    We ate outside. But our table was at the end and adjacent to an unsightly parking lot. The food and wine were delicious. After giving us dessert menus the waiter, who had been totally professional, avoided our table until I finally caught his attention to ask for the check. It was hard to understand. And spoiled a very good dinner.

    We visited the restaurant to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The service was impeccable. The maître d’hôtel was charming and very friendly. He even offered a little surprise for my kid which was truly delicious. Also, there was live music (jazz) which was very good and the noise level was acceptable. Overall, we had wonderful time.

Nous avons été charmé. Vous avez rendu notre soirée mémorable avec votre accueil original, vos blagues, votre musique et vos escargots à l'ail pas mal trop bon. Mechant bon show! Merci pour tout.

    I went to this place because of the great reviews. The greatest disappointment was the kitchen service which was totally disorganised. They were keep bringing the wrong dishes, and the main course took 45 minutes. All other tables that came after us were served and finished before we get our main course. I left before I had the chance to taste the main course. The waitress was trying to be helpful but it was not enough.

    The food was unremarkable. It wasn't bad, but it felt ho-hum. The location and ambience is excellent. The service was also excellent. Our waiter was lovely. I made a reservation and we were placed right next to the band and this made conversation nearly impossible. Luckily we had an early reservation so we had time for talking before the band started. The music was great it was just to loud as we were placed so close.

    The pictures made it look very fancy, but we turned up and it was a very fancy pub which was even better. That's probably why the calamari was very oily. My partner's salmon was made with love, my chicken was not. They handed me a big chunk of unseasoned chicken breast with soft white skin on top. Maybe this is how chicken breast is made in France? It certainly isn't in the rest of Canada
