    Excellent gluten free and vegan options. Outstanding service, our server had good recommendations and gave us the space we like while still being attentive to our needs. The Fried Tofu-Rhubarb sweet and sour sauce was sooo delicious as were all the food options. The desserts and the cocktails were also great. We had one louder “business lunch” at a nearby table, but atmosphere was charming.

    Upon arrival for our 5pm reservation on NYE for 2 people we were greeted and then immediately told that we would need to vacate our table by 7. We ordered espresso martinis and 15 minutes later then told us the coffee machine had just broken. Ordered a bottle of wine instead. The server could not open the bottle and was at our table awkwardly struggling for about 10 minutes before she took the bottle and had someone else uncork it away from the table in the middle of the restaurant. We tried to order beef croquettes and they were out of those. We got 7 spice chicken which was sweet and savoury. We ordered charred potatoes which were flavourless boiled mini potatoes. The pork belly was a dried out pork chop with a layer of fat. It was terrible. The ribeye was a poor cut with a large piece of gristle through the middle. Only a few decent bites out of that. During the course of the 90 minutes we were there the female servers spent most of their time standing around talking to the male bartenders. We had to refill our own wine the entire time. When the server brought the food she was quite rude with placing the dishes on the table as it was a small table for 2. We basically only ate the chicken and tried the other 3 items - eating about 25 percent of our meal. We finally fed up and asked for the bill. The espresso martinis were on the bill and had to ask it changed which took forever. The people beside us were drinking cappuccino, which was strange that the coffee machine was apparently broken. While waiting 15 minutes for our bill to fixed a new table was seated and the women that arrived had enough perfume on to need to call the fire department. Only time I have left zero dollars for a gratuity. An awful experience to say the least. While I had been to the Wednesday room in the past for many business meetings - this one left me with no desire to return. We didn’t even finish our wine.

    Love the vibe and the decor. The Cocktails are inventive and delightful. Service was a little on the slow side. The Scallops were in a sauce that was too sweet for my taste, and the flavor overpowered the delicate taste of the scallops. The other dishes were very nice. Was good value. I plan to go back to try some other entrees and more of the cocktails.

    It felt like a gym cafeteria with all the lights on. We waited forever for our drinks and at then our waitress was nowhere to be found when we tried to leave. Miserable experience. Lost a customer which is unfortunate because I used to live going there.

    Pretty relaxed setting with a 70’s throw back. The expose concrete in the basement as a beautiful historic feel. The food was very good across the board. They have one of the best appetizer menus downtown with a bunch of tasty options all perfect for sharing. We ended up having 4 appetizers as well as shared the scallop main course. All of our food was prepared to perfection. If I had a complaint at all it would be that pricing is starting to make it unreasonable to attend these higher end restaurants. We had three drinks, 4 appies and 1 main course and with tip the bill was $220. It was good but the 40% premium over a major chain restaurant (earls, cactus club, Joey) was debatable with regards to returning as I don’t think we would.

    Loved the atmosphere and service of this restaurant. Was a little disappointed in the presentation of the cocktails for the price as well as the food menu was lacking clarity. Ordered the butter board with “seasonal toppings” thinking it would be a safe vegetarian option but was disappointed to find out there were bacon bits on top of the dish. Would be nice if the garnishes were clearly listed in the menu in the future as there are very few veggie friendly options as is, but otherwise an enjoyable experience.

    menu was disappointing as we expected a standard menu based on the description. It was actually Tapas so should probably say tapas. Would have been nice to actually see a paper menu which would add to the period of the room. Server did have good knowledge of the menu. Wine choice was good.
