DNA, when to go?

Artichoq Mar 11, 2011 06:23 AM

My wife and I enjoyed the food, but not the ambience. We were one of only three tables; the other two were seniors! (No offense, old folks, just not the mood we were looking for.) Admittedly it was "early" on a Saturday (7 pm), but we were hoping for a bit more buzz. I'd like to go back, but not if I am the youngest person in the place by several decades. Is it more lively on weekdays? Or after a certain hour?

      If you go on a weekday btwn 5 and 8pm, bottles of wine are 50% off. I went last summer before attending a Cirque du Soleil show - it was great. The ambiance was not superclub or old folks' home, but it wasn't empty either. Amuse-gueules were also offered, complimentary.

          In the Lounge section of the website: "Between 5 and 7 pm bottles of Canadian wine are half price."

            Thanks Bob,

            Does that mean it is applicable only in the lounge section?

              No, unless it's changed, it's applicablein the dining area as well. It's just that many working professionals find the promotion interesting to have post office drinks.

                sweettoothMTL got it right. You can order your wine anywhere. And in between 5 and 7 it's half price. Although I will refrain from making any comments about people who choose to eat dinner at 5 o'clock in the afternoon...

                Personally I try to make it there for 6:55 PM.

                    We were 3 last time, and wanted to order 2 bottles of red. The waitress said we can only order one bottle at a time. It might have been different if one person in our group wanted a white instead.
