The food was amazing. The best fried calamari I think I've ever had. Good selection. It took a long time for the waiter to take our order but we finished in time to get to the theater with time to spare. Would definitely go back again

Nous avons spécifié dès notre arrivée l'heure à laquelle nous devions quitter, nous n'avons pas pu mangé notre dessert faute de temps . Nous avons avisé avant de commencer une allergie et on nous à servi un plat contenant l'aliment désigné.

Très belle expérience. Nous retournerons! Excellent service! Nous avions réservé pour un souper entre amies avant un spectacle. Réservation 17h30 donc restaurant tranquille même un samedi et nous avons pu manger tranquillement et déguster 2 bons vins jusqu'à notre spectacle de 20h. Bonne nourriture nous avons pris le menu à 35$ par personne ce qui nous a permis de gouter plusiers mets. Je suggérerais spontanément une réservation à ce restaurant avant un spectacle au St-Denis!

Nous avons vraiment adoré ce restaurant lors d'une sortie au Théâtre St-Denis. Vraiment bien situé, à quelques pas du théâtre. Le service est excellent et la variété des plats est vraiment très grande. Pour ne pas vous compliquer la tête ou si vous en êtes à votre première expérience de tapas, les choix proposés sont très variés et vous sortirez comblés du resto.

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les morceaux de formage de chèvre croquant qui sont servis sur un lit de légumes. Les filets de porc sont aussi excellent

La nourriture était excellente, le service était courtois, professionnel et chaleureux. La coordination entre les services était presque parfait, juste un petit oublie soit d'apporter notre verre de vin. Il a fallu le rappeler au serveur mais en même temps comment lui en vouloir il etait fort sympathique et le reste était tellement parfait qu'il s'est bien rattrapé et l'erreur est humaine 😊. J'y retournerai c'est certain.

Nourriture excellente, le restaurant est situé en face du Théâtre St-Denis ce qui est un plus.

Le service était un peu lent dû au fait qu'il n'y avait qu'une serveuse mais souriante.

Difficile voir impossible à rejoindre directement par téléphone pour faire ou modifier une réservation!

Manque de serveur quand le Resto est plein! Vendredi soir Resto plein et il y avait que 2 serveurs!

Menu modifié, maintenant il y a trop de choix de poisson comparativement aux choix de viande!

Ça reste quand même un bon choix, mais compte tenu que l'offre de repas est moindre pour une facture assez élevée, j'y retournerai, mais beaucoup moins souvent!

La nourriture est correcte, mais ne vaut définitivement pas le prix. Nous avons essayé la formule Découverte à 2 pour 99$. Bien que la quantité de nourriture soit correcte et que certains plats étaient bons, aucun des plats ne valait le prix affiché dans le menu à la carte. Le serveur manquait vraiment de professionnalisme: il prenait des photos avec 4 clientes bruyamment désagréables alors que nous attentions notre facture depuis un moment, ou il participait à une discussion osée de ces mêmes voisines de table. Je n'y retournerai pas et ne conseillerai pas ce restaurant à un ami.

En général j'ai beaucoup aimé, la nourriture était très bonne, notre serveur irréprochable. Par contre, l'endroit était très sale, beaucoup de poussière sur les tables en verre à côté de nous, on y voyait des traces de doigts. Les fenêtres étaient sales, bariolées. Des toiles de poussière pris après le calorifère. Les menus en papier carton étaient imbibés de rond graisseux et de trace de doigt. Les napkins et la coutellerie bas de gamme.
Avec un aussi bon menu et service, ils auraient intérêt à faire un bon ménage et maintenir un niveau de propreté plus élevé.

 (Vancouver)·Dined on April 28, 2017

The food was unremarkable. I ordered the cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon and they were not terrible but I have had much better. The 'sautéed' shrimp were 3 shrimp in a middle of a puddle of butter in a metal dish. They were underwhelming and tepid. This along with an expensive glass of a cab-merlot blend that was also unremarkable set me back far more than I should have paid.

I would say that if quality of food is important to you, you do not want to eat here.

If you get one if the tasting menus, DO NOT order extra unless you want to leave food at the table. The portions are generous. The microbrews are good. Lots of shellfish in their selections. They have some tables with swing seats which seems pretty cool.

The food was good, but regretfully the service was bad. We ordered a bottle of wine to start, 20 minutes later we still did not get our bottle... 25 minutes later, our tapas arrived, but still no wine ??? We finally had to ask for our wine but changed our bottle for a glass only... We will not be returning.

Nourriture bonne mais chère par rapport à la quantité servie et service de la cuisine completement pourrie!!! Manque flagrant de personnel tant à la cuisine qu'aux tables. Nous sommes arrivés à 18h pour le théâtre à 20h. Sur 9 tapas nous avons dû en annuler 2 manque de temps. Il est sans vous dire que nous étions affamés en sortant du resto. Ce qui était sensé être un beau souper en famille s'est avéré un vrai désastre!!!!

went at this restaurant several times, some classic meals have been changed but not for the better

at the end of the meal there was a bunch of noisy girls that were coming to celebrate a special Event, we were very relief to be close to leave because level of noise was simply not acceptable

service started very well because we were the first table in, but after an hour and half and couple of add tables in we started to get the time very long

At the end, we don't think we'll go back knowing there are so many very good restaurants very close to St-Denis theatre..sorry!

Nous sommes arrivés à 6.15hrs PM. Le serveur nous a demandé si nous avions un spectacle au St-Denis, nous avons confirmé que notre spectacle était à 8 hrs PM. Avons choisi 4 plats (2 X2) à partager. À 7hrs 40 j'ai été dans l'obligation d'exiger du serveur qu'il nous apporte les 2 derniers plats car nous devions quitter 10 minutes plus tard.....Je crois qu'il nous avait oubliés. Le serveur se défendait en disant que le problème était dans la cuisine..... Les plats sont arrivés à 7hrs45 et nous avons été obligé de les manger en vitesse (5 min) avant de quitter.
Expérience désagréable.

La nourriture était bonne mais nous en avons pas profité!

Le serveur est celui qui doit gérer auprès de la cuisine, le moment de servir ses clients.

We went there because it was across the street from the St-Denis theater. We ordered the "show" menu, which was nice because that was the only decision we had to make!

Food was OK. What I think we preferred was the fish soup with parmigiano cheese. The rest of the food (tapas style, small portions we shared) was OK. It was not bad, it was not outstanding either.

Service was actually pretty good. Waiters were all very nice and responsive.

The only disappointing note was the wine we ordered. They had a 2009 Rioja wine on the list at a very reasonable price, but when we asked for it, we were told they were all out. It was replaced by a 2015 from the same region. The wine was really not very good, too sweet and fruity for a rioja. Might be worth paying a bit more and get something better, or stick with beer on tap!

Ce fut une belle surprise ce petit resto de la rue St Denis. Nous avons a ce resto avant un spectacle au théatre St Denis. Nous avons gouté a plusieurs plats qui nous a été recommandé par le serveur. Mac and cheese au fruit de mer tres bon. La pieuvre belle portion. Le short rib de boeuf etait tres tendre. Les plats de type tapas ont de bonne portion.

Notre serveur était tres attentionné

POur ce qui est du vin, nous avons pris le vin au verre. Pour 8$ le verre, c'était tres raisonnable et le vin était tres correct.

Nous avons été tres satisfait.

Very disapointed by the dishes. The tuna tataki is a joke. Not only is it terribly small even for a tapa, but it was poorly seasoned with something that tasted like steak spices. For a fish tataki.

The food had nothing special. Would rather go to spanish tapas restaurants for a greater experience (Pintxo, Tapeo) roughly for the same price.

My first experience at Confusion, last summer, was excellent and I recommended the restaurant to other friends, and brought a group there for dinner this past weekend. I loved the first experience so much. but the second time around was not as great. The calamari, which was hot and crispy the first time, was cool and soggy. They were out of the lamb sliders and the seafood mac and cheese, while although, still really good, didn't have any lobster in it this time around.
For the price, the quality was just not there this time, and I am not sure I would go back. There are too many other great places to eat in Montreal.

Food was lackluster and mediocre. Often served well below room temperature (we got the découverte @ deux tasting menu), the food consistently failed to impress. There was no risotto croquette served with the salmon tartare. The waiter asked if we would like more bread with the tartare, we said yes and he never brought us any. The beef ribs really could have used some seasoning. The duck and salad were the only decent things served. The service was very slow, twice we waited half an hour for the next course and almost 40 minutes for the dessert! I'd really like to get those three hours of my life back, not to mention the $$$!
