Wilson restaurant in Old Montreal

BLM Jun 16, 2007 08:09 AM

Just heard about the Wilson restaurant located in Old Montreal. Just opened around 2 weeks ago, specializing grilled meats & seafood? Anyone dined there yet(at the former Soto Old Montreal location at 500 McGill)? Interested to hear comments on them.

    Wow, Lesley Chesterman reviewed the Wilson restaurant today's Gazette, & almost has nothing good to say about it. Maybe her harshest review she has ever given. Lesley still gave it one star(she has a personal policy of never giving a restaurant no stars, although she has made one exception). No doubt the food she tasted at Wilson was awful, but I still don't like all the Montreal critics in town, basing their reviews on only one visit.

          Ooh, that's harsh. The review, I mean, not the comment about the gazoo.

              She still gave it one star, which going by the Gazette ratings is 'Fair,' That absolutely doesn't make sense, unless the readers know Lesley never gives restaurants less than one star no matter how bad(making one exception). To my knowledge she has never told her Gazette readers of her own policy.

                Stars, schmars. What really matters is that we now know she's no Paris Hilton.
