Très belle expérience hier soir! On a eu un excellent service de Fabrice qui, malgré sa section pleine, a été super efficace et attentionné envers nous. Mon chum et moi allons définitivement revenir sous peu.

Un petit bout de brasserie parisienne en plein milieu de Montréal. Le service était parfait, le saumon parfaitement cuit, assiette chaude pour le service, les fromages excellent! Mon côte du Rhône comme à la maison! Une belle expérience, on reviendra

Le service était excellent! Serveuse et personnel très gentils, accueil très chaleureux. C’était ma fête et ils nous ont offert le dessert

Par contre si vous y allez pour pour bien manger .. raté d’avance! On a été très déçus par nos plats. Calamars frits qui goûtent le brulée, bavette à la place d’un steak et poulet bouillie dans l’eau …

Responded 20 hours ago

Loubna, bien que nous soyons heureux que vous ayez apprécié votre service, votre avis sur la nourriture et cette évaluation d'une étoile sont inquiétantes car nous prenons la satisfaction de nos clients très au sérieux. Sachez qu'il est toujours possible d'aviser le gérant si un aspect de votre soirée n'est pas à la hauteur de vos attentes afin qu l'on remédie à la situation. Nous espérons que vous nous donnerez une seconde chance afin que l'on puisse vous offrir une meilleure expérience.

The service wasn’t very good, didn’t pay much attention or come around. it was a birthday and nothing was done, i didn’t expect it but something would of been nice. there was a very highly intoxicated person at the bar who was very loud and instead of stopping him from drinking the bartender just kept feeding him drinks. In all honesty he ruined the whole thing and which was horrible since the food and wine was amazing!
