Just got back from Longueuil having spent last evening at a birth day party at the Messina Restaurant on St. Charles St W. The restaurant is located in the old part of Longueuil so parking is an issue which the restaurant solves through Valet parking at no particular cost except tips. The restaurant is spacious with various levels both inside and outside. The staff is courteous and friendly and always willing to help. Most of them are in their early twenties and are well turned out. We arrived late at about 1940 hrs for Dinner with most of our large party already present. That caused no issue and we were promptly seated in very comfortable leather overstuffed chairs. The drink request followed and so did the request for our fare choices. As our crowd was quite large (50) there was a set menu of about six items all of which proved to be very nice. My choice was a veal cutlet with pasta. The cutlet was prepared without excess bread crumbs and was very tasty. My wife had a sea food dish which also was very tasty. My wife and I rarely order the same dish when going out to Dinner but taste each other's dishes during the meal. Service, given the size of the party, was reasonable with the meals all being served at the same time for all. this was followed by desert of a very nice birthday cake and coffee. This restaurant is not a bring your own wine venue but does offer a cash bar at reasonable prices. Dinner was finally over at about 2200 hrs and was followed by the clearing of the floor for some dancing courtesy of our brought along DJ. At no time did we feel rushed and the staff made us feel welcome throughout even though a good portion of our group were children. This was a great experience and we feel strongly that we will go back another time. A job well done.
