We enjoyed the lamb and duck which came with a soup or salad. All of those items were excellent. We also enjoyed the scallops. The cheesecake dessert in a jar was pretty good. We thought the prices for the quality were very reasonable and we loved bringing our own wine without any corkage fee. Service here was the best we... More

I love Quartier Géneral, the place is hidden on a small street, they have only a few seatings with a fireplace, it's nice and cosy, the staff is awesome and smart to remember everything they have to tell you for each dish, it's really impressive. The food match everybody expectations at the table and a huge plus for the bring... More

I've been there a couple times and never been disappointed! Service is excellent, food is tasteful and the price...! Add 12$ to the price of the main course and you get soup or salad, appetizer, main course and dessert. WOW! For a little extra, I definitely recommend the Foie Gras! Served with a donut and caramelized peaches, this is heaven... More

We went to Quartier General last night (Saturday) for the first time and we were very impressed by the food, the service and the ambiance. They are saying this restaurant is a bistro style restaurant but for me, the food served in this restaurant is a few notches over this. We were a party of 5 and "everybody" was impressed... More

Restaurant specialties are wild meat. Duck, rabbit, deer, ... Ambiance is OK, but feel too close to neighbor tables. Decor is so-so. Service was pretty good, and waitress explained in great detail the various items on the menu. However, the deception was the food itself. Deer appetizer tasted nothing, veal main dish was hard and tough to chew. Rabbit was... More

I went for lunch with friends and we were all very impressed. As an appetizer I had the beef tartar which was one of the best I've ever had, then the macreuse braisée which was equally as great and beautifully presented. For prix fixe $20 and BYOW you can't go wrong, I can't wait to go back for dinner!

I can't say enough good things about this gem of a restaurant. I arrived late in Montreal, bottle of wine in hand, and my friend had managed to get us a last minute reservation here on a Sunday night. We were seated and greeted by a lovely, smart server who took us through the menu (also written on a long... More

The menu is based from locally sourced products and for a very reasonable price, you can pick the 4 servings choice. If you read others' comments on QG, they will mention the additional $ 12 on your main dish which is worth every penny when you consider that for $ 12 , you have a choice of soup or salad,... More
