Brunch was great, waitress was pleasant, nice decor and comfy seats. It was a little loud, but probably because it was early afternoon on Father's Day.
Definitely recommend!

We had father’s day brunch here and it was excellent. From the hostess to our server, Nadia—The staff were so kind and attentive. The food was superb and beautifully presented. We actually were here 10 years ago for our honeymoon, and it was just as lovely as I remembered it from the first time.

Incredible food and a charismatic, genuine waiter (Gavin) combined to manifest themselves into a truly extraordinary experience. Might I reiterate: the food was phenomenal, but Gavin was even better.

Excellent service! Great menu, including the special Grand Prix F1 menu. Tried escargot for the first time - delicious! The duck entree was also top notch. I would highly recommend it to friends and family. Our group of 7 friends was very satisfied, and everyone was able to find something they liked on the menu.

Our meal out was really pleasant. There were plenty of vegetarian options on the menu and the roasted vegetable mille feuille was amazing. The best part of the restaurant was the service. Our server, Gavin, was very friendly, kind and informative. He was helpful with both food and wine choices. I would recommend this restaurant. It has a really great vibe.

Great atmosphere. Service was very courteous and efficient. The food was ok. It seemed to have been sitting a while before it arrived to the table. Probably some trouble synchronizing our orders. But the decor and atmosphere made up for it. A good Old Montreal Experience.

Really nice interior, humming with a 20-30 crowd. We sat at a high table by the window away from the bar and enjoyed our friends' company without competing with a high volume of noise. The menu was small and most dishes were tasty. The appetizer salad had a creamy unappetizing dressing and the filet mignon came well-cooked when it was ordered rare. But the flank steak with sweet potato fries was a hit. The waitress was very accommodating. A really nice evening overall.

The food, the ambiance and service by our waiter Gavin was excellent. Gavin went out of his way to make us comfortable and explain things.
However , the overall management of our dining experience was very disappointing.
When we were seated, the maitre d informed us that we had the table for 2 hours. Somewhat surprising in such a nice restaurant. However, we were not concerned because our dining out rarely takes more than 2 hours.
However, after determining the wine we ordered was not available, we waited over 10 minutes for a replacement one. In addition, we waited about 30!minutes for our main course to arrive.
Finally, as we started to eat our dessert, our waiter was told to ask us to move with our desserts and tea to the bar to finish , because other customers would be coming soon. We declined and finished at our table. When we departed, about 20 minutes beyond the 2 hours, there we no other customers waiting and many empty tables.
Our delay beyond the 2 hours was due to the restaurant delays, not our own. The management of the situation was very disappointing. It ruined our third course and overall dining experience.

Please clean your bathroom each time it's disgusting.
It's really expensive for a very average food.
Noise is a real issue in that restaurant.
And service is poor.

Arrived to the restaurant for a 1:45pm reservation at 1:40pm and was prompted seated. From 1:40pm-2:30pm is where it becomes a bit hazy. Our drink orders were taken however, it took some time for them to come and then for our food orders to be taken as well. Completely understandable if the restaurant was busy, however with it being fully staffed along with a pretty small crowd, the lack of urgency seemed to be the problem. The food is delicious once it comes out. It’s a beautiful space, however the lack of service overshadowed any of the positive attributes to the restaurant.

Set the bar high by eating here my first night of a long weekend in Montreal. All muncher meals I was comparing to this one. It’s was an overall great experience that set the tone to a weekend get away from NYC. There are a lot of places to choose from but take it from a foodie, eat here.
