We went with friends and their kids for dinner on Saturday night. We had a very good experience. First, we had a reservation for 6pm, which was early so it's not surprising that it was ready - nevertheless, there was already a good crowd at the restaurant. There is plenty of parking in the lot. For appetizers, we ordered roasted... More

I'm not sure why we haven't been here previously. This place was fantastic. Beautiful room, lovely staff, very unique options as far as food (but nothing too strange). Whitefish was fantastic, penne was wonderful, deserts were delicious. We will definitely be back.

This restaurant is huge and the atmosphere therefor is a little lost. 3 big flat screen televisions with live sports games give it the feeling of a sports bar but the menu and prices suggest that it is a high end restaurant. The food is good and fresh and the staff is very friendly. The restaurant is in a parking... More

I enjoy all their products. I know many people go for the cinammon buns but I prefer the wild rice bannock! It's like a scone but wonderful texture and flavour. I especially like to get the ones they have fixed up with their saskatoon jam. My favourite treat! Also must say I really appreciated that they provided cinammon buns to... More

Its so over priced The 96th floor of the John Hancock building looks cheap compared... The FRESH caught copper river salmon they claim to get is most likely a fraud. Read the articles about it on Google.. But the worst is the smell when its empty.. It smells like the clientele. 75+

I met s business associate there for lunch today. My guest had a cheese omelette and I had the tuna salad sandwich. Great service as usual by Jose and a seat at one of the high top tables in the bar made for a great lunch and discussion. FIVE STARS!
