Il serait intéressant d'avoir plus de variétés en ce qui à trait au menu de l'Afternoon tea. De plus, bien que les pains sont toastés, en bouche, ils semblent plutôt secs, comme s'ils avaient été laissés sur le comptoir trop longtemps. Bien que je crois que la préparation des bouchées se fait à l'avance par souci de rapidité en cuisine et pour le service, cette méthode fait en sorte qu'il manque de fraîcheur dans les plats. pour la qualité du restaurant, on s'attend à plus de fraîcheur et variétés. Finalement, les chaises n'étaient pas confortables mais j'ai cru comprendre que vous alliez rénover bientôt!
Malgré tout, nous avons passé un bon moment, merci de l'accueil!

I came for high tea, the mini sandwiches were horrible. The bread was extremely stale. Very disappointed considering the price. I will not be returning.

J'aimerais que votre questionnaire soit entièrement EN FRANÇAIS et non pas dans deux langues. Vos traducteurs sont-ils en grève ? Je n'ai répondu qu'aux questions dans MA langue.

they ran out of the daily special by 12:30. That was disappointing as the rest of the menu is very limited. The waiter was distracted so we didn't get our soup for 15 mins after ordering and then the manager came back to double check the order for our mains. All in all a mixed up service experience. The lunch took longer than expected because of this so I won't go back for a business lunch.

triste de voir ce bel endroit en decripitude. Les chaises en pleine décomposition nous fait nous demander ou on est. certainement pas au centre ville a l interieur de la célèbre bijouterie. Ne cherchez pas les thés Mariage, il n'y en a pas. Ils ont été remplacé par les thes Kushmi, bons thés certe mais loin derrière Mariage. Bouchées faites y a plusieurs heures a base de pain sec. Les scones sont la plus grande déception. Sec et sans goût. Not a proper tea time there mais une pâle imitation. On s attendais a plus.

This is such a pretty place to have brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner - think "Breakfast at Tiffany's." The service was impeccable and the food exactly right. We both had the appetizer of the day: a shrimp and cucumber salad with microgreens and a hint of dill. My friend had a blanquette de poulet, which she said was “creamy, rich and to die for.” I had the salmon tartar, served with zucchini “tagliatelle” and microgreens – lovely! They have a nice little by-the-glass wine list (which is optimal for lunch); we enjoyed the Sancerre and Riesling. Unusually, they had us taste the wine before our glasses were filled. A nice touch! I definitely recommend the Birks Café and will certainly be back!

Service peu chaleureux, rapport qualité/prix médiocre: potage sans goût, trop liquide. Portion de saumon pas très généreuse.



Nous préférons de loin le Beaver Hall pour le même prix , a l'heure du midi.

I was expecting more quality food wise. The club sandwich was dry and my salad was overly salty. The dessert and coffee were very good though as well as the service. However, there were few peopl having lunch. I would not return myself.

I've been there several times. This time, I went for Sunday Afternoon Tea, and it was great as usual except for one thing. Probably because we were 7 people a bigger group for afternoon tea, they stuck the sandwiches on top of each other instead of placing them individually, so the bottom sandwich were kinda ruined. My friend ate it without saying anything, but for the price she was paying and ambiance we had, I'm sure she would have expected her sandwich to be nicely placed. Otherwise, it was enjoyable afternoon.
