For several years now we have been going to Da Vinci for lunch each time we are in Montreal on our twice yearly, week and a half long stays. The quality and authenticity of the cuisine is consistently at the high level that we have known and come to expect over years of travel to Italy. This is our one Italian restaurant in Montreal. Impeccable service on this visit from Lavi and the team. Do not hesitate to go. You will not be disappointed. More

We were excited to come here. We met our waiter, Will, we were seated in a dark room. The experience was extraordinary. Our waiter was GREAT and attentive and instructed us well such that things went smoothly. Unfortunately the table next to us had a flashing cell phone or something and THEY KNEW and did nothing about it. Therefore we could see the light to their feet and that was SO rude of them to ruin other's experience. Only after 30 minutes (I think?) did the flashing stop. Most of the waiters were blind so could not see that this was ruining other people's experiences. The front already told people to turn off anything that produces light as well so I don't know what else more could they do. Either way, food was good, and it was an experience. We really appreciated our waiter. More

Good low calorie options for lunch except they try to get you with a crazy dessert cart at the end. Not fair! Nice airy dining room with high ceiling so you can have lunch or breakfast without too much direct noise. Good natural light too and ambiance is modern but not cold. Food is well executed and not too pretentious. I really like the breakfast! A step above standard hotel breakfast and I LOVE the press coffee. More

Food was excellent! Our group of friends tried different things and we were all very happy with our choices. Their Rockefeller Oyster is very good despite being a little pricey on regular days (we had the Mtl a Table menu and prices). Also, the location is great, the place is beautiful and the service was impeccable! It is quite refreshing to see that some people still care about providing outstanding service. La Société is definitely a place to try or to add to your regular date spots! ***** More

If you want to taste something different from the sauces and rich French food in Montreal this is a good alternative. Down home ribs, steak with a strong American influence dominate the menus. Lots of wood makes for an attractive interior. This is not a high end, fine dining establishment but a fun and comfortable place for a change of pace. More

For almost 30 years, our customers have been coming from all over the world to enjoy Montreal’s typical smoked meat at Brisket Montréal, which is part of any Montrealers’ DNA. Even if Brisket is a place you can’t miss in Montreal, its secret does not simply lie in the meat’s incomparable flavours. Its warm atmosphere allows you to share an affordable meal with family and friends in the heart of Montreal. For all these reasons, Briskets has become an essential destination in Old Montreal.More

I love the intimate cafe. I was told by the owner that the open table reservations were only for the reserved rooms. That is too bad for me. Since there are few tables for the public cafe area. I would have definitely used it only for the cafe. I am not sure if I would go for a reserved room via opentable when they change it over unfortunately. It wouldn't be for me. The collection of teas and lattes are delicious! Highly recommended! More
