Incredible first experience here. Very chic, inviting environment. The staff and owner/chef were unbelievably welcoming and helpful. The outstanding service could have only been outdone with delicious food, which it was. Great menu and for gourmet cuisine, generous portions. A must try

It was our first time and it was very good but I did find it expensive for a West Island strip mall restaurant.

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!!!

It was our first time trying Grace Bistro and we can’t wait to go back! The wait staff was super attentive, nice and made you feel right at home. Loved that we did not get rushed and had ample time to enjoy our meal. The food was outstanding and highly recommend the salmon tartar. Can’t wait to go 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.

What a great little bistro! Totally worth every penny spent there and the service was outstanding! Brittany was our waitress and she was perfect, food came out at perfect timing and even our daughter who had to eat first was smiling ear to ear at this resto. I would highly recommend this restaurant and the best waitress there, Brittany:)

Food and Service were excellent. It's rare that you can get such nice attentive service without having to head downtown. You can tell the chef takes great pride in his dishes.. The only downside for me..is that at night, you have the awfully bright ESSO gas station in your eyes. But honestly, a great dining experience for us.

Very good chef owned neighbourhood bistro.
We had the cream of roasted celery root soup, fried calamari with
dips & goat cheese crockets. They were all delicious!
We also had a few rib steaks with steak spices cooked to perfection served with shoe string onion fries, well done crispy French fries & roasted potatoes, brussel sprouts & green beans.
It was very good !!
Make sure you leave room for the banana cheese cake with caramel sauce, yummy!

This was our first time at Grace. It was snowing and a Tuesday night so relatively empty. Our waiter, Michael, was excellent and provided discreet yet attentive service. I had the burger which was perfectly cooked and tasty. My wife who is very fussy as to how her fish is cooked, had the salmon which was a generous portion and she said was cooked perfectly! Nice to have such great cuisine nearby without having to go downtown. We'll go back for sure.

Fabulous restaurant. We eat here often and have thoroughly enjoyed every meal. The waitstaff are professional, attentive, and friendly. There is an open kitchen and you can see the chef at work. The restaurant is fairly small, so it is best to make a reservation for Fridays and Saturdays especially. We prefer to come earlier in the week but it can still be busy on some of those nights as well. The food is high quality and plated well. There is usually a fish of the day and each has been quite good. On the main menu, there is salmon with a potato crust and that is wonderful. A nice bit of crunch to the top of the fish. The rib steak is terrific and perfectly seasoned. They make a wonderful burger with bacon in a brioche bun and their fries are super. Crab cakes are also very good. We don't drink but friends who have dined with us have had their featured cocktail of the day....there is always some interesting combination on the board. We have seen families with children and the kids seem very happy with their meals: Mac and cheese, chicken fingers, side caesar salads, etc. A nice treat for them I am sure.

Food , service and ambience was very good. Noise level was very loud , hard to have a nice conversation without yelling. Suggest putting some window coverings to reduce the noise level as well as the poor view of the gas station next door. Price was on the high side for the West Island. More in line with downtown pricing verses suburban location.
Overall nice local restaurant.
