Food and ambiance were great. Only downside is that we saw a mouse roaming around our table…

My husband and I went for his birthday and Christmas dinner , and the service, food and ambience were well taken care of were amazing. I appreciate the waiter adjusting the alcohol level for the zen drink due to my food sensitivities. The beef cheek and steak, duck tartaki and desserts were well paired, with great texture and taste all for a reasonable price. Plexi glass were also between all tables. Will come again and thank you for making our night!

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.

Not my favorite. mediocre at best. Very bright in there for dinner. My salad was one of the saddest dry thrown together meals I’ve had in a long time. I do better at home! Service wasn’t the best either. Waiter didn’t check in enough. I won’t ever be back. Drink were bad too.

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.

L'entrée et le boeuf excellent mais pour ce qui est des frites maison non 1 ces n'est pas des faites maison et 2 c'est garoché dans l'assiette. Seulement 2 choix possibles pour accompagnement aussi. Quand tu paie 52$ pour un steak tu t'attends à pas mal plus dsl
