The place to be seen if you are 20-30 something. I was there with my 25 year old daughter. Tried several wines...excellent. We chose the charcuterie board for $49...OMG what a treat. Meats, cheese, spreads, nuts, etc. It was a meal.

We had a drink here with a group of about 20 colleagues. We ordered a combination plate with a lot of choices. The drinks were also quite good!

There was a lot of activity here, the crowd was 30+ and the drinks flowed nicely. The seating was a bit limited and so was the standing room. It's a nice place on a club crawl in Old Montreal.
