“Very pleasant experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

We went there, 2 couples who enjoyed a very professional and smiling service with amazingly presented and prepared food. The ratio quality/quantity/price is pretty good. We left the restaurant charmed by the simplicity of the place and the pleasure employees working there were irradiating. One little flaw, far too noisy (we could hardly hear what the waitress was saying).

“A very good BYOB”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We eat here occasionally and really like the cosy, simple but charming place with its varnished wood tables, lots of daylight and very fresh, yummy, mostly French or French-inspired dishes ..served with delicious, crusty baguette. And house-made desserts are not to be missed.

This year, during the Montréal en Lumière fest their lunch was both excellent and excellent value, at $25 for 3-courses.

“C'est le Secrets le Mieux Garde (Best Kept Secret in Montreal)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

C'est magnifique! Excellent service by Dominic and his crew. The food was outstanding with well planned meals that complimented the flavour profiles of each side and main entree. The staff were very knowledgeable about the menu items and how they compliment different types of wines - even if you bring the wine yourself, which is an added bonus. The atmosphere is laid back and very local. Even though the food and service is exceptional, all food is priced very reasonably. Thanks to the staff at Quartier General for an amazing food experience. Merci beaucoup! A la prochaine.

“Good food and decent price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of the 5 best "BYOW" restaurant in Montreal in my opinion. The friendly service and the ambiance will put you at ease right away. As appetizers, the fried "Gaspor Porc" is very good but a bit small in portion. My wife's "Foie Gras" is generous in size and perfectly cooked. As mains, my "Cote de veau" and my wife's "Filet de boeuf" are excellent. For desserts, the "Creme brule" is a bit on the runny side but the "Lemon curd" is quite good.

This is our third visit since the opening of this restaurant and won't be the last for sure.

“Great food - great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I loved it here - every main comes with a starter and the atmosphere is always great as it is such a popular BYOW. The server we had was also awesome - loved it!
