I got stomach sick from the beef tartare. The customers near our table took a nasty smelly cheese fondu that ruined the experience. It was a very unpleasant odor in the restaurant. The garbage smell really took away from a great experience my steak could have been.

J'ai reçu une aile de raie qui n'a pas été fileté... Impossible de déguster sans manger des arêtes ou du cartilages! Cela n'a pas semblé troubler le serveur...même après lui avoir signifié! Le dessert était trop froid pour en apprécier la valeur....Service rapide mais désintéressé! Tout les amis et moi-même ne retournerons pas...

Choisi resto car jamais essayé et logions à l’hôtel connexe. Drôle de configuration de l’entrée par l’hôtel, espace sombre, plusieurs zones mal définies, où est l’hôtesse ?...qui nous dit qu’on doit attendre la table...passez au bar!...sans nous y accompagner et il n’y a personne de toute façon!
Soir de l’événement Mtl à table, bondé, service junior, inintéressé. On se fait garrocher l’entrée tiède à peine 5 minutes après la commande, pas eu le temps de boire 2 gorgées de vin. Nourriture correcte pour une table d’hôte, bons desserts mais pas à refaire. Il y a un vrai laisser-aller, ça roule mais c’est défraîchi...

Nous sommes allé à L'auberge dans le cadre du festival Montréal à table et nous avons adoré! Malgré le fait que ce soit la soirée la plus occupée de l'année, le service et les petites attentions étaient au rendez-vous. Nous avons beaucoup aimé tous les plats que nous avons mangé, surtout l'aile de raie, qui était merveilleuse à essayer. L'ambiance est aussi à noter, cosy, feutrée, romantique. Bref, une belle découverte! Nous y retournerons ! Merci Montréal à table !

Endroit confortable et où le niveau sonore permettait d'échanger entre amis. Plusieurs erreurs de la part du serveur. Pommes de terre qui goutaient le brulé. Les avis autour de la la table se ressemblaient : 6,5 sur 10 pour la qualité de la cuisine.

Went specially for the fondue Savoyarde, they had a special including a charcuterie plateau and dessert for a total of 60$, which was a great value.
The food was good and the portions generous.
Had a lovely time with a friend for her last night in town! Service was good but it looked a little disorganized.

My wife and I just recently had dinner here this past weekend and overall it was amazing. Our server was very friendly, attentive, and was not timid in making recommendations. The restaurant was getting outfitted for their Halloween party so the ambiance was great. We had the scallops and cauliflower as an appetizer. We had the venison pie and hangar steak as our mains. All of the food had great flavors and would certainly order them again. Highly recommend.

We lucked into this restaurant on our first night in Montreal. It was a wonderful way to start the trip. It is in an ancient building right in the Vieux Quartier.

The food was average, at best. The canard/ duck in particular, was quite tough. The prices (especially the wine) were exorbitant for the quality offered. So... not a good value, not great food, expensive for nothing. The setting is wonderful, but unfortunately not so the meal.

Nous avions pourtant réservé pour 5 mais à notre arrivée la table ronde qui nous a été attribuée était pour 8! Bien trop grande table, impossible de communiquer entre nous 5! Notre arrivée n'était vraiment pas préparée malgré notre réservation plusieurs jours en avance. Le coin où nous avons mangé était beaucoup trop sombre, on a utilisé les lumières de nos téléphones pour voir ce que contenaient nos assiettes à leur arrivée. Donc au total pas une belle ambiance de repas même si le repas était bon...

Nous avons malheureusement attendu d'obtenir du sel après l'avoir demandé par 2 fois. Le serveur semblait plus préoccupé par la table à notre gauche que par la nôtre. Les phares des véhicules m'ont bcp dérangée au cours du repas... Sinon, c'est un endroit très agréable.

Hip scene. Beautifully decorated to enhance ancient stone & wood building from the 1600's in 'Old Montreal.' Fantastic cocktails & interesting small, front bar. Was not crowded as there was a huge event in Montreal both taking locals away & limiting drivers from getting there. Not touristy, kind of hidden(in plain sight.) Limited menu is only drawback; but food is delicious.

This is one of our "go to" restuarants when we are on vacation in Montreal every year. A great atmosphere, food, and wait staff. When we walked in for our reserved time, the staff politely informed us that they also had two weddings, in addition to "regular" costumers. There was no reason to be concerned, we barely heard, not less saw many of either wedding party. This restaurant knows how to handle a busy night. The menu always has something for me to eat, as a picky eater. Check out their website or go to the restaurant and see for your self...

J'ai mangé mieux pour la moitié du prix dans de nombreux restos. Toutefois, ceci étant avant tout une rencontre d'affaire, le lieu et le service offert furent totalement à la hauteur dans ce sens. Je recommande pour un repas d'affaire mais pas pour la nourriture qui devient secondaire.

On était là pour l'anniversaire d'une collègue pendant l'heure du dîner. Malgré le fait qu'ils n'y avaient pas beaucoup de personnes, nous étions la pendant 2 heures!! Service très lent .
qualité-prix du resto n'était pas la non plus.
Je prendrai peut être un café la la prochaine fois tandis qu'ils ont une belle terrasse. Mais rien de plus ...

Bon dans l'ensemble mais pas de gros Wow.
Sauf pour entrées de chou-fleur grillés
Ris de veau correct sans plus,
Pour 40$ plus de légumes d'accompagnement aurait été apprécié.
Flétan petite portion et un peu trop cuit, manque5 aussi de légumes.
Milles feuilles au citron un délice.
Pour retourner à une adresse il doit y avoir un gros Oumh!
Surtout à ce prix
Bonne continuation.

My husband was served 1/2 a Cornish hen! On his plate was a plain romaine salad (as the 'vegetable'), and mashed potato. Good thing he's on a diet.
For $39 I had Bouillabaisse which consisted of 10 mussels, 1 scallop, 1/4 cup of super tiny shrimp and a piece of cod that was the size of a large egg - good thing I had bread!
This restaurant is over-priced and I could have done better in my own kitchen. I would never go back.
