This is our 3rd time at the restaurant. We have dinner here every time we are in Montreal...it’s on the top of our list of places to eat. The table side Caesar Salad is top notch! The wine list is extensive and they have some great labels and vintages listed. My filet was cooked to perfection and the garlic mashed potatoes are a must. The pickles and coleslaw on the table are the best. The dining room is beautiful, low lights and very quiet. Can’t say enough great things about this place.

Je recommande la salade cesar pour 2, le rôti de côte au jus avec la sauce au poivre flambé signature avec les crêpes Suzette l’in Des desserts signature. Carte des vins impressionnante et sans parler du fameux cigare lounge. Superbe expérience et excellent travail de notre serveur Silvain

J’ai pris l’assiette de pétoncles et j’ai mentionné au serveur que je suis allergique au crevettes et dans la sauce il y avait une écaille de crevettes, j’ai averti le serveur et il m’a dit que c’est sûrement à la même station.... Entk pas fort.... ça m’a coupé l’appétit

great food, However, I was very offended that the manager asked me to leave to make space for other clients.

I have been going to this restaurant for a very long time, it's the first time that it happens to me.

The order for one in our group was incorrect, and most of us were almost finished our dinner when the server brought out his meal. No alternative speedier options recommended, and no costs reduced on the bill for the inconvenience.

On top of that:
1. service was extremely slow, and given the amount of staff there shouldn't have been an issue
2. server did not listen to us (we mentioned it was our friend's birthday, and asked if he could get a slice of cake for it, but the cake never came)
3. Many of our steaks were dry and not cooked to what was specified

For a restaurant with a sticker tag this high, it was not worth it. The Keg has a better steak than this place...

J'adore l'ambiance relax de cet endroit. On se sent comme des invités dans la salle à dîner de nos meilleurs amis. J'aimerais retourner pour essayer d'autres mets. J'avais invité mon fils pour son 25e anniversaire. Nous avons chacun choisi la table d'hôte du midi et n'avons pas été déçus. Nous avons beaucoup aimé le rib eye steak. Nous avons choisi du vin au verre, le prix est abordable, la sélection intéressante. Le service était imppeccable et très courtois, avec un rythme approprié. On a pu prendre tout notre temps pour profiter de notre rencontre.

It was Mother’s Day. The waiter was rushed. Forgot to take our drink orders. Barely spoke or smiled. And after a $100 tip didn’t even say thank you or goodbye or happy Mother’s Day. One expects a certain level of service and hospitality when spending $570 on a meal, especially on Mother’s Day.

Our sever did not greet us properly. Take our order or asked if we needed anything! Another sever came and took drink orders and we had to flag down our waiter Reggie/Reginald ( not sure what his name was because he did not formally greet us. James another sever took excellent care of us. Then we did not leave a tip and Reginald came back and stated how he had to pay the bust boy and making restaurant concerns our concerns! Will never return to this location or franchise in that matter! The steak was mostly fat, and not lean prime cut!

It was great, loved the establishment though we were travelling from Toronto and went to try the cigar lounge and unfortunately the host in the lounge did not explain pricing to us and ended up persuading us to get a $50 cigar for two beginners which I think is a bit crazy but overall good experience

I eat at this restaurant regularly and know what to expect. This time Wr all found the Caesar salad quite greasy.
My steak arrived with garlic and had to be sent back. Instead of returning it to me with regular spices that are put on the steak it came back with nothing on it.
Seemed like an off night. You

I liked it. Pretty old school place. Fancy but not in a contemporary way. Food was good, but not blow your mind good. Overall a little stuffy, and the customers were a little "playa" types -- which made for interesting people watching. Not sure I'd return because it was expensive for what you get.

I DID think the pickle appetiser was awesome.
