    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.

    Although this is a restaurant I've been to numerous times (and recommended) my last visit was disappointing. On a cold Tuesday night, the place was nearly empty (we arrived around 7:30 pm): Seated my party of 2 at the last table in the back, near the kitchen/bathroom Waiter 1 not knowledgeable enough about meals/nightly offers Waiter 1 was not attentive at right time Waiter 1 mistakenly poured water into my drink, had to get attention of waiter 2 to call waiter 1, after quick chat he comes back with a new drink (minus alcohol) and puts it on our bill (not cool) Waiter 3 kept coming back to table, felt rushed (why? place is empty!) gave our plates even though we weren't finished Left a tip but won't be back or recommend anymore

    Dined on 4/1/2014
    Here is to my knowledge the first restaurant in Montreal using the concept of the French Brasserie, namely great food from a known chef at an affordable price. I had the best scallop ceviche ever, and the lamb was very good too. But the best was yet to come, the Paris Brest ! There is a good wine list and a good selection of wines by the glass. The service is friendly but not too much and the noise level is acceptable. Great place for a nice dinner right before a show.

    Normally, I really enjoy Brasserie T! This time, it took ages for us to be acknowledged once we were seated (even though we confirmed that we had to get to a show). I always find it annoying when I have to stare down wait staff in order to get acknowledged. Other than that, the food was good, as always, and it remains one of my favourite places to go before a performance at PDA. I had the "saumon à l'aneth" with the fennel salad. It was a little heavy on the oil this time, but it is so yummy!

    I had a tartare de cerf with crispy quinoa and a special vinaigrette out of this world. Delicate but very flavoured taste. Definitely I'll take it again. The escargots and the bavette that my hubby took were also very nicely done. The weak part was service. The waitress was not coming regularly and was chatting instead of checking her tables. Too bad:-(
