This was my first visit. I ordered the turkey bacon panini and I was rather disappointed. It just seemed very sloppily put together and the turkey wasn't very good. However, I'd be willing to try it again, the guest I was with really enjoyed the breakfast poutine.

Great place to relax & enjoy a delicious meal with friends. Service was great & we enjoyed the food very much. :) I did not have a crepe, but one of my friends did & she said it was amazing.

The food was awesome. A place for adults to enjoy. Most items are put in cepes. I can't explain it. You need to experience. Just know the food is fantastic and Lauren our waitress was a sweetie.

Always pleased with the menu and the service. Katie usually takes care of us and she's such a doll! Prompt service, excellent cuisine, and a wonderful wine selection. And the dessert crepes? To die for. Do yourself a favor and plan your date night to include The Aviary-- you won't be disappointed!

Good service, limited menu with odd style crepes... Ingredients uncommon for French cuisine. Desserts are excellent in quality, presentation and taste. Espresso coffee, when available, is miserable: bitter and served lukewarm. Price overall is a bit inflated.
