Amazing experience

Posted on 02 / 19 / 2014

We happened upon this place by accident on valentines day, and it was without a doubt the best part of our trip! We will be visiting this restaurant whenever we are in Toronto in future.

They had a special multiple course dinner for valentines day, each course with a gluten free AND vegan option (we are both veg and gf so we need to have both and not either/or like some places offer!). The only exception was the dessert... no problem though... the chef decided to experiment and whip up TWO different desserts for us to try! And both were amazing!

The food was MORE than excellent, the service phenomenal, the atmosphere delightful... I could not give any higher praise to this place!

Pros: Food, Service, Atmosphere
Cons: NONE
