    Une expérience exceptionnelle et ce, à tous les niveaux. La qualité des ingrédients est vraiment remarquable et les plats sont de véritables oeuvres d'art. Le soucis du détail est sans pareil, surtout pour un repas du midi. Le service était attentionné et courtois, en plus d'être très discret. Jeanne a su nous conseiller dans le choix des plats, en fonctions de nos préférences et restrictions. Chaque invité était comblé. L'ambiance est calme et agréable, idéal pour une discussion ou une rencontre. L'équipe a également souligné l'anniversaire de notre invité de manière chaleureuse. Bref, je donne 5 étoiles à toute l'équipe de James Le Restaurant. Merci et à très bientôt!

    Front desk staff very attentive . From front door to coat check. Maître D ok perhaps a bit chaotic as other couples were waiting for check in . Music was good and soft sound . Able to speak and be heard by other diner. Were not properly informed about flower and loot bag . The lady at the concierge was able to correct situation only after we left the restaurant. That was the only hiccup . Bathroom/ toilet on the top landing would be a good idea.

    Nous étions 4 amis. Au cours de la 1ere heure c'était difficile de discuter car le band de jazz jouait trop fort. Puis, suite à une plainte, le volume est devenu acceptable et l'ambiance était fort agréable dans le restaurant. Le service est impeccable. La cuisine est absolument irréprochable! De toute évidence, il y a un chef de haut calibre dans la cuisine! Le service de valet, jadis gratuit, coûte maintenant 20$. J'y retournerai, c'est certain. J'ai enlevé 1 étoile à cause du bruit lors de la première heure et du coût du service de valet. Prévoir 300$ par couple (apéro, vin, jazz band, taxes et pourboire inclus).

    J'ai beaucoup aime ma premiere experience au restaurant de l'hotel et c'est sure que ce ne sera pas la derniere... Toutefois, l'assaisonnement est un peu trop sale selon mon gout personnel (la soupe et le veau...), j'ai du mange plus de pains pour pouvoir savourer le restant ! Le choix des plats est un peu limite mais les services - de l'accueil jusqu'a la fin - sont impeccables ! 5*

    L'endroit est sublime! Le garçon ne connaissait pas sa carte des vins et ni le menu (5 services). Le menu était bien mais pour l'endroit aurait pu être plus spécial (l’entrée de tourtière était tiède et très sec..) Je y retournerai malgré! Un endroit sublime pour un premier rendez-vous ou pour l’apéro

    Delicious meal with friends. We ordered the following dishes from the MTL a table menu which the ceviche as appetizers and main which consisted of pork & the other was monkfish. Every thing was well prepared & presented. Our waiters were very knowledgeable and accommodating Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant in such a beautiful setting at the St James hotel. They also gave a very nice brunch menu.

    Pour un hôtel réputé, je m'attendais à beaucoup mieux pour le restaurant de l'hôtel. Lustres de cristal très sales et poussiéreux. Napperon de plastique que j'utilise pour l'extérieur sur mon patio. Suiteur & maître d hôtel pas souriant qui place le service de nourriture précipitamment. Sur les 6 places il manquait un couvert à notre arrivé à la table. Nous avons du nous servir nous-même à 2 reprise la bouteille de mousseux, ce qui est innaceptable dans ce type de restaurant. Aucune empathie vraiment déçu...

    I've been to xo before Iast year during MtI à tabIe and Ioved the experience. This years was a bit different. We where pIaced in the front of the restaurant which I don't mind at aII but with a view of the giant fIat screen TV above the bar ... watching the news of Trump's impeachment triaI was not what I had in mind for a nice night out. This is just a generaI rant that I have against modenization and screens which are aIready aII over the pIace. It made this beautifuI restaurant Iook Iike a sports bar and gave it a strange vibe. The food was ok ... not bad, but not impressed. We had the artic char tartare, the veaI and each tried the two avaiIabIe desserts. I have friends who are good cooks and I've eaten much better meaIs at their pIace on a Tuesday. I found that they tried too hard with the goId Ieaves in the appetizer and the desserts and not enough on the actuaI food itseIf. It Iooked very nouveau rich and my Iast comment to my friend was ... a hoteI restaurant wiII aIways be a hoteI restaurant ...

    Ça faisait un moment que avec mon conjoint nous voulions y aller, du coup on est parti pour célébrer son anniversaire. Nous avons été très déçus de la nourriture. Qui ne goûtait vraiment rien! Les pates était trop cuites sans assaisonnement, sans aucun goût. Nous avons à peine touché aux plats. C’etait Si mauvais que les manger était une corvée . On a finit notre soirée au Mc Donald avec une poutine :( Ça a complètement ruiné une soirée romantique.

    One of the worst meals we have had in a long time. The flank steak (medium rare ordered. well done presented) was like shoe leather and barely able to be eaten. On the bright side my wife's veal was relatively good and they didn't charge me for my main dish. I asked to speak to the "chef" but was told he was off today and the backup (a sous chef) wouldn't come out to speak to us!!!
