Better before went for New Years dinner they upped the prices and wasnt as good.
Had stuffed quail it was cold inside !!
Charged almost as much as 2 750 bottle of wine for a litre of their house wine.
Wont be going back and we were frequent diners.

We were pleasantly surprised that our server knew his wines well and was not shy about recommendations. For starters, two of us took the beet salad that came with greens, blue cheese and pecans, a perfect combination; one took the tuna tartar that was apparently good but lacked seasoning; another one took the rillette de saumon which was ok served with crostini. As the main dish, three took the magret de canard and I took the rack of lamb. All noted that the meat was tender but could have been enhanced by seasoning or an accompanying sauce. Desserts were a hit. The crème brûlée is amongst the best I've had. The others were pleased with their choices. The meal was served over a three hour period with lots of waiting time. Overall, food is good, decor is dated and tables are quite close to each other but waiters are knowledgeable. Tip: if you consider sitting outside, note that the terrace is by a busy street.

We went with family to dine at the Saint-O on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. I was surprised that the place was not busy as it seems to be all the time. The service is unhurried; I would call it relaxed, although the service at times was a bit awkward and distant. To me, it is like going to a dear aunt for supper and trying to impress. This is what I call “super-sympa”.

The selection of plates is varied as is the wine list, served very elegantly and generous portions. They provide a great effort and personalize the service and plates to our desire. The flavors are sublime and well balanced. Ordering quail, you get the whole quail, ordering the char, you get large piece, ordering the elk rib, you get a real piece of rib. Just to say that the food is honest. I have been at other establishment where the quail was served rolled… which amounts more to a sausage. The food is not over processes, over prepared; it will have some bones in it. Just like dinning at a dear aunt’s.

We love the place and will return.

We went to the Saint-O for business lunch with two clients. We had a quick lunch but ended up staying a few hours. A friendly relaxed location away from the trendy hub-hub. The food is very good, the portions filling and the staff professional.
