening. Firstly, the sticky toffee pudding was a cake. A very extremely dry sponge cake. I have never experienced a sponge cake so dry in my life. The sauce was drizzled all over the plate in a random pattern. It was hard to dip the cake in the sauce and when I

    This was our third visit to this restaurant. We both chose options from the nightly specials and were very happy with our choices. The lamb was excellent and the duck (leg was the most tender) was very good. This restaurant offers a good menu, a wine list for all tastes and budgets as well as good service.

    Had a wonderful meal on Saturday evening. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. We are hoping to go back soon. The only issue we had was that the noise level was extremely loud and that a bit of background music would have been appreciated. Otherwise, would recommend just not for a quiet romantic dinner for two.

    Regular customers for small dinners (3 people) like this as well as small (10-25 people) parties in the past. As usual everything was PERFECT. They leave nothing to be desired.
