Montreal, c’est si bon! This French-speaking city is considered the cultural capital of Canada, and is a cosmopolitan celebration of Québécois style. A horse-drawn carriage ride around the cobblestone streets and grand buildings of Vieux-Montréal will give you a taste of European flavor. The Basilique Notre-Dame is a confection of stained glass, and the Plateau Mont-Royal district will delight you with its quaint boutiques and cafés. Dig in to a massive plate of poutine to fuel up for a tour of the epic Olympic Park.

Restaurant Europea has become an essential spot on Montreal scene, a gastronomic "rendez-vous" rich in colour and flavour. Flattered by all the gourmet critics, you will share an outstanding experience offered by the creative and modern cuisine of Chef Jerome ferrer and his 22 chefs team. (named chef of the year, restaurant of the year, "maitre cuisinier de France" An unforgetable moment in a charming Victorian mansion in the heart of downtown Montreal ...When the cuisine becomes an art!
We went as a family, 2 adults and 2 kids for the Hommage à Paul Bocuse 69.50$ tasting menu, kids eat free. The menu for adults felt stale. I thought the tasting menu would be inspired by Bocuse, not the actual identical recipes. Everything was rich french fare, very classic, nothing reinvented. I mean, the quenelle was just that, the fricassé as well. We did not feel surprised, felt like the meal was geared to a MUCH older crowd, almost geriatric in its choices (very soft food, no change of textures) and sadly lacking in vegetables. Kids meals were ok, same exact mushroom risotto as last year, with a different soup. Even the desserts were almost identical and were more quantity than quality. I get the cotton candy is a wow factor visually, but it tastes the same as the regular pink cotton candy we buy in fairs. Why not do something unexpected with this? Have fun and experiment? All in all, we were sad to see how outdated the restaurant and the food have become. We wont be going back.

Located in the heart of the Plateau for 25 years, Le Pégase is renowned for its fine French cuisine and a selection of meats cooked to perfection. You can bring your own wine, so ... be your own sommelier and select your favorite bottles!The decor and atmosphere are welcoming and friendly. A romantic evening between lovers or a convivial moment for friends conjugate there perfectly.--In the kitchenThe owner-chef Michael Audet-Laparé is illustrated in many restaurants (Chez Victoire, Le Quartier General, Laurie-Raphaël, Grenadine) before investing in command of Le Pégase. Assisted by Jean-Luc Peyrotes, he applies, every day, to work fine seasonal ingredients on the well-kept cooking and to express his taste for the culinary innovation and the marriages of flavors. In the dining-roomDamien Haennel, associated owner, orchestrates the service and its rhythm with a lightness tinged with twenty years of experience in catering. A good mood and a professionalism which favors the friendly reception of our duet of waiters, Johann and Morgane.
Decided to start our holiday with dinner here, and we went for the four course set. We had:
Goat's cheese profiteroles
Braised lamb ravioli
Rack of lamb
Apple cake (tarte tatin)
The standouts were the profiteroles, which were served with beet mousse and sauce (normally, we're not into beets, but they provided a sunny and sweet flavor in this dish),
the bison steak, with an array of vegetables, the rack of lamb, which is an impressively generous portion, and the desserts. Also amazing was the fact that it was under $70 per person for meals of high quality. In Washington, DC, this meal would have easily been double the price.
It should also be noted that the servers were lovely. A sweet restaurant in an unassuming location. Highly recommended for a leisurely meal. Thank you, Montréal!

Four star French classic restaurant located in Old Montreal.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Bonaparte. The service, cocktails, wine, appetizers and meal (Scallop delight with truffle oil and mushroom fricassee) were all quite excellent. We initially were uncertain about ordering the Lobster salad with hazelnut oil and maple syrup dressing (maple syrup in dressing?) but our waiter assured us it was not sweet -- and he was right. We ordered off the ala carte menu but there is also a tasting menu and a table d’hôte that changes daily.

I have been fortune enough to have eaten at Chasse et Peche several times over the years. I have always been blown away by my experiences, touting it as one of Montreal's finest restaurants. I send people there, telling them that not only is the food spectacular but that the service is second to none. So, when a friend invited me for my birthday, needless to say that I was ecstatic. And then so, so disappointed. Upon arrival, it took a long time to get our coats checked and ourselves seated. No idea why. The hostess seated us with a wine list, and then no one came back. After a good 10 mins, if not longer, I had to stop a waiter, who said he wasn't our waiter, just to ask for water and order cocktails. "Our" waiter eventually came back with the cocktails, set them down, and was about to walk away. I had to stop him to ask for menus. Another long stretch of time went by before a third waiter came to take our orders. I asked if there were any specials, as no one had bothered to tell us yet at that point. He described them to us, we ordered, and that was about it. Service gets 1 star. The food was fantastic, though. The scallops, risotto, lobster, etc, all excellent. However, when I go to this caliber of restaurant, it's about more than the food. It is an experience, and the service plays a big role in that. I won't be rushing to go back.

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 inspirations of our kitchen. Please inform us of any dietary restrictions you may have.
The setting was beautiful and romantic. The service friendly and attentive. Every dish was a work of art....looking fabulous. But to be honest, of the 5 courses two were over the top delicious and the other courses were beautiful looking but not as tasty. The dish of the night was the mushroom appetizer...and the main. Dessert really disappointed...I just didn't like the taste! The 2 good dishes really inspired....but we were disappointed with the others....though they looked beautiful!

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at Bouillon Bilk. The before dinner drinks were great, first course was spectacular, and the scallops were perfect. We also had the truffle linguini which was rich and hearty. We would definitely return when in Montreal. We really liked the design of the restaurant as well with the bar area in the middle of the space.

Tuck Shop provides a casual and comfortable atmosphere for dining. Our waitress was excellent and was engaging and enthusiastic. The food is professional in ingredients and presentation with so many pieces to each very tasty puzzle. Portions are very good and cost is not over the top. Tuck shop is very enjoyable.

Arrived at Le Filet last evening expecting a delicious meal knowing this spot was related to one of our favorites, Club Chasse et Pêche - was not disappointed! Service by each member of the team attending to our area was charming, helpful and prompt. Menu choices, although not numerous, were varied and appealing, so difficult to make a choice. The three of us enjoyed ours immensley. The only criticism we had was the noise level and constant thumping of electronic music, which is a downer when you want to have a conversation over dinner but have to shout over voices and drumming sounds. We got over it but wished it was a bit calmer. We’ll definitely be back to try other menu items - surprised ourselves with their onion rings - so unexpected, but yummy!

Food selection, quality and preparation are excellent, BYOW makes dining much more affordable. Service was great and not overbearing. Very comfortable Seating.
It’s on île bizzare, and réservations are required and since they are so popular might take a while to get. Is it worth the travel and wait to book a time? Absolutely

Damas, an upscale Syrian restaurant located on Avenue Van Horne. You will be charmed by the Oriental decor and most impressed by their refined and rich cuisine. This modern but authentic gastronomy will make your mouth water with all their specialties starting from the fattouche, the appetizing mouth-melting lamb leg to the cherry kebab. The blend of aromas and the tasting of the delicious preparations will make the experience worthwhile.
Wonderful food with knowledgeable wait staff. Tasting menu an adventure but lots of food. All dishes are plentiful and flavourful. Occupancy salad excellent and lamb kebob(diced not chunks) very good. Cannot go wrong with any choice. Ask waiter for help.
Good wine selection. Martinis well made.
A dinner treat!
