“Absolutely amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I wish this restaurant would close and move to my home town. Oh my gosh - this was THE BEST meal I have had in years!!!! The salad was extremely fresh and just the right amount. The confit tomato tart was scrumpscious - oh the mozzerella cheese was delicious! I also had the stuffed chiken breast and the marsella sauce was to die for!!!!
The service was outstanding. We were really hungry and knew that good food takes time so we asked for some bread (almost as soon as we sat down) and that was no problem -it came in seconds and they kept refilling it (which might not have been good since we ate so much of it lol).
My mother had the tomato soup which she described as "heavenly" She also ordered the beef carpaccio. Then she had the chicken as well.
If this had been a mediocre restauarnt we could never had eaten the amount of food we ate. But everything was SO good we ate and ate and ate.
When I return to Montreal I am going to ensure I go back for another meal!

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We ate at that restaurant last week and we couldn't believe how good the food was.
The service is excellent and we didn't have to ask for anything the waitress was always asking us if we needed something or if we were satisfied.
We were celebrating our friend's birthday and we were very happy with our choice of restaurant.
We will return shortly that's for sure.

“Creative cooking but amateur service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We ate at this restaurant on a Wednesday and the four of us enjoyed the tapas special dinner. It was a nice sampling of food that was more than enough for all of us. Unfortunately the restaurant had some problems with service at the top of that list.

We ordered wine with out dinner and the server delivered it in a bucket but then ran off to serve other tables. The first of our tapas arrived and the bottle still was not opened. We had to get the waitress's attention finally to open it as we did not have our own corkscrew.

The air conditioner in the ceiling dripped down on us toward the end of the meal. When pointed out to the staff, they did not seem to think it was a big deal. They did offer us another table but our meal was pretty much finished by them. When some splashed into a wine glass they did replace that glass of wine but that was it.

When I used the ladies room at the end of the evening to wash my hands, one of the glass sinks that were decorated with stones in the bottom did not drain.

They will have to do much better if they want to survive. Perhaps they are counting on overspill from line-up for the number one restaurant next door that is so popular it does not even need a sign.

“Fun !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Got there late tuesday when almost everyone had eaten and we ate at the bar. They had that 6 tapas for $29 deal so we tried 12 total and they were all great. All the workers real nice and happy to see you. We really enjoyed this place especially considering the place we were supposed to go wouldnt serve us because we were 8 minutes late. Definitely go to this place. You wont regret it
