    The food is usually really good, but this time it was so-so. There where not enough waiter for the number of people in the restaurant, to bad, we had a lot of wait time...upon arrival they did not have our reservation...need to improve the food quality, otherwise I will no longer return (it always has been good in the past). They have a great wine list, but wines are too much expensive.

    We went on New Year's Eve so it was a set menu. Everything was very good. The only thing I can comment on negatively is that we were asked if we'd like the fois gras on our rabbit without being told that there was a surcharge.

    We had an early dinner on a Sunday night after arriving in Quebec. It was close to our hotel which was a plus. Beer and wine were great and dinner as well. The duck confit tart was a little bland, but the seared salmom was delicious. Because it was early Sunday, no noise at all. In fact we were the only customer until dessert. We even stopped by for a cocktail on our return trip from sightseeing the next afternoon.

    I'd never been to Versa before so I was looking forward to a new experience. We were there on a Monday, so it was not very crowded; all of the outside tables were taken, but they gave us wonderful seating inside. The waitstaff were attentive, efficient, and very friendly. With on notable exception, the food was delicious: well seasoned, well cooked, and properly proportioned. The Pasta dishes, however were a bit of a disappointmet: sticky, undersauced, with flavourless meatballs. Despite this one little blip we enjoyed ourselves immensely!!

    although the food was good the cheese, at 19.00 dollars was far from being as good as expected. Cheese was cold and the tastless Brie should be used for something else. the Cheddar was ordinary and the fact that it was refrigerated did not help.

    It was a nice place and the food was good but thee were a few little things they could improve on. 1. It was too dark. I had to hold the menu up to the window to read it and the guy at the table next to us used the light on his phone. The waiter watched us both and did nothing. 2. Please, please do not take our plates until everyone at the table is finished. This is food service 101 worldwide people yet time and time again in restaurants world-wide they do it.

    Attended on New Years Eve. Loved the 1$ oysters all night (this was a big selling point for us). Wine/drinks were well priced also. Service very friendly but lacking in attention to some key details (i.e. we were given a fabulous booth table but it took our server nearly 2 hrs to seat us at our table from the bar. Service while waiting at the bar was very good) Food was so-so. Took too long for main courses to arrive and portions very small and mediocre quality. Set menu of 50$ per person for NYE was not mentioned when reservation was made, though they did allow us one exchange which was kind. Service was overall very curteous and friendly :) Ambiance was lively yet we had enough space to be romantic. Overall great vibe for the evenin

    We went early and the place was very quiet - I got the impression that when busier it could be quite a loud space though. Food was well-executed, just different enough to make an impression without being over-the-top trendy (the 'cric-crac-cru' tartare with Rice Krispies was surprisingly excellent!), server friendly but efficient and willing to work with our limited French when understood but switching seamlessly to English if needed to clarify.

    C'était bon, et les promotions sont super (jeudi de filles, jours MMM à 20$) Service empressé et courtois mais expéditif sur la fin. Équipe polie et prête à répondre à nos questions. Comparativement aux jeudis, c'était très calme, il n'y avait presque personne quoi qu'il était très tôt. C'est beaucoup plus agréable car beaucoup moins bruyant. La carte est intéressante mais je trouve qu'elle ne se renouvelle pas beaucoup. Les desserts sont hors de prix, bien que délicieux. C'est près de mon travail, et très pratique. Je n'ai pas de voiture alors ce n'est pas un problème, mais ceux qui en ont une risquent d'avoir beaucoup de difficulté à stationner. Je reviendrai, aussi pour un cocktail sur la terrasse, sûrement.
