Dined here with colleagues Nov 16. I had the charcuterie and short rib, both were superb. The best meal I've had in a long time. The rib was very tender and succulent. Will definitely return!

We finally made it to Chives. It has been on our “to-try” list for years, yet we always ended up elsewhere.

It was a nice experience, the ambiance and service were wonderful.

The steak tartare appetizer was tasty, the micro greens and fried capers on top were a nice touch.

The short rib, and everything with it, was cooked to perfection.
On the down side, I definitely do not recommend the gnocchi.

The chai chocolate tart was good but, honestly, we were to full to appreciate it.

We went here before and had an amazing steak dinner but this time around the menu lacked variety and it was all root veggies.
The waiter and hostess were excellent but the menu felt bland.

Enjoyed a delicious meal here with some friends in from out of town. Great ambiance to have a drink and enjoy the variety of dishes and flavours. Good from start to finish.
