    I love Mediterranean food. However, our Salmon and shish kafta were overcooked and dry. Our server was attentative. I would only go back for drinks as the beer and wine menus are extensive.

    Absolutely delicious! We had no idea this restaurant was even here - don’t be fooled that it shares a building with a gas station and market. The food quality was beyond our expectations! I highly highly recommend the lamb shank - it was fall off the bone tender. The baba ganoush was smokey and creamy. The tomato kibbeh was flavorful. The gravy on the truffle fries was different than your usual truffle fries, almost like a poutine. Very tasty. The beer list is quite extensive with over 100 on tap, many local. Regarding the service- I saw a few reviews saying service was slow. Remember restaurants are short-staffed no matter where you go right now. Be kind and patient. Our experience was actually quite different though; our server was right on top of our drink and food orders with no lag. We’ll be back 🙂

    Really enjoyed the dinner. I would like baked potato as an option because I cannot do mashed with milk products. I also am limited to vegetables because of allergies, so plain sweet potatoes would also be a good choice. So I ended up with just the plain salmon with no sides of any kind.

    Spotlight over the indoor tables are far too bright, impacting an ability to fully enjoy the meal. I would recommend the outdoor seating, even in winter as a result.

    Very unique venue; not only is it a restaurant, but there is also stuff to do there- bowling and a golf simulator. In addition to that we enjoyed perusing the gourmet market and picking up some yummy desserts and snack items to take home.

    Made a reservation at 8:00. Still had to wait 30 minutes. I could tell the hostess forgot about us. Then our dinner was half great and half bland. It’s super sad cause I really wanted this place to be good but it was jus mediocre. Definitely doesn’t warrant the cost they charge. The best plate is the lamb chops. Worst plate is any fish they serve

    Server was not aware we were her table, so it took a while to get our drinks started. Food was good, but some meals were not warm enough. The fish and chips were good as well as the burger. There is a Mediterranean menu, but the shawarma lacked flavor. Great bar!
