Excellent food with a nicely varied menu (expecially the mussels); pleasing ambiance (lively and up-beat); and attentive/ knowledgable wait staff (brought the food at the pace we requested and offered very suitable wine pairings.) Reasonable prices.

We dined here with a pretty large group and the staff handled our service wonderfully. The food was tasty and the wine was served as it should have been. I can't wait to return to Montreal to eat here again I'd suggest reservations, if possible....More
