Hi,

Looking to go to Toque! soon and was wondering what kind of clothing I should be wearing. I understand it's one of the top restos in Montreal and I don't want to go dressed looking like a chump.

thx!

    For the record, except for a handful of places, you can pretty much go dressed "casual" to ALL Montreal restaurants, even the upscale ones. We don't have this "dressy" culture like in European cities.

      You can go dressed 'casual' to many upscale places, but if your dress is too casual, you may get service to match...

      I want to revive this thread and ask if Toque still has a casual dress code. From photos I've seen of the restaurant, the place seems to be more business casual? Is it more business-y or can I really get away with jeans and boots if it snows?

      While I'm on the topic, what's the dress code at Raza? I'm debating between Toque and Raza for a one-night dinner so would like to know about the dress code at Raza too.

      Thanks!

        Last year I went to Toqué with dad:
        Me: nice clean jeans, shirt and jacket, and nice shoes.
        Dad: 70' y.o. business casual-ish; no ties.

        At Raza, me think it's a lot more casual; jeans, shirt ...

        IMO, bring a pair of nice shoes (depending on the boots).

        In my years of observing women at restaurants (all classes); they can pretty much wear whatever they want in restaurants and there will be no issue. :-)

          Thank you, Max! Very helpful.

          Noted about the shoes, I'll have a more dressy pair on standby since the boots in question are heavy duty snow boots. :)

        If you check their website, you'll find that the dress code is casual.

        In general, people here are a lot more relaxed about dress codes than in the rest of North America. As long has you have a shirt and shoes, you should be fine.
