Tableau Bar Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Pour un bistrot à la française, les plats cuisinés sont peu représentatifs des goûts développés dans la cuisine française même pour les plats les plus basiques (steak frites, escargots, crème brûlée). En plein hiver, par exemple, pourquoi pas de viande mijotée en sauce (daube ou boeuf bourguignon)?
This the 2nd time I've been to the bistro and as I travel extensively I really appreciate finding a restaurant which offers an excellent dining experience without having to break the bank. The meals are attractive to the eye as well as palate without being overly fussy. Comfort food comes to mind and the service was very good. I look forward to returning on my next trip.
The last time I was here was about 2-3 years ago. I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner because I had good memories of quality food and service. We came around 6:30 so the restaurant was fairly empty, maybe only 4 other tables and a couple people at the bar; otherwise, very quiet. Another couple had just come in right before us, and there were 3 workers helping put their coats away. No one asked us for our coats so we wore it in . The table just before us and we both sat near the windows in the entrance area of the restaurant. The waiter came and welcomed the table before us and read out the special for Sunday and walked off. He never gave us any welcome or introduced the menu to us when he dropped it off. I had to wave him over later to order. I'm sure the staff are not rude people; they were all very friendly, but it was a little disappointing because the table just before us were getting very different treatment from us. I have gotten more attentive service at a fully packed restaurant which added to my disappointment. Overall, the taste of the food was good, and I always liked the decor and the general ambience. I wouldn't deter people from going but I probably would mention that the service is not as up to par any more.
I regularly organize business lunches at Tableau. The food and service is consistently excellent, and the ambiance is modern and comfortable. I have only been to Tableau for dinner on one occasion, but I would recommend it as a date spot or for a weeknight dinner with clients.
IT was my first time trying this dining establishment; I was not disappointed. The ambience was lovely, the food clean and perfectly served, with nice flavours, and no heaviness - which is hard to do with an omelette and potatoes!
The service was efficient and friendly, and the establishment itself was clean and inviting, and relaxed, yet classy .
We started off with the French onion soup which was excellent and very filling. My friend had the duck which she enjoyed and I choose the moules and frites. It was very tasty with a generous portion of moules. This was the first time that we had been to the restaurant , and we would return.
This is one of the few bistros in the city where one can actually carry on a conversation, without being drowned out by the noise.
The mussels and gnocchi we shared this evening were really delicious. The food is consistently good at Tableau. The service we received this evening was extremely professional, yet very friendly and accommodating.
Our main courses were served lukewarm due to cold plates. The manager provided 2 desserts gratis as an apology which was appreciated. We found it rather noisy for our liking as my husband is hard of hearing which made dinner conversation difficult or impossible. The French Onion soup was delicious.
I hadn't been to Tableau for a couple of years, as I had never found anything on the menu that I liked as much as the gnocchi they used to have but took off the menu. However, I saw that they now have another gnocchi dish that seemed like it might be similar. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. When I ordered, the server let me know that the gnocchi were made out of polenta, not potatoes. I thought that was strange, but decided to try it anyway. It neither looked nor tasted anything like gnocchi. It was basically polenta cakes, with huge pieces of tomato, and something that looked like rhubarb. I thought that was impossible, because I couldn't understand why anyone would put rhubarb in "gnocchi", but I couldn't figure out what else it could possibly be. I didn't even eat half. One of the most disappointing restaurant meals I have ever had.
The food was really good but about the service, didn't like it much. Because of 2 hour dining period, everything was kind of in rush. They would say no rush or take your time but the moment you start talking with your friends and giving your self a break, your dish will be collected! They don't let you finish your food and enjoy your time.
It's like you just have to go and eat, not to socialize and be relax.
Didn't see our server for 10 minutes after we were seated.
The pork cheek ragout over pasta really good. Our server recommended a squeeze of lemon on the roasted brussel sprouts, that was a very nice touch.
Our server then disappeared after she brought our dessert and wouldn't return for 20 minutes so we were kind of stuck there waiting to get our bill.
Overall the food was really good and exceeded my expectations and the other servers seem to be on the ball, it was unfortunate ours wasn't.
I would still come again.
Service and food was good overall. Although for some reason we had two servers and they each kept coming back to ask “how’s your meal” or “how’s it going so far” every 5 minutes. I appreciate the attentiveness but it got a bit bothersome and made us feel rushed to finish our meal. A bit more space and privacy would’ve been better and made us felt more at ease.
