    Very disappointed. Was expecting high end quality food and service. Instead, received unattentive service and very ordinary food for a premium price. No bread/toast available for breakfast! Very limited choice on brunch menu. Very small portions. $29 for bacon and eggs no toast! Beautiful building but no soul to this place, very unfortunate. Will not return and do not recommend.

    Beautiful restaurant with an amazing menu! From nice Champagnes to main course.. everything was a delight! We reserved via Open Table and didn’t see that I <>for an seating on the terrace, but fortunately, the hostess managed to seat us inside. Really appreciated the effort (and will be new careful when reserving with the app).

    The food was excellent and expertly prepared. The ambiance was very nice and the decor was very classy. The ambiance was however marred by a table of four individuals who were extremely loud and kept talking and laughing LOUDLY all night. Our waitress never introduced herself and although extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list, offering may suggestions initially, she was not as attentive to our needs as we felt she should have been considering the quality and price of the food. If we were to consider going back we would want a quieter table and a bit more attentiveness from our waiter/waitress.

    We have been to this restaurant a few times over the past years and it was always very good. The decor and ambiance is second to none. However the food needs improvement. Even our waiter recommended to us not to take certain dish… Contrary to the other times we ate there the food was very average and not what you would expect from this quality of restaurant.

    Très bel endroit que nous apprécions par le passé. malheureusement hier soir, les employés sur le plancher manquait d’organisation. Nous nous sommes faites demander la même question par 4 employés différents. Notre table a été montée (couverts) seulement à l’arrivée de notre entrée soit une quarantaine de minutes après notre arrivée. Les tables autour de nous n’étaient pas montées. Ce n’est pas digne d’un resto de cette qualité. Nous avons tout de même laissé un généreux pourboire car le personnel est gentil et courtois.

    The food was good but the service was lacking. We were never offered a wine or cocktail list although it appeared other tables had plenty of wine at their tables. We ordered sparkling water and because we were table of 4, we finished that very quickly. We were never offered anymore and Had to ask twice. We were never offered any bread and butter although other tables were. I’m not sure if they were short staffed but it just seemed like it was our table that was forgotten about. We had high hopes that were disappointed.

    The restaurant went with a limited choice, overpriced Formula 1 menu. Mistake! I was unable to make a reservation for the time I wanted - 6:30 - and settled for 5:30.. The restaurant was half empty when we left at 7. Will not return..Ever.

    Was called by the restaurant a few hours before the reservation time to confirm attendance, and told then that there was a limited menu because of the Formula 1 weekend. It was too late in the day to find reservations elsewhere during such a busy weekend. Service was slow and choppy. Menu was limited and not conducive to lactose allergy, and when inquiring about allergies was told in no uncertain terms that the Chef was not going to make any exceptions. The food was subpar at best. The lobster thermidor was so salty that it was inedible. Asked whether unfinished drinks could be taken to room in the hotel upstairs, but the waiter ("Marc with a c") never returned to tell us if it was okay, so we left. Terribly disappointing.

    I was very much looking forward to the experience of eating at Henri's. Beautiful interior, but the terrasse was not up to par. The service was also not what one would expect from the image this restaurant strives to create. Worst dry martini ever, even on the second round after I politely described what "dry" meant. The salmon starter was just okay. The presentation was "unfinished." My medium rare bavette was cooked correctly, but it was covered in a tasteless brown sauce with onion bits that resembled nothing more than a Lipton soup mixture. The fries were dry and hard, and all skin. Peel your potatoes for the love of God! The mesclun was served in a tiny ramequin (???) that the fork fought with to grasp a bit of evasive leaves. Unfortunately, I have nothing kind to say about this restaurant. My impression is that this self-described brasserie française is actually more like "French" restaurant one would find in Toronto or Atlanta. Maybe unsuspecting tourists might find it acceptable, but it is not worthy of being called a Montreal restaurant.
