 (Montreal)·Dined 6 days ago

Pas de sensation d'extase à la sortie de restaurant. Le repas fût bon mais sans plus vu le prix payé. Je m'attendais à bien mieux. Les ris de veaux avec truffe sur la carte mais sans truffe dans l'assiette m'ont fortement déçu. Je reconnais que je suis dur dans mes appréciations, mais j'ai mangé dans les plus grands restaurants de Montréal et je n'ai jamais été déçu mais là oui.
Servir des verres de vin à 21 et 25$ est de l'abus aussi.

Le lieu est chic et intemporel, les plats et les vins sublimes... mais cependant l'accueil comme le service pourraient être un tout petit plus chaleureux !

La cuisine, sa présentation et le service continuent à se situer dans le haut de gamme; la qualité des mets et le savoir faire sont remarquables. Un seul bémol : la réverbération de tous les sons ambiants rend la conversation plutôt difficile; il y a lieu d'espérer des mesures d'atténuation à cet égard.

On y retourne pour la bouffe et le service

Les raviolis étaient tres bien présentés MAIS ils n'étaient tièdes et pas fondants, ils étaient beaucoup trop fermes, voir durs. C'était décevant pour un resto de cette réputation. Le plat du cardeau était bon.
Service peu sympathique.
J'y étais allée il y a de cela 9 ans et c'était bien meilleur. C'est dommage.

Food was spectacular.
End of service, unfortunately left a sour note that partially spoiled an otherwise memorable meal.
We unfortunately had to wait upwards of 20minutes to get the chèque after we were done with coffee and dessert.
As we were dining with a toddler that had started to get frustrated and sleepy, this was an issue.
Once the chèque did come, I noticed that there had been an error and that we were double charged for an item. We waited for the waitress to correct the error, but it was simpler to swallow the extra cost than to continue waiting for it to be corrected.
Like I said, one of the tastiest meals we have had in a while, but it will also be remembered as a frustrating one as the service at the tail end seemed to slow to a snails pace.
Food was worth the $400+ dinner for two, service not up to par.
Overall bittersweet...

Petit resto sympathique, atmosphère intimiste, bonnes suggestions pour accord mets-vins, excellentes entrées de carpaccio de poisson et bisque de homard, magret de canard très bon mais accompagnements un peu manquants, crémeux à l’érable très bon mais difficile à manger. Excellent rapport qualité/prix!

Nous avions une reservation pour 20h30, notre table n'etait pas prête.
On nous a proposé de prendre l'apéro à étage en attendant notre table. À 21h 15 , notre table n'était toujours pas prête.
Attendre 15 min nous semble raisonnable, mais 45 min !
Auncun excuse présenté par le personnel. Nous n'y retournerons pas.
D'ailleurs nous avons quitté après le 45 min d'attente.

The 7 course tasting menu was seriously good and had a nice balance of vegetables, seafood, meat/poultry and dessert. The standout course was a duck confit ravioli topped with foie gras, but every course was great. Courses change often, but based on my meal, I would guess that you can't go wrong. The chef has a great sense for how to combine ingredients and to artistically use complex sauces that bring the components together. Be prepared for a leisurely meal - European style. Highly recommended.

First let me say the food here is very good. The reason for my poor rating is because the service was lacking and the chef is not cordial. I left a note in my reservation mentioning that I will be flying in from California and wish to bring my own wine and pay corkage. I never got a response so i took a chance and brought my bottle. When I arrived I was told I cant bring my bottle. Okay...I understand. Policy is policy. This is just a case of poor communication. I asked for a wine list. After waiting 5 minutes the waitress produced a wine list and gave it to my 20 year old niece! Since I am the one that brought in a bottle...and I was the one that asked for a list, why was it given to her? I ended up buying a $220 bottle off their list. We sat at the table for nearly 30 minutes with no menu. We had water. That's it. We had to ask for a menu! One of my guests was Vegan so we had to ask for something special off the menu. I understand how this could present a challenge so I sent the chef a glass of HIS $220 wine offering a humble apology. The chef never came out to say thank you or acknowledge that he received my wine. It would have been the perfect opportunity to explain local wine laws to me or even discount my dessert. I felt the chef and management just didn't care.

High priced plates with quality ingredients but not overly flavorful. The somelier needs customer service training. A table was playing YouTube videos and singing, unacceptable in such a restaurant. When we made a comment, it was brushed off by the staff, again unacceptable. If they want to continue selling a $100 per head experience before alcohol, the service quality needs to increase, you're in Michelin star territory at that price.

Beautiful restaurant (with art by the owner), small, and manages to be both warm and stylish. Fabulous food -- among the best I've had. Amazing first courses -- veloute of peas with lobster, and a brilliant salad with courgette flowers filled with a creamy cheese along with delicious and unusual greens. Delicious Brouilly at a reasonable price; excellent duck and lamb for our mains. Overall, great!
