This is my 4th time visiting this restaurant. Each time was "average" but certainly tolerable. This last time, everything about this place has deteriorated. We were a part of 4 and had made reservations. Each of us had been there before. Where to start? The service was HORRIBLE: unbearably slow and totally ignored by the waiters who were there. They...

The wine selection was great. The horse tartare was delicious. The service was quick and accommodating. Loved the oysters!!!!! It is my favourite meal, if anyone has cheap places for oysters to recommend do not hesitate. Parking was easy, nearby and washrooms very accessible and no stairs therefore easy access. Enjoy!!!!

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

I don't use to go to french restaurants because are too expenses for me or I don't know what to order. 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.
