Great band but too loud to be able to talk with friends without yelling. Excellent service and food. Happy with our choice to visit your restaurant

Great food, service and atmosphere. Musician was good, as usual. Lorenzo and staff took great care of us. I always come here when I'm in Montreal.

Totally fine, average place that had some nice live jazz for brunch. Weirdly couldn't put an egg on my Croque Monsieur so perhaps they should look into hiring some talent for the kitchen.

Very nice and lively atmosphere with live music. Service was great! Food is not too fancy but very tasty. Salmon Gravlax was something to remember and come back for. Overall great experience.

The live music was great and you could really feel the passion of the musicians playing. The atmosphere was romantic; perfect place for a date. The food was yummy: we had the fried calamari (I like the fact that they give you 3 sauces), steak frites and chicken supreme. Steak was cooked perfectly as requested and the sauce on it was delicious. The chicken was slightly dry but the truffle mashed potatoes was the best I ever had. For dessert we ordered the passion mousse and it was a perfect way to end the meal. The service was very fast. Overall, the food was good but the portions were small for the price.

Music was amazing and our meal was amazing! 8 pm reservations on a Friday night. The jazz ensemble was every bit as good as those we’ve heard on Beall Street and in New Orleans. Food was impressive from the lamb poutine to mussels to the cassoulet - we were indulgent and it was oh so good!

Went to celebrate my birthday my risotto was very good. However I didn’t like the lamb burger we ordered bc it wasn’t a burger. It was closer to a pulled pork sandwich.

The music was extremely loud, very unpleasant, painful at times. We were finally moved to a quieter part of the restaurant, which was better. The food and service was fine, but I didn’t realize the live band would have their volume extremely loud.

Really expensive for what it is. Overall quality (food, wine) is not there either. Live jazz is good, but so noisy around. Better a good internet jazz music in background at the end.

The foie gras was so disappointing that we had a hard time appreciating the rest of the dishes. We should probably go back to give the restaurant another chance. The leftovers in the doggie bag where actually quite good

Amazing blues band was playing that night, but the guitarists wife got up second set and it was horrible! Took an 1:45 minutes in a 2 hour allotment, to receive our main dish, but it was very good.... would give a second chance but would definitely inquire about the entertainment!

Excellent service! Nous avons passez une excellente soirée entre amis. L'ambiance jazz est très agréable mais nous étions très près du band donc il était un peu plus difficile de s'entendre mais c'est un détail par rapport a la qualité de la soirée passée, du service et de la qualité de la nourriture

Le cadre est tres joli, le repas etait bon mais pas incroyable par rapport à ce qu'on attendait
Il y a de la musique live jazz ce qui est normalement tres agréable mais dans ce cas c'etait tellement fort qu'on ne s'entendait pas parler et le bruit ambiant était enorme. On est ressortis stressés et fatigués de ce bruit non stop
