The food and vibe was absolutely delicious. It was a little cold in the restaurant and the choice of music was a bit odd. Other then that the staff and food could not have been better.

Very glad we found this gem. Tapas were all on point, tastes were balanced and rich. Complex flavours that were well layered and subtle. Service was great, excellent actually with a lot of attention to detail by our waiter as well as excellent recommendations based on expressed tastes. Would recommend without hesitation.
The only constructive criticism I could make is that wine by the glass menu is very limited, although it would be great to taste multiple options to accompany tapas plates.

Nous avons attend 45 min avant d’avoir notre premier verre commander et la réservation était à 21:00
par la suite le service des plats ne c’est pas fait dans l’ordre commandé et voulu donc la nourriture avec le choix de nos cocktails et vins aurait pu être wow mais ce fut très ordinaire

Le menu élaboré et éclaté et fantastique tout es savoureux et goûteux

Decided to try the 10 course tasters menu. Every course was delicious. The kale salad, tuna tartar and chicken sliders were my favorites!

Service was excellent and staff were friendly.

I have a wonderful experience at Mauvais Garçon every time I go! The restaurant looks fabulous has a great ambiance and the food is to die for! It is a tad expensive however I never regret spoiling myself and my partner when I am spending the money at Mauvais Garçon. Great job to all staff.

Rien à redire! Service courtois. Belle présentation des plats. Le menu à déguster est sublime. Une petite mignardise sucrée pourrait bien terminer le menu... Merci à Claudio pour son choix de Sancerre... On y retourne encore et encore...

We were greeted by an unpleasant person who was terribly rude while checking our vaccines passes. He does not deserve our business. We were a party of 6. We can take our business where our patronage is appreciated.

I made the reservation one week prior to our dinner. When we arrived we were placed in the adjoint room, where the noise level was so high I felt dizzy (yes I'm sensitive to that). I spoke with the waitress and she immediately spoke with the manager who was just amazing! They accommodated us at a table in the initial room we had entered and helped us to bring our things to the new table, with care and attention (we were 2 couples). The food is outstanding, small tapas, all delicious! An excellent wine to go with the food and great service! We will be back for sure!!

Be aware that the place is tiny so some spots are kind of cramped.

But the food was excellent, very friendly service.
The pacing of the meal was very good as well (tapas style)

A bit of a mixed experience and a lot of disorganization.

First, the restaurant is packed and we were seated at a table where the staff kept brushing past us. It also took 30min to just get our first cocktails.

Second, we had a tasting menu and wine pairing. We had asked if it was possible to do no meat, and it wasn’t a problem, great! But then every single course was covered in cheese (eg goat or feta). I love cheese, but not for every course of a tasting menu…

Third, the timing and logistics of wine vs courses was completely out of sync. At some points we had multiple courses and different wines on the table. Other points we had wine or food sitting alone for a while.

The restaurant has a lot of potential, but the execution was off.
