    It was our first time eating at Soif and it was because of L’Outaouais au Menu. We really enjoyed the experience, both food and wine. We took a wine tasting option with our menu. The choice of wine was wonderful except they always kept the same glass for our 3 different tastings. That was disappointing. I liked the meal with the exception of the desert. For these 2 reasons, I didn’t give it a 5 stars but will definitely return.

    Le Soif est un des trésors de la gastronomie hulloise. Chaque plats est confectionné avec soin, et le personnel attentif fait toujours des recommandations d'accords-vin réussies. Le "bébé" de Veronique Rivest est l'endroit parfait pour les foodies et amateurs de vin qui souhaitent se faire plaisir dans une ambiance décontractée et sympathique!

    Nous étions inscrits à Outaouais au menu, mais le site de l’organisme portait à confusion et nous avons finalement seulement pu prendre le menu standard. C’était bon mais l’entrée aux pleurotes était moyenne. L’accord des vins était très bon.

Cependant nous avions réservé une table haute ce qui est bien par contre les tabourets ne sont pas très confortables! Si je dois passer plus d’une heure au restaurant je préfère être bien assis! Cependant malgré tout je vous recommande fortement cette endroit!

    Même si excellentes, nous avons trouvé les portions petites pour le prix. Malgré que nous avions demandé une corbeille de pain à partager, la serveuse ne l'a mise que sur ma facture, sans vérifer; très gênant de le faire changer à ce stade, je l'ai donc payé seule. À part ce "faux pas", le service était excellent,

    Great food, great wine (hundreds of bottles available), great service (our waiter was helpful yet discreet). A bit noisy in the main dining room. I wished the menu had a few more choices but that's just me. Looking forward to go back during a different season to experience a new menu.
