I would give them 3 and a half rather than 3 points if I could, but four is stretching it.. When we are looking for a decent but unpretentious meal, near our regular hotel, and don't want to do fancy, we often come to the Renaissance.
As prior reviewers have said, they know how to do many of the traditional brasserie dishes; and they have a fairly busy oyster shucker outside during the evenings. Stick to simple dishes and you won't be disappointed.
The one or two servers can get overwhelmed when they get busy, but they will get around to you. The food is well, but not brilliantly prepared. With plenty of apartments, condos, professional practices on or near Victor Hugo, they get a sufficiently large percentage of locals which can be reassuring on the quality. There are plenty of hotels in the area too, so tourists are also part of the mix.
There are far better restaurants nearby, but at a higher price point. This place serves the purpose of a respectable brasserie: simple, capably prepared food that won't create lasting memories, either good or bad. It is a fair transaction: decent quality at a reasonable price. The restaurant atmosphere is rather generic.
