The food is good as are the drinks. The service is awful unless you are a recognized face to one of the wait staff. Tables of elderly regulars are greeted like family while other tables are left unattended for long periods of time. Informed the...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
