Great food and great wine
Submitted Wednesday, October 5, 2005 - 9:32pm [Dine in]

I have enjoyed every visit I have paid to this place. The food is consistently great in flavour and presentation, and there is an excellent selection of wine by the glass. I don't remember ever being disappointed by either food or wine. The place is very crowded and noisy, which is not my cup of tea, but some people will enjoy this lively atmosphere.

Creative dishes with creative flavours
Submitted Wednesday, October 5, 2005 - 9:18pm [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed the experience. I can understand the wildly varying reviews previously submitted, as this restaurant offers very creative dishes with very creative flavours. In fact, after reading the menu, you often cannot predict what your dish will look or taste like. If you expect, say, typical Chinese flavour or typical western flavour, then you may be disappointed, but if you have an open mind, you will often be amply rewarded. To me, the presentation and flavours of their dishes are always excellent, and the service superb. I particularly like their ahi tuna, AAA Canadian beef, duck, seafood hot pot, and sablefish. Even though portions are not very big, the price is not very high either for what you get. Very good selection of tea and wine too. All in all, excellent value for a unique dining experience, even though their business has been so good since opening that the uphostery is looking a bit tired now. Remember that they don't take reservations, and in the evening, you often have to wait quite a while for a table.

Creme de la Creme
Submitted Tuesday, July 26, 2005 - 8:59pm [Dine in]

If you want the best, this is it, folks! Every single meal I have had here has been memorable, and the fond memory lingers in my mind for years. The French/Asian/Pacific Northwest fusion cuisine is hard to describe, but every single dish is absolutely delicious and often surprising in its flavour, such is the ingenuity of chef Robert Feenie. For those who are health conscious, take comfort in that the dishes are never greasy, so you don't feel overly stuffed afterwards, even after an 8-course meal. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for.
