“Exceptional!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Our experience here was remarkable. Food, service, wine list impeccable. Ambiance terrific; staff knowledgeable and professional. Each tapas dish was more delicious than the previous one and three hours slipped by in moments of tantalizing fish and seafood flavours with decadent desserts. We ordered the octopus dish twice in the evening!! Crab and asparagus risotto was memorable as was the sea bass. Combined with crisp vegetables , quinoa, subtle sauces, the chef is innovative and creative. Plating most pleasing. This is a unique dining experience in Montreal. Reservations a must. Hugely popular and worth the kudos.

“Excellente Cuisine”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Reserved myself a seat here after a rave review from a chef. It was a superlative experience, from the exquisite menu to the exceptional staff and the supreme service. I would highly recommend the Huîtres garnies, they are quite possibly the best oysters mortals have ever set teeth upon. The yellowfin tuna and artichoke, garnished with red pepper aioli, mint, and fried scallion, was absolutely fantastic. If you ever have the pleasure and opportunity to visit Montreal, and enjoy japanese cuisine, I would highly recommend trying out this restaurant de classe mondiale.

Note: They do have a dynamic menu with occasional specials.

“Deserves a 10/10-fabulous dining experience!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

You know when you try to make a reservation at a restaurant and there is only one 5:30 seating in an entire week, that your evening should be a memorable experience. Le Filet did not disappoint. The serving staff were knowledgeable of their menu and selection of wines, attentive without being intrusive-and friendly yet professional in the most complementary way. After a short discussion with our waiter, we chose to have the Chef's Tasting - with 2 requests - meal to be meatless...but to include oysters. Dinner arrived in comfortable intervals; we never felt rushed yet we never waited too long for the next course. Each dish was superb - the colours, the symmetry of design of each selection..it was all just first class....every bit as good as we've enjoyed in New York's finest. Our first dishes were the oysters-one order of 'raw on the half shell' and one order of oysters with a criisp miso topping....the raw were good, but the miso ones were delicious! A petit salad of scallop, avocado, orange and beet explored a variety of tastes and textures that melded brilliantly. The tataki of bluefin tuna or wagyu with eggplant and miso just melted in your mouth. Grilled octopus was succulent - served on a bed of crispy israeli couscous. The cod, dressed with macadamia nuts and diced chorizo was excellent - as was the crab risotto with asparagus. Throughout the meal, someone was there filling our water glasses, topping up our glasses of white wine, clearing away empty plates & setting out clean ones with each dish - without ever being in the way. Although it sounds like we ate enough for a football team, the portion size was ideal for sharing. Having said that, I have to admit we did not have room for dessert. Next time! Without a doubt, this was one of the most pleasurable dining experiences we have enjoyed in Montreal - or elsewhere.
