Prices are too high for the food quality, especially when a lot of choices were already gone by lunchtime. I think their pastries and desserts are very nice but not worth the price. It was extremely noisy, no social distancing and the bathroom was DISGUSTING! Expect a nightclub toilets at its worth during the night!
Surely - they can do much better!

Tasty brunch. Great service. Main problem was the outside set-up. It was a rainy day and rain drops were falling in my plate because of the metallic structure of the tent. It was full inside so we had to stay under the tent. Next time I’ll ask à table inside for sure.

Based upon my experience this restaurant is overrated. I ordered calamari. it was SOOO bad I couldn't eat it me and my sister were actually trying to force ourselves but we couldn't the first taste is good you can taste the grill but the after taste is sooo bad the calamari is not fresh and you actually can taste that it is not a good quality. But the French fries was good. we ordered Croissant au forage and croissant au beurre both were good. the hot chocolate were great but it wasn't warm enough it was more to cold side and the cup wasn't clean. (I read this before on the review so It looks like I wasn't the only one so the should be aware of that and listen to the reviewers to upgrade themselves)

I have been eating your stuff since I was 5 years old. Always been top shelf stuff. The last two times I find the pastry not very good. To be specific the Mille Feuille tastes very spongy. Appeared to be mass produced. Pastry should be flaky. Felt like a half loon moon from Vachon. The really keys tasted excessively sweet.
Something has changed and not for the better. Sorry

Love this place. Excellent service, great cocktails, unpretentious, well-chosen wine list, good food.
I wish there were a few more vegetarian options. But overall, a lovely place for lunch or a drink and a snack.

This was actually the last restaurant we dined at before the pandemic. This was the first restaurant we dined at since they eased restrictions in the city.

Everything from the spacious seating and to the friendly, attentive staff was on point!

Your blueberry french toast is always a hit, so delicious! Your take on avocado toast is like no other, goat cheese baby please!

Merci beaucoup pour une très belle expérience!

Everything about this restaurant is fantastic: the food, the staff, etc! The coffee and their pastries are to die for! You would think you're at a Paris ''café''. At night, it becomes the cutest little bistro where you can enjoy some delicious french cuisine. The service from the staff is very great as well!

We picked this restuarant because it was close to a METRO line and had table availability (which was tough in some places in Montreal). We were delighted with the menu and then we had the mushroom soup. It was the BEST mushroom soup we have ever had and we travel a lot and eat a lot of really good food. This was astonishing! We could have stopped there but then our entrees came and they were very good, the waitress was so sweet and attentive! We had a surprising and wonderful last night in Montreal thanks to Duc de Lorraine. If we had found it early in the week, we would have come back for more soup, to try some other entrees and left room for their lovely looking desserts which we were too full to try!

Exceptional food at a Montreal landmark. Pastry is superb and the sandwiches and breakfast dishes are all to perfection.

The staff was very welcoming but the prices overall were very high for what we ordered. A little lemonade was $8 and a little iced tea was $8 which was very expensive and these drinks were suggested by the waitress but we didn’t seem to locate these items on the menu at first glance. Portions are very small and I noticed that the table next to us ordered the sand French toast as I did and I seemed to have the ends of the brioche bread which made it a very small portion. I had two takeout two croissants as I was still hungry. Unfortunately as much I know that this restaurant has a big history in Montreal, I will not go back but happy I tried it.

I have been there on many occasions and really liked it. This time, they no so great. The cheese/meat platter was very small for two people. Two meats in a very small qty and two cheeses only. I ask to get old cheddar cheese to complement the plate but they had none! I understand that pastry is your thing but no cheddar cheese in a shop that sells cheese... I was offered goat cheese instead which I accepted. It took 20 minutes to get the cheese and the restaurant was 1/3 full. It cost me $200 with a $50 bottle of wine. Pretty expensive for a couple of cold cuts and a small amount of cheese. As I said previously, I have been there many times and the cheese/meat plate was much larger and had more choices and the service was much better. Maybe this was a one time thing but I cannot foresee going back to see if that is the case.

Service is great. Ambience cool with the Oratory in the background. Price is decent.
If food doesn’t fill you up, then, the bakery has many delights to die for.

We went on Mother's Day and I understand it's a busy day, but we were waiting 45 minutes to be seat down at the table and then we had to wait one hour and a half for the food. The waiters were all confused about what food what's going to which table and also our bill was wrong when we were ready to pay... a total mess...:(
