Service with taste

This restaurant is a unique spot. Super friendly service. Bastien the owner and wine expert, in his French accent, makes wine pairing just right/ He has a very good wine list. His menu is compact but he does each dish to perfection. A relaxing place for lunch or dinner.

Nice and quiet, French restaurant with good food. The staff is friendly and the service was good. Good for small group, romantic diners or dates.

A former business colleague (now a friend) and I went for a long lunch on a weekday afternoon and were very satisfied. I knew this restaurant well under the previous owners (3 years ago!) and wondered how well it had made the transition; nothing to fear, it is excellent. It has the made the move from traditional Ambiance to modern... More

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 find that could take...

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.

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighborhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialized Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
