Good food but quite overpriced for pasta and simple appetizers which you could make at home for a fraction of the cost.

we came here for valentine’s day dinner, overall the food was very good but we had to wait over an hour for dessert which was very unacceptable especially because everyone around us was being served before us and we were there before them. we ended up being there for 3 hours because the service was so slow

Carlo was excellent. It was a bit busy unfortunatley, as it was Valentine's day. We will go again when in town, but not on such a busy night.

A total surprise from an ambiance point of view and such a great service, the personnel was very sociable and helpful. We were totally satisfied with the food and the waiter quite helpful in choosing the wine.
An absolute must.

service was impeccable , the host Lavi was most gracious and welcoming. the table d'hote for lunch had great choices and the argentian beef and sea bass we ordered were fresh , tasty and nicely presented. and the price of $27 is unbeatable. you must taste the home made made tarallis that come with the bread, so delicious that i had to take some home!!

Celebrated a friend’s birthday at Da Vinci and received the Royal treatment from Lavi and his team. Lavi was very hospitable and took his time to answer all of our menu questions. Our selections were very tasty and flavourful and we especially enjoyed the wine choice that Lavi recommended. This all made for a very memorable and enjoyable experience. Thanks for making our evening that much better Lavi!

Mon conjoint et moi avons fait une intoxication alimentaire. Tout était très bon au goût, mais nous avons partagé tous les plats et difficiles d’identifier le mets problématique. Mais chose certaine, nous avons tous les deux été intoxiqués. Début du service, lors de l’apéro en anglais, même si nous communiquions en français ce qui a déplus à mon conjoint. Nous avons finalement été attirés à un serveur francophone.

Had an amazing special celebration meal here, with our host Lavi taking us on a culinary journey on and off menu. The food here is very, very good, but really sets this place apart from the rest is the service. Lavi and his team made our group of four feel special from the moment we walked in, until the moment we left some four hours (and a few bottles of wine) later. There are many outstanding restaurants in Montreal, but this one is truly special for its ambience and service. Located in a beautiful and interesting building which also adds to the charm. We will be back!

Although the food was excellent and the service impeccable I can not recommend this restaurant as there was absolutely no ambience at all. We had a reservation for 6:45 on a Friday and even by the time we left at 8:30 there were only 4 tables occupied and extremely dull. I’m not looking for a noisy exciting restaurant but a little low music in the background may add a little something. Maybe it was because of the time of year.

Repeated great experiences here. The lead server doted on us all night and we felt like family from the moment we walked in until the grappa right before we left. Varied wine list the seemed to have something for everyone. Beautiful interior just matches the warmth of the staff. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Lavi (manager) and Carlo (waiter), my wife and I had yet another wonderful experience at Da Vinci this weekend. This restaurant never fails to delight us - with the great food, the finely tuned interplay of the staff, and the truly caring service at the table. There are a lot of great restaurants in Montreal where the food is outstanding, but fewer and fewer have the level of elegance and professionalism that used to be the standard in fine dining; Da Vinci does not skimp on this. If you're looking for a "special occasion" restaurant, or simply a place where you'll be treated with great care and appreciation, you can't go wrong here. Oh - and the food is amazing, too.

This restaurant was poor from beginning to end. Upstairs was frigid cold, service was terrible, and the food was average for the price. Food took 45 minutes to arrive from the time ordered. Don’t waste your hard earned money

Thought portions could be a little bigger. Doesn't have to be much bigger but found all just a bit on the smaller side so would have ordered differently next time

Very romantic atmosphere. Service was outstanding. Food was excellent. I had a great rack of lamb (seven good sized ribs). My wife had a salad to start and pasta with an anchovy and olive oil sauce and clams in shell. I had the same as an appetizer and we both thought they were very good but a little dry. Easily solved by the waiter by adding a touch of olive oil. All in all, a great evening and can't wait to return.

One of my favourite restaurants in the world. It is hard to overstate how good the kitchen, the food and the service are here. We've been back on every visit to Montreal, and book months in advance. Totally recommend.

Carlos is amazing. Ask for him!

The restaurant was in a nice location, and had a nice ambiance but the food was expensive and mediocre. I would much rather go to chinatown or cote des neiges area and have a nice filling, tasty meal.

I ordered the lobster and shrimp and it was just ok. Did not taste bad, but nothing to recommend. My wife ordered a lamb pasta and that was also just sustenance. Not anything special unfortunately.

Perhaps this restaurant is catered to a richer clientele. The people at the restaurant certainly seemed like a particular bunch.

If you would like to pay $40/plate, still feel hungry and be surrounded by rich snooty people I highly recommend. The service was fantastic though so I do appreciate the staff.
