I loved that I was able to make an online reservation easily with open table.the view was great My brunch was very good I had the Sante, My husband did not like his English breakfast, the sausage was dry, blood pudding very salty and the bacon was undercooked.
My kids had egs Benedict , the holland aisle was very fruity , the eggs where good but not hot.
Service was quick and pleasant. Nice atmosphere .
I would go back but do what I did and ask the server for their thoughts on the best items.
- Food was good, not fantastic
- Price was incredibly expensive vs. comparable places nearby and given size of the portions
- Management and staff mindset is to extract as much money from patrons as possible, not rude but unpleasant
- lack of champagne option by the glass was very disappointing (recommended pseudo bubbles from Loire region that gave us heart burn all night)
- Feels like tourist trap, won't go back, wouldn't recommend to a friend
It was a special menu and everything was good. We chose the option with wine accords, it was a lovely dinner. I liked the music! Groovy enough and unformal. Very, very nice discovery.
Went on Valentine's Day, so there was a special menu. This could have been a problem for us, as a vegan couple. But our wonderful waitress quickly resolved this issue for us, and what followed was a delightful meal. All the service staff were very friendly. Great attention to detail.
First time at Communion. Was a little surprised how the menu worked but once got the hang of it, the food was divine. Had the pork belly, green salad, beef tartare, the Pont-Neuf frites, the charcuterie board and the accras de turbot. Tthey were all excellent. And the piece de résistance was a sublime chocolate walnut brownie. Yeah! Oh yes, the wine was good too. We had a lovely Côte de Rhone.
Great place for group. It´s a tapas restaurant only. The salmon and shrimp tapas were excellent !!! A must try place.
My boyfriend and I went there for NYE and really appreciated our dining experience. The Jerusalem Artichoke cream served with the scampi, the tomato emulsion served with the ravioli as well as the carambar and yuzu side with the chocolate desert were my favourites! The inside decor is beautiful with some brick and tile walls and the bar looks amazing. I found our waitress very pleasant and polite. Definitely worth it!
Was there for a bridal shower. It was perfect, we had plenty of time to chat, the waitress was helpful, giving alternatives to a dish my friend wanted (switched the parsnip to spinach).
Both mains were fantastic and plated up so beautifully that the bride to be wanted pictures of it. Pork chops were seared to perfection, was tender and juicy. Duo fish in bisque was equally good, both trout and sea bass cooked to just right and the bisque sauce made me wish for a spoon, I used the potato and bread to get to it. Con: portions were too much for us, we had no space for dessert.
Would definitely go back again.
I know one reviewer complained of slow service but it's more a sit-down restaurant where you chat leisurely as you wait for your food.
This restaurant in Old Montreal is in a beautiful location near the water where you can watch the people and horses go by. We ordered a brunch that came with poached eggs on a delicious spinach salad, fresh fruit salad, a yogurt parfait with homemade strawberry jam and the best granola, blueberry pancakes and a goblet of warm maple syrup. Before that came out we got a basket of toasted french bread and sesame bagel with homemade jam. My cappucino and my daughter's hot chocolate (also both fantastic) didn't come right away (they came with our meals), so the server brought us complimenatry freshly squeezed orange juice (which my daughter enjoyed watching get made). The brunch kept us full for six hours as we walked all over Montreal!
2 heures avant de recevoir notre menu principal et aucunes excuses avant la fin. On nous dira qu'inhabituel.
brunch delicieux jus d orange tres frais tres belle assiette service impeccable a retourner c est sur
Highly recommended ! Special menu and pricing for Taste of Montreal week. Worth your while to try it at any time.
Food was different and out of this world for price. Great wine list. Service ambiance. LOVE IT!
The food was very disappointing. What more can be said - the 4 of us each had the table d'hote, for me, two out of the 3 courses were actually bad, the dessert being inedible. But maybe worse than that, at 6:15 when we were seated, we told the waitrr we had to leave at 7:45 for the theater. He assured us, of course, that it would be no problem. At 7:40 we were still not served dessert, despite frequent reminders that we had a time deadline. We rushed out of the restaurant with the 4 desserts hardly eaten, thankfully for me, I would not have eaten mine anyway, after the first bite.
How could anyone not love this place? The old Montreal charm by the port, mixed with a rustic interior and a modern twist on traditional food make Communion and absolutely wonderful place to dine for tourists and locals a like. Will definitely be back!
Nous étions deux pour le brunch sur la terrasse. Nous avons attendu plusieurs minutes avant que serveuse vienne nous voir. Une fois les plats commandés nous avons attendus plus de 40 minutes pour recevoir nos plats qui étaient froids. Nous avons demandé à faire changer le pain puisqu'il était froid et sec, on nous a rapporté exactement le même. Jamais nous n'avons reçu nos jus d'orange inclus avec le repas. Nous avons du nous même demander à remplir nos tasses de café. Toute l'attention était porté sur un groupe qui était sur la terrasse. Honnêtement, ce fut une expérience très décevante, le menu est très inspirant mais là s'arrête l'excitation.
