Wandering past we were attracted by the busy chairs and tables outside but chose inside to get away from the cigarette smokers. Very lovely attentive staff and good food. We enjoyed the French Onion Soup, Fois Gras, Mussels and the Crab & Avocado. Good background...More

Don't expect much from the service or kitchen, both are acceptable for a quick lunch or dinner. The music is banal internet radio nonsense and not in keeping for a traditional "French" brasserie. Having just arrived in MTL I now know the better options.More

If you want the real deal (and you may not), try this Parisian style bistro. The food is average as is the service - scattered and brusque.

I was there a few times with family and friends. Very well located in the heart of downtown Montreal. Nice bistro style restaurant. We usually take the brunch. Food is tasteful and of good quality. We were not disappointed.

The lunchtime special gives you a starter and dessert with your main. Our beef carpaccio and salmon tartare were good, the filets mignons were excellent and the sorbet and chocolate mousse were good standard. Service was friendly and swift. The decor is traditional brasserie.

We had a large group 11 with some young children. It was amazing, not a bad meal was had and the service was spectacular. This will be on my go to list for Montreal any time I am back in the city.

Too pricey for the quality of food.  Do not order the onion soup; it is too expensive and its consistency is very low (very watery).  The only dish that was well prepared was cassoulet Toulousain.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
