Review - Sopra Lounge

Hi all, I went to Sopra Lounge last Friday, and just wanted to offer a review. This is a new lounge created by Massimo Capra and Paolo Paolini of Mistura, and its right upstairs. I had read in Toronto Life that Massimo said that this was going to be a mellow place, tapas style food, and you'd never have to yell over the i brought a friend there to catch up...
We had to yell over the music all was a live band, but they were pretty ok so i really didnt mind it. the crowd is about middle aged (im in my 20s but i still enjoyed the evening)
Food: we shared the pancetta wrapped scallops w/ fennel salad...the scallops were great, perfectly cooked. we also had frites with lemon and parmiggiano & lemon aiolo...very lemony, tasted a little burnt, but all in all would have been good if it was a little less cooked. For dessert we shared the cookie platter...GREAT! 8 cookies (4 different kinds) for only $7. I love the fact that you can get ice cream sandwiches, or a mini cheese tray, or cookies at a lounge. I think that was the best part of the evening.
I would definetly return because I like the vibe, and interesting offerings, and I think they just have to work out the kinks because they're new and I'm sure they'll get better. I'd love to know what others think of this place.
