Service was lacking. We weren't told the specials. We only realized because we saw the next table with an item that wasn't on the menu. When we received the bill, the waiter left and took a very long time to return to our table with the credit card machine. Restaurant was not busy. Food tasted great though. The Sunday pork special was amazing!

Went out for a solo meal when in town for a conference. Attentive service and comfortable table for one by the window so I could read my paper. Even though it's downtown the location felt more neighbourhood than urban. Very reasonable prices given the quality of the food, nice ambience, I'll definitely be back!

The service was poor.

The food was average at best. I had the duck and it was not cooked enough for me.

I made reservations and when I was seated I was told that the table was needed two hours from the time I sat down. I found that rude.

I would not go back.

Pleasant service, excellent quality! However, when serving a table for two, food needs to come in courses. There is no room on the table for more than one dish at a time!

The tables are quite close together and we were seated next to someone with a very loud voice.
That detracted from our overall enjoyment of what was otherwise a very pleasant meal.

The food and the service were both excellent. The taste of the dishes was formidable.

The only negative was the music... for a French bistro, the modern music was pathetic.

The restaurant was so incredibly noisy that I couldn't have a conversation with my friend. The staff kindly changed my table to one at the back of the restaurant. This was better but still too noisy. I was also very disappointed with the pork cheeks entree. This seemed like something I would see at a low end diner. I've had the steak before (which is good) but wanted something different. I think Tableau should expand the number of regular entrees. I live in the neighbourhood so I would like to go frequently but the menu is too limited and I don't want to risk another disappointment. For example, why not have scallops or salmon?
I just emailed a friend and told him how disappointed I was with the overall experience so we will probably not go to Tableau for his birthday. The good thing is the staff...they are very friendly and helpful. Also, the Happy hour is great but perhaps that was the source of the extremely noisy tables (we had a reservation for 6:00 PM so perhaps there was an overlap with this crowd).

I like this restaurant and the food is great but they are understaffed. It took them almost half an hour to get us our cocktails because they had one bartender for a busy Friday at lunch. The wine arrived 15 minutes before the martinis. When the martinis finally arrived one had about 3 ox of vodka and the other had about 1 oz and the 1 oz one was warm. Very annoying.

Unfortunately the food is inconsistent here. We ordered the mushroom toast which was blande. It needed more gravy/sauce. In contrast the free range chicken entree was overly salted. It was like they sprinkled salt all over the plate mistakenly as pepper. This isn’t my first time here and my favorite dishes were a disappointment.

This dinner was a wedding anniversary celebration and service was mediocre.

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.

The food tasted nothing like french cuisine. The boeuf bourguignon that we all looked for was a big disappointment. The only good part was the almond financier. Skip the main and get the desserts!

Highly recommend Tableau for brunch, ladies dinner, or date night. Great cocktails and wine list (I love the Joie Pinot Noir). Food is rich and flavourful. Great ambience, decor, and service is friendly and not overbearing.
