A word from Chez Chose
Chez Chose offers a menu from a blackboard.This menu varies depending on the season and the products from our providers, each and every one of them Quebec’s very own craftsmen. It also varies following the fantasies of our chef Marie-France Desrosiers whom plays around the products we receive, maintaining a fresh and seasonal selection. May it be foie gras, vegetables, rabbit, guinea fowl regardless of the delivery, she will lay in your plate a joyful mix of flavours . The perfect brew of our local farmers’ hard work and the genius of Marie-France has made Chez Chose something… grandiose. Have a taste, you will see....

Chez Chose vous propose un menu à l'ardoise. Ce menu varie au gré des saisons et des arrivages de nos fournisseurs, tous sans exception des artisans du terroir québécois. Il varie aussi selon les fantaisies de notre chef Marie-France Desrosiers qui s'amuse avec ce que nos producteurs d'ici lui envoient, pour autant que tout soit frais et de saison.

    Our group of four ( from various backgrounds, levels of foodiness and adventure) all enjoyed an outstanding dinner here. The service is terrific...Bobby walked through the entire menu in lovely English & the food was delicious. Lots of flavor and perfect portion sizes. We had duck, piglet, venison, char and gnocchi and every plate was clean! Highly recommend for flavor, ambiance and a service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 10/30/2014
    Amuse of squab and duck crostini dressed with something dijonish. Yum! Appetizers of soft boiled egg with sauteed mushrooms (Yum!), and the silkiest foie gras with spiced rois mage with curry maple syrup (most delicious foie gras torchon presentation I have ever tasted). Main of cerf de boileau venison medallions with bearnaise, roasted vegetables and thick-cut fries. Thankful for the bearnaise because the venison - while oerfectly cooked and tender - had very little of its own flavour. Still a good dish. Desserts of a frothy pineapple rum creme brule, and an eclair with chocolate sauce and crushed pistachio. Service very friendly, and typical of a busy neighbourhood resto. Noise level rose dramatically when resto was full. Will return!

    What an incredible night out we had at Chez Chose. We were warmly welcomed and had a wonderful evening. The staff were friendly and passionate about what they were serving. We each had a Table d'Hote and were blown away at each course. The fish of the day was cooked to perfection with an amazing home made chimichurri sauce. The pork belly was to die for! The custom made doughnuts were delicious. We can't wait to return to Montreal to experience more of what Chez Chose has to offer.

    We asked for the 5 course dinner, chef's surprise. Each course had wine that blended with it. Came in at 18h00 and left at 22h30. Never felt rushed or waited for next service. Simply ate and talked at our rhythm.

    Chez Chose a peut être déménagé, mais la bonne ambiance, l'acceuil chaleureux et l'esquise nourriture sont toujours là. Il me fait toujours plaisir de venir prendre mon brunch le dimanche matin entre amis, laissez vous inspirer par leur menu, tout est vraiment bon. Et si vous ne savez pas quoi choisir, faites confiance aux propriétaires, ils sauront vous faire découvrir de nouvelles saveurs. Quand à l'endroit, bravo pour le déménagement et la nouvelle décoration ! Pas de flafla, accueillant, on se sent comme à la maison ! Bravo

    This restaurant was above average from all aspects. The best part if the meal was the service. They had no fish left so the fish/veggie mixed dish was a no go so the waiter suggested the article char from the appetizer to mix with the rest of my dish. Although this was good there would have should have been other suggestions that the server would have had. Overall 4/5 and worth a visit

    My family and I have been coming to this restaurant for years, first at their old St-Denis location and now at their new location on Bélanger. Their new space is bigger and absolutely gorgeous, with the same blackboard menu for which they are known. The food is always fresh and delicious, with fabulous takes on culinary favorites. The staff is friendly and efficient - you really feel that you are at a family-run establishment! The quality of everything, from cocktails to dessert, is top-notch. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great meal, for any occasion.

    Our high expectations, based on reading others' reviews, were fulfilled. Our welcoming and genial host got the meal off to a great start, the food was superb, and the atmosphere (even down to the volume level of the background music) conducive to conversation. Just a great little place.

    Chez chose offers a warm cosy atmosphere for dining. It's a mom pop operation that offers a varied original menu on a blackboard. The staff is very friendly and go into great detail to describe each dish on the menu. Appetizers and main courses are beautifully presented and tasted good as well. When the deer arrived cooked medium to well done, it was quickly whisked away and a few minutes later a fresh plate arrived cooked rare as had been requested. All in all, our dining experience (5of us) was very pleasant. We will return to their new location in late summer.

    Une très belle découverte que ce petit resto sympathique. Les plats sont délicieux, différents et très bien présentés. Le service est chaleureux, énergique et enjoué. Ça paraît que les trois propriétaires aiment leur lieu et satisfaire leur clientèle. Bravo! À noter : Le resto change d'enseigne prochainement et sera fermé environ de la mi-juin au mois d'août 2014. Il ouvrira au 1979 Bélanger dans un coin résidentiel plus tranquille que la rue St-Denis.

    I went to Chez Chose along with 7 other friends, and we absolutely loved our experience. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced- in fact, I have spent the same amount at a number of other restaurants downtown and in Old Montreal that were nowhere near as delicious as Chez Chose. The staff was great and so was the ambiance. Fabulous first experience and it definitely won't be our last!

    Excellente expérience pour ce dimanche ensoleillé. Les plats sont des classiques revisités avec originalité (ah, la tartiflette !). Les produits sont de qualité et authentiques. J'ai apprécié le service du mimosa : on nous apporte la flûte de Champagne à moitié remplie avec le jus d'orange et on sert le champagne par dessus à la table. Le service est aimable, chaleureux et respectueux. Bref, un endroit plaisant à l'atmosphère détendue.

We were all impressed and very satisfied with both our entrees and main plates. Absolutely delicious food, great service (very friendly and not snooty at all), and a relaxing ambiance.

    When we walked in the restaurant, Robert provided a warm welcome and did a fantastic job of describing the menu to us. When he was done, it was truly difficult to make a choice! In the end we were not disappointed with our meals. They were great from appetizer to dessert. While it may be a bit pricey, it was well worth it. My wife and I agreed that it was one of the best meals we ever had in Montreal.

    Definitely my favorite place to go in Montreal when I want to indulge and splurge. I've been several times now, and I love the personalized service you get from this family owned and operated restaurant. Their private import wine list is great. The food is always fresh, and as the menu changes every week or so, according to the season, market and Chef's inspiration, there is always something new and amazing to discover.
