    Look at :

    Downtown/Old Montreal
    Decca 77
    Club Chasse et Pèche
    La Montée
    Newtown (?)

    Other 'hoods:
    La Chronique
    M sur Masson

    ... any particular things you are looking for ? wine list ? food style ? ambiance ? ethnicity ?

      Thank you for your reply... I have been to most you have mentioned above apart from Eurpea and I dont thinl LCCP do lunch now... And I have heard really mixed reviews for Newtown.

      I am in the business so I just want a great experience with a great wine list and any ethinicity...

      Is La Chronique open for Lunch?

        Yes, La Chronique is open for lunch, and a good choice, though if money is no object I would consider Toqué as well. None of the choices above is a bad one.

          Toqué doesn't do lunch. They did it for a while after they moved to the Quartier International, but it didn't last very long.

      My top vote would go to Europea for the food, elegant service and extra special touches. They have a very knowledgeable sommelier as well. Oh, and of course the lobster cappuccino.

      That being said, I have yet to go to Decca 77, but have heard it is also excellent.

        Renoir at Sofitel offers a lunch Table d'hote, and if food is as good a dinner time, it should be a great place for lunch

          I had a late lunch at the Renoir around 2 and they were out of just about everything, so go early if you take this option.

          I second the vote for la Montée. The staff is knowledgeable and makes one feel at ease. I enjoyed their wine recommendations, and 3$ for a dessert is a real steal!

              I second Milos. As long as no one in your group has a seafood/fish allergy (though they do have a few meat options) Milos has a lovely weekday lunch special, really terrific food, and a classy atmosphere. Busy, though.

              Having gone to La Montée for lunch last week, I have to say it is a place to return!
              The place is gorgeous, the food beautiful and as delicious as can be. Wonderful options for wine by the glass makes it just perfect. And oh the dessert.
              My mouth waters remembering.

                For great value...and delicious food of course- Mas Cuisine on Wellingtion in Verdun. 15$ for a 2 course meal including coffee or tea. Pretty much an amazing chef behind all the dishes..and i have tried many there... And I mention this regardless of the good deal..it is indeed a great experience!
