Small portions, great food. Fish was a touch overcooked, but tasty. Burrata gnocci was incredible. We were placed upstairs near the payment terminal so felt a bit secluded, but great ambiance at the restaurant overall.
Service impeccable, nourriture délicieuse, portions généreuses!
La musique (DJ sur place) est forte mais excellente, belle ambiance et on a pris un verre après le souper au bar. Nous allons retourner c’est certain!!
Food and ambiance were 💯 the octopus was out of this world delicious. But what made our experience over the top awesome was our waiter Sam. He was friendly, knowledgeable, funny and professional. Give this man a raise he's worth every $!
Ambiance and location was great! Food was disappointing. Over salted and over priced
Great food. Music was a little aggressive and loud for Sunday evening
Just finished our diner at Elefante and it was amazing. Great food, excellent service from our server Alain and this place was very nice. A hidden gem. Worth trying and we will be back!
Food was delicious and amazing!!!
We loved it! Best food, service and ambiance!
The food was tasted bland in general. The service was not too bad, very friendly and nice staff but a bit slow. For the price we paid, the food was very disappointing.
EVERYTHING ON THE MENU IS EXCELLENT!
The food is delicious no matter what you take, drinks are well made. Live DJ playing the best songs. Service is great.
Cant ask for better!!
One of the best spots in Montreal
We checked out Elefante and the food was outstanding, especially the gnocchi and the burrata. Marco our server was super friendly and knowledgeable!
We had an amazing time at Elefante. Thank you for the amazing service from the whole team, our waiter Samuel was outstanding and food was great. I strongly recommend this place
Amazing! Would return. Great food and service
Food was delicious and the vibe was definitely upbeat and vibrant. Staff was great!
Great Service, good ambiance & food
The vibe and service here is amazing! But some of the food isn’t worth the price and kind of disappointing. Although the food arrived really quickly it unfortunately was lukewarm. The Pizza Burrata, Filet Mignon Carpaccio, and Spicy Rigatoni Vodka were amazing, but the gnocchi was extremely disappointing to say the least - super bland and the tiny serving size is definitely a good reason to pass on spending almost $40
Open table had an old menu! Things were a lot less on the new menu , so we were really disappointed.
The restaurant ambience wasn’t great…noisy and we got seated upstairs The service was stellar. Our server was amazing! Our entrees were also good
Thought we booked inside, but we were herded outside. Both our plates came out COLD. Not warm, but darn cold.
We had a reservation for 9:30pm and we were only sat at 10:30. We weren't even sat at a table, we were sat at the bar, which was very crammed and very unpleasant. When making a reservation at a restaurant, without specifying you want the bar, it should automatically be a table that you're given. We were extremely disappointed as we were told at 9:45pm that our table was "being cleaned" and again at 10:15pm that our table "was being cleaned" which was both not true. It is ridiculous to have a reservation at 9:30pm and to only be sat at 10:30pm and not even be given a table! Instead the crammed bar! We only got a table at 11:00pm. We were starving and kept being told that the people sitting at our table wouldn't leave. Don't overbook your restaurant!!!! What's the point of having a reservation?! The staff was accommodating however and provided us with free drinks which was nice but management has to be improved along with the overbooking. Food was alright, decent italian.
Dined here last night and I am still trying to understand the hype on this restaurant. The seating arrangement is crammed (very strange layout) and especially in Covid times this restaurant does not seem to be taking any precautions. No distancing whatsoever between different parties. The bar area was crammed with people. I have been dining at other restaurants since Covid and have not had this issue. In addition, staff is not wearing masks at all times, serving dishes without masks, etc.. The food was very mediocre and expensive for was it was. We had the spicy rigatoni and the burrata pizza (very ok-nothing special in my opinion). The music was way too loud making it impossible to have any conversation without yelling. Overall, I did not enjoy my experience at this restaurant and truly believe it is one of those restaurant's that is overrated. Save your money and go elsewhere, there are plenty of better restaurants in MTL :)
Probably the worst dining experience possible in Montreal. We had two octopus dishes, one was charred and tasted disgusting - the chef, in his opinion, apparently thought it was fine!! 😂 We then had 3 pasta dishes and a pizza. Three dishes came out cold, lukewarm for one dish. The mac and cheese actually had the same sauce as the tomato rigatoni - something is off there! Our server was good but wasn’t able to speak to his management or try to accommodate us. The only thing that was good was our wine, which was basically because the restaurant couldn’t ruin that!
Don’t waste time or money in this place, the food is of poor quality and the service in general is highly disappointing.
The service was excellent. The food was delicious, however we were quite disappointed by their pizza. We had the truffle pizza, it lacked of taste and the bottom was extremely soggy. The truffle Mac and cheese however, is a must: absolutely phenomenal.
The service was amazing, I forget the name of our server, but he was very tall with dark hair. He was very charismatic making sure we were taken care of the whole night despite having a large section to take care of.
The music and ambience were also amazing. There was a large party nearby so was a little loud, but that is understandable and does not take away from the review.
The food was very good, however, slightly expensive. Would come back for a special occasion.
Excellent service ! Je recommande les pâtes au homard.
Bon mais service trop rapide / expéditif et très bruyant
Food was amazing and our server was very professional and kind! I would highly recommend!
Service impeccable, menu qui a l’air délicieux, nous avions envi de tout essayer. Nous reviendrons définitivement pour essayer les pizzas qui avaient l’air succulente. Les boulettes de nonna et les pâtes caccio and Pepe a l’huile de truffe étaient délicieuses. La pieuvre était en partie un peu trop brûlée, mais la présentation était parfaite et le reste de l’assiette était très bonne.
tellement salé pololoooooo
The ambiance of the restaurant was very cool and trendy. Although the salmon appetizer was very good our meal was mediocre for the price.
I had higher expectations.
The food was excellent! We shared the spicy rigatoni and the truffle pizza. Yum!
They changed the menu, very limited, I ordered spicy rigatoni it wasn’t spicy at all and there was some type of vegetable wasn’t sure what it was since it wasn’t written on the menu. they sat us on the second floor ,no ambience it felt like I was sitting in a closet near a washroom while the downstairs was happening and had music. It’s like we where secluded from the restaurant. This was my first time and last time. I was definitely not impressed.
Nourriture et service étaient bons mais la musique trop forte ma compagne et moi n’avons pas pu avoir une conversation pendant plus de 2 heures .. le temps du repas… Dommage .. très dommage..?pas sûr que nous retournerons ETK en fin de semaine
OMG the food are so good, I have to come back to eat all the menu. 🤩
Un bel accueil, de la nourriture de qualité. Une belle découverte.
The food was not fresh and
Impressed with the food. I had the filet mignon and it was delicious. My friend is vegan and they made her a vegan pasta that was off the menu that she really enjoyed.
Great food. Great service
