Just had a meal during Mtl a Table! (If you don't know what that is you are missing out!!). Meal consisted of 3 courses of Terroir cooking and was delicious. My wife had the fish and I had the Bavette. Both succulent but the apple dessert was sublime. Definitely will return!! Service was consistent and the waiter was very friendly!

Location: St. Paul East in the old port. The closest subway is Champ-de-Mars and it's less than a ten-minute walk. Street parking is available though sparse, and there's a lot not too far from the restaurant, but I think the going rate is $15. The place: Gorgeous! Very classy and cozy, with high ceilings and windows facing out onto St.... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Montreal and deservedly so. Laurent Godbout is an artist and his creativity shines through in all of his dishes .Unfortunately our visit did not meet expectations .Let me start with the positives . We were there as part of this year's Montreal a Table and this was the first of several restaurants... More

Wonderful restaurant in a lively district by the port. Excellent menu and service. This was our first evening in Quebec and set the tune for the rest of the experience. I have never had a tastier foie gras - light and creamy, very different from what we get in the US.

We chose this restaurant because we wanted a tasting menu in old Montreal. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we mentioned this in our open table reservation. The servers at the restaurant put us in a private area of the restaurant to accommodate this request. No kidding, this was the best meal we have ever... More

This city never lets me down with almost every culinary discovery and this restaurant did not disappoint. The four of us decided to go with the tasting menu complete with wine pairing. A small, crispy, square shaped filo dough stuffed with tart goat cheese and olive mousse was served to us as an amuse bouche...let the games begin! First course:... More

Had dinner here with a group of 9 (following end of business meetings) on a Saturday evening. Service very professional and friendly; food amazingly good with very creative presentations, everything fresh and very flavorful. Would definitely like to return on next visit to Montreal.

Thanksgiving Monday and we had dinner at Chez L’Epicier. We had to guarantee our reservation with a credit card, a rare occurrence I’m not that happy to do but many restaurants in Montreal are closed on Monday and being a holiday there seemed to be a lot of American tourists so reservations were hard to get. In hindsight I’m glad... More

We sat beside a window overlooking the market. Pleasant atmosphere. Delicious food. Great Service. Desserts are special too. This chef serves the best duck I have had since Bishops in Vancouver. Definitely world class. As a matter of fact he will soon be repreesenting Canada in a world competition. Remember to take a macaron home.
