    We had such a hard time choosing menu items, but it became obvious right away that it doesn't really matter - there are no losers here and everything is amazing! The marinated mussels were definitely the standout. The service was warm and welcoming, the ambience cozy and congenial.

    Bon restaurant, bonne atmosphère, service impeccable et amical. Par contre un des plats dégusté était manqué à mon avis. La tartelette de ris de veau ne goutait que la sauce Buffalo. Beaucoup trop relevé. On n'y goutait que la sauce. Sans quoi les autres plats étaient succulents.

    The entire evening was everything I was expecting and more. We sat at bar and really enjoyed the Chefs menu. All the staff we dealt with including the bartender were very knowledgeable of what was being put in front of us. And everyone was very attentive to our needs and what we thought of each dish. The place was packed and we didn’t feel pressured at all to get thru our dinner. Would not hesitate to try and get in there again on our next trip to Montreal.

    The food was delicious. We started with the chicken liver mousse, which had nice ingredients and complex flavors and was my favorite part of the meal. I had the char that was served on a bed of potatoes and “yum yums” which are pickles. I didn’t care for the layer of pickles and pushed them aside, but the sauce was delicious and the fish was cooked perfectly. My friend enjoyed her sea scallops. We liked our wine choices as well. They seemed to have lost our order because it took over an hour for our entrees to be served when fish and sea scallops cook quickly. People who were seated after us received their entrees of meat well before us. It would have been nice if the delay in service would have been acknowledged in some way. It’s a small restaurant and we were seated at the bar. The bartender was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. Thank you.

    I've been to Garde Manger before and it was incredible. I went last Thursday, April 11, 2024 bringing family I haven't seen in years excepting an amazing culinary experience. Upon arrival the music was blasting as if we were in a night club, could barely even talk to each other at the table. 2nd, we ordered the chef selection at 150$. The seafood platter came first, these were the smallest oyster I've seen served in a restaurant. We were in complete shock considering GM is specialized in seafood. We then got served smoked olives that resembled what you would get at a hotel bar and artic char with crackers broken on the top. The appetizers were, carpaccio (Decent and tasty), a simple salad (not acceptable), and the octopus (The portion was barely sharable for 3 people). At this point we had to ask for bread to be served at the table, that's never a good sign! The manager then passed by to ask how it was going (A young guy). We were honest about the quality and what we were expecting from Chuck's kitchen. He didn't offer us anything and had very poor customer relationship skills, a complete rookie. He could have simply offered some free shots, as simple as that. At this point, this killed the entire dining vibe and were served the mains, the scallops were the good, the lamb was over cooked and super chewy. Overall, this experience was embarrassing for me, loud & cheesy 70s-80s hits (I speak loud and no one could barely hear me), and 90% of the dishes served were simply not to standard at all. I highly respect Chuck as a Chef and if he were there I don't think this would have happened. Management was simply horrible and unable to re-mediate the situation in any way nor offered to provide any incentives to make good... Lastly, the bill, for 3 people this ran me over 850$ including tip. That's insane... I don't mind spending money when you know it's quality but this was totally mediocre and left me with a sour taste. Be aware!

    We came in to celebrate my husband's birthday. Oysters and crab legs were outstanding, scallops and swordfish for mains were superb, and the dessert was a coffee cake topped with ice-scream- divine. Service was lovely, ambience was cozy and romantic! Overall a great spot for dinner in Montreal.

    Service was impeccable. We sat at the bar - the bartender (David) was knowledgeable, friendly, excellent. He seemed too be the busiest person in the restaurant, yet always had a moment to check on us - I have no complaints - our meal was superb - although I might say the desert was "ordinary" while our entree and main courses were superb - I had the swordfish, my wife the black cod. A bit pricey, yet, the ambience, service and flavourful meal give reason for this.

    I’ve been wanting to go here for a few years and it did not disappoint. We covered good ground on the menu: cocktails, a few appetizers to share, mains and a bottle of wine then cappuccinos with dessert. Every single dish brought to the table exceeded expectations. We enjoyed the explanations and descriptions from very courteous and knowledgeable staff who demonstrated great attention throughout the night. Definitely an experience to remember. Worth the trip for us coming in from Ottawa.

    This is simply one of the best restaurants in Montreal. The menu is broad but leans heavily towards fish and seafood. That said my table enjoyed the beef carpaccio and a lamb shoulder along with oysters, muscles, shrimp and a number of other wonderful dishes that were part of the chef's menu. Do keep in mind that at Garde Manger, that if you opt for the chef's menu as we did there will be a lot of food; this isn't a series of small bites. Portions are generous but you will find yourself trying not to leave the tiniest morsel behind.
