We ate here twice during our recent stay in Montreal. We were staying two blocks away from the restaurant and it was awesome. The decor is beautiful and a great vibe. The staff are wonderful.

Highs: * The charcuterie plate with delicious preserves. * The excellent house beer. * The fun decor and atmosphere. * The friendliness of the staff. Lows: * I was brought the wrong order (fish & chips instead of beef with risotto), resulting in me getting my plate after the rest of the table had finished half of theirs. * The... More

I had a pleasant time here. It was a perfect match for a Friday night: good food, great wine and helpful service. I do recommend the trout which you can find a good wine in a extensive wine list. Oh, please try the nibbles: those caramelized pecans are such a nice treat.

Excellent service, fun atmosphere and good wine list. But the food was disappointing. The duck parpadelle was a bad mix of tastes, my wife did not like it at all, asked if she could have something else and the waiter charged both plates. My fish bouillabase had little taste and the ray had a weird texture.it was my second time... More

The restaurant's name is a play on words and, depending on how you pronounce it, either sounds like the preserves, as in the pickled vegetables and eggs on offer that are also sold to take home, or "the idiots are waiting on us." Cute, but not a bit of foreboding I hoped. The restaurant came recommended to us by a... More

Not our first time in this local restaurant. We were four friends having a late dinner. We all had appetizers which were average (boar cake, salmon, gnocchi - very good and venison tartare). We also had a main to share, the skate which was good. Our mains were another issue: two of us had the venison tartare as a main... More

I ordered a bavette that was almost cold, I had to send it back to the kitchen. They didn't bother preparing a new one, and reheated it so that it wasn't cooked the way I asked. The food is over priced, and we would have expected a better service. We were 4 and all ordered different things, we were hungry... More

I love the restaurant! The food is yummy, fair priced, fresh and the presentation is appealing. I like that every night of the week there is something on sale on the menu. The night I went it was the wine, really cheap and delicious. The menu changes often, depending on seasons and availability of ingredients. I went a few times... More

We went there for a band mate reunion and I gotta say I was impressed. I was stunned by their short but effective menu. The appetizers aren't really for me (lots of homemade canned things), someone at our table took the gnocchi and they were so so. The main course selection is excellent, relatively vegetarian friendly, you'll definitely find a... More

Nice ambience and great menu, just not executed as well as it could have been. My food was really nice but my wife's was pretty unimaginative and lackluster... Waitress was really surly but the other guys were nice. If you're looking for this style of cooking, I would recommend La Salle a Manger over Les Cons... Still a great little... More
