Following a splendid group dinner earlier in the week (International Wine &Food Society), I decided to bring my wife to taste some of the dishes I had with the group. She was very impressed with the foie gras and the unusual mushroom soup with an egg in it. My meal was OK but not memorable. The service from Mathieu could not have been better, the noise level was perfect and we were very pleased with our wines. Parking in the area requires much patience, but it’s worth the time and effort. We intend to return during the fireworks competition as Kitchenette is well situated for viewing.

We decided to try this place as a last minute option as it's nearby. We were shocked at how delicious and perfectly portioned everything was. This is a state-of -the -art dining experience and the fact that it's small with the chef cooking right behind the bar makes it feel like a cozy dinner at a friend's home. Would recommend to anyone for a date and will definitely go back again. One of my new favorite places in MTL.

Very friendly and professional staff.
We had the tasting menu, 5 coarse's at $45.00 it was GREAT !!
Herb crusted deep fried soft yolk egg, poached salmon with ginger mousse over seaweed salad, grilled octopus with saffron risotto & chorizo sausage, glazed pheasant with a grain & potato dauphin style and to end with a sublime chocolate soufflé cake.
Every thing was delicious !!!!

This French restaurant is definitely worth trying! We had their 5-service degustation meal with 2 entrées (the egg "mollet" is outstanding), 2 main courses and 1 fabulous chocolate/praline lava cake!
The service is great, very nice waiter and the timing is perfect: you don't wait too long between each plate.
Go, go, go!

Kitchenette used to be an ok-foodie destination but new management has changed the nature of the restaurant...while keeping the old name. I thought i was going to the "old" place, and i did not realize I had booked at a stale/over-priced french cuisine restaurant. It unfortunately cost us a nice evening. Prices are high, food was well below-average, and ambiance horrible. Cannot imagine they survive much longer, place was "dead' on a Friday night, and I was the sucker.

Every morsel was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Four of us dined and each of us "ooh-ed" and "aah-ed" with every bite. The smoked trout appetizer was a hit. The scallops entrée was yums. Staff were attentive. Portions were perfectly sized. The wine list is fairly priced and the cocktails were ample and different.The restaurant has a very cool vibe. We'll be back!

This place was built for cool weather. Unfortunately I was there when I was hot. The kitchen keeps the whole place warm, and that's a detriment when it's already hot out.

They triesd very hard! We had a lovely, not exceptional, dinner here while visiting from out of town. Some of the food was very, very good (gazpacho, chocolate desert, wine), and some was mediocre at best (beef filet). The atmosphere and personal attention from staff was lovely but it took a very long time to get the check and pay and leave (they were not busy). I would go back and recommend knowing it may be hit or miss taste-wise.

Kitchenette was absolutely one of the best food experiences we have ever had. Tucked along the waterfront on the edge of the village it was a quiet unassuming restaurant that held many surprises. The duck terrine amuse bouche was delicious as was the duck fois gras starter both of which were also beautifully presented. And then came the steak and scallops and the tomahawk quebec lamb shank. Both were beautiful, with sauces that made us lick our fingers, the meat falling off the lamb shank, the accompaniments perfect in their choices and preparation. you must get the lamb shank if nothing else it was life changing. Paired with some amazing wine and followed by a local cheese plate we could not have asked for anything more. It was perfection.

Quite simply, this was the best meal I've had in two years and without question the best dining I experienced in my five days (and many meals) in Montreal. The setting itself is quietly elegant, comfortable, clean, sleek. My server, Matthieu was absolutely fantastic - friendly, without being too friendly, thoroughly on top of every element of the meal, delighted when I took obvious pleasure in what I was tasting. Every aspect of the meal was perfection itself. In fact, I haven't tasted such sublime flavors since dining at Le Jules Verne in Paris. The amuse-bouche was lovely, the bread - one whole grain, the other a petit pain - perfect, served with a fine tapenade and butter. The foie gras, served with a compote de pommes was perfectly presented with warm brioche. Every bite sublime. Then, the dourade .... over a bed of creamy white beans. Ecstatic is the only word that comes to mind. I should add, also, that every plate was artfully arranged, with a dabbling of micro greens here and there and with tremendous attention to detail. Dessert was a gorgeous creme brûlée.. Though the wines by the glass were limited to two whites, two reds, each was a really lovely choice and worked perfectly with my meal. I really cannot say enough about how wonderful this restaurant is and how fortunate I feel to have found it. My only regret is that I don't live in Montreal, because if I did, I'd dine at Kitchenette every week... it's THAT good.

It was a great experience. They treated me well. It was walkable from where I was staying. The only caveat was that I was not aware that they did not take American Express. This posed a problem as I had to go to my hotel to get my visa. If prepayment on Open Table had been required I would have had a better experience. I will give them another try when back in Montreal. They were not pretentious but knew their stuff about food, wine and providing a tasting menu experience.
