The staff were friendly enough, but the food was so tiny as to be laughable. I have eaten at many great restaurants, and do not begrudge an executive chef his or her flare. However, I do begrudge being starved for food and being charged a ridiculous price for it when there was no warning of it to start.

Three different prix fixe menus are offered, each containing 4 courses. My dinner included amuse bouche, a clam chowder, fish course, lamb, and dessert. The fish, lamb and dessert each had 3 presentations of their respective themes. Each plate's presentation was as exquisite as was it's taste.

We had one of the best meals of our lives my girlfriend and I. The service was flawless, the food was out of this world and the atmosphere was just pure magic. I like the fact they take one ingredient and turn it into many preparations with lots of creativity. You can see the versatility of the ingredients they use.... More

Amazing and creative! The menu is set up in trilogies - with different ingredients done three different ways. I started with a fois gras trilogy. It was amazing! I'm not a fois gras enthusiast but every single bite was fantastic. Who ever heard of fois gras with macaroons? And the meal just continued with every bite divine.

We left Montreal to go to Patriarche. We were 4 to have supper. It was not worth the drive. Service wise, I was not impressed. Food was missing a bit of delicacy. We started off with an "amuse bouche", which was a bite of boar. Good choice, tasty. The wine paring complemented the dish. Second course, a soup. This is... More

Four Diamond fancy restaurant. The food was great, the portions miniscule. Needed a magnifying glass to see portions. I had a fish dish that I really couldn't discerne the taste of the tuna or fish because it was literally a sliver.- more for show. Fortunately, the main course was more substantial. The service was slow and bad. We needed 3... More

I went to Patriarche for dinner tonight. We are foodies, and this looked like such a great place to enjoy our last night in the city. I was, unfortunately, mistaken. I want to be really clear in my review. The food was average-- nothing was prepared improperly, it was just bland and not creative. The two star review comes from... More

Amazing doesn't really apply, it's beyond anything we've ever experienced. Truly a meal of a lifetime. It took hours, every morsel was moan worthy, every wine pairing was perfect. Service was exceptional but not stuffy, our waiter was a great combination of friendly & attentive we had a great time. It's worth the price, I highly recommend the experience.

We had an absolutely delightful, delicious dinner. Service was excellent-- There were 10 of us and it could not have been better. They take a key ingredient and serve it 3 ways--- halibut three ways; lamb 3 ways, etc. It is a bit of a slow process but somehow it works b/c the service is so good and there is... More
