“I don't understand all of the positive reviews”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2010

I read the Trip Advisor reviews for this restaurant before going to Montreal and I was looking forward to eating dinner here. When I arrived (a Thursday night at about 6pm) I walked inside to find no waiters or hostess, but 4 old drunk guys and one scary old woman at the bar (with no bartender to be seen either). I waited by the hostess stand for 4-5 minutes and no one acknowledged me (except for the drunk old men who looked over their shoulders at me a few times). Finally I left and found somewhere else to eat. I have no clue what was going on with this place, but I know that I would never go back here and I am truly confused at all of the glowing reviews on this site.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2010

I've now been here twice in my two trips to Montreal, and I will make sure to come here every time I return to Montreal. Just outstanding food, service and ambiance. Everything was perfectly cooked, from the cream of broccoli soup to my meat sampler entree(portion of duck, filet mignon, foie gras, and Lamb shank). I can still taste all 4!!! And the desert was amazing as well. The owner is a very friendly French guy who greets you at your table throughout the evening to make sure you're happy. Just an overall great experience. Can't wait to return!!!

“outstanding food, outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2009

We found this restaurant through recommendation of our hotel (Loew's Vogue) concierge, because our favorite restaurant in Montreal (Les Halles) had closed.
We were not disappointed.
The staff was warm and expert, and the food was terrific- from appetizer through dessert.
We enjoyed the experience so much that we went back the next night for an equally gratifying time.

“Absolutely extraordinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2009

I plan to go back to this place EVERY TIME I visit Montreal - preferably more than once per visit. Exceptional food, welcoming ambience, reasonably-priced wine list - just a perfect spot.
