Returned after being blown away five years ago. Walked in without a reservation right at 5pm opening and was surprised that we weren't the only ones there. The food is debauchery. It defines unctuous. And even though I felt gross after and I am sure...More

Just a wonderful experience. Sat at the bar table in front of the kitchen, and enjoyed the energy behind the cooking. Began with the Cromesquis de Foie Gras and a glass of champagne (a bit extravagant, as their combined cost was C$36!). Many of their...More

Not worth the time nor calories, not to mention the saturated fat. The period of glory has long past.

My husband were lucky and got a late reservation one night during our trip. The restaurant is on the smaller side and is jammed packed. The food is great and the service is quick. The Carpaccio was so good we ordered a second

We made reservation before our trip to Montreal and were really looking forward to a nice dinner at this place but we had an awful experience. Let us start with the good things: service is good as our waitress patiently explained the various items to...More

I did see children there. But I would warn you, the restaurant is loud and it may be a tight squeeze. Depends on how much you want to try that Duck In A Can. ;)

It depends on the day and time but it should generally be at least 4-5 weeks in advance. We chose a Thursday and thought we would be okay if we reserved for 2 people 2 weeks in advance but we could only get bar seats.
