Enjoyed dining daily at this restaurant during my brief stay at the Montcalm. Excellent food, wine and great service within an elegantly furnished environment.

The service was attentive and excellent (in spite of having multiple large groups), the food was perfect, the venue was great for our group and most importantly it was fully air-conditioned on the hottest day of the year!
