    For the cocktails, the art, the ambiance, the clientele, the celebrities, the music, the rooms and the cuisine … nine years later it remains just as relevant. [Eater 38 Member]

    This steel foundry from the 1800s has been transformed into an intimate inn boasting views of Lake Ontario. Expect a ping-pong room and restaurant with vintage furniture. Fun and Familiar. Read more

    Great breakfast with lots of selection + the house coffee is really good. Sit on the café side of the restaurant if you’re looking for a bit more of a casual vibe.

    We went for the easter special. 2 courses for $35 and bottles of wine $25. Everything tasted delicious and the service was great.

    Live music, contemporary art, fantastic food & a boutique hotel all in one trendy package. Tip: on a warm night you want to be in the VIP section upstairs- get there early to avoid another lineup.

    Loved the hotel. Very relaxed and cosy and a great part of town. But too expensive to stay for more than a couple of nights

    Cover is $10 after 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Or get here before 10 for dinner and drinks and stay for the dancing!

    Awesome bar, food, but most importantly: trivia. Fun and difficult enough to knock your trivia buff friends down a notch

    The scones as a start are gorgeous. I got the chicken and waffles after which, while good, did not compare to the scones in tastiness

    Burger is actually one of the city's best. Sushi is fine. Edamame is so good, huge portion. Good VQA selection by the glass. Desserts are the best kept secret, ESP sticky toffee pudding.

    Sangria with Tromba =😍😍😍 Lobster nachos, and the pork taco are amazing. Pass on the charcuterie board though, disappointing.

    It’s a nice place for a brunch but on the more expensive side. It’s also confusing trying to book a reservation as they has multiple locations.

    Anything Chef Anthony Rose lends his time to is worth tasting. But these days I'm feeling the Fish Tacos. Could be the patio weather. And the Patio.
