It is a bit far from the main street and seems to be in a residential area. I can tell there are quite a few loyal customers in the restaurant. There is not English menu but the staff didn't mind to give us detailed explanation patiently. I have never experienced such creamy chicken liver in my life and the restaurant... More

This time we were invited by a friend who is a frequent customer of Au Petit Extra and the experience was value. The menu is just one page and all it's dishes come with their recommended wine to pair.... More

This was a pleasant meal, well cooked and presented but lacking balance - when are restaurants going to serve more vegetables to balance out the meals. The wine list is extensive but lacks local choices. Our waiter was excellent. A nice neighbourhood restaurant.

My husband and I ate here on our recent trip to Montreal. It was recommended by the owner of our B&B and we are so glad we followed his suggestion! Our waitress, France, was great. Very nice and she took the time to go over the entire menu in English with us! I had a chicken dish that was cooked... More

We sat at the bar and talked with the staff as they came and went between customers. Do this! We have always found Au Petit welcoming and friendly... We began coming here 20 years, but it had been awhile since the last visit... The service, the atmosphere, the food are all still here, as are the blackboards with the handwritten... More

The food is exceptional. The atmosphere is lovely and quaint. Our server, France, is the best! We always sit in her section. She has a vast knowledge of wines and is very happy to assist you in choosing a wine to compliment your meal.....

I've been to this resto about 10 times and always loved it. I considered it one of my favorites in this city. A recent visit left me less than thrilled with the food. the service was great, the wine great, the ambiance marvelous still. But my meal lacked. One thing I detest in a restaurant is smelling the oil of... More

Been going to this restaurant for about 10 years now and yes the staff can be a bit cold but as the eveing progresses they really warm up and are very funny and talkative. The food is very French and always good. The wine list is fantastic, as they have many private imports and very affordable, fun evening out with... More

A true French experience. Faux Gras, 2 kinds of duck, cuisse de canard confit, canard breast sliced, a wonderful nutty green salad and Pinot Noir from the Bourgogne. A somewhat reserved waiter and high prices. I thought (for a moment) I was back in Paris!
