Description: Premiere auberge d’Amerique du Nord et premier debit de boisson legal au pays, l’Auberge Saint-Gabriel a deja abrite l’imprimerie du journal Le Patriote et meme un poste de traite de fourrures avant de devenir un des hauts lieux de la gastronomie quebecoise et l’une des destinations les plus tendances de la vie nocturne montrealaise. Pour un verre sur la terrasse ou a l’un des bars intimes, un repas dans l’opulente salle a manger ou un evenement prive dans l’un des somptueux halls, l’Auberge est la complice de toutes les meilleures soirees depuis plus de 300 ans. Acquise en 1987 par la famille Bolay, l’Auberge Saint-Gabriel a conquis ses lettres de noblesse. Ses nouveaux proprietaires, Marc Bolay, Garou et Guy Laliberte, en ont fait un vrai joyau, transformant ce temoin du passe en une incarnation resolument moderne a coups de clins d’œil ludiques sur l’histoire. La cure de rajeunissement de l’Auberge est l’œuvre de Bruno Braen (Rufus Rockhead, Club Chasse et Peche, Big in Japan). Braen, qui sans pretention s’amuse avec l’iconographie de l’histoire du Quebec, rend hommage au patrimoine sans faire d’entorse a la legerete. Un reel tour de force! La carte de l’Auberge est confiee a Emilie Rizzetto, une chef creative et dynamique dont la reputation n’est plus a faire. D’origine francaise, Emilie a travaille dans la region de Saint-Emilion jusqu’a ce qu’elle emigre au Quebec, ou elle participe a l’edition 2012 de la populaire emission de television Les chefs! Sa brigade de sept cuisiniers et de trois patissiers accorde une place preponderante aux produits regionaux. Le menu fait la part belle aux savoureux plats de viandes et de poissons cuits a la broche dans la spectaculaire rotissoire, qui se trouve en pleine salle a manger. Difficile de faire plus convivial et chaleureux! Envie de prolonger la soiree? Descendez au Velvet, un univers parallele au sous-sol de l’Auberge. Longez le grand couloir de pierres uniquement eclaire par des cierges et engouffrez-vous dans la fumee opaque qui encercle la piste de danse du club le plus branche de Montreal. Explorez la carte de cocktails completement eclatee et decouvrez les meilleurs DJ. Au Velvet, tout est permis. On s’etonne meme de devoir quitter l’endroit a 3h du matin…

We chose this restaurant for a friend's birthday after rave recommendations from others. We weren't disappointed. Service was attentive and pleasant with lots of unexpected touches such as several different amuse bouches along the way. We had a leisurely meal and never felt rushed. Plates were exquisitely presented and focused on taste over quantity. While the restaurant filled up after our arrival we never felt intruded upon and background noise seemed to soak into the stone walls rather than bounce back into the room. The bill was significant but not outrageous, and our friend was delighted with her special evening. I will definitely return.

We dined for lunch which was incredible!! The restaurants there have a menu that offers two or three choices from appetizers/entrees/desserts. You pick two for one price and three for another. We decided to choose three, one of each. I had a fabulous salad with pear and candied pecans and went on to a Duck breast with the side dishes and then had dessert which was small sugared donuts with a chocolate mousse on the side and a scoop of ice cream. My travelling partner had the same salad but a different entree which was a pasta with braised beef which was very delicious but a different dessert which was also very delicious. The breads were incredible!!! The service and atmosphere were superb! I wish that I could frequent this restaurant on a regular basis.

After a few setbacks, my friends and I finally managed to dine at Auberge Le Vieux St. Gabriel. We were celebrating a belated birthday for my friend. We all enjoyed our meal choices. Frederick, our waiter, attended to our every need and queries in both official languages. Each dish is presented in such an artistic way, one is tempted not to eat it but just gaze upon it. We all enjoyed our respective main courses immensely along with the 'amuse bouche' that preceded each course.

As a dessert, my companions chose the Snow Ball, which is for 2 people, but easily served all three of us, with dessert to spare. We will return.
