  1. I seriously enjoyed the quinoa salad last time I was there for lunch. This is always a safe bet.

    Also got the mushroom consommé and thought it was really just meh. Wouldn’t get it again, that’s for sure.

    They always have specials on the black board which are usually pretty good too! At this moment I can’t recall what I had but the specials change daily.

        Food is great..but portions are tiny..order more than you think you can eat!

          Their seafood dishes are good; if I'm there for a la carte I tend to get a fish dish for my main.

        2. Save room for dessert and order as many as you think you can handle. The young pastry chef is arguably the most talented one working the in the city right now -- incredible creativity and fantastic touch with flavours and textures. Ask him to surprise you if he has time.

            Is the pastry chef new or has he/she been there from the beginning?

              He (Farzam Fallah) has been there from the beginning as far as I know.

          2. Thanks to everyone who replied.... Will definitely double down on the desserts and see what the specials of the day are...

            1. I was just there today, the lunch special was very good value. I ordered the chilled asparagus soup and roast beef main. TorontoJo I wished I read your post - I didn't even look at the dessert menu.
