    Unfortunately I never got to dine there. Even though I was able to book on open table and the restaurant confirmed via open table, they were not open. It was tough to find a replacement dinner since it was Christmas time and restaurants were booked.

    We went for MTL A Table, with a reservation made a month in advance. We ended up sitting 30’ after our arrival. Fortunately after that the service was quick and the food was delicious. We were offered a coffee with our desert for the waited time.

    Nous avions entre deux ou trois choix pour chaque services. Les mets proposés faisaient partie de nourriture qu’on pourrait appeler « confort food ». Pour le premier service nous avons pris des boulettes à la viande dans une sauce style marinara, elles étaient très bonnes. Pour notre deuxième service, j’ai pris une salade cesar qui était très bonne. Pour notre troisième service, le plat principal (pâtes au ragoût d’agneau), avait beaucoup trop de sel. Pour le dessert, il est certain que ce n’était pas maison. J’avais pris un tiramisu qui n’était pas du tout à température pièce. Il était très froid, donc venait de sortir du frigo. Le service était passablement bien. La pièce s’est remplie quand même assez vite. Par conséquent, comme la porte est proche des tables, ils faisaient très froid. En toutes sommes, ce ne serait pas à répéter comme expérience culinaire. Les repas servis ne valaient pas le pris de la facture qui était d’environ 70$/personne (drink et pourboire inclus) PS: très bon drink (sour pears)

    Une magnifique expérience à Aqua E Farina ! Le service était plaisant, on s'entendait parler et l'ambiance est très sympathique. Tout sur le menu semblait délicieux, il a été dur de faire un choix ! Mais aucune déception tout était super bon. On a toutes aimé notre soirée. On va clairement y retourner.

    Le forfait de Montréal à table était très intéressant; la nourriture est bonne (les Arancinis aux champignons, miam!) et pour le prix ça vaut trop la peine ! Par contre, attendre 30 minutes quand on a réservé, ça ne devrait pas être acceptable. Il y a une mauvaise gestion des places, et c’est dommage pour le reste.

    Great place, really nice menu and interesting cocktails! Staff is welcoming and helpful. Their tiramisu is to die for! The only minus would be the saltiness level of their carbonara, it was a little bit too much. Other than that - totally recommended

    The food was very underwhelming. We did the fixed menu special offer with the AMEX promotion, therefore we received a good value for the price. However, there was no wine list and the food was also was medium quality. I thought it would be better. The service was great though! Attentive waiter.

    Nous sommes venues dans le cadre de MTL à table. C'était très bon dans l'ensemble. Nous sommes deux à avoir pris les carbonara et à les avoir trouvées trop fortes en poivre. Le tiramisu était bon mais trop froid, probablement tout juste sorti du frigo. Mais sinon c'était de très bonne qualité. Le prix est raisonnable. Le serveur semblait être débutant, très approximatif dans ses explications, mais sympathique.

    Visited during Mtl à table event. Very satisfied with the 4 course meal. Loved the generous portion of truffle pasta dish and tiramisu was sublime. Nice relaxed ambiance, but the music that night did not fit the setting well. Service was efficient, but did not see any smiles throughout the service, and no welcoming greeting or goodbye. Still, would recommend and return for the food.

    Went here for a date night with my hubby. The decor was very cute and we really appreciated the music level which wasnt too loud. We had the veal meatballs to start which were pretty good. The Ceasar salad was next and I never thought I'd say too much parmesan but that really was the case here lol I had the lamb ragout pasta which was good and my husband had the carbonara (unfortunately the pancetta was burnt which kind of ruined the dish). We finished with the tiramisu which was excellent. This place has the potential to be really good if they just sharpen up on some of their dishes. I'd like to also mention the service was fantastic. Staff was very attentive and friendly.

    The food and drinks were delicious! The service was slow though, but maybe due to the fact there was only 1 or 2 waiters tending everyone. Drinks arrived after 15 minutes and food was around 30 minutes. Ambience was nice. The patio is cute.

    The food was outstanding, and our table was on the patio, so it was great to be outside and enjoy the atmosphere. Our drinks and appetizers came very quickly, but our main meal took some time to come as the restaurant got busier. Overall, it is a great restaurant!

    The food was amazing, however the service was awful. We were seated and not given a menu or a drink for at least 5 min… two other parties were seated and served before us. There was no toilet paper in the bathroom, when I told a staff about it. They rolled their eyes at me. I then had ask twice more for toilet paper before they finally brought a roll. We then watched the staff clear and service three other tables before they looked towards our table. We had empty drinks and were done our food. They did not offer us a box for our leftovers. They just brought the bill. Sub par service of amazing food!!
