Visited from Winnipeg, looking for a tapas place. Saw roast duck on the menu, came mainly for that. Chef John suggested several dishes, starting with the steak tartare, bacon-wrapped dates, pork belly (his take on the Filipino classic, Lechon kawali), the scallops, and of course, the duck. Expecting a lot, Chef John delivered. The scallops were the best I've tasted (all across Canada & US), simply pan fried with a perfect crust adorned with cumin and spices. The take on Lechon Kawali was succulent, and came with a vinegar-chile dip. Simply good. The roast duck was perfect, juicy with a corn-potato compote. The steak tartare was not your ordinary fare; on bread like a bruschetta, it had Korean flavours to complement the raw meat with a little heat. And for the bacon-wrapped dates, it was a good interpretation of the Spanish tapas, drizzled with a balsamic reduction. I ate it all. The ambience was perfect, the service, and the food are what you'd expect from one of Canada's top restaurants. This is Windsor's best kept secret!

First & foremost, make reservations!! The word is out and when we arrived for our 8pm reservation, the place was packed. We were a bit early so we sat in the lounge area for about 15 minutes and then we were seated in the rear of the restaurant at a high-top table which afforded us a clear view of the kitchen through a window. We were able to watch as all the wonderful dishes were put out for the waiters to pick up. Excellent martinis and good selection of wines to enjoy with your tasty meal. We began with P.E.I. oysters - YUM - great selection! My husband had the Sea Bass and I had the steak. Presentation was very pleasing and our taste buds were not disappointed. Our server, Scott, was so friendly and answered my questions thoroughly. There are so many choices on the menu, I can't wait to go back. Apparently there will be a change in the menu as they change with the seasons. We travel a lot and have eaten in some pretty special restaurants, F&B is right up there with the best!!
Simply the best pizza we could have ever expected! We went into Walkerville Brewing Co and sat at the bar when Nicki highly recommended that we order some pizza from "next door." We couldn't resist after hearing her talk about it, she's a fantastic promoter :) Many thanks to George and Brian for their friendliness and hospitality, we appreciated the personal delivery to our table at Walkerville. We loved it so much that we made it our last stop before leaving town. Looking forward to our return trip to try more slices!
Awesome food. You’ll need to go a few times a year as food and beverage menus are seasonal.
*edit - this place is now a pizza place. Great taste and in the middle of the spectrum of your fancy - typical Windsor pizza
Best pie going in the city right now. The Windsor tastes like it's name.
Visiting from Michigan. Had a slice of "The Little Piggy". Excellent pizza!
Great cocktails! Try the basil, peppercorn and egg white! They serve small plates so lots of fun trying different foods and sharing. Try the Brussels sprouts, octopus ceviche and bacon wrapped dates! It’s a tiny venue so make reservations or it’s very tough to get in. It’s down a few stairs. Jeff was our server and he is great! Fun atmosphere!
Very worth the money. The food, drinks And atmosphere were well worth it. We ordered many different things off the fall menu, our favourites were definitely the hot apple cider the charcuterie board, and the bacon wrapped dates. The wait staff was amazing, Travis and Tori. I will definitely be going back. My friend and I had an amazing time.
Great pizza! The presentation was also very nice. I like the vegetarian and vegan options. I will definitely order again.
