In 1993, Toqué! opened featuring local produce: a showcase for Quebec's terroir and its suppliers. The ongoing contributions of these artisans is no less important today. We have them to thank for foie gras de canard or salicornia; lamb of heirloom vegetables; seafood or fine herbs. These tireless farmers, foragers and fishermen inspire Toqué!'s cuisine, on which they bestow tastes, textures and natural aromas and unparalleled freshness.

Le repas était succulent. Seul petit bémol: ma pintade était un petit peu coriace... J’y retournerai sans aucun doute. Merci!

Felt decoration of restaurant was dated very 80s - who uses pinks and blues on walls. Service was excellent - a lot of hype

Dans l’ensemble une belle expérience. Avions pris le menu dégustation. Il est toutefois dommage de ne pas savoir d’avance les plats qui seront apportés. Ce qui fait en sorte que nous avons dû retourner un plat. Personnel attentionné. J’ai trouver les plats bon et peut-être un ou deux moyen et qui manquaient de saveur. Une chose que je déplore est le pain sec. Le pain selon moi devrait être toujours moelleux et chaud.

Le potage de topinambours était un peu trop salé. L’assiette de ronde de veau était quelconque visuellement. Les petites patates grelots étaient froides et il n’y avait pas de couleurs dans l’assiette. La aussi, c’était salé. C’est la première fois que j’allais au Toqué et que j’en sortais déçue. Habituellement, c’est impeccable.

Toque has a great reputation and it did not disappoint in any way. Our dining experience was wonderful , in all respects. Our meals, of course, were perfectly prepared and the service excellent. It was the high point of our visit to Montreal.

En général tout a été parfait, nous étions emballé lors de notre sortie du restaurant, belle expérience. Par contre gros problème dans la nuit pour moi qui avait bien spécifié qu’il y avait deux personnes sans gluten. En arrivant au restaurant nous leur avons encore spécifié que moi j’étais cœliaque, on m’a dit qu’il n’y avait pas de problème, par contre j’ai été malade dans la nuit suivant le souper. Je ne recommanderais pas ce resto pour les gens avec des problèmes de gluten.

Wonderful service! Wine and food were expertly described. Service was not overbearing or aloof. They genuinely seemed to care if you liked the dish or not (and food was the star)! The foie gras is unbelievable...the perfect sear! Only thing that could be better...the restaurant is in dire need of an update in decor. It was somewhat tired and sad inside. Started the experience off under expectations, but the service and food quickly made up for the lack of atmosphere.

Probably one of the best restaurants in Montreal. Incredible options including the pairing menu and the opportunity to use the chef to suggest the meal. We chose the ala cart menu and were not disappointed. Great presentation, incredible wait staff, that were more than knowledgeable about food and wine. Restaurant design was OK, not memorable. This is not for the faint at heart when it comes to budget, but so worth a special night and/or occasion.

Relaxez un peu! On est en 2019! Même dans un grand restaurant on peut se relâcher et être un peu moins coincé sans que cela ne soit déplacé.
On a commandé de l’eau pétillante, et d’emblée le serveur nous sert une eau embouteillée alors qu’au menu, que l’on ne possède pas encore à ce moment-là, on offre de l’eau gazeuse maison en service illimité. Mais ce qui est pire c’est qu’au moment où l’on questionne le serveur à ce sujet il nous reproche de ne pas l’avoir demandé!

We were given a recommendation for Restaurant Toque! from a chef friend. In his opinion one of the best restaurants in Canada. We were not disappointed. The waiters were very personable and treated us very well. We ordered the 7 course meal with wine pairing. The meal was beyond reproach. Very enjoyable experience and we will cherish memories for a long time.

We were looking for the VERY best meal in Montreal. Was recommended to this restaurant. Total disappointment. Was not a good meal. Was not good quality. Service below average and slow.

Would not go back, would not recommend.

Don’t fall for the hype. And they need to get over themselves. Poor attitude.

When I go to a restaurant I want to feel welcomed and like I am appreciated not like they’re doing me a favor.

I really have nothing good to say about this restaurant and it’s probably only my second bad review of a restaurant in the last 10 years.

Too many fantastic restaurants in Montreal to be fooled by substandard Restaurant Toque.

Remarquable. Cuisson parfaite, mets recherchés, présentation élaborée, les meilleurs produits du Québec sont à l'honneur. Vins de très grande qualité et service de première classe. Beau restaurant, beaux volumes, belle lumière, quelques belles décorations, bien que nous ayons été collés à un mur en gypse plutôt banal. Vaisselle et coutellerie sobres mais de qualité correcte. Verrerie impeccable, très propre. Salle de bain pas tout à fait au même niveau de qualité que le reste.
Bref: C'est une expérience de très haut niveau, on peut être fiers d'avoir un tel chef et cette véritable institution de classe internationale.

Nous avons adoré notre expérience chez Toqué! J’ai encore le goût de l’extraordinaire huître en bouche et Louis à particulièrement aimé le foie gras. Le personnel est très gentil. Nous avons vraiment été choyés d’avoir été conviés en cuisine suite à mon écrit expliquant que mon mari adore Normand Laprise. Il dit que c’est comme s’il avait rencontré Wayne Gretzky! Merci beaucoup au gentil monsieur qui nous a fait visiter la cuisine et au sommelier qui vient de la Gaspésie...ils ont été particulièrement gentils et généreux!

We had the prix fixed meal and it was lovely. Two of the seven plates were outstanding and the others were very good. The ambience of the room and wine cellar was stellar.

I was looking for more original flavors.

The gluten free toast was inadequate to such an establishment.

I do not understand using white wine glasses for red wine unless it is to make the customer think they are getting more wine than they actually are.

There are many $$$$$ french restaurants in Montréal so the competition is tough. Thanks for a very nice meal.

Tres bon service, bonne entrée et dessert! Le plat principale d’agneau etait peu gouteux et petite portion! Je suis allé au Toqué sur l’heure du midi avec mon fiancé. J’ai aimé l’expérience mais le plat principal ne m’a pas convaincu pour y retourner.

We were very grateful that our young daughter was welcomed and accommodated with a delicious pasta dish so we could experience the seven course Chef's tasting with wine pairing, it was excellent! We opted for the regular wine pairing vs prestige and were quite happy with this. We found creativity on every plate with the finest ingredients. You could see and taste all the effort that went into every dish.

From the minute you walk into Toqué you know you are in for a treat.
My husband and I were there with our Florida neighbors. Came in earlier than our reservation
And were seated promptly. We each had different entrees and main meals. Pasta, lamb, veal and
tuna. I was very pleased with my pan seared wild mushrooms and the veal round as my main dish.
Presentation and flavours were what to expect of Toqué. Beautiful and delicious. Glad they had enough breads to
suck up the delicious sauces.
Dessert was yummm.

I have been coming to Restaurant Toqué for over fifteen years, and every meal has been exquisite. Most recently, on Friday night, I was meeting two childhood friends, and all three of us were traveling from different locations. The staff members were superbly accommodating for late arrivals and dietary restrictions and were solicitous throughout the meal without being intrusive. It's rare that a restaurant can pull off attentive service and a noise level that encourages conversation, but they've done it every time that I've been there. And, of course, the food was just spectacular. I am already looking forward to my next visit!

It was not good. The restaurant smelled terrible as though there was a sewer back up. I guess it was good that all of our food came out very quickly to ensure the could turn over the table. The steak and Brussels sprouts was so salty so as to be almost inedible. It took away my appetite. A huge disappointment
