WoW! Deuxième visite et toujours incroyable. Un sans faute de la réception à la facture. Notre serveur était très attentionné, ses recommandations de mets et de vin étaient parfaites. Nous avons passé une très belle soirée.
Merci à toutes l’équipe

Je pense que vous pourriez proposer du pain en dehors de l’assiette de pain accompagnée de sardine,fromage et beurre très bon au demeurant

L’ambiance sonore est un peu élevée et pourtant toutes les tables n’étaient pas occupée
Nous avons partagé un bon déjeuner avec ma fille

Nous sommes sortis déçus .Nous nous attendions à un waou à tous niveaux au vu de la réputation de ce restaurant.La qualité n'était pas au rendez-vous ce jour de la saint -Valentin.
La morue était sans goût , le risotto aux fruits de mer ordinaire, l'entrée d'oursin avec une portion d'oursin mesquine versus la portion de mousse de passion très (trop )importante.
Le restaurant était full et le niveau sonore pas agréable.L'addition très salée pour une soirée qui s'est révélée décevante autant pour la nourriture que pour l'ambiance.Bref, une expérience que nous ne renouvelerons pas.

I was at Helena’s a few years ago when I was in Montreal for business and came here from a recommendation from my hotel concierge.

This time we came on Valentines with clients (the conference happen to be scheduled on Valentines, go figure that one out)and decided to come to Helena’s. What a fabulous meal! It was a Valentines special meal and it was exceptional, the food was just like the last time I came and how I remembered it. Delicious!!

The dessert was out of this world, a selection of four mousse cakes and some edible flowers.

Service was attentive and spectacular and so helpful when we needed help deciding or explaining the different items in the menu.

Highly recommend Helena be at least one of your meals if you are in Montreal.

La nourriture était très bonne, et la table d'hôte à 28$ le midi est un excellent rapport qualité-prix, cependant notre serveur, lorsque nous lui avons demandé une suggestion de vin au verre, est parti et est revenu nous servir un vin sans nous mentionner le prix, résultat mon dîner m'a coûté plus de 60$. Un peu indélicat.

Way overpriced for what you get. Food quality is good but portions are miniscule. Also, waiter is agressive in coercing you to order more than you want and does not listen to when you politely decline the first time. Paid $145 for lunch for two (included two beers), and left hungry and late for next meeting (ended up giving in to the waiter, and instead of the promised 10 minute wait for the additional dish, waited for 20). For $145 you can get a great steak dinner for two at Gibbys across the street, which will taste better and will include free valet parking and respectful and non-pushy waiters.

Je ne recommande pas une table pour deux dans la période des fêtes à moins de vouloir être assis au milieu d’une autouroute de serveurs qui noua accroché Pratiquement à chaque passage
Très déçue de mon expérience dans un restaurant que j’aime bien mais qui A privilégié la quantité de tables au détriment de l’expérience des clients

Restaurant très agréable: excellent service, beau choix de menu. Saveurs uniques et mémorables. Les plats sont bien présentés, copieux et très raffinés.
Par contre, la facture est assez salée et l'atmosphère assez bruyante.
J'y retournerais sans hésiter et vous le recommande fortement.

The service was uncoordinated at times and we received hot plates which had time to cool before we got the food that was supposed to go with it. We had the tasting menu with the wine and the food and wine pairings were perfect. As wait time for food was a bit long, our wine glasses had to be topped up now and then but we sometimes had finished the wine before the food arrived.
