    Portion are small and prices are high... way too high. Service was really poor: we had to remind the waitress to bring us our plates or drinks... I'm not returning. Too many great places around to return there.

    I found my experience at Fontana's very dull. The homemade ravioli was super bland and lacked creativity. The gelato and martini were good, but the service was so slow. I wouldn't come back for the food. Maybe just for the gelato.

    Nourriture bonne, mais sans plus, manque d'originalité dans la présentation. Très sobre et épuré A+. Le meilleur, Le GElato wow. Si j'ai à revenir c'est pour cela.

    Bonjour Je vous ai également écrit une critique sur Tripadvisor!!! Belle découverte, bonne bouffe et bon service!!! Tartare de thon délicieux et desserts divins et originaux!!! Seuls hics: Décollez un peu vos tables et habillez davantage vos serveuses pour un peu plus de professionnalisme... On se croirait dans un bar et non dans un resto... Vos serveuses textent en passant devant les clients!!! Nous étions 5 et avons seulement ses deux seuls commentaires négatifs!!! À découvrir!!!

    Je croyais à tort que ce resto ne servait que des repas légers, des desserts et des crèmes glacées. J'ai plutôt découvert un resto très sympatique avec une superbe vue dans le quartier Dix30 à partir de la grande terrasse située au deuxième étage.. La carte des vins pourrait être généreuse mais en général la soirée fut des plus agréables.

    The only thing that I didn't like at all was the chairs. I think they are not really representative of the restaurant. They are not comfortable and doesn't fit with the rest of the classy restaurant.

    The food was good and the ambiance is nice. Our waiter was nice but there is a huge lack of service. Our waiter kept forgetting and mixing our order. One person on our table got his entree (a soup) after we finished ours. And this continued for our main meal, waiting more than 5 mns to get the last plate of our table wich ended with 3 cold plates out of 4. It seems that there is not enough training from the managing concerning the bases of services.

    Facture extrêmement élevée pour 2 personnes (150$) et mon conjoint a mangé un Panini et moi, un Mac N' Cheese, ce qui n'est pas de la haute gastronomie. Nous avons mieux mangé et pour moins cher à l'Auroch de l'autre côté de la rue et il s'agissait de repas plus haut de gamme. J'ai pris un cidre de glace au dessert, sans mentionner celui que je voulais (je n'avais pas vu qu'il y en avait deux), alors le serveur m'a demandé lequel je voulais, j'ai pris celui que je ne connaissais pas, mais il ne m'a pas mentionné qu'il était 18$, et 6$ plus cher que l'autre. Le serveur n'était pas particulièrement sympathique, très peu souriant. Au paiement, le serveur m'a fait remarqué que je ne lui avais pas donné assez de pourboires !
