Très bon service de Mathieu. Très belle expérience dans l’ensemble, service à la table. Sauce au poivre flambée, un must. Tout cela se paie, donc très chère mais cela vaut le coût.

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.

The service is very good from the moment you arrive. Once you're sitting down it goes into overdrive: attentive, excellent recommendations and great hands on production of Caesar Salad and Cr'pe Suzette which you cannot find anywhere else in Montreal.

The meat was the way we ordered it and the side dishes appetizing hot and delicious.

Wine list out of this world and dessert to die for.

We're going back.

Went to the restaurant and when we arrived, they seated us next to a table full of young adults. The table was really loud and boisterous - all of the patrons in the restaurant were looking at them and no one in the wait staff or host intervened. As a result we enjoyed our experience a little bit less than usual. First time that this happened. The food was great, the waiters attentive but we did not really enjoy our evening. Disappointing...

Expcetional service from waiter for table 96 FRIDAY FEB. 15 2019 he was able to discern that we didn’t like the table that was assigned to us and had us moved to table #96 great move. Very attentive service but not overbearing. Meat cooked right. Entrées plentiful. Great atmosphere.
