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.

Thank to the waiter Julien! Especially the gift card from William Grey Spa (facial massage) that he gave it to us for the Valentine’s Day.

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.

Bon service, Portion pas très grosses , mon steak n’était Pas chaud il manque un peu de finesse ds les plats, la gaufre pas goûteuse et molle on est loin des gaufres au sucre belges !! Le bacon sur les gaufres était plutôt mou et froid et pas croustillant du tout , par contre le poulet sur les gaufres était très bon et la combinaison avec le sirop était super les œufs florentine n était pas très bons, je suis habitué à mieux, manque de saveurs .
En général c’est ok mais ça vaut pas le déplacement au centre ville.

Quel beau restaurant ! Mais quelle mauvais service à la clientèle. Nous avons mentionner à la réservation que c’était pour un anniversaire. L’hôtesse m’a dit qu’elle allait en faire mention au service qui lui n’a fait aucune attention particulière. Décevant! Notre commande comportait des erreurs. Lorsque nous l’avons mentionner à notre serveur il nous a répondu d’une façon très offusquante malgré qu’une des erreurs étaient sa faute, une autre était que nos saucisses étaient saignantes et la troisième erreur était l’omission d’un ingrédient par la cuisine. Par la suite, il est allée discuter avec ses collègues sur nos yeux en riant pendant que ses collègues nous regardaient. Je décris cette situation comme un très mauvais service à la clientèle et on n’a pas du tout aimer se sentir comme cela dans un si beau restaurant. Quel mauvais service ! Cela enlève tout son charme à un tel établissement,

Everything was very nice. The service polite, the food very good, and our table well placed.

There is only one thing I must say about the waitress, is that we warned her about nuts allergies (ALL),for the kid at the table, but she brought pastries WITH nuts to the father and the mother. The kid wanted some, but we couldn't give any to her, and she wasn't a happy kid. Since we touched the pastry, we couldn't give her anything else with our hands, because she would have been contaminated...being extremly allergique.
Please tell all your servers to take this matter very seriously.
This time, we avoided a situation that could have been very bad.

Thank you

Sad that the plates were premade for happening gourmand. Drinks were not tasty, quality seems to be going downhill as time goes by. Food and drinks, but service as well... had like 4-5 different waiters.. not sure I will return. Too bad, because it was s great find when it first opened.

In general, the food was good. My friend thought it was a little bit too salty but on my side, I found it was ok. We took the lentil salad for appetizer and the 7oz steak with fries for entrée. The service was great. We had to wait at the end to get our bills but aside from this, the service was great. The restaurant is not noisy, the decors is simple, spacious and well decorated. You also have the valet parking option at 5$ when you dine at the restaurant, which is very convenient as there is not a lot of parking space in the Old Port.

I went to the restaurant during the "Happening Gourmand". I ordered from their table d'hôte 29$ 3 course menu; trout tartar, which was fair - there were two pieces of crunchy toast/cracker (not enough) and the tartar had very little seasoning/taste. I also ordered the mushroom risotto as a main dish, which was disappointing - not much flavor, risotto wasn't fully cooked, it was still crunchy. Lastly for dessert, I ordered a cappuccino and the chocolate mousse. Best part of it all was my whiskey smash drink/cocktail, chocolate mousse and cappuccino.

C'est la deuxième fois que je me présente à cet établissement. La première fois, dans le cadre de Montréal à table, nous étions un large groupe, je me suis dit que c'était un mauvais concours de circonstances.
Cette fois nous n'étions que deux, en business lunch. Il n'y avait pas beaucoup de monde. Le 4/5 de la salle était vide et malgré ça, ils ont trouvé le moyen de se tromper dans la commande qu'ils ont repris. De plus, la cuisson n'était pas celle désirée, mais faute de temps, je n'ai pas cru bon le mentionner. Le bon point dans cette affaire, le serveur est venu nous aviser de leur erreur et qu'ils rushaient à sortir notre commande.
Vraiment décevant comme endroit !

Food was amazing, service was extremely long.... when we asked the waiter, he said that there was lots of groups... the table beside us came roughly 30 min after us and was served and paid the bill before we got our plates. When the food came, one of us waited an extra 15 minutes because apparently something happened to the plate... worst service ever thank god the food was good

Went for brunch on Saturday for festival gourmand in old mtl! Table d’hôte was $17.00 plus extra for steak /egg choice +$9.00 or chicken with waffles was extra too. Comes with free appetizer -either daily smoothie or mixture of small pastries. We took one of each ! Smoothie was mango ; orange juice and yoghurt . Was good . Pastries very fresh and warm -delicious .
Main -we chose traditional eggs Benedict; steak and eggs (extra $$) and chicken and waffles (extra $$). All very good!
Coffee not the best only ok. I took the mimosas (3 hr ) all you can drink for extra $30.00! Well worth it!!
Very busy place and service was slow at times but understandable! Will return Definitely! Bon appétit !

We came here for Happening Gourmand, which exposes you to their cuisine at a set menu. The food was delicious and the service excellent. I would definitely return to try some of their regular menu.

The ambiance was lit, not sure if they have a DJ but the song choice was great...The service was good. The waiter was attentive and had good sense of humour. The food was scrumptious however they did not have the cut of meat that I wanted so I guess I have an excuse to go back there.

I attended Maggie Oakes during Happening Gourmand and ate from their reduced price table d'hôte. The food was alright but the service was incredibly slow. The music and environment was amazing so that made the experience more worthwhile.
