In need of date spots in the city for dinner &/or drinks

Hi Y'all!
I'm in need of good recos for dinner and/or drink spots in the city that would be great for a date (i didn't purpously rhyme there... lol). I have been on a few dates with this awesome guy and since we like going out to dinner, I'd like to have some suggestions up my sleeve for future dinner outings :)
I'm up for bring your own wine spots, from trendy to laid back (not too expensive though), Old Port to Mount Royal to The Village.
Any recommendations??

  1. I'd get a drink at the "Suite 701" (at the hotel place d'armes), and after that, either walk a little bit towards DNA or maybe Graziella, or "Le Club Chasse et Peche", or stay in the hotel to their "Aix" restaurant.


    Get a drink @ Barmacie (Laurier St.) and head to "Cuisine/D├ępendance" (St-Laurent blvd) or maybe go directly to "BU" for wine and little finger food and some simple dishes)

      chasse et peche or dna for dinner dont fit into the 'not too expensive' category i wouldnt say...

    2. For tapas and great wine try Pullman's on Parc corner Sherbrooke.
      There's also L'Assommoir on Bernard or in the old port that has amazing drinks and great ceviche, the only thing is that it can get pretty loud.

        Another tapas restaurant called Casa Tapas on Rachel is great for a date too - casual and mid-priced.

            i've had a recommendation from a friend to go to casa tapas and with this as both of your suggestions, i will definitely check it out! thx panpam & kpaxonite :D

      2. le lab could work.. it's usually not TOO loud and the drinks are amazing, and there is no better way to make a date more memorable than playing jenga :p

          Le lab is a fun place to take a date. It's fun to try the different drinks and comment on them. The few times i've been there on Fridays it has either been quite calm or moderately busy but i didn't find the crowd to be too loud. Sometimes the music is a bit loud but no more so than any typical bar.
