We went there on a Tuesday evening we had to wait for about 5-10 min. To get a table for three. Even larger groups didn't have to wait longer. The Garden is beautiful I didn't expect something like that! Flowers are nicely set and there is even a tree inside Jardin Nelson. The menu has a lot to offer...but we... More

Ate here for a very late lunch on a friend's recommendation. Live music, good drinks, good food, friendly service, all positives. Had a large salad, a pizza, & 2 alcoholic drinks for $60 w/tip. Great spot.

My boyfriend and I decided to visit this restaurant after hearing many good reviews. However we were quite disappointed with the food. I had the lapin crepe($19.75) and it was very salty and overseasoned and my boyfriend ordered the seafood crepe($25) and he found it to be very bland and tasteless.The portion sizes were very plentiful and the prices were...

Went early around 4:30 and had no problem acquiring a seat in the back garden room. Quickly filled up and there was quite a line upon leaving. Sangria and appetizers were grreat. Had the lobster salad and the presentation was wonderful. Excellent experience.

There is no question that you are seated in a garden -- it is so stunningly beautiful to a plant geek like me! The weather was horrible - rain was pouring and the huge umbrellas Almost kept the rain off of us. We were determined! Our waiter was a delightful young man who gave us truly excellent service, it could... More

This garden restaurant is quaint - located in an open area between buildings. Trees create the setting, Jazz band made for an upbeat lunch vibe. Birds and bees (real ones) were aplenty. We waited over an hour between sitting down and receiving our meals. Food was quite tasty.

Another beautiful terrace in old downtown. Came here at a local recommendation for good crepes and was not disappointed! Friendly staff although we had the surliest waitress. Good menu and background live music - would definitely recommend this spot.

The boys and I were there on a crowdy and beautiful Sunday after a walk at Le Vieux Port de Montreal. The place is very popular and everyone wishes to be seated in the outdoor patios. It is the best place to be, I agree, and we waited a bit longer to have access to it. Waiters were very polite... More

Visited Jardin Nelson on Place Jacques Cartier for lunch with 2 couples. Given that it is located in the centre of a very touristy area, I was pleasantly surprised at how charming the service was. The wait to get in wasn't too long and the waitress who served us was were very pleasant and attentive. There is live, low key... More
