Reminded us of Wolfgang s on Park avenue. The atmosphere is lively but with great tables throughout. Pricey but the quality and the portion sizes make this place worth it....at least in our humble opinion. The salmon tartar was well prepared and generously served.....which we...More

Great as usual, very helpful staff, English friendly. Got a tour of the "new:" location by our waiter. MUCH bigger than meets the eye on the 1st floor. Outdoor street side dining and roof top dining (when open) is great. Food $$$$ but worth it....More

Very nice restaurant but honestly, not worth the price. The manager/owner came out yelling at his kitchen staff in front of the entire restaurant and it seemed like the entire staff was always walking on egg shells even before this incident. Very awkward and uncomfortable...More

We had such a great fine dining experience! Charles was our server and he did an excellent job! The wine was flowing, that's the food was delicious, the desert with an excellent ending to a wonderful evening! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Let's forget that steakhouses aren't the same once you leave NY so it's not their fault can't really dock them for that. What is their fault is the poor service, half poured drinks and snake oil salesmanship. Poor service: you have 12 guys that want...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

If you have a ribsteak and a glass of wine it will cost you less than $150 taxes and tip included. I think total damage would be around $120. There is nothing wrong in calling them and ask. But if you order a Wagu or Kobee... More
