Nous avons trouvé un cheveux dans l’assiette. Dommage ravioles de homard sur épicées ce qui n’a pas permis d’apprécier la qualité du plat. Œuf à la truffe qui a diminué l’équilibre des saveurs alors que l’émulsion et les légumes seuls étaient excellents. Dommage la Morue noire était semble-t-il trop cuite. Personnel trop présent. Service effectué par tous 5 serveurs au cours du repas.
Quantité dans l’assiette très bonne.
Excellent conseil vin.
Menu dégustation très raisonnable niveau prix.

The food is very good. While the wines are very good, it would be helpful to have a bit more selection of wines between $50-100.

There for a business lunch. Service was courteous but expeditive, we had our appetizers in front of us and yet no one had asked if we wanted wine. Food was very good, however the concensus around the table was that the portions were quite small. After we left everyone mentioned they were still hungry.

Food is delicious but minimalist portions. Avoid if you are really hungry!

Overall good experience, unsure if will return though.

Le repas table d'hôte indique 30$ sur leur site mais sur place est 35$. Mets goûteux mais petite portion. Prix du verre au vin maison 17$, mais rempli que le fonds. Marco est un peu trop froid dans son approche.

Deuxième visite. L’œuf en entrée n’est aussi spectaculaire que le première fois mais l’émulsion de cèpes est toujours aussi renversante. Erreur sur la commande qui m’a valu un plat supplémentaire pour patienter mais j’ai quand même mangé après mes convives. Les pommes de la tarte Tatin ne sont pas assez caramélisées à mon goût et la croûte de pâte feuilletée manque de caractère. La tarte Tatin de mon mari est bien meilleure.

As is ever the case at this wonderful restaurant the attention to detail is impressive. The speaker is hidden in a wall alcove, the hand soap isn’t some commercial product, and we haven’t even spoken about the beautiful and delicious food and drink. We almost never take photos of our food but we make an exception for Sophie’s delicacies. Well-curated wine list with options for most budgets. We will continue to choose Chez Sophie over other places for the warm reception and high standards throughout this establishment.

This is a wonderful, cozy little neighborhood restaurant. The menu is diverse and offers enough for everyone. Food is exceptional, every bite was delicious. The only disappointment was the dessert I was lookin forward to from the Opentable menu was not available, but the substitute might have been even better, so all good. Our waiter's service was impeccable - he seemed to know when to show up and when to leave us alone. We chose the tasting menu, and had a wonderful 4 course meal!

I've been to Chez Sophie for lunch and dinner and both experiences were wonderful. Service is very welcoming. I don't speak French yet the wait staff were very accommodating and explained food and wine menu in English. Plating is modern and inventive and flavors are on point. The beef bourguignon, perfect egg, and miso cod were particularly memorable dishes. I highly recommend this restaurant for casual gatherings as well as special occasions.

A beautiful meal to celebrate our first anniversary! We returned to Montreal because we got engaged in the city in 2015. We didn't do a tasting menu the first time we visited the city, so we returned to go all out, and Chez Sophie didn't disappoint in the least!

A casual atmosphere, caring and attentive staff, and a delicious menu that is both classic and inspired. The wines are superb, and I'd highly recommend doing the tasting with dinner. It is the perfect place to go if you're looking for a tasting menu that leaves you full in mind and body, and gives you the perfect blend of new and old.

Thank you!

A very good restaurant, though my expectations were slightly overhyped by previous reviews. At the time of our dinner, the ratings had this restaurant at 4.6 stars, one of the highest ratings in all of Montreal. I found several of the dishes, while good, did not quite meet the level implied by such a high rating. It was notable that the four-course tasting menu (CAD$80) and accompanying wine flight (CAD$45) were a good value. Total for four tasting menus, including two drinks and one wine flight was around CAD$500. I would happily eat here again.
