Review of Macaroni on St-Laurent

I have been asked by another poster to come and post a review of my dinner at Macaroni supper club on St-Laurent street. I will probably offend people while doing so even though it is not my intention. A friend of mine had asked me to go to a place where there would be ambiance and she wanted that before food. She needed a bit of cheering up and since we were on vacation, I tried finding a place like that. I came up with Macaroni supper club and made a reservation. I have to say that the booze was the best thing about the place. We started with a cocktail and the bartender did a nice one. We then ordered food...I knew the food would not be the best, but I did not think it would be that bad. I had a salmon tartare and to tell you the truth, I had just a few bites because I was scared to get food poisoning!! It was so bad, it was not even funny. We each had pasta and I advise people to stick with that. My friend had a plate of pasta with mushroom and truffle oil and it was not that bad. I had the mac and cheese and it was okay.

I could talk about the clientele but it could get nasty and I could receive death threats! I have been to Buena Note and Globe in the past, I don't know why but I did, but Macaroni is like a bad replica of those places. It is like a cheap imitation where people who don't have the money go to flash something, I don't know what, but they try to flash. The waitresses are dressed in a bad fuschia low-cut mini-dress. Our waitress was nice but I did not ask her about today's stock trades!

The only good thing was the music. We did not stick around though because they only wanted to get rid of us. They had never mentionned that we had to leave at a certain hour but at one time they told us that we had to leave, even though we had ordered cocktails, a bottle of wine and after dinner drinks.

Like I said, I don't want to offend anyone who goes there weekly but I would not advise people to go there unless they want to have fun, eat pretty bad food and be shown on their way out if they don't fit in the hostess' idea of ideal patrons!

Spend a bit more and go to Buena Note if you really want to experience the St-Laurent's experience!
