Heidi Farrel

Absolutely fabulous. We ordered the halibut collar, salmon and duck and all three of us raved about the delicious flavor combinations of each dish. Service is great with a knowledgeable wine advisor. Dessert (strawberry shortcake) was excellent as well. Would absolutely go there again in a heartbeat.

Cute little place for brunch. My boyfriend and I came here on a Sunday and there was a wait at around noon. We both ordered bennies. Our server was a little frazzled but was super friendly. Good service and good food. Super busy on the weekends so I'd recommend going a little earlier if you can!

Everything about this place is awesome, incredible staff, amazing food and wonderful atmosphere. I could eat here everyday. This place just makes me so happy all over. I'm happy when I walk in since they give such a warm greeting, I'm happy when I'm having a drink from their incredible selection, I'm happy when my food arrives. I'm even happy when I leave because I'm already plotting my next visit. As kids we all have our favourite fables, now I have one as an adult! YES!
