“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The food, the server, the atmosphere---everything involved with this restaurant was top notch. In addition, it was within walking distance of our hotel. One of our top three restaurants in Montreal.

“Fabulous lunch, appalling evening meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We enjoyed the food, ambiance and quality of this gorgeous restaurant at lunch time, so much so that we booked to go back for our last evening meal in Montreal. We were staggered by the extreme contrast. I would suggest going when it is quiet so that the staff and chef have the time and energy to give you the service and quality of food you would expect from this restaurant.

“EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I do not frequently go to a classic French restaurant but I will readily and easily recommend this establishment to anyone searching for great old fashioned French cuisine as well as impeccable service. Christoph, the Maitre D and Maxim, one of our waiters were so attentive and made the evening so pleasant that we would have gone back the next evening had we not been leaving Montreal. The atmosphere is very pleasant, old world upscale French bistro mixed with some modern dining scenes, the menu so varied with different choices yet plenty of changes we could make to please everyone's tastes. I loved the fois gras brulee! And my veal was tenderer than promised... we loved and enjoyed the restaurant. Thank you Christoph for making this a memorable dinner experience for our party.

“Excellent food, great, personal service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Altogether we had breakfast, lunch and dinner on separate occasions. For lunch and dinner we chose the set menu, which did not disappoint - fine, French-style cooking with a very good selection of wines. Service was very attentive - they always knew who ordered what whoever served us. They made us feel very much at home. A drink at the bar while waiting is a good idea too: the bartender is chatty and so are most of the other customers, whether in French or in English. For us a MUST if we managed to come back from Europe some time.

“Convenient and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We sat in the sun room and at a table for six. Everyone had an excellent meal and my choice was the steak tartare; i asked for it not to be spicy, but next time i'll go for more spice. We found the wines to be paired well for our meals and appropriately priced. Service was fantastic and meal relaxing. We arrived at 5:30 and just made our 8:00 PM show at Cirque de Soleil.
