Didn't think we'd get into this restaurant as it was a sat night but managed a last minute reservation for 930. Place was packed and atmosphere was great.Staff were friendly and accommodating, service quick and professional. Plenty of Italian favourites but menu is printed on a chalk board and so brush up on your french and bring your glasses (no... More

Went there on a Friday night with work colleagues, had the lamb which was as tough as leather. Pasta was overcooked, poor service and presentation. Overpriced and overrated.

we were in montreal for a weekend with some friends and decided to try this place. We know it was quite famous but wanted to see what it was like for ourselves. We were pleasantly surprised, the atmosphere was amazing, the services was excellent and food was very good. There were several comments about the food being expensive, we didn't... More

I recently had the privilege of dining at this restaurant. It was one of the finest Italian meals I have had anywhere. The service was impeccable. The waiter made excellent suggestions and the couple we were with raved about the food, the ambience as well as the service. It is pricey, but well worth it.

My wife and friends recently ate at Da Emma's. We've been there once. We won't be back. Overall the food was good, although expensive. My bigger issue was the arrogant attitude of our waiter. First off, I got a look when I ordered a $50 bottle of wine, and not a far more expensive one. As well, I would have... More

The servers were very friendly and took the time to explain everything on the menu. My husband had the salmon....he said it was amazing! I had the pork....very nice as well.... More

I went here about two years ago(12/12) and I still think about this restaurant. Particularly this pasta dish that my boyfriend and I split when we really should have both ordered our own. As a women who is well versed in pasta, this was quite possibly the best pasta I have ever had. If I remember correctly it was a... More

The food was good, about what you would expect for the price, but the service was way below our expectations. We got yelled at three times, once for asking for cheese on the pasta, the second time for asking for dessert while we were still drinking wine and finally for trying to pay with an international debit card. It really... More

Finally went to dinner here this ex women's prison I enjoyed the atmosphere and service was excellent through out our meal. The menu is presents on a kind of bulletin chalk board carried by the waiter and left for us to look at , quite different but bit hard to read. My date had the Gnocchi with a salad and... More

Da Emma is one of the best places to eat in the area. The food is off the charts and the wine list is first rate.
