    Unfortunately, this dinning experience was poor. The wait for our food was excessive - no other table waiting as long as us - and one of our meals was warm not hot, likely sitting for awhile before served. The waiters were less than impressive, and the lighting in the restaurant was so bright, it became irritating.

    Excellent fish and chip and oysters. Grilled lobster too expensive and overcook. Tataki tuna too cold.

    Casual chic lobster bar with a east coast beachy vibe. I have visited Pincette several times and recommend the tuna tataki, salmon tartare, lobster ravioli and lobster tail with risotto. Lobster roll is my all-time favourite.

    Cod fish croquettes were excellent. Lobster rolls somewhat disappointing - lobster salad instead of lobster lumps. Excellent service.

    I reserved for two people, they were only a few table for two. Kindly I asked for a table for four, since it wasn't crowded at all. The hostess didn't want to give us a table for 4, we were seated near the in and out of the bathroom and kitchen. Later on, several group of two were seated in table for four. I don't thinkit's fair t all.

    Based on the reviews and the location of the restaurant, I made reservations for dinner for our first night in Montreal. My girlfriend and I were equally unimpressed. Our food came out so quickly that we thought it was a fast food restaurant! The lobster risotto was quite bland while the lobster itself was overcooked and tasteless. From a service perspective, I have to say that our waiter seemed disinterested. Overall, it was not a great experience. If I Iived in Montreal, I would not go back. and I can't recommend it to any visitors either. I must add that I do not not enjoy writing bad reviews, but since I dined here based on OpenTable recommendations, I wanted to share my honest opinion.

    Nice place, but when we arrived, we asked to sit outdoors and were told that there was a specific waiting list for outdoor dining - but that option doesn't appear on OT. Additionally, they were out of oysters, and it turns out that their lobsters are all boiled and then grilled, and one cannot have them just boiled. Service was pretty good, and atmosphere was causal, but overall, it was a bit pricey for what we actually got.

    The food was good, overall a good experience. I did not find the service overly attentive - a little slow. They did not have any oysters left - while still advertised on their specials board - I would suggest this be the first thing they mention.

    Aucun intérêt une poutine avec deux petits morceaux de homard surgelés... Pour 30 dollars avant taxes et tips... Simplement un attrapé touriste honteux. Gentillessedu personnel. Mais cela ne suffit pas à compenser une nourriture sans saveur. Et à des prix exorbitant qui ne valent certainement pas la prestation.

    Really fantastic breakfast. BEst avocado toast I have ever eaten. Great service. Curious as I went back two days later at around 9.30 when there were more people in the restaurant, but after half an hour I left as my breakfast had still not arrived. You have to do better than that!

    Les guédilles au homard goûtaient et contenaient plus d’oignons crus et de céleris que de morceaux de homard et, la poutine était noyée sous la sauce et était correcte, sans plus. De plus, notre serveuse nous a oublié et on a reçu nos assiettes après une heure d’attente. Elle s’est excusé plusieurs fois et cela semblait un oubli, mais en 45 minutes, elle n’est venu nous voir qu’une seule fois. Je n’y retournerai pas, car j’ai déjà mangé des plats au homard et au crabe meilleurs ailleurs.
