I never regret dropping in for a dinner at this spot. The service is always great. Fantastic wine and drink menu. Delicious food, quality is there. Ambience is romantic, but you can definitly go with friends and/or family and have a blast. Choose to sit in the train cart area, or restaurant side. I have never needed a reservation yet,... More

I enjoy cooking at home and I am usually underwhelmed by restaurant meals. My friend invited me to Resto Gare to celebrate my birthday and I was surprised to enjoy a very tasty meal - perfectly presented and served in elegant surroundings. We had reservations in the train car, however they suggested that we might enjoy the restaurant since there... More

Have been here for dinner a few times with different people. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Atmosphere is good. Tight quarters in the train car but no complaints

We have been coming to Resto Gare for years and have always been very pleased with both the quality and portions of the food. We took clients out for lunch on June 20th and all four of us enjoyed it very much. Loved the escargots and beef bourguignonne

The decor and the menu need refreshing. We sat in the restaurant part -- which is quieter and not as harshly lit as the railroad car. The ambiance is reminiscent of the 1950s, perhaps even unchanged since then. Our waiter was well-informed and helpful until our meal was over. Then he disappeared, and I had to search for him to...

The service was excellent, and the food was very good! Would return. Parking lot might be a little tough, thankfully there IS street parking available if you are willing to walk.

This restaurant is old and tired. The place looks run down and the service was substandard. We were a fairly large group and we waited a long time for our meals. I never wad asked if I wanted a drink. The portion sizes were very small, if you blinked you missed the vegetables I had and the Cesar salad made... More

Mr friend and I came for dinner - my first time, and for my friend, many times here. It is one of her favourites. We were seated in the train car which had a lovely atmosphere and ambience. Service was friendly and pleasant. I had the house salad followed by the bbq salmon special which was served on potato croquettes,... More

Very good food in a high class environment. Being in a train car was an interesting experience. The waiter was very good but kept nudging the drinks (we're water drinkers, mostly for health reasons) and I felt there was a little dance going on there with that. I highly recommend the maple pie for dessert. We each ordered a slice.... More
