Incredible venue - absolutely charming and an experience just walking into the restaurant. Great menu where the protein definitely serves as the star in the dishes I had (Scallops and Duck). Would recommend to anyone visiting the Hunter.

There was quite a wait between the entrees (which was the highlight for me) and the mains, to the point where my partner was getting quite impatient. Thankfully, the desserts won him over and he thoroughly enjoyed his ice cream sandwich.

We hadn't been here since it had a different name and chef so were a bit apprehensive. We did as the food was spectacular and the service was fantastic. Will definitely be going back.
