This charming and intimate restaurant serves a generous and creative fresh market cuisine, cheerfully prepared by chef-owners Marc De Canck and Olivier de Montigny. At La Chronique, the pleasures of the table are always front and centre. But in addition to the delights it serves up, the restaurant is also known for its extensive wine list, welcoming décor and impeccable service. Little wonder it's been considered "essential eating" in Montreal since 1995.

Our dinner was amazing! Every dish was prepared to perfection. The wine pairing was one of the best I have ever had. The dinner took 3 hours and we enjoyed every minute of it. The sommelier was incredible with his pairings and his description of each wine and why it would complement the food. My husband and I have eaten at many Michelin star restaurants all over the world, if Canadian restaurants were rated by Michelin stars La Chronique would certainly have a few stars.

La Chronique est de loin mon restaurant préféré à Montréal, et ce, depuis 1997 lors de ma première visite. La qualité des ingrédients, la finesse des préparations, la beauté des présentations, le service, le sommelier, le plaisir qu'un repas à La Chronique apporte, tout ça est imbattable.

Excellent repas dans son ensemble.
Beaucoup de fraîcheur et de soucis des saveurs. Bon du début à la fin. Seul petit bémol la pièce d'agneau n'était pas à la hauteur du reste.

Menu dégustation un peu cher.

Un des meilleurs restaurants dans lequel j’ai mangé. Super bouffe, belle présentation, très bon vin et super service! Par contre le restaurant avait une ambiance froide, c’est le seul point négatif. Mais rien n’empêche que j’y retournerai.

The food was fantastic, every single plate was beautifully presented and the taste was out of this world. They were also great at accommodating one guest in our group who doesn't eat meat.
The service started off great, very attentive and the amuse-bouches and first two services coming in at a good pace. Then, the last two services and the desserts took a very long time. It felt like the staff lost interest.
Next time we will book a little earlier and asked to be seated on the main floor.

Food was fabulous! Wine pairings were good but not excellent. Service was very slow and atmosphere was dull. Expensive, about $250 per person with drinks. Worth one visit, but would probably not return unless service and atMosphere improved

La Chronique is a small restaurant with simple, but stylish decor, which lets you focus on the food. The complimentary amuses-bouche left us somewhat underwhelmed, but then we were blown away by the tasting menu. The halibut was our absolute favourite, and even though I have ethically reservations, I have to admit that the foie gras was also excellent. The waiting time between courses was a bit long, but since this was our evening's entertainment, we didn't mind. Our waiter provided friendly and helpful service. A special meal to remember!

Musique un peu trop agressante au départ. A ma demande on a gentiment baissé le volume. Dans un resto comme le vôtre, une musique plus « enveloppante », serait de mise il me semble.

Autrement, tout était parfait et le service impeccable. Un peu cher, mais ça vaut la peine pour célébrer de grandes occasions. Merci à tous !

Outstanding service. The food was truly exceptional. Great wine list.
Everyone made us feel so welcome and comfortable. The tasting menu dishes were spaced out so nicely (we spent 2,5 hours there) and nothing felt rushed. It was our first time there, but if we lived in Montreal this would become a regular place.
It’s a little pricey but oh so worth it for this wonderfully holistic experience.
