Here are some of our thoughts (please listen to the podcast for a complete description):
Ambiance / description of place / music / WIFI
Chris – Dark brown tables and chairs, light yellow walls and random styles of art (sculptures and paintings) along the wall.
Margaret – Nice neighbourhood family restaurant. Contemporary music.
Greeting / reception
Chris – I got there before Margaret, was seated quickly, friendly staff.
Chris – Most dishes are in the mid-teens.
Margaret – Reasonable for the quality.
Chris – It’s not an exhaustive menu, but it’s got a great selection of appetizers, pastas, salad, entrees, and even desserts.
Margaret – Small yet interesting menu.
Smell / look / taste of Seafood fettucini
Chris – seafood and pasta cooked perfectly, but what made this amazing was the texture and taste of the cream sauce. Very rich and filling!
Smell / look / taste of Chicken Quesadillas
Margaret – sauce was sweet. Had red peppers and chicken – was pretty plain (I like mine better). Had flecks of something but I can’t remember. I don’t know if it was on the menu but I should have ordered guacamole as well.
Smell / look / taste of Bailey’s Cheesecake
Chris – I love Baileys, I love cheesecake, perfect blend. Like the little touches such as the cocoa dusting around the shape of a fork. Tasted great, but I should have gone with something with a greater citrus taste to not clash with the fettuccine.
Why we chose menu items
Chris – Chef’s special.
Margaret – I didn’t want anything heavy – I had Aquacize class an hour later.
Service / wait staff knowledge
Chris – Minor – No pepper or parmesan grinding.
Margaret – Good service, pleasant waiter.
Overall dining experience
Chris – Very pleasant and relaxing. Chef came out to make sure that the meal and service were okay – seemed genuinely concerned and interested in our reply.
Margaret – Good, good
Would we go again
Chris – Absolutely
Margaret – Yes
