Visiting Montreal 1st week in July
Arriving July 1st with my Man for a birthday (mine) holiday. We love eating outdoors when the weather permits. I would love recommendations for French and local cuisine restaurants for lunch and dinner. The "BIG" night if someone could steer us to something special and maybe a little or a lot romantic I'm sure he would thank you. If it helps we are staying at the Hotel Gault, 449, rue Sainte-Hélène. Really, I would appreciate your help.

There have been some great threads recently:
For inexpensive places not to miss:
For Bring your own wine restaurants: Montreal is very well known for excellent BYOW, the food can be very high quality, and it is fun to buy a really nice bottle or 2 and have a nice meal to match it.
Here is a thread with multiple links to other threads for romantic places to eat, and some of the must eat places. This is a fairly recent thread so all of these recs are still valid:
Feel free to peruse these threads, and come back with any questions. Have a great trip!
