We discovered this lovely spot on a very cold day in February. We needed a late lunch in a cozy room and this restaurant delivered both needs. We enjoyed the Paris atmosphere, the servers were prompt and pleasant and the food was very good. I had an omelette and my husband had a delicious home-made soup. No crowds on this bitter day although there was a cold draft whenever anyone entered or exited despite the curtains surrounding the entrance. Heavier door protectors are needed. We will definitely visit again when in Montréal.

We were a group of eight and we went there for a dinner. The service was very bad, waiters are not friendly, no air condition, no music, we loved the food but the atmosphere in general was very bad. Before we pay the bill, the waiter came to us and say that for a table of 8 people an appropriate tips should be at least 15%. I found it a very unacceptable way to guarantee his tips.

On a rainy day in late June, we were as hungry as wolves, so being in the Laurier West neighbourhood, we decided to stop at La Petite Ardoise. We hadn't been there in ages. We arrived at around 1:30 p.m. and most of the noon patrons had finished. Our waitress was delightful and our meals (light noon-day fare) exceeded our expectations. I had the "salade asiatique" with a glass of white wine and my friend had a "poulet panini" with a glass of red wine. For dessert, we shared the "tarte Tatin" an open-faced apple pie. The pie was good, but I have had versions which have tasted more buttery. We also had two "cafés allongés"; very good! All in all, a fantastic lunch on a horrible rainy day in late June. Try to go there when it is sunny. There is a backyard courtyard with tables which would be something to try.

We loved the food and the atmosphere of this wonderful French bistro. The menu was in French only, but our server was very helpful in translating as needed.

We used to go there a couple of times a year but the last 2 times we went, we were very disappointed. The last time we went there, we waited an hour before our plates were brought and the waitress didn't apologize. People that arrived several minutes after us got their food way before us. There was even a waitress that was taking her break and eating before us! Worse, they finally brought our plates, and there was an error in the order, and once again, the waitress didn't apologize. They finally brought the ''missing part'' of my wife's plate once she was almost finished eating.
And worse of all : the food is very average
Bad, very bad experience overall.
