The cooking on the steak was not as requested and the quality of the meat wasn’t good. The oysters were very good and so was the desert. Overall not worth $200

Vraiment mauvaise expérience le service est complètement désorganisé pour choisir du vin ils nous ont fait venir 3 personnes différentes. Ils n’avaient pas les pièces de viandes présentées au menu… l’entrée a partagée était mauvaise et toute petite … une entrée de betterave sans vinaigrette… j’ai demandé un steak saignant on me la apporter bleu et froid… bref juste n’allez pas la … attrape touriste. Nous avons été malade le lendemain.

You need to go there and eat the crispy shrimp with the jalapeno pineapple sauce. It was probably one of the best shrimp appetizers i've ever had thus far.

I was recommended the hamburger, but I could only take two bites. It was average, but my guests chicken and grilled veggies made up for it. Kicking myself for not getting the steak, but now I know!
Our server was attentive.

The ambiance here out on the street just doesn't work. It was kind of cramped and gave me a bit of anxiety. I felt like I couldn't enjoy myself without overhearing other people's conversations or other people overhearing my own. Mainly went to speak about work but felt like we couldn't.
The mango daiquiri is good. I would come back again during the day just for the drink and th shrimp.. a pre-old port exploration snack!
They were out of a few of things on the menu but also completely forgivable as it's their first week open. I can't wait until indoor opens and I can fully enjoy the Maggie Oakes vibe properly.

Hi Stephie, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, it is much appreciated! There were a lot of people visiting the Old Montreal area on the first week that restaurants reopened, which explains the high volume on our terrace! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal and that you had a great time at our establishment regardless! We hope to see you again soon!

First lunch date post lockdown, and didn't disappoint! Food, cocktails and ambiance were on point! Terrasse is fully covered from the sun which is nice. All day brunch with a cocktail? Yes please! Definitely need a reservation ahead of time, terrasse was full all afternoon. I highly recommend this place! I can't wait to go back!

Very polite and prompt service but quality of food isn't as nice as the presentation.
Prices are high which is standard for old port (tourist area) so unsurprising, but table d'hote option is affordable and fair.
Overall good experience and the environment, ambience and service made it worthwhile.

I find it disappointing that the fries, the mayonnaise and the ketchup were not home made for this type of restaurant

Soup of the day was very good and savoury

You must make a reservation on line for every person at your table, even when there are plenty of tables available. I guess that this must be to allow contact tracing in the event of a Covid outbreak.

Il font leur possible, retour après une longue fermeture. Très belle terrasse dans un endroit agréable a y être. Steak de 7oz a $28 gout et mâche ordinaire pour un endroit qui a un immense display de viande en vitrine a l'intérieur, ma femme salade de kinoa très belle présentation mais goute rien...
Nous y retournerons essayer le menue du soir, les assiettes brunch des tables voisines avait l'air bonnes....
