we had mothers day lunch there, unfortunately our meal took longer than the norm, the management offered a complimentary cocktail to excuse the delay in service. I saw it as an opportunity to appreciate the ambiance, view, and the Sunday leisurely and not feel rushed.

Very disorganized.
Plates never arrived together.
Half our table received the wrong plates twice.
The second time, we simply kept them as those who received their plates first had almost finished them.
It appeared to be a bother to ask for coffee.

Disappointed.

The food was great. But, the service was horrible. First, the girl at the door doesn't say Hi or look very welcoming. Secondly, The waitress rarely came to look after us. She left us waiting for at least 20 mins before I could reach her. Not, to forget how dirty the coffee cup was when she gave it to me. Also, waited for another 15 mins to have our bills. ( There were not many of people, So I can't say she was busy...)

At least, the food was good!

My husband and I ate lunch here while in Montreal. We went during the week so it was not overly crowded, but most tables were occupied, so I recommmend reservations. The view is what makes the restaurant. Food was delicious (small menu but we both found something we liked) service was friendly, and we will return when in Montreal.

The good:
Fabulous views
Reasonable wine prices
Reasonable menu prices
Nice decor

The not so good:
Long wait for food as others have mentioned
No bread when asked to help keep the hunger pangs at bay with the delay. Instead told to order an appetizer.
Terrace was half full for lunch but they stuck everyone side by side in one half making it noisier and less private.
Waiter didn’t really know his wines and didn’t offer to bring over someone who did.
The food was ok but not memorable .
Several Wasps flying around

Having said all that, I would go back in a heart beat as sitting there in the lovely decor of the roof top terrace on a beautiful day overlooking the water and Old Montreal with a glass of wine that is reasonably priced while my friend entertained me during the wait for lunch that was still decent enough for the price, was magical.

Ce lieu est génial à cause de la vue. Le staff était plus sympathique que lors de ma dernière visite. J’y amène des touristes afin qu’ils puissent admirer la vue mais je les avise que la bouffe est bonne mais sans plus, surtout pour le brunch. Les sandwiches au homard sont bonnes, les mini burgers et les frites au parmesan aussi mais parfois, les sandwichs ont que très peu d’homard et d’autres fois, c’est généreux.

I had a good summer lunch with my two girlfriends. The choice of lunch is a little bit, but the scenery is very good. I believe the dinner will have a better experience. You can park your car for free, which is very rare in old Montreal.

The food is not good at all. Worst meal I’ve had in Montreal. They served me wet lettuce without dressing as my “side salad”
Horrible service. The waiter was very inattentive and rude. Our food took 45 minutes to come out and we were one of the 4 tables there. I don’t recommend this spot to anyone.

The service was good. Very attentive. The food was pretty good. Though my friend ordered only the fruit plate, as she wasn't very hungry, but asked for a croissant or some toast to go with it. No go. Couldn't even order toast! The acoustics didn't seem great. A lot of people, so we were eager to leave and find a place where we could talk.

The view at the terrasse is amazing. We were seated with a fantastic view of the entire old port. Our server was wonderful and very attentive. The brunch menu is small, but has something to accommodate everyone (healthy option, vegetarian option and the classic eggs Benedict). Our reservation was at 11:30 and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed in the beginning, then it started getting busy and lively about an hour later. A great spot that I will have to bring friends and out of town guests to visit.

Great terrasse, service and food, but will only return at night, as we almost boiled to death... There are glass walls to protect from wind and a removable roof that helped create shade, but between the two, it felt like we were sitting in a hot house with no air circulating...
