The experience was fantastic.The experience was fantastic. The food was good. Excellent service ....and special meals !!12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMUnaccomodating serviceThe food was excellent accompanied by a beautiful ambiance. However, the service was disappointing. We were a group of 4 from TO so I understood that the language could be a bit of an issue but our waitress spoke good English so I assumed we won't have any issues. After I clearly pointed to the selection of pork on the board, she brought us fish! I was pretty upset since my uncle is not a huge fan of fish but she refused to do anything about it. I said that I would like her to bring us what I ordered but instead she said that she read the order in French back to us and we didn't correct her! How could I? I don't speak French & said pork several times, she said she understood. I expected for her to correct her mistake but she didn't.9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMpicked for wedding anniversarypicked for wedding anniversary to change from always a romantic restaurant and love it
food was excellent very nice staff and enjoyed the ambiance prices were a bit more expansive then average but all worth it :)
thank you for the great time and food9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM5 stars just isn't enough!Oh my...BEST short ribs the BF EVER ATE IN HIS LIFE!! My pierogies were cooked so perfectly well that the creamy filling melted in my mouth along with the morsels of the very first pork belly I ever ate...the crusty edges of the pasta made the dish. From beginning to end, our experience with the wait service was astonishing. Ever present but not at all intrusive, staff clearly love what they do. We were chastised for not alerting that 2 of our party had to cancel at the last moment...but they made up for it by seating us 45 minutes early (we were prepared to rest a while at the bar). Atmosphere is warm and lush, music-spot on, wait staff ever alert, and menu incomparable for variety and balances nicely when sharing. Special in ALL ways.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe honeymoon is over.I go there a couple times a year since I live close-by. This time my experience was ok, but I have to admit that everytime I go there it's always a little bit less good as the time before. This use to be my favoritte restaurant, the one I was always telling others about, but it seems to be over. Food, was OK, but not awesome like it used to be...some changes on the menu are not as appealing as the ones that made Garde Manger what it is. Anyway, it's still good, but it's not great anymore.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding but a bit overpricedOur evening at le garde manger was amazing but i would not recommend the restaurant to most of my friend because of the price of a dinner ! Because there is no "table d'hote" choice, the meal can get quite expensive quite fast !
The ambiance though was outstanding and the service was perfect ! Nice advices from the waitress about her recomendation !
Very nice evening !5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good MealGreat menu with many creative items. Asian fusion meets quebec-french classic. Desserts and bar drinks are outstanding. Only issue - NO KIDS ALLOWED - so hire a baby sitter.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMmmm carrots.I had the scallops and gnocchi in carrot butter. I wasn't really a fan of cooked carrots, but cooked this way I could eat them everyday! So delish! The staff was great and you could really tell that they were a family and loved going to work. Great place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYummmmmFood was amazing made with simple ingredients (how can butter and carrot sauce taste soooo good?). Random music but awesome, loved the ambiance. Only thing was that it was a little expensive so I wouldn't be able to eat there as often as I like, but it was definitely worth the experience. And once again food was amazing5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!!!!!Ce restaurant est l'un de nos préférer. Seul bémol, c'est très difficile de réserver. Nous irions manger au Garde-Manger plus souvent si c'était plus facile de réserver. Peut-être donner la possibilité de réserver plus loin que 1 mois serait une bonne option5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMperfectI'm a big chuck hughes fan and he delivers at Garde Manger. Great food, great service, overall great time!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out.Garde Manger is simply amazing. The food, service and ambiance were top notch. We could not find a fault with the restaurant even if we tried. We went with friends and their reaction was much like ours...possibly the best dining experience ever!!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticThis was the second time I had my birthday dinner at this restaurant, and it was just as good the second time around. The staff are friendly and courteous, the atmosphere was great and the food (as always) was amazing!!!
You cannot go wrong when going to this restaurant!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingIt was our first time to eat at the Garde Manger and it won't be our last time. We were just two of us and they sat us at the bar in the back and it was perfect. We got to interact with the bartender / waitress and amazing oyster shucker. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Now the food, AMAZING!!! We had to start the lobster poutine and the oeuf mimosa crab fried oyster. Both delicious! Then we shared the braised rib with crunchy vegetables. Better than we could have imagined. A taste buds delight! We have eaten in many restaurants, but the atmosphere, the staff and the food made it the best place we have been to so far. You have to reserve a month in advance and I know now why. AMAZING!!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the flight!I flew in from Halifax to meet my husband who was already in Montreal for a conference. One night for the express purpose of going to Garde Manger. Worth every penny! It was probably the finest meal we've ever had and we have dined extensively in Toronto, Quebec and throughout the Maritimes, as well as in Europe. Lobster poutine, tuna tartare, trout stuffed with oysters, lobster risotto, housemade brownie! Amazing! Our server was fantastic and we loved the music and the overall vibe. Eclectic mix of diners added to the ambience.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOH WHAT A NIGHTWe went on a Sunday which is supposed to be much quieter, and for that I am grateful :) Food was exciting and new as well as delicious, the service exceptionally friendly and enthusiastic. Great relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful evening out.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting Montreal for theVisiting Montreal for the first time in years, I was so excited to try this restaurant and it did not disappoint! The food was amazing! And I haven't never been to a restaurant where all the staff truly seemed to love their job. The service was impeccable! We loved everything about this restaurant and will back the next time we're in Montreal.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
