Very beautiful restaurant. Our waiter Christopher was very welcoming and very informed about the menu. He was always around when we needed help. I would certainly go back. Also I would definitely suggest this restaurant to anyone.

We absolutely loved this little bistro tucked into a quiet corner in old Montreal. Our host was fantastic and seated us in a cozy, romantic spot right by the window where we could comfortably converse. The food is pricey but you do get what you pay for. We ordered the snapper and the leg of lamb. Our meals were perfectly seasoned, portioned and paired to create a memorable flavour profile. This is definitely a place we would recommend!

The food quality is stunning! Tried the 'Côte de boeuf' and the experience was unbelievable.
The wine list is of quality. we tried to order a first Bourgogne bottle which was missing actually and the waiter proposed a Bordeaux of the same price level. But, the price of a wine is absolutely not a guarantee of quality and a Bordeaux doesn't fit the same way as a Bourgogne with food. We ordered then another Bourgogne from a well known producer and the brought the right wine but from another well known producer! Hopefully the wine list is impressive ;)
Overall a beautiful moment

The pressed lamb melts in your mouth, although the roasted vegetables are delicious, but leave you wanting more. Even so, I’d definitely order it again.

Unfortunately we were delayed by severe traffic jams and arrived 30 minutes late. We had tickets for the Centaur Theatre so we rushed though a fine dining experience with insufficient time to fully enjoy it.

After many years of good food and service, this year's edition Happening Gourmand was quite the letdown.

The staff was not very knowledgeable of their menu, we asked questions of which either they had no answers to, or answered something vague. Somewhat of a minor irritant, but hey, nobody knows everything right?

What really made the night an unremarkable was one of the main dishes, which was a rilette style pheasant dish, actually had many bones in it. We had advised the waiter on multiple occasions about the problem and had ask him to report it to the chef in the kitchen. He did not do any of the such, so we had to eat the food CSI style, as if we were trying to look for evidence, trying not to get stabbed by the crushed bones in the food. After carefully and painstakingly removing no less than 5 bones (1/4 toothpick sized), we presented the evidence to the waiter which shrugged it off, said "It happens" and threw away everything without showing it to the chef. It's not like if they were busy also, everyone was watching the Superbowl, so there were a grand total of 4 tables seated in the restaurant. At no occasion, he asked if we wanted anything else or if there was anything he could do.

When this kind of stuff happens, I don't usually go out of my way to ask for free things or anything of the such, so we paid the bill and left.

Even though 5/6 of their plates were delicious, we left the restaurant with a sour taste in our mouth.

We had heard from the staff that Verses was changing its mission from being a high end restaurant to more of a bistro kind of place, but didn't expect such a huge letdown.

This evening might have put an X on making Verses a must go for us during the next Happening Gourmands. Hopefully they can turn it around.

It was a nice experience so I would recommend the restaurant and the brunch was good. I was nonetheless disappointed as we were over-charged. I believe it was unintentional and it was corrected although not fully and it took some time... We ordered 3 normal Mimosa drinks at $10 each. The bill was more expensive than I thought but I went ahead and paid as I thought I simply hadn't evaluated properly since there were 4 of us. After paying, I just kept thinking that it shouldn't have been that high and checked the bill in detail and discovered we had been charged $23 for each Mimosa. We had specifically discussed with the waitress when ordering that we did not want their premium Mimosas. In any case, they immediately recognized the error and attempted to correct it. It took several minutes for them to figure out how to make the correction at which pointed they handed me $39 in cash. I knew right away that this was not the right amount as I had paid tax and tip on the original bill but was frustrated by the time and the inability to figure out the correct refund amount so just took the $39... Considering the tax and the tip, I should have been refunded $47.60 so still ended up paying extra. I don't think this is reflective of the overall restaurant and believe the people who tried to help just weren't familiar with the register but this still left a negative impression.

J’y suis allée avec des amies durant le Happening Gourmand. La nourriture était excellente pour le prix spécial. En tant régulier le menu est assez cher, mais cela vaut probablement quand même le coût. La liste des vins a des peix raisonnables. Par contre, le service était un peu lent et il n’y avait pas tant de personnes aux tables.

We went during Happening Gourmand. The food was good, but not great. My main course of braised veal needed salt badly. The appetizer was chicken veloute with smoked duck and was delicious. I paid $4 extra for the chocolate dessert. It was ok, a bit too tart.

Having been there a couple of times before, I was a little disapointed this time by the food. Usually is great and this time it was a little bit bland and nothing out of the ordinary. I love the place and it’s sad that the quality of the food choices I took was not up to the level I was used to see there.

Spent 2 weeks dining in Montreal and had the fortune of ending this culinary marathon at this gem of a restaurant. The experience was tremendous . From the stellar plating of their luscious cuisine to the attentive and personable service, you would do yourself an injustice by NOT visiting "Verses". Local ingredients are showcased with glorious flavour combinations and creative alluring presentation. I Highly recommend you treat yourself. "Verses" exemplifies why food is more than fuel but rather, a pleasure to be savoured. Montreal shows it's pride, heritage and lust for life through its food and "Verses" shines bright! Bon Appetit.

Verses advertised a New Year's Eve menu but they were not prepared to celebrate the event. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and undertrained. There were no "favors" to celebrate, no announcement of New Year, etc. All food arrived at table at a colder temperature than acceptable. Several plates were delivered to our table that we did not order, even though we were on a fixed $95 menu. We may return for lunch sometime in the future but they nearly ruined New Year's Eve for us. Sad!
