La chef Sophie Tabet, il y a environ dix ans, quitta Montréal pour la France afin d’y suivre des cours au prestigieux Institut Paul Bocuse. Elle travailla dans de nombreux restaurants étoilés en Europe tels que L’Astrance à Paris (3 étoiles Michelin) ou encore au Dal Pascatore en Italie (Relais & Château, 3 étoiles Michelin). En 2010, elle se voit décerner le prix du chef de l’avenir et du meilleur restaurant par l’Académie Internationale de la Gastronomie.
C’est lors de son passage en Italie qu’elle rencontra son mari, Marco Marangi, expert sommelier. Ayant à son tour cumulé plusieurs expériences en gastronomie,
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.

It's the change of season in Montreal, if you want to stay warm make sure to request a table far from the back door. They will open the door to go to the terrasse and even ask to keep it open as their ventilation isn't the best to cool down help with the kitchen.

Nous avons été déçus à plusieurs niveaux, nous avons opté pour le menu dégustation, mais qui s’est avéré être simplement une table d’hôte. La mise en bouche qui nous a été servi n’était pas la même que celle servie aux autres tables, en fait, nous avons l’impression que l’on nous a servi un restant d’entrée inscrite au menu, ce qui ne correspond pas à un menu dégustation. Nous avons également pris l’accord mets et vins, à notre grande surprise, on nous a servis chaque vins sans même nous les faire préalablement goûter. De plus, la quantité dans les verres variait à chaque service. Le bruit enterrait les informations transmises par le serveur. L’attitude du sommelier nous a laissé sentir que nous n’étions pas pris au sérieux pour un restaurant supposément réputé. D’ailleurs le fait qu’il passe une partie de la soirée assis à l’entrée à regarder son téléphone n’a pas fait bonne figure. Pour terminer, ayant fréquenté plusieurs grands restaurants, le prix de la facture ne représente pas l’expérience vécue.

Let me start by saying the service was perfect. I was never left wanting. From the moment we sat down our waiter was pleasant and attentive and anticipated anything we might need before we asked for it. Now the biggest issue. The food. Under seasoned across the board. I was shocked. It cost us a fortune and the food was completely bland. Now seasoning aside. Let’s say I just have a salty tastes. Fine. But dish by dish we were consistently disappointed by the flavour. They started us off with an amuse bouche that tasted like Campbells cream of asparagus. It wasn’t bad per se but it was also bland. Then the biggest gaff of the night the lobster ravioli. It was bland. Cold in the centre and the bisque had no lobster flavour. The chucks of lobster were rubbery and flavourless. Finally I had the beef tenderloin which was actually really great. The flavour was there but again could’ve used a bit of salt. My girlfriend found the same with her scallops. She said the dish needed something to set it off. More depth I guess. But I bet it just needed a small amount of salt to bring out the flavour. I don’t like salty foods. I have more of a sweet tooth. So me needing more salt here is what surprised me. I’m usually complaining about how salty the food is. This meal cost me an entire days work and meant to be a very special birthday celebration for my soon to be fiancé and this is what we got. Again the beef was great the service was great but damn these people need to taste more often during prep.

From the moment we (3) walked in we were greeted by the staff in a warm and friendly manner.
We sat in the back Terrace, well appointed with all the small touches that makes a difference.

From the amuse Bouche to the decadent dessert we had a wonderful evening.

Quinton’s eloquent description of the menu allowed us to refine our choice. Basically he helped us pick the right meal for what we wanted.

Highlights
Lobster ravioli
Pasta with truffle mushroom and asparagus
Beef tenderloin with short rib
Pain perdu

The wine recommendation from owner Mario was on point
And the STAR behind all of this is how lovely wife Sophie
The genius in the kitchen.

Went for an intimate birthday dinner on a Saturday evening. We chose the tasting menu with wine pairing, and were not disappointed. Every dish was interesting, well thought out, and perfectly executed. While we loved all of it, the uniqueness and skillfulness of the dessert really impressed us. The wine pairings were exciting and added extra depth to the meal. The service took the meal from being excellent to outstanding. We had Jean-François ("JF") as our server, and he was impeccable. I have not had such amazing service at any other restaurant in Montreal. Would absolutely recommend Chez Sophie to friends, and indeed we already have. We can't wait to go back to try some of the items on their à la carte menu.

Food was exquisite - everything was well presented, mouthwatering and tasted as good as it looks and even better.

The service is a bit cold, very formal and wasn't the fastest, but always done with style.
