After a reservation we got there for a nice dining experience. Food was delicious, service excellent and staff courteous.

We are visiting Montreal and have been less than impressed by the proliferation of really bad service. On Friday night we searched urbanspoon for a restaurant that provided an overall dining experience, great food paired with great service. This restaurant was highly reviewed so we made a reservation. It's a lovely restaurant run by a husband and wife team. The... More

We made a reservation online and mentioned that it was our anniversary trip. Natalie greeted us and got us settled, and Bastian came to discuss our food selections. He was honest and friendly and did not try to talk us out of appetizer portions but did point out one that would have been too small to share. His recommendations were... More

We found this charming place for drinks on Friday night. We were warmly greeted by owners Natalie and Bastian even though it was clear that they were getting ready to close. No rush! Their passion for food and service was so genuine we couldn't wait to return the next night to try the food. No disappointment here. Bastian prepared a... More

You won't be disapointed with this one. The place looks good, cosy but modern, the food was excellent and there is an excellent choice of wine. the owner is French, and unlike (I'm joking) most of his compatriotes, absolutely friendly. If you have the chance to get a silver spoon of fork, enjoy it, but please leave it in the... More

Unassuming, but quiet, good for relaxing or a chat with friends. Unusual menu with interesting, well cooked choices. I had Alaskan black cod with wild Patagonian pepper and black Chinese rice, and I don't think that is a combination you will find in many places. Many plates come in starter or main sizes, so you can play with the menu... More

This elegant and warm restaurant never ceases to deliver the finest dishes. Such an attention to detail. Every ingredient seems masterfully selected. The fois gras is just incomparable. Good to note: some items are available as half portions so you can make it to dessert (or taste everything!).

Simply put Bastien and his team excel at what they do due to experience and the desire to please the most important aspect of their business...clients. Every visit to this restaurant is a pleasure and often an educational experience. Discovering new great wines, foods and spices is par for the course. Try it...you'll love it...honestly!

This review is long overdue given that my husband and I have been regular clients for some time now. We continue going back given the caliber of the service that always includes excellent wine suggestions (from a private import selection), the refined menu with a great array of different dishes (tartar of doe, sting ray) along with some classics (phenomenal...
