Who in their right mind serves fish over baba ganoush? It was silly and no salt - we asked four times for better quality non commercial salt to come out of the kitchen and the chiefs refused to give us any. The gazpacho was too sweet and too pureed.
Last year the chef was great and this year they don't know what they're doing in the kitchen in an effort to make a less gourmet restaurant they simply failed even to make bistro food.

Un de nos endroits préférés pour un souper entre amis. Cadre très agréable, service empressé mais discret, plats savoureux. En prime, l’été, nous montons sur le toit pour un verre de fin de soirée. Tout le monde est ravi!

Nice ambiance and very good food though due to how hot it was that particular day, it was feeling hotter and hotter after a while. If there was air-conditioning it wasn't very effective.

Food and service were excellent. Great location in Old Montreal. Hot night and bad ac system management caused our location to be warmer than desirable.

Very pricy for the quality of the food. The air conditioning was not working and so it was very hot. The quality of the service was good overall

Dined at Verses on a Friday night. Staff was welcoming, attentive, and professional. Four in our group ordered four different aps and three different entrees. All were delicious! I would unreservedly recommend Verses and look forward to my next visit.

While the food was excellent, the service left a lot to be desired. Our sever wasn’t very friendly, and I even had to visit the bar to get my own drink at one point. Overall, we enjoyed our meal (especially our table by the window), but they need to rethink their staffing.

J’ai toujours adoré ce restaurant et j’y amène mes clients de l’ext Du pays qui sont plus souvent qu’autrement charmés pour l’ambiance et la gastronomie. Cependant, cette fois ci, ce n’était pas un Wow. Pour mon plat de porc, je n’ai pas senti le lien entre les différents aliments. Cela ne m’empêchera pas d’y retourner.

Food was not what it used to be. Mediocre with a nice presentation. Forgot our drinks, mixed up drink orders, fish was not fresh at all. Ambiance is amazing, it’s too bad the food no longer matches. Definitely understated rooftop for cocktails, would continue to go back for drinks only.

My husband and I ate dinner at Verses on a recent trip to Montreal. We had a very good meal. I had the lamb and my husband had the filet mignon. The service was very good.

Went for30th wedding anniversary. Had been several times in the past and always had excellent service and meal. This night ( a Monday) seemed to have been much busier than expected as were either unattended or rushed through the meal. No drink request other than water, then when finally ordered came as the appetizer ( very good btw - grilled octopus ) was served. Literally as I was lifting the final mouthful, the plate was removed and the main was served ( also very good - pork collar confit). We were out in an hour or so. So, an okay experience from a place where usually would rate as 4-5 stars. I guess everyone can have an off night.

We had brunch, fairly priced, food was fresh and excellent. Staff was very friendly and attentive as usual. I love the setting: relax-chic. Would definitely recommend for brunch or dinner. This place is in old-Montreal top 3 .

Pre theatre dinner. First time there. Would go again, but it is a bit more expensive compared to other restaurants at the same level, so will not go often.

Is there a new management in place? I have been here many times and it's the first time that I have been diasppointed with the service. We were there for brunch and ordered Mimosas, which took forever. We then ordered a brunch table dhote that included a poached egg that was left out of both of our dishes. It took so long to get our waitress's attention that we had to ask other staff. The waitress saw us, but never came over. We would brunch here regularly with friends, but not sure that I will retun.

We absolutely loved this little bistro tucked into a quiet corner in old Montreal. Our host was fantastic and seated us in a cozy, romantic spot right by the window where we could comfortably converse. The food is pricey but you do get what you pay for. We ordered the snapper and the leg of lamb. Our meals were perfectly seasoned, portioned and paired to create a memorable flavour profile. This is definitely a place we would recommend!
