Local restaurant with a short but good menu. We ate the Flat Iron Steak, Shepard's Pie and Veal Flank; each meal were composed carefully with layers of flavors, all were above average to exceptional. Should we ever return to Sherbrook, we would eat there again.

There isn't much to say about Antidote FoodLab that hasn't already been said. The service was fantastic, the atmosphere was fantastic, and the food was fantastic as well. I was concerned that the food would be too gimicky, but this was not the case. Everything was put on the plate for a reason, and the chefs clearly understand taste and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and no regrets. Starters, main courses and desserts were all fantastic to look at. And more importantly, delicious as well. Each dish is a combination of different flavors, some known, some more exotic. We have hugely enjoyed this restaurant. And all this for a very reasonable price.

One of not many restaurants I've visited that I can truly tell that every ingredient of your meat was taken care of and can be tasted separately or all together. Excellent taste experience, good service, nice place, interesting food ideas and looks.

Looking for good and fun place to eat....here you go. Nice decor, friendly and knowledgable service. Inspired menu and great tasting food. One expects places like this in the bigger cities so finding this gem in Sherbrooke was a most pleasant surprise.

We were in Sherbrooke for a baseball tournament. My husband and I took a break from the games to go to dinner. The service was excellent. Not being fluent in French has been a bit of a barrier since we arrived but not at dinner. The meal was presented wonderfully and was delicious. The restaurant itself is beautiful in a... More

We had dinner here in July, 2016 expecting a special experience and were sorely disappointed. Their technique used to prepare a steak resulted in a tough piece of very expensive beef that tasted like calves liver! The cheese 'fondue' (not a fondue, by the way, which was accurately explained by the server) was nothing more than a fried cheese stick... More
