We went here as a group of 30, for brunch the day after my wedding. The food was delicious, the staff was super great with us, and the ambiance fantastic. Would highly recommend!

Horrible experience. The food was really bad. Steak tartare was not rare but medium cooked and very spicy, and the quantity was very small. The salmon tartare was more a mustard tartare. Too much mustard and spices no possibility to taste the salmon. And the smashes fries were very salty. Among all that the beer wasn’t cold!!!! A wedding anniversary qualified as a disaster. We took the dessert in another place. I don’t recommend at all.

Exceptional service - and for my group of 10 business colleagues the staff adorned a single table with beautiful glassware and refined touches. The staff loved it - it was more of an evening event than just a first class dinner. We'll be back! Our thanks for a memorable experience.

I think we may have come on a night that they were short staffed and crowded. Service was extremely slow (30 MIN to get a cocktail.) After mentioning to the staff that we would dine elsewhere they immediately picked up the service so we stayed and enjoyed the food. However the place was pretty hot and my wife was ready to leave. Overall it looks like a lot of diners go their frequently and the food is very good

It was a beautiful night but extremely humid, the terrace was door were open...However, in the restaurant it was extremely hot and uncomfortable the table next to us kept wiping their faces on their napkins.

Maître D was excellent. The wine we ordered was not the one brought to our table (it was a lesser version which our friend who happens to be a sommelier spotted when it was brought) but it was corrected with another great wine by our Maitre D who was very cool, calm and apologetic. Too bad there was no tartelette d'escargots. The escargots gratinés were delicious but probably much richer. The morue Quinoa was spectacular and light. The St Emilion was spectacular as well. Nine Nice and Aperol great beginning to the meal.

The food was delicious and just the right portion sizes. We were 4 people. For appetizers 2 had the beet and goat cheese salad, 1 had the escargots and 1 had the salmon tartar. All enjoyed their appetizers. For the main meal 1 had the salmon, 1 had the chicken, 1 had the steak frites and 1 had the pappardelle pasta with bolognese sauce. All were delicious!

Overall, excellent. Decor, table settings, wine glasses, etc... all amazing. Music most enjoyable and just at the right volume, not too loud. Food delicious. Shrimp/Gnocci op notch. Great salmon tartar. Onion soup excellent. Mussels in an exquisite sauce. First bottle of Grand Cru wine was decanted properly, second bottle of the same was just poured from the bottle. Time wasn't taken to decant it. Wine glasses were not changed. The second bottle of wine was poured directly into glasses that still had wine from the first bottle. Not proper. Having said this, we would all definitely go back.

Perfect evening. New winter menu is more elaborated and anything we tried in appetizers and main dish section was great. Duo performing live jazz was a great, discreet yet imposing and service was great, efficient still intimate. This place is just getting better and better...

We were there for MtlaTable and unfortunately our waiter was very busy. My husband got an incorrect order and when he received the correct order, the rest of us had finished and he had to eat alone. I would return but eat at the bar.

Montreal’s best new restaurants to try in 2017

Montreal’s best new restaurants to try in 2017

While most new restaurants seem mired in a battle to outdo each other with innovative concepts, gimmicky themes and/or unique propositions, it is actually quite refreshing to see a classic French bistro/brasserie join the fray. The prototypical menu featuring escargots, tartares, cassoulet and bouillabaisse won’t set off any fireworks, but a fun night among friends around a glass or bottle of French wine is a sure bet at Griffintown’s Licence IV.
