    Bread served wasn't fresh. Tha waiter forgot the wine I ordered. Nevertheless she put it on the bill... Service was really slow. The permasan salad was not special. The main courses were delicious.

    Made a reservation for 2:15 on Mother's day. I got a call telling me that they had a special buffet, which I was fine with. She failed to mention that everything will close at 3:00. The server informed us that the buffet will close in 40ish min in a rushed manner. When we checked out the buffet, the selection was disappointingly limited, consisting of seemingly store-bought pastries, charcuterie, 2 kinds of cheese and some cut up fruits. For a buffet that costs 20+ dollars, it was lacking in quality. The service was okay but one of our party who arrived a bit later wasn't even shown to the table and had to walk in awkwardly on his own. Overall, it was a disappointing experience. Perhaps it was because of the buffet but I would not return.

    The food was underseasoned/plated with little care and the bathrooms were in complete disarray. An overall disappointing (and overpriced) Mother's Day brunch.

    Le service de réservation à l’entrée etait d’une méchanceté incomparable et pas professionnelle. Nous avons été mis en attente avec 2enfants a cause qu’il n’y avait pas de place pour un enfant. Et apres 30min d’attente, on a du juste quitter a cause du délai et aussi de la fatigue des enfants. Je suis vraiment ps satisfaite du service et de l’accommodement.

    Best brunch in Montreal. Love the decor and ambiance, service is top notch and the food is very good. The all you can drink $25 mimosas is also why we go there.

    Lovely ambiance with high ceilings. We were celebrating our daughters university graduation. Food was delicious and beautifully plated. A pleasant surprise given its proximity to the notre dame basillica, was expecting the food to be more touristy. Highly recommend.

    Superbe restaurant au vieux port de Montréal, idéal pour une occasion comme un anniversaire ou une date. La nourriture était à couper le souffle, pour ne pas mentionner la tartine forestière qui était tout simplement décadente. Le tout, avec un prix très raisonnable. Maxime nous a fait passé un super moment et était très serviable. Bref, très content d’avoir découvert ce petit bijou, j’y retournerais très certainement!

    Pleasent place; oddly enough, not too full for a Sunday morning. Nevertheless, a bit slow on the placement and a bit too slow for food service; staff is friendly and willing but not experienced; scone excellent; french toast/fois gras: fois gras very good; toast on the dry side; nice gesture of staff in context of BDay celebration! Overall positive experience and will go back to explore other items on menu!

    Service was very slow. We waited over an hour for our food. We had to ask to get water to the waitress. A boozy smoothie was ordered and after 30 mins we had to remind the waitress about it. Then she asked what type of alcohol we wanted for it. When we finally got our food it was lukewarm. The foie gras plate was completely cold and nowhere in the menu it was written that it was served cold. We do not recommend this place.

    Went for my parntners birthday, it was wonderful. Our server was very accommodating as we don’t speak French, gave us wine suggestions, food recommendations. We had the beef tartare, escargot, and mushroom ravioli. We had the maraschino cherry drink it was delicious. Will be back next time we come to Montreal!

    Overall the food was very good. The restaurant is very nice but it was pretty loud with talking and music. While our waiter was very good, he seemed to have too many tables. The time from finishing dinner to getting a dessert menu to getting dessert was 45 minutes. If you have a good talking partner, its a great place. Otherwise expect long periods of silence and waiting.
