Nous avons été très bien accueilli par l’hôtesse très polie et courtoise. La bouffe était très bonne sauf mon jus d’orange qui n’était pas fraîchement pressé mais un simple jus de boîte fait de concentré.
Aussi j’avais précisé que j’avais besoin d’une chaise haute pour mon bébé, elle était bien en place mais l’attache était cassée donc ils ont du la changer.
Sinon tout s’est bien passé, je reviendrais à cette place.

Dans le cadre du happening gourmand, le menu est très correct pour le prix. Quelques déséquilibres dans les plats : les parpadelles au boeuf braisé étaient bonnes mais dans une sauce très salée... Et le dôme de pomme pas assez punchy.. il manquait un petit quelque chose pour twister le plat et arriver au niveau de qualité des plats que nous avons eu l'occasion de goûter lors d'un passage précédent...
Mais le plus dérangeant est un relâchement au niveau du service... Pratiquement 3h pour un menu unique, une salle à moitié remplie, et des serveurs qui discutent près du bar...

Location is fabulous in old Montreal. It wasn’t that busy but food still took some time. Our server tried best to accommodate. Seafood wasn’t there strong suit but duck tartare and foie gras were excellent.

Excellent food with a nice Old-Montreal setting, but service was a bit spotty. The wait staff were nice, but not very knowledgeable, especially about wine that should accompany the special New Year's Eve menu. I was a bit underwhelmed that even though it was a special New Year's Eve menu, there was no midnight/champagne-style toast, given the price charged.

Nous avions réservé 3 semaines à l'avance avec une demande spéciale, à notre arrivée, notre table avait été assignée à un autre couple. On nous a dit être désolé.
Le repas était très bien et les serveuses très attentionnées.

Extremely slow service. Restaurant was not busy. I had emailed a week earlier about tasting menu and didn’t get a response. The food was good. Small portions for the price. But I did not feel like a valued customer but rather a bother. Huge contrast to lunch at Les Enfants Terrible where the staff seemed to enjoy being there and serving the food.

We decided to go to Verse because they were open for Christmas and heard good things about the food and the decor. Unfortunately the tasting menu was limited and the black cod which my wife ordered was uncooked twice, first time we told the server that is was not defrost beforehand and the second time the cook didn’t listen to the first complaint because he repeated the first mistake. Then they charged the full price even though the fish was untouched. We are from the West and we have never been charged for a meal we didn’t eat they reasoned that you ordered the tasting menu so you should pay for it. I would not recommend this place.

We received our appetizer and our main course at the same time, and once we were almost done with our main course, the waitress brought bread and butter. The coordination was not on point. Our table was way too close to the people next to us. The food was good though, but overall, I don't think I will be going back. (note: they did have a wedding at the hotel that night, that might explain the service)

I loved the food. Had an absolutely divine squash soup. Beef shoulder was probably the most tender beef I’ve ever eaten. Food was plated beautifully.

Service was slow, even though the restaurant was practically empty. Staff were very nice. Just slow. Also, the English translations in the menu had some mistakes, which led my wife to order a dish she didn’t want. They brought us the lunch menus even though it was dinner time. And they forgot our dessert order so we had to repeat it after waiting patiently for it to be served.

Amazing food though.

J'ai globalement apprécié mon expérience au Verses à l'occasion du Montréal à table. Le seul hic, comme c'est le cas de la plupart de ce genre de restaurants, c'est la petite quantité qui est servie pour le prix que l'on paie. D'autres restaurants qui participent également au Montréal à table offrent un menu moins cher et plus copieux. Les petites portions font peut être le bonheur de certains, mais ce n'est pas mon style .

we went for mtlàtable and the menu on the day of didn't match what had been online which was a bit disappointing. there were 2 courses for the brunch of this event and the first was incredible which might have made the second one even more disappointing. i've been here for dinner several times and always loved that so it might just have been one lacklustre dish for the main this one time. friendly and attentive staff, nice atmosphere, love the area.

Heure de notre réservation : 9h30, un dimanche. J'ai choisi ce restaurant afin de profiter du BRUNCH. En plus, d'apprendre sur place, que le menu du BRUNCH n'était pas disponible avant 11h ce matin-là, nous avons dû attendre nos «simples» déjeuners 1 heure après avoir passé la commande à la serveuse. Nous les avons reçus tièdes !!! On m'a dit qu'il ont eu des problèmes avec les cuisine... Me semble, oui! Nous étions à peine 12 personnes dans le resto qui pouvait en contenir au minimum 100. Désolé mais je n'y retournerai plus. J'aurai préféré me faire dire qu'il ne pouvait pas m'accueillir...
