Three friends and I visited for the first time and did the chef's menu and can honestly say this was one the best meals I've ever had. From the seafood platter at the start to the dessert at the end each course was amazing and would highly recommend this restaurant. If you're visiting Montreal Garde Manger is must!
This was our second time here and it will not be our last! Best restaurant in Montreal hands down. This is the type of place where you can get fine dining food in a casual and fun atmosphere. The food is seasonal, well prepared, and delicious. Great value for the price; my advice is to take your time, involve the wait staff (which are always eager and enthusiastic to help) and enjoy!
We also love the music; everything from 90’s /2000’s alternative to Motown so it makes it fun to relax and reminisce Thank you for making my wife’s 40th birthday a blast!
Amazing food amazing place. Quality and taste are on point.
The food and Service are always Next Level! There is always something fabulous on the menu and the atmosphere is cozy.
Amazing as always - a treaty night out but reliable and consistent! Thank you!
Exceptional. Above and beyond in service and cuisine.
Valentines Day. We sat at the back bar and had a fantastic experience with the two lads serving us (thanks guys). From oysters, tuna and razor clams to our delicious duck and monkfish, this place knows how to keep you coming back. It’s our 3rd trip from Toronto to the restaurant and we will be back time and time again. One of my absolute favourite spots! Only thing that could have been better....more tequila! 😜
Everything was stunning, food and service was amazing!
The service and food was amazing, best meal I have had in a long time!
We were privileged to have a fabulous dinner at Garde Manger on our most recent trip to Montreal. We found the restaurant to be inviting in decor with our host and servers incredibly welcoming. The ambiance speaks of people enjoying a pleasant evening (a bit loud on our visit only because we were adjacent to a table of 14). Though seafood is a specialty, we are not so inclined and deferred instead to the meat-based Chef's Choice Tasting Menu of Appetizers and Entrees. We were delighted to have Kyle, our very knowledgeable and helpful server, make excellent selections for us in all categories, including a marvelous wine that paired perfectly with our meal. Our Appetizers included the foie gras mousse, sauteed pork belly, and burrata....all of which were divine!! Our Entrees included duck breast, roasted root vegetables, and braised pork loin....all were insanely delicious!! Lastly, we threw caution to the wind and allowed our server to select ice cream filled profiteroles and a totally decadent chocolate cake with cream for a sensational and memorable finish! Our experience is best summed up in my husband's words, "this compares favorably to the best meal I've ever been served!" Special thanks to Kyle and to the entire staff of Garde Manger!
My server, Steven, was great. He was very attentive and made great wine & food suggestions.
Merci pour votre excellent service et qualité des vins et nourriture...
Loved it, only sad part we didn't get to see Chuck, my wife was really looking forward to that, lol
The food was outstanding. We opted to share four appetizers and two entrees between 3 people. The standouts included the brussel sprouts and the foie gras. The drinks that were recommended by the server didn’t meet expectations and the beer we got wasn’t what we asked for. Didn’t matter much but for the price everything should be perfect and this was the only thing that fell short of perfection.
They didn’t offer coffee or tea. We had to ask . Other than that the staff were very attentive and friendly. They know their dishes. It was wonderful and delicious. A very unique experience
Great interesting food and excellent service. A gem!
I can now take this item off my bucket list. From the time we arrived to the time we left everything was exceptional. I highly recommend the tasting menu. A great array of diverse foods. One warning - come hungry. The portions are very generous. Food was amazing. Such a variety of different flavours that explode in your mouth.
Amazing food, and fantastic service would highly recommend!
Amazing food, wine and service. One of the best table in Montréal. Every dish is a delight for your eyes and your taste buds. The food and wine pairing was exceptionnal. Thanks to Simone and Alex, you guys were great.
Excellent service, super belle expérience, à revenir absolument.
It's my favourite restaurant in Montreal, quite pricey but always an amazing experience.
Excellent food with superior service. A little expensive but worth it for a special experience. We were lucky to have Chuck in the house, and he stopped by to say hello, a really nice guy!
Awesome inventive beautifully crafted and presented dishes. Great vibe, with friendly professional staff. Wine list and wine suggestions well thought out.
Best advice save the $80 to $100 you would spend for dinner for two at a chain restaurant and spend the extra $50 -$60 to have amazing , flavourful dishes. You can taste the ingredients are fresh and house-made. Definitely recommend to anyone. Try the endive salad. Best salad I ever had. Never been to a restaurant of this kind before and the experience will make me reconsider spending for a meal at a chain restaurant again. Had absolutely no complaints.
We have dined at Garde Manger on a few occasions and have always had excellent service and food.
We aim to dine there whenever we are in Montreal. We recommend it to anyone we know who is travelling there.
Best meal I have had in a long time. Got the Chef menu and it was incredible from start to finish.
J’etais Avec mon épouse et trois amis et nous étions unanimes pour dire à la fin du repas que ce fut l’une de nos meilleures expériences gastronomiques à vie. La qualité des ingrédients , leur fraîcheur et la simplicité de la présentation nous ont conquis. Le menu dégustation que nous avons choisis était fabuleux. Le service professionnel et sympathique de Cyndy a ajouté à l’ensemble de l’expérience. Soirée mémorable! Alain P.
The most amazing meal was served by an attentive staff that really know about the food and wine they are serving. The restaurant has a great atmosphere to dine with friends or colleagues. We were 5 colleagues and everyone absolutely loved the experience.
Best meal during our stay in Montreal. Looking forward to going back on our next visit. Excellent service!
We love Garde Manger. Expensive but always great service, delicious and educational.
Brought some European visitors for dinner and had a blast!
Food is always a tantalizing new experience for your taste buds! Love it!
The entire experience was great, food, atmosphere and service were all fun. The menu was a little overwhelming, especially the chef’s table, in that it was difficult to understand what you were getting. There was simply too much food, although all delicious. Slightly smaller quantity with a price reduction would be great for all.
We definitely had a fun time and gastronomic experience. Well done!!
This was hands down one of the best dining experiences of my life. We decided to do the Chef’s menu and we were not disappointed. Every course was absolutely delicious, from the razor clams to the orecchiette. The service was exceptional. Our server, Nick, even took the time to write down some suggestions of places to go while we were in Montreal. I can’t wait to get back to Montreal and dine here again.
One of our “must do’s” when visiting Montreal. Go in with an open mind and try things that may not typically be your go to. This spot is changing my “rural” husband into a foodie.
The menu is filled with delicious dishes and we ate the best dessert we’ve ever had. The coffee cake and malt ice cream was unbelievable!! 10/10 would recommend.
Amazing food and quality ingredients. Definitely suggest this if you are in vieux port. The seafood is delicious and a ton of variety. Their burrata was also one of the best I’ve tried. We had the gnocchi and the steak as well— both very well seasoned and fresh.
Super good !
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Montreal. Warm, unpretentious ambience, good music, very knowledgeable and helpful staff and then, of course, excellent food. It was our most expensive meal in Montreal but it was worth it.
