    It’s called a Brasserie but the selection of beers was very limited and no Sauvignon Blanc on the wine list. Duck was very good. The carrot dish was surprising for its price. No bread served with our meal. Waiter indicated it is only served if requested. A french restaurant should always serve bread. Unfortunately, I will not recommend this restaurant to my family or friends.

    We really enjoyed the experience. Food, wine and service were great and on top of that, it was like a trip back in time in a well preserved building dating back to 1912.

    Overrated—pretentious and condescending service. Waiter was rude, mocked me for ordering French fries. It turns out they were inedible—fried in disgusting oil that appears not to have been changed In days or weeks. Also the some of vegetables with our steaks were literally black, others, like asparagus was just disgusting and mushy. The first courses, smoked salmon and beets were actually good. The steaks okay. It a lot of money and a lot of attitude for so-so food, though. Frankly, kind of seemed like a tourist trap. You can do way better in Montreal.

    Bonjour, j’invitais ma mère pour un brunch du dimanche. L’hôtesse nous a donné la pire des tables même si le restaurant était vide. Nous avons demandé à changer de table et notre serveur a été très courtois en nous offrant une banquette. Nous avons mangé une salade de homard qui était simplement deux petits morceaux de homard sur un nid de petits pois. Pour 32$, c’était un peu maigre comme repas...sans pain, sans sel ni poivre sur la table, mais surtout sans goût. Bref, j’ai ajouter une entrée de crevettes pour ne pas mourir de faim et nous nous sommes rabattues sur deux crèmes brûlées en dessert. Là, pour le coup, elles étaient énormes! Côté vin, on nous a offert un chardonnay, un pinot grigio ou un sancerre…j’ai du demander la carte car les cépages ne me suffisent pas pour choisir un verre de vin, surtout pour un restaurant de ce niveau qui a quand même une belle carte. Bref, ce n’était pas aussi idyllique que le décor pouvait nous laisser imaginer.

    On peut s’attendre à une expérience quand on soupe à cet endroit. Mauvaise décision d’aller sur la terrasse, sièges tellement inconfortables. Service brouillon, serveur qui semblait vouloir être ailleurs. Bouffe insipide. C’est triste!

    Excellent food, service was good; when I ordered the soup of the day it didn’t say it was a cold soup on the menu and the waiter didn’t mention it either; but it was delicious. Ordered oysters but was not told what kind they were/what region they were from.. but they were delicious also. Would definitely return.

    Arrived for reserved table and were seated immediately at a streetside outdoor table as requested. There was some delay in service after cocktails were served, but it was a beautiful afternoon. After several minutes we ordered our brunch and chatted on. The brunch arrived and the food was delicious. I had a house smoked salmon bagel, with a small green salad, a decent plate. My wife had a lobster salad, nice lobster, fresh green peas, asparagus and a tasty herb mayonnaise. A second delay occurred while waiting for the check; our waiter had become engaged in conversation with other guests, but again, it was a lovely afternoon, and true to the tradition, a guest is never pressed to leave!!

    Vey nice atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent. Otherwise it was mediocre. They said the entrecôte was a specialty and recommended medium rare. It was about a 1/16 of an inch thick and was grey. There is no way they could have made that wafer thin piece of meat medium rare. The asparagus was the highlight of the plate. Both sprigs. Haha. Would not go back.
