Dinner: Monday to Saturday: 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Also on St-Maurice Street
Music was inappropriate. The techno/club music detracted from the experience. We had burrata as a first course. It was very close to starting to ‘sour’ and go off. The veal chop for our main was over-salted and to be honest, a bit gross. Maybe we made poor choices but we probably won’t be back
Unfortunately this second visit was not up to our expectations. The service between the primi, secondi and on to the main meal was very long. We later found out that they were catering to a very large group. The food was at best lukewarm and in fact portions of the vegetables were served cold. The Tuna steak dish was not eatable. Too bad, I liked this place. Time to move on.
Food is as excellent. Service very good. The entre took a while to arrive but was otherwise very good
A mon avis, Graziella est le meilleur restaurant de Montréal offrant une cuisine italienne authentique; service courtois, discret et efficace; confort et chaleur; et bien sûr une addition qui reflète tout cela!
Très belle soirée,présentation raffinée,nourriture de grande qualité,sauce remarquable,portions légèrement petites,une valeur sûre.
We sat at the bar and the service was pleasant, but uneven, much like the food. The carpaccio app was excellent and the Tuna crude special was just average. The gnocchi was ok and the lobster pasta ok to better than ok. A minor point, the bread/bread sticks were stale at best.
The service was efficient and the ambiance was nice. Unfortunately it just wasn’t a great overall dining experience. Perhaps an off night.
I want to recommend going as we heard multiple great reviews and there were some really nice moments. I think there may be better Italian options in Montreal, but again this may have been an off night and worth a try as the people and service are definitely trying to make it a good experience. It just didn’t work out tonight. I hope/think this was the exception.
Excellent food, ambiance, waitstaff! Definitely would recommend this restaurant.
L’entrée était excellente (9/10), fleur de courge farcie au ricotta. Le premier plat pâte à la courge sauce aux truffes (10/10). Le serveur nous a suggéré de partager ces 2 plats, excellente idée. La suite veau de lait beaucoup trop dur. Mon épouse a pris la pintade. Elle était bonne mais pas au niveau d’un restaurant comme ça. Nous avons donc laissé faire le dessert. La prochaine fois, seulement des pâtes.
Graziella made fantastic pasta. The pesto pasta was superb. The beef carpaccio was very tasty as was the avocado salad. The lamb special and the veal chop had wonderful flavor. The restaurant was beautiful and quiet. We could hear ourselves talk. We were too full to have dessert.
Un restaurant haut de gamme, qui vaut amplement un détour supplémentaire dans le portefeuille...
My partner and I went to Graziella for a late night dinner around 9:30pm on a weekday. Despite not being a set option, we asked our server if a tasting menu would be possible and he happily complied with our request. If it were a busier night, perhaps this would not be possible, but we were so grateful for the experience! Every dish served was beautifully presented and each bite was better than the next. We had scallops, octopus, pasta, lamb and cornish hen. For dessert, we were serve mini panacotta and a hazelnut chocolate dessert which were both sublime. To drink, we enjoyed the Nord as well as their signature ‘Graziella cafe’ and both were spectacular. Overall, this was an amazing experience and a restaurant we would highly recommend.
Dining at Graziella was an unforgettable experience. The waiter was knowledgeable about the extensive wine menu choices, and recommended something other than what we had originally chosen, and we were appreciative of his suggestion. The food was fresh, beautiful, and exquisitely prepared. Again, our waiter made suggestions that we happily agreed to, and we were pleasantly surprised. My husband of 31 years and I have dined all around the world, and this restaurant, on the edge of "Old Montreal", is now one of our top ten favorites. We are planning another trip to Montreal and this will be one of the highlights of trip!!!
The service was great from the minute we walked in the door. The space is light and airy, with very talk ceilings. It just feels elegant. The food itself could not be beat. Both my wife and I had the special appetizer (fried squash blossoms) and I could have just eaten plate after plate of those. Then we each had pasta and dessert, with a nice dry Sicilian white wine. A very special and delicious meal.
Excellent restaurant,bel accueil.bon service.cuisine raffinée.
Couples night out.
We had an amazing experience with amazing wine suggestions from Gérard (in particular the Marsala with cheese after dinner - a discovery for us). The menu is structured around a 3 course Italian meal. I recommend that you stick to 2 courses unless you have a serious appetite. The service was first rate, attentive, professional, discrete, and unhurried. The dinner came with a hefty price tag but this is one occasion where the experience was definitely worth it.
What an amazing restaurant! Everything was perfect. The food is absolutely delicious and very creative. The ambiance is also well thought of with just the right amount of lighting soothing to the eye.
Extensive wine list and the staff was very well versed on the choices and recommendations. Pedro, our server was perfect.
We highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be going back. The only draw back is finding parking. Please make sure to give you a bit of head time and expect to walk a little.
Amazing place amazing chef and team !
Food is just too delicious, fresh and créative
What a disappointment. We had heard great things about Graziella but that wasn't meant to be in our case. The service was absolutely terrible with numerous mistakes and our main dishes arriving 20 minutes apart. Supposedly there was an issue with my lamb dish and I was only notified after my girlfriend's dish was served. I was asked to pick something else, which I did, only to be told 15 minutes later that my original dish was on it's way.
By that point any other restaurant would have apologized. That didn't happen as we were pointedly ignored for the rest of the dinner.
The food was passable in terms of Italian fare but far too expensive for it's quality and presentation. This feels like more of a tourist trap than an authentic "Montreal" restaurant.
Our dining experience at Graziella was horrendous - beyond disappointing.
Even though we were dressed extremely well and speak fluent French, we were seated in an extremely cramped and unappealing area of the restaurant, sandwiched between American tourists. Noticing that there were empty tables in the more attractive dining room area, we requested to move - especially because it was hot where they stuck us - right across from the kitchen (the restaurant is not air-conditioned). We were told that the tables were "not available." The tables remained empty the entire time we were there.
We ordered and waited more than 45 minutes for the appetizer - a squash blossom with cheese. After waiting for such a long time, we were shocked to receive a portion that was so tiny - two bites at the most. It was a joke. We then asked how long the delay would be for the entree - and our server indicated that it probably would not be as long but he did not know for sure. It was at this point that we decided to leave.
The manager was very distressed that we were leaving, and he offered to move us to another table. We told him (extremely politely) that the service was unacceptable, where they stuck us was inexplicable, and that another extreme delay for the entree would be unacceptable. Instead of being appropriately apologetic and acknowledging the issues we raised (I am not at all exaggerating) he was defensive and unpleasant. I might also add that we were not even comped the water we paid for.
We travel a lot and dine all over the world. We are polite and appropriate. We are accustomed to dining at upscale restaurants when we travel because we live in San Francisco and New York and are spoiled and used to eating great food. We intentionally choose select restaurants but we are not impossible to please and we are always respectful. This restaurant was a huge rip-off, with horrible service and a portion size that they should be ashamed of given the price of their food.
A little noisy. Tables small and close, no tablecloths in the modern style. Creative cuisine not too bad. Service good. Nice cheese offering at the end.
Our waiter was amazing, explained things so well but efficiently as well. really great recommendations for food and portion.
restaurant setting is made so the noise level is amazing. the scallops, octopus and gnocchi were to die for.
Only small little disappointment: the truffle pasta.. didn't taste like truffles at all! truffle usually has a very strong taste and smell and I couldn't feel it at all. I'm sure they would've replaced it if I had asked since the service was outstanding.
I would go back anytime!
Exceptional dining. Service was impeccable. So was the food.
Best dinner out we have had in Montreal is 10 years in old town area.
Nous avons aimé le service courtois, l’ambiance, le décor et la nourriture. Comme entrée, j’ai opté pour les pétoncles qui étaient succulentes tout comme les gnocchis comme plat principal. Un resto italien qui est parmi les meilleurs en ville!
Quality of food outstanding. Quiet conversations very appreciated. Large list of wines.
An amazing gastronomic and service experience in Montreal. Outstanding sommelier, finely tuned culinary and wine pairings, and warm attention to visitors experience make this place a rare gem. Wow!
Repas exceptionnel, service professionnel, ambiance haute gamme
Très bel accueil tout au long de l'aventure! Repas absolument délicieux...
Pure cuisine italienne comme à Firenze one of the best Italiano resto in MTL la viande est juste parfaite là-bas et l endroit est chic
The osso bucco was one of the best dishes I have ever had. The gnocchi was superb. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. We had a wonderful evening.
Small menu and high prices, the relation price/quality is not adequate....
Exceptional food served by exquisite servers. Fantastic wine list and knowledgable staff guarantee an amazing meal.
One of the best lunch menus in the city. The veal stuffed pasta in a Veal and pea sauce was so good I have gone back 3 times. That should always be on the menu. Cheers
Excellent restaurent !! Ordered the special ‘pasta with lobster’ it was divine and worth every cent of $44.00 😇😇 , Will be going back for sure, Merci ! Sylvie
Fantastic pro attentive friendly service with amazingly delicious food.
service de classe, menu créatif et toujours excellent qui honore nos papilles gustatives, décor relaxant qui dégage une énergie positive...... Bravo à la chef Graziella et son équipe qui maintient la qualité de ce restaurant hors pair
La qualité des aliments se démarque. Cuisine dans la tradition italienne, mais revisitée. Nous y retournerons.
Service was impeccable. Food was incredible. I had asked for a nice quiet table for an important dinner meeting and they did not disappoint. They were attentive throughout the whole dining experience. Will definitely go back. Thank you so much.
Excellent service et excellente nourriture dans un décor sublime. On s'y sent bien et on y mange bien.
