Lovely decor and atmosphere. We loved our window table with a view of the lake, and the comfortable chairs encouraged us to relax and savour the experience. My husband loved his oysters and steak, and as a vegetarian I found enough choice to also have a lovely meal. My only suggestion would be to broaden the range of wines available by the glass . Great evening and will look forward to returning.

Really enjoyed our night. The food and service were fantastic. And thank you for making my daughters night with a special dessert with Happy Birthday on it. She loved it. Special mention to the French maître d. Sorry I didn’t get her name but what an asset to your restaurant. We will definitely be back.

It was busy because of the 1/2 price Oyster special. Despite that we still received excellent service and prompt delivery of drinks and food. The restaurant was super busy which was great.

We were greeted by Cassandra who was absolutely lovely and down to earth. Wish she was our server for the rest of the lunch because once we sat down, we felt like the wait staff were looking down on us as if we didn't belong in the restaurant. Our waiter was quite abrupt and unsmiling with us, but with the older (probably richer) clients sitting next to us, he was cracking jokes and making them laugh. We were enticed to go to your restaurant because of the Bluff oyster promotion. The food was beautiful and so fresh. But honestly, the pretentious atmosphere, seemingly encouraged by our waiter and the guests sitting around us, really put a damper on it. We've never felt like we didn't belong in a restaurant where we were paying good money to eat. We're just regular working class people wanting to have a nice lunch out once on a while, but since we weren't spending hundreds of dollars on our meal, we really felt like we were regarded as being low class. When we went to pay, the maitre d', who was too busy to greet us when we first walked in (which is why Cassandra did), muttered a "thank you" as he briskly walked away from the cash register. We think it's because he saw we selected not to add an additional tip. Was definitely not as nice an experience as we hoped for.
