Truly, a fantastic culinary experience.
Phenomenal food and wine, perfectly paired, with service that was beyond reproach.
Before I go on, know that I am a self-professed amateur foodie and yes, I must admit, that as of the start I was somewhat biased being that my friend Tim is co-owner and co-chef, (who’s cooking I had never sampled) so from the first step over the threshold of the victorian home that was the setting of my friend’s surprisingly cozy and trendy wine bar, I really wanted everything to be great. And it was.
His business partner Brad, who I only met tonight and which cooked us some of the best food I’ve had in a long time, was to say the least, a pleasure to have briefly met. (both co-owner/chefs switch weeks where one is in the kitchen, while the other on the floor)
Basically; the food was very fresh, perfectly executed, and beautifully presented.
Rob; our perfectly sarcastic bartender/sommelier was amazing, and provided the timely “straight man” lines (and fantastic food pairings) as owner/chef Tim (who won’t shut up;), tried to be charming, working the room.
Seriously though, Tim is one of the most stand up, passionate people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and he, and his co-owner/co-chef Brad, are two of the most talented chefs in Ottawa.
Intimate/funky atmosphere (Jeff Buckley playing in the background), great prices, great wine, food, and fun.
Fantastic establishment run by people who care about wine, food and ultimately, your experience.
To our patrons, partners, friends and family.
We are proudly (yet humbly) approaching our first year anniversary; a milestone event in the life of any restaurant.
With our many thanks, we would like to invite you to our anniversary celebrations on July 4, 5, and 6.
We will be featuring a special three course Table d’Hote in support of our local Ottawa Humane Society. The menu will be perfectly paired with a three course wine flight. For every Table d’Hote purchased, we will be donating $10.00 to the animals and staff of the Ottawa Humane Society.
Be sure to check us out on Friday July 5th and Saturday July 6th as we will be featuring live Jazz. Weather permitting, we will be gracing Somerset St West with awesome sounds; if not, be sure that our dining room will be captivated by our selection.
Swag, Gifts, Handouts, Charity Raffle, Wine , Food, Laughter, Music and a perfect cozy environment to usher in the energy of a new and prosperous year. Who could ask for anything more!
Bring your appetites!!
