Hello Courtney room!

Thank your for a good experience at your establishment.

Thank you also for having taken Covid precautions. However, it would have been better if you had advised us at reservation time that we, as patrons, would have to give proof of vaccination before entry. Luckily, we both had such information on hand, but we might not have had it with us. As far as I know, compulsory show of passport is not starting until later in the month.

The food was very good. However, we had to wait soo long for it!! Too long. Like I started looking at my phone after 35 minutes, because I was getting too antsy and irritable.

I understand that sometimes you might be short of staff, and/or some of the food is prepared by hand, therefore it takes time. But then it would be very helpful if you would advise us of how much time it takes between ordering and actual service. Then we can order accordingly, like start with a (quick to make, or readily available) appetizer, for example, or have nibbles or bread on the table, like they do in some other restaurants.

I am hypoglycemic. Had I known we had to wait so long to eat, I would have nibbled on some protein before coming.

Since it was our anniversary, we were given 3oz of a bubbly wine. It should have done the trick to tie me over until the food came. But drinking alcohol on an empty stomach just spikes the sugar level, and then it drops dramatically. Again, had I known the food was going to take so long to come, I would not have drunk it before the meal, while we were waiting, making me quite dizzy.

Speaking of the bubbly wine: it was brought to our table along with a beautiful card, since the meal was to be for our honeymoon celebration. That was a very fine gesture, thank you, and the wine was excellent enough for me to order it with my meal. But then, when we got the bill, I noticed we had been charged for the 3oz. of wine that had been brought to us without our asking! Not so cool, is it!?

Thanks

Hello Eva, Thank you for your feedback and your nice comments about the food. Our food is prepared with great care, and it takes a little longer to reach the table. It is unfortunate that this had a negative impact on your dining experience. The PHO for vaccine passports took effect September 13th - we're glad you had yours with you! The wine was absolutely supposed to be our gift to you! This was a blunder and we apologize that it appeared on your bill. With every good wish, Renée Lauzon

Waiting for food was super long. Service was bad. When we booked, we chose the tasting menu option. When our server finally arrived, given it takes her 15 minutes to arrive, we were worried it’s going to be a long dinner. So we asked how long will it take for the tasting menu, she said 3 hours!!! So we decided to order only 2 courses for each person on the table. We have a party of 3, we ordered only 2 appetizers to share and 3 main dishes.

Arrived 7:40pm, no waiter until 8pm. Finally ordered at 8:05. Appetizers didn’t come until 8:35. Entree didn’t come until 9:20. As we finished our main at 9:35. we skipped dessert and just want to leave.

So yeah, even you ordered only 2 courses it still takes you 2 hours! I don’t think the tasting menu of 8 courses will be possible in 3 hours like our server said.

There were no sign of getting food arrived earlier even she saw you sitting there with no food for more than 30 minutes.

In the same time the table next to us arrived late than us, ordered later than us, but all their dishes came before us. And their waiting time between courses are much shorter. They left before us and they had 3 courses including desert! Because they know the Chef and each time their food was delivered on the table by the Chef and their server together. He was there to introduce the dishes and chit-chat a little bit before going back inside to Cook our food or other tables food! Our food and other tables were not even introduced the ingredients whatsoever by our server.

Totally ridiculous!
Will never go back!

The staff seemed overwhelmed with very minimal customers. They were out of key menu items. We decided to go to the Courtney room because of these items. We ended up ordering something else that was sub par and left with a very defeated feeling.

The server did an excellent job ensuring our dinner was taken care with all of our little requests being handled with care and grace. The food was of excellent quality, it’s the kind of place where you can order anything and it’ll turn out amazing. The burrata/tomato along with the ling cod was our favourite dishes of the night.

I appreciate there is a staff shortage but the length of time to get served was longer than any other dining experience. We pre order the 7 course tasting menu and it took 1 hr 15 minutes to get the 1st course. 3 hours for the 7 courses, and for over $110 per person - that's simply not up to the standard I would expect. I cannot recommend this restaurant.

We did the tasting menu and were wowed at every serving. The combinations to create flavors was unprecedented. My wife and I traveled to 38 countries to go around the world in 2017 thinking we had experienced the best of the best until we had our experience in this little jewel.
Not only was the presentation and tastes amazing but the server was totally into the ingredients too and took great joy In describing each course

Tasting menu for our 22nd wedding anniversary; service was prompt, attentive and friendly. Tables nicely spaced so one did not feel crowded. Food came with good intervals making for an entertaining and interesting 2 hours. Food was always interesting, and as a fan of tasting menus it did not disappoint. Highly recommended.

The food was underwhelming and overpriced. I ordered the “tri-colour “ pasta dish and have never seen a more unappetizing dish - way overpriced. My wife ordered the burrata and tomato dish - short on burrata and overpriced. We will never go again.

Great food and service. I had a steak and my wife had cod. We shared a salad that was wonderful with an ice cream sandwich for desert
My only real concern was the mark up on the wine list which is otherwise very good I think some looked to be around %300 or more
I would return
