Actually went before March '14, but found the place dark, crowded, very expensive for what you got, ordinary meal, and seemed to be a place to go 'to be seen'. Not worth it for us, definitely, and we'll not return any time soon.

Spoke to both Aldo and Marcelo which were very accommodating and managed to squeeze us in for Valentine's dinner. The service was amazing, the young lady read the specials and was making me salivate because everything sounded so good. We ordered appetizers and for our main dish, the Chillean Sea Bass was delicious. My fiancé ordered meat with pasta in... More

My daughter and I were staying at a nice hotel in Montreal. We eat gluten free. The hotel recommended Bis. We talked to the owner before we went who assured us everything would be fine. When we got there, he personally greeted us, showed us to our table, and talked to us about the food options. We had the filet... More

We like BIS. Interesting menu with good value, refined if you feel like it. Service is not always the same, then mention it and it comes back to normal. Many regular clients. Good food.

After making a horrible error in judgment waiting to make reservations until the very last minute on New Years Eve, my boyfriend and I ended up calling around the city for over an hour for reservations. Nobody was courteous or helpful throughout Montreal until we spoke to the people at Ristorante Bis. They offered us a reservation, though later than... More

We decided to go to Bis without a reservation tonight 12/27/14 and they were very accommodating. They seated us a little close to the door and Marcello ( one of the partners) immediately moved us to a beautiful corner table. We shared burrata with prosciutto antipasto, it was delicious. I order cavatelli with broccoli and fennel sausage while my husband... More

Our 7th Anniversary, my wife insisted we go to an authentic Italian restaurant and we got what she asked for. Impeccable caring service - was this because my wife chatted in Italian with the maitre d'? We both got a roman style saltinbocca, nearly perfect after a fried calamari starter. Definitely one of the best in Montreal for couples or... More

I went with a colleague because the restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge. It was not full but the ambiance was okay. We took an Italian style starter of 4 small dishes which was good but certainly not special. The mozzarella was medium quality, sorry As main course I took a linguine with shrimps, this was a mistake.... More

Went to this restaurant with 8 clients and had a wonderful evening. The appetizer prepared for us was tasty- too bad we were not given the option to choose it- the mains were also very good. Overall it was a great experience.
