You can see from my multiple reviews that I rarely blast a restaurant completely. But this is a tourist trap, using its location to attract people coming to a theater evening and then rip them off completely.
I do not mind excessive pricing when there is some quality or innovation attached to it, and often tapas offer that type of experience. But here, they charge as if you were at Le Filets but you get quality of food that is actually below food courts. It will cost you roughly 60 dollars per guess just for the food easy, if you take the average suggested 3 tapas...we even had to add a portion of sweet potato fries (for 10 dollars more) at the end of the meal so we felt to have eaten something.
So the food. The salmon tartar served that night was tasteless...almost as we clearly could taste the fridge as this fish was left too long uncovered in the fridge or something...very happy not to have been sick. Another fish tapas of maquereau was completely disgusting, served on a tasteless and hard as rock polenta contaminated by the fish taste that was not that fresh. The stuffed calamari and the scallops were very average but at least fresh, but served with a crouton that could have been used as a baseball bat as much as it was hard. Tasteless and small portions...really, 19 dollars for 3 miniature scallops that really had nothing special except not being a total flop like the rest??? And the list goes on. The chicken could have been purchased at the local supermarket (probably was actually) and served just like that, without any work done to add any taste, no spices, no gravy of any sort, nothing. Like if the poor thing was purchased by a student low on cash.
Talking of cash, be aware that the wine pricing goes accordingly, 3 times the SAQ price, something that you only see (and not that often) in rip-off place where you go to be seen. And the waiter will tell you they are out of the specific wine by the glass you asked but will gladly find a bottle if you want to buy one! Interesting. And forget about getting any wine advice. They are either not interested or do not have a clue.
Service was also cold, and the restaurant was freezing inside (ok, it was -20 outside but people eating with their winter coat on?). The so called lava cake was burned and the ice cream was a so mini format that it looked like a kid dessert in a cheap fast food that is included with a kid meal.
When I got the bill, I was not laughing I can assure you. Even if the whole meal looked like a comedy show.
