At first, the menu seems limited, there aren't that many items on it, but the concept is that they change it often. Whatever is on the menu is superb, though.

As always, the food and the service were very good. The only problem was to get to the place ...
Antoine-Faucon is under renovation and you have to make a long and intricate detour to get there;
I got lost and had to do it twice!!! And to top it off, St-Charles was congested (what would usually
take me 10 minutes took me 40 minutes). Not to say that I was late for my reservation which kind
of put me in a not so good mood when I arrived. Thank God for "rose".

Great food in an assuming location, excellent service, but above all you can tell the chef loves what he does, his creations could not be this brilliant if there was no passion!

This place is a little gem! Odd location but the food is amazing. It is a bit expensive but the portions and quality justify it. It’s really delicious. The basic market salad is simple but so satisfying. The beef tartare is perfectly balanced in flavour and texture. The French fries are irresistible, perfectly crispy and not greasy. I sincerely look forward to my next meal here.

First and foremost the service was excellent. Location is a bit off the beaten path and construction didn’t make it any easier to get to, but once inside everything was very nice. Food was better than average, we both had strip loin steaks with roasted vegetables. The cook on the steak was good and meat was tender. I found the meat a little too salted for my personal taste. But overall it was better than average but no more.

This was our first visit to Grace Bistro - everything from start to finish was outstanding. Our waiter, John, took very good care of us always making sure that we had whatever we needed. He answered all our questions, explained the menu and the board. The food was creative and outstanding - we enjoyed our evening very much. We will definitely be returning to Grace Bistro. John, thank you so much for taking such good care of us. Your enthusiasm and your attention to every detail made our first visit to Grace Bistro most memorable.

We went on a Saturday night with our 15 month old daughter and loved it! We felt comfortable with our daughter there and they have a nice little kids menu. I would go back with my daughter but I would also consider it a great place to go for dinner and drinks with friends.

The service was great, the food was amazing (oysters, crab cakes, fish special, rib steak and desserts) and overall feel of the restaurant was laid back and cozy.
We definitely will be back and will most definitely order the banana cheesecake again!

Great place when you are in the neighbourhood and worth the drive if you are not. Had a wonderful dinner. If you have any allergy, stress that to the wait staff. Ceasar salad does contain fish at this restaurant. The best crab cakes I have every had! Will definitely go again!

This restaurant is what every neighbourhood eatery should aspire to be. Overall we had an excellent dining experience. The Branzino main was perfectly prepared with a nice smokey char. The octopus app was tender and flavourful as were the raspberry point oysters from Pei. We topped things off with a banana cheese cake that screamed bananas - oh so good!!! Everything was fresh and beautifully presented. The service was excellent throughout the evening - it was not overly intrusive and we never felt rushed. First time there and definitely going back soon!!!

This is a very nice and cozy bistro! Food and service are excellent. It is a nice place with easy parking. It as a bit loud but we could still have a conversation.
The menu is varied, tasty and they have a table d'hote that changes every week.
The Ceasar salad was great. Calamari was fresh and light. Steak tartare was very tasty; nice that you can request the spicy level.

This was our second time to dine at Grace Bistro. On both occasions service was impeccable. Noise level was a bit elevated, as the restaurant was full, but we were still able to carry on a conversation. My husband who can be picky at times enjoyed his oysters on the half shell and fish with a chorizo topping. My roast beet and baby kale salad as well as duck with a cherry compote were also excellent. All dishes were from their nightly specials.
We were nearly scared away from making our first reservation from a note on their website that states a reservation for two will have an hour and a half dining period on Fridays & Saturdays. On both occasions we experienced a nice relaxed dinner never feeling rushed. We will be back!

I recognize that due to our visit coinciding with Valentine's Day, a limited menu was to be expected. However, I would have appreciated an additional item or two to choose from.
As usual, the food was very flavorful and the portions were adequate. My only negative comment pertains to the mark-up on the wine. We dine out frequently and we seldom come across other restaurants with such a high mark-up ratio on their wine. As an example: Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It was the featured wine at the restaurant selling for $93. This bottle sells for $37.60 at the SAQ. I understand that their cost is probably different, but I find the mark-up too high. Will this stop me from returning, no! However, I will probably buy by the glass or skip wine altogether.
