Bistro Justine on St Denis- is it at lest as good as Au P'tit Plateau?

We are in Montreal until Monday morning-
After an excellent dinner at APP (which was full for both seatings for today and tomorrow,) and unable to get a reservation for au pied de cochon for Saturday or Sunday, we stopped at Bistro Justine on St Denis at about 8:30 pm . The place was mostly empty and the ease with which we got a reservation for tomorrow night (Saturday night at 8 pm) made me wonder if this place is still a good place to eat or has it gone downhill , or whether we should try theother location.
I must confess we have had had some bad experiences with second locations of good restaurants where the owner is not at the helm and would not want to waste this opportunity to experience good french Bistros in Montreal - I would appreciate any feedback or advice
