I have eaten here 4 times over the years... Prior to living in Vancouver I would try to get here when I came to town. While it is a bit spendy, generally the quality of the food is worth it.
For my last visit, the sauteed wild mushrooms and the seared scallops were outstanding. Same went for the green beans with almonds, one of the specials for the evening. However, the lamb chops, while decently cooked seemed to be lacking in flavour (meaning the meat itself, not the sauce).
The calamari with dijon mustard sauce was quite disappointing- while the flavours were ok, the breading was quite soggy- perhaps the sauce would be better served on the side. Another not-so-good detail was that the accompanying bread was on the stale side- likely prepped a few (too many? ) hours earlier.
Service was very good, in terms of ambience, this is NOT a place for a quiet chat over dinner on a Friday night. Our reservations were for 9pm, and the place was hopping to the point that you have to speak quite loudly in order to have a conversation- which can feel tiring.
I will definitely return for those mushrooms...
