My husband and I had dinner at the Firehall Bistro tonight. It was our first time and we were pleasantly surprised by the simple yet elegant ambience and the great food. I especially liked the beef dish I had which I was told was marinated in red wine for 24 hours and then slow-roasted. It was tender and flavourful. My huband had the lamb shank which was also tasty. Although the wine list is limited the wines are quality and the prices as very reasonable. The service was friendly and attentive.
The only suggestion we made to the owners was to change the sign as it still reads "Seasons Bistro" which was the name of the previous establishment. For this reason it's a bit confusing to find for the first time. Also, a website would be helpful. Overall, this was a great dining experience and we will definitely dine there again.

My friends and I tried the Soho for lunch today. The view was nice so we thought the food might be ok too. We were wrong.
It took over 50 minutes for our food to arrive. I ordered the salmon burger which the menu described as "grilled salmon". When it arrived it was a processed salmon patty, exactly what I didn't want. I tried to eat it but it was bland. I told the waitress of this problem and she said I could order something else instead so I ordered the California burger. The burger patty and bacon were both burned, the patty was black and had the consistency of charcoal. I've never sent back two dishes but I couldn't eat it. I asked the waitress to take it away.
The service here is decent because the waitress was polite and friendly, she took both meals off my tab and covered the cost of one of two of my beer.
I won't be coming back to the Soho and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good burger.
