Les menus brunch des autres restaurants participants comprennent 3 services. Avantl le 17 janvier, j'ai remarqué que vous offres le Mimosa à volonté. C'est la raison que j'ai choisi votre restaurant.

Sur place, j'ai été surprise que le drink est enlevé du menu Happy gourmand et en plus, il n'y a pas des danois.

J'apprécierai que les choix des viennoiseries soient plus attirantes ou remplacées par d'autres choses.

It's a must during Happening Gourmand! The menu options are amazing and at a great price! Delicious food with great service. If you're lucky, you'll get served by Alex. He gives great meal options with an awesome attitude! Thanks! :)

C'était bon mais je trouve que le prix était légèrement trop élevé. J'y retournerai quand même car le service est excellent et l'endroit très agréable. J'ai bien aimé le tartare de boeuf.

This place’s quality has been downgraded since last year. Chefs and staffs mustve been changed. Beef was dry and over cooked with ‘medium rare’. What if we order ‘well done’. Small IPA I asked ended up being red ale or something and size was wrong. A lot of mistakes we observed.

We were there for brunch New Year's Day. Holiday menu was amazing, loved the donut holes and their takes on mimosas were creative and very good.

The food was terrible and over priced. When we arrived there was a confusion with our tables and the manager was so rude. It was New Year’s Eve and they were in complete chaos. Dis organized and $99 a person even for 10yr old kids. Never again!

Service was poor as the the restaurant was clearly understaffed; drink order was not taken, food took 20 minutes too long to come out, and staff seemed generally overwhelmed and hurried with waiters and hosts running to bus orders and move tables. The food overall was quite good, including vegan substitutions to the veggie burger. We would recommend the steak as both diners who had it said it was quite good! However the Mac and cheese had undercooked noodles and the hot items were more lukewarm than hot as a result of the delay in service.

Musique beaucoup trop forte, ça n’est ni un bar ni un pub, donc, pour un souper de cette qualité et à ce prix (c’est pas donné quand-même) il serait agréable d’en profiter en s’entendant parler plutôt que d’être agressés par une musique qui ne convient pas à l’endroit.

What a delightful experience! We had a quiet table for two by the window. The DJ kept the atmosphere fun without overpowering conversation. The food and drink came in good time and were ALL exquisite. The poutine appetizer . . . the hanger steak . . . the chive risotto . . . We enjoyed all of it! Service was attentive, helpful, prompt, and welcoming. I heartily recommend Méchant Boeuf!

Very poor service
Waited 20 mins just for the server to give us some water and take our drinks order, and they only came after we flagged them down.
Then it took another 1.5 hours for our food to be served, in that time, the server never updated us on the status of our food or refilled our glasses

Even though I applaud the host for resolving the problem, they moved my reservation 1 hour and did not let me know or ask me about it. Also the time between the finish first course and the second course was 45 minutes.

We were limited to two hours, but the desert took almost 1 hour to be served.
Noise level was particularly high.
Spacing between tables is not ideal.
The waiter was really very good.

Mes étoiles sont cotées simplement à cause de l’indigestion alimentaire que j’ai eu après avoir manger un steak au Mechant Bœuf l’avant veille de noël.

La sangria était bonne
Le pain était sec et pas servi chaud, c’est dommage
Les calmars étaient bon.
Puis est arriver mon onglet médium saignant et le steak frite de mon amie.
Les patates pilées, bien que j’adore le sel, étaient trop salées. De même pour les frites.

Le chimichurri, le beurre d’hôtel et les petites fèves verte étaient délicieux!
Le steak de 8oz était froid et la chair semblait bleu. J’ai spécifié que c’était froid et ils ont tout de suite enlever le repas de ma facture. Après ce geste, que peut de restaurateur prenne le temps de faire, les autres détails n’aurait qu’été des détails.

Puis j’ai terminer par un dessert. La tartelette au chocolat et caramel avec pacane et sorbet à la poire. Pour moi ce dessert n’était pas bien balancé. Le caramel aurait dut être salé. Mais c’est une question de goût.

Je suis arrivée chez moi et quelques heures plus tard je me suis réveiller avec des tremblements et des sueur froide, ainsi qu’un immense mal de ventre.

Il s’est passer quelque chose avec le steak. Soit il n’étais pas frais soit il n’était pas assez cuit...mais j’ai été malade toute l’avant veille de noël.

Merci tout de même à l’équipe de service pour les attentions particulières.

The food at this restaurant is excellent, and they also have great cocktails. While our server was very friendly, he became slower to arrive as our meal went on, and we ended up getting assistance from other servers for some of our requests because ours did not seem to be around until it was time to pay. The music was originally very nice, but they had a DJ start up about halfway through our meal and from then on it was more like "club" music and just didn't fit the mood. I didn't have any of those issues the first time I was here though. Overall, a great place to get a steak.

Very pleasant experience. The meat and fish were delicious and the vegetables accompagning them original. The only thing I see which could have been better is my main meal: it came lukewarm so I had to hurry eating it.

Our family felt so comfortable! Not knowing what to expect we were worried the elevated menu and chic environment would be too stuffy for our teenage kids but it wasn’t at all! Alex was a perfect server very accommodating to speak English and entertaining! He accommodated every request and made our experience a ten! Best meat we’ve ever eaten!

Wonderful evening starting with the 5 @ 7, $1 oysters that were huge and succulent. Pair that with a delicious main course, the food was really prepared perfectly and mix that together with ouststanding service from our professional server Samantha that really made the whole experience so enjoyable.

Nous avons réservé une table durant MTL à Table le dimanche 10 novembre. Arrivé à l'accueil, deux femmes étaient derrière nous mais la jeune femme à l'accueil a trouvé plus logique de s'adresser à ces dernières alors que nous étions DEVANT elles. Nous avons tenté de lui faire signe pour lui faire comprendre que nous étions là et surtout devant elles mais elle n'a pas réagit comme si nous étions in-vi-si-bles. Au final, très irrités nous avons fait savoir notre agacement et la jeune fille nous a simplement dit "oh je pensais que vous étiez ensemble". Très déçus de cet accueil où certains clients sont complétement ignorés, dommage car le repas était bon dans l'ensemble.
