In honour of The Forge’s 40th Anniversary in 2009, The Forge closed for a major renovation that would last almost a year. The result: an inspired farm-to-table menu and lifestyle approach to dining are all elements of The Forge’s new attitude. The award-winning restaurant has undergone a total makeover, the overall design and décor executed by Francois Frossard. walls of hand-carved blonde wood and antique smoked mirror, octopussian lilac and white crystal chandeliers, and an eclectic mix of upholstered and metal furniture. The elimination of more than 100 seats has created the ambiance of a large private home where every diner’s seat is “the best in the house.” The open floor plan of the 6,000-square-foot space allows guests to see and be seen.Executive Chef Christopher Lee presents a 65-item menu along with Dessert Menu by Chef Alycia Delany. Enomatic's offer guests 80 wines by the ounce and Mixologist Justin Maas presents an incredible list of craft cocktails. <br /><br />

Cioppino features beautifully simple Tuscan style cuisine in stunning surroundings indoors or on an outdoor terrace overlooking the Atlantic. Classic Italian comfort favorites make Cioppino perfect as a new favorite for any night of the week; while gorgeous ambience makes it just as relevant for any special occasion.

"We had an amazing brunch with excellent service from Karen. It was Father's Day and very busy but the quality of the experience did not decline. I was surprised to see Prosecco being served instead of champagne. For $105 a person ,a quality champagne should be offered to guests. Besides that, I was pleased with the dining experience."

Praised as truly authentic classic Italian cuisine, Il Forno Ristorante's refined approach to Italian gastronomy features the finest local and imported ingredients. Indulge in dishes of our home made Pappardelle Pasta with Wild and Porcini Mushrooms or Grilled Veal Chop al Rosmarino to entice your appetite. Then revel in the simple, but rich flavor of the Chef’s signature entrée of Veal Ossobuco alla Milanesa and pair with a glass of wine from the outstanding wine selection. End with our seductive Mousse di Ciocolatto al Grand Marnier. The ambiance and atmosphere are enhanced by Il Forno's rustic, open kitchen with wood-burning oven, offering a warm and intimate setting for your dining experience. Whether you are enjoying a cocktail at our full service bar or dining al fresco on the terrazza or listening to live music in the dinning room, we are sure to make your dining experience a memorable one.
