Marriage proposal recommendations
I will be in Montreal Sept 9 - 12 and I plan on proposing to my girlfriend. I am considering a restaurant and figured this would be the place to get some great suggestions. I will be staying in old Montreal and would love a fine dining romantic restaurant.
If you could recommend a restaurant and best day of the week. I can do it on a Thursday or Friday. I am sure the restaurants get busier as the weekend approaches. If you know of any additional accommodations a restaurant can make please be sure to mention them. i.e. more private room, package, music etc..
We are open to various types of food.
Hehe look who's come from TA's board. Good for you, this is a great site i'm sure the others will have loads of great suggestions =D
+1 for Club Chasse et Pêche. It's one of the best restaurants in Montreal. Reservations are a MUST.
DNA might be great too, the decor is beautiful and modern and the service is excellent. Go early if you want it to be quieter. Here, found a detailed review from some time back:
Perhaps a postprandial popping of the question while being whisked through the old town in a horse-drawn caleche. For this I would propose (!) a flask of cognac and a couple of snifters or, if you can find a way to hide them, a split of champagne and flutes.
I confess I was going to do exactly this myself some 13 years ago, but found myself unable to find a caleche after dinner - I have no idea how we found ourselves on the only caleche-free summer evening in the history of Old Montreal...
I had to improvise with a proposal on the waterfront. Fortunately the answer to the question was the one I had hoped for. All’s well that ends well.
re: erich wiess
erich, I also fear I will not be able to get a caleche at the perfect time. I am considering reserving one prior for an increased fee. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. I think I am going to dine at Club Chasse et Peche.
Hows the chefs table at DNA and europea? Can either be romantic?
How about a nice romantic restaurant for lunch? I would like to make the entire day as romantic as possible.
