I've been to Da Emma several times, usually because a friend chose to go there. It would not be my choice to go there because for the amount of money charged, there are far better Italian restaurants in Montreal. Positive aspects are the outdoor patio, if the weather permits and the convenient free valet parking. The atmosphere inside the dining... More

My husband, brother-in-law and I ate here an thought the entire experience was outstanding!! The food was superb from the appetizers to the main entree. We all left there thinking it was the best Italian food we have had in Canada!! The meatballs were the best!! Can't wait to go back!!

We booked a university grad dinner with 2 other out of town families last night - and could not have been happier with our evening! Our waiter was attentive - went out of his way to make our grads feel special; presented complementary bruschetta while we perused the menu; went around to each person before the meal to explain certain...

If you want an authentic Italian five star dining experience Da Emma is the restaurant to go to! The menu is fabulous and described in great detail by the amazing staff. The location and decor is worth the trip . It is a must visit whenever my husband and I get to Montreal

The food in this place is not bad, it is nothing you will remember for its quality, but is not bad. The service was another thing. It would have not been so bad if they would have not pour some tap water in a glass with sparkling water or ask "what is that?" when asked for a ristretto (isn't it... More

Upscale Italian restaurant with an expensive menu. Buffalo cheese was like no other. Pasta dish was unexpectedly average, but not everything can be superlative. Emma went to extra effort to ensure my son had a custom meal with sauce on the side of his ravioli. Atmosphere is more for business and romantic types than families. Service was OK, not special....

Our food was terrific and the service was great. The menu was handwritten on a chalk board and a little hard to read but that's the worse thing I can say about it. Would definitely recommend it.

Loved, loved, loved our meal at this restaurant. We walked in rain, snow, hail to get to this restaurant and unknowingly arrived an hour before they opened. The server graciously greeted us and took us in. We ordered a few cocktails and then proceeded to have one of the best Italian meals ever! I had the Capreese salad and my... More
