    Une cuisine élaborée comme du fast food avec des produits qui n’ont pas l’air frais , ou qui manque de goût . C’est dommage nous avons payés uniquement pour le cadre et non pour la nourriture qui ne valait pas le prix indiqué.

    Cet endroit est magnifique à voir et à s'y trouver, mais bien trop bruyant! Le brunch était exquis... le meilleur à Montréal Pas de chichi pour commander: on vous amène une assiette bien garnie avec le plat que vous avez choisi.

    Went for brunch with my cousin. I got the Avo Toast but I found the bread really tough even though I used a knife to cut it. It tasted good and the portion size was great. My cousin ordered the salmon Benny which she loved, it was her fave meal of her trip. We also tried the blueberry scones which were a little dry and too crumbly. Service was excellent.

    Went for brunch. The food was no better than what you'd get at a chain restaurant. Had the Eggs Benedict and it made me wish I just went to McDonald's for a McMuffin. Will not be going back.

    Had brunch at Brasserie 701 with friends who "love" the hotel Place d'Armes and have stayed there frequently. Staff were very pleasant and room is handsome. We found the menu unexciting with standard eggs benedict, etc. I ordered chicken and waffles with a glass of wine, asking the waiter for a wine suggestion based on my food choice. The food gave the impression that it had been prepared at least a day in advance–chicken was dry and waffles were not made on the spot as I had expected. They were cold and doughy. Two fried eggs came with, and these were undercooked with the whites still transparent and runny. However, the great shock came when we got our bills and discovered that we had each been charged $32 for a glass of wine. I seldom spend that much on a bottle at the SAQ! We were told that the wines were special and mine was certainly very good. Nonetheless, diners should be advised of the "specialness" in advance. I would have stuck with coffee or a mimosa, or we could've ordered a bottle for the table to share. With a sub-standard meal and what struck us as outrageous pricing for the wine, none of us will go back or recommend it to friends.

    It was my first time. The place is incredibly nice, very elegant decoration. The food was amazing: tuna tartar, tiger shrimp, pork tenderloin and crème brûlée. Delicious! I liked the tall tables. The waiters are very polite. Loved every second. The fact of its location at Old Montreal is a plus, as well.

    Attention : Le menu au restaurant n'était pas le même que celui affiché sur le site de Montréal à table. L'option végétarienne n'était plus disponible, une fois rendu sur place. Après plusieurs longues explications avec le serveur et la maître d'hôtel, ils ont fini par nous accommoder. Ce matin, l'option est encore sur le menu en ligne et je m'inquiète pour les personnes végétariennes qui vont se rendre sur place pour rien. Le plat de doré d'une des personnes qui nous accompagnait était plein d'arêtes (plus d'une dizaine) et l'entrée de crevettes était mal cuite (la crevette était encore bleue). La crème brûlée était bonne au goût, mais complètement liquide parce qu'elle avait été chauffée trop longtemps.

    Prix horriblement chers pour les assiettes fournies, crevettes et poissons pas cuits (Montréal à table). J'avais également réservé une table avec chaises standard et nous avons été placés avec chaises en hauteur. Niveau de bruit difficile, musique trop forte. Il y a vraiment de l'amélioration à faire dans les restaurants en général : ce n'est pas parce qu'on est obligé d'hurler dans l'oreille de son voisin que la soirée est bonne et l'ambiance extra..

    The menu for Mtl à Table on site in the restaurant was not as advertised online. Instead of the 3 choices offered online, we were offered 2 choices on site. Had we known this, we would of chosen another Mtl à Table restaurant that offered more variety. The food was quite ordinary. The desert of crème brulée was delicious. The 2nd course of 2 jumbo shrimp was very bland...asking the waiter for a slice a lemon helped to improve the taste.
