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!

Excellent and reasonable wine list, friendly staff, awesome entrées and a good dessert. Don't know what else to say other than I hope we can get back there before we leave!

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

The menu looks amazing unfortunately, this is another case of a restaurant which over charges for small dishes absent of flavour. Very disappointed with the lobster dishes and service is extremely slow with minimal service or care for the patron. Save your money and time, honestly

Delicious meal in a most charming setting. Great wine and intelligent, gracious service. Found on the recommendation of Ritz and was very impressed by the experience. Menu was thoughtful and food was well executed, not fussy but pure flavors, well-composed plates. Set the standard for the rest of our Montreal visit.

I'm not really sure what the other reviewers had experienced, but my wife, two children, ages 18 and 16 and I had an extremely memorable meal here. Right from the start, the starters were absolutely delicious; we had the burrata, the cheese selection and the peppers stuffed with goat cheese. All were absolutely fantastic and a great way to start... More

We stumbled across this very inviting little restaurant and were not disappointed. The service was great and the food delicious. The menu is quite small which to me is a good sign as everything is freshly prepared. All dishes sounded interesting and unusual. All three of us enjoyed the meal immensely. Highly recommended!
