I have been here twice now for my birthday on the recommendation of a friend. Both times I have great service and meals. Very friendly staff who were happy to speak English, or put up with my bad French. The food is flavorful and fresh and very enjoyable. I recommend the lamb dish

On our visit to Montreal, we decided to try this restaurant because of its good reviews. My duck confit and my husband's pasta were delicious, and our waitress friendly and obliging. But we had to wait at least 45 mins. for our dinner.

This was an excellent choice! The waitress provided excellent and attentive service and seemed genuinely happy to be there. The duck was tender and the steak was incredibly tasty. The prices for entrees were very reasonable making this a great value.

My wife and I shared the 'Butchers Cut' steak - it was enormous! We absolutely enjoyed it, but it was a lot of food for 2 people - probably more comfortable for 3.

We sat outside to eat, and there was some improvised live music going on in the courtyard nearby. Overall, a charming experience with good ambiance, great food, and excellent service. We would definitely dine here again.

Very good house terrine, steak tartare, foie gras & gravlox appetizers were ALL very good.
The duck leg was VERY good & crispy but a little pricy @ $24 for 1 leg & a pinch of salad.
Nice wine list. Friendly & polite servers!

The food was pretty good (warm goat cheese was fantastic) but the service was terrible -- an hour to get our salads, then another hour to get our entrees, then another 45 minutes to pay and leave -- and none of the staff was remotely apologetic about it. Outdoor seating is nice, but compared with the other restaurants nearby, this place is nothing special.

Enjoyed a fantastic meal. They also generously accommodated our youngest eater (7) and made him a pasta dish he loved. Wonderful ambiance further enhanced by being located in a pedestrian walkway. Parking is a little bit of a challenge. Can't wait to go again when we are next in Montreal.

Bistro ou la qualité des ingrédients est surprenante tout en demeurant très simples. Carte des vins tout aussi simple mais de bon goût. C'est un bistro sans prétention. For casual dining en bonne compagnie ou entre-amis.

The entire meal was just lovely, it exceeded our expectations. The restaurant was busy but the staff hustled and gave individualized attention and never rushed us. The lamb shank, roast chicken and perfect salad were all delicious. Merci!

A nice, typically French bistro. The service was prompt, efficient and courteous. the food was ok, not great but acceptable (i.e., the lobster bisque was tasty, but tepid). Overall, it satisfied my desires but didn't wow me.

Meal was good! Ate duck confit and my friend had cheese capelleti. Both well done but portions were WAY TOO SMALL! I was hungry after the meal was over, and ended up dipping the complimentary bread (which was served late) in my friend's pasta sauce... snacked more at home.

We chose this place because they were offering a Thanksgiving dinner. The food was nicely prepared and very tasty. My only disappointment was that we were seated at 4 very small round tables, shoved together, which was a little uncomfortable.

The extensive road construction seriously detracted from the experience but obviously I can't blame this on the restaurant. But I think during this construction period they should update their website to highlight the fact that you can park in the unpaved street area of Prince Arthur. It took almost 15 minutes to find a parking spot.

Nous y sommes allés plusieurs fois et mes enfants nous demandent d'y retourner. Nous habitons à Laval; juste pour vous dire qu'on fait vraiment un détour! Cuisine excellente (meilleur tartares), accueil sans pareil. Il y a aussi la terrasse en été et la rue piétonnière qui se fait toute belle présentement. Mes enfants ont eu un dessert flambé pour leur anniversaire. Tenu par des gens passionnés. Allez-y sans hésiter!

The charcuterie tray had many wonderful meats, cheeses & pate.
Onion soup had a wonderful flavor. If you are a broth lover, I would recommend asking them to go lighter on the bread in the soup ramekins. Good Malbec. My friend had their Leek soup & Escargot meal which she thought was very good. We loved the warm crispy bread & butter for the table.
