Took my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. Set menu was delicious and filling, ensure you go with an empty stomach. Fantastic view of the bridge and the CMHR. It was the first day of Festival du Voyageur so a number of the staff had sashes round their waist (as did the candles in the windowsill). Both our server as well as the other staff who walked by were all very friendly, funny, considerate, informative, and overall pleasant to be around. Truly a lovely experience. Quite pricey but well worth it.
Wonderful, the food was delicious and the service great!
The server was attentive but not intrusive. She had a very pleasant demeanour.
Food was excellent. The mussels were the best I have ever had. Service by Mike was excellent.
Excellent ambiance. Good wine menu. Moule et Frites fabulous!
Excellent service. Great coffee.
The food was good but not very hot
Really great service. Great food ! Would definitely go back
Well done. Will definitely return. Phenomenal coffee and food!
Everything was very nice. The mussels, lamb and pork tenderloin were excellent.
Our server was attentive ,ambience pleasant.Poached eggs perfect ,nice bacon toast jam.The potatoes were a major disappointment.Big chunks of potatoes ,barely heated ,not crispy ,were neither hash browns or properly fried .A small portion of good potatoes would have been nice as we left most of them.
Wonderful dinner! Great food with one of the best views in the city!
mykel was a wonderful waiter! the food was good (a bit expensive but i don’t have much money to begin with). the rose was the best i’ve had. the atmosphere is quiet and nice for a romantic date.
We made our reservations for 10am and by 1040am they were asking if we would be much longer because there was another reservation for our table...when there was an empty table the same size beside us. Our server was excellent though but the other lady was kinda rude and ruined my first time experience there.
The special, a turkey quiche, was dry and cold. The citrus cake dessert was tasteless. This was an expensive lunch but the experience was mediocre at best.
My mother’s 82nd birthday.
The French onion soup was great. Two out of four main courses were overcooked that is the lamb and the trout....a little disappointing. The creme brûlée was certainly not the best I have had. We are in no rush to return.
The onion soup is great. I enjoyed the boeuf Bourguignon very much. And my wife enjoyed the duck. One young lady at a table beside us was quite loud and that interfered with the otherwise pleasant ambience.
My son and his girlfriends birthday.
Fabulously entertaining and competent server! He was knowledgeable, attentive without being bothersome and has a gift for putting everyone in a good mood.
Each of us loved our selected dinner. The food is excellent.
Really enjoyed our breakfast with friends. Very nice experience as it had been quite a while since we were there. Thankful that we could make a reservation as that took some of the pressure off trying to time it with our friends. Good job!
Delicious and true French cuisine. Absolutely loved the experience.
My friend and I enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. The service was excellent and the soup and Reuben sandwich were delicious! Parking is not the easiest to find in this area but it's worth looking for. We relax by the window and enjoy each other's company until a patron at the table next to us put on the smelliest hand lotion. We immediately we're stuffed up from the scent and had to leave. It might be nice to just have a sign up asking people to refrain from using scented products. It may not help but it might. I will definitely come here again.
The quality continues to be excellent. Our table enjoyed well a prepared meal, service was tops and the ambiance is a little like being in Europe. Looking out over the river and the Provencher bridge adds to the atmosphere. We've dined here New Years Eve for several years and have never been disappointed. Thank you for an lovely evening.
Nice little spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch...decor is very nice and food is very good.
My granddaughter’s meal was very good but mine was just warm, but as we were going to the Concert Hall and there was a group of 35 (Christmas gathering) they arrived right after us, no time to return meal. Also noise level was due to large group.
We love the ambiance and friendly staff. This is a neighborhood gem.
French restaurant on River bank. Nice view. Great service, food is amazing, local food sourcing largely. Good wine list,
The lunch quiche was heaven. Can’t wait to return.
The worst dining experience ever. I don’t know if it changed ownership or what happened but the absolutely worse experience I have ever had at a restaurant.
I am sorry to report that my friends and I were very disappointed with our meals. Three of four ordered the Bistro breakfast. All found the potatoes still cold. I suspect the potatoes had been frozen and heated prior to serving, and we all agreed there were still frozen spots. We did mention this to our server, and she said she would let the kitchen know. I asked for medium poached eggs, but they were undercooked and very runny. I didn't complain because poached eggs are difficult to prepare, but i would expect more from a restaurant that serves breakfast. None of us received the jam we requested (I'd asked for strawberry, but received Saskatoon, which turned out to be a lovely mistake . . . the jam was delicious).
Service was exceptional. Our server was prompt, friendly, and efficient. Coffee was very good, and I appreciated a second cup.
I'll likely return. Promenade Bistro was highly recommended, and our experience was probably not par.
Excellent service and food to celebrate any occasion
Everything was excellent, from the prompt seating, to the prompt and professional service, to the prompt and delicious food. Well done!
Great restaurant, food and ambiance always good in a fabulous location!
Thank you. We had a great lunch. Booked a week ahead and had our table for 8 ready early for us. Great food and service.
Have eaten at Promenade many many times and have to say this was the first time I was a little disappointed with my meal. Ordered the half Poulet 100 milles and found it was a very tiny portion and was very bland. It was supposed to be featured with portabella mushroom and gouda cheese but It didn't seem to be present. The veggies were ok although nothing green on the plate. I found myself continually seasoning with s & p to give it some taste. My wife had the Vegetalien plate and it was very good. I personally wouldn't order the chicken again.
we came to the Promenade for a breakfast reunion with 5 friends. One of the reasons for choosing this restaurant was the fact that we could make a reservation. The service was fantastic - attentive but not intrusive. Great food, lovely atmosphere - highly recommended!
Enjoyed breakfast with great view!
A quality dining experience in St. B. Food has been hit-or-miss: I've had a great brunch there, but on my last dinner the gnocchi portion was small and the bison tourtiere was somewhat dry.
Enjoyed the food and the service
a very comfortable and relaxed place to enjoy lunch. The onion soup is delicious and was thoroughly enjoyed after 2 hours outdoors at the Bomber celebration parade. The restaurant got very busy after the parade, however the staff pulled together and handled all the guests efficiently. Another great experience at this restaurant.
Loved being able to reserve for a Saturday breakfast. Our server was very helpful. The restaurant was busy, but we were able to take our time and visit with our friends. We were pleasantly surprised that our coffee was included with the price of the breakfast. An excellent experience that we will repeat.
