a very attentive wait staff. The food was delicious and explained to us. And even redone to our liking when one dish on the 7 course meal was not to our liking. Definitely will be going back for all future Montreal trips.

Service was amazing. The manager explained the choices and suggested wines to pair with each meal. Went with the Josper chefs choice meal and every course was better than the last. Can’t forget the amazing donuts for dessert. Always a great time here, leaving perfectly satisfied!

We had the while sea bass and Greek salad. That was perfect for two people because the fish also came with vegetables grown by the restaurant. We sat outside as the air conditioning was a bit cold for us. Great, patient, and friendly staff.

Our best meal in Montreal. We eat a lot of seafood but this was truly memorable. Each dish was well flavored and excellent—we couldn’t stop eating even when we were full! Wait staff was attentive and helpful. Noise level moderate so we could easily converse during our meal. Not in expensive but exceptional overall so worth the money. Would highly recommend!

The place is beautiful but super loud, we had to scream each other all dinner because it was imposible to hear.
They quality of the food was good (The Josper makes a huge difference) but the portions are ridiculously small for the price.
We had the seafood platter and some vegetables and we got 1 scallop and 1 shrimp per person, like really??
Thanks God we were not very hungry...
Definitely way to expressive.

Although not an over-extensive menu, there is no real need.
Would be a good location for groups as conducive to "family-style" eating.
First time here but not the last time.

Always a pleasure ! And I just love the food. If you go there, make sure you have time in front of you. Not because the service is slow, but because I strongly recommend that you order few plates at a time. The waiters often recommend to much plates/portions compare to what you really need.

This is my third time coming here and it was the best. The highlight was the customer service and flexibility. I inquired about an appetizer that wasn't on the menu anymore and the waiter managed to have the kitchen make one. And in general the service was very friendly yet professional. Food was really good. Note that it's worth to pay the extras for some of the Mezze (scalops and Lobster). Good wine selection, obviously some greec wine that should be the focus of your selection. We opted for one of the Assertykos and it wasn't available. However the waiter provided us with a delicious alternative (assertyko as well), that happens to be available at the SAQ.
Not cheap. But overall the type of nice evening that's worth the time and money.

The food was good, but not to die for. The service was too fast for 4 course servings...
( maybe their way of making you spend more). A little bit disappointed as I have been to different fancy restaurants at the oldport, and this one DIDNT GIVE ME THE “ iam definitely coming back here” MOMENT.
