    Very nice restaurant, very nice atmosphere, excellent service, super good food. It's on the expensive side (I went at lunch time). It can be surprising if you don't look at the menu beforehand. The architecture of the building is quite astonishing!

    Good meal. Good atmosphere. Relatively quiet but it was not completely full on a Monday night. A little pricey for what I ordered, $29 for a regular hamburger with fries and small salad.

    Food as good but pricey. Waiter served us well. Disappointed that they couldn't accommodate one more person to our table (reserved for 4 but couldn't do 5) which was important for me as they indicated that all tables are fully booked and that there would be no space. Throughout the evening, the restaurant was less than 50% occupied.

    Ambiance was sophisticated and quiet allowing conversation with those at our table. The food was superb and original in presentation, ingredients and taste. Although the food and drinks came with reasonable delay teh service during the meal was neglectful. No one came to ask if all was to our liking when teh meals had been served, we had to pour our own wine until the Maitre saw and took over, wine only came to the table 20 minutes after it was ordered. A guest asking for mayonnaise waited well into their meal before it arrived, and there were insufficient dessert menus. Although I know staffing issues continue to be an issue in the restaurant industry the importance of adequate staff to ensure the high standards of this establishment should be a priority.

    Went there for New Year’s Eve, absolutely disappointing. They charged the triple of other restaurants for a really mundane meal. Waitress tried to be pleasant but too inexperienced for me to remark anything. This place is run by crooks, don’t go there.

    Food was great. However, our waiter was a little bit all over the place. He tried to take our plates twice when we were not even finished eating, which was disturbing our dinner and a bit irritsating. Also, I made the reservation online and specifically asked for them to do a little something special for my mother’s birthday. I had to call the day of in advance to ask again and during the dinner I had to tell the waiter one more time to make sure that they were aware, and lucky I asked because no one was made aware in advance…. All in all, food and ambiance was great and location was beautiful, but service was not worth the price. Don’t think I will be returning…

    The brasserie is in a lovely setting, it is the restaurant for the Birks Hotel. Staff are welcoming and pleasant. The menu is very brief, and very expensive, not surprisingly as the entire place is in the Birks building(Birks is the Canadian equivalent of Tiffany’s). Service was very slow. The food was not exceptional, considering the price .

    Superbe resto, mais les plats n’étaient pas à la hauteur des prix élevés (par exemple, la soupe était froide) et le service était moyen (bien que fort cordial). Par ailleurs, même si je comprends fort bien les raisons qui les poussent à agir ainsi, je n’apprécie pas leur recours à une politique illégale en cas d’annulation dans les 48 dernières heures (il est interdit de prélever 50$ par personne comme ils le font). Par ailleurs, ce 150$ ne nous a toujours pas été remboursé.

    The restaurant is located in the Birk's building which, since 2018, houses a boutique hotel and the restaurant which is located on the ground floor has retained the original ornate architectural style of the late 1880s A great place to eat, bistro style; very good service.

    The creme brulée wasn't the best. It had a funny aftertaste. The bread wasn't fresh, only reheated. The cheese and caviar was good.
