Let me begin by saying that I thoroughly enjoy eating well in Montreal and am happy that we have a great selection of restaurants to choose from.
Let me also tell you that one hundred dollars is not what it used to be.
We had 3 cocktails, and 3 appetizers....TOTAL.
the cocktails were good, and as i expect rather pricey for that part of the town. however, the appetizers were microscopic in portion size. now, i am not asking for american style portions, super sized, and spilling over the serving plate, but 2 slivers of chinook salmon no matter how smoked or how natural for 16 dollars isn't my idea of a good app. between that and the scallops which were admittedly quite good, and the third appetizer of carpaccio (lamb) that was also miniscule, we were very disappointed.
now, as far as the service goes. yes everyone was professional, but the service was SLOOOW. I'm not sure if it was because the chef was busy shaking hands with some of the patrons who felt it necessary to meet him, but during the busy hours, the chef should be in the trenches with his troops, ensuring that food is prepared well and in a timely manner.
as you can tell, we never made it to the main course because after an hour, the prospect of a main dish arriving at close to midnight was not appetizing.
so we left, and went to have thai food that was flavourful, and at much more reasonable price.
i do wish dna well, but consider yourself warned...have a big mac before going there!
