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.

Wow nice classic place to really give you a feel for what the Montreal food scene is all about! Loved it. Super nice staff excellent wine sommelier! Wine choices are superb. Food was awesome and creative, however, we did the 7 course tasting menu and frankly, the portions were a little too large, couldn't finish it all even though it was great. I guess that's better than being too small. We have tastings before and left hungry at other restaurants! We will definitely go back when we are up there again. The decor was a little simple, minimalist I guess is the approach they are going for.

Le prix est un peu élevé pour le déjeuner/ lunch surtout pour un gourmand comme moi ...

Divine experience. Treated my wife to a 5 course 'tasting menu' for her birthday. Great experience as each of the courses was a visual work of art and a combination of flavors making the meal a culinary delight as each very create dish is cooked to perfection. Two fish based dishes, two meat dishes and the best very 'special' chocolate fondant I have ever had. Service is nicely paced, professional and friendly. A great celebration. We highly recommend for a special occasion.

Cuisine bien faîte mais assez cher. Mon agneau était cuit à la perfection. Notre serveuse était très sympa. Ce que j’ai moins aimé : la recommandation un peu insistante d’opter pour le menu dégustation. L’attitude très pédante du sommelier. En optant pour l’un des vins de la carte, nous lui avons demandé si nous faisions un bon choix, on nous a répondu avec une attitude « nez en l’air » que si ce vin n’était pas bon, ce dernier ne se retrouverait pas sur SA carte. ..Ah bon ? Moi qui croyait que tout les goûts étaient dans la nature.

Décors minimaliste dans une ambiance sympa et sonore. Le resto est sur deux étages. Pas très grand mais la répartition des tables font qu’on ne s’y sent pas à l’étroit. J’avais demandé d’être placée proche de la fenêtre lors de la réservation (si c’était possible). On ne m’a pas placé là, certainement réservée ai-je pensé. Je n’ai rien relevé. Pas de quoi. Sauf qu’un serveur, au dessus de la serveuse qui nous a placé, m’a gentiment demandé si je désirais souper proche de la fenêtre. C’était sympa de sa part. Après cela on enchaîne avec un défilé de serveurs/ses. Très compétents et fort fort sérieux! Dur de les faire sourire :) Sauf la serveuse française, compétente et souriante! Merci à elle! Mais on est aussi là pour manger et déguster. Pas déçus du tout. 7 services, menu découverte. Excellent! J’ai été passionné par le cerf! Un pur moment de finesse.
J’aurais aimé pouvoir parler au chef et le remercier pour ce délicieux moments gustatifs.
Une prochaine fois!
Y aller les yeux fermés!!!

The five 5 service wine pairing menu was fairly good. However, the wine was poured 15 to 25 minutes before each service not at the same time as the dish..which brings me to say that the service was borderline pathetic; very long! 3 hours for a 5 service meal. I would have expected quite more with an over 600.00$ bill (party of 3). And to top it off, the waiter nearly had a fit and was very defensive when we politely and quietly complained.

No thankyou!

La qualité et l’originalité des mets servis tout à fait exceptionnels. Les conseils du sommelier pour le choix du vin très apprécié.
Une expérience que l'on aimerait répéter plus souvent si la palette des prix devenait plus abordable.

The food was delicious and our waiter was very delightful.

Unfortunately, the individual who greeted us at the door was unwelcoming. After giving him my name, he said there is no one here reserved under that name. He made my wife and i so uncomfortable as though we had to leave his restaurant and we were not welcome. So i took out my phone to show him my “open table” reservation. He then realized he had hand written my reservation under my last name in his reservations book, which he never asked for. A restaurant of this quality should have the proper tools in place to 1) avoid these types of miscommunications from arising at the door and 2) should they arise, have reservationists in place who know how to handle these situations more professionally.

Other than that, only good things to say about La Chronique, especially the ravioli!

Pas de sensation d'extase à la sortie de restaurant. Le repas fût bon mais sans plus vu le prix payé. Je m'attendais à bien mieux. Les ris de veaux avec truffe sur la carte mais sans truffe dans l'assiette m'ont fortement déçu. Je reconnais que je suis dur dans mes appréciations, mais j'ai mangé dans les plus grands restaurants de Montréal et je n'ai jamais été déçu mais là oui.
Servir des verres de vin à 21 et 25$ est de l'abus aussi.

La cuisine, sa présentation et le service continuent à se situer dans le haut de gamme; la qualité des mets et le savoir faire sont remarquables. Un seul bémol : la réverbération de tous les sons ambiants rend la conversation plutôt difficile; il y a lieu d'espérer des mesures d'atténuation à cet égard.

On y retourne pour la bouffe et le service

Les raviolis étaient tres bien présentés MAIS ils n'étaient tièdes et pas fondants, ils étaient beaucoup trop fermes, voir durs. C'était décevant pour un resto de cette réputation. Le plat du cardeau était bon.
Service peu sympathique.
J'y étais allée il y a de cela 9 ans et c'était bien meilleur. C'est dommage.

Food was spectacular.
End of service, unfortunately left a sour note that partially spoiled an otherwise memorable meal.
We unfortunately had to wait upwards of 20minutes to get the chèque after we were done with coffee and dessert.
As we were dining with a toddler that had started to get frustrated and sleepy, this was an issue.
Once the chèque did come, I noticed that there had been an error and that we were double charged for an item. We waited for the waitress to correct the error, but it was simpler to swallow the extra cost than to continue waiting for it to be corrected.
Like I said, one of the tastiest meals we have had in a while, but it will also be remembered as a frustrating one as the service at the tail end seemed to slow to a snails pace.
Food was worth the $400+ dinner for two, service not up to par.
Overall bittersweet...
