“Incredible meal with a unique twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

My wife and I had an amazing meal here - every plate we ordered was delicious and would rival any restaurant we've been to in NYC. We stopped by the day before we planned to eat there and were told the earliest reservation was at 10pm, so we left our name & phone number just in case something opened up. We got a phone call the next day saying to come on over early, and we were able to get in. The same waiter who took our reservation helped us and was incredibly friendly and was great the entire night.
The veal jowl was like a short rib on steroids - it was awesome. And the deer tartar was also delicious. This place is a great spot for dinner where you can expect nouveau cuisine versus some of the old style french restaurants in Quebec.
Keep in mind, this is not a cheap dinner spot - dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine was around $230 before any tip, but you get what you pay for and it was well worth it.

“A Truly Fabulous Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went there for Valentines and the first thing we noticed was the atmosphere as the restaurant is gorgeous and they don't sacrifice customer comfort to try to squeeze in another table. The food is the true star and we experienced flavour combinations that defy appropriate description. The challenge for the service is that when the food and atmosphere are so amazing it elevates your expectations so while we had no definite problems responsiveness wasn't to the same level. As has been mentioned you pay for quality so this may not be your nightly choice but every trip to Quebec should include a special dinner here.

“Great food, service lacking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We have eaten here twice, once on Monday night when it was slow, another on a busy Saturday night. On both occasions the food was excellent. On the busy Saturday night however the service was pretty bad. The waiter forgot our drinks twice, presented us with a bill that was not for our table, and when he came back with the corrected bill he charged us for two extra drinks. Don't let our service experience deter you from going ;just give feedback if you experience the same service issues we did

“Great fun, food & ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I eat her and we were impressed from the minute we walked through the door. Our waiter took our coats, let us taste wine he thought we would like and recommended great foods. Would go back next time forsure!

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Found this restaurant using Trip Advisor and the reviews were excellent. AND they are mostly right on! A really different restaurant with an interesting "tapas" like concept of dining. There are 13 choices available and you need to pick at least 2 to make a good meal and after get one of the super desserts or the excellent cheese plate. It is not cheap but it is a marvellous dining experience and one that we have not experienced with this kind of food before. The combinations of textures and floors are simply "superbe" and most inventive. Do not expect a "regular" restaurant type of offering or you may be disappointed - as a few of the reviews indicate. But if you are looking for something other worldly then you must try this delightful restaurant.
