I've always wanted to try this restaurant and finally decided to come here for our date night. As soon as you walk into the cozy tucked away restaurant, you can smell the yummy aroma of whatever they are whipping up in the kitchen. That was really nice. But I was slightly taken aback when the host, who was also our waiter gave us a dirty look & then jokingly claimed that we did not have a reservation, even though we had made one weeks before. He thought he was funny, even when he located my name in the computer.
The food was good though, but pricey. You would really have to spend a lot of money there to fully enjoy the menu. We tried the Escargot (plain & tiny) , the Veal Chops (good sized & yummy) and the Sweetbread, which is definitely something different - it's actually the culinary name for the thymus (throat, gullet, or neck sweetbread) of the calf. Good flavours & unique texture.
Overall the ambiance is nice, and food okay, but terrible service. It's also in a bad location, tucked away on Robson Street in a dark corner. The metal barred windows totally throws people off, too.
I really wanted to like this place, but the snooty waiter ruined it. He was quite abrupt & rude. =(
