A word from Accords
Un menu audacieux, une cave à vins unique, un décor original : la recette d’Accords, c’est aussi simple que cela!
Notre chef et nos sommeliers travaillent de concert à concevoir des accords mets-vins sur mesure. Mais ils prennent aussi un malin plaisir à élaborer des désaccords mets-vins qui vous étonneront. Voilà pour le concept, que nous sommes les seuls à proposer.
////////////
A distinctive menu, a unique wine cellar, an original decor: this is what Accords ("pairings" in English) is all about. Our chef and wine waiters work together to create imaginative food pairings, some of which are quite surprising. This is at the heart of Accords concept and no one else in town offers this experience.

    It was wonderful food when it got to us. The wait staff was not over whelmed by tons of people. The were 6 other parties for 2 staff. Forgotten orders and long waits for wine to be refilled because it had to still chill. The setting and food were good. Also kind if expensive for what we got. Great first date Resturant since you will have plenty of time to talk uninterrupted.

    The food was very food, but I think they are in the midst of an identity crisis. It is hard to figure out how to order. No insight into the wine pairings any longer. We enjoyed our experience here last year more.

    This restaurant is great if you feel in the mood for discoveries. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions about accord between food and wines. We choose to share 4 different type of dishes with a small glass of the recommended wine they selectionned for us. It was a very nice and interesting experience.We certainly will recommend it to friends!

    This was our second visit and we love this place. The sommelier is excellent and the food portion size is perfect (between an entrée and a main). I love this idea because two people can share 3 wonderful choices if they are really hungry - well priced too! We will definitely be back often and can't wait for the beautiful terrace to open. A real Montréal gem!

    Excellent menu spécial de la St-Valentin, avec accords mets-vins qui sort de l'ordinaire. Chaque plat comprenait des saveurs surprenantes et recherchées. Le cerf fut notre coup de coeur, mais nous avons adoré la pieuvre et l'agneau. Chaque vin d'accompagnement était une agréable surprise; ceux qui aiment sortir de leur zone de confort seront ravi! Le service a connu quelques ratées, mais rattrapées de main de maitre par notre serveuse, souriante, dynamique et attentionnée. Nous y retournerons sans aucun doute!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    C'était la troisième fois que je prenais un repas chez Les Accords, les deux premières expériences furent sublimes Par contre j'ai été déçu du menu imposé pour la st Valentin et surtout du choix des vins. Je laisse la chance au coureur mais les accords mets / vin n'étaient pas à la hauteur de ce restaurant. Peut être qu'à vouloir trop se démarquer et épater la galerie on se trompe totalement. Je retournerais car mes deux premières expériences ont été fantastiques. J'ai déjà hâte de regoûter le tartare de saumon qui ne faisait pas parti du menu st-Valentin.

  • Nice place + unexpected fixed menu
    foodie33
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    I reserved Les Accords for Valentine's day, they have an extensive collection of natural wines and the sommelier was knowledgeable and helpful throughout the night. The food was tasty but not very filling and the wine pairings that came with our menu were well done and provided a wide scope of taste pairings that made it an interesting food adventure. What was unexpected was the fixed menu on the night of - I had called and left an email asking if there would be one in the week previous to the date, so that I could prepare accordingly but received no answer. Eventually, I would like to go back and try their brunch and regular dining menu, but I'd appreciate a response to my inquiries or a note somewhere about a obligatory fixed menu.

    My husband and I cannot say enough about our New Years Dinner at Accords. The menu was a 5 course tasting with wine pairing and it was fabulous. The sommelier paired the menu perfectly. The staff were well informed and attentive without being overbearing. We were impressed that when we booked the evening through OpenTable that we requested a quiet, romantic table and to our delight we were right beside the fireplace. The attention to detail throughout the evening from food to service was remarkable. Will be spending New Years 2014 at Accords.

    Went to Accords between the holidays for a business lunch. The restaurant was very quiet, almost empty. The service was adequate, but a little slow with the wine service, strange for a wine bar. The food was small in portion and the taste was ordinary at best.

    We started with two appetizers to share between 3 of us: Duck Tartare/Foix Gras and Tenderloin. I think we could have licked the plate. The taste combinations were excellent and the presentation worth taking pictures. For entree, two had the walleye and one had the bison. We were all SO SATISFIED!!! Food was very well prepared and just right mix of flavors.

    MontrealvisitorVIP
    Dined on 11/29/2013
    Went for dinner and unfortunately did not check the menu beforehand. Very limited selection of appetizers and entrees, all fussy "gourmet" items. Average price ~$15 for 4oz glass of wine, appetizers up to $24, typical entrees $25-30. Service average to slow. Best thing is the relatively extensive wine list, forget the food.

    Nous avons passé une belle soirée chez Accords! Les plats étaient très bons et les vins très originaux. Par contre peut-être que la prochaine fois je prendrais une bouteille au lieu de goûter des vins différents qui parfois ne sont pas une suite logique les uns avec les autres (par contre ils étaient tous très bons avec leur plat respectif). Le serveurs et sommeliers sont vraiment très sympathiques. Les desserts sont vraiment excellents, avec beaucoup d'originalité et de travail! P.S.: Pensez y aller en taxi ou en transport en commun, sinon la seule option viable pour le stationnement est de prendre les stationnements payants.

    Dined on 10/11/2013
    I have been an Accords fan for almost 5 years (~ 10 visits) but regrettably, I will not be returning or recommending this resto any more. The initial fun of Accords, Desaccords and Reconciliation has been reduced to a single suggestion (some were OK but worse, all were predictable) and the choices are no longer exciting (I still remember a gorgeous Montrachet that was a steal at $25/glass) . The service has been going downhill for the past year or so - slow, too many different people coming to the table, and it is not clear who is doing what (if there was an actual sommelier on site, that was not apparent). With all the great restos in Montreal, becoming a shadow of your former self means this loyal diner will be making other choices. :(

    The seasonal styled menu was exquisite and the unusual wine pairings were extremely interesting. I had a glass of Riesling with my Bison bavette and the pairing created an interesting fusion of flavour. The entree that highlighted my night was the foie gras with cinnamon ice cream but my girlfriend disagrees as the duck foie gras took the spotlight for her. Also the Makerel with dijon and dill salsa was an explosion of flavour in the mouth that kept you wanting more. We were running late and could not try the deserts which was an ultimate regret as there were several tantalizing options. Only downside was that the service was a little slow and the ambience didn't pick up until later on. Our serveuse was very nice but not amazing.
