The food is very rich and delicious. Lots of cream and butter used in those sauces but no complaints! Everything was delicious. The only caution is if you have picky eaters. The menu is limited so you have to be flexible on your choices. The atmosphere is casual bistro with small wood tables, but the location on Beaver Hall facing the tall modern business towers is very cool. We enjoyed our midweek romantic dinner there. More

First visit, and I am already in love ! I was lucky to have lunch at the XVIXVI during the "Golden Montreal Restaurant Week", and had a wonderful meal for only 30$. Three courses, starting with a beautiful plate of raw Scallops (see picture). Excellent lobster risotto next , warm and tasty. And then an amazing Beet ice-cream (!!) that combined a lot of surprising textures. I will definitely return and brings customers, colleagues and friend, hopefully in the evening so that we can have a chat with the Robot bartender ! More

Haven’t returned in years but decided before going to a hockey game . We were 4 people ;good choice of specials ! Tried trio of hummus-good but very small portion for price ; charcuterie plate -good choices but again not much for value and 4 small crackers ! No bread provided at all during dining . Service fell short once restaurant started to get busy with larger groups . Always had to ask and find someone for water or more wine /beer. Main courses were good and plentiful. Coffee ok. Wine was delicious (Barolo Fontanafredda). Little pricey on small glass offering . However the avocado fries were divine and creamy ! More

I love the intimate cafe. I was told by the owner that the open table reservations were only for the reserved rooms. That is too bad for me. Since there are few tables for the public cafe area. I would have definitely used it only for the cafe. I am not sure if I would go for a reserved room via opentable when they change it over unfortunately. It wouldn't be for me. The collection of teas and lattes are delicious! Highly recommended! More
