Au petit extra

  • r

1690 Ontario St East. It was recommended by a friend, as a place for us to go during our first visit to Montreal. Have any of you been there recently? If so, let us know your opinion, please.

  1. i prefer l'Express on st. denis, sit at the bar and dine if u can't get a reservation. The waiters have great knowledge of wines and its a smaller yet very alive bistro.

    1. re: chanagirl

      The restaurant was okay. Despite being handled VERY roughly over the phone(we almost cancelled because of it), the food was decent. Good wine list, but it would be nice if they made the extra effort to handle those that may not read or speak French. Tourist money IS money regardless. A bit loud at times and the service was slow, overall it deserves the two star rating it has. We probably won't be going back given the number of truly great restaurants here.
