De cet amour, sont nés les restaurants Chez Sophie et Toto au Liban, de véritables succès!
C’est en 2013 que Sophie decida de poser ses valises là où tout a commencé afin d’offrir aux MTL.

GREAT WINE EXPERIENCE WITH THE WINE ACCORD AND DEGUSTATION MENU. skip THE FANCY DRINK AND ORDER A FINE WINE BOTTLE, REPEAT AT THE END OF THE MEAL WITH A CHEESE PLATE. NOT MUCH VEGGIES IN THE PLATE BUT IT SUIT ME PERFECTLY. DESSERT ARE NOT BAD EITHER

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.

Excellent food and service. Fifth time there...always outstanding. They can also serve a group of twenty seamlessly, something I hosted with my Board of Directors...and the whole menu was available unlike many restaurants that try to trim the menu availability! Also, very good selection of wines at reasonable prices.

The food was really exceptional! Although we were 15 minutes late, the staff was very polite and made things go very smoothly. My only remark would be that the waiting time between the appetisers and the main course was too long.
The desert made up for that little inconvenience!

Service is outstanding. Did the tasting menu where you get to choose 1 starters, 2 main (half portion) and a dessert. Every bite was so enjoyable. I took the wine pairing as well and all wine pairings were very good. A great night!

AMAZING. One of the best meals we've had as a family in Montreal. Compared to the big names (Joe beef, toqué, Pied du Cochon, Damas, etc) Chez Sophie more than holds it own. The starters and mains are just superb. Words don't do this place justice. Every person at the table thought their meal was the best. The ravioli lobster bisque, the Black cod, the beef cheeks and the duck is what we had, and they were all out of this world delicious. Was a slow and great meal. It's expensive and worth every penny. For the price I would go back, over pay and leave happy.

Most of the food was very good and some of it was outstanding (sushi appetizer and the scallop main course). The crust of the perfect egg is too heavy (greasy) and overwhelms the other delicate flavours. The veal main course was good and the miso black cod was very good -- I was expecting to get blown away by most everything on the menu so I walked away thinking that we had a very good meal, but not outstanding. There are better restaurants charging similar prices that are better in the same neighbourhood.

Une des meilleures table de Montréal. Et merveilleusement tranquille, sans tape à l’œil et m’as-tu vu. Cette fois, les pétoncles au cari m’ont redonner le goût de découvrir de nouvelles saveurs. Comme à l’habitude, les accords avec vins étaient parfaits et les desserts surprenants, même pour moi qui n’ai pas la dent sucrée. Depuis des années, Chez Sophie est LE restaurant que je recommande aux gens qui aiment savourer ce qu’ils mangent et boivent.
