Great food, great service, great ambiance. I am delighted to see the elegance of the old Birks store's architecture preserved and enhanced in it's new iterations, along with nice touchpoints such as the "Birks blue" used in the banquettes. The service was friendly, warm and helpful without being overbearing, and the food was amazing. Highly recommend this place.

The dining room is elegant and vast, beautifully decorated. We had asked for terrasse seating but chose to be inside to avoid street noise, and it was lovely. The service is impeccable, friendly and attentive. Seafood of the freshest possible, the lobster salad was a total hit. I had two evenings in a row at Henri's, and the Salade Henri is also quite fantastic, lardons, poached egg, creamy dressing, all items extra fresh and high quality. Only one down note, no chocolate dessert on the menu.

Une belle brasserie située au centre-ville de Montréal (enfin !), dans une ambiance amicale et chaleureuse. Une carte simple mais bien balancée, agrémentée de quelques bonnes bouteilles. Un service très agréable, avec de belles attentions dont on se souviendra... Bref une adresse à découvrir et à retenir !

Bonjour,

Il serait bien d'ajouter des parasols aux tables sur la terrasse. Ce n'est pas agréable de manger en plein soleil.
Merci. Sinon votre resto est très bien.

Ce fut une agréable soirée. Le service (malgré les visières et masques imposés aux serveurs) fut excellent .

La nourriture servi avec attention à bonne température fut aussi un régal pour nos papilles gustatives.

Un très bon côte du Rhône bio avec ça pour couronner le tout .

Bravo

Parfaite mise en place des mesures dues au Covid, même si il est particulier au début de se faire servir avec une personne avec masque et visière, le niveau de confort par rapport à la sécurité est très apprécié. La nourriture était excellente et le service très professionnel.

Perfect setting with Covid measures, even if it can be at the beginning a bit weird to be served by personnel with mask and visor, make you feel very safe and comfortable and has been very much appreciated. Food was delicious and very professional service.

Very nice place...
limited brunch choices...
scrabbled eggs with truffle $22
I think I had an egg barely no truffle taste could have been hotter and made to look more appetizing.
(Commented to server, she never came back to our table)
The lemon crepes $16 very nicely presented and good taste.
Disappointed they tried to charge for coffee at a brunch...

Excellent food and exceptional service (merci Raphaëlle!) on a unique, historic location. The smoked salmon appetizer and scallops main dish were perfectly prepared. We had an excellent bottle of wine recommended from a very extensive private importation list. It is a classy, quiet space, music not too loud, you can hear yourself talk.
