    The terrace was lovely and the service amazing. However, we were there just after 4 pm Wednesday and many of the items were not available. Many the kitchen wasn’t prepared for so many people. However, running out of so many items on a limited menu to begin with wasn’t what we were prepared for. Just a heads up to the kitchen to be prepared for more people to have enough food or extend your menu. Beautiful location and fantastic service. Thanks

    The place is amazing and the service good enough. However the quality of the food is still very low. Truffle Fries not cooked and without truffle. Meat of the hamburgers … not the best quality. Pasta over cooked. This amazing place really deserves a chef and food that may bring the entire place to an upper level.

    I wouldn't suggest a late reservation (mine was at 8:45 pm). They were out of appetizers to share, out of fries, burgers, etc. It was almost a joke. I was very disappointed. They also had heaters on that were almost going to give me a sunburn they were so hot. No joke. . As for the food, I had an arugula salad (since you know, no burger) and it was overly drenched in dressing. I barely ate. Thank goodness for the view.

    Great ambiance, service and view! I’ve been here many times and it never disappoints. Only thing I would touch on is the maple bacon strips in the William Grey Burger which I find odd (sweet flavour in a burger is weird to me, but this is only preference). Overall a great experience and would recommend.

    Le vin était malheureusement vinaigré, mais la nouriture était adéquate, mais je m'attendais à mieux pour le prix des charcuteries et fromages (au moins des raisins ou des fraises fraîches auraient été appréciés pour complémenter les assiettes). Le service, l'ambiance et la vue était extraordinaire, alors chapeau! On aurait aimé pouvoir se promener sur la terasse pour voir la vue du centre-ville (on voyait seulement le port de notre table), mais a cause de la COVID on ne pouvait pas profiter de la vue du centre ville, ce qui enlève un peu l'intérêt de venir sur la terasse, mais la vie du port était quand même à couper le souffle!! Merci à notre serveur qui était exceptionnel! :)

    Awesome experience with my two teenagers! We were assigned a table right on the river side and we really enjoyed the overall experience and view. Food was very good, service was fast enough but not pushy. A bit pricy, but creates good memories. We were lucky to enjoy the daytime and nighttime view since we were there from 5:30 to around 7:00. Loved it!

    Made this reservation over a month ago for a special occasion. Given an ok small table, better ones were available. Ok, we let this slide. Ordered cocktails, waitress wanted to take our dinner order even before our cocktails arrived . We told her no, we’d like to enjoy our cocktails first. It took 25 minutes for them to arrive. Restaurant was not busy. Never once did she mention our anniversary, no special treatment, no congratulations. Definitely won’t be returning. Disappointing.
