    Beautiful setting. Tasty appetizers. Enticing cocktails. BUT - oh, the drama! The wait staff is exceedingly polite (thank god they got over their holier-than-thou attitude of years past), but something is amiss between the kitchen and the people on the floor. We watched mishandled orders on all sides, then sat for 45 minutes after our appetizers had been cleared (not served, cleared!) before we finally gave up on our main courses ever arriving. Half in the bag from having only had cocktails, wine, salad and bread, we nevertheless had a wonderful evening. But waking at 5 a.m. starving was a nasty surprise.

    Beautiful place if weather permits roof and doors to be open as that night it's amazing. Food was okay. Service was AWFUL. Never spotted a manager. Angelo our waiter could hardly be bothered to stop flirting long enough to give us the time of day and no one stopped to ask if things were ok. For the money there are plenty of other places to go in Montreal.

  • Disappointing Meal
    CatamountVIP
    Dined on 6/8/2014
    The night we dined at Bice, the restaurant had two private parties. Service was deficient from start to finish. The food as described on menu appeared to be creative but was not executed well. Prices were excessive when compared with the quality. Only plus is the outdoor patio. There are many better Italian alternatives in Montreal. .

    Dined on 6/5/2014
    This was probably the best meal that we had while in Montreal for the race, but we were disappointed for several reasons: 1. Raucous - large parties were seated on top of each other and it was really loud 2. Cold - Thursday night of the weekend was cold, but the door was opened, so that people could be seen or so the place could be more inviting (who knows); even with a distracting heater that blew the table clothes around, it was cold 3. Price - the menu listed online was more than doubled I understand this was a special event weekend, so in some respects, all bets are off...but the food was out of this world.

  • Great food, mediocre service
    BlackRose
    Dined on 5/21/2014
    The food was delicious, the wine list was extensive, but it was hard to enjoy when the waiters were rude, confused about our order and messed up your bill (they charged us $9 for tea even though it was supposed to be included in the table d'hote) and something that they "forgot" to mention was that if I asked for plain regular water, that meant a $8.50 bottle of water.

    For what they charge you would expect to get excellent food with fantastic service. the food was mediocre and the waiters were good. The only exception was the maitre d. I asked him for a quiet table, he decided to put me in the path of the staff and before we sat I asked if he could give us a more discrete table and he takes me to a better table and drops the menus on the plate and doesn't even pull the chair out for my lady friend. Not 5 star for sure. He was also wearing a hoodie!?! This place was highly recommended but I got to say in Montreal there are better places.

    Bice is one of Montreal best places to eat. As the restaurant scene changes and chefs are always trying to out do one another with exotic foods sometimes you just want great Italian food and Bice is that place. Everything on the menu is good but there a few standouts...the grilled octopus, the vongole, to name few.

    Dined on 9/25/2013
    Food was good lunch table hote was 25$ which is a good price, but the restaurant was almost empty. Maybe that's because the waiter looked like we were bothering him. Never saw him smile, and I eat out a lot, and I never thought that I would not consider a restaurant simply due to the staff, but I am. maybe I'm not the only one not wanting to return due to the lack of personalized service. There are plenty of good restaurants in montreal. So when I see a waiter not able to smile, and when we ask him questions he answers but doesn't seem to care, I think it doesn't give a good package.

    The food was very good, although overpriced. This would all be fine, except for the indifferent service. We were not made to feel welcome, probably because we did not order a $500 dollar bottle of wine. With all the fine restaurants in town, this one needs an attitude adjustment.

    Bice is no longer, i guess the owners either sold or gave up their association with the Bice family of restaurants. So while the food was very good those diners expecting to go to Bice should be forewarned and Open Table should change the listing. we drove around the block twice and were ready to give up when we decided to run in to another spot to ask.

    The tuna tartare and wild mushroom tagliatelle were delicious, but everything else was just ok. The lobster spaghetti was very acidic. I went the weekend of the F1 and they jacked up the prices a lot. $45 dollars for a regular pasta is too much imo. The service was good, but again, nothing special. I think one can have an enjoyable dinner there as long as one does not mind getting overpriced food.

    We've been cooped up for an excruciatingly long winter, what better way to open up the spring season than at the terrace of Bice ) now called Beatrice). Had salad as an appetizer and fish as main. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious as always. The food never disappoints. I'm sure we'll be returning over th summer months.
