Everything from start to finish was amazing! The cocktails are addictive and the food is delicious!! Best fried calamari I have ever had with an incredible dipping sauce! The service was outstanding, was served by multiple people but Ilene is a true master of customer service, she’s warm hearted, friendly and funny! She regularly checked up and made sure we were enjoying our evening! Would definitely visit again!!

Great neighborhood gem in a fun location. My guest and I love seafood, and we were not disappointed! The oysters were oh, so fresh.... the mussels delicious, and the scallops quite tasty. Highly recommend if you love seafood.

Surprised and disappointed. Booked on Open Table indicating it was for a special occasion which was never mentioned or acknowledged by the staff. Restaurant was full but clearly not adequately staffed. Staff seemed stressed and unhappy. Unfortunately presentation, service and quality have gone down. Used to be much better.

Came by Maestro Svp for my husband’s birthday. It was our first time. Honestly, everything was delicious. A tad pricey but very good. The waiter was extremely kind and tentative. The food was delicious and extremely fresh. Although our reservations were at 7pm and we left at 10:30pm, we were never rushed out. And to top it all off, our waiter overheard us speaking about my husbands birthday at the very end of the evening and he surprised us all by coming out with a bowl of ice cream & some candles! (Hello brownie points). We will definitely be back.

This well-established restaurant on Boulevard St-Laurent specializes in seafood and in particular, oysters (see picture: oyster menu on a blackboard) – freshly shucked oysters on the half shell. The “Happy Hour” Special (see another picture) -- $20 for a dozen of east coast Beausoleil is a great deal. The oysters’ mild, briny, pure and simple flavour is a great way to kick-start a beautiful seafood dinner.

The décor is intimate and simple.

Baked Crab Cakes with citrus sauce: delicious.

Louisiana mixed seafood, white wine & Cajun spice reduction: fresh, substantial and aromatic. The sauce / broth was super-satisfying.

Ilene, the owner, must have had a long night and was rather reticent. She was more engaging in previous visits.

A recommended restaurant for seafood lovers.

First time at this restaurant. We were looking for a place for mussels and discovered Maestro SVP on OpenTable. Lovely restaurant - charming owner. The food was really good - from the tartar and Caesar salad to the mussels. Although the mussels were on the small side - they were tasty and the tomato sauce was delicious. So good we’re returning tomorrow friends!

Eileen who served us knew exactly what we needed and brought everything with perfect timing. I especially appreciated how she accommodated our style; she modified the menu quantities etc, to allow us a platter experience without feeling overwhelmed. The music was too loud but not quite loud enough to warrant out intervention. A lovely time!! We'll return for sure. Excellent value for the expense - kiff-kiff.

Nice dinner overall. Richard started with the Calamari, which was very nice. Only issue was the batter fell off at times, but the flavor was good. I had the Clam Chowder, which was just right. Really hate the chowders these days that are like porridge. This one was chock full of clams. For mains, Richard had the Louisiana seafood, which was like a bouillabaisse. Lots of flavor. Could have used a few more other items besides the mussels, of which there was a ton. I had the Lobster Thermidore, which was excellent. My only complaint was the fact it was "barely" a pound Lobster & it cost me $68!! True, it was "market" price, but being in the food industry I know the Lobster prices lately. Geesh! Talk about highway robbery! My fault for not asking the price, but though the food was very good, it wasn't worth that price! Staff, however were a total delight & they run a tight ship there.

Second time eating here. Lively spot. Great oyster selection although a bit pricey at $5 per. Enjoyed the tresor du large oysters from Iles de la Madeleine (spelled incorrectly on the board, interestingly). Chipotle encrusted tuna was very flavorful and nicely presented but a bit sinewy. Overall very good.
