Très bon accueil et bons conseils des serveurs. Une légère déception sur le plat principal qui a probablement été raté (j'ai du mal à croire que la sauce aux artichauts puisse être aussi liquide et peu goûteuse); mais les autres étaient très bons
Tout est délicieux et le service est impeccable.
Nous avons fait la découverte d’un nouveau restaurant familial avec un excellent service . Les plats sont excellents et de bonne portion également. Nous avons été charmés par la petite Stella qui vient nous faire un petit coucou.on y retournera ces certain. Merci
It was great food and amazing service!
Fantastic! Great food . Owned by locals. Always a pleasure !
I felt really pressured when I tried to order dessert. The cauliflower/shrimp soup did not work at all.
Service lent ! (Nette impression qu’il manquait de staff au service et à la cuisine).
Air climatisé qui ne fournit pas à la tâche ! Tout le monde transpire et s’évente. Pas assez de menus (repas et carte des vins) pour tous les clients ! (Ordinaire comme situation).
Personne nous a demandé si ns voulions un apéro.
Entrées excellentes ! Plats principaux (pâtes) fades.
Beau décor ! Serveurs gentils.
This is an excellent restaurant, with a good variety of italian dishes, prepared with fresh ingredients for an affordable price. As everywhere in Montreal alcohol is not cheap but they have a good selection of wines. The staff is definitely dedicated, attentive and friendly, which add to the overall experience. I will definitely come back again.
Great food, great service. Will be back for sure!
Charming restaurant with a bit of a European flavour
Toujours excellent, service impeccable et ambiance parfaite pour déguster! Mon resto préféré à Montréal!
Great stlye fresh food! creative and origin classic north and south Italy..
Freshly made cannoli and original with chocolate and pistachio!
I shall be returning without a doubt!
I am proud to see Chefs still working with passion ,love of this trade!
Thank you to Chef of Barcola restaurant and his entire team.
Chef Pina Baldassarre
Love Barcola always great
We enjoyed a unique northern Italian cuisine and this tiny, cozy restaurant in the center of the Mile End area. The food was delicious and quite reasonable for a place of this quality.
Excellent as always! I always enjoy the dining experience at Barcola. Even in Montreal with exceptional offer it’s a challenge to find a cuisine that can compete. Congratulations to chef!
J’adore les menus découvertes axés sur une région particulière de l’italie.
I was disappointed in both food and service after reading reviews.
The ambiance was great though.
We were halfway through our appetizer
( best part of the meal) before we got our wine.
Food was excellent as always. Waitress was knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful with our wine selection. Recommend this quaint restaurant for a special tête a tête or just a regular evening out.
Simply lovely. A sweet sophisticated space with utterly delicious food. The sword fish with grilled figs was sublime.
I took the rapini and sausage pasta and it was simply amazing.
The menu changes daily...cant wait to taste something new next time
Malheureusement sur la terrasse, bruyant (camions et autos) et odeur de diesel au passage des camions; préférable à l'intérieur s'ils acceptent de baisser la musique car plus calme et plus frais!
One of my best restaurant in Montreal.... always creative and delicious!
Always a treat to return
Asparagus, Parmesan Fondu, Pancetta first course was especially delicious
Ordered barley risotto and I must say it was perfect, however the arugula salad we ordered was also excellent but we noticed that at other tables there was a huge difference in the amount of cheese , we hardly had any but other tables had a generous amount
Les entrées étaient très bonnes, le dessert au chocolat divin. Superbe ambiance, musique excellente et grande qualité dans la service, rien à redire. Par contre nos plats principaux étaient franchement décevants, le mien goûtait le sel et rien d'autre et les autres plats étaient piquant mais sans goût. Vraiment très très loin des critiques que j'avais lu....et j'étais étonnée et déçue, d'autant plus que la facture pour 4 personnes incluant 2 bière et 2 verres de vin sans plus, dépassait le 200$, pour le rapport qualité/prix c'est raté. Je voulais sincèrement adopter ce restaurant, mais je ne peux pas et ça ne m'amuse pas du tout de faire une telle critique.
was very impressed to receive the dish which I suggested and the dish which was gnocci, it was one of the best I have ever had, hope to try more dishes from the region of friuli venezia giulia
This is not my first visit at Barcola Bistro . The food is always good , fresh ingredients , varied menu . The atmosphere is casual and the service is excellent !
What more can you ask for ?
Terrific dining experience. Fixe Prix with selections from the chef on Thursdays. Paired wine. Everything was thoroughly divine.
Having read the other reviews, we thought that we may have found a good go to Italian restaurant near our home. The menu is very limited, with hardly any dishes that you would expect to see on an Italian menu. However, the dishes we ordered were tasty and expertly prepared. The service was excellent.
We recommend going here, but check the menu beforehand to be sure that there are items on the menu that you will enjoy.
Barcola dishes are based on fresh ingredients. They are simple, elegant and most of all delicious. Portions are satisfying.
Staff not overly friendly, food came before drinks, food was mediocre, not enough seating space (squished at our table and one of our chairs was constantly being bumped)
Menu is limited and heavy on carbs but overall food is excellent.
Menu is limited. Items we got were ok, but not great. Food seemed fresh and good quality. I had fish (dorado) that seemed very fresh. One guest had an orzo dish that looked like oatmeal--did not look very appealing. Made a res and then got there on time and was told we would have to wait 10-15 min. Then they gave us a table that was the only one available-- they said it was meant for a later party. We felt we were taking someone else's table.
I am never disappointed. Simple ingredients prepared beautifully and the wine pairing makes the experience even more delightful. I highly recommend. Cant wait to go back!
Excellent petit resto! Bouffe authentiquement italienne.Et choix de très bons vins.
Très bon restaurant. Le rapport qualité prix est bon. Service correct, le serveur est de bon conseil.
Le limoncello n'est pas assez froid à mon goût mais dans l'ensemble, c'était une bonne soirée !
Congenial atmosphere, friendly and attentive service, tasty dinner. People in restaurant clearly enjoying themselves.
I am French, live in Dallas and have a place in Montreal. I can't believe that we have found this place just as I am closing my Montreal office and Outremont apartment. This place is fantastic. The food amazing, fresh, brilliantly prepared and the music selection is simply perfect and profound. The service is also flawless. Had I discovered Barcola earlier, this would be my regular go-to neighborhood place. The salad, the shrimp, the gnocchi, the chocolate cake and the wine by the glass' selection... you get the idea... a gem! I will come back to Montreal from time to time and will not skip this incredible cozy place.
Endroit très sympathique et tous les serveurs sont accueillant et souriant. Pâtes maison goûteuse, salade de roquette aux poires excellente et un excellent dessert maison au chocolat.
Très bel ambiance chaleureux
All went well, the place is cozy.
The night we were there we were told that it was a fixed menu.
And vegetarian. I would suggest that this be more evident when making reservation online too.
Don’t get me wrong it was good.
