Respond to Review of Crudessence - Rachel
Review: Last week my husband & I tried Crudessence while visiting Montreal. It was a good 1st raw foods experience. Our meals had a surprising amount of flavor, especially considering how healthy raw foods are. The restaurant is fairly small inside, but they have a cute outdoor area for pleasant weather, as well as a couple of tables on either side of the entrance, which is where we sat. The neighborhood had a decent amount of foot traffic, so we enjoyed people & dog watching. The servers were very friendly, & fast to begin with. Our orders were quickly taken & the food brought to our table in good time, but once we had our main courses the server was nowhere to be found. Apparently at this restaurant you are expected to go up to the counter once you have finished eating. Of the 5 or so places we ate in Montreal, this was the only one that settles up this way. My husband was going to have desert, but after we sat for about 25-30 min. following our meal we just felt like leaving. We weren't in a particular hurry, but it would have been nice if they had told us how to properly obtain our check. It didn't ruin our time overall, just want to save other patrons any unnecessary delay :) Also, sorry if this is too forward, but make sure you have private restroom time the next morning. You don't want to be stuck out & about when the time comes. This food is very healthy & "cleansing" I'll say. A good meal experience overall. Not something we would eat too often if we lived there, but a welcome change in vegan/vegetarian dining.
