Fall-off-the-bone kabrit! Where to begin? It was honestly such a fun night. The place looks amazing. It's very immersive & it feels like we're entering a fancy grave. I loved the music by A$h Banks; it was top-tier selections nonstop! The food was so tasty, really well-seasoned & exceptional. Each dish was so unique & well-executed. We had 2 cocktails which were very delicious & potent! The mac & cheese was baked & creamy, & it didn't taste like water, as opposed to 99.9% of other places where they serve mac & cheese. It was really authentic & comforting. My discovery is the octopus carpaccio - let me tell you this one is a show stopper. SO fresh. & it was topped with a bruschetta-like sauce & focaccia. It was so unexpected & daring to compose a dish like that, but the tastes blended so well together, & it was also topped with mashed avocado. SO creative. I recommend this dish to everyone! The kabrit was G.O.A.T. It came with shishito peppers & it was literally the most tender kabrit I have ever tasted in my entire life. It just fell appart & melted like butter in my mouth. The griyo was outstanding! This dish is very authentic & simple, but it is executed exceptionally by Chef Mike Lafaille. The pikliz was pikliz! Very delicious & it's just what you hope for & more. We also ordered allocco which was just a delight! They use the sweet, ripe plantain & it was such a perfect addition to our dishes. I find the the menu is ecclectic & unexpected, but there is definitely caribbean tastes & influence in every dish I've tasted. I find it so rare to find fusion restaurants that make sense & Kwizinn makes sense! It's really well-executed & it was worth every penny. Don't go there without an open mind. It's truly an experience & they also do brunch & have fun events. I also appreciate that they were very family-friendly. We came with a baby & they didn't make us feel uncomfortable, which some fancy restaurants can sometimes make you feel like & inconvenience if you have a family or young baby, but it was not the case at Kwizinn. It's very welcoming. The service was great! I could feel the passion in every person who served us. It shows that they love what they do. They tended to our needs & were super friendly. I love that it's a chic environment, but it's also very warm & loving. A huge shoutout to Claudia who is such a great host & made me feel at home! This one is already a staple in the city. It's so worth it. I can't wait to go back & try more dishes. I'm really proud that we have such an institution here in Montreal. Bravo to everyone involved! Fantastic experience. Will recommend & tell everyone.View more

Yo yo yo, the cuisine in this place is just 👌🏽👏🏻...I'm from Central Africa & eating here felt like I was at home. It's a very modern touch on Afro-Carribean food.View more

Our server visibly relaxed when we opened with "Help us choose. Spicy is okay." Things went well from there. We ate light, choosing the pork griot & the mushroom empanadas. Both were very good, Solid wine list too. We'll be back soon for a full meal.View more

It was average. My wife ordered the chicken, & they burned it. She said it was dry. It didn't look like what others had on their pics on here. They also didn't provide a half chicken, just wings & drumsticks. Felt like we didn't get value on our order here. I ordered the burger, & it was really good. The fries were the driest fries I ever ate in my life. It was unedible though. Overcooked was a regular theme with the food, even the plantains were dry. I didn't make for an enjoyable dining experince. Even the djon djon rice wasn't djon djon rice. We were confused at what we were served. The atmosphere was nice. I was thinking that I'd come back & order the appetizer plate before the food came. I think I'll pass instead.View more

Really flavourful & delicious food! The atmosphere was also gorgeous & I loved that there was a live DJ. The service though very nice, wasn't the most attentive & we found ourselves thirsty a lot & our drinks ended up coming after our meal arrived. But overall I still really enjoyed the experience!View more

Good atmosphere & food! The only negative (but that does quite impact the overall experience) is the service. Extremely slow waitress (& the restaurant wasn't packed). Took 15-20 minutes to get cocktails, & no water. We had to ask someone to give us some water after waiting for 20 minutes for someone to come to our table. We felt forgotten. I mean, the food is AMAZING & the live band was great - but the service ruins it. Then you're asked to tip 18% or more, makes no sense. Anyways, thanks for the great food & ambiance but please have your waiters be more attentive.View more

BON PAR OÙ COMMENCER ???J'y suis passé aujourd'hui avec ma copine pour la première fois!! On a été assis & servis en moins de 30 secondes! On a pas eu à attendre pour l'eau! Ensuite la serveuse nous présente le menu , & faut le voir pour le croire mais c'est un menu Haitien/Caribbean réinventer à la perfection , cest bien parceque on retrouve les goûts & la saveur qu'on aime mais en mieux!! On a eu droit à un live band de musique classique!! Le décor est digne d'un restauré gastronomique, on voit que le owner y a mis du temps!! Apres son passage à l'émission culinaire sur Prime & son stand au Festival Latino au Vieux-Port en 2023 j'étais curieux de visiter son nouvelle établissement !! La serveuse était aux petits options avec nous c'était super!! Comme entré je vous conseille les BAO c'est mega bon!! Overall on voit que c'est le début de la révolution du monde culinaire Haïtien à Montréal & je suis très fière de les avoir encourager !! Bon appétit à tous!!View more

Good food, but... .. only French menu card .. prices are deceiving; they recommend a side as well that cost close to a main elsewhere .. the plate size of the main would make it a small side elsewhere. Overall can not really recommend for anything but a snackView more

A bit pricey but the food was really good. I had the plantain burger & that was one of the best burgers I've ever had ! The sides are quite expensive for relatively small portions.View more

This place is a perfect 10/10. It's low key & unassuming. The service was great. The food delicious. & the vibe ... oh the vibe!! Absolutely on point. Husband & I went for a date night. We had a great time. Great to see how this restaurant has transitioned from the verdun location to the old port. Well definitely be back!View more
