Another unexpected surprise. We thought it would be gypsy themed with a fortune teller. In fact, it is a more formal fine dining venue with incredibly good food. Service was excellent, wine menu was very good and the meals were perfection

Started off on the wrong foot perhaps. Made a reservation but got seated at an uncomfortable table in the middle of the room - when there was a nice empty booth in the corner the whole time. Cod chowder for appetizer was terrible. Watery and half cooked potatoes and carrots and not even one morsel of cod. Halibut was fantastic... More

The service is ok, we had to wait quite a bit of time before we were served. The portions are small considering the price. The food is tasty and well presented. The brick chicken turned out to be the best of the lot.

Loved the food here and the Fig desert will keep bringing you back. We planned to eat in the main restaurant but we had so much fun sitting in the bar area we just stayed. The service was great and the food was perfect. I look forward to going back.

We ran in there in a hurry for a quick bite b/c we wanted to get back to the Brier. They accommodated us & were very helpful with the menu. Everything was delicious & the service was excellent. Can't wait to go back!
