Spent yesterday evening at Christophe and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We were welcomed warmly and served beautifully throughout our meal. The waiter really cares if you are enjoying your meal and - as there weren't many people there early in our meal - I actually heard him tell the chef we were very pleased with our appetizers - and he sounded...

I'm a big fan of french cuisine. I went to France serveral time just to enjoy great food. Chez Christophe, you get a taste of France in Montreal. The service is remarkable. It is the kind of restaurant where you can have a good time with your friends, bring your own wine and eat like a king. The menu changes... More

Late review of a visit during the winter of 2014-2015 Chez Christophe is another staple on Van Horne avenue in the Outremont -Park Extension neighborhood. Décor is classical bistro. They have smaller rooms on the second floor for larger parties but you will miss the ambiance of the main floor. The noise level was manageable on the day we went... More

Very good French cuisine - peaceful ambience - attentive staff. We go to this restaurant about 4 times per year and are never disappointed.

Another Senior Contributor a few weeks ago came to same conclusion I am announcing here: go elsewhere if you have $50 or more to spend on a plate. As did the other Contributor, yes the service is sloooow! And the mathematics at the other end of the meal are surprisingly deceiving. Two of four in our party selected Menu Gastronomique.... More

Our first time in this restaurant where you can bring your own wine. Extremely noisy. 40' waiting between the entrée and the main dish. Too small portions and thus expensive. Very disappointed.

This meal was outstanding with intimate atmosphere and attentive service.We will go back for sure. We appreciated the fact that it was not noisy and we could take our time to enjoy the food. We selected the menu découverte. The foie gras is A plus.If you decide to go there, "bon appétit!".

I found the tasting menu (menu découverte) a good value, at $60 for 5 courses (really 4, since the fifth is a spoonful of sorbet to cleanse the palate after the foie gras, before the main course). Although I was not too impressed by the seared salmon appetiser, the veal dish was very good indeed, with a delicious potato gratin... More

For all you Foie Gras lovers out there... It's not hard to find Foie Gras on the menu in Montreal, but when it comes to being done right; properly deveined, well seared with a perfect center that hasn't vanished, a good dosing of salt and sweetness from a well selected fruit...Well, Christophe does that very well indeed. As for the... More

Staying in Outremont

Neighborhood Profile
Outremont, a quaint residential district just north of Downtown, is a peaceful, low-key setting known for its mod cafes and bistros, and some of the best walking territory Montreal has to offer. Visitors can explore the flowering parks and manor estates of Maplewood Street, then window-shop the popular bakeries and coffeehouses on main arteries of Chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine and Rue Van Horne. The modern granola feel is complemented by contemporary art exhibitions, rotating theater productions, and a welcoming public library. Also a nexus for the city's Hasidic Jewish culture, Outremont's diversity resounds in its cuisine and in its architecture. Visit the colorful neighborhood to take advantage of boutique shopping on Avenue Laurier, or to test the artisanal flavors of Avenue Bernard, braving a salmon burger on a squid-ink bun or accommodating your sweet tooth with a provincial chômeur pudding. A visit to Outremont is a relaxing day.
