we really enjoyed the late night menu
there were a couple of distinguishing factors the first one was that the late night menu option starts at
9pm versus most other options which stat at 10pm

the salmon tartar and bagette was outstanding as was the ambiance

also really enjoyed there desert the fondant aux chocolat

truly recommend you try there late night menu great food for a great price in a beautiful setting

Nous y sommes allé à Noël et l'expérience fut ok. La nourriture était bonne mais le service n'était pas à la hauteur de la facture et de l'endroit. Pas très rôdé, manque d'expérience dans certains cas et manque de pacing entre les services

C’est la 4 e fois que je viens mais cette fois ci , le service était très lent malgré que le restaurent était à 20 % de sa capacité. Frites servies froides. Facture de 1000 $ pour 8 personnes. Je me serais attendus à un peu plus qualité/prix.
Les + : belle ambiance
Les huîtres excellentes
Pains très frais .

Je retournerais davantage au Chasse et pêche dans le vieux montreal ou l’Atelier de Joël Robuchon au casino

Sat at the bar, which was set like a table complete with linens. Enjoyed a nice steak frites and some wine. Atmosphere was relaxed, service was on point, and food was quite good. Overall a relaxing meal in a French bistro-themed restaurant prior to catching a concert.

Not a regular but have been there often enough to be a bit disappointed on this visit. Got use to the $27 menu with 3 or 4 choices but now changed. Food was warm not hot. Probably a bit of an off day but experience won't dissuade me from returning.

Had the lunch menu which was 27$ .
Took the soup, salmon tartare 8$+. Included dessert/coffee.
For the price I though the food was just ok.
Since this is my first time I will need to try something else on the menu to judge of the quality for their menu.
Service was good.

I was pleased overall with the event... I say event because I tried to make sure that a bottle of Champagne was ready and waiting for us. I made the request on the web site 2 or 3 days prior but got no response. I called the restaurant on the day of the meal and arranged the service.
Upon being led to the table, the bottle sat in the ice bucket for close to 10 minutes before the server opened it... the effect was lost. Too bad.

Always have a great meal. One of our favourite neighbourhood restaurants! Food is delicious, we love the charcuterie board for sharing (meat and cheese), and the meatballs and the zucchini! ALL the pastas are so good! The service is friendly and the atmosphere is fun and buzzy! If the tiramisu ever makes it back on the menu, that is the best dessert ever!! (note to restaurant...please bring it back!!!)

I got the MTL a table menu and had their canard confit. It was absolutely delicious, tender and moist. Their oysters were fresh, the bread is delicious, and my entree and dessert were also good. While their regular menu is a bit pricey, I would reccomend it highly to anyone wanting to celebrate a special occasion. I hope to go back!

Went here for brunch and had an amazing time
Was warmly greeted by the front hostess as well as our server when we got seated . The ambiance is very Parisian in there so we totally liked the vibe. The food was very tasty and our mimosas were on point . The chocolate mouse was delish!

L'assiette de fruit de mer fut impeccable, tant par le choix et la cuisson de chacune des composantes que pour la formidable présentation de l'assiette. L'objectif d'offrir des saveurs traditionnelles davantage que créatives fut atteint.
PS le chanteur Crooner qui se promenait aux tables (sans opportuner quiconque) fut aussi bien agréable.

Somme toute, une excellente soirée !!
