    Although they are noted for their aged steaks, it was an unsatisfactory experience. I expected that the steak would be cooked at a very high heat to get that great char and smoke. There was some of that, but the steak was IMHO not to the standards of a high end mid west American steak house. A little disappointing. Wine selection was great. Drinks were mixed expertly. Staff was overwhelming in their appropriate attention level. (I don't like to be smothered, but I expect service. It was perfect)

    I really appreciated the service. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the young man’s name, who was doing the omelettes around 2pm. He went beyond what was expected in 2 occasions. Please let him know he made our beunch special that day.

    We were at Maggie Oaks for Mother’s Day brunch. The food was excellent and service was good although a little slow ( probably due to the number of customers). I recommend this place.

    I celebrated a birthday with my spouse on Saturday before Mother's Day here. I found the restaurant was not what I had expected considering doing the research before we had attended that day. Both of our meals had raw vegetables that were hardly grilled. Both plates also contained a steak, which was cooked as we both requested. Just expected a different ambiance, considering this restaurant came very well rated. I felt it wasn't quite as advertised. We somewhat enjoyed the experience, but we both feel it's not deserving of returning for another meal as we felt it wasn't quite as advertised.

    We visited there for our birthday party and they welcome us perfectly. They gave us a cozy place and the food was great. The service was perfect and the waitress was super attentive to our needs. Her name was Amilie G. I highly recommended this place and if you are lucky you will be served by Amilia 😊

    We had dinner last night with my wife. They accommdate us for a later hour since my wife was delayed and I am truely greatful for that. Staff were kind, professional and informative. Drinks were made to perfection. Biggest dissappointment was the chef. Chef just has no idea how to make a steak. I requested a NY strip medium rare with chicago style crust. Steak was very lightly seasoned, blue-rare and medium crust with no finishing salt and butter on it. Chef screwed up the steak big time. I cant understand why they don't use Sous Vide method or grilling with internal thermometer for consistency in result? I make my own steaks and I know how to cook a steak and have a very hard time understanding some of these restaurants with good qulity dry aged meat but screwing up the very last steps which are SEASONING, COOKING and FINISHING PROPERLY. I will not recommend this restaurant to someone who really knows steak but if you are going for seafood or chicken...etc, go for it. Again thanks to the servers and the bartender. Message to the owner: BUY SOUS VIDE EQUIPMENT OR INTERNAL MEAT THERMOMETER FOR YOUR CHEFS.

    We dined out for five days in Old Montreal and Maggie Oakes was my favourite of all. The steaks were fantastic and one of my friends had yummy salmon. Go for the garlic mash potatoes. The best ever chocolate carmel was divine. Emille was a fantastic server who was knowledgeable and friendly. She made great recommendations. Cool vibe!

    This dining experience was surprisingly awful. Our reservation was at 7pm, and we were ten minutes early. We were promptly seated. We had no service beyond water at the 30 minute mark. We finally placed our order around 730pm, which was three French onion soups, two ceasar salads, 6 oysters and a pasta dish. We also ordered a bottle of wine. The wine maybe came out twenty minutes later. Our soup and salad came out at 8pm. The soup was cold. There was a mishap with the soup as it was one person’s entree and thus should have come out with the pasta, so the wrong person was missing soup during the appetizer course. They did replace the cold soup. By the time the third soup came out (without the other entree pasta dish) it was maybe 845pm. We cancelled our pasta dish given the slow service and we were full from the soup and the salad and oysters. We asked for our check around 9pm. The manager, I think, came over to us and apologized and gave us dessert and two soups were removed from the bill. During this whole time our waitress was avoiding us and the busser was the one addressing our concerns. Overall, for three soups, two salads, oysters and wine, this dinner was 2.5 hours which was excessive. I’m appreciative of how they addressed the situation, though I didn’t like our avoidant waitress.

    This was Easter Brunch - I knew full well it was the last service but I did not know we’d be rushed to eat as the hot and warm food started to be removed as of 2:45. Upon confirming my reservation over the phone - I was told we wouldn’t be rushed. However this was the opposite. Considering all this and the cost of 65$/person - this was not sufficient at all. Overpriced. Wasn’t the most enjoyable time given the table had to rush to eat. Had I known, I would have cancelled my reservation. Cost me 207$ for my partner and I..not sure what I got for it.

    Great food! Everything was delicious, the service was professional and the price was reasonable considering the choices of food. The only “negative” was that the lighting wasn’t that bright in the area where we were seated, where the hot and cold buffets were situated. We then discovered that there was a brighter lit area near the restrooms but not sure if that area applies to the brunch. Nevertheless, it was pleasant and I would definitely return.

    Brunch de pâques succulent et varié. Charcuterie, fromage délicieux : chèvre, gouda...fruits, Jambon et rosbif avec sa sauce brune, agneau très bon. Dommage qu'il n'y avait pas de purée et de vrais légumes (le congelé ce n'est pas bon). Gaufres et chantilly et tables de dessert : chocolat, mignardises tartelettes au citron meringuée, brownie, viennoisserie. Presque tout y était et la qualité était impeccable ! Merci

    The sweet potato pancakes were delicious and a generous portion. The fruit smoothie was very nice and appreciated the almond milk instead of regular milk. I was a little disappointed with the ‘Happening Gourmand’, as the price was the same as the regular menu, so no deal to be had as far as I can tell!
