Sat at the bar - always a preference and here it was perfect. Bartender (Alexei) was fantastic and shared several cocktail samples he was proud to be mixing. Sours including a ‘New Yor Sour’ topped with red wine and using maple syrup was surprisingly great....More

Loved everything about our dinner here. Very attractive dining room and welcoming staff. Food was beautifully prepared and well priced. Staff worked seamlessly together (maitre d' helped clear tables when things got super busy). Our best meal in Quebec.
