Service and food were excellent. I often ask for a beer to arrive with my meal, 99% of the time it either comes before or not at all. At La Verite when my meal arrived the waiter said and your beer is on the way and it arrived seconds later! A small point but much appreciated. All staff were pleasant and well informed.

Overall everything was fine but not outstanding this time around. Started with the foucaccia which was served at the table. It was served cold and too crispy. Ordered a dry vodka martini but unfortunately not exactly to my liking. As I mentioned, overall the food , as far as my plate was concerned, was fine but not really outstanding this time around. Service was acceptable.

This restaurant was recommended by friends for one item - the grilled octopus appetizer. For that alone, it was worth the visit. I've never had octopus taste so good. We made the reservation for our anniversary. The reservation was handled well. We were shown to a nice table. It was never clear, however, who was serving us. Several people came to the table at different times. It was a little confusing. I prefer to have a rapport with one person being the main server throughout the meal. It also led to us feeling rushed at certain times. Then, I had been hoping for a nice quiet ambience but, because of big groups, found the evening too loud. A nice romantic meal became us not talking much because we would otherwise have had to yell. No restaurant wants to say No to large groups, but this one needs to find a way to segregate the bigger groups or create a corner of quieter tables. This one is picky, but my bloody caesar was so spicy my lips and tongue were tingling and I needed bread before I could taste any food properly. Perhaps ask how spicy to make the bloody caesar. That said, the food was superb. My veal and my husband's steak were perfect. My espresso creme brule was divine, though the coffee was mediocre at best. The wine list is extensive and we appreciated the assistance in selecting one for our meal. Overall, a very nice experience and we will add it to our list for repeat visits.

The ambient and service was exceptional. The staff & waiter were exceptional with their service and very knowledgeable with the night specials and wine list. However the food was below par especially at the price they charge. I've been to most of the local high end Italian restaurants like the Il Fornetto where I brought out of town clients and family and the food does not even come close to the other restaurants I've been dinning for years. . I would definitely not go back or recommend La Verita to anyone that would ask me.

I’ve been to many restaurants all over, and this one is in my top 10. Amazing service, creative menu, beautiful decor and perfect execution every time I go.

I love that the waiters are professional and super knowledgeable of everything on/off the menu while also having a great sense of humour.

The menu always has great new options and every meal comes with fresh bread, focaccia, olives, dried tomatoes and soup/salad. Pro tip: ask for their homemade hot sauces

I hope to continue eating at this West Island gem for many years!

Very rare that I have a less than 5 star experience. Not sure what was up but some of the new staff were not up to par to what I have come to expect at La Verita. I have to ask - did they change ownership? My meal was great but the octopus entree (which is normally unparalleled) was only ok. The one female waitress was outstanding compared to the other staff.

Awesome Food and great service! We had grilled octopus, lobster ravioli , risotto and unbelievable sirloin steak that would satisfy even the most discerning of steak lovers. They brought over a little dessert to celebrate mu husbands 50th which was very nice too.
The atmosphere is great for date night and a group dinner. Its not too loud and the service is on the money. Would highly recommend!

Had as main course calf liver with sauté onions.
Replaced the vegetables for penne arabiata was too much sauce for my liking.

But overall was very tasty.
