I placed a reservation 2 weeks in advance. Confirmed several times. When I arrived at the front desk, the woman told me the restaurant is full and I would have to wait. I was left to wait for 20 minutes in the hallway until the woman told me it will take longer and I will need to wait in the lobby bar.

I finally got my table. It took 15 minutes to get a drink. They seated us in the most inconvenient spot when I had asked specifically for a seat on the terrace. The food was below expectation, we ordered a new York strip steak ( The meat was not of good quality ) and the 3 tartars on the menu, all 3 of which lacked flavour.

Through out the entire meal and security guard was walking up and down the restaurant floor as if he was a bouncer completely destroying the ambiance. The only thing that came quick was the bill. Very disappointed, I had high expectations

Brunch on Father's Day 2019. Servers were very pleasant. Our order consisted of a wagu burger with fries (excellent!), fried chicken and waffles (very good) and corn meal hoe cakes (also very good). I was concerned about pricing because there is no menu online anywhere. The good news is that you can enjoy a very reasonable $15-$30 per person meal or you can go all out with seafood towers and whatnot. We experienced one minor issue as we reserved for 1045 am (posted time for brunch to start), were seated at 1050ish, but found out the kitchen did a minor shutdown to 1115 to convert the menu. The server made sure we had complementary treats to keep us happy from the breakfast bar, including three amazing berry yogurt/panacotta cups, chocolatine and a divine berries and cream shortbread pastry. We will definitely go back for breakfast to try their regular menu and the $14 pastry breakfast bar.

Reservation was at 9:15 only was seated at 10:20. They apologized for the delay and offered us drinks and oysters.
They were very apologetic and very nice. They tried their best to please us.
The waitress we had was inexperienced.
Loved the vibe, great atmosphere.
Will definitely go back, still very new. They need some time to get all the kinks out.

Went there for a birthday celebration, place is nice, food is amazing and the ambiance was perfect! Thank you to Luc (ask for him as waiter) for everything ie service, knowledge etc.

Reservations recommended and come earlier for a drink at lobby bar or after dinner, you will enjoy it.

Very disappointing experience for brunch. Restaurant’s website advertised that service started at 10:30, and once we got there they turned us away and asked us to come back at 11:30 because the kitchen was closed. We got back at 11:30 and they had a hard time seating us since we didn’t have a reservation for that time. Once we sat down and ordered, it took 45 minutes to be served, and another 45 minutes to get the cheque after we had finished eating. Service wasn’t particularly attentive either. Not worth the hype.

Service is horrible and super slow. We had to ask over 5 times for food & drinks. They blamed the slow service on the fact that the resto has only been open for a month so I’d recommend waiting a couple more months before trying this resto. I was very surprised because I expected more considering it’s in the 4 seasons ...

Service was very chaotic and slow.
Several waiters were attending to the table and it was impossible to know who was responsable for what.
Other staff also would show up and do other tasks. Pour water, etc.
A staff arrived and inexplicably removed the salt and pepper shakers, before our meal arrived.
Two of us were served coffee and another members of our group waited for 10 minutes before their coffee arrived, and that was only once we walked away from the table to chase a waiter down.
it is notable that it was not a busy period in the restaurant.
The butter was forgotten for the toast and a request had to be made for it.
Two items were not available from the too-short brunch menu which was strange given that it was only 12:20 pm and it really want crowded.
the endless cups of coffee whichw ere offered was a nice touch and the the terrace is a quiet and lovely spot. The range of food choices and service needs to be greatly improved before a return visit.
In short, for a simple brunch

Really disappointed with everything. Went over Grand Prix weekend only to find out that they had a special menu. This was not mentioned when calling to confirm or during booking.
Meal was insanely expensive ($50 beet salad) $80 Arctic char entree.
Beet salad was ok. However was supposed to come with truffles. Took a couple bites and didn’t get any truffle essence. Asked the waitress. She looked and no truffles. She brings out a new one.
Finely grated “truffles” are now on the salad. Few bites— still no truffle. So I ask the waitress more about the truffle. She had no idea so she sent a manager type figure over.

He proceeded to explain black and white truffles (eye roll) Then man said and I quote “ but this is a summer truffle and it has no taste.” Why would you ever describe food as flavorless?

Char was inedible it. Everything on the plate was the same color and texture of oatmeal.

4 people tried to clear my plate within 5 mins of each other. Finally gave in to the last one. And then Waitress disappeared for 20 mins we had to flag her down to get the check.

I wanted to like this and was so excited to go but I cannot recommend this for anything more than drinks.

Le serveur était vraiment très bien mais le reste du staff était inexpérimenté. La nourriture était bonne mais rien à se peter les bretelles. Le temps d’attente entre l’entrée et le plat principal était vraiment très long. Le pire, l’ambiance: restaurant “m’as tu vu”, musique de discothèque dans un supposé bistro!!! Avec tous les restaurants à Montréal, je ne vais pas y retourner. Je m’attendais à beaucoup mieux

Everything we ordered was excellent and reasonably good value for the price. Still probably a few kinks to work out... for example, there was no signage in the lobby directing you as to which elevator to take for the restaurant, and they had run out of wine lists when we got there. The only big no-no was the fact they poured wines by the glass in the kitchen instead of at the table. Otherwise, the service was very good. Our waiter was attentive throughout the night, not just at the beginning, which was appreciated. Would definitely go back.

For a Four Seasons restaurant the staff were not anywhere up to standards. Server took 20 min to serve cocktails, never filled water glasses. Adjacent tables were left unattended to for over 20 min after the patrons left. Host put my guests at a completely different table. Portions are very small and food was average at best.
