Although the Waitress did her best to compensate us, I feel like communicating the issue early On would of made things slightly better. We waited almost an hour for Our food which is totally unacceptable, especially when we see people getting their food before us even tough they we're seated after us. After 45 Minutes, I had to ask what was up with our food, only then the Waitress told us there was a delay. In any case still tipped as she waived of the fee which was appreciated but necessary. Will I recommend a Friend, I'm not sure, we don't know if we will come back either...

Not a lot of choices for Valentine's day menu. Usually, restaurants offer red meat, seafood and fish.
The service was very good. The waiter was very professional and he took the time to explain us the choices of the menu.

J’ai averti la serveuse de mes allergies aux noix, on m’a dit que mon plat serait exempt de noix. Puis, on m’a apporté une soupe qui était pleine de noix ce qui était très dangereux pour ma sécurité, j’ai dû échanger mon assiette avec ma compagne. J’ai souligné le faux pas à la serveuse et au maître de service, le restaurant n’a rien fait pour tenter de corriger son erreur. Très mauvaise expérience!

It was nosier than I like in a restaurant mainly due to a large group in the bar area. Our food was delicious - the best meals I had in Montreal on this trip - Lobster Risotto was amazing as was the steak and frites. Escargot were delicious but could have been hotter . Need to improve the wine by the glass options - not to have a Sauvignon Blanc was very disappointing & far too many American wines for my liking.

En général, l'expérience était bien. Le service était impeccable et l'ambiance est agréable. Toutefois, la nourriture n'était pas à la hauteur de mes attentes. Ma bavette était très mince et beaucoup trop cuite. La crème brûlée goûtait bonne mais était liquide.

I do have a comment on my crème brûlée:
The crust was cold, when it’s suppose to be burnt right before being served, which was a little but disappointing. Plus the crust was like 2mm thick, which is quite big for a sugar crust; I was quite hard to crunch.

Overall the restaurant experience was good, but the desert was disappointing

Absolutely wonderful in every respect: beautiful presentation of delicious brunch offerings. Breads were exceptional as well as jam. Free parking by valet was a bonus. Will return

My husband and I came here for brunch during Happening Gourmand and I gotta say we were disappointed. The food was good, however they brought all our main and starters together so we ended up eating our pastries last. No big deal. Waiter never came back to ask us if food was to our liking. After having our food, I was still drinking my mimosa and the waiter already came to ask us if we wanted our bill. He came with our bill and right away wanted us to pay. I find the whole service was hurried, I never got to enjoy the rest of my mimosa and the whole brunch, and on top of that we were only there for an hour. Also on our way out two waiters bumped into us and didn’t even say excuse me or sorry. Do yourselves a favour and stay away from this place if you expect great service, take your hard earned money to the Hotel St. James instead. For the location, I am surprised at how the service was super lacking.

Pas étonnée... Endroit qui se veut chic mais qui ne l'est pas. Bruyant et nous avons attendu a l'entrée car niveau organisation cela avait l'air confus et brouillon.
Les desserts non et mon entrée était du surgelé. Le plat excellent viande très bonne

We felt like it was an okay experience. Service was good but not great (wrong meal was brought to the table, not asked about dessert) and food was likewise. Nothing exceptionally bad but just not enough to entice me back.

Went for Happening Gourmand deal. Everything was good. Not great but good. Tables too close to others that it seemed like we were having dinner with them. The appetizers were decent but nothing extraordinary. The main of mahi-mahi was dry but the ratatouille helped add some taste to it. The bavette was actually flank steak and undercooked both times after being sent back. Dessert was the best offering of the meal. Overall pleasant experience but nothing special.

The place is very nice and well located. The brunch choice is a bit limited but remains correct. Our waitress was ok but I was for stuffs she never brought especially after we paid. Will recommend it but there are better brunches place in Montréal
