“Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

The service, the atmosphere, and the food were very good. I found it to be quite pricey. They have a nice selection of wines.

“Good food, kind of expensive, not as amazing as it could be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

Basicaly it has great potential and the food is great sometimes but sometimes not. Same goes for the atmosphere - sometimes good and nice music and sometimes there is a bad live musician and the music is too loud, sometimes too hot sometimes too cold.
I've had amazing food before and other times I was disappointed, either way the food is over priced, I rarely go here.

Saved the best for last. Had a nice steak with bernaise sauce and the service was great! Would definitely recommend.

“Good experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Nice variety of appealingly presented and delicious items on the menu. They had a musical duo the evening we were there, and they were enjoyable but not intrusive. Excellent experience

“good food and music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

based on reviews i knew that the food would be pricey. but the food was good so it didn't feel like a rip off. for one thing, you are in yellowknife, not toronto. my husband and i were happy to have this option (as well as Thornton's). my husband had seafood chowder (too creamy for my taste) and i had lentil soup. both come in big platters. my husband had pork (the sauce was too sweet for him) while i had the lamb wrapped with mushrooms and puff pastry. i had the sweet potato fries with it. the fries were good. it was drizzled with a balsamic glaze and you could dip it in garlic aioli (extra but good).
restaurants give you iced water which is pointless to me personally since it was -30 degrees celsius outside. my tip for them is to serve water with no ice or even offer hot water, especially if they're serving asians. we'd appreciate it. :)
