Went to this restaurant for a romantic night out, and it did not disappoint! The ambiance was quiet but not silent, the service was great, but despite the nearly empty dining hall the waiter was not overbearing. I had the gnocchi with lobster and it was one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. She had the Quadri stuffed with salmon and ricotta with a cherry tomato sauce which was also exquisite. The wine specialist recommended a Pinot Grigio (you can never go wrong with that choice) and it complimented our meals perfectly. Chocolate mousse dessert was also incredible. 2 meals and dessert with a bottle of wine is not cheap at this restaurant but for a special occasion it is well worth it. I will definitely be back!

Overall, very statisfied of my dinner at Ridi. My only thumb downs would be it is a bit pricy... I know that we are expecting to pay more for alchool and other things around but 8$ for a bottle of bubbly water (pelligrino) that was on special at Maxi for 1$ the same day is exagerated... Food wise, very goo.The quality, the taste and the presenation is impeccable.

Simplement délicieux du cocktail
Simplement délicieux du cocktail au dessert. La place est magnifique, la nourriture succulente et la carte des vins très intéressante à juste prix. Bravo, nous y retournerons certainement.

Lovely late night meal
We had reservations at 10 and had the resto to ourselves.
Service was amazing. Would definitely go back!

Great Food - Is It Worth The Price?
My wife and I were excited to try Ridi's Restaurant because we use to love going to this restaurant when it was Bronté's. The service was great and the wine went well with the meal. The food on a whole was very good. However, it did not have the wow factor to be demanding the price they have on the menu.
I don't mind paying that kind of price when the food is out of this world good. Do not misunderstand me please. It was very good and I was very satisfied at the end of the meal, but it was just missing that melt in your mouth taste that would put it over the top and not make you think twice about the price.
I would recommend this place to people who are celebrating an occasion like my wife and I were, but not for just any meal. Enjoy!

Innovative (yet quiet) experience
We went with another couple since, frankly, there were few tables for four at 8 PM available elsewhere on a Saturday night when you make a reservation five hours in advance. The food was beautifully presented and more innovative than we had seen in other upmarket Montreal restaurants recently. The wine list is not extensive but it has some interesting private importations in the $40-$60 range, including a bottle from Sardinia that we enjoyed.
We could not understand why the restaurant was practically empty. It is only on the second block west of guy street, and in the Meridien Hotel to boot! The Meridien alone should be able to send them more diners than the three tables (ours included) and four bar patrons who were present that night.
