A gourmet tavern where you will feel just like home Gaspar’s kitchen serves up fresh, pub-style cooking and wide variety of local beers and spirits. The menu: soulful staples, original cocktails and friendly service in a classic tavern setting. The space, originally a 19th-century warehouse, preserves much of its old-school furnishings but with a few novel kicks. And come summer, it welcomes the warm weather with its big terrace on rue de la Commune.

We reserved for lunch at 12:30 on Sunday. Lots of empty tables and we chose a patio table. The restaurant was very understaffed and so the service was extremely slow. It took 20 min to get menus and water. Another 20 to place an order. Another 20 for food and drinks to show up. My Macho salad was delicious although the chicken was over grilled. The server apologized for the slow service and offered something from the menu complimentary but this was near the end of the meal approaching 2pm and we didn’t want to wait another 20 min for some comp food or beverage. Service was pleasant under the circumstances.

Nous avons attendu plus de 30 minutes pour avoir un serveur et après être finalement passé de la terrasse à l'intérieur on a pu voir une serveur qui c'est trompé sur une des commandes.

We loved our experience here and our server Elizabeth. She knew the menu, the cocktails, and beers and her recommendations were spot on. Nice atmosphere, beautiful place, great food (loved the duck poutine) and great service.

Loved the location of the restaurant. The service.. was chaotic. Every time I asked for something simple, like extra napkins, it took 10 min. The waiter I had was very friendly but he was obviously managing too many tables. He had a smile on his face every time I saw him so I can’t fault him for trying to do his best. The food was mediocre. Dessert I ordered tasted stale. Not sure I would return to this particular establishment.

After reading good reviews at Trip Advisor I gotta say that I was really dissapointed with this place. We were craving fish and chips and it was one of the worst fish and chips I've had in m life. Salad was so bitter that it broke the taste of the whole dinner for me, my boyfriend seeing my face expression didn't even touch his. Very slow service, we've only got water at the end of the meal despite asking several times. Definitely won't be returning.

Excellent food and friendly, quick service. Nice selection of wines and local beers. Lively atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. Prices very reasonable, tho part of that is the US$ rate now.

Le serveur nous a recommandé un vin au verre sans nous donner le prix,
le vin était très cher, 21$ le verre, on n'a pas trop apprécié.
À part ça tout était parfait, service courtois et rapide.
La nourriture était aussi très bonne.

Live music on Wednesdays. Those guys were good. Excellent food, cocktails, wine. Friendly server but a bit overwhelmed by our bilingual table of 6 with a lot of special needs. The place had run out of almost everything on their drinks list but didn't tell her in advance so she had to co.e back and offer very few alternatives. The manager came to apologize but didn't comp anything. It could have been handled better given we must have spent $500 but I assume it was a rare glitch. I'd go back without much hesitation.

We booked a table and originally were seated inside (we weren't asked inside or out); the noise level was off the chart and we asked to move and were given a table outside on the street.... so much better . Started wit the mixed cheese and chacutiere platter which was really good. I had the cod which was really nice and wife and daughter had chicken salad and the burger, all good. Service was ok and a good experience all round. So glad we moved outside

There was a mixup with our order, but they corrected it and didn’t charge for missing items. Food was mostly very good. Some dishes seemed unsalted.

Staff was friendly and service was top notch! This is a tavern, so the drinks consisted of old standbys such as Old Fashion, Long Island Ice Tea, and several whiskey based drinks, to name a few. Our meals were the Tavern Cheeseburger and a half rack of ribs. Burger was great! Meat fell off the bone on the ribs, and the BBQ sauce was so good! The fries are delicious!!! We would visit again.

Unfortunately, we were seated near some obnoxiously loud patrons, and the meal took too long to arrive. That said, the charcuterie board was great, as was the steak frites. The mussels were fair.
