Accueil : je demande pour mettre les manteaux au vestiaire on me répond qu’ils n’ont pas d’hôtesse ..obligé de garder les manteaux avec nous. On avait réservé au bar, il nous assoie à une table.. finalement on a réussi à s’asseoir au bar. Je commande une bière la barmaid me dit qu’est-ce que tu veux, je lui demande ce qu’elle a .. elle fait un soupir et me nomme les sortes de bières de disponible, j’avais vraiment l’impression de la déranger. Je lui demande de nous expliquer la table d’hôte encore pire,..finalement on commande un filet mignon saignant et un entre côte médium et un risotto, je demande à Dominique (Nikkie) la barmaid des frites au lieu des patates pilée elle me répond « impossible !! on ne fait pas de substitution sur la table d’hôte ! »! ils mélangent les cuissons le filet mignon est médium et l’entrecôte saignant, je demande de le changer , c’est interminable avant d’avoir ma bouffe .. donc ma femme a terminé de manger moi je reçois mon steak, on me sert les patates pilée froide je conteste.. on s’excuse on me dit qu’ilsont un problème avec le réchaud je demande ..les patates arrive lorsque j’ai terminé de manger mon steak ! c’est la pire experience de restauration depuis longtemps et je vais au restaurant minimum 4 à 5 fois /semaine. Le maître D’hôtel viens me voir et s’excuse en me disant qu’il me paie un verre de vin, je lui explique que c’est pas mon vin qui est pas correct c’est le service et la bouffe. Après insistance, il ont crédité mon assiette.. j’aurais bien aimé la payer et avoir le plaisir de passer une belle soirée avec ma femme. une facture de $265.77
Très très décevant
Le plus décevant c’est l’attitude de Dominique la barmaid j’ai vraiment l’impression que ça lui tentait pas de nous servir .. aucun sourire, service très basique mais vu que je sais vivre j’ai quand même laissé un pourboire de 15% sur le total de la facture même si elle ne le méritait vraiment pas ! Expérience à oublier le plus rapidement possible !!

We were looking for a steakhouse without the usual "keg" atmosphere. This place was vibrant and busy and the food was great .
If you re looking for a place for a quiet meal I would look elsewhere. I noticed a few people leave due to the noise, we might have considered it but we had already ordered when the crowd set in.
Overall the experience was a good one , would go again with different expectations for conversation.

Nous y avons fêté le nouvel an:
Musique très forte trop tôt.
Service très lent et perdu malgré un menu unique et sur réservation (soit on nous oublie, soit on nous sert 2 fois le même plat à plusieurs reprises).
Une coupe de champagne pourrait être incluse pour un tel évènement à ce prix; shooter de whiskey offert pour minuit sympa mais dommage quand on aime pas et rien d'autre n'a été proposé.
Il y avait des morceaux de carapace dans le homard.
Le vestiaire obligatoire est très froid; par -30°c dehors, récupérer son manteau était douloureux.
À réessayer peut-être pour une autre occasion car le cadre est agréable.

Went for the NYE set menu with a party of 6 people. The food was banquet style to say the least, bland, quickly served and with no opportunity to cook to a patrons specifications. My entire party was significantly underwhelmed. Staff was aloof and didn't apply any personality to the special occasion. Would never recommend or come back again.

C’est la quatrième fois que nous allons à votre restaurant et comme à chaque fois nous avons adoré notre expérience. La nourriture est excellente et en quantité suffisante. Le service en est un que nous qualifions d’hors pair. Pas une seul fois nous n’avons manqué de quoi que ce soit. Les vins sont excellents et les conseils sur les vins à choisir également. Et que dire de l’ambiance avec le DJ et du restaurant lui-même. Nous retournerons assurément voir voir pour déguste à nouveau des huîtres et la morue noire qui était sublime.

Food was not good. Service was excellent and the private imported wine was delicious. But still, not enough to compensate the overcooked fish, the creamy carbonara with no taste and the too sweet salmon tartare.

What the heck happened to Mechant Boeuf??!! We are so disappointed with tonight's dinner. We have been long time fans, since Perry was at the door, Jason shucked oysters, and DJ Squeaky Clean kept the vibe. For a fairly quiet night, it took forever to eat (we arrived at 8:20 and ate our main course at 9:45). Worst of all, the ribs were cold, and the burger was nuked for not only was it dry, it was terribly hot in the middle and cold on the edges. To end the night off, our coffees were cold!!
We are so sad that a resto we really enjoyed has turned into such a disappointment.

Great assortment for family dining. Roast chicken for two was delicious and best veggie burger I’ve ever eaten. It had smoked feta and incredible flavor. Daughter said regular burger amazing too. Macaroon dessert was the best of all three ordered. Crepe was hard shell with mousse filling. Good but was expecting traditional crepe.

First went here in July and it was a totally different experience. The atmosphere was great; very busy with a DJ, great service, great cocktails, great food.
This time, despite their website advertising a DJ, there wasn't one and the place was dead. We asked about the DJ and they said they couldn't sustain it right now. Their website clearly said there was a DJ on Saturdays which fit the type of dinner out that we wanted; something lively with great food before we hit the bars. Unfortunately the atmosphere was non-existing and the servers looked annoyed to be there. I actually had to get up to go get someone to take our next drink order after ours sat empty for ten minutes. Overall I don't mind paying more for food if the vibe is outstanding as well, but spending $180 for the two of us and getting bad service in a dull place, I felt kind of ripped off. Hopefully it's just a seasonal thing and not a sign of things to come.

The food was fine, but the place was really busy during the dinner hour . Service took about two hours for two people and when we asked for the check it took about half hour to pay it. The people next to us decided not to tip their server, and they were immediately questioned by a maître d’ and made to feel embarrassed for not tipping. Tipping is optional, and they did not feel that they had good service but ended up leaving a tip because they were embarrassed into it. I’ve never seen anything like it.

2E visite à votre restaurant. 1re fois en nov 2016. Nous avions été très enchantés, de là notre désir d'y retourner cette année. Cette fois-ci nous avons été déçus. Musique très forte. Service lent et peu de visites de notre serveur. Nous avons pris le plateau de tartare en entrée: bien aimé le tartare de boeuf et de thon. Pas le saumon. Pas goûteux du tout. En somme, nous n'avons pas été aussi enchantés et nous n'y retournerons plus.

The greeting was professional and welcoming, the waiter who took the order was impeccable, the only blemish in the service was the waitress who delivered our food kept mistaking whose plate belonged to whom. The food was scrumptious. For appetizers: I had the crab accras very flavorful! My dinner companion had the chipotle Calamari tender and delicious (I was afraid the chipotle would overpower the Calamari but it didn't it was amazing!) I wouldn't hesitate to recommend either dish. I then had the beef tartar perfectly seasoned. My companion had the boeuf onglet, I found it a little too salty for my taste but it was tender. All in all great service, succulent food!

Déçue d’avoir été contacté en fin PM pour avoir une confirmation de réservation et que si je ne rappèlais pas avant 18h, ma réservation était cancellée. Nous avons descendu de Québec, 3 couples, réservation pour 10 personnes... une chance que j’ai pris mon message sur ma boîte vocale. Et lorsque j’ai rappelé pour confirmer, on m’a dit que nous n’avions que deux heures vu que c’etait achalandé. Nous n’avons pas eu de menus suffisants pour commander, nous devions se prêter 2 menus pour 10 personnes... dommage !

After reading reviews of this restaurant that was within walking distance of our hotel, we thought we would give it a try. The place had a nice vibe with a DJ playing energizing music. It happened to be ‘restaurant week’ of some sort so the menu was somewhat limited but not a problem. For $31 you could have an appetizer, entree & dessert. You could also upgrade some items for an additional charge. We chose to upgrade the appetizer but ordered the other 2 from the basic offerings. My spouse ordered the pasta carbonara. It was horrible with chunks of scrabbled eggs and 2 slabs of undercooked bacon. She told the server that it was disgusting and he apologized saying that other customers have had the same response. He went on to say that it was “special”. He did not offer anything in exchange and we didn’t ask since it took quite awhile to get our food. Also, due to the event, we were told when we got there that we could only stay for 2 hours. The steak was good even thought it was over cooked when I ordered med-rare, but tasty. When the bill came, there was a charge of $49 for the steak. We questioned it and the waiter and later the manager said that we upgraded when we absolutely did not. They wouldn’t take off the bad pasta charge nor would they adjust the cost of the steak that we did not order. We were very disappointed that we got overcharged for a something we did not order and had to pay in full for something that was horrible quality.
