Don't bother going. From the moment we stepped in to the restaurant we got attitude from the host/ owner.
The waitres didn't know her wine selection and couldn't recommend a good white wine. Appetizers were very small especially when we told her we are sharing between 7 ppl. If she was smart she should have recommended we order Double, and we specifically asked her if it was enough to share. Don't get me started on the main course. We asked the waitress to recommend a large pasta for my kids to share, well she brings this pasta dish that would be enough for a small toddler. We then asked to speak to the manager thinking he will help, well no chance. He argues with me over pasta..... Buddy, it's pasta. Cost nothing.
Don't get me wrong, I have no problem paying top dollar to a good restaurant but don't charge me downtown prices when it's in aurora.

My family and I had a terrible experience last weekend at this so called "family restaurant" where we were invited to celebrate my mother's birthday. The owners made us and our children (3 month old daughter and 2.5 year old son) feel extremely unwelcome. They were very inhospitable to our family and even asked us to leave the restaurant as according to them our son was "too disruptive to their staff and other patrons." I'm not going to deny that we have a busy toddler who does not always want to sit still, but he was behaving as a typical toddler often does and we were trying to manage his behaviour in the best way we knew how to minimize inconvenience and disruption to everyone at the restaurant. Instead of being empathetic and understanding, the owners were harsh, aggressive and lashed out at us in a disrespectful manner. They put us in a very uncomfortable and embarrassing situation in front of everyone. The way that they dealt with us was quite appalling and unexpected for a restaurant that prides itself on welcoming families with children. As we were leaving, the junior wait staff had to apologize for their owners’ outrageous shouting at us. They too thought it was not acceptable and highly unnecessary.
Before booking her party, my mom purposefully asked if it would be ok that there is a toddler and a baby in a stroller invited to the restaurant and the owners did not have a problem with that. It turned out to be quite the opposite. Not only were they un-accepting of a toddler in their restaurant, but they also did not accommodate us for the space we required near our table for my daughter’s stroller. Our main waiter made it seem like we were always in his way, when we were truly trying to minimize disturbances to their work and asked about the best placement of the stroller when we first arrived. Even worse, there was not even a baby change table in the washrooms to change an infant. We had to change my daughter on a bench in a cold hallway near the bathrooms.
Please save your sanity and nerves and do not come here if you have a family. Unless your children are well behaved angels 100% of the time, you will not feel comfortable or be welcomed here!

Visited from the west coast, we went for our anniversary. Our server was excellent, and the food was great. We were well looked after, and enjoyed the atmosphere. Would recommend to friends.
