The name Gezellig is a Dutch adjective for a cozy or nice atmosphere with a sense of belonging, and that is certainly the case for this restaurant! We did not realize until later that it is actually a converted 1950’s bank building. Our overall experience here on a recent Saturday evening was extraordinary. Everything was first-rate…from the friendly greeting and warm and comfortable ambience, to the wonderful food and wine, and the excellence of our server, Marah, who was very personable, knowledgeable and helpful, and introduced every food and wine course and was eager to answer any questions we had. We felt very well attended to, but never imposed upon. The menu was interesting and had several selections that appealed to us. Wine pairings for each course were offered in 3 or 5 oz servings. We ultimately chose the roasted squash soup (with lemon crème fraiche and sage-chive oil), paired with a Cave Spring Riesling, Niagara. It was superb! Our main selections were the Gnocchi (paired with an Italian Pinot Grigio), and the Steak Diane and frites with peppercorn sauce, paired with an Argentinian Malbec wine. Both mains were delicious, and the wine pairings were perfect. Dessert was a very generous Blood Orange Crème Brûlée with a Snickerdoodle cookie (paired with a Late Harvest Riesling), and gelato in three different flavours (Irish Cream, raspberry, and vanilla with fruit swirl). All were superb! This was our first time at Gezellig, but it won't be our last. We enjoyed it so much that we’ll be back soon and often!
