We wanted to try this place for a while since it is related to Toasts. We were a party of 4 and had dinner on the patio during Canada Day weekend.
2 out of 3 appetizers were good (salmon tartar and pulled pork poutine). My wife's starter was popcorn shrimp and though it could have been pleasant enough, it was much too salty.
3 out of 4 mains were good (Lobster mac'n'cheese, Angel hair pasta with duck confit and Chicken breast cooked "sous vide").
I personally had the boudin noir (blood sausage) as a main. Though its consistence was enjoyable, it was overly salty, beyond anything that could be considered edible!
Even though I had mentioned to our waiter the fact that my wife's starter was too salty and also that my main was equally too salty, nothing was done to compensate us. I asked our waiter to taste the boudin noir in the kitchen if he got the chance.
At the time of paying for the meal, I asked him for some news about the dish, he replied that the chef decided to throw away the whole batch of boudin after tasting it!!! I think I did them a favor letting them know about the horrible taste of their own cuisine, and I also think that simply waiving the 24$ dish from our 200$ bill before tip would have been appropriate (as you are not supposed to charge a customer for something you agree to throw at the garbage) and would have cost them less than what they will loose if only one potential customer opt not to try the restaurant because of this review.
Overall, this place has potential but it just lacks common sense!
Better go at Boulay bistro or L'Echaudé. Also, Patentes et Machins was quite recommendable.
