Les Caprices des Nicolas

I've read one wonderful review of this restaurant, but can't find anything else. We are planning to visit in late August. Anyone with information. Also - Il Mulino?

    Les Caprices has excellent food and a huge wine list. Small, but elegant surroundings. A little pricely for the wine, but meal was great.

      Its a nice place for classic French food. Much quieter than many places (L'express, which gets its noise naturally, or Globe, with the music levels a little high to enjoy conversation.) Less of a "Montreal feel" to me than other places. What about the review hooked you?

        thanks for the comment. Review said the service was excellent, food terrific and ambiance very pleasant/formal a bit. We are going with older relatives from Montreal who love food, but would be uncomfortable with places that are too noisy, too trendy, too much vertical food . . . still know when something is well-prepared. Want to be well taken care of. What do you think?

          I think for those criteria you're doing pretty well. The alternative that jumps to mind is Les Halles, but its very expensive, and I don't know anyone who has been.
