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.

    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!

    My husband and I were in town for the Grand Prix and we very much enjoyed the tasting menu at La Chronique. The service and the quality of food was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and the surrounding neighbourhood had many nice bars for after as well.

    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.

    Voici un restaurant parfait pour une soirée en tête à tête et un menu dégustation exquis. Le service est hors pair et l'ambiance agréable et pas bruyante. Les prix sont par contre très élevés, et excessifs malgré la grande qualité des mets servis. Je recommande car il n'y a pas de si nombreuses tables de cette qualité à Montréal. Mon seul regret est de ne pouvoir en faire un de mes restaurants habituels. Ce sera plus pour des occasions exceptionnelles!

    excellent evening out! It had been a while since we had eaten here. Food still as good as we remembered. We were a bit surprised at the menu fixed but it was all very good, I think it should be clearer when booking. I totally understand the reasoning but not everyone ok with the concept.

On s’attend à beaucoup mais on reste surpris à chaque plat; c’est une fête pour le palais, une symphonie orchestrée de main de maître, ou les textures, les contrastes de saveurs et de couleurs rendent justice à la réputation de ce noble établissement.

    L'entrée, les joues de flétan et les 2 vins blancs qui les accompagnaient étaient très bons ! Malheureusement le foie gras et riz de veau étaient vraiment trop salé (au point ou il n'était pas possible de finir l'assiette) et le bison aussi (mais moins). Le dessert (macaron) était trop sucré et malheureusement accompagné d'un vin licoreux (délicieux ! Mais aussi très très sucrée). On est peut être juste mal tombé, ca ne nous empêchera pas de réessayer.
