We dined here while visiting Montreal and after reading TripAdvisor reviews. We were impressed. The atmosphere here is bistro casual, service is attentive and knowledgeable without being snobbish, and the food superlative. Wine list was noticeably thoughtfully chosen. We'll be back. A must-visit in Montreal.

Lovely restaurant which is overlooked pretty easily. It is kind of dark at night, no place to read your book at night (in case you eat alone, like I did)

Our reservation for Au Pied Du Cuchon did not work out so we asked the front desk at our hotel for a recommendation. He recommended Boris Bistro so we decided to give it a try. All the other restaurants we called were fully booked on a Saturday evening. However, when we called Boris, there was no issue for reservation so... More

The outdoor terrace is just perfection. It has this old world feel, with cobble stone ground and old brick walls. Huge trees that are light up in the evening all around you and above you. The menu had very different and interesting options. We tried 4 appetizers and all were phenomenal. I had the Boris Tuna and was very pleased... More

Love the outdoor location. If you're a non-smoker, be sure and tell them for in Montreal there are plenty of smokers here. The food is great! We ate there twice for lunch and both times was great (just ask for non smoking area).

This is located in an old building with no roof. There's a lovely courtyard and it fun to eat here. The service was impeccable. The food was good but not outstanding.

Came here after work and it was very busy with after work people. The place has a lot of seating though so we lucked out and got one of the last few spots in the outdoor seating area. Great concept and atmosphere and very picturesque. For vegetarians - there are 3-4 appetizer options and one main vegetarian dish. I ordered... More

Five of us enjoyed dinner at the Boris Bistro restaurant and everyone was pleased with what they ordered. The duck risotto was excellent and a dish I would never find on the menu at home in Virginia, USA. The red tuna (Boris style) was also memorable. When dessert time came, we were not disappointed. One person ordered the cheese ice... More
