Weekend couples trip - dinner options

n

Hi,
I'm coming into town late April with other 5 married/engaged couples, we're in our late 20's/early 30's. Any dinner recommendations, mid -range expense?
Hoping to stay in the Old Montreal area. I've looked into:
Mechant Boeuf, Narcisse, Vieux-Port Steakhouse, Vauvert (in St.Paul Hotel).
Also thinking of La Coupole in Hotel Crystal.
Any help would be great!

    re la coupole: my father loves it but it was the worst lunch Ive ever had at that level of restaurant.. the beef was extremely overcooked and it took 45 mins for them to bring me a new plate and when they did the potatoes were fridge cold. I think you should go elsewhere.
    ps they gave my a free glass of wine but the meal was full price... i might have liked it if they had filled my glass with vodka lol

    Do for a lunch at dna its 20 dollars for the prix fixe ...less that la coupole and its absolutely fabulous- make sure you try the grilled octopus

      La Coupole is nice on your list but not in Old Mtl. Mechant Boeuf is good, but sometimes the lack of attention from your waiter can run a bad taste! I ate at Vauvert about a month ago, chose the risotto and regretted it, and I think they changed it off the menu, coz mine was BRUTAL! The Filet Mignon wasn't bad.. but hey, if you want a true steak, go to Gibby's (not a young crowd).

      Checkout Garde Manger, L'Orignal or my favorite in Old Montreal -> D.N.A Restaurant. Another good restaurant in Old Montreal West is Le Locale on William Street.
