I loved the food. Had an absolutely divine squash soup. Beef shoulder was probably the most tender beef I’ve ever eaten. Food was plated beautifully.

Service was slow, even though the restaurant was practically empty. Staff were very nice. Just slow. Also, the English translations in the menu had some mistakes, which led my wife to order a dish she didn’t want. They brought us the lunch menus even though it was dinner time. And they forgot our dessert order so we had to repeat it after waiting patiently for it to be served.

Amazing food though.

Food was excellent. Best filet mignon I have had in awhile. My son enjoyed his octopus appetizer & my fois gras starter was decadent. My husband enjoyed his lamb main course. Would definitely go back!

Très déçu ce dit restaurant français, les plats ne sont pas très gouteux servis avec des frites, les plats sont arrivés dans le mauvais ordre. On nous apporte tous les plats en même temps, et on vient pas desservir quand on a fini. Je ne recommande vraiment pas

J'ai globalement apprécié mon expérience au Verses à l'occasion du Montréal à table. Le seul hic, comme c'est le cas de la plupart de ce genre de restaurants, c'est la petite quantité qui est servie pour le prix que l'on paie. D'autres restaurants qui participent également au Montréal à table offrent un menu moins cher et plus copieux. Les petites portions font peut être le bonheur de certains, mais ce n'est pas mon style .

we went for mtlàtable and the menu on the day of didn't match what had been online which was a bit disappointing. there were 2 courses for the brunch of this event and the first was incredible which might have made the second one even more disappointing. i've been here for dinner several times and always loved that so it might just have been one lacklustre dish for the main this one time. friendly and attentive staff, nice atmosphere, love the area.

Heure de notre réservation : 9h30, un dimanche. J'ai choisi ce restaurant afin de profiter du BRUNCH. En plus, d'apprendre sur place, que le menu du BRUNCH n'était pas disponible avant 11h ce matin-là, nous avons dû attendre nos «simples» déjeuners 1 heure après avoir passé la commande à la serveuse. Nous les avons reçus tièdes !!! On m'a dit qu'il ont eu des problèmes avec les cuisine... Me semble, oui! Nous étions à peine 12 personnes dans le resto qui pouvait en contenir au minimum 100. Désolé mais je n'y retournerai plus. J'aurai préféré me faire dire qu'il ne pouvait pas m'accueillir...

Who in their right mind serves fish over baba ganoush? It was silly and no salt - we asked four times for better quality non commercial salt to come out of the kitchen and the chiefs refused to give us any. The gazpacho was too sweet and too pureed.
Last year the chef was great and this year they don't know what they're doing in the kitchen in an effort to make a less gourmet restaurant they simply failed even to make bistro food.

While the food was excellent, the service left a lot to be desired. Our sever wasn’t very friendly, and I even had to visit the bar to get my own drink at one point. Overall, we enjoyed our meal (especially our table by the window), but they need to rethink their staffing.
