Good Escargots

Nice cozy ambience. Friendly waiter. The escargot appetizer with herb, garlic and red wine sauce was good. Appetizer portion came with about 14 pieces of tender escargots, de shelled. Sauce great for dipping with bread. Complimentary bread served was limited to a few small slices. It came... read more

It is French based cooking that is adequate, but overpriced. try some of the other restauants along this strip like Florentia, Bolands, Positano and Simple Bistro

A very clean and casually elegant neighbourhood cafe (on Mount Pleasant with easy parking) which offers a very appealing Sunday Brunch. Service was excellent, attentive but unobtrusive. I enjoyed the boulin noir, my guest had the croque madame.....both very tasty and satisfying. We enjoyed an unrushed and leisurely brunch. The menu offered some very appetizing French-inspired dishes.....I will return to... More

We were so looking forward to a lovely French dinner and instead had an uninspired, tasteless meal. Like a previous reviewer, we had purchased a living social coupon. If this is their way of profiling their restaurant they have failed on every level. The service was good and the atmosphere quite nice however that was small compensation for a poor... More

It was our first time in this restaurant. The place is clean and elegant ,however food was really disappointing. We used a living social voucher . I am not sure if we were punished for using the living social voucher or regular menu food would be as horrible as living social special menu was. We live in the neighbourhood and... More

I had a mid size party like 12 adults and five kids. Although i had reserved the patio suddenly it was rainy and the just set up every thing inside and made a private party room for us. The service was great they were so friendly with us and kids. The food was ok and the price was resonable.

We have been to Celestin many times over the years (both during Summerlicious/Winterlicious and not). We have always had a good experience even though I see that the place seems to be having consistency issues. Chef and management have changed and it’s not quite as good as it once was but our experiences, for the most part, remain good. That... More

We took a look at the menu online and my partner really wanted to try this place. Unfortunately, it was a waste of over $100 that we'll never get back. The place was pretty dead for a Friday night, and now I understand why. My starter (foie gras) was terrible. I had to send it back. It really is not... More
