We heard so many good things about this restaurant. The restaurant is small and cozy and I recommend making reservation. The whole menu is written on a chalkboard and the waiter took his time to explain to us the menu. The entrees (carpaccio, burrata and...More

What a meal! Their risotto is flavourful, their veal succulent, and their desserts tasty and well balanced. Of particular note, the stuffed zucchini flowers were better than any I have ever had.

No trip to Montreal is complete without a visit here. Excellent sourced products served with care and knowledge. Absolutely one of my favourite restaurants in Montreal.

Great wine list. Great welcome. As a local, this is a recurring address in my dining notebook. The food is luxurious with a menu that rotates with the season. It is not cheap but worth it for a special occasion.

Been here many times over the years and it continues to satisfy, on many levels. Welcoming, cozy, not at all stuffy and importantly, not noisy (like many of the newer restos). Top notch yet friendly service, nice presentation, inventive menu that changes frequently. Portions are...More
