I tried the 5 course tasting menu and it did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and accommodating of the fact that I don’t speak French well. Highly recommend!

Very good food, very good value. Only problem, too slow between services. Everyone had the same menu, these should have been coming way faster. But would totally recommend on value and food quality alone. I'd go back just for that strawberry macaroon.

Made my top 5 best restaurants in Montreal. We enjoyed the tapas option. The value for the price is fantastic. Food was amazing, old classics were playing which made for a killer ambiance. The service was outstanding. I highly recommend it.

Wanted to love this place, wine selection and price were very good! The waitress and helpers were amazing and you felt like it was a well-run restaurant. We had the 6-course meal, our first dish was tartare and it was awesome! Unfortunately, the second course of shrimp and cheese risotto was disappointing (too much cheese, oily, and tasteless shrimp. The torchon de foie gras, the cod, and the chewy maigre de canard were all simply ok. Dessert was simple and delicious. I will try it again and ask for what they believe are their specialties are as it does show promise. Maybe we hit it on an off night, it was extremely busy!

The food was excellent as was the ambiance. My only downside was that the server didn't inquire about allergies. My daughter's flank steak arrived on a bed of green beans garnished with pea shoots - none of which were itemized on the menu. Since my daughter has a legume allergy this was a problem. They replaced the dish promptly but a question initially would have helped us have our main courses at the same time.

I went to Vertige for a tapas night, 6 for $29, was pleased with the variety and was very happy with my choices. The shrimp risotto was a highlight, and then the dessert of profiteroles (included in the 6 tapas!) was outstanding! Most definitely recommend.

Went to Vertige for the first time for my birthday and my parents' anniversary dinner. What an experience! We chose the 6-course tasting menu and it was incredible. The grilled shrimp with saffron risotto and the cod were my favourites but each dish was just an amazing explosion of flavours. The molten chocolate cake with dulce de lèche ice cream was the perfect way to top off the meal.
Special shout-out to our server, who somehow managed to serve about 10 tables on her own with excellence and professionalism. Made us feel like we were the only guests in the room.
Would highly recommend!

Petit restaurant dans le quartier Mont Royal, où il fait bon se balader le soir. L'ambiance du restaurant est vraiment conviviale, feutrée et idéale pour une soirée romantique. Le brie croustillant en entrée était super, et les cavatellis aux tomates délicieuses ! La présentation des plats est très soignée et le service assez rapide, et ce malgré beaucoup de clients. Les desserts sont un peu moins bons que le reste, mais ça reste quand même vraiment top ! En plus les prix restent corrects, car en France pour ce genre de restaurant on paye beaucoup plus cher !

The food was delicious! We were a group of 9 and we all loved everything we ordered. I will definitely go back to taste other things.
Only cons I found is that being a group of 9 we were told we kind of had to go with the semi-fix menu or we would have big delays. It was either all 9 on fix menu or all 9 on regular menu. We could not chose either or at leisure. Having said that, the semi-fixed menu had 4 different options of appetizers and main course and everything was superbe!

Food was great we ate from the tapas menu. It was recommended that we each chose 6 plates so we did and we shared those 12 plates. It was a lot of food. If we did it again we would definitely just split 6 plates.

This was our second time at Vertige, and it was as nice as the first! The four of us shared the mixed meat plate for two, and two sets of tapas (6 plates each). A wonderful selection of flavours and gave us plenty of food. Service was swift and friendly.

Excellent resto! Nous étions 2 adultes, 1 ado et 1 enfant. La formule 6 tapas pour 29$ est vraiment avantageuse. Nous avons pu goûter à plusieurs mets et partager avec les enfants selon leurs goûts. Et que dire du vin, wow! Une importation privée à un prix tout à fait raisonnable pour un resto. Le personnel est super agréable, on sent qu’ils aiment ce qu’ils font. C’était ma deuxième visite, mais certainement pas la dernière. Merci Vertige!

We had the tapas menu. Some hits and some misses among the 18 dishes that we had, but overall good. The plates are small and I thought there wouldn't be enough but in the end I was full. Would definitely go again.

I made dinner reservations for a party of 6 for my friend's birthday. I read reviews that the restaurant was great for groups so I was excited. While the food was absolutely delicious, the ambiance was not suitable for large (and slightly loud) groups. We felt very out of place because we clearly were not locals/regulars. The service was the absolute worst! The dinner lasted 3 hours due to significant delays in service (30 minutes to get water and bread). I would recommend Vertige for 2 or 3 people...no more. And dress casually! Not really the best for a fancy and special occasion.
