We were a group of 10. Plus at the last minute a family (friends) of 4 joined us. They family arrived before us and left before. It was great that they could sit us together.

However the restaurant made an error on that families bill. To make up for it they gave them a $25 gift card. My friends gave the gift card to me, to use to pay for my Dad's dinner as it was his birthday and the reason we were there. The restaurant would not accept the gift card they just issues.

The food was great and drinks were good. However it was so loud in the restaurant it was hard to have any type of conversation.

Nous avons fais des reservations pour 19h00 et quand on est arrive on nous a place dans le corridor ce qui n'etait vraiment pas intime et quand j'ai demande d'etre deplace on nous a avise qu'il n'y avait plus de place et quand j'ai mentionne que c'etait notre premiere fois la serveuse est retourne pour nous dire qu'il voulait qu'on revienne et alors ils nous ont deplace sur le poudoir. Apres une longue attente pour le repas on nous a finalement offert du pain et la suite commence avec deux policiers qui entre et parlent avec les gens a cote de nous et font des "breathalaser" ce qui etait vraiment estrange et l'ambiance a ce moment est devenue tres desegrable. La serveuse nous a avise que c'etait un projet pilote. Se n'etait vraiment pas le moment ou la place pour faire ce genre de choses. Si on m'avait avise en entrant je ne serais pas reste. Tres mauvaise experience et je n'y retournerai pas.

Un atmosphère décontracté avec repas de haute qualité. La cuisson du filet mignon était parfaite et les frites étaient chaudes et croustillantes. Le gâteau au carotte était généreux et succulent. Notre serveuse était très gentille et attentionnée. Le seul bémol était une musique beaucoup trop forte. C'était une première expérience qui sera définitivement renouvellée!

Cuisine excellente mais facture qui équivaut à 2 semaines d'épicerie pour 1entrée partagée, 2 steaks,et une bouteille de vin. Je ne crois pas qu'on peux y retourner à toute les semaines.

Almost 100% great except my husband ordered a $35 steak and the sauce was very bitter so he requested a little bit of BBQ sauce and was brought a tiny cup of it and charged $3.00 for it! The money isn't the point but we should definitely have been notified that it was $3.00 for such a small amount.

Food was delicious and our servers were exceptional. Our main server even asked if I wanted my son's utensils and silicone plate cleaned. This was the first time I've been offered for such service.

Everyone at our table agreed that they would be back, particularly for the tacos, variety of tartares and carpaccio!

The service was horrible. Our table was not ready after 15 mins of waiting we had a reservation for 12 people. We did not get asked for our order until I had to flag down the waitress myself after almost an hour of waiting already. I asked for my filet mignon med rare it came mes-well. The waitress was no where to be found to let her know and since it had been an hour and 45 mins by the time the food arrived I was starving. Waitress came around 25 mins later ans when I told her about my steak she argued with me that it's how they cook it. It was unacceptable of her to talk to me that way and they offered no apology at all. I will never go back and will discourage anyone of going.

Le service était médiocre, beaucoup d'erreurs concernant les assiettes. Je me suis senti pressé à commander et manger par le personnel de service. Sans mentionner les 4 appels téléphoniques et le courriel pour un rappel de réservation et m'indiquer qu'une réservation de groupe était prévu après mon passage. J'avais l'impression que je dérangeait avant d'y arriver. Mon breuvage était chaud. Prix dispendieux pour l'expérience.. L'habillement des filles me déplaisait, trop provocateur, robe très ajusté , trop courte et décolté .Inapproprié pour la salle a manger. Je suis très déçu de ma sortie a ce restaurent.

Le seul bémol à été de constater qu'en 2017, les jeunes serveuses doivent encore s'habiller de façon trop sexy pour un restaurant. Une jolie robe noire sans décolleté profond et moins serrée serait à la fois moins malhaisant pour les clients et beaucoup plus confortable pour les serveuses. Une suggestion fortement recommandée pour une chaîne de restaurant de votre niveau.

La serveuse était vraiment désagréable à l'égard des enfants. Il était évident qu'elle n'appréciait pas leur présence, et ce, même s'ils étaient très tranquilles. Elle a déposé d'une façon très inapproprié le plateau des condiments pour le repas des enfants. Elle ne s'est même pas excusée à ce propos. Elle n'a jamais amené de sel à l'enfant qui en a demandé. La nourriture est excellente mais le service a été pourri à ce restaurant. Même les gens qui n'avaient pas d'enfant à notre table se sont aperçus du piètre service de la serveuse et de son attitude désobligeante.

Je suis allée plusieurs fois au Houston et j'ai tjrs reçu un super service. Notre serveur Maxime était raide dans sa façon d'approche avec nous. Il manquait d'être raffiné avec un ton condescendant. Je penses pas que c'était volontaire de sa part mais son impatience était évidente et nous faisant sentir pas à l'aise en sa présence.

We were traveling back to Gatineau from a day spent outdoors. We took to Open Table to see what was in the neighbourhood and came across Huston's. The restaurant is very nice. Has a nice patio as well. Bar area is well defined and open. Service was very good as was the food. Price was better than we expected. All around a very nice experience.

Close to casino and area hotels as well.

Plus: We were seated at a booth which had a glass separation from the other booth. It completely blocked the sound. Nice touch!
Minus: Food - My brisket steak was covered in thick BBQ sauce and the sautéed mushrooms were covered with the same sauce! It was not specified on the menu special. Not cool.

I had the pasta with smoked salmon. It did not have any taste unless you ask the waiter to cover it with grounded pepper. The salmon didn't take smoky at all... The Crème Brûlée was also disappointing. It tasted like one made from a box and the topping which is one of the key of a crème brûlée was only "brûlée" in the center of the surface instead on the entire surface.
My guest did enjoy her meal but also said it lacked of tastiness.
