Always crowded, but wait staff are quick. The soup was perfect and the restaurant is nicely appointed. Large windows open up so you are almost dining outside. A few tables are outside on a small patio.

Stopped in for a early dinner. Service was 'stand off-ish' as I have found at most Quebec restaurants but adequate. The menu was somewhat limited but the food was good. There are not a lot of things for a picky child, but the kitchen accommodated us with buttered pasta and Parmesan cheese. I loved the beet salad best. Raw, thinly... More

After spending over an hour for our bread and appetizer, it became apparent to us that the service in this restaurant is absolutely deplorable. Not only overpriced, but the dishes are small. If you want to go, bring a book and expect to wait. No apologies were provided that the service was slow, except that the restaurant only to be... More

Wife went there every morning for a week and the service and quality was outstanding. The chairs in front were an added bonus as I waited for her

it lacked, on my meal. My companion had a superior experience. I had filet mignon and the waiter mixed up my meal with another diners who wanted a medium well done steak instead of medium rare, I ordered. Either way, meat was tough and flavorless. They acknowledge their mistake and gave us dessert for free. It was heavenly good.

The food was amazing. I started with the braised buffalo cheeks. Oh my goodness, the flavor was out of this world. For my entree, I chose the kangaroo loin topped with smoked halibut. The loin was juicy and tender. The fish was moist and not over powering with smoke. The fingerling potatoes were slightly crispy on the outside and soft... More

The crab risotto had not enough crab and slightly undercooked rice. The flavor was pretty good though. Cocktails could be stronger.

They serve dishes here that are different from the States. For example, they have bison and elk (wapiti). When we arrived, the restaurant was packed and the service was slow, much to the chagrin of our server. But e kept us going with a plate of charcuterie and a bottle of wine. When the mains arrived, it was almost worth... More

I ordered the lamb with Turkish spices, sauce vierge with artichoke hearts, tomatoes and kalamata olives, roasted pepper polenta, yogurt kofte spice ($33), which is very flavorful and cooked to perfection. The staff was able to recommend wines to go with each of our orders and they we all agreed they were spot on for pairing. For dessert, I ordered... More

we came into the city after a wet camping weekend. the waiters are fabulous at dealing with people in a friendly way and serving patrons. one could go just for the service and not eat a thing. but do eat. the food arrives lovingly presented and is delicious. the kids were treated well - sometimes the possibility of the language...
