Montrealers love to party... 7 days a week. This place is always happening, no matter what day I have been there. So for mid-week business travelers who think they might be missing out on weekend fun: EVERY day is the weekend at Cavalli's :) Good food, place was too busy to have "perfect service" but more than good enough.

My boss had been here a couple of times with clients and liked it, so he took me there for our Christmas lunch. I had the lamb chops and they were very good. There were only two choices for dessert, which I find very strange. The choices were creme caramel (which I hate) or cheesecake. I chose the cheesecake, obviously.... More

I visited the restaurant about 2 weeks ago! The pasta dish i ordered was excellent and full of flavour. The portions were small therefore i recommend ordering an appetizer as well. Overall I would return.

I visited this restaurant a few months ago and needed to cool down before writing this review. Our orders were taken, drinks were delivered and then we received our mediocre food. After that, our waitress abandoned us to sit at the owner's table, drinking and laughing with abandon. I have never had such a rude experience -- especially one that... More

I would not visit this restaurant if it was the last place on earth and I was dying of starvation. You can take your chances and waste your money at this place, but be warned that if you have any type of problem, you WILL NOT be treated with professionalism or courtesy. You will immediately receive a harsh, unprofessional, and... More

Focus is more on decor and outfits than on quality of food. Mostly for the 'be seen' crowd. Unsure why anyone would go back.

I dined here on a busy Saturday night. I had lobster fettuchini. Pasta was perfectly al dente (hard to find) and the lobster was yummy. Great lively ambiance, it almost looks like a club. Despite enjoying the meal I would NEVER return here because of how I was treated by the host. Because I was dining alone, the host refused... More

Thw place has a nice ambiance and is very lively with overall friendly service. However, the food was a let down, they tried to hard to make it special but just couldn't make it work. Especially when considering the prices! Similarly, the waitresses clearly focus on the bigger groups (tip). After placing my order I has to constantly signal for... More

When we lived in Montreal, we enjoyed many great experiences and meals at Cavalli.....the best Mac & Cheese in existence was always my go-to dish...may have been something to do with the truffle oil?! On this visit back to Montreal, it was tricky as needed a vegan option and wait staff were amazing in their attention to all our needs... More
