Went was 7 family members and they all loved the food!! Having been there before I had them try food they had never had before so it was a lot of fun. A very comfortable place to enjoy an evening.

Rainy mid-week night and decided to give Code Ambiance a try -- are we ever glad we did! My dining date took a la carte and enjoyed Alaskan Black Cod starter and Veal Sweetbreads that were best ever eaten! I went for the Discovery four-course menu and had foie-gras, venison tenderloin exquisitely prepared -- of course we shared plates back... More

My friends took me to Code Ambiance during my bachelorette trip to Montreal. It was a bit out of our way but well worth the cab ride. Our reservation was pretty early as we had tickets for a show that evening, so at first we had the restaurant to ourselves but it filled up as the night wore on. It's... More

I tend to judge French restaurants by their veal sweetbreads and and these were among the best that I've had. The chef used the inner part of the medallions and prepared them lightly crisped with a great sauce, The real stroke of genius was serving them with a small green salad and a citrus dressing, thus cutting through the sauce....

We are visiting Montreal and have been less than impressed by the proliferation of really bad service. On Friday night we searched urbanspoon for a restaurant that provided an overall dining experience, great food paired with great service. This restaurant was highly reviewed so we made a reservation. It's a lovely restaurant run by a husband and wife team. The... More

We made a reservation online and mentioned that it was our anniversary trip. Natalie greeted us and got us settled, and Bastian came to discuss our food selections. He was honest and friendly and did not try to talk us out of appetizer portions but did point out one that would have been too small to share. His recommendations were... More

We found this charming place for drinks on Friday night. We were warmly greeted by owners Natalie and Bastian even though it was clear that they were getting ready to close. No rush! Their passion for food and service was so genuine we couldn't wait to return the next night to try the food. No disappointment here. Bastian prepared a... More

You won't be disapointed with this one. The place looks good, cosy but modern, the food was excellent and there is an excellent choice of wine. the owner is French, and unlike (I'm joking) most of his compatriotes, absolutely friendly. If you have the chance to get a silver spoon of fork, enjoy it, but please leave it in the... More

Unassuming, but quiet, good for relaxing or a chat with friends. Unusual menu with interesting, well cooked choices. I had Alaskan black cod with wild Patagonian pepper and black Chinese rice, and I don't think that is a combination you will find in many places. Many plates come in starter or main sizes, so you can play with the menu... More

This elegant and warm restaurant never ceases to deliver the finest dishes. Such an attention to detail. Every ingredient seems masterfully selected. The fois gras is just incomparable. Good to note: some items are available as half portions so you can make it to dessert (or taste everything!).
