Firing on all cylinders

I was stunned, first off, by the decor here. Absolutely the coolest looking place in the city. Modern Latin revolutionary theme in this 100 year old bank had my jaw drop right after we entered.

The service was impeccable, as I'd expect from Mike Mitton, a favourite of our from his days at Allegro. He works the floor like Vikram at Vijs and is the consumate host still. He walked us through the new menu, I understand it just got changed this week, and it was fantastic. We had the Spanish Paella, as classic and well executed as I've seen, spicy bbq green beans, wild salmon on pork confit tacos and finished with this wicked spicy hot chocolate, on the house!

The cocktail list is excellent, but I didn't get a chance to delve too deep. My understanding is there will be a bar opening there on the top floor in September. The room has been built and we got a tour. this will be a hot spot for sure when it opens.

I'm surprised by the earlier review, plus I thought I might be first here, but perhaps it was opening kinks that have since been worked out.

Will replace Chambar as my destination du jour. . .

This place needs no help from me, it's packed all the time! The cocktails are top shelf, the people outstanding and there is a real dedication to execution. Chef Nico is doing truly innovative cuisine, but with a fantastic maturity and a wonderful tip of the hat to classic approaches. Watch out for the bartender, he's nuts, and one of the best in the biz.

Love this place, the chef is clearly very talented, and his dedication to the local region is to be applauded. I don't get out to Main street often, but when I do, this is the place I go. Great for a civilized dinner in a cozy setting, and the service staff are attentive, professional and very knowledgeable.

The BEST nightspot in Van

This place is everything. There is a super intimate and funky dining room with fantastic, I'd say modern french, dining. Huge portion sizes for fine dining and excellent service. They have a beautiful patio in the summer, but the real kicker for this place is the lounge downstairs. This place is so secret there is no sign, only a metal door in the back alley. It's always going off, and so makes for a great date night, dinner, drinks and dancing all in one. When I'm downtown, this is one of the only places I'll go.

Consistently Fantastic

I have to say, this place is genuine, with care, attention and very high standards. I was in the night this other group of negative reviewers were in (all the same group fyi) and they were tearing the place up, it was devastating to see in such a normally classy place. The owner is a sweetheart, she always goes way above and beyond for us, I think she's there 7days a week!

I can't imagine why these people are trying to sabotage this beautiful gem of a place, I hope they never go back, because this is our regular haunt, 2-3 times a week! The food has great value if you love excellent food, and the people are truly, honestly genuine.

I just stumbled on this site and can't wait to contribute more reviews!
