Juste pour le spectacle, c'était super. L'ambiance très bonne. Lisa Melphi était extraordinaire! Un peu déçus de la nourriture par rapport au prix payé. Les portions n'étaient pas suffisantes et les choix n'étaient pas extras non plus.

Très bon service et bonne bouffe. Il y a longtemps que je n'ai pas été aussi bien accueillie par une serveuse.
Le seul bémol, c'est le temps d'attente pour payer notre commande.
Merci!

Nous étions bien installés dans un décor hétéroclite mi-victorien, mi far-west. Bonne table, bonne ambiance.

I called in advance to make sure my reservation would not be seated right in front of the band due to my ears and they assured me we would be well seated. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we arrived on time but had to wait to do a coat check for 15 minutes. Afterwards, the host brought us to our table RIGHT in front of the band, I asked if we could please sit elsewhere as I called in advance to avoid this issue. The host told me that he could not hold my table as I was one hour late (FALSE). I asked again to be seated elsewhere and he told me no, I had to be persistent and I got placed in the back with no view of the band at all, near the bar. The service took very long and we had to get up to ask for a desert menu as well as order our desert.. Truly disappointed...

Les places sont un peu serrées devant les musiciens, mais c'est un moindre mal comparé à tout le plaisir que nous avons eu. Le service était absolument parfait : chaleureux, humain et professionnel. La déco touffue et hétéroclite est absolument grandiose. Tout est généreux, en fait. Vous aimez le jazz? Courez-y.

+ Great food, ambiance, service and great music !!

- Heated backrests are a nice idea, but heat setting seemed stuck on broil (was a bit too hot) and was a bit pricier than I thought at 250$ for two (but ok we did have 2 bottles of wine and We shared an entrée) still, a little on the pricey side !

I asked for a simple candle because I went for my boyfriend's birthday, and they did not do it. So disapointing. Also the entrance was 10$ + mandatory vestiaire for 2$ and this was not state anywhere. The only thing good was the brand and the nice waitress.

Would NOT recommend.

Great show, definitely recommend going for the music, the food was average, my wife and I had chicken and ribs. The ribs were burnt around the edges , not very tender. I cannot comment on other foods, it was our first time there. I would return another time and try another dish. Parking outside for $8, did not have walk far in -20 degree weather.

The decoration, ambiance and music were amazing!!! The place was busy and it took 20 minutes and me asking if someone would serve us. The food took a very long time, not sure if our order was forgotten....people that arrived 30 minutes after we did, got their meal first and ordered the same steak we did. The menu offers Fillet Mignon and what you get looks like a steak. The server was very cheerful and pleasant no complaint about that, the servers were all over the place and did not seem to be assigned to a specific area. Next time I'm in Montreal will definitely go but for wine and music after having dinner elsewhere .

The very "nice" door guide blamed us for reserving in the last minute, and punished us by commanding us to deposit our coat at the door with $2 and letting us sit near the big glass window with a useless heating lamp on a -24 degrees Celsius night.

We drove far to the restaurant in that cold cold night, and left with still cold feet even after the dinner. It was an awful night which was supposed to be a wonderful night for 10 years old friends reunion.

Shame on the rude service! Live music is still great even from a very cornered table. Maybe next time you should at least let your guests have a descent dinner in a warm room, even it's their own "fault" to reserve in the last minute.

We'd rather to spend money with a hot meal anywhere else, if you could just let us know all seats were booked at the first place.

素敵な音楽と、店内の雰囲気は一度行く価値があると思います。19時半から、30分程度ずつ、3度の生演奏(同じグループ)があり、久々に良い音楽をゆったり楽しめました。
料理の味は悪くないし、前菜、メイン、デザート、コーヒーのコースを頼みましたが値段のわりにボリュームもあり、よかったです。ただ問題は
料理の出てくるスピードがあまりに遅かったこと。その間、生演奏を楽しめたのでそういう意味ではそんなに苦ではありませんでしたが、普通のレストランであれば文句を言う人がいてもおかしくないぐらい料理の提供に時間がかかっていました。しかもなんとなく、料理の温度がぬるめだった感じです。
一応担当のウェイトレスの人が時間がかかりすぎることを気にはしてくれていたので、こまめに声はかけてくれていたのでヨシとします。

I really enjoyed music in live.
It took too much time in serving foods. We could enjoy music meanwhile but it was very long although our staff was taking care of us.
However, our purpose was to enjoy good music, I’m satisfied totally.
