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.

C’était vraiment bien , très belle accueille en arrivant .
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.

Pas de lait écrémée pour le Latte.. Menu n’est pas clair; est-ce que table d’hote Inclus les patates ? 1ère latte que nous avons reçu n’était pas chaud. Le serveur est revenu avec un autre Latte qui n’était pas plus chaud. Nous avons demandé à réchauffer notre café avec du café américain (nous avons dû le demander 2 fois car le serveur avait oublié. Nourriture ( omelette au chasseur) était très average...pour 17$, je me serais attendu à mieux. Le serveur se trompait continuellement lorsqu’il apportait nourriture (nous étions 4). L’ambiance était bonne. Le restaurant est bien situé et très joli.

Food was very good, service was a bit slow but friendly. Music was the worst and was too loud. Still for the price, good food with reasonable portion. But please, change your top 40 hiphop from the 90s loud music. It’s not a bar.

Un restaurent avec un look si incroyable, une réputation élevé je n'ai pas trouvé que c'était à la hauteur de mes attentes. Si je reçois une soupe à l'entrée et que je n'ai pas de pain c'est pour moi décevant. Le bruit d'ambiance est tellement élevé qu'il était difficile pour moi et ma fiancée d'avoir une belle discussion ! Mais, c'est un restaurent vraiment d'une grande beauté ! J'ajoute qu'un peu plus de choix à la carte pour les gens végétarien serait un plus car, je suis végétarien ainsi que ma conjointe. En espérant que cette critique pourra vous être utile bien que généralement les critiques tombent rapidement dans les oubliettes lorsqu'un restaurant fonctionne déjà bien !

Great bar service before we sat at our table. The drink suggestion was great by the bartender. The hostess was very attentive and professional. Only problem was the music, great selection but the volume would go up very high and then brought down and back up again and this went on for most of the night. Overall, great experience !

I had made a reservation for my boyfriend and I’s 11th anniversary which I mentioned in the comments section of my reservation. Not only did our waiter acknowledge this, but did his best to make our evening special. He offered me 3 more ounces of wine at no extra charge, placed a sparkler in my dessert and brought two other wait staff over to wish us a happy anniversary. We felt spoiled, it was great.
And the food, it was delicious and perfectly portioned. The restaurant was quite comfortable and fashionably modern with tasteful decorations In the beautiful setting of Old Montreal You couldn’t ask for better. The only down side was that I could not read the menu for lack of light, I noticed that others had to use their cell phones’ light just to read the menu too.
All in all, a wonderful evening, I certainly do not regret my choice of restaurant. I would definitely return and recommend to others.
Thank you for making our evening so special.
