Thanks to Lavi (manager) and Carlo (waiter), my wife and I had yet another wonderful experience at Da Vinci this weekend. This restaurant never fails to delight us - with the great food, the finely tuned interplay of the staff, and the truly caring service at the table. There are a lot of great restaurants in Montreal where the food is outstanding, but fewer and fewer have the level of elegance and professionalism that used to be the standard in fine dining; Da Vinci does not skimp on this. If you're looking for a "special occasion" restaurant, or simply a place where you'll be treated with great care and appreciation, you can't go wrong here. Oh - and the food is amazing, too.

This restaurant was poor from beginning to end. Upstairs was frigid cold, service was terrible, and the food was average for the price. Food took 45 minutes to arrive from the time ordered. Don’t waste your hard earned money

Thought portions could be a little bigger. Doesn't have to be much bigger but found all just a bit on the smaller side so would have ordered differently next time

Very romantic atmosphere. Service was outstanding. Food was excellent. I had a great rack of lamb (seven good sized ribs). My wife had a salad to start and pasta with an anchovy and olive oil sauce and clams in shell. I had the same as an appetizer and we both thought they were very good but a little dry. Easily solved by the waiter by adding a touch of olive oil. All in all, a great evening and can't wait to return.

One of my favourite restaurants in the world. It is hard to overstate how good the kitchen, the food and the service are here. We've been back on every visit to Montreal, and book months in advance. Totally recommend.

Carlos is amazing. Ask for him!

The restaurant was in a nice location, and had a nice ambiance but the food was expensive and mediocre. I would much rather go to chinatown or cote des neiges area and have a nice filling, tasty meal.

I ordered the lobster and shrimp and it was just ok. Did not taste bad, but nothing to recommend. My wife ordered a lamb pasta and that was also just sustenance. Not anything special unfortunately.

Perhaps this restaurant is catered to a richer clientele. The people at the restaurant certainly seemed like a particular bunch.

If you would like to pay $40/plate, still feel hungry and be surrounded by rich snooty people I highly recommend. The service was fantastic though so I do appreciate the staff.

We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated when the restaurant was half full, very bad coordination between waiters and manager. Wrong food was served, had to go back to the kitchen. Good wine list, but no wine cheaper than 50$ Food was decent, but not as good as expected!

Simply fantastic! A superb dining experience that can be catered to your romantic evening or a quick Pre-Habs game. The rack of lamb is the best in Montreal ... no joke! The renos are clean, fresh and smart. The service is as excellent as the food. This is a can’t miss! They will quickly establish themselves as the best new old spot. If you liked the old Da Vinci, you will love the new and improved Da Vinci!

I had not visited Da Vinci's in 30 years! But it was excellent then and stupendous this time. This is an elegant restaurant, where you are made to feel important. The food is traditional authentic Italian and the wine list is more than adequate. The experience, on the whole, was almost magical. A great time was had by all!

An incredible find in Montreal. The staff was amazing and food was spectacular. We had appetizers followed by risotto , then each person in the group of four had something different to eat and no one was disappointed.

First off, the food was very good. However, the pushy waiter/host/salesman made for an uncomfortable dining experience. We had a table of 8 and he kept trying to just bring us various dishes to try, but he was less than transparent when we asked what this would cost. It felt like we were dealing with a car salesman - he wanted to engage with us and create a great experience, but was just way too pushy on the upsell. The end of the meal was particularly uncomfortable as he reminded us 3 times that the bill did not include tip and stood over our shoulder as we each input our tip into the card reader. I have never experienced this level of pushiness at a restaurant. It’s a shame because the food really was excellent.

Absolutely incredible! I wish I could give more than five stars. For starters the restaurant is beautiful and was recently remodeled. The service is impeccable and better than any other restaurant I’ve ever been to in Montreal. The menu is extensive and offers a variety of options for any palate. We followed along with all the recommendations and from start to finish it was a wonderful gastronomic experience. Words will never be enough so if you get the chance to dine at this restaurant - take it. You will not regret it. I will definitely be back in the near future. This is officially one of my Montreal favorites. Special thanks to Lavi, Carlo and Vince for your hospitality and for such an incredible night.
