About the restaurant

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.

Excellent food and service. Wine list is outstanding with hard to find producers at very reasonable prices. Easily one of the best in Montreal for a memorable meal.

About the restaurant
Three delightfully decorated halls in the Empire style that dominated
the Napoleonic era give the restaurant the intimate character
that guests treasure. An exquisite cuisine, prepared with French savoir-faire
and showcasing the finest fresh regional products.

About the restaurant

From noon until the end of the evening, this authentic Parisian "brasserie" frolics with audacity and lightness on the themes of the Church in an audacious humor. The institution has always excelled in perfectly mastered French classics to be savored with delight, such as charcuterie, tartars, duck dishes, offal, as well as seafood. Oysters, shrimps, lobsters and other seafood (depending on arrival) freshly delivered by our local producers is a Chez Lévêque tradition, to the delight of our loyal customers. Whether you come to sip a martini or champagne, treat yourself to a comforting plate of foie gras or a club sandwich, or end the evening nibbling on tasty delicacies, you will feel at home in this friendly, authentic and relaxed restaurant. claim!
Chez Lévêque offers late-night specials where you can also come and taste the Chez Lévêque menu at $29 starting at 9 p.m.!

About the restaurant
Les Mômes offers a friendly table where French techniques combine with a love of local products and an eco-responsible logic, thought out by Chef Yoann Van Den Berg. We break the codes of classic gourmet cuisine as we have seen and reviewed it, and we appreciate the attentive service and a warm, yet festive atmosphere, worthy of a dinner party. Don't forget to bring your own wine!
