****The oysters are $1 all night on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and from 5 to 7pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays
(with the purchase of a cocktail per dozen oysters.)
We were pleasantly greeted upon our arrival. We had made a reservation for 4 for 6pm, and we were seated immediately. The restaurant was already fairly busy, and we were informed that there was another reservation for our table at 8:30. No problem since we had other plans at 8pm.
The restaurant itself is fairly narrow, with elevated tables up front, bench and chair seating along the wall toward the middle of the restaurant where it tapers off to a hallway that leads to the restrooms.
The restaurant is fairly dark, irregardless of the front and side windows, and the kitchen/bar are mostly visible from the dining area. The ventilation didn’t seem optimal, and it was fairly warm in the restaurant.
Our waitress, Cléa (I hope I spelled that correctly) was lovely, informative, and helpful. The menu isn’t huge, but we hungry, and tapas being what it is (small morsels/servings of food), we ordered 10 different dishes.
The tuna tartare was excellent. The summer salad was light and fresh with a mildly tart dressing. The beef Carpaccio was slightly salty but very tasty. The salt and pepper shrimp were delicious, perhaps a few too many green onions for my taste, and I kept waiting for a hint of spice to kick in. The fried chicken sliders were excellent.
[We could have used some fresh plates around now, but the food was so good it didn’t really matter.]
The scallops were amazing, perfectly seared, while the fennel salad lacked something...maybe just a touch of salt to make the taste pop. The Brussels sprouts were under cooked, bitter, overcomplicated flavor-wise, and neither the cheese nor the balsamic added positively to the dish. For a family that loves Brussels sprouts, we left the plate untouched. The tuna tacos and nacho fries were ok. The angus steak was excellent.
They graciously removed the sprouts from the bill without being asked.
By 7:30 they were so busy that the bar, booths, tables and standing areas were packed.
Would love to go back again!
First time trying this restaurant. Restaurant is narrow, dark and cozy. Tables are close to each other and could be in the way at times. The menu is creative, everything on the menu looks tasty to try. We shared 6 plates and we were pleased with Tina tartare, salt & pepper shrimps, Brussels sprouts and nacho fries. The only drawback is the service and greeting which I have to say is a must in restauration these days. It's important to greet your guests and make sure you keep a contact with them throughout the evening and not the guest having having to look after the waiter to order.
Ambience is nice and friendly, waiters are very attentive to details and food is excellent!
Wonderful little spot to catch a bite and have a drink or two. Food is delicious. Service is good. Noise level is a bit high.
Everything was fantastic. Say at the bar and met one of the restaurant owners. Amazing food, excellent service and incredible staff.
What an absolutely fantastic food experience! Well thought out menu great fresh ingredients and les Garçon were spot on for service. Wine pairing for what we had was good. So I rate it 4.8 out of 5 the only draw back was the noise, however if it was a 5-7 the noise would be perfect.
GREAT PLACE ! GREAT FOOD! GREAT PEOPLE
Awesome restaurant, I couldn’t decide what to eat, everything seemed (and definitely is!) so delicious!
If the music was more balanced and not as loud, it would be a perfect restaurant!
great food, tapas style comfort food. and really good service. good neighborhood vibe.
I invited 3 friends who have never been before, assuring them it was an amazing restaurant. Reservation was at 5:30 on a Tuesday night, we were the first table in the restaurant. The kitchen was very slow at making our food. We were there for 2 hours and still hadn't received all of our dishes. We were late for a concert that started at 7:30 (I figured 2 hours would be enough time for 4 people to eat). In the end we cancelled the dishes that hadn't arrived yet and left hungry. The food is very good but you guys gotta do something about the speed of service.
Fun, casual place. Great cocktails that taste like they should, as described on the menu, not all sweet. Menu has a wide variety of small, shareable items. Waiter took the time to explain and made some great suggestions. Obviously overhead us talking about the deserts and brought them before we ordered! Great night and good value, and friendly staff
Date night with my wife. We live in the neighbourhood and there’s tons of great places to eat around here. This one is different. Has the vibe of a gastro pub and the food is dynamite. Will definitely go again.
The staff was incredibly kind! The cocktails were great. The food was incredible. I could not recommend the tuna tartare and the salmon highly enough. They were exceptional.
For a quiet night, service was not up to par. Food is okay at best. Overpriced for what it is. The only great thing about this restaurant is the wine list
Great food, tapas style. Except the food came out really slowly... preferably with tapas style you’d like as many dishes at once. We were served one dish after another.
Quality food, portions were ok.
Service was good and very friendly.
The only bug was we had to ask for bread.
Expérience gastronomique remarquable.
Loved it! Will eat here more often! Booking right now for next weekend !
La seule chose qui me plaisait moins... la musique qui était plus rock
I had a great experience, from the food to the service. We ordered 6 different plates and they were all delicious. The ambiance was great although the table we were seated on was kinda in the way. Also, it was very cold in the restaurant. Other than that I would recommend this spot to others.
Nous sommes accueillis par le tableau de OYSTERS à 1$, inacceptable de ne pas maintenir le tableau en français.
La nourriture est excellente, quoi que le menu est le même depuis le début.
Les tables le long du mur sont très inconfortables, à cause du banc droit côté de la banquette.
Si on prend plusieurs Tapas, malheureusement nous prenons des différents, alors on s'est regardés manger à tour de rôle durant tout le repas, car ils sont incapables de nous les apporter deux par deux, en même temps, chacun un disons. Semble impossible.
A cause surtout du service non coordonné, nous n'y retournerons pas.
Le prix est trop élevé pour la qualité de la nourriture. Je service laisse à désirer
Très bonne cuisine. plats savoureux. Excellents cocktails.
Par contre, les plats sont arrivés au compte-goutte, ce qui n'a pas été très agréable dans la dégustation des plats au format tapas... et un plat a même été oublié. On l'a fait remarqué au serveur et passé au dessert mais on a pas eu d'excuse pour ça.
C'est domage, avec un service plus attentif ce restaurant pourrait vraiment se démarquer.
The food was amazing! The service was very friendly and the staff made great recommandations. However, the service was slow. Of you're not in a hurry, it's a great place for a shared meal!
les portions sont JUSTES. Je suis sortie avec une facture de 200$ ( 2 pers.+1 bout. vin) - j'avais encore faim!! Et il nous a pas indiqué que nous avions que 2h30 pour manger car la table était réservée à 21h30! On n'était pas trop content!!!
Nice discovery. Great tapas. Wonderful upbeat atmosphere.
delicious food, good music, very nice place to go for a date
un peu trop bruyant, mais c'était un vendredi je n'y étais jamais allée cette journée.
service à améliroer: nous avions commandé des tacos de chou-fleur, mais comme nous avions déjà terminé de manger, nous avons dit au service que nous annulions ce plat. de plus, nous avions nos hamburgers poulet, nous avons dû demander pour la frite, si non, je crois que nous l'aurions mangé seule sans autre plats.
Great tapas style plates to share, good vibe and great staff
Love the food, the oyster special is a great deal if you’re hqving cocktails with friends! Will be back for more
Très bonnes tapas, service un peu lent. Ambiance agréable et cocktails délicieux.
Awesome as always. Our neighbourhood “go to” place!
a great discovery. excellent. service courtois , professionnel et très humble alors que la table et ses tapas sont un vrai festin. les tapas sont très originaux (ex. tacos de tataki, et autres mélanges de cultures) les ingrédients frais et goûteux (huître, surlonge newyork, thon etc), la présentation classe sans fioriture. le tout dans un cadre très urbain. bon succès et longue vie!!!!
Service attentionné et sympathique. Généreux tapas préparés avec soin et avec des ingrédients du marché. Carte de vins très honnête. Délicieux desserts servis "à la tapas".
Everything was perfect. Will definitely recommend the place and go back.
Tapas meals that are varied and great for sharing. Never disappoints. If we lived in the neighborhood we’d be there every week.
Loved the food, the drinks and the service. We sat at the bar and had great recommendation from the staff. We enjoyed every drink and meal 💕 will definitely be back !
Great food and ambiance!
Beautiful small resto. Service was great. Food was incredible! All 6 of 6 tapas were incredible. It was hard to choose what to get. Will definitely be going back!
the food is always good! Friendly place we go twice a month if not more ! tapas style the way i love it
