Very good service. No rush in speed, it was enjoyable to spend an evening with friends with no pressure of leaving as soon as dinner was over.

Excellent place for a meet lover!

Cinq étoiles pour la nourriture et le service. Cependant 1 étoile pour le confort de la place assise. On était placé à côté du bar. L'endroit était le plus exigu que je n'ai jamais vu pour un resto. Je sais qu'il n'y a plus de distanciation mais quand même. Si je tournais la tête à gauche je faisais face aux fesses des personnes assises au bar. Si je tourne la tête à droite, c'est le plat de la femme assise à ma droite. À chaque fois qu'un serveur passait entre le bar et notre table, on avait les fesses presque dans nos plats. Vu l'espace, on ne devrait pas avoir plus d'une table entre ceux qui sont sur les banquettes et le bar. C'est tellement exigu que je ne pense pas que ça soit sécuritaire en cas d'évacuation. C'était trop gênant et inconfortable.

Bonjour John, Merci pour vos commentaires. C'est désolant de voir 1 étoile avec la mention que la nourriture et le service étaient excellents. Je suis désolée que vous vous ayez senti pris entre 2 personnes. Nous nous assurons toujours d'être très sécuritaires et respectons les règles à la lettre tant qu'à la capacité de gens que nous pouvons accepter dans notre restaurant.

Food was great but service was a little bit mixed, we put it down to either our server being new or the restaurant ramping back up after covid. We would still go again but they certainly need to be more on their service game.

I ate here two nights in a row during a visit to Montreal. Food was superb and service warm and expert.
Nicolas the first night was so helpful and patient with our group of five people, giving us perfect advice on our potential orders.
And Stéphanie the second night was charming and attentive to the two of us, indulging amy stupid jokes whenever she came to the table with her entrancing smiles.
Just a delight, both nights.

The service was good, but the place itself was a bit too loud.
We had a Cod Fillet and a Beef Tartar. The fish was good, but the Beef Tartar felt like only onions and mayo was there.
Maybe we did’t have the best dishes of the restaurant, but our experience wasn’t the best one

Terrible waitering service! It seemed like I WAS bothering the waiter during his shift. He was more interested serving the table of four behind me, and the others around my table. Plus there was a price mistake for the wine when I received the bill. Two glasses of 8oz, I was charged as if I bought a 60$ bottle. The waiter said there was a price mistake on the menu. --That's not my fault, nor my problem-- Therefore, he said he did ME a favor and charged only one glass of wine. But still explained to me that it was my fault anyway for the "supposed" mix up. Since I'm a gentlemen, not wanting to start stories, I still gave him a 15% tip. Definitely NOT RETURNING to this resto for the price I paid. Total rip off !!!!!

Bad service- Waitress messed up our order and tried to charge us for the wrong steak. She argued with me and told me what I ate, despite it being not true, which is bizarre. The waitress also had a bad attitude.

The chef was inconsistent with the cook of the steaks. We made a request that one of the steaks be cooked well done for religious reasons, but the chef was unable to prepare a steak beyond a medium cook. Steaks were seasoned well and the sides were quite good, especially the mashed potatoes. Better communication would yield a review of 4 stars, but I can’t rate it that because of the stubbornness and confusion created by the chef and waitress.

Did not have a good experience overall.

Cosy but intimate ambience. We had a very attentive and knowledgeable server, and the few servers were kept very busy throughout the night, so service was slower than expected. The food was excellent, well prepared and seasoned, although it took longer than expected to arrive at the table. It was a Sunday night before Thanksgiving, and we took that as a given it would be slower than usual. Restaurant is in a very chic spot in Old Montreal, and we highly recommend trying the varied and excellent menu.

La serveuse était super gentille, même si parfois ça prendrait du temps et il fallait parfois répéter. L’ambiance était bonne, mais c’était assez tôt. Mais mon tartare n’avait aucun goût. Le surlonge de bœuf avait un goût de brûlé tant la version médium-saignante comme la version bien cuite (plutôt bien brûlée!). La truite arc-en-ciel aurait pu aussi bien être un poulet puisqu’elle n’avait aucun goût. La salade grecque d’entrée et le hamburger étaient le seuls ok. Le gâteau au chocolat de dessert était bon, même si trop riche. Avez le prix si salé mais pas la nourriture, ce n’est pas mon choix pour le prochain repas, c’est sur.
