    Nous avons été agréablement surpris lors de notre visite au Ratafia. Absolument tout était exceptionnel, du service aux cocktails, au menu découverte, incluant les desserts... Une cuisine raffinée, un personnel attentif, et une attention très particulière aux détails. À faire et à refaire, je recommande sans hésitation. Merci beaucoup mesdames!

    Overall the flavours of the food varied between excessively salty and excessively sour. We ordered more than half of the menu, and while the technique and visual presentations of the dishes was strong, the flavours lacked interest. All the dishes are extremely small, and the meat and fish dishes do not come with sides. The lack of a side was a surprise, as the server indicated that these were main dishes. The salad we ordered also lacked dressing, and the dressing was bland and lacked acidity. Also, the acoustics of the restaurant are poor, and the lighting was insufficient were we were seated. Sadly, we couldn't read the menus without relying on our cellphones, which ruins the ambiance of the restaurant. If you're looking for a light snack that you can take nice photos of, then this is the restaurant for you. On the other hand if you want a meal that tastes good, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

    Good food but a bit pricey per plate. Each plate was the size of an appetizer and yet cost like a meal. The noise level was quite high so difficult to have conversations.

    I had made my reservation for Valentine's day weeks in advance, only for them to call me a few days beforehand and tell me it is now a completely set menu with set price. Cost was ridiculous for the food presented, but it's not like I'm going to be able to find a new reservation for Valentine's Day with such short notice. Staff was amazing and price aside the food was good, but I find the business practice of changing my expected reservation to a more expensive service at the last minute unethical and predatory.

    Nous avons pris le menu dégustation partagé à 3 et nous avons ajouté 2 entrées et un dessert. C’était excellent. Nous avons moins aimé le crunchy qui est un baklava revisité, car ce dessert malgré léger n’avait pas le goût de sucré qu’on recherchait à la fin du repas. Nous avons préféré le medovik qui était excellent.

    I really appreciate my experience. The dishes were excellent and fantastic. The choice of wines is fabulous too. The service is very great, and the ambience is pleasant. For me, this wine bar is a tremendous and amazing place who the joy of diner is certain !!! I appreciate, by example, the agnolottis and the crunchy dessert. About the wine, I appreciate many choices of red and white wines. Ratafia is a very great place and giving an extraordinary experience.
