    I had dined there this past Friday Sept 4th, 6PM I picked the $42 menu that consisted of appetizer+ main course + dessert. Started off with the pan-seared duck liver: nicely pan-seared with a beautiful caramelly-looking enjoyably slightly crusty outside texture. The inside was perfectly evenly cooked and ideally smooth. Kudos to the accompanying shallot chutney: although tiny in portion, it was a mouth-drooling marmalade/jam-alike chutney. Would have preferred the accompanied yellow beans to be warmer but it's really no biggie at all! Delectable! At Main course extravaganza, the braised lamb was served: that was a generous portion of fully flavoured, perfectly cooked (so tender -- on the inside -- that it would slide off the bone effortlessly). The accompanying risotto was very interesting and refreshingly different from my usual risottos: it had some fresh enjoyable crunchy corn seeds, pieces of carrots, a perfect lite creamy consistency with a subtle enjoyable touch of sweetness (there was also what looked and tasted like slices of tamarind. I think this was sun-dried tomato, but they did really taste like tamarind. Those were a well thought addition to that savourish risotto). The risotto was evenly seasoned with amazing little savourish crunchy grains of rice (looked like arborio rice, to me)!! Awesome! Dessert : Pot de crème, hibiscus flower, berry fruits, maple syrup -> Served in a glass, the delectable snowy white cream was a blast! It was covered by the freshest berries I could think of. As if they had been picked up right from the fields, rfaol! Great! 5/5 for the dessert. The decor itself is typical bistro chic, with a simple and yet trendy enough decor. Omnipresence of dark wood, low light, couple of discrete mirrors, some intense-red and intense-lemon green touches here and there. Some nice, not loud-at-all cute balads (some in french, some in English..and it's NOT kitsh music!!) background music. Lovely!

    Beaucoup trop cher pour ce que c'est, réputation surfaite. Pour la même qualité-prix, allez ailleurs !

    Nous étions 9 et tous le monde sans exeption a été charmé. Notre serveur (ƒric) et Sandra on fait un travail super, la nourriture était plus qu'exellente, l'ambiance parfaite. Un seul petit hic. Peut-être un peu trop de temps d'attente entre les services, mais c'est un détail. La carte des vins est très belle aussi. Bref une expérience à revire. Attention: C'est un restaurant de fine cuisine, ceux qui croit s'en tirer pour 25$ ou moins, aller ailleurs, mais ce resto vaut la peine d'être découvert.

    Excellent restaurant. La nourriture est creative et soignee. Les desserts sont decadents. Le prix est raisonnable pour la qualite des plats. Il est tres etonnant que pour un vendredi soir le restaurant n'a eu que tres peu de clients. Le service est tres attentionne et sympathique.

    nous avons beaucoup apprécié ce resto bien sympathique. Il est étrange que les montréalais ne l'aient pas encore découvert. C'est peut-être mieux ainsi. Cela assure la tranquilité des lieux. Cela prouve qu'un excellent resto n'a pas à être branché ou à la mode pour nous régaler. Nous lui souhaitons longue vie et à la prochaine visite. Nous y sommes allés à 4 ou 5 reprises et n'avons jamais été décus.

    Nous sommes allés pour la deuxième fois à ce restaurant ce samedi et je dois dire que les deux fois, les plats étaient succulents et les portions généraux; l'épaule d'agneau fondait dans la bouche et que dire des pétoncles poêlés. Je vais certainement y retourner. Bravo

    Nous y sommes allés un lundi soir, le resto était vide. La nouriture était excellente, les portions généreuses (sauf pour le foie gras)et la carte des vins très correcte.
