The restaurant was one of the nicest places I ate at in Montreal. Everything from the food to the service was top notch.

I chose Verses for a dinner with my wife to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. Having dined there several times previously with my brother I knew the ambiance was intimate, the menu was delightful and the staff very attentive. I arranged to have flowers delivered to our table and the evening turned out to be the wonderful, romantic experience I had hoped.

We had a very good meal. Waiter seemed to have forgotten us mid-way in the meal and we had to locate him to get our check. Notices other waiters giving much more attention at other tables. Would not refrain us from going back though

The best restaurant !!!!
I loved Verses!!!! I went for my 50th birthday dinner and I couldn't have been more pleased. Outstanding menu, awesome service and great ambiance. They have valet parking which is really awesome because it's next to impossible to find parking near St. Paul's Street. If you want fine food in a lovely atmosphere with super service you can't beat Verses!!

One of the Best
Without question this is one of the best meals I have experienced. The foi gras appetizer was exquisite. Melt in your mouth. Filet Mignon was Lean and perfectly cooked with a mushroom duxelles and Cabernet Demi. Fiddleheads as garnish. Also had a black cod which was the chef's selection. Dessert was a trio of summer treats. A "creamsicle" , mini banana ice cream sandwich garnished with a white chocolate ribbon and a S'more. Excellent presentation and subtle tastes. Wine was superb. Our server was a true professional; knowledgeable and unobtrusive. Atmosphere in back was romantic.Front more lively.Chose this restaurant based on fellow Open Table reviewers. Thank you. Add me to the list of those who recommend Verses without hesitation.

In a city with excellent food, Verses in a wonder. The food is clever, thoughtful, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked.
I had three starters, each more delicious than the one before and an excellent bottle of wine. I was eating alone and the service was perfect.

Excellent find in Vieux Montreal
Went here for lunch while visiting Old Montreal. The menu offered an excellent variety. Every course was outstanding and the service was attentive but discrete. Highly recommended!

Food is very good. Service is good but very slow. From the time we sat down until the time we got our main course was 90 minutes.....and we were 2 people.

Very attentive service. We
Very attentive service. We had brunch reservations for 4 people and they sat us at a high table with our feet dangling. Not so comfortable for a 50+ group including an 80-year old man. They opened another section of the restaurant so we could sit comfortably.
We intended to take the buffet in addition to our breakfast but we all changed our minds as the servings were so copious. The scrambled eggs were delicious.
On point to note, which is not indicated online: service of the brunch menu on weekends starts at 11:30am. Only the breakfast menu is available earlier.

Verses is exceptional!
We had the good fortune to dine at Verses during our long weekend stay in Old Montreal. The entire experience was exceptionally good. The servers were very professional, courteous and friendly, and appreciated our attempts at speaking French. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The ambience was much a part of the Old Montreal experience. Next time we hope to be able to sit on the upper patio, but the rain prohibited that from happening this time. Verses should be on everyone's list for a dining experience.

The food and service were excellent. We really enjoyed the whole experience from cocktails at the bar the dining in the dining room. Quiet elegance and great service. They really seemed happy that we were there and made us feel special and welcomed.

If you are looking for a quiet
If you are looking for a quiet great romantic dinner in Old Montreal , Verses is a perfect choice. The food is marvelous and all ingredients are fresh and local , if at all possible. One aspect we loved about the restaurant was the friendliness. Don't get me wrong-this is a high end restaurant , but it is comfortable and welcoming. The wine list has good choices in a wide range of prices. When I asked our server about 3 different wines , he recommended the least expensive (and local) wine - which was great! We also had a great local iced cider for dessert. He wrote down both labels for us and we bought them later at a store.

Incredibly creative flavors
Our dinner at Verses rates as one of the most creative and beautifully prepared meals ever. Flavor profiles of every dish were amazingly unique and delicious. Service was attentive and pleasant without being over the top. Price tag was a bit jarring, but probably not inappropriate for the quality of the total experience. Really outstanding all around.

This is where we had our wedding
This is where we had our wedding reception in 2011. We went back today to celebrate my birthday as well as our wedding anniversary. The food was exquisite, the atmosphere very relaxed, and the service exceptional. There is also a valet service available so no worries about finding that elusive parking spot in Old Montreal. The attached hotel, The Nelligan, is a boutique hotel and is a fantastic place to spend the night.

Very Nice Experience in Old Montrea
We went on a Saturday night. The restaurant has valet parking available but getting to the street in front of the restaurant on a busy Saturday night is trying....many pedestrians and one way streets...I would suggest taking a cab or walking.
The ambiance is beautiful....the windows were open to the street and the temperature that night was just perfect (early August). The service was top notch. I ordered a scallop appetizer that was delicious and the bread provided was delicious. I had a Shiraz that was with the game hen entree that I ordered. I was a little disappointed in the entree. The presentation was magnificent, but I think it was a little bland in taste and needed more color on the plate. The dessert trio was delicious.

A Romantic Dinner in Old Town
Verses ambience was nice (dim lighting and nice intimate seating). It is part of Hotel Nelligan. Food was very good and fresh though my halibut was not very flavorful. My husband had the filet mignon which he enjoyed very much. Did not have room for dessert.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
This chef is as good as Thomas Keller. We shared the North Atlantic Princesse scallop ceviche, corn purée with
turmeric, almond crumble, seasonal pickles, black garlic,togarashi and were sorry, we each should have gotten our own, They were so good. For the main course we each had fish. A Butter poached halibut, pea and herb broth, lemon ricotta
gnocchi, Chioggia, pancetta. OMG delicious. My husband had Black cod filet, artichoke barigoule with saffron mussels, yuzu
sabayon. It also was fabulous. For dessert we shared the Summer camp, manderine and vanilla creamsicle, cashews s'mores,
and banana ice cream sandwich. again we should have gotten 2. The service was outstanding thanks to our waiter William (american name) .Wines are yum

Octopus Carpaccio and Summer Camp!
We had a scrumptious meal at Verses, highlighted by an octopus carpaccio appetizer that was meaty and flavorful. The crowning achievement of the night however was a dessert dubbed "Summer Camp" that included three delicacies - a mini creamsicle, a tiny ice cream sandwich and a s'more. Delightful but not too much!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thanks for a great evening
Verses was one of the two restaurants we selected for our weekend in Montreal and they did not disappoint. The food was great - the menu was creative and they did a great job presenting each course and guiding us through the evening. We had a great corner table looking out onto St Paul and could not have asked for more. The dessert was one of the most creative and enjoyable I have had in years.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our dinner was absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed a special aged rib-eye and a delicious wine recommended by our server, Izabelle.

Un seul mot....sublime!
Service attentionné et sympathique. La nourriture simplement délicieuse, belle présentation, combinaison de saveurs surprenants et réussis.
Un beau détail....nous fêtions notre anniversaire de mariage...on nous a offert une petite coupe de champagne et un petit dessert avec des étincelles :-) ...beau geste...
Je recommande ce resto sans hésiter.

I have a taste for the finer
I have a taste for the finer things in life, but not the necessary the budget. We tried the Verse for the 'Taste Montreal' week - with a prix fixe of $39 for three courses, It was the the perfect way to indulge our sophisticated palate without spending a fortune. Everything was Excellent! The decor was beautiful. Service was really good, the food was delicious. They even have a list of wine at $40 which is good for a family man on a budget.
