We went on a night where there wasn't a lot of people in the restaurant so I was surprised on how slow the service was here. The person I was dining with also agreed that the service was very slow. Getting around to the food... I had the salmon which was ok, nothing really good or bad about it just... More

Causy, very clean place. The filet mignon and blue cheese is to die for. Cocktail are very good too. Creme Brule a bit overcooked but good.

Great location on Grande Allee. Wandered into this warm and friendly restaurant on a blustery night. The decor was pleasant with several gas fireplaces to keep the chill off. Ordered the calamari, a salad and a pizza. Food arrived hot and made to order. The pizza could have had more care in it's presentation and spacing of the peppers. Please... More

This restaurant is a little removed from main tourist areas but well worth a visit. Both my filet & my wife's salmon were perfect.

We went there for a breakfast sitting outside the terrace. They have a great location on Grande Allee blvd, with a nice terrace to sit under the sun. This is where the fun ends... The service was simply terrible taking forever to bring juices, water, taking order and serving food. Almost an hour before getting food when the restaurant was... More

We enjoyed a sunny lazy late breakfast of Croissants with jam and fresh fruits and pancakes w Creme Anglaise. Would highly recommend the experience.

Bad food happens! But what does not normally happen is somebody asking for a very well done steak, and not only that is apparently interpreted by the cook as “one-side-charred” steak, but also whoever prepares the plate puts the burnt side of the steak down on the plate, in what looks like an attempt that the customer does not notice...

I went there with my boyfriend on a hot Saturday night. We were on the terrace and it was very nice, loved the lanterns we had on our tables when it got darker outside. We had the camembert as a first course and it was simply delicious. I had the salmon and my boyfriend had the baby back ribs and... More

Service was slow, although restaurant was not crowded. Calamari was average, marinara sauce was below average-as if it came from a jar. Wine was $8.50 per glass, probably held only 4-5 ounces per wine glass. Pizza was below average. On a positive note, poele crevettes pam (shrimp with grapefruit glaze and veggies/rice) was delicious. Overall, disappointed.

Stopped in here yesterday because they had French Onion Soup on the menu. It was not at all busy and the hostess was delightful. The soup was absolutely wonderful! I wanted the experience of having the soup in Quebec.. I am from Chicago.. and I wasn't disappoinrted. Great people watching! I was not in any hurry so I didn't mind... More
