Lovely 9 pm menu. Delicious, generous portions and excellent variety. Three in the group had the bavette & fries. I had the Atlantic salmon. The soup and salad starters were excellent. So if you are looking for a place after theatre or a late evening bite while downtown we highly recommend this spot.
After looking at pictures of their brunch menu I think we’ll be back for that also!
Staff was very knowledgeable and genuinely friendly.

A bit touristy, which is fine. Priced that way too. Banking on that French experience a bit too much for an experienced Montreal patron.

I’ve eaten here before on my last visit to Montreal. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the Residence Inn Marriott Downtown and the Omni Royal hotels.

I ordered their Ballottine De Volaille - Chicken stuffed with wild mushrooms and a tarragon sauce. What they actually had was a chicken baked breast in a bearnaise mushroom sauce served upon mashed potatoes.

It was still very tasty and I did enjoy it!

The service was very attentive and non-intrusive.

I will definitely be back!

Expensive and disappointing. New Years Eve $85 price fixe would have been fine if the food had been good. The chef likes to be innovative and creative but we really just wanted delicious food. We wondered whether anyone had tasted the dishes beforehand—it seemed unlikely. I found the first appetizer—mi cuit salmon—lovely but my husband and the couple next to us refused to eat it. The red wines available by the glass (there were three) were so awful, I skipped having wine with the main course. The 2nd app w mushrooms was good. Duck ravioli was not very good, and braised endive with spoiled ham and rock hard avocado ice was a complete failure. Steak should not be prepared sous vide. It was tough and chewy. The chocolate dessert was good. Service was very good but could not possibly compensate for the disappointing food.

Came for new years, they first tried to sit us in a room in the back with zero ambiance and totally separate from the rest of the restaurant. they agreed to move us when we asked as there were multiple tables in the main room. Food was just okay, steaks were a bit tough and they forgot on of our first courses. We had a good time but probably a few too many mishaps to come back.

It was New Year's Eve, we were looking for a La Carte menu. We were never informed that there was a prix fixe menu. We found out when we arrived at the restaurant. Too much food, not that great either. Better value and food at Restaurant Europea a few nights before.

While the ambiance is very nice and the service friendly and efficient the food itself was less than memorable. Very unusual for this place since many previous meals were outstanding. The 4 of us had lamb shanks, bouillabaisse, and seafood stew. The lamb was fall off the bone cooked which is good but the flavor was not as robust as it should be. Both the seafood stew and bouillabaisse were very modest in the contents. The flavors were good buy simply not a substantial enough portion. The bouillabaisse consisted of the jus, 2 shrimps, about a dozen small bay scallops and 2 2: squares of cod. That was it! usually this dish should have at least 3 types of shell fish, 2 or 3 types of fish and small diced potatoes. Seafood stew was similar. For these reasons I give it only a fair rating.
