Excellent food, great service. We enjoyed the music, and it was not at all too loud despite being seated fairly close to the performer.

Very nice place to eat while in Montreal.
Casual dress, great service, wonderful Québécois cuisine priced reasonably. Live jazz and the vibe of old Montréal enhances the ambience.

Un service 6 étoiles pour cette soirée magique. Toute l'équipe du gérant à notre serveur c'était donné le mot pour nous offrir un service exceptionnel. En plus nous avons eu droit à des mets généreux avec beaucoup de saveur. Sans oublier le trio de bluesman qui a su bien accompagné cette soirée. Une note parfaite.

Food was a little better than mediocre but nice ambiance and friendly wait staff. Live music was fun and wasn’t too loud in the main dining room (not the same room with musician).

A very inviting rustic environment. Good prix fixe Valentine's Day menu. Our server was very friendly. Not sure why we were offered a table without a view and against a wall in a wide open restaurant at 6 pm. We asked for an alternate table, and got a slightly better one.

The only complaint was my wife’s duck was way over done. If she would have said something to me, I would have sent it back. Service was excellent!

Food is just adequate. There is much better available in Old Montreal. Service and ambience made up for a lacklustre meal.

Nice to hear live music, meh food. Huge pet peeve of mine--don't call something "risotto" if it is just plain cooked rice with some vegetables. Risotto is a specific recipe.

Nothing else was special on the menu, and the chocolate dessert was undercooked. For best dining in Montreal, it's probably best to avoid the Old Town area.

Music was too loud on the second floor. Had to yell accross the table, while the live preformer was on. But other than that a wonderful evening out, food and service were excellent.

Allées entre amies dans le cadre du Happening Gourmand, la table d'hôte était très abordable et les portions généreuses pour l'occasion! Le confit de canard sur risotto était excellent!
La musique live était très bonne, mais le volume un peu trop fort pour bien s'entendre parler.

TRES MAUVAISE EXPERIENCE!!
Appeine arrivé, la sois disant "hotesse" à l'entrée, nous reserve un accueil glaciale. Donc, je lui dit que nous avons une réservation, puis, elle nous dirige vers des tables hautes.. d'un air surpris, je lui dit que lors de la reservation j'avais mentionné table régulière! Elle me dit d'un air arrogant et nerveux : bah okeyy suivait moi, meme si chez moi cest mentionné table haute! ( bien apres je saurais que la mention table haute ou table régulière ne saffiche pas dans leurs système, et qu'elle me mentais alors!) Elle nous dirige vers un coins isolé, à l'écart du restaurant.. je lui dit encore gentillement si elle pouvais nous donner une place plus agréable, sachant javais bien mentionné que cetais pour un anniversaire ! Puis elle me répond d'une façon encore plus agressive que javais mentionné dans la reservation en ligne que je voulais une place calme, ce qui est complètement faux!! Je lui demande si ca la derange autant de me donner une place a mon goût? puis elle monte sur ses grands chevaux, en me parlant tres mal, et en me sortant encore comme quoi j'avais mentionné en ligne que je voulais une place calme, ce qui est complètement faux!! Breff je lui ai bien fait comprendre que cetais pas une façon de parler aux clients!! Jai eu la place que je voulais mais jetais pas d'humeur toute la soirée ! Un accueil pourri..
