    This restaurant has a cool vibe. There are many different types of food, but something as simple as steak and fries was so delicious. We had mushroom and egg appetizer, steaks and creme brulee. All delicious. Sit by the window to enjoy the outdoor scene.

    This place was supposed to be the budget version of Toqué and so it is to the point where the food is bland, the wine is cheap and overall not a very exciting experience.

    Had a lovely meal at Brasserie T. We weren't too hungry and just ordered mains and dessert. My spouse had the steak frites and I ordered the saucisse de Montreal with quinoa. My spouse liked his steak. The composed butter was a nice touch as was the sauce for the steak. But my sausage & quinoa were winners. For dessert, we shared the special apple tart with squash, curry ice cream & cilantro sauce. Very interesting & very good.

    Petit repas rapide avant le concert, devant une planche de charcuterie fantastique, fraiche et TRÈS gouteuse! Malgré sa simplicité, rien n'était banal, la qualité du produit transpire encore une fois. Magnifique verre de Barbera d'Asti d'importation privée pour accompagner cette charmante soirée en bonne compagnie.

    We chose this restaurant based on reviews as well as proximity to our hotel located at 900 Bonaventure. We were able to walk to the restaurant in approx. 15 minutes. It's basically all glass and very small, rectangular in shape and condensed with dining guests. We asked ourselves..could they do this type of structure/concept in our town? Doubt it (because of lack of vision) The food and service was wonderful-we had a "main" waiter that took our order, wine selection, etc. however as some of our appetizers and our main foods came up, many servers helped out. All asked how we were doing/choice of food and wine. It was a very enjoyable first experience and the waiter staff was especially engaging and made it that much more a lovely evening.

    Si vous pensez retrouver un peu de la qualité du Toqué, vous vous trompez. Cet endroit bien situé dans le quartier des spectacles n'a de bien que son site. Cuisine de type bistrot qui laisse à désirer . Les bourgaux à l'ail, vous arrivent au gratin .Vous voulez un tartare relevé, il le sera avec le vinaigre des câpres . On y retourne non.

    It's a long narrow box of a restaurant that does look like a shipping container gone upscale next to a museum. Fun unless you're claustrophobic. Service was excellent -- with special attention to dietary restrictions. We chose a nightly special for two that was a feast of grilled beef with French fries, salad and ears of roasted corn. Excellent mojitos and a nice list of wine by the glass.

    The menu was 'okay' but not more than that. I had two out of town guests and wanted to bring them to a lunch spot in Le Quartier des Spectacles, which was close to our offices. This one had been suggested to me based on its proximity. I would say that the food was fine, but would have expected a more diverse menu, with a wider range of salad and sandwich options. The service was great though. Very friendly and efficient wait staff.

    Our party of 6 enjoyed the food. The oysters were excellent. Appetizers ranging from the escargots to gaspacho soup and salad were all very good. . The mushroom with egg was particularly good. For main meals the steak and the salmon tartare were a hit but the shrimp quedilla was not well received. The Paris Brest for dessert was fantastic. The place is noisy but the service was friendly

    Location of this restaurant is very unusual... it's installed in the middle of a sidewalk in the entertainment district in Montreal. Food is good, and the wine list is complete. Not too expensive for what you get and, based on our experience, we will go back there without hesitation.

  • Too much hype
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/25/2014
    I had heard good things about this restaurant but the experience didn't live up to my expectations. The service and location are very good, but the food was not up to the standard we've come to appreciate in Montreal. Nothing we ate was terrible, but everything lacked balance in some way. The ribs were far too sweet, the tuna tartare had too much mustard seed in it and the sausage didn't have enough flavour.

    We stopped for dinner after a concert. Food was inventive and delicious. Wine prices were not steep. Good, friendly service. Recommend the fois gras. The salmon tarter is very good as well. Maybe could use a little less on the capers. Dessert and cheese were fine, but the creme brûlée could have used more texture. All in all, a very good meal in a hot scene. Bonus was a concert going on outdoors as we ate. This is truly a front row seat for the Montreal Jazz Festival.

    The food was delicious however service was indifferent and slow (surprising given the limited menu). And the noise level was deafening; it was impossible to have a conversation with the person seated across from me. In fact, the noise was so painful that two women at a table near us walked out. But there was no shortage of walk ins to take their place. As good as the food was, I would not return. Oh, and the restaurant told me that they were no longer participating in OpenTable.

    I had wanted to try the restaurant for a while, but is hard to get a reservation before a concert. Finally I was successful. We enjoyed the meal overall. The service was fine, but not notable. My friend's burger and fries were not warm, so he was dissapppointed. My special po boy shrimp sandwich was excellent. Starters and desserts were very good. If the burger had been warm, he might have enjoyed the meal more, especially considering the price.

    I booked a table for lunch the night before and I was surprised that I could get a reservation. The food was very good and we enjoyed how unique the restaurant was. It was very busy and they only had two main servers, with two other people helping out. So that is why I rated the service good. If it wasn't as busy I would assume that the servers would have been more attentive.
