Useful information


Truth be told, Convivial excels in all areas. It scores major points for its location in the hip Shaw neighborhood; ranks high on style with its clean, rustic-modern aesthetic; and boasts warm, compelling service. Of course, the real reason diners keep coming back to this energetic spot is most certainly for the food: bold and playful takes on the tried-and-true that are made for sharing. Is there a secret to the popular Franco-Gallic-American menu? If anyone knows, it is Chef/owner Cedric Maupillier and his passionate team. Tuck in to a savory classic—perhaps gnocchi à la parisienne aux légumes printaniers—but save room for sweet treats like a spot-on soufflé, Île flottante or galette des rois.
