The Web site does not mention a wine list, only the house wine. For this reason, we brought our own wine. The Waiter said we could not drink it so we ordered off the wine list.

I had the tomahawk pork chop. Too salty! My wife had the leg of lamb. Too much sauce on both.

My wife and I each had an appetizer, an entre, 1 bottle of sparkling wine, 1 bottle of wine ($52) and 1 dessert. The total cost before tax and gratuity was $206. Not great value for the quality of the meal.

Very good French cuisine restaurant. There is a small discount if you book after 21:00 hres, which helps digest the bill!

food was excellent except the mashed potatoes (dry and tasteless). Recommend the "house wine" and fish of the day. The pate de fois / duck mousse was unbelievable !

French bistro with an expensive old fashioned menu. Went for lunch for business. Patrons are elderly and well to do which makes for a “special” atmosphere.
Honestly, it is nothing special and I prefer Leméac.

Un petit rien, car tout le reste était parfait.
Mais j'ai pris la raie et j'étais un peu déçue de ne pas avoir la recette traditionnelle, câpres etc....
Même si on m'a bien décrit le plat. J'en ai pris , car j'en mange très rarement et j'adore ce poisson, qui avait une cuisson parfaite...mais un peu fade comme goût.
Comme vous faîtes de la bonne cuisine, surtout traditionnelle, qu'on a tellement de misère à retrouver, SVP, garder la recette traditionnelle pour votre plat. C'est ce qu'on recherche quand on va chez vous.
Merci à vous

Food and service good as usual but fries were disappointing and liver portions were too large. Also, price increases and lack of a table d'hôte before 21h make dining here much more expensive than before covid.

Service trop expéditif (rush) même à la terrasse. Les serveurs font beaucoup de bruit en empilant les assiettes sales dans les bacs ce qui peut-être dérangeant. Le serveur a retiré rapidement l'assiette de mon invitée sans lui demander si elle avait terminé ou pas. Le serveur a demandé à mon invitée si elle désirait autre chose en m'ignorant totalement. Ai rappelé le serveur qui a mis un verre vide sur la table et 8 minutes plus tard un autre serveur a apporté un autre verre avec le Perrier citron que j'avais commandé. En quittant, j'ai requis le détail de MON addition et Tristan m'a transmis l'addition de la personne qui m'accompagnait...!!!

P.-S. Nous sommes bien au fait qu'il y a une pénurie de personnel qualifié mais il arrive de se demander si certains serveurs n'ont pas fait leur formation chez McDonald.

The waiter barely considered us. Throwing menus and leaving. Another staff member gave us our meals. Our waiter never came to check if the food was to our satisfaction. He didn’t look at us when taking our order, he was so impatient talking to us. At first, I told me friend that maybe the waiter is having a bad day and let’s forget about his unwelcoming attitude. But then....... we noticed that service to all the other tables from the same waiter was totally different: he was welcoming, checking on their food, neatly placing their menus ans silverware on the table. He had a totally different attitude with all other tables. Is it because we look “young” and so don’t deserve the same respect? Maybe he thought we don’t deserve the same respect because younger couples are maybe less comfortable financially? What was the reason? To make it clear: my friend and I are both highly educated, very comfortable financially, very polite, but are both from ethnic backgrounds. Was this the reason????
