The food was different and very good. The servers were attentive. Great place before a concert at Place des Arts.

It was a balmy summer evening
It was a balmy summer evening with just enough soft breezes to allow us to enjoy sitting on the terrace. We were going to a concert at the Jazz Festival, so didn't have too much time to linger. The waiter understood and gave us outstanding service. The food was divine. My companion chose the 72-hr cooked beef and never have we tasted beef this good. I had scallops, also delicious. Definitely recommend this restaurant whether one is going to Place des Arts or not.

Good food, small portions
Every food item we got on the prix fixe menu was awesome. The only small problem was portion sizes that left us a bit hungry after the meal. Service was OK but we thought our server had forgotten us for a good part of the meal.

Plats à savourer
Excellente carte de plats agréablement recherchés. Le concept: 2 services dont les assiettes sont équivalentes contrairement à l'approche "entrée-plat principal". On peut ajouter un dessert ou un fromage.
Chacun des 4 plats goûtés avait une touche distinctive et des saveurs marqués. Savoir-faire de qualité. Le choix de vins au verre limité mais intéressant, entre autre un pinot de l'Oregon très bien typé. Service compétent et sympathique.
Toutefois je doute que le resto plaise aux "grands appétits", les portions étant plutôt raisonnables, mais suffisantes dans notre cas. À noter la qualité du pain ( boulangerie Amora ?).
Le décor du resto est fort froid et les sons se répercutent sur les murs nus rendant l'atmosphère bruyante dû à l'écho.

Art + Food = Yum!
This place is a real find. We were in Montreal unexpectedly and trying to get reservations. It turned out that it was Restaurant Week and all the places we were interested in trying were booked. This was the only place we could get reservations, and so we jumped at it.
How lucky we were! You'd think that a restaurant in an art museum wouldn't be much to speak of, but there you are quite wrong. The food was not just incredibly tasty, it was imaginative and beautiful. Salads with meringue and sorbet, main dishes topped with quail eggs, and dessert with salted buttermilk ice cream. I could go on and on but there is just not enough room in this review!
In short: this place is a find. It's worth your time and money. Eat in an art museum!
