Respond to Review of CLOSED: Commensal - McGill College

Review: We visited montreal recently for 1 week, and we had almost all of our meals at this restaurant!! Why? Because the food and atmosphere was that excellent! There was a huge buffet of cold, hot, salad, and dessert dishes. Each dish was marked with a name & ingredients. They even had a logo/symbol system to indicate the vegan menu items, which was very helpful. Altogether, about 40 items to choose from!! Most of the main meal & salad area were vegan; the dessert area had 3 vegan options. The cost was dependent on weight of plate. Our meals (which were piled very high with food!) cost between $9-15 only!! Water with your meal was free, otherwise you could buy drinks separately. It was superbly clean, and huge (which was good, because it filled to capacity during lunch time!). It opened at 11.30am, and closed at 10pm. We stayed at Hotel Le Crystal which was super plush, and only 7 minutes walk from the restaurant, which came in very handy. As i said, we had the majority of our meals (all except 2), and we didn't get tired of it, as there were always different things to try on the buffet. Because it was a buffet, it was super-fast service, and the windows seats were great to watch the world go by. All in all, an amazing restaurant for veggies and non-veggie people due to super yummy, hearty & healthy food. If i ever go back to montreal, i'd eat all my meals there again!
