I planned to go to this restaurant for some time. It was on the top of my list. Spanish (Bascque) tapas, great reviews. When I saw it on the list of MTL à TABLE I jumped - we have to go. MTL à TABLE has three price categories. Pintxo was at the highest - alongside with Chez L'Épicier, Chez Queux,... More

The food is beyond exceptional. We had an assortment of 8 tapas dishes. Each one brought with it a new taste sensation. Outstanding options were the seared scallop and the foie gras. We also loved the garlic prawns - beautifully fresh, cooked to perfection in a wonderful sauce. The stuffed figs were superb, cooked with cheese. A really unusual but... More

This was simply our best meal on a recent trip to Montreal and Quebec City. Our knowledgeable, professional server provided spot on recommendations, steered us from a couple of dishes about which she felt less enthusiastic , and ended up orchestrating an integrated repast of harmonious dishes punctuated by imaginative counterpoints of tastes and textures. The ability to sample such... More

We were there with a friend and the meal was excellent. The server provided a good level of service, and the food was well delivered at the right spacings. The lamb I had was not Canadian, which was disappointing, but was still excellently spiced with the right combination of latin spices. Overall a good night. Please note. The resto is... More

I have eaten tapas all over the US and in Barcelona and these were by far the best I have ever had. The creative combinations were actually as amazing as they sounded on the menu. I had five different ones, mostly seafood based but also a venison special. I arrived early by Montreal standards and luckily got my order in... More

English version to follow Belle tapas goûteuses et recherchées dans la présentation. Option de menu avec 4 tapas en entrée choisies par le chef + un plat principal que vous choisissez, belle idée ! pour 38 $. L'ambiance est raffinée et le service présent et discret à la fois. Attention cependant, l'addition peut monter rapidement dès qu'on ajoute vin et/ou... More

The service was pretty unpleasant--it seemed rushed and yet slow. The wait staff seemed to have no time or patience for questions, and they were barely polite until right before the check came, when our server suddenly became friendly. Unlike tapas we have had elsewhere, the portions here were individual-sized, yet they tended to serve one person at a time... More

Best of its kind - food was truly delicious, though very small servings - waiter agreed correctly that for the 3 of us we needed about 12 tapas. (Prices, however, were very reasonable). The service was perfect; that was especially important when you have 12 separate items and need them to come to your table at the proper intervals.

Great food, service, and atmosphere. They got everything just right. We just ate tapas, which are great because you can try all this unusual stuff, like octopus carpaccio, which was a distinctive and enjoyable appetizer, but not something I would eat a lot of. One thing to note: the waitress recommended 5-6 tapas per person, but we I think ended... More

We went because we were given a gift certificate. Service was excellent. The waitress paid attention to our needs and served us promptly. I don't like goat cheese, so she suddenly remembered that one of the pintxos that I wa given had some, and she whisked it away just as I was about to eat it. We had 4 pintxos... More
