Si la pièce de homard était très honnête on ne peut en dire autant de la portion salade qui était d’une qualité ordinaire et dont la portion était nettement insuffisante. Également la portion de toast était accompagnée de confiture commerciale servie ds un cup de plastique: inacceptable pour une brasserie comme la vôtre.

                                                              This is a personal opinion. Opinion personnelle Nous avions une réservation, placé rapidement dans un restaurant à moitié vide pour un vendredi soir. Ça débute mal on nous verse de l’eau pétillante dans un verre chaud sorti du lave vaisselle. La soupe du jour est une soupe aux pois verts, (froide) on ne nous a pas avisé que c’est un plat froid. Autre plat, salade de betteraves, déception, ce plat est sans goûts marié ou relevé, certes le plat est bien décoré mais aucunement relevé, goûts de betteraves rouges et jaunes, points. Le plat principal, j’ai commandé le bar, encore une fois un plat bien présenté. Le poisson est cuit parfaitement, la sauce citronnée est excellente, la petite salade de radis est excellente, toutefois, le chou cuit qui est placé sous le poisson est insipide, du chou sans goûts. Nous avons pris soin de demander de parler au gérant(e) qui est venu nous rencontrer très tardivement pour écouter nos commentaires. J’ai demandé à ce qu’elle goûte personnellement le chou en lui demandant si ce produit était à la hauteur du restaurant et de ce plat. Dommage elle n’est jamais revenu nous voir, aucune excuse pour les plats qui tombent à plats. On a eu le sentiment de nonchalances et d’un je m’enfoutisme. Bonne chance à Henri Birks, un si beau restaurant au décor extraordinaire et atmosphère très agréable, mais après quelques déception avec les plats et les prix dorénavant très chers, je n’y retournerai plus. Repas pour 3 personnes $500 incluant une bouteille de Condrieu. Respectueusement.

                                                              We were visiting Montreal for the weekend, and it was just the little piece of Paris we needed, the ambience was reminscent of a typical Paris afternoon in St Germain de Pres. Of particular note was the exceptional service, our waiter Arnaud was a gem, knew exactly which wine to pair with our meal. It is our go-to place in the heart of Montreal.

                                                              This was our first visit to Henri Brasserie, and we were very impressed. Although we only dined for breakfast, the atmosphere, food, and service were all superb. The interior is actually more beautiful than the website photos (which are already impressive). The bar, particularly, would be impressive for evening drinks. My wife and I will most definitely return!

                                                              En entrée, la salade de homard ne goûtait rien et le homard était dur. Steak tartare avec tignasse et salade d'accompagnement beaucoup trop vinaigrée. Toutefois, l'atmosphère est agréable.

                                                              Excellent cuisine promoting locally grown inputs where possible. Remarkable wine list. Very nicely refurbished building with a grand history. High ceilings, enough space between tables. All this in a nice ambiance, professional and sympathetic but unobtrusive personnel. A touch expensive but worth it for a special occasion. We will return for sure.

                                                              We were not served water nor given menus until we asked for them (we waited a long time for them)…and then got a bit of a sassy/attitude answer from the Maître D when we asked him for menus. He said it wasn’t his job to bring us menus but he’d do it anyway. That started off the evening badly. Our waiter was also not the most professional. You expect warmth, charm and class at such a place. The little tiny birthday madeline at the end felt more of a mockery and insult than a genuinely kind gesture. We ordered a lot of food and drinks and were very polite customers. We did not appreciate the arrogance and frosty service. We will not recommend to friends or colleagues.

                                                              J’avais vraiment de plus hautes attentes, bavette coriace ( medium saignant), sauce cocktail crevette sans gout, crevettes mal nettoyées, tarte au citron vraiment fade de goût…etc…. La présentation est belle, nous avons eu un bon service, le décor est superbe, mais la nourriture n’avait rien d’extraordinaire pour une soirée à 300$ pour 2…… ne vaut pas le prix.
