Da Vinci Ristorante
A memorable birthday celebrationI knew right away that I was booking this place to celebrate my 30th birthday! The food is superb, the decor and ambience is romantic. The only thing that I must comment on is the wait staff; tonight, I did not like how our table was seated next to the kitchen (we were a group of 10 and they gave us a large square table) because our view was a waiter folding napkins, loud converstation (complaining) between other waiters about how this summer is going to be hot (lol) and that the people who ate during Grand Prix weekend were suckers for paying food items that were quadrupled the price! Perhaps I am a detail-oriented person, but, overall, please visit this resto for the food and experience.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food disappointing serviceFood was delicious but service was long and disorganized. I was disappointed as great service was their claim to fame. Food was well prepared and presented.
Too many staff were involved at our table, so no continuity in what we were ordering. Also got 1 extra bottle of wine on our bill. They fixed that mistake as soon as we noticed it.
I will try one more time to change my perception of the place, as the food was really very good.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousAmazing experience, one of the places where I've eaten best in Montreal. A bit pricey, but definitely worth every dollars. Very good service too!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectJust perfect!!!!! Everything was spectacular!!!!! World class italian restaurant4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Outstanding*****We arrived early for our reservation, but they provided a table immediately, and the phenomenal service began from the moment that we arrived.
The combinations of tastes that the chef utilized was awesome, and the presentation was enticing.
Our server was beyond perfect in all aspects, offering tips and suggestions throughout the dinner.
The owner himself, frequented all the tables throughout the restaurant and genuinely cared about everything constantly.
Definitely a highly recommended spot and will absolutely be on the return reservation list in the very near future2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were 3 guests celebratingWe were 3 guests celebrating a 60th birthday. The whole meal was flawless from the plate of cheese and sausage as a mise en bouche to the vanilla cake and mini canolis for desert. As appetizers we had a roquette salad that was chosen not to overstuff the guest who had ordered the ossobuco as a main course. We also had the scallops that were seared perfectly and the fried calamari that can easily be shared by two guests. The calamari were fried without being soggy or rubbery. The ossobuco comes with a risotto and a spoon to eat the bone marrow. We also ordered the cavatelli that were aldente a great combination with mushrooms and pancetta. The stuffed shrimps were as delicious as appealing. Special mention for the bread and Sicilian grissini1/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
