The menu is very interesting in terms of ingredients choice and the plates are very well executed. The overall experience and taste of all dishes were great. I think this is a good restaurant, but to be worth its price tag (particularly in the odd neighbourhood it is in), it should: -improve attention of staff to details (e.g., we ran... More

I did not know what to expect after I made a reservation. From outside, the place does not look great but it was a total different experience after we opened the door. We were warmly greeted by a smiling young lady (who by the way was not a puppet but a very hard working, support staff member). Our waiter was... More

We really enjoyed our night at Bouillon Bilk with some minor exceptions: the menu wasn't extremely varied (ie all but one option had cheese making it very limiting if you have an allergy), it's not in a great part of town, and our dessert was while inventive, not good! The waitstaff were polite and warm, though we did wait quite... More

BB was a bulls eye selection. Stark interior decor is the canvas on which the food is a total standout. The food has that much explosion of presence that the background completely fades away. The wine pairings recommended by our STAR waiter for each of our courses were spot on. As if the wine were purposely made for that dish.... More

This was a hell of a surprise! Located on a rather sketchy street in one of the less prestigious neighbourhoods in Montreal, this is a must visit in Montreal! The restaurant features wooden tables giving it sort of a rustic look that meets modernity. The service is attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. The menu changes every couple weeks. I had veal...

I think that maybe this is one of those restaurants that the locals don't want tourists to know about. We found it but after almost walking right past it. The front was two plain glass windows - a very simple store front. Once inside, I was struck with the fact that the walls were empty of any decorations, but the... More

I was invited to a business lunch in Montreal. I checked out the place on the web and the street view was underwhelming to say the least. The street view bore precious little relation to what awaited me when I entered. Boullion Bilk was buzzing with clientel. The service was top flight from the minute we walked in the door.... More

Without a doubt Bouillon Bilk is a go to when you're looking for a dining experience in Montreal. Building a reputation as one of the best foodie restaurants in Montreal, the Boullion Bilk actually has little to offer in terms of setting. Stuck between two electronics stores and simplistic in decor, the little 20 table restaurant fully makes up for... More
