Très dommage que la nourriture n'était pas à la hauteur de l'apparence luxueuse et haut de gamme du restaurant. Le staff était gentil mais semblait inexpérimenté. Je n'ai malheureusement pas aimé mon expérience malgré que j'ai anticipé cette soirée depuis plusieurs jours...

I went for MTLATABLE 2019 and the main plate was awful! I took the risotto and was cold, no taste at all and it was just not eatable. Worst risotto I've ever taste! I didnt even finish my food, was really bad.

Deuxième visite. La nourriture était excellente comme d’habitude, mais cette fois-ci le service était plutôt moche. Quand une serveuse regarde au loin et ne regarde pas ses clients quand elle répond à une de leur question... c’est moche.

Le service était extraordinaire, c'était l'anniversaire de ma cousine et elle a reçu beaucoup de petites attentions. Nous avons même reçu des coupons rabais pour le spa. Le repas était copieux et le dessert (au chocolat) était parfait. J'y retournerai avec ou dans rabais. Je conseille ce restaurant à tous. Merci Eric!

The steak we ordered is very hard, the knife could not cut, and we could not eat it. The other dishes are just so so.

We celebrated my daughter's 19th birthday at Maggie Oakes. It was a great experience. We enjoyed our Brunch. Only issue we had was with the timing of the service. Unfortunately for us there were quite a few large groups of over 12 people who were there before us. We were also a group of 12 and it took over an hour for us to get our food.

The only reason I gave them a 3 star in service was because we were really very hungry and it took forever for them to serve us.

I do appreciate the manager who came to us without even us complaining and offered us some free desserts as an apology for the late service.

Overall our experience was very good.

Food was a little tasteless, not much spices.
Both our plates were a little cold.

Service was poor. I made the waiter aware of a severe allergy and the plate came with it. When I asked for a new plate, the brought me the same one without the allergen, which was not what I had asked since other foods on the plate were in contact with the allergen. They had to go back and remake it, but it was cold. He also forgot my coffee and took a long time to ask if we wanted anything else. We asked for the check and it took about 30 min to receive.

I was disappointed since I had heard good things about this place.

Je suis allée bruncher dans le cadre de Montreal à table et j’ai été franchement déçue. Brunch sans intérêt, patate surgelée, Feta sans goût, très banal et surtout pas bon. Si l’objectif était de faire revenir les clients, ils devraient sérieusement se poser la question sur la qualité des produits proposés dans leur menu Montréal à table. Le service était très lent aussi. La place est plutôt sympa par contre, mur végétal et viande vieillies sont exposées.

The food was very good. We came for MTL à table, and the choices were good and we were very satisfied. What could be improved was the table service. We did not have the correct utensils for any of our courses. No spoons for soup, no steak knives for main course and no utensils at all for dessert. When we arrived, we were told our reservation time had been move 30 minutes later but no one had called or emailed to advise. The hostess was quick though and resolved that with no issues.

For the price I would have hoped
For faster service, an entree that was not cold and a beet salad that was larger than a partition for a mouse. Gorgeous ambiance, but left much to be desired.

Très déçu de l’expérience brunch. Les plats n’avaient aucune saveur. Nous avons commandé le menu MTLaTABLE et c’était décevant. Les gaufres et le poulet étaient sec avec aucune saveur. Il y avaient seulement un plat de pâtissements pour deux personnes et elles ressemblaient à ceux qu’on achète au dépanneur du coin. La présentation des plats ne ressemblait aucunement aux photos sur instagram.

The location is amazing, the ambience is really nice but the food did not wow me it was just okay. I went to try it because of the mtl a table event and it was a little disappointing. There are so many great restaurant options near by that I wouldn't come back here

Très bon en général, mais la viande, celle de ma conjointe et la mienne, était trop cuite pour médium saignant. La viande goûtait un peu trop le calciné en surface. Excellente entrée, dessert, vin et cocktail.

What a wonderful night it was at the Maggie's oaks with a visiting freind. Food was really tasty and hearty. The service staff was really attentive and made myself along with my guest feel comfortable and at home. Would definitely recommend the Maggie's for a fine dining experience in a home like ambiance.

We went for MTL à table. From previous comments at the beginning of the event, I expected to be a little disappointed but went with optimism. I believe they had the opportunity to straighten up because everything went really well! Service was fast and very friendly, the staff answered our questions and checked up on us regularly. The food was great! The seasoning was a little overpowering in my pork shoulder dish (just personal taste, not a huge fan of sage) but it was still tasty. Overall a nice night out and probably one of the better restaurants in that touristy area.

food was ok but nothing special. Viennoiseries were of no interest, waffles seemed warmed up and chicken not very tasty but ok.
We were in for MTL a Table and it was the first time in my experience that prices did not match those advertised on MTL a Table website, several things required additional payment or bigger additional payment. On MTL a Table website there was no extra $5 for the chicken waffle (in restaurant there was), and included dessert was at no extra cost, while in the restaurant the menu indicated an additional $4 for this same dessert. Manager eventually agreed to respect the prices posted on MTL a Table website, we asked to speak to manager before proceeding to order, but he first feigned surprise and tried to "kindly" offer just the dessert without the additional $4.
Table setup and food presentation were of no interest. With so many better places there is no point in returning there.

Brunch entre amies durant Mtl à table. Tres long délai avant qu'on nous propose un café, la patience est de mise pour le recevoir ensuite.

Une d'entre nous a reçu une assiette incomplète. Dans le menu, on pouvait lire que tous les plats étaient accompagnés de patates déjeuner. Il n'en était rien en réalité. Plats corrects sans plus, assiettes peu garnies. Facture élevée pour peu de plaisir gustatif.

Décevant. Nous avons pris le menu Mtl à table. Je n’ai pas eu le plat commandé et ni la cuisson requise, par conséquent. Il n’y avait plus du dessert commandé et le serveur ne s’est pas senti obligé de nous en informer et pour finir, erreur sur l’addition! Pour la nourriture, à ce prix, je m’attendais à mieux. Malheureusement, on avait l’air dans un attrape-touristes...

We went for MTL restaurant week and were excited to have made reservations 2 weeks in advance for our anniversary. We were so disappointed in the food and the lack of taste. We both order the butternut squash soup and it was under salted and lacked anything special. We also both order the sirloin and it had absolutely no flavor at all. We were so upset to have had a bad dinner. We will not be coming here ever again.
