The food was subpar. I liked the French onion soup, but the calamari was terrible and the lamb shank had a very strong aftertaste. The beef dumplings were also terrible

Everything was so good during our visit. Food was amazing. Service was very good too. The only thing is that when we asked about a dessert, we were told the kitchen had been closed already. Our reservation was a late one, and that's ok. But it's lovely to get a notice about kitchen closing ahead.

Excellent food and ambiance. We shared a tomahawk steak between the three of us and it was perfect. The Watermelon crush martini was to die for.

The only flaw was our vegetable were too well done. The roast beef was excellent. We highly recommend your restaurant to our friends when they visit Montréal. Our waiter could have been just a bit more friendly.

Waiter was less than pleasant……reread out of wines on their wine list. Ran out of desserts, even with a group of 9 people….we were disappointed.
I had been before in August with a friend and loved it. Sadly, I would not go back in a group

Steaks were fabulous, kudos to the grill master.

Would definitely be back again. Thanks Omar for taking care of us !

Notre première visite ne sera assurément pas la dernière! Quel régal! Pour les yeux et pour les papilles gustatives! La présentation, les couleurs, tout donne le goût d’y revenir! Même la facture qui est, compte-tenu de la qualité des ingrédients, somme toute raisonnable…

Absolutely wonderful evening . Oysters to start …tomahawk to share …wonderful sides (garlic mashed lacked garlic though) and mascarpone berries for dessert was lovely.
Will return next visit to Montreal for sure.

Food is very good, which is most important. However, don't expect to have a quiet conversation. Very "energetic" as the review says - can't hear yourself thing.

La nourriture était excellente mais sinon un service lent et désintéressé. On devait demander pour avoir du service, de simple demande de base tel que de l'eau, du pain. Nous avons également attendu plus de 20min avant que l'on vienne prendre notre commande ou les serveurs préférait écouter le match de hockey derrière le bar. Nous avons également commandé du vin et nos coupes on été emporté derrière pour être remplis, c'est la première fois que ça arrive. (Il y avait aucune carte de vins également)

De plus, il est indique "tenue de ville" dans la description mais c'est faux, plusieurs personnes étaient habillé en jeans et coton ouaté ou avec des chandail de sport.

Bref, le prix de restaurant de luxe mais on en est vraiment loin niveau expérience et service.

Payer une facture de 200$ pour une expérience de cage au sport, vraiment décevant.
