About Restaurant Toque!

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.

The food was awful which surprised us as this had been rated as the best restaurant in town by Fodirs. Tuna which was ordered rare came to the table well done. When questioned the wait staff never apologized but argued with the diner. No manager ever came over. One of our guests had stomach distress that night. The experience was awful and very expensive

Toujours un plaisir de manger à cette grande table. Produits frais, de saison, du Québec à l'honneur et bien exploités. Merci de nous faire déguster nos richesses maritimes si peu servies telles couteau, oursin, bourgot, thon Bluefin.

Ne changez pas votre formule du menu!

I took my wife of 33 years to the restaurant. It was like a chapter from the Food Network. We had champagne tasting and the chef's seven course tasting menu. It was delicious. My only concern was the table too close to other guests. The conversations sometimes overlapped or drowned my own conversation. I would have expected after all these courses that I would be full. But I was not. For the amount of the menu, I would have expected larger portions.

The atmosphere was wonderful but the restaurant was very over priced. The mark up on wines was over the top. I was expecting an expensive meal but with that also a top experience.
The wine our sommelier suggested was not even close to the first wine we had ordered (which was out of stock)

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on August 26, 2017

We went here with our adult son on a Friday night, expecting a high-end food experience. Overall, we were disappointed and definitely felt we did not get value for money spent. Decor was bland, the restaurant was uncomfortably hot. Our waiter, while friendly and relatively attentive, tended more toward teasing and joking and less toward the professional demeanor we have come to expect at other "fine dining" places. Glasses had a few smudges, water bottle was left on table and not put on ice- small things, but still... The food itself was ok- the foie gras plate was very good- but the fourth course was quail and the fifth (main) course was squab- with not enough difference in the plates to justify this redundancy. Although the sommelier was polite and knowledgeable the wine pairings were all very inexpensive and not that impressive: not a lot of value there at $80 per person just for the wine. This restaurant felt to us like a wanna-be fine dining place-
still a ways to go to reach that level. There are so many great restaurants at every price level in Montreal, my recommendation is to skip this one.

I was recommended by my friend and I went there to try Toque. It has very nice interior and I really like ambiance. I tried couple cocktails and it was really great as well. However, in terms of food tried which was tasting menu, I didn't quite like it If I were to compare to Boullion Bilk. Overall, it didn't really impress me as much as I expected..
But If you are type of person who enjoy natural and simple food rather than flavorful, then you might enjoy Toque.

Le service était impeccable, les serveurs/sommeliers/etc étaient tous attentionnés !

Excellent service à table. Entrées différentes de ce que nous avions l'habitude. Seul petit bémol: le collier d'agneau braisé, très tendre très bon goût mais impossible de distinguer le goût particulier de l'agneau. Cela aurait pu être du porc, du boeuf ou du veau. Ce repas du midi a été très apprécié et les vins accompagnant l'entrée et le plat principal aussi.

Definitely worth the effort while you're in Montreal. One of the top restaurants in the city! Food was outstanding. Only complaints: service, although good, was not up to the standard for this type of restaurant; there was a noisy toddler at a nearby table that distracted from the atmosphere (I will never understand why parents would bring young to this caliber of restaurant ... or why the restaurant allows it).

First, the good news - the service was impeccable & the staff was very attentive to our every need.

Second, the not-so-great news - the food, in general, was good but not outstanding. If we consider the prices on the menu, we would expect a delectable & savory meal. I was underwhelmed, unfortunately. On a positive note, the presentation of every course was fabulous - it was a treat to see creativity at its best. And, not to mention that the staff took the time to explain what it was that they were serving, whether it was our drinks or the food itself.

Overall, my husband & I had a great time - we very much enjoyed our evening out to celebrate my birthday.

Toqué is an intriguing restaurant. Glad we went, but it's a case of been there done that.
It's hard to find particular faults: the service is seamless, etc., but the waiters -- who almost seem to outnumber the clients -- can be a bit brusque. Too efficient. It's not that you want to chat, but a genuine warm smile would be nice at a top level place like this.
Similarly the food. All faultless in a way -- we did the menu tasting accompanied by seven wines. The foie gras was lovely, but there was enough for four people. Then there was a large lamb loin and a slab of duck breast -- all tasty, just toooo much! Probably a fish dish (which was an option rather than the foie gras) would have been better for those of us who chose the fg.
So, a fine place to dine, but we had overall better experiences in the city at less than half the price. When tasting menu/wine combos run to $250 pp, you really expect to have your socks knocked off.

Depuis des années, je voulais aller chez Toqué!
Enfin, je connais! Je sais! J'ai dégusté!

Tout m'a plu: la simplicité ... le naturel..sans prétention de l'accueil.

Un menu équilibré et mon choix fut parfait: crevettes si fraîches dans un parfum de pousses croquantes....
et ma Pintade ! Que de beaux légumes frais de saison et si bien dans la sauce juste un peu corsée...j'en mangerais encore! Accords vins parfaits!
Et surprise: petites mignardises ! Quelle délicatesse.
Service IMPECCABLE !
Merci beaucoup.

Restaurant Toque is reputed to be the finest restaurant in Montreal, and it is certainly among the most elegant. The food was very proficient (particularly the first courses and the desserts), but with the exception a few dishes, they were not memorable (while thoroughly enjoyable). Very much a mix of traditional and modernist cuisine. My major complaint was the length of the dinner. There were long delays between our seven courses, and a meal that was expected to take two hours took almost three. It wasn't the time as much as the gaps between courses. In sum, Toque is a very fine restaurant and a lovely space, but not among the most consequential of North American restaurants.

This was our second visit, the first being 17 years ago in their old location.
While the decor and atmosphere are somewhat sterile, the food is anything but. The four of us enjoyed our meals, except for the one who had the steak which was 'just okay' as per him.
My guinea fowl was superb as were the vegetables accompanying it.
I must also commend the restaurant on how well they handled my dairy and wheat intolerances.
My cocktail, the 'Valhalla', was very enjoyable also.
