    I found the portions a bit small for the price. The endive salad was underdressed and lacked that blue cheese “kick” as promised. The food was ok, but there are better values and better food to be found in Montreal.

    Nous avons passé une très belle soirée. Notre serveur était super gentil et professionnel. L'ambiance était comme j'aime ! Nos entrées et repas étaient vraiment succulents ! Le seul petit bémol, à mon goût à moi, il y avait un peu trop de fromage dans mon risotto mais à part cela, tout était vraiment délicieux. On savoure chaque bouchée... Nous y retournerons, ça c'est certain ! Chantal et Robert

    We had the lobster mac & cheese, lobster with risotto, lobster ravioli and grilled calamari. All were very good. The desserts were excellent - chocolate mousse and lemon meringue. It's not a gourmet meal, but it's all very tasty and was really well priced, considering there was lobster in all of our main dishes. It was a quiet, winter night and our waitress was very attentive, but we don't know what it will be like on a very busy night.

    Extremely disappointed! Been wanting to try this one for a while now and we will never set food here again. We found the lobster equivalent to the Griswold turkey. 1 half lobster plate and the risotto with lobster tail. Very very disappointing. Could barely remove the meat from the tails, so so dry and over cooked. Only a tiny bit of meat after scraping it from the tail. The risotto was fair, very little risotto on the bottom of plate and barely warm. But that dry lobster (both ours) is just such a shame. Getting served that at an actual “lobster bar” is shameful. Total bill ? $240 (oysters, drinks and the Griswold lobsters) utterly annoyed

    The restaurant is very pretty and located in Auberge du Vieux Port hotel which is beautiful. We were three for lunch. We went to this restaurant because we had a craving for a lobster roll which two of us ordered. For $32 we found it to be bland and did not contain a large amount of lobster. The third person in our group ordered a fish tacos which was skimpy. None of this could be hard to correct we think and are posting this as constructive feedback. The service was good.

    Service is very good. Nice ambience. Music is pleasant but not too loud. Easy to have a conversation. Food is interesting but not that great. lobster ravioli had nice filling but the sauce was strange and the cheese did not compliment the dish. The lobster and crab macaroni and cheese was very poorly done. Would not waste money on that. It was just okay on the end.

    No creativity in the traditional dishes. Clam chowder was bland and had more shrimp than clams in it. Lobster Thermidor was very salty, and we could not taste the cheese it is supposed to contain, only the breading. The lemon tart was excellent, the only place I know of in Montreal that actually makes it tart. Service was very friendly, but I'm guessing they are under-staffed as most everywhere else. The fish was overcooked, thus dry. Overall quite disappointing.
