The measure of quality in a French restaurant for me is the duck and the duck at Chez la Mere Michel was spectacular. Desert was another highlight with a lovely Grand Marnier souffle. The waiters were really good - friendly and pleasant. Not a cheap night out but you have to pay for real quality.

Wonderful French cuisine. A gem hidden in the heart of downtown Montreal. Old fashioned service. Beware, things are not rushed. If you think you will be in and out in a jiffy, forget about it. This is a great place to eat wonderful food and have a great time with friends and/or family.

It had been several years since our last visit and we were looking forward to another wonderful meal. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and sat at our table where we waited and waited for menus and wine list. When we finally got the menus, it was another ½ hour until our orders were taken. There was no apology or explanation for the delay. The restaurant was not crowded for a Saturday night, there was a table of 8 in our room that was served two courses before we even got one! We were there over 1 1/2 hours before we received our appetizers but we were not disappointed when they arrived. All the food was delicious and just as good as we remembered. Make sure that you save room for the wonderful Grand Marnier soufflé for dessert. Finally, at the end of the evening we were told that the delay had been due to a private party of 20 people apparently being served by the only waiter in the restaurant. We were disappointed not to have received an apology for the delay and a thank you for our patience. I think before we go there again, we’ll make sure there isn’t a large private party going on.

Chez la Mere Michel is a classic French restaurant on the west end of downtown Montreal. It is located in a beautiful mansion and it feels as if you are entering someone's home when you arrive. The wait staff is extremely professional, but charming as well. Food is prepared in the classic French style with no tricks or trendiness. The food is high quality and the service impeccable. Extensive wine list available and your waiter will offer you appropriate options to suit your taste and budget. My husband and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary there and spent 3 hours enjoying our wonderful meal. He enjoyed foie gras, French onion soup, rabbit and found room for the poached pear dessert (excellent and definitely enough for 2). I tried the prix fixe dinner which included an appetizer of chard in lobster sauce, duck in citrus sauce and a strawberry souffle. Mine even came with a glass of red wine. We received a complimentary glass of dessert wine to help celebrate our special occasion as well. A delightful experience and wonderful meal.
