  • "The second time didn't let me down.....had the lobster/citrus salad, WOW ! Halibut was perfect and the sundae, a dinner worth remembering !"

  • "Best meal in Montreal this trip, Lobster salad with citrus flavors was wonderful. Steak frites , PERFECT ! Service was warm and friendly. Dessert was delicious, both the sundae and the homemade sorbert with fruit were wonderful. My only complaint is the temperature, not of the food, of the restaurant. This incredibly handsome man sitting at the next was even fanning himself (hint to the staff/owners) when he arose his shirt was wet on his skin, No one wants wants to be some warm , even on a lovely summer evening."

  • "We arrived at our reservation time and were seated. The host wasn't sure where we were to be seated - too bad. However, he was very attentive thereafter, ensuring the food and service was to our satisfaction. My guest ordered the duck, which they were out of, then the blackened halibut and the steak & frites. I ordered the short ribs. Each dish was served hot and well presented. Each of us raved about the flavours and taste. The ribs were tender and flavourful without being tough. The halibut moist and superbly seasoned together with brussel sprouts and a sweet potato puree. The steak & frites, well what con one say - the fries were cooked perfectly and salted just right, the steak was server cooked to order, medium, and hot. I recommend."

  • "I expected a better dining experience. Some menu items were not available - waitress should have told us before ordering. Received a Bloody Cesar that a rookie mixologist would not make. Desserts were very tasty, but an overall disappointment"

  • "Went on a special deal coupon. Food was delicious, service was very good and menu was interesting. Dessert was out of this world! But a basic pizza at $26 was very overpriced!.So enjoy but be prepared for a sizeable bill"

  • "Super bon souper comme à chaque fois que j'y suis allé. La burrata était crémeuse et fraiche mais il aurait fallu lui donner un petit qqchose avec une bonne huile d'olive. En plat, le filet de turbot était parfait et les accompagnements aussi. Un parfait mélange de saveurs et de textures. Pour dessert, le pudding au pain est tellement bon qu'on n'a même pas envie d'essayer autre chose. Attention, sur le pudding au pain, la portion est assez généreuse pour deux. Seul bémol, nous avions réservé pour 18h car c'était complet pour le reste de la soirée. à 18h nous étion 6 dans le resto; ça tue un peu l'ambiance. Départ vers 19h30 et il y avait à peine plus de monde."

  • "On Valentine's day, arriving at the restaurant, we were asked for our reservations, but the place was pretty empty, which we thought was a bit odd. Okay, it is located a couple of corners from Ste-Catherine street, and it was snowy outside, but still I'd anticipated more activity on such a night. The service was moderately slow throughout the meal, they even forgot that we had ordered a bottle of wine, and opened it after the main course was served. The food was okay - we both had a variety of burrata, and I think the chili compote was the highlight of the meal. The main course of Cioppino was a disappointment. Muddled flavors and gritty seafood, and the fish was overcooked. And the bill did NOT reflect our experience. Disappointing."

  • "This place is only worth a few words... If you want to dish out an easy 150$ for 2 (without deserts/coffee)... and feel like you got robbed in quality and taste... well go ahead. There is too many great spots in MTL to end up spending time in Kitchennette. Sorry guys, you need to revamp and take care of the food you serve."

  • "Nous étions quatre a table pour ce repas. Notre reservation etait a 19h30. A l'arrivé l'ambiance nous a charmé. Le serveur au départ était sympathique et attentionné mais je crois que l'affluence du resto a fini par nuire à notre expérience... Il devenait trop occupé. Nous avons du demander a deux reprise pour le pain, aucun service pour le vin. Les entrées étaient bonne mais les potages plutot ordinaire et très salé. Les plats principaux bon et correct mais sans plus.... Notre expèrience globale a été correct pour un repas entre amis qui son de bon vivant mais malheurusement pas assez pour nous influencer a revenir. Dommage...."

  • "Slow service, we had to call the waiter to our table several times. Food, wine and other drinks are overpriced. Disappointing."

  • "This little gem of a restaurant is located on the corner of Panet and Renee Levesque in the Village. I thought it was a fantastic experience except for finding parking which can be difficult on the weekends. I have been to this restaurant two times and both times I really enjoyed my experience. In all I've tried the tuna nachos, japanese taco, the green salad, butternut squash soup and bass. My favs are the nachos and taco but all are delicious! The food is really tasty, reasonably priced and the service is courteous and informed. I even booked through vieurbaine's accessresto and saved 20% right off my bill! I recommend to anyone looking to dine well without having to take a hit to your wallet! You won't be disappointed."

  • "I have enjoyed the food kitchenette for several years. Although the menu is quite similar to the previous owners I feel that the new owners need to find their stride. I will definitely be back in a few months to see where they are then"

  • "Nourriture ok sans éclat beaucoup trop dispendieux pour la qualité présentée. On n'y retourne pas, décevant par rapport à la réputation prédecedente."
    Dined on 9/28/2013
  • "It's all american cuisine, mainly southern. It's delicious, but I had the japanese taco as appetizer and for the price, it was only a small taco as my supper partners had soup, fried green tomato and crab cake and portion were much better. It was 2 crab cake, good flavor (I don't even like crab cake usually.) So it had it's hit and miss. It was mainly hit, but if it was a tiny bit cheaper it would be perfect."

  • "The lobster roll was generous, the lobster eas perfectly cooked and it tasted great! I tried mane ones this summer in Maine but this one was #1!"
    Dined on 9/20/2013
  • "We enjoyed this place; not too busy so the lull in service was noted but not irksome. the food was very good. Crab cakes, fried squid, japanes taco apps shared among us. The squid was a tiny bit salty but other than that, very good apps. We had shorts ribs, salmon (special of the night), swordfish, and cioppino. They only had two servings of salmon so swordfish was ordered as replacement. Everyone enjoyed their food. Drink selection was ok, nothing terribly notable. Their bourbon lemonade was very good. Dessert was exceptional. The bread pudding was divine and the cracker jack toffee sundae excellent. One of us even ordered a dessert to go for the next day. I would recommend this place and we would certainly go again given the opportunity."

  • "Food was good. service was not up to par with the reputation of the restaurant and certainly not at the level of what I had the previous time I went there. It would be in the interest of the restaurant to add more new meals to the menu on a regular base."
    Dined on 9/11/2013
  • "My experience at this restaurant was okay. The food is very good but the service is so terrible it doesnt make you want to go back. The waiters are rude. They do not bring water to the table nor bread (we had to ask for them twice). And they would NEVER come to the table . Overall good food, but you feel so insulted by the lack of service that it doesnt make you want to return"

  • "A group of six of us stopped by Kitchenette for a nice dinner prior to a night out on the town. We had a great time, loved the food, and really appreciated the kind and attentive service. The specials are pricey but well worth it!"

  • "The best side salad I had the whole time I was in Montreal. The lettuce tasted like lettuce- so fresh like the grew it in the back garden (well somebody's back garden). This restaurant is a lovely neighbourhood-y gem. Simple, unfussy farm-to-table food prepared with thought and care using local ingredients. Service was very friendly and helpful. A large party (like 20+ showed up as we were finishing our meal which made the place a little noisy, but prior to that, the dim lighting, simple clean decor and ambiance was very relaxed. Our table for two even had upholstered leather armchairs!"

  • "Used to be good, but no more. Pulled beef taco and the Burrata entree were good. Short Beef ribs were devoid of any taste. The evening special called surf and turf was incredibly disappointing. It consisted of blackened scallops lying on a base of creamed corn with a slice of corn bread on which maple infused foie gras mousse had been spread. The foie gras mousse was overpowered by the maple sirop and was much too sweet. The corn bread had no taste and the creamed corn as well. I love foie gras and this was a major disappointment. I mentioned it to the waiter gently after having paid and while leaving but it appears that I am the only one who has ever had a poor experience...according to him."

  • "I'm not going to lie, I went back to Kitchenette mainly for the dessert. I had been dreaming about the Bread Pudding and the Sticky Toffee Pudding since my last dinning experience at the restaurant back in December, and so for my birthday, it was the obvious choice. And boy let me tell you it did not disappoint. We shared the two desserts between 3 of us and it was more than enough. That said, the portions did seem smaller than last time (or maybe it was that I didn't want them to end). So good!"

  • "Poulet frit, short rib, pullpork, des classiques de la cuisine du sud des États-Unis, mais plus subtils et raffinés que ceux trouvés dans les bouibouis qui servent habituellement cette cuisine. Le crab cake était délicieux, mais sa présentation un peu trop simple m’a déçue un peu. Le goût du lobster roll était superbe et bien assaisonné, mais ses accompagnements ne m’ont pas jetée par terre. Le short rib aux accents de sauce BBQ avait une chaire moelleuse et sucrée. La carte des vins se tient dans des prix élevés. Relativement facile de trouver du stationnement le soir, car un peu à l’écart des autres restaurants."

  • "I highly recommend this place! The service was spectacular and the food was amazing! My 9 year old son loved his crab cakes and lobster and black truffle pizza! It was our first night in Montreal, visiting from Saskatoon, and by far, no where else we dined while vacationing there, even compared to Kitchenette! Thank you for indulging, and satisfying, this foodie from Saskatchewan...I will definitely be back!"

  • "We were hoping for an innovative and interesting dining experience and were far from disappointed. From the moment we entered and were pleasantly greeted by the staff our visit was one we will remember. Our excellent waiter guided us to some of the best dishes we have tried in a long time. The Tuna tartare was superb and the Japanese Taco was unbelievably delicious. Our main courses of Braised Short Ribs and Fried Chicken, both recommendations from our waiter, were both fantastic. We will definitely be going back for more."
