Delicious birthday dinner?

We are coming to Montreal to "celebrate" my 40th. I am looking for a top notch restaurant that has delicious food in an unpretentious/ super formal setting. Any suggestions?

    1. Au Pied du Cochon, Garde Manger, Laloux. (my personal fav, Via Dante)..You failed to mention what kind of food. Also be aware the notorious "Valentine's Day" ...many restaurants full and obnoxious behaviour will be rampant!! ;)

      1. re: mammab

        I wouldn't put any of the above three in the "unpretentious/super formal" category (unpretentious for the first and third, but not formal at all, and don't get me started on Garde Manger, which used to be good when it opened...) I would agree with La Chronique for top notch, also would look at Europea and Club Chasse et Peche. I don't think you can go wrong with any of those three, especially for a special birthday.

      2. I recently celebrated my 41st at Simpl├ęchic. Here for your delight and perhaps edification is my review:
