Well located and the food was very good. I found the prices to be a bit high. I would recommend this place for steak. Salmon tartar was good. Plank salmon a bit overcooked but tasty.

This is the second time we visit this restaurant and are not enamored. Two of us ordered fish which was somewhat salty. One came with a risotto which was pasty. One of us ordered the burger which she couldn't finish. Only the sushi was good....More

I had dinner here with friends last night, it was a nice experience. The ambience is pleasant, the service was attentive but not overbearing. We all had prime rib, rare. The beef was aged just right and had a light buttery flavour, it was excellent....More

A nice place, cosy, and quiet. The food is good, but not the best steak I had ... The service is efficient and smily but could be a little bit faster. And, to my opinion, it is a bit too expensive for what you get.

I've been here each time I've visited Montreal and it has been fantastic every time. The wait staff is on par with other places I've been in Montreal- not quite the attention I'm used to in the states, but serviceable and friendly. The food is...More

Went to this restaurant on the advice of a friend. Was not disappointed. They are basically a steak- seafood restaurant but with sushi choices as well. We shared a sushi appetizer and it was tasty and plentiful. My husband had the slow cooked 12 ounce...More

I had dinner here with a friend. The service was average at best and my meal (lamb shank) was bland. My fiend's filet was not cooked as requested, and had to be sent back.

The most amazing food and attentive staff I've ever experienced. The lamb shank was so tender; ny york steak cooked to perfection as to each person's request; all appetizers and sides superb. Highly recommended. $$$$

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

We are located in the heart of downtown Montreal at the corner of University and Rene Levesque streets. We are steps away from the Queen Elizabeth hotel and a short distance from most downtown hotels. We offer delicious Angus steaks, fresh seafoood, and a terrific sushi bar.
