It was a quiet Friday night but we were there I think after the rush. Doors were open with no air-conditioning so it was a little bit warm but it was nice to get fresh air in the summers day. We had the tasting menu which was more than enough food. Interesting choices for sure. On my return I think I would like to try something from the main menu. A great little French experience.

As usual, food and service were up to the high standards we expect from this restaurant. The only negatives were the parking difficulties which nearly caused us to go elsewhere, and the lack of air conditioning which initially made the room uncomfortable on a very hot night. But the parking is a serious problem that must be resolved, especially on the weekend

Mes amies et moi sommes allés à la Kitchenette le 26 juin dernier. J'ai dit au téléphone que mon amie est végétarienne et il a dit qu'il n'y avait aucun problème et qu'ils pourrait l'accommodé. Lorsque nous sommes arrivée, le cuisiner est venu demander à mon amie si elle était végétalienne ou végétarienne. (Mon amie ne croyait pas qu'il pouvais offrir un menu végétalien, voila pourquoi elle ne me l'avait pas mentionnée pour la réservation). Une fois la proposition, mon amie à dit qu'elle aimerais un menu dégustation végétalien. Le cuisiner à accepter l'offre, mais celle-ci aurait du refuser et proposer le menu végétarien à la place. Nous avons trouver que le menu offert ne valait absolument pas le prix et n'était aucunement à la hauteur. Les plats était trop simple et pareil. On retrouvais dans un des plats 2 aliments avec du soya, c'était trop salée. Le dessert de tarte déconstruite contenait des carrés trop dur à mâchés. Mon amie vegan et moi avons retrouver des cheveux dans les plats. Bref, nous n'avons pas vraiment aimer notre expérience. Par contre, nous avons trouver le personnel très courtois. L'accords mets et vin valait vraiment la peine. Tout au long de la réservation, le personnel est rester très patient et sympathique. C'est bien dommage que notre expérience s'est avéré ainsi.

One of the finest meals we have ever had. The owners Matthew and Jeremy were fantastic. The food was out of this world. It is a must if you are in Montréal.

I am happy that I found Kitchenette when I was searching for a restaurant in Montréal's Gay Village. Mathieu, who owns the restaurant with his husband, was extremely warm and gracious. I was surprised to be greeted by name when we arrived! My friend and I enjoyed everything that we ate and drank here, and the dinner here is one of the most pleasant memories of our visit to Montréal.

Omg...this was an unbelievible find. A small cozy restaurant as what the name is: a Kitchen. The food is amazing. I had the Octopus Paella. The favors were unbelievable. Without a doubt one of the best meals I have had in my life. This is a true French restaurant. The presentation is beautiful to the eye then the explosion of flavor on your tongue comes next. Matthieu our waiter was EXCELLENT. Very attentive and easy on the eyes. I wish this place great success!

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!

Le menu gagnerait à être un peu plus élaboré. Certains plats affichent un prix assez élevé alors que la portion est plutôt modeste.

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.
