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.

    Food ok, but not comparable with the best restaurant in Montreal. Wine pairing was really amazing however! Great wines! Overall expensive, at that price, there are several other options in Montreal.

    Nous avons très bien mangé, mais l’expérience globale nous a beaucoup moins plu que lorsque nous y sommes allés pour la dernière fois il y a 7-8 ans. Les plats étaient très bons et bien exécutés. Toutefois, l’expérience n’était pas à la hauteur d’un restaurant de cette qualité. Nous avions une réservation à 18h00 et sommes arrivés un maximum de 15 minutes d’avance. La porte était barrée et l’hôte a ouvert pour arroser les fleurs en nous faisant attendre quelques minutes dehors. On ne nous a pas proposé d’apéritif avant de débuter le service avec vin. J’aurais apprécié avoir quelques options sans alcool autre que des liqueurs et de l’eau pétillante. De petites choses, mais qui font une grande différence en bout de ligne. Nous avons apprécié le service de ma sommelière et d’un des serveurs qui présentait les plats.

Portions were perfect and the flavours layered beautifully. This was definitely an experience for anyone who loves good food!

    Our first two dishes were absolutely spectacular. The 2 next ones just above average. Then the dessert was excellent. The wine pairing was also good. I'd say the you can eat and drink better for less in Montreal.

    Excellente nourriture et service courtois et efficace. La nourriture était exceptionnelle. Ma seule critique, qui n’en est pas une car je recommande cet endroit haut-la-main, c’est que la musique manquait de substance. La nourriture et le vin étaient surprenants, j’aurais apprécié une musique avec plus de personnalité.

    It’s official, our experience at La Chronique earned this once nice restaurant, the title of worst of the summer. The mere mention that a bottle of Barolo was turning sent the waiter into a rude tirade, as if they were afraid to eat the price of a bottle. Normally I would have just left, dissuaded by my wife we stayed and endured a capable, if dated, chef’s tasting menu. A while later, being that the kitchen tasted the wine, the moron waiter came out and half heartedly asked if we wanted something else, but it was too little too late. Here’s the lesson: when it first comes up whisk the bottle and glasses away, bring the list and allow the customer to order another wine! I don’t like the idea that “the customer is always right” but the customer deserves an incredible experience for 450$ nonetheless! It wasn’t busy for a Friday night. My reservation was for 9pm, to my surprise I received a notice at around 7 that my table was ready, curious, perhaps they’re cutting corners, trying to close early to cut costs. So, balking at a returned bottle of wine, quiet weekends, locking guests into a fixed price to recuperate lost income or pay off debt, signals that times running out at La Chronique if things don’t change.

    Extraordinary dining experience. With attentive service from Marianne the sommelier, who explained the wind pairings with the 5 course set menu. The plates built from appetizers to the beef finale with all my favorites: tuna sashimi, seared scallops, foie gras, to a dessert finale that was exquisite, especially with the "secret" dessert wine that we failed miserably to guess. A mandatory stop on any visit to Montreal! Reservations a must!

    Toujours très bon a tout les égards. Cuisine de très grande qualité. Service chaleureux et compétent. Ambiance tranquille— pas trop de bruit, et choix de musique très approprié pour le contexte. Dans notre cas c’était un menu fixe à 5 services (tous excellents). Malgré les portions raisonnables, on trouvait que c’était beaucoup de nourriture pour un seule repas.

    Repas mémorable : de la grande cuisine, un service impeccable, félicitations particulières au sommelier pour le choix des vins (un progression remarquable). Un petit bémol : le foie gras poêlé aurait pu être un peu plus "goûteux", après les pétoncles qui étaient sublimes.
