Food and service were very very good. We were somewhat disappointed as we had commented when making our reservation that it was our 30th anniversary and requested quiet table We did not get a quiet table and our anniversary was not mentioned. Other than that was very good

The place is lovely and the menu is good. The boeuf bourguignon was very tasty and tender. However there were a few pieces that were very fatty and I could not eat them. My cappuccino was a bit bitter. The honey and lavender crème brûlée was delicious. Service was excellent It is a bit pricy though.

Had booked this restaurant for our 25th anniversary by mistake. Thought it was on the Esplanade Riel bridge but is on the corner of Tache and Provencher with a VIEW of the bridge. Nevertheless the service was excellent—very friendly and approachable server. Hubby loved the Boeuf Bourguignon. The Coq au vin was made with a white wine sauce which the server let us know beforehand which was appreciated. The Coq au vin was okay but nothing special. Excellent French onion soup and Caesar salad as well as the mushroom salad. Was a nice quiet atmosphere when we were there at 6 pm on a Tuesday.

I went for supper with my dad qnd I wish I had gone with my boyfriend instead because the hambient is very romantic. I loved the food. Everything we ordered was excellent. Only downside, they did nit have any craft beer but I think that's just because the wine is a much better vhoice with their food.

My second experience where the food was good but the service was poor. This time my ‘reservation’ was held hostage by diners who did not wish to leave. Never mind that there were empty tables available. Then our waitress was delayed taking our order.
Good thing there are great restaurants in the city with much better service from which to chose.

Had a reservation for a large group following a charity walk. Restaurant was very full and it was a bit of a wait for beverages & food. The wait was the only issue we had. The server was helpful and pleasant. The food was amazing. 10/10 would return & recommend to others.

The vegetarian gnocchi was outstanding; so very flavourful! Our server was very good for our group of 7. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because a) they charge for the baguette even though the meals are a little on the pricier side for dinner; and b) they don't put "house wine" on the wine list, so I ended up having to pay $11 for a 6 oz pour of an "okay" white wine, while later I heard someone ask for the house wine and the server told me that they don't put that on the wine list. Otherwise though, very enjoyable meal.

Atmosphere was relaxed. Not overly busy for a Sunday afternoon. Breakfast was only served till noon so had to order from Lunch menu. Service was friendly and efficient. My house salad was fresh and the strawberry vinaigrette was delicious. My quiche was alright although the portion size could have been larger. Our server explained that the clubhouse on rye would have only two slices of bread instead of the usual three because of the irregular shaped slices. I don’t understand the logic behind this and it was a bit messy to eat as the filling slid around and fell out as a result. I’d recommend ordering multigrain when ordering the clubhouse. Fries were seasoned nicely, not overly salted.
Highly recommend.

The food was good however I made a reservation for 5 people a week in advance and I was being seated at a table for 4 and they wanted to put a chair at end and make it crowded. When I said I made a reservation for 5 the waitress just looked at me and said they were busy! I was not happy and said I made my reservation a week ago and they then pulled another table over. The service was not the prompt...we had to ask when I order was going to be taken and a few issues with one persons meal. Also when I walked in there were 3 waitresses behind the very tall counter and kept asking me what I said cause the counter was blocking. It would be nice if they came around the counter and greeted you at the door instead of asking more then a couple times what you were saying

The atmosphere was nice. The food was very good. Excellent missed only because my partner’s pork was a little over cooked. Our dining experience was special as two from our group, both visiting from MTL QC, were able to be part of the French quarter experience of Wpg. They were very impressed with the ability & ease with which they could converse with the restaurant personnel in French & loved the food, in particular the (Manitoban) bison burger & « les moules »!
