Perfect NYE dinner!!

Food and service is awesome! Went there for NYE and the fixed menu was amazing. Setting was very organized, very creative and beautiful presentation. Could be a little pricey but it is worth it.

Everything we ordered was delicious. The Alberta Beef was truly fabulous! The service was good, and every dish was tasty and beautifully presented. Prices are commensurate with the experience.

We dined in this relatively expensive restaurant in Rue St Paul. the place was popular among locals. The bartender was busy, and pretty, more so after a few sips of the French wine. Food was ok, I personally like the polish restaurant a few blocks away. But the wife lived the place so if she likes it so should you.

Just had a meal during Mtl a Table! (If you don't know what that is you are missing out!!). Meal consisted of 3 courses of Terroir cooking and was delicious. My wife had the fish and I had the Bavette. Both succulent but the apple dessert was sublime. Definitely will return!! Service was consistent and the waiter was very friendly!

Location: St. Paul East in the old port. The closest subway is Champ-de-Mars and it's less than a ten-minute walk. Street parking is available though sparse, and there's a lot not too far from the restaurant, but I think the going rate is $15. The place: Gorgeous! Very classy and cozy, with high ceilings and windows facing out onto St.... More

Laurent Godbout is an artist and his creativity shines through in all of his dishes .Unfortunately our visit did not meet expectations .Let me start with the positives . We were there as part of this year's Montreal a Table and this was the first of several restaurants... More

Wonderful restaurant in a lively district by the port. Excellent menu and service. This was our first evening in Quebec and set the tune for the rest of the experience. I have never had a tastier foie gras - light and creamy, very different from what we get in the US.
