Description: Contemporary flavours on old St. Paul Street-it's refined, French-inspired and market-fresh. The intimate ambiance, accented by a working fireplace and impressive glass wine cellar, is a fixture in old Montreal. Ingredients are always locally sourced and the menu consistently boasts the freshest produce. The wine list is extensive and palatably priced. Enjoy the moment. We'll take care of the rest.

This restaurant, siutated in Old MOntreal, is a romantic, relaxed place for good food. It is priced in relation to high quality. Their mixed drinks are very good.

Just came back from dinner. Not impressed, Not cheap.
The $27 three service special was a ripoff. I started off with a butternut squash
soup that was generic and lukewarm. Followed by a risotto that was undercooked and
not creamy. If I held the dish upside down like Chef Ramsay, it wouldn't have moved.
To top it off, I paid $14 extra for a piece of Foie Gras on my risotto. No joke, it was the size of a
macaroon, one bite, sliced thin so that all it tasted like was the oil it was fried in. No creamyness. I asked the waiter if this was how the foie gras should be and he said yes. I left it at that. A good waiter would`ve asked If there was a problem. At least it`s consistent. Bad food, Bad service. The desert was small, but at least it was tasty. Everyone at the table liked their desert. Just not enough to warrant the $70 that was spent during their cheap eats festival.
Lets recap: $27 for three courses, $14 foie gras addition to main course and one glass of wine for $11. Tax and tip at 15% set me back $70. Then we went down the street to Mcdonalds because some of us were still hungry. That says it all.

The hotel itself along with its rooms is all very beautiful and fancy looking. So different from the usual type of hotel travelers are used to. BUT, food is very very average! We ordered breakfast, 2 orders of an egg plate with all the trimmings. We only got 1 toast each, which were both burnt. Eggs tasted liked butter, intensively! Presentation looked like something out of a Belle Province restaurant! (For this not familiar with belle province Restaurants, they're like fast food places diner type, trucker style) For $30 for both plates, thought it was a massive ripe off. Secondly, their in-room booklet states that all local calls are free... Not true? They charge you 1.50$ each and claims its not their fault, it's the phone distributer... What a crock of...! To get ice you need to call the front desk and takes forever to get it (we never got it period actually!) no coffee maker in the room... Sort of lame for a 5 star hotel! I

Overall, it's a very average hotel disguised behind a fancy decor...

This January marks the 6th edition of Happening Gourmand, the annual month-long festival organized by Experience Old Montreal. Throughout the month, the group's eight restaurants offer three-course menus at a reduced price. Today we were invited to a lunch tasting for the media at Restaurant Verses, to sample dishes from participating restaurants' menus.

We had the Salmon Rillette Tartine and the Braised Beef Parmentier, both of which were solid considering what you're paying.
