OMG a very average desert chain that caters to the young crowd who don't really know what a basic good desert is .... Just feed them chocolate in any form and they will eat it up.
Ordered the Smores thinking that it would be prepared fresh... like
actually melting the marshmellow with a torch prior to serving.... but I was given a pre-prepared mass dessert with a hard marshmellow on top.
When I suggested that that they should like maybe melt it beforehand.. our 16 year old waitress said... "oh yes.. that's a good Idea... I'll suggest it to the cooks"... well d'uh!!
Go if you just want a chocolate fix and don't mind being around groups of giggling teenage girls served by teenagers in stupid floppy pastry hats....
If you want a good quality dessert in the presence of adults, maybe consider going some place else.... can you tell I'm not a teenager :-).
** My review is actually for the resto in Saint-Therese which I did not see on the site.
For a place with a history of Mt-Royal Hotdog and with the words 'Hot Dog' in their name, they still manage to screw up making the classic fastfood staple.
Our weiners were under cooked and not soft and hot as a steamy should be and the Toastee 'Toasted' version with the toasted bun,
the weiner wasn't even grilled... c'mon!! ... Don't deserve to have 'Hot Dog' in your name if you can't even get that right.
A Nice resto in Morin Heights, unfortunately with not the brightest management staff.
While in Morin Heights we thought we found a nice romantic resto with good food for a Birthday celebration.
Well all went well, until we were presented our bill and notice I was over charged for my meal. Pointing this out, the waitress went to rectify the error and after much discussion with the back staff, I was informed that I was actually served the more expensive cut of meat .. And get this would have to pay the difference. Had the filet mignon been listed at the more expensive price, I would not have ordered it.
Rather than accepting their error and using the well known saying in business that "The customer is always right" they refused to budge and insisted that I pay the difference. Being tired and not wanting to argue further, I didnt put up much of a fight a fight and just wanted to leave (mistake-1) and accept their complementary digestive at the bar to make up for the difference (mistake #-2)
Thinking about it after, I should NOT have given in, accept the drink and worse, actually left a tip (mistake-3). The difference in price was not too much and definitely something the resto could have absorbed, but just enough to leave a bad taste in my mouth about this resto, and regretting not driving abit further to St- Sauveur and select from the many restos there. My inital gut feeling.
Too bad, but it is a nice spot and the food is good on the High-end side.
Finally got around to try APDC.
Looking at the clientelle, it shows its one of Montreal's 'Must Visits' as the tourists and first timers seemed to outnumber the regulars.
Portions seem abit small but when combined with an entree, it ends up being quite filling.. Get ready .. the food is very rich!
Duck Breast Excellent and The Melting pot of sausages abit small and stingy on the Mashed Potatoes. but good
Big miss of the evening was the Creme Brule - a l'erable (Maple) . Top was soft and not hard & crispy.
Should have mentioned it before we inhaled it.
Overall a Great Vibe and Friendly staff Very Rich food that merits another return.
For a resto called Mechante boeuf, there's not much of a selection in the way of beef dishes....qhich isn't necessarily a bad thing..and you would expect a large variety of beef burgers, but was surprised at the limited selection..two(2). and it has blue cheese...which I failed to notice, oh well my fault.. but Meh!!Nothing to write home about. And at $19 pretty unimpressed... a lot better and cheaper burgers could be had elsewhere in this great city... just my humble opinion
Oh yeah... and serving a $ 9 tepid beer in a bland non-descript Bock glass... kinda cheap and low class..should be served in a pint glass...
again my humble snobby opinion...let me just say that we weren't wowed... Service was good and friendly though.
Breakfast at Kitchen 73 Overall was good. The food was freah and served in modern decor/ plates and nice cutlery for a change.
The overall experience though had to be one of the most stressful ones I ever had to go through for a breakfast.
First of all .. what's with the entrance?... Patrons need to squeeze around an akwardly placed Panel/Pillar to get to the front section. Placed at a table and which was located in a tight high traffic area... should have asked for another table.. my bad!
... and the the staff / Manager constantly stressing about moving tables around and moving stuff.. got on our nerves..
Chill out people.. smile more!! Very distracting... and when you see the head chef.... or at least looked like the chef come out on 3-4 occasions
looking around for someone, kinda got distracting..you wonder.. maybe he was just bored:-) As for the layout and ambiance.. kinda cold
and too modern, but some like that... but better than the 'Country/ chickeny' look.
Overall.. Food was good and fresh . my beef was just with the overall experience on my first visit.. enjoy!
A very good resto hidden within walking distance from the buisy Ontario/St-Denis Hub. Great refined French Bistro fusion incorporating many little surprises and tastes in their dishes.
Althought the kitchen looks really small, its amazing what comes out of it.
Bring your own wine which is great and fantastic attentive service.
It is alittle crapped though. My only comment was the lighting was abit too bright and could have been toned down abit for more atmosphere. But we were there at 7:00 PM so maybe it gets dimmed later, but it would have been nice
A well established resto in Laval serving classic french food sometimes overlooked within
the ever popular Laval resto scene.
Very good food, with a quaint ambiance in an ancestral home with professional service.
We decided to pay it another visit especially since adopting the trend of offering a selection of wines at SAQ prices.
Unfortunately after ordering were surprised to find our bargain wine was served with white wine glasses.
After noticing the adjacent table drinking out of the requisite red wine glasses, we were told that they are only provided with the premium wine. Hmmm.
We reluctantly accepted, but thinking back at the end of the evening should have demanded the appropriate glasses or left altogether.... Well Maybe next time?? Probably not.
Masculine in Decore, this French Bistro serves up modern french fare along with their take on local/regionalfavorites such as Pâté Chinois au canard confit & Maccaroni & cheese avec petits lardons
Had the Boeuf tartar followed by the Pâté chinois which had a good portion of duck served
in the skillet it was cooked in. Both were excellent. Good effecient service and great buisy
lunch-time ambiance. Reservations are recommended.
