Yes there is a lot of hype to this property, but its well deserved in my book. We came across the boarder to taste the Foie Gras in all of its glorious preparations ( we did 4 different dishes ) . So, we were seated at the counter just a few feet from the kitchen, which in my mind, was... More

One of the best restaurants for foie gras. The restaurant is cramped with wooden tables close to each other, with a long wooden bar and noisy patrons. You will not find table cloths and classical French dishes at this restaurant. But if you are looking for innovative Quebec French dishes with a large variety of foie gras, you will not... More

Absolutely incredible. I'll keep it short...My companion and I had maple syrup drinks, Fois poutine, duck in a can, and maple deserts. Having traveled the world- I can say without equivocation- this was the most satisfying dinner I've ever consumed.

Foie Gras overload. Wow. Crazy decadent rich meal. This place was packed with a line out the door. It has a nice vibe (definitely not "fine dining" but more hip gastropub) and the waitstaff were really nice and took time to give us specials, answer questions about the menu, and give us reccs. The food was pretty good but definitely... More

A casual dining experience, my friends and I were overdressed. Staff were very friendly. Our table wasn't ready but the hostess made us feel as though she would do her best to get us seated. Our waiter explained the menu in a fun manner. We loved our table where we could watch the food being prepared. We had the foie... More

We were looking forward to eating here for four years. Finally made it and were disappointed. One of the main problems Is the portion size which are huge - so large that after eating my herring appetizer with pickled onions and creme fraiche, (delicious) I was feeling uncomfortable. My "special" boeuf bourguignon came with squash gnocchi smothered in melted cheese... More

For starters there is no sign on the property so very easy to walk by this very unassuming spot. Not sure what to think about that, maybe a bit of arrogance, maybe a desire to keep it low profile. Staff was wonderful and knowledgeable. Food was very good to excellent (she had the happy pork chop and I went for... More

On our first visit, I was blown away by the duck in the can. The second visit was pretty good too but wasn't as impressive. The quality of the food is excellent and consistent; foie gras is also excellent. The quantity of food is generous and tasty. The duck in a can is tasty and fun to eat, the pig's... More

The food was decent and expensive. Overall, we were satisfied with the quality of the food and the foie gras did make a difference to the servings. However, there is way too much publicity about the place and the staff think too much of themselves because of that. The truth is that it a place that serves tasty food, like... More
