Years ago my parents drove from Montreal in the days of the original owner to eat here for so great was the food. Well that era is gone. Food and service is terrible! !! My parents were so embarrassed to have brought me there for my b'day. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!

When you go in, it smells like an old restaurant, when you sit at the table you get the feeling this place needs a re-modelling phase, the food tasted good but not for the price, and the service was poor when (everything came late: bread basket, garlic butter and side dish veggies...) The wine was served poorly, the waitress dropped some wine on the table for every glass...Oh well...Been there, done that!

We were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary and decided to go to Chez Plumet at Granby, about 45minutes east of Montreal. I had passed the restaurant often during my travels, and checking out their website, imagined it to be just the place for a nice dinner.First, it must be said that this was a Saturday in December, so the restaurant was full and it was at the height of the office party season. However, management was aware of this and should have staffed accordingly.
We arrived at the restaurant on time only to be left standing in the doorway for about 10 minutes as the wait staff worked frantically. When we were welcomed, the cloak facilities were very rudimentary. We were lead through a very busy dining room to our table. I thought that the facilities were below par for this kind of restaurant. Seating and table decoration were just acceptable for this kind of restaurant. Cutlery and glassware were not. The glassware was of the cheapest machine made glass with the mould ribs clearly apparent on the stems. It really robs one of the pleasure of drinking good wine. Ikea. glasses are of much better quality. The dining area is quite large, probably about 100 to 150 in our room, so with no partitions and uncomfortably close seating, the room is very loud.
When we were seated we were expected to order straight away, we asked for a few extra minutes to look at the menu, and the waitress re-emerged half an hour later after wild gesticulations on our part. We started our appetizer 1 hour after entering the restaurant.
As for the food, it was quite good. Much was original but a tad lacking in refinement. We took the table d'hôte wich offered a very satisfactory choice of dishes. For the appetiser, we shared a pâté. de maison, attractively presented with an onion jam and greens. When we told the waitress we wanted to share she offered a plate with similar garnish without extra charge. The soups were vegetable, sweetish because of the emphasis on root vegetables, and a potage gaspésien, which is a thickish fish soup with fish and seafood.The vegetable soup was servicable, and the potage was very well done, not too fishy, nice consistency and with chunks of fish, mussel,shrimp and I think a piece of lobster.
Our mains were Poulet Cordon Bleu and Coquilles St Jacques, two standards of French cuisine. The meats were well prepared. The chicken golden and attractive, the coquilles with 8 to 10 moderate sized scallops in a nicely prepared sauce. The accompaniments were very disappointing: mashed potatoes for the chicken and plain white rice for the coquilles. Also served were portions of plain steamed vegetables (carrots, broccoli, etc), which I thought was inappropriate for such a meal. A final comment on the cuisine, I thought the chef used salt very well as none of the dishes were oversalted.
The wine list was mainly French with a smattering from other countries. It was certainly adequate, but I thought a trifle uninspiring. I selected L'oratoire de la Brune (2003), a Côtes du Rhône, at $41 which I thought was a very good value. It was also a wine that went well with our dinners.
We had a good choice of desserts. They were on a trolley, buit instead of bringing the trolley to the table we were offered a litany to choose from. We chose a cheesecake and a Paris Brest. The Paris brest was piped onto a nice crisp choux pastry éclair, the cheesecake good but without distinction. The waitress prepared tea in a generous pot in the traditional manner.
You can see from the above that the evening was quite eventful, full of surprises and disappointments. The serving staff kept their good humour through what must have been a very difficult night. There was an entertainer who sang and played a selection of numbers, to which the guests(diners) danced as the evening progressed. It is not easy to find a dinner-dance restaurant these days so this is certainly a good reason to patronize this restaurant if you like the dinner-dance format.
Much could be done to improve the intimacy and comfort of the guests for very little investment, however if the restaurant wants to attract and keep new clients it is essential that the toilet facilities be upgraded. At present they are completely inadequate for a restaurant of this size and the condition of the toilet facilities is not in keeping with the quality that the restaurant wishes to project.
We were never presented with a bill for our meal but told to go to the front desk. Again it was chaotic and after some discussion we agreed on the invoice, retrieved our coats from the wardrobe and headed home.
