    This restaurant made me feel old! My husband and I are in our mid-thirties and we did bring up the average on the evening we were there. Many groups of 20 somethings. This restaurant is also very loud. The food was good although my blue marlin was overcooked and dry. We tried the oysters, butternut squash soup, scallops ceviche, foie gras, beef cheeks, all were prepared nicely. Our server was friendly and attentive at first but the more the evening went on, the less he paid attention to us. For the last 45 minutes he was not seen and it then took forever to get our bill. There are so many good restaurants in Montreal that this one does not deserve a 2nd chance.

    Service was nice, friendly and competent. The food was good but really nothing special compared to many other Montreal restaurants. I understand it's a BYOW so the food prices are higher, but here it was definitely too pricey for the quality. Portions were also quite small. The noise level made for very difficult conversations.

    We had a great time! The staff was super accomodating and kind. When our table wasn't ready for 20 min, they recommended we head next door for a glass of wine on the house and friendly staff at the Montreal Sporting Club. We loved our dinner and my friends are still raving about it. Thanks!

    Definitely erased any stigma associated with the bring-your-own-wine status. Remarkable menu that changes daily and fantastic chef specialties. Tried the 4-course menu (I believe it was $49) and loved everything! Home-made charcuteries to start, creamy potage, the generous portion of organic local beef and amazing home-made bread pudding. Will definitely become a regular.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    French Connection do a five course tasting menu with terroir ingredients at $50 a person. It's modern Quebec cuisine with a playful flavour -- foie gras on chocolate bread pudding was the only thing that went over the top. Mostly this is a case of excellent ingredients blended well to make interesting and unusual dishes. They also handle allergies well -- and the substitute dish they brought me was better than what my husband got. Everything was delicious, the service was excellent and you take your own wine. If you like imaginative food, and if you like eating small amounts of lots of lovely things, you can't really beat this.

    Menu is changing every week, products are fresh and you can tell. There's quite a choice that can match lots of tastes and appetites (different meats and fishes). Service was great and pretty fast, waiter took time to explain the menu, very available. Price is reasonable considering the quality and quantity ($50 for 5 courses).

    Food is always great, very good quality for price ratio! Service is very friendly and efficient. This restaurant is bring your own wine, but that doesn’t keep them for providing wine service, champagne glasses for sparkling wine and decanters if necessary. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    Delicious food, charming and laid back waiter. The noise level was particularly high, even though the restaurant was nearly empty. Amazing use of locally sourced ingredients, perfect portions and although they make you wait between courses (our whole dinner took 4 hours) it gives you time to digest and properly enjoy every dish served.
