    This was my first time dining at la Verita and a first at a fine dining establishment. I must say that it was stunning from the decor, to the lighting, service staff, food and wine. Everything was perfectly exquisite and it exceeded not only my expectations but my guest as well. The la Verita restaurant is truly is a hidden neighbourhood gem that I have had the pleasure of discovering. I know that upon entry my guest picked up a business card at the front display table and is most definitely going to show off my find to her family that didn't know. I am so glad google knew about your restaurant and that it wasn't lying about rating it the best restaurant in the area a rating it truly deserves! Great job and keep up the great work!!

    The food was excellent and flavourful. Service was impeccable and friendly. You would think that you are in a hip restaurant downtown not in a parking lot of a west island shopping center. Homemade pasta a bonus though I think that mine may have been fresh frozen and my husbands was way spicy. Desserts well worth the calories and then some. The terrace at night is simply splendid. A gem in the wasteland of chain restaurants in the West Island.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    made reservations 1 week in advance & asked for quiet table. Were placed in center of floor at ground level between large noisy parties & no room to move. Waiter was in a rush, pushed for our drink, wine & food orders, came back every 5 minutes to see if we were ready. Since the waiter was abrupt and bordering on rude I finally asked what the rush was. He said he wanted to have our orders in the kitchen before he had to deal with the groups. A nicer approach would have won our appreciation and understanding. Once we had that out of the way waiter became less stressed and overall food was good. Will try again & hope for better. Seems like we caught an experienced waiter in a bad mood which dampened our spirits and overall experience

    First impressions were very good. I had an excellent appetizer - burrata cheese served with a toast of raisin/hazelnut bread - but, the portion was much too large (the burrata was the size of a large kaiser roll). This was followed by a cream of asparagus soup; weak, watery, and with no depth of flavour. My main was lobster broth risotto with one huge U10-size grilled shrimp. The shrimp was badly overcooked - the risotto bland and uninteresting (no lobstr flavor). My wife had the lobster ravioli - very thin raviolo with hardly any filling, swimming in a thick cream/cheese sauce. More like a meatless ravioli alfredo. The dessert was a competent espresso creme brulee. Overall, we were quite disappointed and will probably not go back.

    My husband and I dined at La Verita for the second time in three months and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The Lobster Ravioli dish was made perfectly with lovely cream sauce. Don't forget to leave room for dessert! We had the Tiramisu with nutella and it was one of the best! Thank you to the staff for making it a wonderful experience and we shall definitely be back again :)

    We really love it here. It's what I call the 150. 2 people will dine excellently with a bottle of wine or cocktails for 150. I had the Bison Medaillon and it was fabulous! My wife had the Veal Chop and both were cooked to perfection. If you live in the West Island this one is a must. Outdoor patio is heated as well for those chilly nights.

    My husband tried this place for the first time about 2 weeks ago and we knew right away we would be back. Sure enough, 1.5 weeks later, we went back! Both times, everything was excellent from the food, to the service, to the atmosphere. This restaurant exemplifies what an excellent restaurant should be, but so many fall short in Montreal.

    Great find this restaurant. The menu is not your typical "trying to look high end restaurant", it was very appealing for all. Great fish, meat and other main menu options. Tried the duck and mushroom risoto, it was the best I ever had! My wife was more partial to a wonderfull salmon plate. Entrées and desert were as diverse and good as the main menu. Very nice wine list A must for the west island and would rival the best tables in Montreal

    Great find on the West Island. The quality of food and service was outstanding. Johnny our server was very knowledgable and helpful with his suggestions. The interior has a very modern vibrant trendy feel but still very appropriate for a romantic evening out. We plan on making this restaurant one of our regular visits each time we are in Montreal.

    Love the restaurant, food is excellent although found the salad a little limp on last two visits, perfect place for a pleasant evening. Fish in particular has been outstanding every time and all main plates very well presented with appropriate portion sizes - enough to satisfy but not too large. Desserts are good too - when you can manage one. Found the wine a little pricey, but the food is reasonably priced when you consider the quality. A good spot for lunch and possible to have fairly private conversations without too much interruption or surrounding noise. Follow your servers recommendation on both the specials and the wine - you won't go wrong. I'll be going back again - many times I hope.

    It must be the 4th time I go and try a new menu ---It is always as excellent. I find the risotto out of this world their soup is exquisite too . We have been a group of people for the last two times and each one had a different plate and all as good. Definitely a place to go eat in DDO. The only draw back is the noise if seated in the middle and the place is full you can hardly hear the others and you have to shout to be heard. My suggestion is to lower the music a bit.

    This restaurant is great for couples looking for a romantic dining experience and small groups. Very relaxing atmosphere and possibly the best service I've ever seen in a restaurant. The waiters are very knowledgeable, and friendly. The owner walks around and makes sure everything is good. I have no doubt in my mind that they really want to make sure your dining experience is the best possible. Now for the best part, the food was great. I had the lobster ravioli and my wife had the veal. Both dishes were great, all in all a great experience. I'll definitely be going back.

The menu changes weekly, but some dishes are always on the menu, such as the Lobster Ravioli, which is one of my favorites. I always recommend this restaurant to friends, and take out-of-town visitors .

    I go to La Verita on a special occasion basis (3-4 times a year). I usually do not have anything to complaint about. Food is great, wine list is honest, the ambiance is great and the staff is courteous. I was there 2nd week of December with important customers. I picked up the place because the food is great. Granted it is a busy time of the year. But the time before we got our menu, placed order, received our meals, etc.... way too long for a lunch. It is really sad. I am just writing this comment so they can take care of this. I still recommend the place and I will certainly go again. Although, if this is happen again. I will go somewhere else.

    My husband and I went to La Verita for the first time to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We were seated next to the lovely fireplace, which made it a romantic setting for our special celebration. The server provided us with top notch service throughout the meal, and at the end of our dining experience, presented us with a delicious tiramisu dessert with a candle. That made our evening super wonderful! Thank you to La Verita for making our anniversary so special. We shall be back :)

    As party of six friends we have dined at this restaurant two or three times in the last two years and have enjoyed it on each occasion. The food and the service are very good and the prices are reasonable. Being there during the week the restaurant was not full but I suspect that when it is full the noise level could be quite high. Not good for senior retirees.
