First we are picky eaters. We asked about adding lobster to the romaine lettuce. No can do but you know what... the chef is right this stands alone.
Much more limited menu than precovid..
Burger was ok. I had a cheese plate serviced with no crackers. Just the think German style bread that was on the table...
thank goodness the cheese was tasty- who does that? No special bread or crackers...
Place was deserted.

The lobster burger was average not worth 33 $ the fries too salty , lemon pie the crust was over baked and the meringue was hard / crumbling . The only good thing was the drink

We came for brunch on a Friday morning and the place was almost totally empty. I had the banana pancakes which were a little overcooked and pretty spongy. My husband had the lobster eggs Benedict which was definitely overcooked- the lobster wasn’t tender and the egg yolk wasn’t runny at all. The bacon was delicious, as were the breakfast potatoes. Great service. Would go back but order differently.

Burgers were so over well done felt like we were eating a hockey puck. Fancy burgers we usually get asked how we like them done, I am assuming this burger has been sitting on a side table for sometime and reheated up that is why it was so dry? Steak tartare was nothing special, I've had way better for less price. Fois gras, was over cooked. 🥺

overall very good! Food was amazing. Service was dope and professional
I didn't think it was a great place to have intimate conversations though. We were so close to neighboring tables and it was like we were having dinner with them too.

ps: Probably Not necessarily a bad place if you want to meet new friends though.

Very nice place for a Sunday Brunch. The food was good and the atmosphere perfect. We had a reservation and we were offered a choice of tables to choose from. Once we sat, we ate our brunch and they basically left us alone. I did not feel rush. What I want for a Sunday.

Our worst experience for a New Years Dinner ever!!
Cost was a robbery, very small plates, zero tasty, the most expensive I paid in my whole life!! and have nothing.
I will never return!!!
I’m going to place all this comments on Tripadvisor too!!

Food was absolutely horrible. The prix fixe menu of 90 dollars was NOT worth the price. The fois gras app was unpalatable and the seared duck entree tasted like iron. Was so disgusting. I can’t believe we spend New Years here. Very disappointment. Our server however was great.

Service was good. Food was mediocre. The only thing we really enjoyed was the beef tartare. The Iceland cod was one of the most confusing dishes I’ve ever ordered. Fish was cold. Skin was not crispy. And flavor combinations were bizarre. Nice atmosphere. Probably will not return.

What can I say! We opted for an earlier dinner-having had a few too many cocktails the night before..actually starting at La Société’s nickel bar and ending up at The Dominion Square Tavern(also excellent!) - this night we wanted a nice long and lingering meal in a cozy spot. We arrived at 6:15 (much earlier than we usually eat) and arrived to an empty restaurant. Knowing the place would eventually be bustling, we took advantage of our time. Our server - who turned out to be the sommelier - but who clearly was also a server, bread attendant, water procurer, manager, wine consultant, menu expert and all around kind, helpful and professional restauranteur.

We were offered a cozy corner, but could hear the cool jazzy covers coming from the bar musician (and who- we learned later was the pastry chef). After a couple of vodka (hers) and gin (mine) martinis- we discussed the menu and wine options.

The shrimp cocktail-my wife’s favourite classic was amazing while I had the marrow bone...divine. The steak frites were excellent and à point (perfectly medium...on the rare side of it too...awesome!).

We also spend a good amount of time chatting about wine, our fathers love of hunting and growing up in rural areas...me being from New Brunswick and he from (if I recall) northern France in the Alps.

We did indulge in the aforementioned pastry chef/musician’s treats. The Paris-Brest and chocolate lava cake...so good...so good.

A little over two hours later, with the restaurant filling up with the Saturday crowd Yannique zigzagged all over the restaurant...chatting with customers, taking orders, explaining dishes, making people laugh...a true host.

The digestif he brought to us gratuit just before we left...I still cannot put my finger on what it was...but it was out of this world.

I have not had an evening like that in a long time. Thank you very very much to Yannique.

I called and asked several times what the Christmas menu was, and was told it hadn't been finalized. Imagine the disappointment when we all turned up for a $45 brunch of semi-cooked bacon drowning in grease, dry bread, cheap sausages , overcooked fried potatoes... disgusting. Music so loud we had to yell.

The space was beautiful and the service impeccable, BUT... the food was basically inedible. The shrimp cocktail was undercooked and warm - the shrimp was still translucent and the cocktail sauce was SWEET- gross! The onion soup had NO flavor AT ALL. It needed sherry or salt or something... how can Montreal screw up onion soup so badly?? The entrees were terrible - the filet was covered in a thick tasteless sauce to make up for the awful cut and the cod was inedible. I didn't eat more than one bite- undercooked and served over raw onions and a cardboard tomato tarte. I was disappointed that the server didn't acknowledge the lack of consumption and offer to remove from the bill or get me something else. The drinks were tasty and that's where it ended. I don't know how this place had such great reviews - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY... you'll be ordering room service later.
