This was not our first time here and we like the food, however the most recent experience was very disappointing.
Arrived early on a Sunday evening without a reservation and asked if there was space for our group of 5. We were told that as long as we could be done in about an hour as there was a reservation at 7 it would be OK. To be done within that time is never a problem for us. On arrival the restaurant was around half filled but it still took 15 minutes before our orders were taken and a group arriving after us was served first. The one starter we had thought of sharing was unavailable so we had main dishes only. Our dishes were fine and most of us had finished eating well before 7 when they started clearing the dishes away, even though one person was still finishing. By 6.50 we had already paid the bill (18.47 on my interac statement, with the tip that I now regret adding being recorded here too). We were just finishing our wine when we had the first of three less than subtle hints that it was time for us to leave. No booked guests had arrived and no one was waiting to be seated and there were even a few empty tables. When we raised this with the waitress who was the last to indicate it was time for us to leave, her response was simply that she needed to clear the table, and when we indicated that we had waited a considerable time to be served, given that they knew they wanted us out before 7, the response was that they were busy. If you cannot cope when only around 3/4 of your tables are occupied, that is not promising. We were out the door by 6.55 with there being still no guests awaiting seating, Rudeness does not even go half way to describing this. The food is OK but not so great or unique that with plenty of other choices in the West Island I have no desire to pay for this sort of treatment.
