"Villa Firenze is one or the finest Italian restaurants in the city. The food is simple, but the flavours are sophisticated. The service staff was polite and friendly, and the restaurant was generous with their portions. The pasta was cooked perfectly and their renowned stuffed Portobello mushroom was flavourful, even winning the non-mushroom lovers over."

"Catch came highly recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. We went there to celebrate a birthday and we got top-notch service and food. The staff went out of their way to make the evening special for us. The food was meticulously prepared so that the tastes and textures complement each other perfectly."

"The food at Il Sogno is like the restaurant's classic exterior -- it's unassuming in appearance, but once you checked out the inside, you'd be amazed. Presentation-wise, the food looks decent. The "wow" is in the chef's take on the ingredients' flavours and textures, the combination of which showcases the mastery of the cooking staff at Il Sogno."

At Bistro Rouge, the foundation of our food begins with the best ingredients. We partner with local food growers. Preparing these quality ingredients with respect and expertise gives our French cuisine its regional flavor.
