Dinner in Montreal - Week of Aug 10th

Bonjour all,

I will be in Montreal with my beautiful wife again this summer and need an interesting and different place for dinner. I have been to Pied de Cochon so not looking to go there. I will be staying downtown so any location is good. Food options are open...Meat/Fish/French whatever.

Would help if the place is nice and interesting...patio's are always a nice touch.

Thank you all for your help and suggestions.

  1. I have 3 downtown options for you, places I've been recently; La Montée on Bishop,
    Bice on Sherbrooke west, and Il Cortile, also on Sherbrooke west, it has a great courtyard. Montée is french, the other 2 are upscale italian with meat and fish options,
    more options at Bice.
    I'm sure you'll get tons of recs for the mile end and plateau area so I stuck to downtown options.

      Bice is expensive and not very good. I think it's much more a place "to see and be seen".

        I agree after looking at the menu. I have to many places in Montreal. This time I am looking for a total experience to share with my wife. I hate to say this but the food can be secondary.

          That would be a waste since Montreal has many restaurants that have both great atmosphere and amazing food. There's lots of threads on the greatest hits and favourites to find these in.

        Thank you very much. They all look very good.
