Didn't know what to expect but it was quite good. Wine list is excellent but they should add a few craft beers for good measure cause sometimes it's what you need.
Salmon tartare was excellent, fresh and well seasoned.
Grilled cheese was also very good.
We had the appetizer plate with hummus, ricotta, nuts and crispy bread to start and it was well put together.
Great spot for a preshow meal.

We had dinner there before a show, The wine ist was, ( as we were first told) sold out in all the more affordable sections, later we were told the reason is that they are changing their wine list and are about to switch over to the new one ( shouldn't you have the new wines ready then to replace some on the card?) We decided on a red wine, which came ice cold, chilled like a white wine. again we inquired how this could be and we were told that it was caused by the cold weather outside????? I was not aware that wine cellars were out side? Anyways all of the other 1000s of restaurants in Montréal also have cold weather and the wine comes at the right temperature...
Food came within 10 minutes, prefab, very obvious and also very cold ( fridge) This lace might be good for a drink after the show, but for dining just impossible

We are sorry that you had a bad experience for this visit. We understand your concern and we are truly sorry about it. However, we want to precise that our food is all made from scratch in the kitchen. We have a big team working hard and fast to assure that all customers are served as fast as possible before going to their show. For the wine list, that was unfortunetaly a bad timing because we just changed the wine list which has now 150 bottles. Our server might have done a bad joke for the temperature of the wine because obviously there is no connection with the weather outside and the set temperature of our cellar which is 15 degrees. We hope to see you in the future and be able to make a good second impression. Lyne Simard, co owner

We were so happy with the choice of this place for a dinner in Montreal. It happened to be right across from our hotel, but hidden in the "undergound" next to the Museum of Modern Art. The menu was sophisticated including a delicious fois gras appetizer. I had a parmentier that was sweet with parsnip in the mash. Wine by the glass choices were excellent. The service was friendly and efficient. You will not be sorry.

Our server David made our dining experience truly memorable. His good humor and knowledge of the menu and appropriate wines was above par. The half confit tomatoes, as well as the octopus salad were excellent. The main course of salmon tartar and beef tartar were truly exquisite.The wine suggested by David was a perfect balance for the salmon and beef tartars.We were not rushed ,our dining experience lasted 2.5 hrs, a perfect beginning to a performance of Les Grands Ballets... Merci beaucoup David, en esperant etre dans votre section a notre prochaine visite.

We were lucky to get a table before an 8pm show without reservation.
Very fresh food, fast efficient service and great attentive waiter in David.
Would definitely recommend before a show!
