I went there 2 years ago and didn't appreciate the service so i've never went back until then. My friends invited me at this restaurant for my birthday because yes the food is really good, expensive but worths the price. However, it was simply the worst service ever. Even worst then my first time! Arrogant from the beginning until the... More

Excellent business dinner in this small-ish restaurant - the size makes it cozy, so definitely need to reserve for parties of 4 or more. Great food - but limited on vegetarian choice - 1 appetizer and 1 main for us veggies. But that was delivered very well, but limited veg choice means if you are not in to Mushrooms, this... More

It is refreshing to go to a restaurant that is not afraid to put Bison and Deer on the menu. Two seatings, 7pm and 9pm. Seems to always be full so make a point of making reservations. Friendly but sparse service. Bring your own bottle of wine, or two. They open, you pour. We enjoyed our meals but think that... More

Had a very pleasant lunch here. Their menu du midi included potage (a delicious salmon bisque that day) or salad du jour and dessert du jour (diced apples, cranberries, and oatmeal crumble) with several choices of plat. We had a beef dish and a nice-sized swordfish steak, both of which were very well prepared & flavorful and were accompanied by... More

We shared the poutine for starters and ordered the Duck Magret and Lamb Shank for main. The restaurant is well decorated with a reasonable noise level and staff are very attentive and helpful. It is bring your own wine although they do have a non-alcohol beer available. The food is delicious, although I think a little on the pricey side.... More

We were recommended to go there by our hosts at nearby BBV. No reservation and we got a table straight away but that was lucky! BYO so had bought some wine at nearby SAQ store. Friendly bilingual staff. Interesting menu, shared a shrimp ravioli starter, had beef and duck - all delicious and perfectly cooked and presented. A complimentary small... More

Visited back in May 2014 while on holiday in Montreal. Glad I did after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It is 'Bring Your Own Bottle' which is easy enough to do, we were staying at the Fairmont so we just went downstairs to an underground wine store. The restaurant itself is off the beaten track but don't let that... More

We went to this place following trip advisor recommendations. And they were right. The place is very nice, good atmosphere and the food is delicious! You have to be careful as you may walk by without seeing it. The area where it is located is not very touristy and not very nice, but it was OK. We were five and... More

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighborhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomized by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
