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

On a perfect fall night, Boris Bistro ' s patio is almost unbeatable. We did not eat dinner but had rounds of drinks - great prices and good selection. Can't comment on the diner experience but as a summer terrace for drinks, this place is awesome.

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
