  • Don't let the reports of a 6-month wait for reservations deter you. My wife and I were staying right around the corner and decided to just show up in person to make reservations. It was Monday afternoon -- they are closed Mondays we were told -- but the lady present graciously took our reservation for 6pm Tuesday at the bar. Exactly what we hoped for!

    The meal also was everything we had hoped for. The special appetizer was scallop tartare -- amazing! -- and I also had the lobster poutine which was right on my expectations. My wife had 2 appetizers also. We had planned on having a main course but nothing really caught our attention and we were getting full anyway. With 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine and the deep-fried Mars bar for dessert, the bill came to $136 before tip.

    The next night we ended up at Au Pied du Cochon which was even better...... again, no problem with last minute reservations. At least in the off season!

  • Order: scallop tartare, lobster poutine, eggplant parmesan

  • This was our anniversary dinner. We drove 6.5 hours from Burlington Ontario to have dinner here.

    Completely by chance, we happened to meet Chef Chuck Hughes the day before (Friday). We walked by, wanting to take our photo outside the restaurant and he was standing there in the doorway. He was very friendly and talkative. It was truly the highlight of our mini-vacation and totally unexpected.

    The food was amazing. The service was good and fast. The restaurant was busy and loud. The music was great.

    Overall, the experience, was fast paced and exciting. If you're looking for a long, slow dinner, don't come here. If you're looking for good food and a fast paced atmosphere with a rockin' kitchen and staff to match, this is the place for you!

  • Order: Oysters, lobster risotto, beef short ribs with garlic mashed potatoes, two drinks each

  • On business in Montreal alone, I decided to eat at Garde Manger based on several great reviews. It didn't disappoint - the service was excellent, the food was stellar and the atmosphere was laid-back yet electric.
    You can't have a bad meal or a bad time here. Just not possible. Must visit for anyone under 50.

  • Order: Jerk Crab, Short Ribs, house Pils.

  • Garde Manger is one of those hidden local restaurants in one of the busiest cities in Canada. It is well worth the time and and money (not too pricey) especially if you are going to go for celebrations. Trust me on this, you well be amazed with the service and food.

  • Order: Fresh Seafood, Scallops in carrot butter, Halibut, Montreal style steak, Poutine with lobster, Lobster risotto, etc

    I had the best tomato salad I have ever had.

    Who thought a deep fried mars bar could be SO good?!

    Everything was amazing.
    If you want a quieter atmosphere go early in the evening, since the music and chatter gets louder progressively.

    Chuck is the best chef.

    The restaurant is so busy and yet does not even have its name on the building. Be aware of that if you are gong there for the first time.

  • Order: Tomato salad, portuguese style chicken, deep fried Mars bar.
