If you want to impress someone by bringing them to a small nondescript hole in the wall and throwing money around like it is no concern, this would be a great place to go. The food is all right but honestly, the $22 Snowcrab kimchee (3 tiny mounds on a crusty rice cracker) is over priced and underwhelming in texture, flavor and presentation. One could exactingly replicate the culinary sensation by putting wasabi on crunchy Japanese cucumbers and throwing in a tasteless crouton to boot. Nothing to write home about, but neither are the too-sweet candy-assed cocktails or the bland chunk of undercooked halibut on woody asparagus ($35). In all, it was a very modest meal for two, (two mains, one shared appetizer, a couple of cocktails) for $175 spent staring at a wall, crammed in next to people who had obviously fallen into the same restaurant review trap we had (same conversation - everyone's ordering the same snow crab kimchee - no one is overly fussed by the experience) or the hip crowd trying to act cool by throwing mine away on mediocre dishes while sitting with their friends watching stupid Rodney Dangerfield videos the ir iPhones the whole time. Like a bratty school cafeteria crowd with too much money, not able to discern good taste for themselves but just following the internet food critic crowd that is easily seduced by the owner's television appearances and attracted to the prospect of being part of the hip cool crowd.
Ok food, nice service, over priced, lame crowd. Giving this a miss on the next visit to Montreal.
