Montréal Eats: Le Boeuf Gourmand

We had a groupon but still felt very ripped off after the meal.  Service was horrible.  Everything was very slow and there was only one waitress (well there was a younger waitress towards the end of the meal but she was only allowed to refill water and couldn’t take any orders :shock: ).  We actually witnessed two tables leaving in rage after a very long period of waiting.  Food was extremely overprice and the quality wasn’t any better than buying a good quality steak from a butcher store.

My ratings:
Price range: $$-$$$$

La salade cabri (Cabri salad)
5 toasts de baguette, frottés à l ail garni de fromage de chêvre gratiné, le tout servi sur une chiffonade de salade verte, de rondelles de tomates, relevée d’une vinaigrette balsamique
(5 slices of toasted baguette bread, rubbed with garlic, topped with goat cheese served on a bed of green salad garnished with tomato rings and shelled walnuts, enhanced with balsamic vinegar)
Burnt toast and the portion was very small (considering the price was around $13)L’assiétte océane (Ocean dish)
Un savoureuz mélange de crevettes grillées, flambées sur lit de salade agrémenté d’une sauce coktail
(a savoury blend of grilled shimp flambé on a bed of salad and tomatoes served with cocktail sauce
Shrimp was very tiny, and the potion size was very small (considering the price was around $14)
Le Tartare de boeuf-Un régal pour les amateurs de viandes crues!
250grs sélectionnés dans un contre filet AAA.  Haché à la commande, servi avec tous ses condiments vous laisserez aller vos humeurs en confectionnant vous-même votre tartare au gré de votre palais servi avec une salade et des pommes de terre frite maison à volonté.
(A delight for raw meat lovers! 7oz chosen from sirloin.  Chopped when ordered, served with all of its condiments.)
L’Entrecôte frites
300grs de pièce de boeuf dans le contre filet, cuit sur la braise: un vrai délice!
(10.6oz of beef ribs from sirloin, braised: a real delight!  Served with fresh homemade french fries.)
Les Accompagenements:
La sauce aux 4 poivres (4 peppers sauce)
mitonnée aux petits oignons dans un fond brun
Didn’t expect a lot for 10oz but it was really very thin and the quality wasn’t that special.
La Crème Brûlée la vraie!
Crème aromatisée au cointreau, caramélisée
Not very well made, seemed overcooked
Les Profiterolles
choux pâtissier fourré de glace à la vanille, nappé d’un chocolat chaud et d’amandes grillées
Very hard and stale, not quite what I expect for a profiterole

    I went there since I had a groupon, if I had not had one I would have left no even 5 min after I arrived. This a place to avoid. Thanks for reviewing it, I wish I could have seen it before going there.
