Sasha, our server, saved the dinner. While our steaks were tender, they were under seasoned. Sides were boring. Appetizers were hit and miss, but do recommend the caesar salad and gazpacho. Extensive wine list, and once again Sasha's wine recommendations saved the day.

Did not have two of the five steak options on the menu. During a slow period, this is somewhat surprising. Had to order inferior cut. Waiter did not know what “Chicago style” cook is. For what is supposed to be the 2nd best steakhouse in Montreal (as per Tripadvisor) that is surprising and unacceptable. Not a good experience overall.

I was having great expectations for this place, but unfortunately, it was a deceiving experience. The food has a good taste but nothing different of other good bistros in Montreal, I found the portions very small and the brunch wasn't offering different options rather than the classic brunch. Expensive and Overate it

We went there for brunch, and the food was uninspired. The french toast was essentially regular toast. The crêpes were a tiny portion for the price. The eggs benedict was fine (nothing special), but the bacon was rubbery.

Service was poor overall. Servers weren't attentive, except for water refills.

Waitor should just pour the coffee/water in the cup/glass without using his bare hands to lift the cup/glass and therefore putting his fingers on the place where I am about to drink.

Service was poor, if you have your glass of water empty for more than 10mins, there is an issue.
The food was very basic, we were there for brunch. First of all, they did not have the chicken and waffles breakfast option, what-they ran out of chicken or batter to make waffles on an early Saturday morning. then the food came, frozen over seasoned potatoes. My friends bacon felt like it was cooked the dy before. Overall nice restaurant but can finitely improve on service and food quality.

Nourriture excellente et variée .
Un seul point nous étions 2 , il y avait de la place un peut partout de disponible, mais il on placé un autre couple de 2 directement coller sur nous . C’est pas grave mais c’était une table de 4 il aurait pu les mettre du côté opposé de la table au lieu des coller ..

Service excellent de vos serveurs merci pour cette soirée.

Nous avons été déçu de la qualité du brunch. Annonce de pomme de terre rissolées avec fruits pour toute assiette. Nous nous sommes retrouvés avec des frites congelées et 3 petits morceaux de fruits. Nous avons eu des œufs bénédictines trop cuit (limite œuf dur). Connaissant la qualité des plats pour le dîner et le souper nous nous attendions a beaucoup mieux.

Great location and pretty decor. Unfortunately I ordered a coffee twice and never received it until we were leaving for take away. Seemed they were not great at dealing with being busy. Also the food was pretty basic and not that tasty. Truthfully I never write reviews and felt the need to say skip this place.

Came to Maggie Oakes for Happening Gourmand in February for the $17 brunch. Unfortunately, they were out of the chicken & waffles which was the main reason why I wanted to go to this place. We ordered the French toast and the avocado toast which were fresh and tasty. We also got a smoothie to start, as well as an assortment of pastries, and finished the meal with a cheesecake. The brunch deal was great and very worth it! The OpenTable app also made booking a reservation so easy.

We had a great waitress named Fannie, her timing and etiquette was amazing. We enjoyed the ambiance and the music, comfortable seating, and dim lighting.

The Entrées were quite good, but the mains a bit disappointing in that they were not on par with our expectations in this ambiance.
Example, my steak/frites came with basic ketchup and the fries were kind of basic.

But, all in all quite decent.
