    As a Chef I always look for the restaurant that other Chefs recommend as opposed to the most popular. This restaurant was reviewed and recommended by both, upon further review I found out the Chef was competing in the Bocuse D' Or for Canada. Atmosphere was good, food great but a little heavy for the 7 course tasting menu in my opinion. Service was great until they got busy and the level went down, would of elevated it to the next level if service held steady. As far as the food some absolute winners were the Black Olive and Goat Cheese macaroons for Amuse. Foie Gras mousse with apple jelly and smoked powder, would go back just for that! Overall I would recommend highly...

    It was our second visit at "Chez L'Epicier". I would recommend it to anybody. We had the "Menu degustation" with the wine pairing. In Montreal, we had diner in most of the five star restaurants and this one is on top of our list. The wine pairing is really the best, especially for the price. Great time, great service, GREAT food! If there is one thing to consider is the fact that the noise level can be high. Either arrive early or late to avoid the crowd and the noise level.

    This is one of the greatest restaurants of all time. Parsnip milk soup. That is all.

    C'est la 1ere fois que je suis déçue de ce restaurant. Notre table était très mal située malgré le fait que j'avais fait une réservation en demandant spécifiquement une belle table pour notre anniversaire de mariage; elle était située à moitié dans le corridor entre les 2 salles. Nous avions pris le menu dégustation 7 services et encore une déception. Le seul plat qui était savoureux fut le potage de courges. Les 2 mini bâtonnets de gnocchis goutaient le tofu, la morue fumée goûtait le brûlée et ainsi que les 2-3 pois mange-tout qui l'accompagnait, le steak était difficile à couper au couteau et la présentation des plats laissait à désirer. Quelle déception quand on nous a servi le dessert qui était une tranche de courge avec de la crème glacée...ce n'est pas un dessert !!! Vraiment, ce n'est pas un restaurant où nous allons retourner.

    We were 2 & ordered both dishes @ each course. Wine pairing with main course. 'Amuse bouche’ macaroon, goat cheese,olive tepanade & Kir with Quebec apple cider,maple & white cranberry. NICE! Local & homemade products. Warm rolls-regular & maple butter. Squash velouté was delicious as was the smoked trout filet . We shared (additional) fois gras with pear; nice & creamy. Sea Bass fillet with herb polenta, over lobster bisque(?). Beef shoulder in Cointreau marinade. REALLY good. Dessert ‘Carpaccio of apple’, good & refreshing. ‘Chocolate brownie tempura’ was interesting. Presentation was lovely. Professional & friendly service. We left with a bag of homemade marsh mellow. We were very happy with our visit. Will definitely return.

    Nous avons pris le repas dégustation, celui-ci était intéressant, bien construit... et plein de surprises. Combinaison intéressante et dynamique de flaveurs et de texture. Bien stable.

    Probably the best food and service we have ever had! We had the 7 course tasting menu paired with wine. It was superb. The pairings were fantastic and the service was over the top without being too in your face. We have travelled all over the world and ate in many restaurants but this was spectacular.
