The music was a little too loud. I am all for music helping to build the ambiance but when you cannot clearly hear the person opposite you on the table without shouting, it is a little too much.

The food was very good as was the service.

Adding a chocolate mousse to the dessert menu would definitely bring us back.

My only complaint is the noise level which it seems to me would not be that hard to remedy I the room with some sound baffling.
The food is fantastic.

We celebrated our anniversary here and it was a spectacular experience. Our server was very knowledgable and his service was much appreciated. Everything we ordered was on point and delicious. Fresh oysters and Mushrooms on toast to start, Trout Almondine and Pan Roasted Duck for mains. We were served a fabulous house made cheesecake paired with a dessert wine on the house on the occasion of our anniversary! The room is classic modern with flair, and yes, one of the cleanest restaurant washrooms in the city!

We LOVE Tableau! Love the service, and the amazing food (steak frites is always cooked to perfection with the perfect amount of char, steak tartare is so tasty, and drench onion soup is a flavour bomb!). My go to when guests come and I love that it’s a hidden gem and not too many people know about it still. Totally underrated and seriously delicious and not greasy French food

I had a very simple breakfast, the grand Tableau - eggs, sausage, bacon. I had the most delicious breakfast I was absolutely pleasantly surprised. Best bacon, eggs and sausage ever. Service was great too, all the staff were very friendly.

Enjoyed a lovely evening at Tableau, celebrating our 23rd anniversary. Service, ambience, food all met our expectations.
A nice touch was the anniversary card from the restaurant and we appreciated the table visit by the manager.
Our server was friendly and efficient.
Thanks - we will tell others about our great dining experience.

Food was good, service was good but the noise level was horrible I sat across from my guest and I was unable to hear the conversation, far to many hard surfaces reflecting the noise.

The service was great. Scallop and grapefruit appetizer was really good and steak tartare was exactly as you would expect it to be. Really well cooked duck and the moles frites were delicious. Finished with a nice crispy topped creme brûlée.

We had a reservation for 8:15pm but it was so busy on Friday night that we didn’t get seated until 9:15pm

It would have been a disastrous night but the experienced staff there really made an effort to smooth things over. They did that in spades. Not only did they comp our wine and apply we had while we waited in the lobby for our table, throughout the night everyone was attentive , always keeping us in the loop about our table. When we finally did get our table we were treated with great food and service.
The night was saved and my friends and I had a wonderful night. The show of a really good restaurant is not just what they do on regular nights but how they handle adversity on tough nights ...with professionalism and acknowledgement.
Thank you to everyone that worked that night!

I’ve been to Tableau many times. Unfortunately there were a few misses this time. Firstly we arrived 10 mins early for our reso -we were told that they were setting up our table and we could take a seat in the lobby and they would come get us. After 20 minutes of waiting I went to ask and it seemed like they had forgotten about us as we were seated promptly. Dinner wise our brussel sprouts for the table did not come with the meal. When I asked they said they were burnt so they were remaking them. In the end they came out as we were almost finished our mains. Food was still high quality and these hiccups are not my normal experience with Tableau.

Our waiter was so great. An aspiring actor that kept us laughing and engaged.
The food was mostly very good. The tuna niscoise wasn’t the best we’ve tried. We prefer a more traditional style. The French onion soup and the mushroom toast was amazing.

We visited Tableau on our anniversary.
They provided impeccable appetizers, entree, and dessert.
I normally cannot finish a dish, but I completed my dish there.
Would definitely go again, as the pricepoint is actually very reasonable, considering that it's attached to a hotel with great interior design and service.
Happy with the experience overall.

Excellent meal, everything was on point. We enjoyed the mushroom toast as our appetizer and shared the steak frites. Dessert options were very difficult to decide; we went with the raspberry macaroons and also ordered vanilla bean creme brulee, both items paired very nicely with port.
