    The welcoming was so so - we arrived at 6h30 we ask to take a drink at the bar but the girl told us that we have to take our seat at the counter even if there was no people . Finally we gave our point and we s’est at the bar for a drink . We remark that people arrived around 7h30 at the counter . We eat at the section bar finally and we spend over 500$. The welcoming girl should be more contciencious with clients.

    We both had the salmon. It wasn't good. Tasteless and fishy. A very disappointing experience although the tomato salad and the dessert were good. The best part of the meal was the bread. Unfortunately at the price of our lunch we will not be returning.

    The staff is nice and friendly. However, the seafood didn't have much taste, it was frozen and/or overcooked. Overpriced. It felt like a glorified canteen. Too bad! We had a great experience back in 2019.

    The only saving grace of this place is the decor and interior. First and foremost, we arrived on time for our reservation. However, it took awhile for our seemed to be overwhelmed waitress to approach us. When our coffee was served, it was just “coffee”, no stirrer, no milk, no follow-up. We weren’t asked if we needed cream/milk etc. to our disappointment, we had to call another server just to get what we needed. Second, we were seated for 1.45hrs and our food didn’t come. No one approached us nor even tried to re-assure us that pur food is on the way, or it is currently being prepared in the kitchen. Our server was nowhere to be found within thise 1.45hrs, or even if she was there, she failed to recognize the fact that we have been waiting for 1.45hrs. We had to leave without eating, and will surely never give this restaurant another chance. This is our second time dining in at this restaurant, first experience wasn’t good. Second experience is HORRIBLE! Such a huge disappointment and dismay! The last time I remember eating at this restaurant, the food was mediocre and overpriced. And certainly, it is still overpriced. Only this time, our food didn’t come within the reasonable amount of time. Never again Marcus!

    The food was nothing special. Service was also quite slow during brunch. The decor is very pretty, but overall, maybe it's better at another time of day (e.g., dinner).

    On fridays this place is a club, be careful not to reserve for the lounge like we did, they only serve small plates. The music was so loud, go if you want to party, not if you want to have a calm dinner

    Food is overpriced. 26$ for a cocktail, 55$ for a piece of salmon. With this price you better go to Toqué or Joe Beef. They charged you for water although you asked for tap water. Service is inexistent Music is way too loud People around are getting drunk way too fast. It is very uncomfortable. Overall the ambiance is uncomfortable.

    The design and decor of the dining space was really wonderful. The food was creative and delicious. The service was mediocre. For example, my group of 4 was not served any bread or other amuse bouche to go along with our cocktails and wine as is typical in a fine dining experience. I requested some, saying I was hungry, and was told it would arrive. Our first course did not arrive for 45 minutes, very slow service, and still no bread. I asked the waiter several times about this, and he assured me that it was coming. The table next to us had bread served prior to their first course. However our bread never showed up until our main course. Very disappointing for this expensive of a restaurant with a celebrity chef.

    They have clearly gotten over the covid hump, some changes to the menu but the food remains top notch in taste, freshness, presentation and portion size. Service was friendly, warm and professional. Stylish ambiance. I can't wait to have a reason to go back!

    The food was great as usual. We always had good service as well but this time the server gave us a really poor service. not worth it at all if it would be our first time we would never comeback. But next time we'll ask for our usual server gabriel. Because the one we got on that night wasn't attentive at all and kind of no emtions. But i still recommend this place for an amazing food exeprience

    The woman at the entrance was rude, we came with a couple of minutes late and by how she talked to us, we felt we’ve been “punished”, she was not welcoming at all. That has impacted our experience about the overall feeling. Except that FIRST impression of the place, everyone else was so welcoming and great! Very skilled staff, food was awesome and the place is very well decorated.

    While the restaurant is beautiful and the vibe is great; we all found it VERY expensive for what it was. The portions were quite small, my husband ordered a filet mignon for $64 and I’m not even sure it was 4 oz. I ordered the black cod for $46 and the diameter of the piece of fish was normal but it was mayyybe 3/4” thick… tiny. Size aside, the food just wasn’t incredible so when you’re paying those kind of prices you’re expecting to be wowed. The desert also - nothing special we had the mini babka (i looove babka) and it was really underwhelming. It’s too bad, it was fun/nice to be there but it’s just too expensive not to be amazing.
