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!

Cheers!

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! 😜

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
