Everything was great: food, service and terrace! No cons. The beef tartare was perfect. We were a group and had no problem with the bill. Everybody just loved the place.

you can't compare this place with Le Local, so by local Montreal standards it's a very average restaurant, and yet almost the same price as Le Local, which makes no sense to me. But if you compare this place to an average restaurant in NYC, it's actually very good. We were seating outside and people were SMOKING there. That totally... More

Our table ordered two Duck Risotto with oyster mushrooms, sage and orange cream sauce and two Grilled Salmon and caramelized walnuts on baby spinach. The Duck Risotto was AMAZING! If we ever get to Boris Bistro again it will be tough to order something different as it was that good. The salmon was on the small side and cooked just... More

We saw that this place was highly rated, and most people seem to talk about the outdoor seating that they have...which does seem cool in warm weather, but that seems to overshadow their incredible food. If you enjoy escargot, do not miss that on their appetizer menu, it was the best that I have ever had. Everything that we had... More

Our concierge recommended 4 great spots along McGill in old Montreal. We got in at 1:00 and were told there would be a 15 minute wait. Only a couple of minutes later we were told there was a no show and we could have their table. They were very busy and we sat out in the courtyard on the gravel.... More

We had dinner at this nice place last august and we really enjoyed it. The terrasse is very large and eventhow it was packed, we didn't feel squeezed. The service was very friendly and the food was excellent. If you are looking for a good place to eat outside in the area of Old Montreal, don't hesitate to go there.

Boris was one of a handful of restaurants recommended by Sophie at our hotel. The next day, a local friend was quite impressed that we had discovered Boris! The patio is in the shell of an old building and feels like a secluded oasis. We were there on a weekday night in early September. The patio was full, not packed;... More
