    Amazing food and service. I don’t know why they think they need the musician. He’s not great and his “noise” raised the noise level greatly as everyone seemed to ignore him and just raise their speaking voices.

    Excellent service and good music. However, the food did not match the price we paid. We ordered steaks and the plates came almost empty. The steak were not worth their price, in size nor taste. My friends ordered hamburgers which were nothing special than hamburgers from any other fast food joints.

    So good! We were looking for a fun place to go for dinner with music and this hit all the right notes. We were given a fantastic table right next to the musicians (request an upstairs table), our server was top notch with great suggestions for wine and food. We had escargot, both the salmon and beef tartare, and the lamb chops. All were spectacular. Can’t wait to go back next time I’m in Montreal.

    L’hôtel nous a conseillé ce restaurant pour le Live Music ( jazz) et la qualité des plats. Grosse déception quand nous avons appris sur place que le live music n’était accessible qu’au 2ème Etage Donc nous avons dîné au réa de chaussée où il n’y avais r aucune ambiance Les plats sont très chers même si la viande était bonne Les desserts sont moyens sauf le brownie C’est un bistrot donc pas très cosy ni confortable Les vitres sur rue pourraient être nettoyées

    Our server was very nice, but the food was below average. The steak was drenched in bad gravy, and the fries tasted like McCain fries from the supermarket. The rigatoni was very dry, no sauce in site. The drinks were great though.

    Amazing experience! We had the best seat in the house - front and centre to the live musician. The music was great and provided a nice ambience. Our server was very friendly and attentive, and provided helpful recommendations. Our food was delicious and a great value. As our server pointed out, you can tell this restaurant is good when you see numerous locals in Old Port to eat there. We will be back!

    Our server was very nice and since it was our first time eating there she really helped us with the menu and everything. The food was delicious, I really recommend the oignon soup. The food didn’t take too long after ordering and the ambiance was really nice. There was a live singer and it really made our date night enjoyable. Would eat there again.
