    The food was tasty and good value for the money but the service was very slow. Our dessert was forgotten or taken by another server so it was about a 40 minute wait for the creme brûlée. They recognized their mistake and comped the dessert but I would have preferred to have the time back instead.

    Cela était ma troisième visite à la brasserie 701 en 3 ans. Cette fois-si j'ai été déçu de mon expérience (brunch)...je constate qu'ils ont modifié leur offre lors du brunch qui m'a laissé sur ma faim. Avant la covid-19, il proposait pour le brunch de miniature vinoiseries avec quels fruits avant le repas commandé....ce n'est plus cas. Mon plat était froid (oeuf bénédictine). Le lieu est toujours magnifique mais été moins propre au moment de notre visite (samedi). Cela sera ma dernière fois car il y a des restaurants qui proposent une offre plus intéressant pour le brunch que la Brasserie 701

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Brasserie 701. It has a lovely atmosphere and we loved the decor. Our server, I think her name was Sophia, was lovely and very accomodating, as we had someone who was a bit difficult at our table. The food was very good; the only complaint my partner had was that the portion was a bit small on the mushroom ravioli. I had the burger and it was perfect, just the right size. I didn't feel completely stuffed by the time I was finished. Thanks for a lovely evening!

    Food was tasty. Our server was polite and personable. The biggest disappointment was the kitchen was incredibly and painfully slow. It took an hour for our apps to come out. Our server was apologetic and comped the apps, which was appreciated.

    First, they canceled our reservation because we can’t reserve for 6 people apparently for the terrace . Then they said we don’t have any table available, then we went upstairs to the terrace to see, it’s was empty ….. WTF!!! … I don’t get it.

    There were an adequate number of servers, but they seemed more interested in talking with one another than in serving. We waited a long time before anyone came to our table. The server who came poured water into our glasses while talking with another server and did not even greet us. We reserved a relatively early time for dinner so we could have a standard table rather than a high table or eat at the bar. Regardless, the hostess tried to put us at a high table. We had noted that it was a special occasion (anniversary) on our reservation, but no one mentioned it. In the middle of our time there, our server was changed to someone else. Very disorganized. Food was good but the service really spoiled the meal

    Lorsque nous sommes arrivés nous avons eu la visite d'un serveur pour nous offrir de l'eau mais après 20 minutes j'ai du aller demander à quelqu'un de venir prendre notre commande car je crois qu'on nous avait oublié. Cependant la jeune fille qui nous a servis a été superbe toute au long de notre souper. Voyant qu'elle avait quelque peu de misère à parler français je lui parlait en anglais mais elle insistait pour parler en français ce qui est une belle marque de respect et très apprécié. Alors félicitations à elle pour son super service, je retournais avec plaisir chez vous juste pour son service.

    The restaurant is actually closed between 3PM and 5PM but the opening hours are not updated on the website or on opentable. There are different menus for lunch and dinner, so be careful, because if you once had something for dinner and you liked it, the same dish is different for lunch. Staff could be better, more welcoming, but instead they act as they don't care.

    Unfortunately not the best experience for us at this highly rated restaurant. The room and location is wonderful but the service was poor considering the prices. We had been caught in a torrential downpour on our way over and arrived soaking wet. We asked for some towels to dry off and to sit on so as not to soak the seats for diners arriving after us. Given that the Brasserie is in a hotel this should not have been difficult but it seemed to be. Thus, we sat soaking wet. Do not order the lobster tail risotto. At $45 it was a disappointment mostly due to the soupy black ink risotto that was poorly prepared, overly sloppy and generally flavourless. On a positive note, my partner had the salmon which was cooked perfectly.

    J’y étais pour le brunch, Très bel endroit. Le service est vraiment bien. J’ai été marqué par un serveur Samuel, tout le temps souriant , respectueux et disponible . La nourriture est bonne. Leur benedicte au saumon fumé est excellent par contre mes amis ont commandé le poulet gaufré et sur 3 plats , 2 étaient cramés et immangeables. A par ça tout était beau. Leurs desserts aussi sont très bon. J’y retournerai mais je ne prendrai pas le poulet gaufré 😂.

    I was a little disappointed in the restaurant. I ordered an item which wasn’t available and was only notified a half hour after I placed my order. My friends meal was ready and had to be placed under the hot place until my meal was ready. I have plenty of food intolerances and they weren’t willing to accommodate substitutions. I was so pumped to eat at this restaurant, and sadly did not have a great experience.

    Our experience here was ok. The food was ok, but limited options for breakfast. Both people I was with ordered eggs made to order (one poached regular, one poached hard), but both of their eggs came out the same. When we arrived there were crumbs all over the seats as well but from my understanding they had just opened for the morning so they must have been sitting there a while. Like I said, everything was ok, but for the style and price of the place I’d expect it a bit cleaner, and more attentive to order modification.

    IN 2012 my wife and enjoyed a lovely stay at ther attached Places des Armes Hotel. The meal at Brasserie 701 was a let down. The staff seemed stressed and untrained, which is the fault of management. I am aware that many staff have moved on over the last two difficult years but the quality of food and service did not match the price. At times the staff seemed overwhelmed, which was likely the case.

    Really enjoyed dinner here. The food went beyond expectations. Tried the flank steak, escargots, burger and were all tops. The service was good but there were a few incidences of dropped plates, glasses and red wine. All waiters and waitresses seemed new which is totally acceptable considering the post covid era. Yet all very courteous and professional. I do recommend Brass 701. Location is great, the restaurant is beautiful and the food will impress.
