I ate lunch at L'Académie last week with work colleagues. We opted for the table d'hôte menu which offered several well-priced choices (fish, pasta, meat) and was accompagnied by soup or salad. The food was plentiful, and well presented. Service was quick and courteous. Skip the espresso drinks (not very good).

we had a large group of 14 and loved the easy going staff, the food and the ability to enjoy dinner en masse....for very good prices!

our party took some time to assemble and the staff was great with the wait...the food was yummy (especially the fries and mussels) and reasonable.

the atmosphere was great and you could see your food but still hide in the shadows if needed...bringing your own wine etc was a saving and we loved the individual bills!!! a must try

Stumbled upon this place with my wife as we were trying to go to Tasso's (closed on Sunday's). Amazing gem of a place. Three floors with a great outdoor patio and open main floor concept. Food get's a 3-4 but ambience get's a 5. Great bonus is there's NO corkage fee and you can bring your own wine. If you forget there's a SAQ right across the street.

First, don't put off your visit too long. This mall location has been unsuccessful for many previous food ventures. And I'm not sure L'Academie is a good fit. It's more expensive, and much finer food, than I expect in a plaza like this.

The food is too good for the address.

The decor is comfortable and a little elegant. But it's a large room, rather loud with conversation.

Service is excellent. BYOB.

The menu has definite seafood leanings, with a section devoted to mussels. Our large group uniformly raved. The coquilles St. Jacques appetizer has more shrimp than scallop, in a rich sauce that a picky diner might suggest was slightly thin. In fact, the menu tends strongly toward quite rich. One end of our table enjoyed steak. Escargot were well received. I enjoyed the gnocchi, also in a rich, cream sauce. (That's all my calories for the week.)

We brought our own alcohol. Our bill was around $45 per person after tax and before tip. Many had appetizers and/or desserts.

Recommended for a dressier-than-jeans night out.
