Honestly, I think the chef phoned in sick. Food was absolutely unacceptable.
Tuna and Beef Carpaccio was butchered. shocking they even served it.
Service took hours.
I've been before and was great. This was absolutely terrible dining experience.
I won't go back. ever.
sadly, I would not recommend it!

J’ai été très déçu pour ce que ça m’a coûté! Horriblement cher! L’assiette de charcuterie pour 2 personnes est en fait une assiette pour 1 personne c’est ridicule! 25$ en plus c’est carrément du vol !!! Le risotto était beaucoup trop salé ! Très déçu ! Et que dire de l’addition ....!!!!!!!! Je regrette amèrement d’être venu !!

The service was atrocious. We were there for brunch, and the restaurant was busy, yet they were extremely understaffed.We had to go up to the cash to get someones attention. Plus they ran out of a couple of the dishes on the menu! Won't be back!

An oasis of gracious dining, this is a wonderful restaurant. The truffled omelette was luxurious and perfectly-prepared, and the apple "pudding" was a decadent treat yet not overly sweet. Just a delightful experience enhanced by professional and discreet service.

Group of 6 for brunch, all chose different plates off the menu, plates were well presented, food was very good, except for the pappardelle, the pasta was not cooked enough, the waistaff took the plate back, offered another option on the menu and did not charge my friend her pappardelle plate neither her option plate.

Coffee was a bit bitter to my taste, but that is a personal choice. Wine list a bit expensive, especially when you have the SAQ application and compare the difference in prices from the SAQ and their wine list. Our difference in price was 39.00... I understand that the establishment needs to stock up on the wine, purchase wine glasses and clean them, but 39.00.. If the difference would've been more reasonable, another bottle would have been purchased for sure.

Will go back for sure, beautiful terrasse, nice setup, will be more intelligent in my choices of wines, opt maybe more for cocktails.

Always make a point of going to Salmigondis when visiting Montreal. The food is fantastic. Had the 54oz ribeye and Braised Lamb with Pappardelle. Nothing short of perfection. The service is reliably attentive and the space offers the flexibility of outdoor dining in a private court as well as indoors.

Les plats étaient catastrophiques. La galette de crevettes du bénédictine était dure comme de la roche et l’omelette était trop cuite et sans goût. À 20$ le plat, c’est inacceptable. Je ne retournerai plus jamais à ce restaurant et j’invite tout le monde à faire de même.

I heard a lot of amazing comment for this restaurant so I decided to try it. I made the reservation for the brunch at 1pm on a Sunday. After we ordered our drinks , the waiter told us that more than half of the menu was not available anymore. There was only side dishes available . He told us that they had a lack of food and they couldn’t do something else. We were verry disappointed since we really wanted to try this restaurant. So basically we only ate side dishes.

Trois des plats sur le menu n etaient plus disponibles (le restaurant ouvrait a 10h00 et nous sommes arrives a 12:15). Les portions n etaient pas assez genereuses et je n etais pas satisfaite des plats commandes surtout pour 19$ l assiette. Decevant. Le service etait plutot bon et l ambiance aussi.

No typical brunch menu here which is why I wanted to try it out. But, the tiny portions were a let down. Everyone at the table was still hungry after the Benedict plate. The poached eggs had none of the white, just 2 egg yolks. The polenta is actually a tiny loaf of cornmeal bread with mostly white flour. We barely had any goat cheese and 4 leaves of kale. The three of us ended up ordering some bacon and sharing the blueberry puffed pancake. I don't mind small portions of expensive items (ex: foie gras, steak, caviar) as restaurants have to make a living, but nothing justifies the small portions here. And no, none of us are glutton.

La nourriture de ce restaurant est exceptionnelle, mélange de goût et de texture raffiné. Tout simplement délicieux de l'entrée au dessert. Service très bien, bon choix de vin d'importation privée, conseils judicieux pour le choix. Les chaises pourraient être un peu plus confortables et surtout les tables moins collées les unes aux autres, mais le restaurant est tout petit! Donc en attendant qu'il soit agrandi ce serait dommage de priver les convives d'une si belle expérience! Bravo au chef et toute l'équipe.

Nice brunch. Good option that takes reservations for brunch service. Service, food and ambience were all solid.

The polenta goat cheese Benedict and blueberry ricotta pancakes (more beignets really) were both delicious. Will definitely be back again for brunch or to try dinner service.

I love this place. Food was great as usual. Unfortunately this last time, it was a cold night and the place was quite cold from the time we arrived until about 3/4 hour before we left. This detracted from the overall experience.

Reserved at this restaurant with openTable at 10pm a Friday night. On the restaurant website, it says the closing hour is 10:30pm. They refused to serve us, kitchen was closed, they didn’t receive my reservation. They proposed me to make a reservation for another day, which is fair, but we were still hungry. I don’t know whose fault it is, but there was a pretty bad experience.

C’était une belle découverte. Nous cherchions un resto à proximité. Nous ne sommes pas de Montréal et nous cherchions un endroit simple pour manger.
Finalement, nous nous sommes laissé charmer par l’ambiance et avons décidé de prendre un bon repas et une bonne bouteille de vin. Notre pm a pris une autre direction que prévue mais ma mère et moi en gardons un souvenir très agréable.
Merci !
