We started with the oysters which were amazing and fresh. The mignonette was made with rhubarb. It was delicious and unusual. That was the tone for the whole meal. Lobster, duck and scallops were all perfectly cooked and accompanied by mouses gelles and crunchy bits that were all tasty and interesting. Some combinations worked brilliantly , others were just interesting.... More

Food and service were impeccable. Liked the modern design elements. Our friends are vegetarian and they may the ravioli without the lamb (some places don’t go that far to accommodate). Overall, the entrees and mains were really awesome. Much better value than Torque!, although that was a special place. I’d return here for sure on my next Montreal visit.

I agree with other reviewers that the cuisine is inventive--although sometimes overly fussy (a superb Hamachi appetizer was not enhanced by the intense tastes of the accompanying raspberries and blackberries. The service is terrible: interminable waits between courses, indifferent and inattentive wait staff. And unreasonably high prices.

If you love French food, you absolutely must visit bouillon bilk. I've been here several times and was never once disappointed. The service is attentive. The oysters were great. The cavatelli rabbit lemon appetizer was amazing. Every dish I've had was great. I especially loved dessert, fresh baked cookies.

If you scan my TA reviews you'll see I reserve a full 5 stars for a very few standout restaurants. Bouillon Bilk deserves every one of them. I think the closest experience I've had to this—my first but definitely not last dinner at Bouillon Bilk—is one a couple of years ago at Antico Arco, an exceptional restaurant in Rome: both... More

We'd been to Bouillon Bilk a few times before the renovation/expansion and were keen to try out its new space, and check whether the whole experience was the same. We weren't disappointed. Now, it's important to mention that BB's chefs experiment with flavours, textures and temperatures. None of your classic/standard fare here, there's surprise in every dish. The upside is... More

This restaurant was a suggestion of my dad. He kept on telling me the food was better than Toqué at a fraction of the price. So we decided to try it and make our own opinion. After trying it I have to agree! The food was very good and well priced for it's quality. The service was amazing and the... More

This is my second visit in 3 months. Why did I wait so long to return?? Since I’d been here last, the restaurant has doubled in surface. They bought the commerce next door and doubled the size of the restaurant. Small or larger, the restaurant was still packed and there’s no telling of any construction. It’s like it happened overnight.... More

This was the meal I was waiting to find ever since we arrived in Montreal. I had the ravioli and the mix of flavors was a savory party in my mouth. I just wish it were priced more reasonably. If you like thrifting, treat yourself to the store down the street, called Eva B (2015 Saint-Laurent). It was an entertaining... More
