Four star French classic restaurant located in Old Montreal.
Wonderful experience, start to finish. Our server was attentive and professional. My wife and I had the onion soup which was not the crock of overly salted broth dripping with cheese that you get in the US. This was a wonderful onion soup topped with a large slice of cheesy french bread, served piping hot. My wife had the scallops and I had the grilled sole meuniere. Both dishes were delicious served with root vegetables on heated plates. They were skillfully cooked and artfully presented. Desserts were also delicious. I had the blueberry cheese cake and my wife had the chocolate mousse. Both were prepared with the right balance of flavors with sugar not overpowering the desserts. Overall, a terrific experience.

Located on Saint-Denis Street in front of the beautiful Square Saint-Louis, the Restaurant de lâITHQ has an elegant indoor space and a delightful outdoor terrace. In the kitchen, Chef Jonathan Lapierre-RÃ©hayem prepares modern and refined seasonal menus th
We chose this place, based on the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Another review explained that the staff are students. At the time of our visit, âschoolâ had finished and the staff were all employees, although many (if not all) had been students, under the previous regime. And they all came across as thoroughly professional.Opted for the 5 course tasting menu, but without the wine matches. However, our waitress (Valerie) had no hesitation in suggesting a couple of by-the-glass options. Started with a chicken liver pÃ¢tÃ© amuse bouche, which was very good and, of course, very rich. Then asparagus and courgette flower tempura, followed by something that escapes me, both courses being ably complemented by a decent rosÃ©.The first main course was lobster gnocchi with seafood crisps, followed by guinea fowl, with roasted mushrooms, which we washed down with a Chiroubles Gamay. Two fabulous desserts (my wife is lactose intolerant, so was offered an alternative) rounded off a pretty damned fine dinner. The final bill as $190, so I canât quite agree with the review which says âfine dining, but not at fine dining pricesâ. However, we both enjoyed the dinner, which was conducted at a very civilised pace.

Chez Chose offers a menu from a blackboard.This menu varies depending on the season and the products from our providers, each and every one of them Quebec's very own craftsmen. It also varies following the fantasies of our chef Marie-France Desrosiers who
We discovered this restaurant a little by chance and chance does things well! We loved it: the charming welcome, the dÃ©cor, the quality of the dishes, everything was impeccable. We do not drink alcohol and the owner offered us his kombucha which was delicious! My spouse had the lobster roll as a starter (wow) and I had the beet salad that was served with seasoned bocconcini, a delight! The boucanÃ© chicken is perfectly cooked and the French fries are the best I had eaten for a long time. The blood sausage was very good, although I prefer the Petit Flore on Fleury, which is spicier. The desserts are simply sublime! The iced nougat and chocolate and hazelnut dessert were refined and the balance of flavours was perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant and we'll probably go back soon enough, if only to get some take-out chicken!

The tasting menu is offered in a choice of three, five or seven courses where preference is given to vegetables, as well as a selection of meat and seafood. Our aim is to create a meal that reflects a balance of flavours and draws on the styles and inspir
Despite being a bit out of the way - we were in Montreal for the Jazz Fest and had to take an Uber here - this quickly became one of our favorite Montreal restaurants. We had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings, which were well-selected and very generously poured. Next time we'll have the 7 course tasting menu - everything we had was scrumptious. We're pescatarians (no meat or fowl), which wasn't a problem for them. In fact, a strict vegetarian would equally have a wonderful meal here. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The desert was unique and perfect. We loved this place. Pretty room, wonderful waiter and the food was incredible. I had the to-die-for piglet risotto with foie gras and the rack of lamb entrÃ©e - seriously the best food ever. My fr loved his food as well. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Polish cuisine done to perfection in a great atmosphere. Chip away at basic Polish dishes or dare to try more interesting options.
Our first dinner in Montreal was at Stash CafÃ©, a Polish restaurant! I found Stash CafÃ© on TripAdvisor before our trip and we just had to try it. We stayed at the Hotel Bonaparte and the concierge got us reservations at 8 PM. Stash is only half a block from the hotel.We ordered a starter of four Pierogis; my wife had the Sznycel Mielony; I had the Krokiety; and we had a 500ml carafe if wine. Everything was outstanding, and what a great value! The total dinner, including wine, was only $71 CAD before the tip! (Thatâs only $54 US.) Stash CafÃ© is a great restaurant and a Must Try!P.S. The atmosphere is very quaint, with church pews at most of the tables. Service was terrific. When we arrived, the waitress asked us if we wanted to speak âEnglish, French or POLISHâ!

It is important to know that the co-owners are from Morocco and from Scotland. Tapas have been completely "reinterpreted" with a touch of Scotland there, and a touch of Morocco there... Portions are generous. Service is really courteous and friendly. I was there with 2 friends and we have all been stunned by this restaurant. It was way above expectations.

A restaurant in the eclectic cuisine, freely inspired by flavors and textures here and elsewhere. A mirror of Quebec, his memory and his mind open to the world and looking towards the future, and all that gives it a unique color
My wife and I chose the tasting menu. We went through 5 courses, each more interesting than the last. The service was quick, polite and friendly. The atmosphere was thoroughly enjoyable, with a terrasse giving on to the Plateau's trendy St-Denis street.

We came into Montreal for the PokÃ©mon Go safari zone event. We knew we needed a splurge meal in a fancy restaurant.The bistro was fancy, but the staff make it feel homey and friendly and try ways to connect. Fluent in English and french (although we tried to read it at least).The 5 course + taster menu was fantastic. All 6 appetisers were fantastic, and the bison main and lamb main were lovely.Our favourite app was the salmon at 41 degrees Celsius. Iâd eat more of that right now (and Iâm plenty full from the meal).Definitely recommend. Do make a reservation as they arenât a large restaurant and were packed the whole night.

You would never guess how sophisticated is the food offered by this restaurant from outside. This was by far our best meal in Canada. Their tasting menu is sublime. We had problems with the service provided by the hotel where we stayed in Montreal and such bad experiences may give you the wrong impression about the city as a whole. So having had the wonderful service this restaurant's staff provided to us was a bliss and Montreal's redemption in our eyes. Muito obrigada!Thankyou very much for your comment ! we are happy to have offered you a beautiful evening! Do not hesitate to come back to see us
