There wasn’t anything special about the experience. The food was fine. The service was friendly. The atmosphere was flat. We’ll try other restaurants before coming back.

The food was outstanding, but we felt pressured toward the most expensive options. When asked if we wanted wine we accepted, and unknowingly drank a very expensive bottle. It was delicious, but too expensive in my opinion.

Très bon brunch mais le café n'est pas très bon. Il faut prendre un café spécialité pour en avoir un bon!! Ce que je déplore dans un resto qui sert à déjeuner... Mais nous avons passé un excellent moment! 😃

Service TRÈS lent. Sommes arrivé à 19h30 et avons eu nos plats principaux vers 10h. Manque de qualité au niveau su service. Serveur courtois mais peu présent. Nous avons du nous lever nous même à 2 reprises pour aller au bar chercher nos consommations puisque nous n'avions pas de service. Au moins nos plats étaient très bons.

I would give Maggie Oakes a mixed review. The vibe is warm and hip but along with that comes loud music that makes it hard to make conversation. The food is so-so, not quite meeting its aspirations.

La quantité de ce qu’il donne est ridicule. J’ai payé 100$ pour mon repas et je suis allé manger ailleurs directement après. Le serveur m’a dit que c’est un restaurant haute gamme et que c’est pour cela qu’ils ne servent pas beaucoup. J’ai été dans plusieurs restaurants « haute gamme », mais sa c’est se faire rire en pleine face, les plats principals sont sans accompagnements . Une queue de homard accompagnée d’une asperge, mon amie a reçu une bavette accompagnée d’une fenouil, c’est tout elle a dû rajouter des frites pour au moins avoir un plat complet, sa facture aussi était ridicule comparé à ce qu’elle a reçu . Le service par contre était excellent.

Overall it was a quite pleasant experience but it's a bit expensive for what you have and expect especially for the main dish, the vegetables were almost uncooked and the lobster was too much cooked.
I guess we will try it again to get a second opinion.

I ordered the one vegan option on the menu and it was the Israeli couscous and I was quite disappointed. I was expecting it to be flavourful and full of spices but it was tasteless and the least filling thing. The atmosphere was great but for that kind of money, it's not worth it. Go somewhere else. I'd only go back there for drink to be honest.

Excellent repas lors du Happening Gourmand. Entrée gravlax saumon délicieuse, plat magret de canard sublime avec une belle trouvaille pour la sauce riz soufflé chocolat blanc, et brownie excellent. J'ai mis uniquement 5 étoiles car la cuisson de la viande de l'un de mes amis n'était pas celle demandée (même la 2e fois qu'on lui a servi sa viande elle n'était pas encore comme demandé, mais c'était mieux que la 1e fois). Ambiance et cadre très sympa, serveur aux petits soins. Je recommande!

C'était une première pour moi et ma blonde, sûrement l'un des rares restaurants que je n'avais pas essayer. J'ai bien aimer le type d'endroit. La nourriture était très bonne, les portions sont un peu petit pour le prix, mais pour le reste c'est un style d'endroit que j'aime bien. Ce restaurant est dans notre liste pour une 2e fois d'ici 2020. Essayes-le :)

Music was too loud, it was difficucult to hear my partner who was sitting right across from me, unfortunately.
The food was very delicious and service was professional! Nevertheless, we requested an item that was never delivered (more bread), and while our server did follow up with us it was before that moment.
Great wine list, too.

Great food and service from Tristan. The Happening Gourmand deal was great. The only thing is they never gave us our bread despite mentioning it twice. The meal and drinks ended up being very filling so it was alright.

I know your restaurant is supposed to be good but, we came for the happening and received our desert before our food. Service was slow, the pasta dish was bland and the server over poured my wine and billed me for it. It was also very dark, we needed flashlights to read our menus.

Service beaucoup trop rapide.
A un moment on a même demandé au serveur de ralentir le rythme.
Il a fallu retenir notre commande de dessert - le seveur voulait tellement prendre la commande qu’il est repassé 3 fois en 5 minutes. On a du refuser de lui dire pour pouvoir souffler un peu.
Dommage car c’est très bon et on aime l’ambiance et la deco...
