A word from Restaurant Carte Blanche
Carte Blanche is the new leader of Montreal’s Bistronomie trend and is now a BRING YOUR OWN WINE establishment.
Lunch is bistro style with a pre-fixed menu at unbeatable value. The chef and owner (elected 2010 Chef of the Year by the Society of Chefs) will welcome you in the evening with a more elaborate selection of fine cuisine.
All is served in a contemporary decor (finalist at the 2006 Creativity Montreal Design contest) and relaxing atmosphere.
Carte Blanche is ideal for romantic diners as well as business meetings. The restaurant can also be reserved for cocktails, happenings, group lunch or dinner.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great and probably best small French restaurant in this neighborhood. Orginal and tasty meals and it is now a BYO wine restaurant; high quality/price ratio."

  • "Beautiful restaurant. Vert attentive staff couldn't be more accommodating. Apologized for having no English menus. Hey we ARE in Quebec Gave me dessert to take home in their own dish. Said that would make me want to come back to return it. No problem there We were 14 and EVERYONE. loved it "

  • "Superbe service courtois et amical Le risotto un peu trop pâteux mais leur tatin est excellent. Cuisson du boeuf parfaite mais sauces légèrement trop fades. Breuvages un peu cher. C'est surtout l'ambiance qui fait le charme du resto. Excellent resto de quartier pour sortir entre amis."

  • "We went on a Friday night. We tried their special menu "martinique gourmande". The food was excellent. The service was very friendly. The local is small, nicely decorated. A great place."

  • "The menu suggested was inspired by spices and textures of the creole culture. The service was efficient and friendly. A good address to add to your favorites."

  • "Those who ordered appetizers didn't get their soup/salad which should have been included with their Table d'Hote. Also, they were charged for their coffee which should have been included. What a rip. It's a shame I won't be going back despite the food being exceptional."

  • "We had a lovely dinner here on a Saturday night in Montreal, we were one of only a couple tables there on a gorgeous summer evening. Our waitress was nice and was polite enough to use English with us (although there were a couple language issues, no big deal). I found her just slightly pushy, although she did steer us in the right direction eventually. We had a divine Foie Gras appetizer (we only eat this about once every couple years) followed by duck breast and steak. We both found our meat just slightly overcooked, but since she didn't ask what temperature we wanted them, we did not complain. We had (erroneously?) assumed they would both be cooked medium-rare. This place is worth a try, but we won't seek it out on our next trip."

  • "Nourriture excellente de l'entrée au dessert. Beau choix table d'hôte et prix très raisonnable. Service attentif à inscrire sur notre liste de bons restos sympatiques qui contribue à la réputation gastronomique de Montréal."

  • "Quelle belle découverte! Ce restaurant est tout simplement un trésor caché qu'il faut absolument découvrir. Le chef sait plus que quiconque préparer le tartare de boeuf qui est un incontournable. Le service par Philippe est impeccable. Un must!"

  • "Endroit tres chalereux avec un acceuil tres agréble. UN grand choix, avec notament des tables d'hote le midi et le soir a un prix raisonable. Des portions généreuses. Une tres bonne table a montréal. Je reviendrais!"

  • "La nourriture était vraiment bonne en particulier le potage à la citrouille et le jarret de sanglier. Très bonne ambiance! Le service était impeccable! C'est sûr que je vais y retourner!!!"

  • "Not really a great experience and not the best quality/price ratio. We tried the boar and the sweetbreads but the sauces were too much sugary. Good but not excellent!"

  • "We ate there during Montreal's Restaurant Week. Everything was well-prepared, and tasty, and the visual presentations of the food were excellent. We tried the seal, which was a first for us, and it was really good. We'll gladly return to this restaurant."

  • "The restaurant Carte Blanche was a fantastic experience. We visited it during the event Montreal a table, and we had a special menu. The food was delicious. And the service was excellent. I recommand this restaurant. It's a excellent adress in Montreal."

  • "My spouse and I ordered the same appetizer, with the foie gras; it was far and away the absolute best appetizer I have ever had. The main courses (arctic char and roast beef) were delicious and the desserts mouth watering. The restaurant was packed tight; this was a little uncomfortable and was the source of much too high a volume of noise. But the food overcame the nuisances; it was impeccable and the service as well was superb - attentive, prompt and caring. We are from out of town but would definitely return to the Carte Blanche on a future trip to Montreal."

  • "We discovered the restaurant with the Montreal a table festival, The table d'hote was very affordable ! The dishes were very good, we didn't wait a long time between dishes, we arrived at 6:15 and it was quiet until 7:30 - 8:00, after that we could still here ourselves without trying hard. The decoration is great : simple as a gastronomic restaurant should be, but with a bit of fantasy, And most of all : our waitress was adorable !"

  • "En arrivant à La Carte Blanche, j'ai pris connaissance des nombreuses distinctions reçues pour cet établissement au cour des dernières années. Quelle fut ma déception par la suite... Malgré un bon service, la quasi-totalité des plats laissaient à désirer. Risotto trop dur, champignons manquant de fraicheur, mauvaise cuisson du steak, etc. J'y étais dans le cadre de Montréal à Table et j'espère bien pour les propriétaires que tous les convives présents n'ont pas eu droit au même traitement, cet événement visant à faire connaître les divers restos montréalais aux yeux du grand public."

  • "This is really a neighbourhood gem. In this part of town where all restaurants are just average, this was a great find. I was there for the MTL à table menu. The lobster bisque which they started us with was a bit disastrous. It wasn't warm enough and it was way too watery. The main course, on the other hand, (I had the seal filet) was delicious and the dessert (cheesecake-style pear and maple) was definitely the best part of the meal. Service was great and the ambiance is a good chance of pace from other restaurants in the area. Not one of my top picks for Montreal, but good nonetheless."
