Flew into Montreal from Wash DC and we had just about 24 hours in town. Birthday gift from my husband to visit Montreal to have dinner. Never been to Montreal and we had very little time, so restaurant choice was very important. Chose this restaurant from the reviews on trip advisor. Either Montreal has hundreds of superb chefs or I... More

This must be the best meal I have ever eaten. It is difficult to put the feeling into words... I read the tripadvisor posts....and chose the restaurant on that basis. No description here could do justice to the experience we had. "Experience" is a deliberate choice...it was not just a meal. This is a relatively small restaurant where you get... More

We tried during the taste montreal event. Long time we wanted to go and were not dissapointed. Service is really, really nice. Cook came to ask if we liked his plates and this is always great to see. With one bottle of wine, it cost us 120$, add probably another 40-50$ if it's not during the taste MTL event. It's... More

We tried this restaurant as part of the Taste Montreal event. The amuse-gueule was a squash risotto that was tasty but a bit dry to my taste. Then my wife ordered the creamy leek soup, cheese and crunchy granola. It was DELICIOUS. The best soup I have had in a while (well, my wife had it). I had ordered the... More

My girlfriend and I (who don't speak a word of French) stopped in here after reading some positive reviews and were very happy to find that they weren't at all misleading. Our server was very friendly and while her English was far from perfect she was more than happy to switch to it. The food was delicious and well presented,... More

The beet salad, the foie gras, the fish and chips and the surf and turf were amazing!! Great dining experience: great food, great place, great service, pretty good price! The deserts were not fantastic, and its the only negativ aspect, but the rest was excellent!!

Our first visit, with 6 adults and 2 kids. The restaurant is located close off the Jacques-Cartier bridge, so fairly easy access for South Shore folks. Parking is OK on the streets, found space less than a block away, and the neighborhood is bohemian chic. The resto has a main room, and a smaller enclosed room in the back -... More

My husband, daughter and I came for the first time tonight. It was recommended by a colleague who is from Montreal, as well as the concierge in our hotel, and the great reviews on TA. The friendly hostess welcomed us right away, led us to our table, and offered us the choice of English menus even though we were being... More

Celebratory dinner out with daughters and friends as university graduates went seriously off course when our server ( man in blue shirt) decided to treat us poorly because we didn't speak French. It was clear to all of us we were not being treated the same as others. Service was the worst I have ever had. Our second bottle of... More
