    Very disappointed by the food and even the drinks. We ate in the speakeasy section at a small table along the wall so we were cramped and could hear all the conversations around us. The menu for the food was limited but the drink selection was good. The only positive thing was the service but that was it. Unfortunately I will not return.

    Une belle découverte, des serveurs professionnels et attentifs, une sélection de tapas savoureux, un décor artistique et des cocktails complètement MALADES!!!! UNE VISITE S'IMPOSE. c'est la première fois de ma vie qu'un serveur était si attentif....voyant que je commençais à être gâvée, il a ralenti le service pour que le repas puisse continuer à être apprécié précisant que les derniers plats étaient savoureux. ..nous ne devions pas passer à côté. Grande délicatesse!!!

    Menu expérience pour deux personnes un samedi soir vers 18h30. LES PLUS . Les 9 plats étaient variés (différents types de cuisine), et presque tous excellents et raffinés. . Service souriant et prévenant. . Ambiance feutrée, ce qui nous convenait parfaitement. La clientèle plus animée a commencé à arriver peu avant notre départ. LES MOINS . La musique résolument rétro (années 80-90) diffusée toute la soirée. Mais c'est une question de préférence... . Seul le tartare de bœuf étaient un peu décevant, surtout comparé au tartare de thon qui l'a précédé.

    We had the New Year's experience menu and everything was amazing. The burruta dish was the best I've ever had (hummus with crunchy chickpeas and pomegranate seeds was an amazing addition). 5/5 for the food!!! The service was super friendly though a bit slow at times and they did forget to bring us one of the courses (which ended up fine, we were stuffed and they gave us a replacement). Only negative thing I can say is that they overcharged me by one drink, but it's partially my fault for not noticing until I was home. All in all a great experience and I'll definitely come back to Mauvais Garcon!!!!

    Belle expérience. Nous avons pris le menu découverte. Tous les plats étaient excellents. La seule chose à ameliorer est au niveau du service. Les plats arrivaient à un rythme beaucoup trop rapide qu'ils finissaient par devenir froids. Sinon le personnel était très gentil.

    Le seul commentaire constructif je dirais c'est la confusion de la réservation pour Vendetta bar à vin qui passe par Mauvais Garçons.. Dans mon moment de confusion, je me suis fier à mes courriels et nous avons effectivement mangé à Mauvais Garçons en oubliant complètement que nous avions réservé pour Vandetta! Ils nous ont gentiment accommodé comme si rien n'était mais je me dis que ça ne doit quand même pas etre sans consequences... Nous avons passé une belle soirée, le menu à partager était délicieux!!

    Service de Gian Carlos qui dépasse les attentes. Attentionné, compréhensif et sait faire des suggestions selon nos besoins. Staff souriant, formule tapas avec plats recherchés. Seule recommandation, dans les choix de menu expérience, lorsque nous sommes 2 couples, ce serait mieux d avoir les plats par couple et non pas une plus grande portion pour 4. Si on se connaît bien ça va mais si c est une première rencontre c est moins plaisant de piger dans le même plat! Merci encore je recommande sans hésiter.

    Nous étions deux couples à vivre pour la première fois l'expérience gastronomique du menu expérience à 65$ de Mauvais Garçons. Chacun a apprécié les mets servis autant pour les aliments choisis, leurs arômes, l'harmonie de ceux-ci et la créativité qu'on y a mis. De plus, la carte des vins et bières est d'un bon niveau. De plus, notre hôte Juan Carlo s'est avéré charmant, aidant et professionnel. Nous avons soupé en la partie du restaurant qui est le bar à vin "la Vendetta ", endroit sympathique et aménagé joliment. Si nous avions une petite suggestion à vous faire, ce serait celle-ci... Un menu raccourci d'un ou deux plats serait certes suffisants pour plusieurs ...

    This is a gastronomic experience. Small dishes meant for sharing. Tuna and cauliflower tacos are my personal favorites!!! Dishes are creative and varied. Would recommend this place for anyone who likes food. Only down side is that there is absolutely zero parking!!! Best to Uber if you can’t park further away and walk
