La musique était beaucoup trop forte et les portions ne valaient pas le prix (entrée à partager). C’est une belle expérience à vivre pour la vue, mais je ne pense pas y retourner.

It's a lovely atmosphere, food is ok, nothing remarkable. The view is the highlight of the terrace. Service is quite slow, but apparently is a thing in MTL these days.

Drinks and alcohol are fairly priced, the food is overpriced and cheap. I suggest to only go for a good drink and the view.

J’ai pris le suprême de volaille et il y avait un os dans la pièce de viande. Je n’ai jamais vu ça. Aussi, on nous a facturé 3$ de plus pour notre verre de vin (x2). Il a fallu demander correction de la facture.

Good: Vue was great. Service was pleasant and prompt. The waitress was very nice.

Bad: They didn't have 2 items on the menu that I wanted to order. Food was pretty mediocre. Only the shrimp appetizer was decent. The trout, beef tartar and fowl all tasted bland.

This was our first restaurant dining-out experience as a couple since the pandemic struck. We had indicated on the online registration form that we were going to be there for mine and my partner's anniversary. They didn't even bother setting aside a nice table for us (we were placed near the entrance at the crossroads of where servers would fetch drink orders, and customers coming in and out for the bathroom). Further... individuals who were roaming about unmasked in the eating area were not reminded by staff to follow the mask guidelines. Our server was so late even take cocktail orders, and so to compensate for their inattentiveness, we just ordered everything at once. They further did not check-in on us adequately, aside taking our orders and my partner flagging her down for the bill - which came 10 minutes after we asked for it, when there were few tables of people left - we saw her no more than twice. The fish was overcooked and under-seasoned, and the boeuf tartare was a solid experience. We tipped 20% because we want to be in solidarity with servers who are working under these new circumstances - but I hope management takes stock of this review. We felt like we were the least important guests in the terrasse (when we should feel like we were equitably attended to) on a night that should have been something special after such a hard year.

Well-organized set-up of COVID-19 safety measures in place, so I felt safe to dine among others knowing that discrete Plexiglas barriers were in place between close diners.
Good choice of wines and meal options. However, it was not pleasureable to bite into raw halves of Brussel sprouts that came with my guinea fowl meal. The lingering bitterness just killed the flavors of my otherwise tasty meal.
The view of the Montreal port was amazing and the vibe was energetic and welcoming.

The waitress brought the main course before the appetizer.

It actually ruined a special evening. Eating the main course before the appetizer.

La vue est époustouflante mais la nourriture (brunch) est basique et peu diversifiée. Sûrement parfaite pour des touristes de passage mais peu attractive pour des Montréalais à la recherche d’un bon brunch!

We had a great view from our table and staff were very nice. Service was a bit slow/inattentive, we ordered the Sunrise Sangria and wouldn’t order again - it’s just meh. Because you have to order food if you buy alcohol, we just ordered fries which were quite good!

L'endroit est magnifique, belle ambiance. Peut-être est-ce à cause de la pandémie, mais disons que la bouffe mériterait un peu plus d'amour. Nous avons mangé du réchauffé... Une fois que vous le savez, profitez de l'endroit et de la vue!

I am VERY disappointed. The french fries were raw inside and burnt outside (literally). For a filet mignon at 54$ it is unacceptable. We received a salad after the table was cleared (no utensil to eat it). The employees did not seem to care. I do NOT recommend this place. Way too expensive for the poor quality.

I love the place. The food is delicious and staff polite. We went on a busy day. So, it was a bit noisy. It might seem pricey but you get what you pay for.
The only 3 drawbacks for me are that: it was a rainy day (you didn’t get to really enjoy it as opposed to a sunny bright day + although it was cold, staff did not turn the heat on for customers), fries are a little too salty, and we can only stay for 2hrs (although we had an appetizer, it took over an hour 15min before the main menu was served, which doesn’t leave us that much time left to eat it, have a dessert, digest a little before leaving). Nonetheless, I would recommend this place.

We booked our brunch here, but we were not sure because it started POURING as soon as we stepped out (from the picture I could not tell it had cover/good cover), we got there (30 minutes late, had to stop to find umbrellas) and they promptly seated us. They had full cover at the patio (you will not get wet at all). Brunch was absolutely delicious (and so was the view!). Would totally recommend!
