The place is beautiful, value is OK. Food was OK although presentation lacked lustre. Sat at the bar, in a festive mood but landed on a Barman that lacked personality. Although there was a charming French waiter who recommended frog legs. Was a hit and added a little fun to the night.

Order the orzo with mussels and clams for lunch. The clams and mussels were so tiny and dried up I could even open them up to eat them and if I managed to they were hard to pull out from their shell. Awful dining experience!! Food was not good !

Beautiful place. I don't like fish or seafood and that is what is mostly on the menu. What I have had there is always good, not awesome. However, this is the most beautiful restaurant in Montreal. Trendy, but I went with my elderly parents and they loved the chic feel.

Very cold, somewhat short and rude service. We didn’t feel welcomed, and were definitely not well-welcomed. Spent close to $1000 on an Sunday afternoon lunch, as we love our wine, for a party of four. We would of have expected a curtous service for the very least.

La serveuse impeccable mais la lenteur des plats, trop d’ecarts entre les plats
J’ai réservé 2 semaines avant et le choix de notre table n’était Pas à la hauteur, coincés contre un mûr
La prochaine fois je préciserai l’emplacement De la table
Aussi le menu envoyé par le web la journée avant ne correspondait pas au menu du jour
On reviendra un autre jour de semaine plutôt qu’à une Fête des mères
Le lieu est magnifique !

Le decor de la salle est à couper le souffle! A voir absolument! Le plat choisi ce soir là, fletan à partager à 2. Presenté très très (trop) simplement. Avec panko, qui garde habituellement l’humidité du poisson. Mais nous avons reçu un poisson sec. Mais tout de même bon. Donc pour 55$@2. Sans accompagnement. Nous avons commandé la cassolette de légumes qui etait vraiment excellente. Le service courtois mais un peu rapide. Pas eu le temps de déposer mon verre de champagne que le serveur passait le prendre, et hop!. Il a aussi pris la coupe de mon conjoint alors qu’il n’avait pas terminé. Et lui a demandé, toujours la flûte en main (!!), « terminé? ». Euh, non! Pourquoi cette urgence. Est venu nous demander si nous aimions l’entrée, qui etait déjà terminée lorsqu’il est passé, donc trop tard pour se préoccuper sincèrement de son client.
Mais nous y retournerons, à l’heure du lunch ou le soir.

Nourriture très bonne mais quelques légumes pour accompagner le plat de viande et pommes de terres auraient été bienvenus dans l'assiette. Chaises inconfortables et banquettes trop basses par rapport à la table et sans soutien dorsal. Beau décor et sympathique ambiance.

Accueil froid. une fois attablé, aucun serveur et apres 15minutes d'attente nous sommes allés demander à l'avant pour avoir un serveur.
repas mauvais avec des fruits de mers non cuits. La serveuse n`étant jamais revenu nous voir apres le service ne là jamais su alors nous n'avons pas pu manger plus de la moitié de notre repas.
Nous a dit je vais voir ce que je peux faire et finalement nous a envoyé un confrère avec la note finale sans plus. (rabais,explication ou autres choses.)
Très décu car nous attendions ce resto depuis longtemps.
Pire service et resto à vie je crois.

Nice place to dine. Food was good. Would go again to give them another chance and see as i rated them 3/5. I went there to celebrate a friend's birthday and informed them before I went about the occasion by phone. They did nothing and forgot about this altogether. A small touch as other restaurants do would have been nice.

Nous avons commandé la salade grec vraiment????? 8.00 $ pour une olive et un peu de salade...le plateau de fruits de mer: les crevettes étaient bonnes 3, les oursins à moitié vide à 8.00 $ chaque, les huitres étaient extrêmement petites 6 seulement, le homard, les bigorneaux et coquillages corrects, le tout
125.00 $. La totale 275.00 $ pour un lunch très ordinaire. Maintenant il a fallut demander du pain et des ustensiles à plusieurs reprises. Je suis très déçue. Le décors est magnifique, le staff courtois mais le service et la bouffe à repenser. Monter les prix s'il le faut ou changer votre menu.
