Very good restaurant that uses fresh local ingredients creatively. Service is excellent and the ambience is spare elegance.
We were only in Montreal for one night but it happened to be Restaurant Week so I booked a table for 3 people in advance. At the last minute a 4th person came along on the trip and I called the restaurant the night before to add one more person to the reservation. I was told that there were NO... More
This is a really nice French restaurant without being stuffy. The service is very professional yet friendly. We went during Taste of Montreal week so there was a table d'hôte for $39. But unlike other restaurants they treated you like you were paying full price. They greet you with a glass of maple cider as a gift to get the... More
We've eaten hear before, about two years ago, and loved it. Did not remember it being so overpriced. Only a few wines under $100/bottle. The food and service on the other hand were very good. Can't say that the dishes were very French, maybe more "nouvelle cuisine".
Visiting Montreal? Want real French food? Chez l'Epicier is a gem. Menu varies according to the produce available "En Saison". Staff really understand food and know precisely what they are serving. Menu is classic northern "French Modern" without the mass of creme, butter, fat that can be typical of this genre in northern France. Beautifully prepared, artistically arranged, service is... More

Not flash frozen at some big processing plant and then warmed, but fresh and prepared by the chef. Very, very good and the presentation was excellent. The restaurant was busy, but the service was attentive and... More
We chose this restaurant based on TA reviews and found it to be OK but not quite what we wanted. We had made reservations at least a month in advance but when we arrived we had to wait in line to be seated even though there were a number of vacant spots (then were seated at a table vacated by...

The kir is made with apple cider and maple syrup, coming off a little too... sweet. But we were warned, so we should have paid more attention. The amuse-gueule is a chocolate macaroon filled with goats cheese mixed with black olive, a little too much like dessert for a starter. The wines ran just a tad too expensive ($70) for... More
I've had several meals here over this summer and it has yet to disappoint - it's definitely one of th best restaurants I've even had the pleasure of eating at.
The food here was simply delicious! Our server was the right amount of attentive, but respectful of our space. The lighting and decor was really neat; sort of industrial (the overhead lighting were exposed bulbs that had large rolls of chicken coop wire around them. It was very cozy when they dimmed the lights as the night went on). The... More
