You took my reservation on here. Sent me a confirmation email. And then when I showed up, after walking in the cold and snow, your restaurant was closed with a paper sign in the door. If you’re going to be closed, you shouldn’t be taking reservations.

C’était bon mais pas à se jetter par terre
Il y avait un spécial sur les huîtres rockefeller. Le spécial était 5 huîtres et un verre de bulle mis je ne bois pas d’alcool... je n’ai donc pas pu manger de ses huîtres que j’aime tant vue que le spécial contenait le verre de bulle.
Facture 175$ deux personnes 1 entrée, deux plats et un gin.. un peu cher pour ce qu’on as eu.

The place is really nice. The service was good but the food was not. We ordered the oysters. They were tiny and complained that it had shell pieces in them. They replaced it for me and my friend but it was the same when we got new ones. The calamari was good. The tartar was all right. The lobster ravioli was too seafoody not just for me but for my friends as well. We as to return them as well. We weren’t happy with it. Too bad the place is nice and the food isn’t.

La nourriture était bonne. Le décor bistrot d'époque est amusant. J'y retournerais pour leur spécial "huitres à 1TEMP_OC_CONTENT_HEREquot;. Toutefois, certains aspects mériteraient à être revus. Le serveur a complètement oublié d'apporter les frites qui allaient avec les moules. Quand je le lui ai rappelé, il est revenu en catastrophe avec les frites destinées à une autre table. L'homme de ménage a lavé les salles de toilettes avec un désinfectant très fort dont l'odeur a envahi la salle à manger ce qui nous a chassé. Au moment de sortir, nous l'avons vu secouer le tapis, à quelques pas de clients qui étaient en train de manger. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi le personnel l'a laissé faire son ménage alors que des clients étaient encore à table.

Le tartare manquait d'assaisonnement alors que la soupe à l'oignon était très salée.

Drinks are over priced. Food is a friendly serving. There was a blonde waitress who was just really loving her job, that made my whole experience.

I had the fondue to share for 2, simple and delicious :)

Have fun. Ps, they have beautiful booths if you want to reserve for a smaller party (I believe it’s a booth of 6 or so). Fun decor all round.

I have been to, and recommended, this bistro many times for Sunday brunch and have not only not been disappointed, but quite the opposite: the food is always plentiful, delicious and well-served.

Dinner, on the other hand, was not: the food was very average, the plates were very sad looking, and the service was hit or miss.
Drinks were expensive and I would not return for dinner.

Tres bonne place. Nourriture délicieuse mais plus de 1h30 d’attente entre la commande, l’entrée et le plat. Seule déception.

Service super. Super ambiance. Mais la nourriture, zéro. Quand tu paye 130$ par personne pour souper, tu t'attends à quelques chose d'au moins bon.

We never were seated as the place was packed. As we tried to make our way to the bar we were intercepted by patrons that were served before us even if we had been there longer. Really no attention to customer service on a busy night. Not worth your money. Go somewhere else

Service was horrendous; we had to wait 30 minutes to even just receive glasses of water. Two of our friends ordered steaks that ended up overcooked and they had ran out of spinaches, important part of the meal they had ordered, and did not tell us. The mashed potatoes came as a soup drenched in butter.

Steaks ended up overcooked. All in all, we exited the restaurant almost 3 hours later, unsatisfied.

This was our first time going for dinner (usually do brunch) here and it was very busy. What’s normally really amazing service was pretty slow. Though, it was still very friendly and accommodating. Love the food, the staff, the decor. Will definitely keep going to this place!

Nous voulions essayer un nouveau restaurant. Nous avions un spectacle à 20:00 à 10 min de là. Nous sommes arrivés à 18:05 on nous rasure, nous avons amplement le temps. 15 min d’attente pour un verre de vin et en plus de ne pas avoir été servis en même temps, la dernière assiette est arrivée à 19:40 et les pâtes n’étaient pas assez cuites. Dommage ils ont perdus des clients, de la crédibilité et se sont mérités un commentaire négatif. Je n’y retournerai jamais et ne le recommanderai pas non plus. Il y a tellement de meilleurs choix dans le quartier.
