We started with brie cheese in cast iron and then had the parmesan chicken sandwich and cornish hen. The cuisine was excellent. We sat inside by the window looking out towards the street and the setting sun. The room ambience was nice, although we shared with a foursome and our mutual conversations could be heard in the silence.

The server was friendly and courteous. The only thing 'off' was the lack of a place to hang our coats (we were dressed formally because it was our 25th wedding anniversary celebration). So we had to hang them on hooks. And the greeter was informal in dress although the servers were dressed nicely.

All in all it was a pleasant evening.

We are so glad we found this restaurant during COVID when dining indoors is sadly not the safest option. The private heated greenhouses are so adorable and intimate to enjoy a meal in, and such a safe way to enjoy a restaurant with others in your family bubble. Super warm and cozy, and very sheltered from the outside weather. The food and service were fantastic as well. We will definitely be back regularly this winter!

We really appreciated the variety of gluten free options on the menu, as well as the presentation, freshness and taste of our meals. Our server Faith kept close tabs on us, and kept the hot coffee coming. We would have ordered dessert if there were gf options other than ice cream. Covid protocol was definitely being followed. Some reviews we had read on Open Table talked about the annoyances of the wasps on the patio, but they were not a bother to us. We found the traffic noise more annoying. It was a sunny Saturday afternoon, therefore there were a lot of motorcycles! Not a fault of the restaurant by any means. We would love to revisit once things settle down and we can confidently enjoy the dining room. For those with mobility issues, access to the washrooms (which were very clean by the way) might be a bit of a challenge.

Worth a visit for the atmosphere and setting, was nice t sit on the big front porch and watch the world go by. The food was a bit of a let down. It was not bad, but was very average for such a nice setting. I had a chicken parmesan sandwich that was similar to any fast food chicken sandwich but with a bit of tomato sauce and a slice of mozarella cheese, the bun was the best part of the sandwich. It came with a nice side salad that was fresh but no options on dressings. The others at the table shared 2 pizzas between three people, and a salad. Woodfired pizza was nice, but again nothing exceptional.

I had been here before and had a really good lunch, so maybe this was just a menu that was unexceptional, and future menus will be more appealing again. Service was okay, setting was exceptional.

We were given a choice of tables and picked the veranda.There were 4 of us. Waitress served us immediately and brought beverages quickly. We asked for recommendations for supper. We had Bruschetta and Caprese salads. Delicious! For dinner we enjoyed a variety of meals. The Bison burger and fries were amazing and very filling. Hubby had the short ribs which were very good and I had the Mahi Mahi. It was the most delicious I have had in a very long time. All side dishes were also devoured. The chef went to great lengths to ensure his dishes were beautiful looking, inviting and delicious. The desserts were quite tasty also. The service was great. An evening to remember for a long time. Thank you!
