Un bon restaurant avec un personnel sympathique et efficace. Les plats sont frais et copieux. C’est une bonne adresse au centre de Montréal. Il faut réserver si vous voulez une place.

First time visit and we had lunch from the "a la carte menu". Only a few lunch specials that were good value but not what we were looking to eat that day. Soup and salad were great as was the fish and chips. The fried cheese dish was just ok as the cheese was hard and a bit rubbery. Excellent and timely service throughout the meal. Wine was very good but pricey compared to the food cost. A 9 oz serving was approximately $20 (plus t & t). Great dessert and coffee at a reasonable price. Food cost $70 and wine cost $40 for 2 people. Ambiance very nice as it is in an old bank and original walls and ceiling added to the charm. Overall a lovely experience and will go back again.

We were seated near two large tables of noisy diners when other quieter locations were available. No bread was provided. My drink (a simple Martini on the rocks) was served up. My salmon was a bit dry. But my husband enjoyed his flank steak

Beautiful Ambiente and Perfect Service. Was quite noisy towards the end because of a birthday party but it is also a lively Bar. Wouldn’t recommend for a very private date as also you sit quite close to neighbour table. But for group of friends or family get to getter amazing!

Excellent food in a beautiful environment, reminding a classic Parisienne Brasserie. Very warm service. A little bit more noise than what you would expect in a place like this. A great experience you should have visiting Montréal.

Unfortunately, the evening was not what we hoped.
The food was not good, watery flavourless risotto
Cluttered table
Very long wait for food
The host explained the reason our food was late was because they were taking care of the group behind us, but we’d be next ( very odd way to explain)
It will not be a redo

Did not have the wine we requested....server didnt offer us a substitute for the same price of same grape. Duck dish was very good, lobster risotto was overcooked and both dishes arrived lukewarm. Server didn’t check in on us in a timely manner. Waited a longtime for our check. The whole experience was overpriced for what it was.

Wow the service was impeccable at this establishment. Our waiter Julien(hope I spelled it right) was knowledgeable with wine pairings. My steak melted like butter and my guest enjoyed every bite of their meals. 10/10 would eat here again!

I was disappointed with the food as I had high expectations. The atmosphere, vibe and servers were great! But the food was not what I expected for a restaurant of this caliber. I had the ravioli and the pasta had dried around the edges like it had been sitting for some time. Flavours were good but for the price and reviews, I was not impressed.

Since our last visit, the menu items changed a little. We loved the scones at Suite 701, however, this time, there is only 1 scone in the serving, not 2. The scone is served with whipped cream, not chantilly cream. This was all for double the price. The chicken and waffles were ok. The chicken was very good, however while my waffles were crispy, my friend's waffles were soggy. The weekend service has a DJ playing which gives a great vibe. Point out to the greeter that your reservation is with open table, because ~3 hours after brunch, I received an email from open table asking why I didn't show up to my reservation.

We were disappointed. The dinning/bar room was extremely loud. Initially we were shown a seat in the isle, whichI refused - it was too busy. Our waiter did an ok job until the work began to accumulate and I had to ask for him to come to the table to request another glass of wine with the meal. The meals themselves were ok but not the quality of their prices. We would not return.

First trip to Montréal. The food was exceptional. Service was good. They didn’t have the wine I ordered, so that was a bummer. Overall, still a great experience. The room is very well appointed and the staff very friendly

Service to hotel guests seemed to be preferential compared to walk-in customers - when it should be the same. Our regular waitress was very friendly but another was topping up water for us but didn’t finish because another table of hotel guests had a question for her. Also reservations were needed online and showed all booked up when only a couple tables were actually being used.

we went there for the boozy brunch and had a great experience. The food was awesome, we were able to it outside too which was a lovely touch, and meant we could be a little bit louder. The mimosas came non stop, I don't think we had an empty glass the entire time we were there (about 2 hours). We also had a bunch of free shots as it was someone in our parties birthday, great service, will definitely be going back!

My friend and I went here for bottomless brunch and were not disappointed! We really enjoyed the multiple options for mimosas, and our waitress was always quick to refill our glasses. She did an excellent job of handling everyone on the outdoor terrasse - kudos to her! The food itself was fine, nothing too special but tasted good.

Le seul petit bémol a été à l'accueil du restaurant, nous attendions près des portes d'entrée et personne ne nous a abordé. Nous avons finalement pu choisir la terrasse. Somme toute, nous avons adoré l'expérience. Le service était excellent, notre serveuse était attentionnée. La nourriture était excellente également. Je recommande ce restaurant!

We ordered flank steak and lentil cassoulet. The steak was ok nothing special but the fries were soggy/oily instead of crisp. The cassoulet was bland. The salad arrived without salad dressing. We were expecting something better. Overall very disappointing.

The service at this restaurant was phenomenal! They really went the extra mile to make sure the food was prepared the way we wanted-the manager even stopped by to check that we were happy. Very conveniently located near Notre Dame! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice place to eat in Montreal!

I really wanted to love my experience here. My vegetable tart was cold however and my duck woefully over cooked. Next time I will order more straightforward dishes.
