I had dinner here with my wife. The place is beautiful and the staff were all great. We were given some fancy bread and butter when we sat. Next came some complimentary amuse bouche, 2 watermelon soda shot glasses, very nice :)
Menu is neat and they have some different stuff here. Wine list is expensive, was tough to find a bottle under $50.
I had the $14 Qualicum Bay Scalllop - dish was small, just a few bites and was ok but nothing special. 3/5
She had the $19 Puffed Quebec Foie Gras - this was very good, melt in your mouth great appy. 4/5
I had the $19 Ricotta Agnolotti - Dish looked cool but once again, small portion. There was a little bit of pasta and it wasn't the delicate agnolotti that I was expecting from a place of this caliber, it was kind of doughy. Also there was a parmesan foam that came with it. Neat touch but I would have prefered some fresh parmigiano reggiano sprinkled over it. 3/5
She had the $27 Chicken Breast - The chicken was cooked PERFECTLY and this was an excellent meal. Lots of flavors going on here. 4.5/5
I had the $9 Dark Chocolate Praline Bar - This was WOW Good! Excellent, came with a little semi freddo on the side.. 5/5
She had the $9 Diva's Carmelized Silton Cheesecake - This was also great and she loved it. 4/5
This meal ended up being $159 taxes in with a bottle of Reisling.
I have mixed feelings about the food here.
My appy wasn't that good, hers was awesome.
My entree wasn't that good, hers was awesome.
I decided to eat lunch here and try some other items..
I dine alone this time, same fancy bread, same complimentary amuse bouche but this time was orange soda, nice again :)
Appetizer: I had the $12 Diva Roll - Looked like an amazing and perfectly crafted roll, tasted kind of boring. 3/5
Entree: I had the $28 Duck Breast - Was cooked perfectly medium rare and was a great dish Also a very small portion.. 4/5
Dessert: I had the $9 Dark Chocolate Praline Bar AGAIN it was that good. 5/5
I also had a $5.25 Cappuccino with dessert. 3/5 It was the most expensive cappuccino I've probably ever had and it was Average. I can get an excellent cap for $3.25-$3.75. Why is this one $5.25 if you make it worse then my usual coffee bars? I guess because you are a fancy place you can over charge for this.
This lunch came to $61 taxes in.
Overall this place is beautiful. They do unique stuff with food, the portion sizes are tiny so you have to order appy, entree, dessert at the very least. Not recommended for hungry people.
Food was average - amazing depending on what items I tried, kind of makes it hard to rate this place for me.
I would return sometime..
