Very good food but not enough in the plate, may be a little salad will complete.
The music was a little bit to loud.
Nevertheless, it was a very nice time et the service was perfect.

We waited an hour for one plate of pancake and the restaurant wasn’t even crowded. A couple behind us that arrived 10 min after us got a ton of food within 30 min. We left before the food arrived because we were out of time. They apologized but they charged us for the coffee (I would have offered it if I were the manager).

We will not go back.

The decoration of the restaurant was wonderful and the ambience was quiet and relaxing.

The help diners were polite and gave me all the informatios that I wanted to know so I

could choose my dish. The limonade was excellent and refreshing. The baby lettuce salad

with chicken was delicious. I will return there for sure.

Beautiful restaurant. We were excited to try the new holt cafe. But the food was very disappointing. Had the burger who was heavy but flavorless and very plain. My wife had the avocado tartinade (tart) and was also very disappointed by it.

Service was slow. The place wasn’t full at all but who know why we couldn’t find our waiter and get water or simple service like expected.

Hopefully it will improve over time and we will probably give it a second chance.

This visit was mixed overall. Drink was refilled promptly without hesitation but the entree was not prepared as requested. I had requested my order be cooked well and instead it was undercooked. A mention to the waiter revealed he had turned in the order as requested. Perhaps the holiday rush was responsible for the mistake. Salad was overwhelmed with too much dressing.

The server did not wait for is to complete what we needed to ask her. We were the only ones in the restaurant and it was not busy. She seemed to just want to get ud in and out quickly. The food was a little disappointing for being at Holt Renfrew. Very different from the same restaurant in Toronto.

On this visit I opted for beef croquettes which were outstanding. This was an interesting dish served with vegetables and an egg over easy.

The dessert offerings were equally good as were the fresh berries that I ordered.

Despite not being very busy one of our dishes was delivered 15 minutes after the rest of the meal. The salads were very fresh and delicious. Our server spilled water on the glass table top every single time he poured the water.
