    Great location if you're in the Old Montréal area. Reservations important, but were easy to make even the night prior. Service was good. Food was good, but not outstanding - for a lobster restaurant we expected more seafood flavour in the food overall. Prices were reasonable though.

    Service très lent, une heure d'attente pour avoir nos entrées, alors qu'un groupe de cinq arrivé après nous à été servi avant. Repas peu copieux, queue de homard miniature, trop de risotto dans l'assiette. Restaurant extrêmement bruyant, la musique ultra forte n'était pas nécessaire. Mauvaise expérience, que ma fille a qualifiée de piège à touristes ...

    Overall, very disappointing meal. Octopus was charred and bitter. Lobster ravioli was dry and had 3 small pieces of lobster. Sauce was tasteless. Quality and taste of the lobster roll was poor. Not sure why the high ratings. Definitely better restaurants in the area.

    Food was very mediocre, maybe even less than mediocre. We ordered the surf and turf- medium, which lacked seasoning, was tough and cold, shrimp looked like it was taken out of a freezer bag. Also ordered the lobster with salad and fries which was very under whelming. Appetizers were also underwhelming- cod fritters which stated they were served with an aioli but in reality was just low quality mayonnaise squirted all over. Also ordered the crab arancini which hardly had any crab and lacked flavour. On a positive note the waiter was very friendly and attentive. Overall a disappointing experience. Left a lot of food behind. Definitely a tourist trap for people who are not food savvy.

    Discovered this restaurant about a half of a mile from our hotel and found that the food was fantastic with the lamb shank absolutely the best that I have ever had. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal with reasonable prices. The service was excellent.

    Un service très très lent. Que ce soit pour la commande des plats, l’arrivée des plats (très très lent et long) et le moment où je dois payer ce fut la même la chose. Après le lieu est beau et très sympa même si la musique était très forte ce qui n'est pas très agréable. La nourriture c'était bon mais sans plus

    It's a bar, not a restaurant. Very limited food selection. No pitchers to share, no platters to share. Lobster roll was cold. Fish fritters were loaded with cumin without any mentioning of it on the menu. Same as salad as a side to a lobster roll, full of pickled vegetables without a word about it on the menu. I don't think they have a kitchen manager in there or a restaurant manager. There are things on the plate but not on the menu. Just off-putting for those who don't like certain food. Below average plating, below average culinary and mid service (like everything in downtown) for a top price. Just a rip off for turists. 99$ for a lobster you can buy at the grocery store for less than 10$ and cook it yourself 100x better. As soon as you ask a server 3 questions and you get 3 ''NOs'', they assume you're not going to tip and this is where all the communication stops. Amateurs. I really struggle to understand the concept of this place. Food is cold, tasteless, stuffed with heavy spices to hide the bad quality, drinks are imported, individually portioned, ambiance is outdated and cold. Ordered a lobster roll, can't taste lobster. Maybe if you are a single person living in DT wanting to have a little bite and a small beverage this joint would meet your 15min snack break. But it's not for a family meal or an occasion. Bland, no personality, no authenticity, below average, mid at best, for a top price. Never again.

    First time at this establishment, food was excellent! They ran out of crab legs (Alaska)😉Price was the norm! Restaurant was packed so it is a good sign! I don’t know if they were short staffed but the waiter was very busy! Still we had a very good service! Will definitely return!

    Pin eye was recommended by our hotel and ot was an excellent choice. We shared the lobster roll (good value) snd the lobster risotto. The monster roll was good size and tasty and included a nice salad and fries. The risotto had 2 lobster tails and was cheesy and rich. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We each had a cocktail which was excellent. The dessert menu only had 2 selections so we passed on dessert but otherwise it was a great choice and conveniently located in the old town.

    J'ai apprécié mon expérience à ce restaurant. L'entrée de pétoncle avec caviar était incroyable et pour la guédille c'est certain que ce n'est pas aussi bon qu'une venant de la Gaspésie, mais je l'ai quand même dévoré. Mon seul bémol était le prix élevé des repas qui sont relativement simple à cuisiner, mais faut s'y attendre quand le restaurant est dans le Vieux Montréal.

    This was really a pretty bad experience. It was our second time at the restaurant. We came back because we enjoyed first time. Mind you, it was a year ago. I really don’t like to give bad review. sometimes mishaps happen, but service takes care of it. Really, don’t waste your money and time. We waited for the dishes to come out over an hour. You would expect an hour would mean something really good. Terrible, tasteless. Even when we complained, the wait person just said I shouldn’t be upset as he didn’t prepare it. So I asked for the chef to come out, to own it. Really I am not sure if there was a chef at all, how bad it was. We waited so long for the food that even some staff were leaving home.

    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.
