We really enjoyed our food and the ambiance. Great service. Delicious pasta, of course, but we loved the fresh fish too, and their desserts. House wine was excellent.

Good restaurant with great ambiance. It's sexy, it's romantic and the settings is great! They offer gluten free options that I found quite tasty. For St-Jean it's a great option if you want to get a romantic diner and you have allergies. They are going to make sure to accommodate you.

Wonderful restaurant! The food was elegant but not overdone. Wait staff was very helpful, especially to English only guests. Best meal of our trip!!

The food here is really good. Prices are fair. The only probleme that I have with this place is the seating... it's not comfy and everything is open... so you really don't have a "private" feeling. But I suffest you at least try it!

We enjoyed our meal at this small Italian restaurant. It was a slow, mid-week night, so the place was very quiet, but looked like it might be loud if crowded (hard surfaces, etc).

My friends and I eat here regularly...It is fine, wholesome, tasty fare for a most reasonable price...Consistently good....They always have a "fish du jour", which we often have and which is never a letdown. Their "bavette" is also very tender and tasty and so is their pasta. Soup or salad and a choice of two desserts are included...

I visited this restaurant twice and it was excellent both times. The appetizer (soup or salad) is always included with any main course. A lot of choices for pasta and pizza, but if you don't want to eat these 2 menus, they don't have a lot of other choices. But the food is really good and the atmosphere is great!... More

The menu included different options from seafood to vegetarian/vegan pasta. My sister is vegan and she found a... More

I went there for lunch. The place was almost full. There was a lot of thing on the menu that look delicious. I would say that the originality and the quality of the food is above average. The plate i took was very good and a good portion. The service was quite slow, but i must admit that with the... More
