Empty Tables Are A Crime

We were in Montreal recently, visiting family, and my aunt-in-law took us to this restaurant for dinner. It was a Saturday night, and she'd had trouble getting a reservation for a large group (there were nine of us), so I was a bit suspicious when she told us that this was the only place she could... read more

Montreal is a GREAT food city, and Code Ambiance ranks right at the top. Delicious, thoughtful, lovely food -- likewise the decor and service.

The food was phenomenal and reasonably priced! Highly recommended for a fun, relaxing couples evening. I took my wife out for her birthday... The server remembered our names from the time we made our reservation and surprised us with a nice dessert at the end. My wife loved the chicken in honey and Cajun sauce and I really enjoyed the...

Located in a quiet neighborhood, Code Ambiance is beautifully decorated and welcoming. A weeknight in November means Montreal is relatively quiet, and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Our charming hostess, Nathalie, was extremely attentive to our every need. But the FOOD was the star of the evening .. a special birthday dinner for a good friend. The... More

After much perusing on TripAdvisor for restaurants in Montreal we chose Code Ambiance, it was just calling my name! Loved the cozy neighborhood feel. The decor was decidedly modern but not stuffy. From the moment we were greeted by Nathalie our evening was a memorable one. A party of self proclaimed foodies, we all selected different apps and entrees so... More

I made a reservation at this restaurant based on reviews and location. It did not disappoint! The service was personalised and attentive. The food was mouthwatering! The foie gras melted in your mouth! Do not hesitate to try this restaurant.

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....
