Pour un bistrot parisien, vous pourriez faire un effort pour nous écrire en français...
Très décue de ma salade niçoise; présentation peu appétissante avec le thon blanc mis sur le dessus d'une salade peu relevée et trop froide. Je m'attendais à bien plus d'un endroit comme le vôtre. Mes amies ont pris un plat d'oeufs pochés avec saumon fumé qui me semblait bien plus appétissant.

Responded on September 15, 2020

Chère MaryseC, Nous sommes déçus que votre visite n'ait pas été une réussite. C'est triste d'entendre que la salade niçoise n'a pas été à la hauteur, surtout parce qu'on prend le soin de préparer le thon confit chez nous. Je transmets vos commentaires à la cuisine. Vous avez raison de pointer la température. Si la salade est trop froide, le goût n'est pas le même. Pouvez-vous m'indiquer sur quelle plateforme vous avez reçu un message en anglais ? Merci!

The is the only place I know in Montreal where you can enjoy the traditional French "plateau de fruits de mer" made of oysters, mussels, shrimps and lobster. Always good and fairly priced. We had an excellent place inside near the open windows so we had a fair amount of breeze without the noise on the terrasse (there is a fair amount of it, the restaurant being located at the corner of Drummond and De Maisonneuve).

Dear Valued Guest, We thank you for your compliments, but you had us concerned about your stomach pain. Would you be able to message us and let us know what you had for brunch, including drinks, and when you visited? Sometimes (not often), we have gargantuan brunches here and, afterwards, we need to climb Mt. Royal to burn them off! But we'd like to find out if it was something you ate that caused the discomfort.

Dear Valued Guest, You have a sharp eye! I wish we had a contest. The crystal doorknobs are a leftover from our pre-Covid restaurant. The little virus caught us at the beginning of renovations. Some parts were late or never delivered, and the doorknobs were never changed. Now, they are a quirky feature until we replace them. Thank you kindly for your 5-star recommendation!
