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.

La nourriture est bonne mais les plats sont assez chers. Il faut calculer au moins 2 plats par personne. Le service est très lent. Les plats sont cependant originaux.

We were 5 girls and took the tasting menu (9 course for $65 including dessert). Each item was very good and we were full in the end. The salmon tartare, beef carpacio & kale salad were outstanding. Service was great and fast. Will definitely be back on a similar occasion
