Buonanotte - Montreal

Buonanotte is the place for those wishing to experience the charm, style, flair and grace the city has to offer on its most vibrant and cosmopolitan boulevard. Located in proximity to the premier galleries, museums, boutiques
and hotels, Buonanotte satisfies every visitor's senses and cravings since 1991.
"1- Valet Parking: Either do it right or don't do it!!!
Called beforehand to make sure there was valet parking. So there was.. We came with my girlfriend all dressed up just to see the knee deep snow on the edge of sidewalk (couldn't park close and open the door) and ankle-deep slushy water right up to the middle of the parking lane (couldn't jump either - like as if we had to!!). AND the (@#**) valet told us just to jump over the water and somehow climb over the pile of snow just to get to the door. I thought he was joking.. nope he did not. He somehow had mental issues for sure.
FORGET VALET PARKING!! DONT DO IT!! DONT SAY YOU HAVE IT. NO USE AT ALL!
The funny thing; the next day while walking along St Laurent, the snow was cleaned up - but of course by the municipal contractors - with NO COST to Buonanotte!. Now that's the reason we had to snow-hike!
Get someone, pay him a $100 for God's sake, and don't mess up anyone else's night again.
2- There was a (presumably) "VIP" table where all the buzz was going on. The person which we guessed to be the manager, along with half a dozen waiters/waitresses were flapping around the table like fairies wearing their broadest smiles. Perfect hospitality, I would say. Only if it was equally distributed.
In that situ, we had to wait (exactly) 15 mins just to be informed the wine we selected was not available. That's normal, it may not be. But the "waiting" is not! Esp. when you witness the fast-track service to another table.
3- DJ was OK, nice tunes from the past decades. BUT the music was too loud for supper. We expected the lounge/club ambiance but definitely after eating. We had to communicate literally by shouting at each other (which didn't ease the tension we had due to the ingenious valet).
4- We left after our appetizers and a glass of white wine each! Miserable evening for us, only to be complemented by our man! (The Valet!) while leaving! Once more we had to "Swim/Jump" to the car."
