The food was prepared extremely well and our waiter (Gavin) was very professional with extensive knowledge of the menu items and their preparation. He was able to answer all of our questions and offer suggestions based on our preferences. We sat outside and the ambiance was very pleasant with minor street noise, even given the large number of passerby’s in that area.

Très belle brasserie, bien située mais par contre beaucoup trop bruyant et le poisson que j'ai pris était trop cuit et pas assez de garniture.

The evening we visited it was packed and we had made a reservation as it was a birthday dinner. I had informed our server of this and they’d promised to do something special for dessert. However, because of the crowdedness, this was forgotten. They apologized, but it did take the surprise away when the dessert had to be taken away and brought back with a sparkler in it. This was also not the only mix-up that occurred during the evening, but it was certainly the biggest one. The food was good, however. Once they learn to handle busy evenings, this would be a nice place to have dinner.

Visited Montréal for the day. This was the perfect place to end our tine in the city. Food was very good, service friendly and wonderfully attentive. One in our party need gluten-free, the restaurant technically has no GF bread but our server retrieved some don a breakfast place nearby. She didn’t need to do that - wonderful gesture. We’ll be back.

Anniversaire de mariage nous étions 4 personnes mais rien n ‘a été souligné par le resto même si on m’a préalablement demandé lors de ma réservation. Une chose qui est très désagréable c est le bruit de la vaisselle lorsque les tables sont desservies, les paniers sont au bout du bar oufff.

This was my third time and the overall experience was absolutely horrible! Lenght of the service unbelievably long; waiter was courteous but overwhelmed by the situation. We were only 4, the restaurant was not full. They forgot an item on my order, the bills were not properly calculated after clarifying twice how we wanted them. My brother's plate was cold. My latte was cold, we both returned them and asked that they be warmed up. So this is my last time.

Nourriture décevante et pas à la hauteur du prix demandé : magret de canard trop cuit, carottes dures, tartare vraiment trop peu relevé, antipasti bâclé et liste de desserts décevante.
Le service était trop rapide. Bref, expérience vraiment décevante.

Our server Maude really made our experience wonderful. Her upbeat attitude and willingness to get the right wine for us was terrific. The restaurant is beautiful and food delicious. We all had steak which was very tender and cooked to perfection. The manager also stopped by to see how everything was, which added a personal touch.

Le restaurant est super beau, les plats sont délicieux, mais le service que nous avons eu était moyen. Nous avons attendu longtemps avant d’avoir de l’eau ou simplement un “bonjour ça ne sera pas trop long” Je posais mes questions à la serveuse et me faire un signe de chut et ne pas porter attention a mes questions a trois reprises, c’est insultant. L’autre commis aurait du attendre que la serveuse ait fini avec nous avant de lui poser ses questions. En plus, j’ai été plutôt étonné que le jus d’orange soit 15$ pour 1L qui est probablement pas mesurer, j’ai demander s’il était frais pressé, on m’a dit que c’était du jus Oasis. 15$ c’est plutôt cher! Je comprend que c’est un restaurant, qu’il y a des coûts, etc. Cependant, ça fait aucun sens!

Food was amazing but service could have been better. Still not terrible service though, by any means.
Ordered the chicken and waffles and the waffles were way too sweet. Would’ve rather had a plain waffle with maple syrup than a sugared waffle.
Shared the platter of baked patisseries and it was AMAZING!
Beautiful restaurant, and overall very good experience! Definitely recommend it.
