This is a quaint restaurant in downtown Montreal. The waitstaff are extremely friendly and service was outstanding. My husband had the veal and I had Lobster Carbonara! Both were outstanding dishes and had a very nice presentation! We didn't get dessert as we were too full. I highly recommend you make a reservation as they book up quickly!

This is a great restaurant in old Montreal with a menu that provides choices for everyone. The dishes were extremely well balanced and tasteful, the seafood risotto was amazing!! The tiramisu is a must and I thought the service was really good. Would highly recommend if you're in Old Montreal. I thought the prices were ok, wouldn't expect anything less... More

Friendly service, delicious modern French dishes and lovely wines. We wanted to try several wines so we bought by the glass. This was certainly not cost effective....quite pricey, still we did enjoy every drop! Delightful ambience and service.

If you are looking for a cute, romantic place with great food in Old Montreal, don't look any further. Awesome place in Old Montreal on Saint-Paul Ouest. Really great wine selection (depute it being a short list) with knowledgeable bar staff. We chose to eat at the bar but the entire place is cosy with exposed brick walls and authentic... More

Went for a glass of wine and an appetizer first, but came back for a full dinner. Cozy, romantic spot in the heart of Montreal.

During our four night visit to Montreal we ate at Bocata twice and were not disappointed. From the oysters to the Tiramisu only the best was presented on the plate. The staff were warm, unpretentious and extremely passionate and knowledgable about both the food and wine on offer. The meal highlight without hesitation was the Tiramisu....amazing!

Bocata is a small restaurant with a reasonable selection of French foods. I had to leave a message to get a reservation, but received a call back very quickly. Everything was very good, just not quite to die for, and the wine, which was recommended by the sommelier, who made a bit too much fuss about decanting it, wasn't as... More

My husband and I were roaming the streets seeking a place to eat on our first night. We stumbled upon Bocata... it was crowed, and typically you need reservations, but there was room for us at the bar, which ended up being an amazing seat. Our hostess/server, Andi, made our evening so enjoyable. The food and wine were some the... More
