A word from L'Atelier d'Argentine
L’Atelier d’Argentine is contemporary Argentinean in food and style as if torn out of the heart of Buenos Aires. Rooted in the history and nestled in the urban and regional landscape, the genuine Argentinean cuisine is distinct with a strong flavorful identity —easy to understand and even easier to love.
L’Atelier d’Argentine’s menu is honest, focusing on the quality of the core ingredient and a true reflection of contemporary Argentinian food.

L’Atelier d’Argentine offers 4 to 6 lucky patrons the chance to discover the flavours of Argentina. Seated right by the kitchen and the wine cellar, the lucky few have a privileged access to Chef Natalia Machado who gladly accompanies them on a six-course culinary experience.
Each course features a typical dish, and an Argentinian wine pairing.

The menu changes every week. Upon reservation only, each journey promises to be unique. The price, $95 per person, includes all food and wine.

    Bons choix pour le brunch. Menu qui se distingue des menus traditionnels. Le service à été très lent sans aucune explication ni excuses. Nos voisins arrivés apres nous ont quitté avant nous. Quiche fromage de chèvre et poireau bonne. Mon conjoint a choisi œuf miroir, bacon et pommes de terre (bleues). Le bacon maison est délicieux.

  • 2nd time around for Mtl a Table

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    Hello! We were blown away by your Mtl a table food offerings on Sunday, November 9th. So much that we needed to try it once more before the extended version of it ended on Nov 16th. Unfortunately, we were not served comparable plates for the main course (the Osso Buco). Quite disappointed in the main - the jus (that sauce!), the meat, all out of this world on Sunday, but absolutely not the same on Friday evening when we returned for 2nds. I would not hide from the restaurant... but let's say my cravings were not met! The service and ambiance were outstanding. Keep that up!

    The filet was the best we have ever had and we have eaten a lot of good steak in our day!! Will be back as the servers and the cheese ball bread were beyond all expectations. They were out of our tea of choice, but brought a nice replacement after bill was paid, on the house, just to be nice and they kept bringing the gluten free cheese bread without my friend asking after the second bowl, so good, every bite of every food on the table and the fireplace and salt on the table made everyone feel like we had everything we needed for a perfect meal. We will be back!!

    The ambiance was nice but the food was just ok, except for the mussels, they were really good. I ordered the osso buco and I found it to be a bit dry, and there was no marrow to be found. Also, the butter balls that were served with the bread were frozen, I could not even cut through them with a knife. The waiter was also a bit dry, he barely said 2 words to us, simply came to drop off and pick up the plates. I don't think I would give this restaurant another shot unless I had to go with a group.

    This is the third time we have dined at this establishment. The first was at MTL a Table, the second for a birthday party I organized and recently for brunch. The food was not hot and our eggs at the brunch were not cooked at all ( huevos al horno). The smoked salmon plate was unfinished ( a couple slices of smoked salmon on a dry brioche bun, with a salad on the side-we had to ask for cream cheese). It took 30 mins to take our order ( we arrived at 1130am on a sunday when the place was far from being full). It will be the last time we dine at this restaurant. Its a shame that all the hype from the owners having brought an argentinian chef was such a deception!

    Portions are tiny and expensive, but everything is very fresh and the quality is great. The menu is not very traditional and if you know authentic Argentinian cuisine you might get disappointed with some of the dishes, like Revuelto Gramajo

    We had such an amazing time at this incredible steak house. The staff was amazing and really made our special night truly incredible. I don't recall the name of our server (shorter guy, beard) probably because of the wine we had, but he was outstanding. The steak platters that were brought out were succulent and perfectly cooked. Best meal in Montreal!!

    Great décor, comfortable seating, interesting menu and very good cuisine, all undermined by slow, nonchalant if smiling service. Sweet tooths : opt for the dulce de leche crepe over the ordinary doughnut holes. Don't fall for the misleading "all-you-can-drink" bloody mary web ads: the actual price ($38) is prohibitive, and includes drink only!

    Fantastic steaks and great wines! The blue cheese and pears salad is very good too. Elegant place and cosy on the side of the fireplace, but we were with kids and coulds eat on that side. The atmosphere is very cold on the other side of the restaurant. Wrong choice of music... Way to loungy for me.

    We booked in for a late Saturday night dinner (10:30pm) and were seated at the bar while our table was made ready. Food was very good my wife had Milanese and I had the lamb and the Pulpo appetizer. Wine list is extensive and we had a couple of glasses of the house Malbec. Would definitely go back again perhaps with a group of friends.

    After lived in Argentina for a few years I really want to recommend this place. There is plenty parking spots around and it has a beautiful view of Montreal old's port architecture. There are a lot of quiet corners, specially one with a almost private area that I enjoyed having a great time in my first anniversary.
