Diner Reviews
  • "The food was average. The bread they served us was old and there was no butter. We ordered Mozzarella di bufala Capres, it was OK. I asked for "Insalata di rughetta con Parmigiano Reggiano croccante" but they didn't have it anymore. I took the mixed salad it was very average. For the main dishes we ordered the "Cotoletta alla Milanese", the veal was good but I had the same crappy salad, the server couldn't tell me it's the same. We also ordered "Spaghetti alla CARBONARA" and they were average. Overall the food is average and the service it bad, I'm not going back for sure. Don't waste your money."

  • "I took my girlfriend here completely blind and it was fantastic. I have never been anywhere with better service.. Both the owner and the waiter were very friendly and enjoyed sparking small talk, but they were not interrupting anything. They were also always there to poor our glasses of wine and make sure everything was ok. I had the spaghetti and it was quite delicious, but not incredible. However, you could taste the authenticity and care put into the dish.. It tasted homemade, which is most important. Great ambience, feels cozy and comfortable. Very good for dates, special occasions or even a fancy business meeting location. Prices were fair. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in montreal!"

  • "Good food but i was expecting more for a italian restaurant.... Plate presentaions was awful, I took the veal with a cream sauce of porcini and truffle the veal was really good but too much sauce and i had a small portion of mashed potatoes which i thought pasta would go better with the veal and a little portion of vegetable all you could see was the sauce in the plate.... For 35$ the plate i was definetly expecting more of this italian restaurant.... :-(("

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our late evening dinner at this place - started with fresh green salads, nice light flavorful dressings. The veal with truffle sauce was cooked perfectly & the sauce was superb. A great wine list but when we could not decide on a wine, our waiter chose a bottle for us based on what we described. It was perfect - delicious and affordable. We were treated extremely well, friendly staff who knew the menu thoroughly. Dessert was excellent - we will be returning for the peach cake! A very enjoyable experience with fresh, well prepared food. You can't go wrong at BIS Ristorante. Five stars!"

  • "We dined at this restaurant on a cold Montreal night. We're from the states, and in general, many of the Canadian restaurants are expensive. This one was worth the price. The food was exceptional, the service was great and the atmosphere was warm and cozy. We left feeling valued and satisfied."

  • "Food was excellent. Service was sub-par. Found ourselves pouring our own wine. Waiter was obviously spending all his time a a table with a frequent guest, or where he thought he. Would get a great we tip. Disappointing, but the food was excellent."

  • "We had a large group of 12, and we were accommodated well with a reservation made in advance thru Open Table. Confirmation was prompt, and special requests identified. The food and service was exceptional with personal attention provided throughout our visit by the wait staff and management from door to door. The BIS Ristorante would come very highly recommend by myself and each of those that attended our dinner event, advising they experienced a dining event they will remember for some time with an ambiance that was friendly, and attentive. Thank you for a wonderful evening, we will be back soon!"

  • "From the moment you enter you feel like an old friend. The service is wonderful! The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is warm and friendly! The little meatballs brought to your table for a sampling were mouth watering. The fish special was excellent and the veal done to perfection. In today's day and age it's refreshing to go to a restaurant and honestly feel appreciated for your business. Kudos to BIS - it's our new favourite!!"

  • "I travel quite a bit for work. BIS was one of the best Italian restaurants at which I have ever dined, including throughout Italy and in New York City. The food, while not overly fancy, was impressive in presentation. More importantly, the quality and taste off he meals were off the charts. Our waiter was extremely attentive yet not over-bearing in any fashion. I wish I lived in Montreal so I could frequent BIS."

  • "Got to BIS on time for our reservation only to find our table had people still at it (I could see the seating chart on the computer screen). The Mater Di did everything he could to get us seated. It was a very busy night at max capacity. 15 minutes later we got a table for 2 right in the middle of the main aisle.Less than ideal, but the staff worked as best they could to get us reseated as soon as a more desirable table was available. After about 20 minutes, we were reseated, and the rest of the night-food, service, ambiance- was excellent. We were comped our desserts and after-dinner drinks. A gesture that was appreciated.Sometimes things are beyond a restaurant's control. We would recommend this establishment. We will come back again."

  • "Most of the people appreciate a very good service that also means not over what it needs to be confortable. Here we can have the perfect balance for service, meals and prices. So, if you're looking for a great italian intimate restaurant in downtown Montreal, you must try this one."

  • "From the moment we made the reservation the experience was fabulous. We were warmly greeted by Aldo and had a lovely spot. The antipasto was amazing and the calamari the best we've had. The gnocchi special was ok (bit disappointed) but the veal was like butter. Service was brisk and attentive. The serenading tenor was a delightful touch and made the evening that much more special."

  • "The food is excellent. There were 4 of us plus an 18 month old. They do not have highchairs, but did provide a booster seat. We all had different entrées and they were all delicious. We had to veal with cream sauce and veal piccata. We had spaghetti with a lamb ragu and spaghetti Bolognese. The veal piccata was the favorite.. The calamari appetizer was also excellent The owner was very attentive to all the patrons. We ate early because of the baby and it was very crowded because of the Montréal Canadiens game. See, all the locals know where to eat!"
