J'ai pris le mélange boeuf et homard, la viande etait bonne malheureusement le homard etait certainement congelé avant la cuisson, tres fade et dur. Allez y pour la viande. Il y avait un dj sur place le son etait légèrement trop fort on ne s'entendait pas parler.

This was a terrible experience. I walked out after the appetizer as we were seated in the middle of a dance floor with drunk people bumping into us and servers spilling food twice. It was too loud to order. Really, the whole thing is a joke.

I’ve been here several times on visits to Montreal in recent years. It’s gone straight down hill.

The food was worth it on the last visits, but now the management is incompetent and the hostess was downright rude. She tried at first to seat us in a corner table that had less than 6 inches to squeeze between our table and the chairs of the table next to us. We are thin, but the other guests (not their fault) were not. The surely hostess scolded us to not get to close to the other table as they were eating. Were we supposed to levitate into our seats? Come on.

Not a good atmosphere or experience unless you are looking for dinner at a Las Vegas-style club with drunk bachelorette parties. Thump, thump, thump. Good luck dodging the trays of shots.

Never again. Modavie down the street took us without a reservation and the experience there worked out marvelously—salvaging our dinner plans. Thank god!

Nous avons bien aimé la nourriture, c'était chaud et goûteux, par contre, nous avons trouvé que les portions du repas principal étaient petites...3 asperges et une cuillière à soupe de patate pilées seulement dans l'assiette, c'est trop peu... Par rapport au service, autant ça été plutôt long d'avoir nos bières et drinks au départ que par la suite, le service fût beaucoup trop rapide. J'avais toujours l'assiette vide de mon entrée devant moi, que le serveur arrivait avec nos repas principaux! De plus, après le repas principal on a senti que le serveur était pressé que l'on parte. On voulait attendre un peu pour le dessert et il disait ''ok, je vais revenir dans 2 minutes'', nous lui avons répondu de revenir dans 15-20 minutes plutôt et là il regardait la porte d'entrée pour voir s'il y avait des gens qui attendaient... On n'a pas trop apprécié, disons...sûrtout qu'on nous avait avisé la veille par téléphone que nous avions jusqu'à 20h30 pour notre repas...

Donc voilà, nous avons essayé et il est très peu probable que nous y retournons, question de rapport qualité-prix et service...

Nous sommes allées mon amie et moi pour le MTL à Table. Le serveur n'était pas souriant ni engageant et ça paraissait qu'il voulait vite faire la rotation des tables et nous voir partir (sans être impoli toutefois). Bien que nous ayons été avisées qu'il y aurait une rotation de service aux 2 heures pour le MTL à table, après 1h, nous étions déjà sorties du restaurant. J’ai aimé mangé au Méchant bœuf dans le passé, mais cette fois-ci, j'ai trouvé que c’était un désastre. La soupe à l'oignon avait plus de fromage que de bouillon ? (je ne pensais jamais me plaindre d'un trop plein de fromage de ma vie, car j'adore ça). Le risotto était trop liquide et mal assaisonné (surtout les Edamame et les champignons ne goutaient rien). un restaurant n'est-il pas supposé choisir un plat signature qu'il maîtrise pour le MTL à table? Mon amie a pris le bœuf, qui était très bon; par contre, la purée de pommes de terre était froide... J'ai trouvé les desserts ordinaires alors que d'habitude c'est mon restaurant préféré pour les desserts dans le vieux Montréal (Des Churros roulés dans un kilo de sucre, sérieusement?). La seule chose que j'ai aimé c'était les huîtres et mon cocktail, qui était délicieux (Daiquiri Autentico) Bref, je n’ai pas apprécié l’expérience. En plus c’était mon anniversaire. ..

We had a nice meal but the menu seemed limited - maybe due to Restaurant week? - it was very noisy and the music overpowered our ability to have a conversation.

We went for the MTL a table festival and the Jerky appetizer was barely edible. For the main, the risotto lacked general flavour and was just generally sub-par. Finally, the dessert was churros and they were served with burned caramel which made the dish again, disappointing . The ambiance was pretty happening and the location is good but I was incredibly disappointed in the food.

The staff is very accommodating and we stayed 40mins passed the closing time and were never pressured to leave. The food was good but nothing outstanding. My steak was well cooked but the flavours weren’t fully there, especially in the chichimuri. The venue is nice with deemed lighting, great music in the perfect volume. The place is great to accommodate a group. I would go back for a laid back good dining after a night at the museum.

We went here because our airBnB host suggested it. She said the braised beef poutine was to die for. I’ve never had poutine before, so I can comfortably say it’s the best I’ve ever had, but overall I didn’t think it was all that special. It came in a small bowl, I expected it to be a plate sized dish. We got calamari as well and it was very rubbery, very hard to chew. I would not recommend that to anyone. My wife got the short ribs and they were excellent. The desert was fantastic, I wanted to buy the vanilla wafers just to take home but didn’t. The wine was overpriced, 18cad for a large glass of wine when we pay about that for the entire bottle, but it was an anniversary so whatever. Our server, Alex, was excellent, very personable, kind, and responsive.

Le serveur ne prenait pas les commandes de tous les clients de la table en même temps. Commandé 2 fois le même cocktail mais le deuxième n’avait pas les mêmes ingrédients. Le pieces de viande n’ont pas de prix et s’avere Extrêmement chères. Le volume de la musique beaucoup trop fort pour discuter. Facture très chère au final.
