Terrible waitering service! It seemed like I WAS bothering the waiter during his shift. He was more interested serving the table of four behind me, and the others around my table. Plus there was a price mistake for the wine when I received the bill. Two glasses of 8oz, I was charged as if I bought a 60$ bottle. The waiter said there was a price mistake on the menu. --That's not my fault, nor my problem-- Therefore, he said he did ME a favor and charged only one glass of wine. But still explained to me that it was my fault anyway for the "supposed" mix up. Since I'm a gentlemen, not wanting to start stories, I still gave him a 15% tip. Definitely NOT RETURNING to this resto for the price I paid. Total rip off !!!!!

Our waitress, Gabby was absolutely amazing. The restaurant was definitely short staffed, not only on the floor, but obviously in the kitchen as well. They did the best that they could. Food was excellent.

Très dispendieux pour le peu de nourriture. Explication bref de la part du serveur sur les produits. Un burger à 22$ sans légumes. Le repas de bavette laissé à désirer un ou deux asperges pour 40$ ??!!
1ère fois et dernière.

The ambiance and service were excellent. We really enjoyed the steaks and the Caesar salad is a unique preparation that shouldn’t be missed. Nice wine selection by the glass.

Cosy but intimate ambience. We had a very attentive and knowledgeable server, and the few servers were kept very busy throughout the night, so service was slower than expected. The food was excellent, well prepared and seasoned, although it took longer than expected to arrive at the table. It was a Sunday night before Thanksgiving, and we took that as a given it would be slower than usual. Restaurant is in a very chic spot in Old Montreal, and we highly recommend trying the varied and excellent menu.

La serveuse était super gentille, même si parfois ça prendrait du temps et il fallait parfois répéter. L’ambiance était bonne, mais c’était assez tôt. Mais mon tartare n’avait aucun goût. Le surlonge de bœuf avait un goût de brûlé tant la version médium-saignante comme la version bien cuite (plutôt bien brûlée!). La truite arc-en-ciel aurait pu aussi bien être un poulet puisqu’elle n’avait aucun goût. La salade grecque d’entrée et le hamburger étaient le seuls ok. Le gâteau au chocolat de dessert était bon, même si trop riche. Avez le prix si salé mais pas la nourriture, ce n’est pas mon choix pour le prochain repas, c’est sur.

Impossible de changer la table d’hôte de Montréal à table, même pour un up grade. Eh oui, on était prêt à payer mais la réponse était quand même non!!! Le service est lent et l’attente pour la facture, interminable, même avec la carte de crédit sortie et bien en vue sur la table. Décevant!

This restaurant did not live up to its reputation. Lots of drama from employees rushing around with little work getting accomplished. I have worked in the business and get the flow. My husband had the Caesar salad, it was good, I had Asian pork dumplings to start and they were good also. This is a steak place though and my sirloin was pretty bad. Ordered medium rare and it was but it was tough and 1/4 of it inedible fat. My husband had a filet and enjoyed it. Both steaks were served with a pile of cold crappy fries. Montreal has fabulous fries in general, these sucked. Our server was inept and maybe not trained well. I understand that we are coming out of covid19 and help is hard to find but for the prices at this place it should have been much smoother.

The food wasn't exactly worth the money paid for it + our order was poorly managed by the waiter, delaying it for 1+ hour!
My reservation was yet to be properly looked at: I'd established my friends and I were to dine in at the place for my birthday, and the aformentioned waiter said he didn't know it was a birthday dinner - unacceptable!
I'm glad he was a nice guy, but the damage was done, so it impacted the whole experience.

We enjoyed our dining experience thoroughly. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is casual but delightful. The oysters were fresh and very tasty. We both ordered hanger steak and it was perfectly done and the mashed potatoes were amazing. I might have liked more than 4 spears of asparagus…but I’m not complaining.

Bonjour, Est-ce que je peux vous demander à partir de quel site ou application vous avez réussi à réserver? Je suis vraiment désolée que vous vous êtes déplacés pour rien. Tous les sites de réservations sont pourtant bien inaccessibles à faire une réservation les lundis et mardis depuis le début du mois d'août. Merci Christine Béland Directrice de la restauration

Clumsy waiter. Kept apologizing on every action as he was clearly inefficient.
Asked for medium, got medium rare..
Served with basic fries from a frozen bag probably.
Soggy red velvet as dessert.
And finally half empty 6.5$ shooters thanks to a clumsy waiter who offered paper towels instead of refills.

This restaurant was the best food experience we had in Montreal, and that's high praise because everything was great. We had the special cut 46oz. Tomahawk Chop done Rare + and it was literally the best steak experience we've had for decades.

The service is that perfect balance of attentive but not overbearing and the maitre de was gracious and accommodating.

We are already planning our next trip centred on this restaurant.
