Cela fut un grand plaisir de manger à plusieurs reprises dans cette merveilleuse galerie d'art...Ici on parle d'une expérience de restauration, on est accueillis, reçu, jamais bousculés , informé avec courtoisie et que dire de la nourriture, un pur ravissement. On y marie avec harmonie, les saveurs et les textures, un peu acide, un peu croquant, plus doux, une véritable fête des saveurs. Un pur ravissement, tout y est et plus......Un must , je n'aurai pas le choix , je reviendrais.....

Took the tasting menu with wine, although the waitress said the portions are a little reduce because of the 2 appetizers, I thought it was going to be a satisfying meal.
Unfortunately it took almost an hour before the meal started and was given a two bite lobster and shrimp riette, which was tasty but jokingly small, this was followed with a quail cooked 2 ways, I mean a half a quail as the second appetizer. This on was also good but very tiny. Next was the main course which was 3/4 piece of pork chop that was cooked probably very well the first time as the fat or skin was supper crispy, but the chop itself was cool to warm and extremely tough. Not knowing since this was the chefs selection we thought that this was the way he meant to serve it. When I finally saw our waitress I had already finished the chop and she said we should of said something because it’s meant to be served hot. I thought the chef would have taken care of that himself since this is his tasting menu which he makes up and we only saw the waitress again after we were finished.
Well the chop was cold because it was precooked and reheated. The cheese course was nice but had been sitting around for awhile and dessert was a small scoop of chocolate pudding and vanilla. The wine pairing was excellent but you found you were left empty between courses better to order your own bottle at a 120$ up charge for pairing.
After it was all done with one cocktail each before dinner with tip 420$. My suggestion is to stick to the main menu I figure the food cost for this meal for 2 was about 20$. The kitchen obviously has talent but the chefs pairing is a money grab better to order a la carte.
The restaurant did credit us 25$ for the mistake on the pork chop but it was midnight and we were starving and looking forward to breakfast.
Breakfast was a miss also out of 5 eggs all were overcooked toast wasn’t buttered sausages and bacon were low quality cost 50$.

Nous avons essayé le menu découverte et c’était absolument extraordinaire (et je suis difficile au niveau des aliments). Notre serveur était sympathique, courtois et ses recommandations étaient judicieuses. L’ambiance était très romantique, joli petit restaurant avec une vue magnifique sur le cours d’eau tout en cascades. Nous avons passé une excellente soirée !

They offered a limited menu for our time slot of 3:30PM.
We had only soup and French fries.
Totally unsatisfactory.
We had intended to enjoy the full menu
The Mens washroom was unacceptable: so tiny you could hardly fit in.
Disappointed to say the least.

One of the best meals we've had in a long time! Everything was delicious! The parsnip and white chocolate velouté was absolutely delicious and the deer 3 ways was amazing. Our main course was the steak and it was cooked to perfection and the gravy was so flavourful. For dessert we had the creme brulee and it was the perfect ending to this meal. Just a small note. I found the portions to be the perfect amount for me however my husband found them a bit small.

This place is worth every dollar. Went here on a special date and loved the food, the courteous service and the waitress even got us a dessert that spelt thank you because she enjoyed our company so much. I had the roasted lamb (well done)which was served ribs style and even the colours on the plate were so attractive! Let me not mention the viewsss. We were seated outside near the waterfall and it added to the romantic vibe. We will definitely be back.

The reason why this meal will be memorable is because of Michael, the Maitre De. Our server was not nearly as well trained as one would expect of this rating of the restaurant and lacked paying attention to details. The food was mediocre with, for example, my lamb not grilled on the outside but it was medium rare to mushy in the inside. The presentation was also not up to standard. There was a mix up about the desert which required intervention by Michael. He is an extremely talented hospitality professional. He saw to it that things were right, such as correctly making sure the dessert was provided properly, taking away glasses that had been empty of the table for a long time, etc. Michael was an overseeing attentive Maitre De. who was not imposing but made the details completed properly. Louis-Paul, our server, requires more training to serve at a restaurant that is suppose to be a find dining establishment.

We had the Sunday Brunch.

There was a lot of food but the general quality was average. Apart from the starter plate, the main courses were the same as what you would get at another resto for $10.95.
Our food was lukewarm and a bit dry. Perhaps it stayed on the pass for a few minutes too long.

Our waiter was polite and knew her menu but it felt like she was in a rush to get us out ASAP.

Resto was clean and the view of the falls is nice.

I would return with a group of friends or family but would not as a couple. We didn't feel like the experience and food was worth $95 for two for breakfast.

I took two of my granddaughters, 13 and 16, out for their first experience of a fine dining restaurant. Everything was perfect. The younger one said she felt she had been treated like a princess.

After a fabulous dinner, we spent a lot of time outside watching the waterfall. Went back in and all of us really enjoyed the art gallery.

Quel dommage ! Le petit déjeuner santé n'était vraiment pas réussi. Le smoothie était vraiment trop sucré et la présentation manquait tellement d'amour ... Des graines de lin et de chanvre étaient agglutinées dans un coin. Un morceau de banane pointait dans le milieu de l'assiette peu ragoûtante. Par ailleurs, le service était impeccable et la serveuse était bien mal à l'aise de cette situation. "Nous n'en avons pas fait un plat" ! Elle a su arranger la facture sans que nous demandions quelque chose. L'endroit est extraordinaire. Il ne reste qu'à corriger la situation du petit déjeuner. La veille, nous avions commandé des oeufs qui étaient trop cuits ... Le chef du matin et le chef du soir ne sont sûrement pas les mêmes ...

Magnifique endroit pour le souper. Lw premier soir, nous avions une table en bordure de la fenêtre face à la rivière et le 2e soir sur la belle petite terrasse. Wow ! La nourriture est bonne sans être gastronomique quoique recherché. Le menu n'est pas exhaustif (5 choix pour chaque service) mais complet. Pour 2 soirs, c'était parfait. Il est intéressant de voir qu'on a laissé de la place sur la carte des vins pour quelques crus québécois, ontariens et canadiens Là encore le choix des vins n'est pas énorme mais bien pensé. On aime la musique feutrée (jazz, lounge) qui nous met tout de suite dans cette atmosphère relax.
