The place was not very busy but we were there early The service was not great, the same person that was the bartender was also the waiter I have food allergies and the waiter/bartender had no idea if they food contained soy - he looked it up in a book He was not accommodating at all, one dish had peas which I am sensitive to and my friend and i were sharing and he refused to put peas on the side for her The food was okay - we had chicken and waffles the chicken was bland The smoked salmon salad was excellent but did not have enough dressing The drinks were good IT says kid friendly on the website - but this is definitely not a great place for kids The kicker was paying it automatically asked for 18, 20 or 25% tip, I didn't even want to give 15% as I felt the service was terrible given that there were only 2 other customers there at the time - the waiter/bartender's focus appeared to be on the people working there that were hanging out at the bad - overall not impressed

Had a great time and the service was outstanding. Only minor complaint was that it was quite cold in the restaurant, which was evident seeing that many of us diners wore our coats through our whole meal! Other than that, I would definitely go back. Their menu is small, intentional and each dish comes out beautiful. Portions are perfect. Value is great! Try the French Toast! Its their signature dish!

Dinner time restaurant looks at dark from outside. From first glance it looked closed. Suggesting to have better lighting though the romantic feeling is great but think is also why it was very quiet during dinner time. Service was amazing! Food is also great. Thanks for a good time.

It was very busy and noisy. There seemed to be a photo shoot taking place behind us which added to level of noise. Overall a great dining experience with server team and food!

Made a reservation for 6 people at 12pm lunch. I arrived a bit early before my clients all arrived. It was 12:10 and the service was giving attitude because my guests were not there yet. I could see her over at the service station complaining to her mgr about it and looking over at my table. At 12:12 my guests arrived. The complete attitude from our server made me totally uncomfortable. As the guests sat she greeted them and basically said to hurry up and order because the food will take a while. I don’t understand how a place like this staff have to act so pretentious. I’ve lived in Liberty Village for 6 years and have never experienced this. Definitely will not be returning here or bringing any of my clients. They clearly don’t care about business.

Food was really good. Service was excellent considering 1 server was responsible for 6 tables at once. Only complaints would be the music was a bit too loud and there wasn't any tortilla chips left for the nachos. Other then that everything was great. We would definitely come back

Great, relaxed atmosphere with creative comfort food. Service was spot on. Roast chicken side was quite dry, but otherwise, meals were tasty, colourful and appetizing! This is a local spot I will definitely go to again.

The experience was not so great. My first time here and the waitress was not engaging. There was a bird flying right over our heads desperately trying to get out and it was sad to watch and irritating while trying to eat. The waitress didnt come over to ask us if we needed anything. We had clearly finished our meal and she continued to divert her attention to other guests until we finally asked for our bill. The lemonade which she claimed was good was very sour and very sweet and didnt pair well with the chicken and waffles/pancakes. Tasted like a 10 year old made it to be honest.

Wonderful atmosphere, and the service was excellent! The food was a bit of a disappointment, my chicken has a very hard thick coating, and mt date was not happy with the greens that tasted fried and very oily.
