Great food, a little over crowded on busy night and could seem quite squished. Had a great waiter who was really outgoing and aimed to please. Would definitely come back again!

It took 20 minutes for us to be greeted, then we got our appetizer and finished it , before we even got our drinks. My $45 steak came out cold and the server never came by to check how our food was so I just ate it .
The food was good (had my steak not been cold I’m sure it would have been much better) but our experience here was very disappointing

The decor of the restaurant was very nice and clean, the food was AMAZING (we ordered the Burrata and Fried Shrimp entrees with two Surlonge, one beef tartare and a Kansas steak). The service was fantastic-- our waiter (Alex) was very friendly, funny and super helpful-- he had my mother's steak redone since it wasn't cooked properly, and was very nice about it. Plus, we got a free birthday cake! Would definitely recommend. On the pricier side but totally worth it.

The servers are totally amazing and perfect spot for a large crowd. The food was over all good, the meat cuts were tough, maybe it was an anomaly. Appetizers were delicious., would definitely go back.

Bottomless mimosa are not BOTTOMLESS, cause we found the bottom... I went with a group who all ordered bottomless and we were constantly running low with a waitress who would not come and refill. I ordered first and was basically yelled at when she explained that the charge was PER person. Which I already knew and was happy to pay the $30. We understand there is a time limit, but we were well within 2 hour time frame, we just never given refills which was very disappointing. The food was average and felt there menu was very limited. Will not be returning...

Nous sommes allés bruncher dans le cadre du Happening Gourmand. Le menu était intéressant et bon. Excellent rapport qualité prix. Par contre, il y a quelques erreurs, mais ils ont rectifié rapidement. Le service était bien mais en même temps “too much” (trop essayer et trop enthousiaste). Il manquait d’ambiance... c’était vide pour un brunch du dimanche. Je ne pense pas qu’il y avait de la musique. En général, nous ne sommes pas déçus, c’était bien!

Nous avons dû attendre notre table 30 minutes après le moment prévu de ma réservation. Cela dit, le serveur sympathique m'a fait oublié cet inconvénient. Bonne bouffe!

notre serveur manquait définitivement d’expérience. Il n’était pas à l’écoute et semblait très distrait. Les clients à la table à côté ont ressenti la même chose... nous étions seulement 2 puis il avait de la misère à ce souvenir de notre commande malgré le fait qu’il notait tout sur son calpin...

Tout était parfait! L'ambiance feutré était très agréable, le service était impeccable, surtout celui de notre serveur pour la soirée Nicolas. Service très attentionné et courtois. La nourriture était exquise! Nous y étions pour le Happening Gourmand et n'avons pas été déçu. La soupe à l'oignon en entrée était parfaite et le Steak frite était sublime. La viande était cuite à la perfection et fondait dans la bouche! J'y retournerais sans hésitation.

L'accueil, le service et la nourriture étaient excellentes. Toutefois, je trouve qu'ils auraient avantage à amoindrir les bruits ambiants et à se limiter à mettre de la musique d'ambiance. C'était plus une ambiance de disco que de restaurant.

Dommage car la qualité de leur boeuf mérite le détour.

Tried the Happening Gourmand menu (beef tartare, roasted half cornish chicken and tiramisu). Food is great - the way they roasted the chicken and the food that went with the serving was just excellent - even the bacon tasted healthy. The beef tartare also tasted fresh and did not have any sauce/garnishment to cover it with. Welcoming environment - the host, the servers and even the bus boy provided excellent service.

They had no idea which cut the steak frites was. Then they said it was NY strip. Not even close!
Very disappointing.

We are meat lovers, you could even say we are connoisseur. I ate their Porterhouse cut few times and it was awesome. Last time we went, no more Porterhouse, so we took the Tomahawk. It was a true disappointment, not to say a disaster. The meat was unevenly cooked (we asked rare, some parts were very well done), the fat marbling was literally nonexistent (I regret not taking pictures of it), the taste was (VERY) bland, even the external fat was tasteless... I hate to complain, but I had no choice, it was insulting to be served a piece of meat that mediocre when you know (approximately) the price you'll pay for it. At least we got 50% off this cad$135 piece of disappointment (nice of them to offer 50% off) but it was honestly worth $0. I personally would NEVER serve this myself, at home, to guests.
Another bummer is to be said we have 2 hours top chrono to eat and get out (we were there for my daughter's birthday, and told them we would really like more time. They managed to let us the table for all the time we needed, what was very nice and accommodating of them). But what is this new trend of jam packing your restaurant and throwing your costumers in and out like this? We are now in a time where quality time and quality food are not important anymore, where costumers are treated like numbers and the sooner they get out the better.
We tried to go eat there 2 weeks before, on a Tuesday (it was pretty quiet compared to the big nights). We stood in front for a few minutes. At least 4 or 5 people saw us and passed right in front of us, took menus, no one talked to us, not a single "Hello". We were then finally welcomed, but like we were bothering him. He threw us at the bar, it was desert and not even lit... We didn't even sat, we left. We felt we were too much.
Yes we got accommodated for the meat and the sitting time, but with the unpleasant time 2 weeks before on top of that... it was the last time we were going there. Never again.
