Exceptional restaurant a gem in Montreal.
We had heard of La Verita from family and friends, and since we were celebrating my wife's birthday, we decided it would be the best time to try it out. Booking a reservation is easy through their website. We arrived promptly for our 5:30 slot and were seated immediately.
Our waitress, Stephanie, was extremely friendly and quick. She gave us a full rundown of all the off menu items as well as answering our questions about the menu. We started off with the escargots and pan fried scallops for appetizers, which were delicious. The scallops melted in your mouth. They also gave us a small starter plate of foccacia, olives and sun dried tomatoes.
Our main dishes were the red deer medallion, short rib (Which was an off menu item) and the bavette (8oz angus flank). Each dish had a choice of soup or salad. All our dishes were excellent. Cooked exactly how we wanted it.
And as a nice surprise, Stephanie brought my wife some complimentary tiramisu dessert for her birthday.
A wonderful evening from start to finish.
We will definitely be coming back again
We came to this restaurant previously for my grandmother's birthday. We loved the food and the service and when organizing our daughter's baptism, we instinctively thought to come back here. The owner Derek, did an outstanding job accommodating all of our wishes and delivering on his promise of quality. The day of the baptism, the staff set up the place setting cards and the dessert table perfectly. The restaurant looked great. The food was delicious, fresh and plentiful. The service was impeccable, on point and extremely courteous. When all of our guests left the consensus was unanimous: that they had a great time and absolutely loved both the food and service. My wife and I are extremely satisfied with everything La Verita did for us and our daughter. We highly recommend this restaurant for family events (and dining as well) and we will definitely be back.
La Verita hosted our work holiday party. From the very outset, Derek and his team were accommodating and responsive. They provided many menu options, and allowed for changes to suit our groups needs. The night of the event was beyond our expectations. Every detail was handled by their team, and we were able to enjoy our night. The food, the atmosphere, and the service were exceptional. We had a set menu that included mixed appetizers, salad, main course, and dessert. Every course was delicious, and the tiramisu was perfection. One of the best meals Ive had in the West Island.
Every one of my colleagues commented on what a great night they had. I would definitely recommend La Verita if you are looking for somewhere to hold an event. I will surely be returning here with friends and family.
La Verita is my go-to restaurant for date night, Christmas party, and private parties because of the exceptional food and absolute attention to detail with the service. It is a perfect balance of sophistication and yet warm familiarity. Every dish is a tasty work of art. The service is always excellent from start to finish. The staff pays attention to every detail! Highly recommended.
I had previously visited La Verita on a few occasions, with each dinner being better than the last. Subsequently my wife and I decided to have our reception dinner there this past Saturday and we're delighted we did.
Derek, the owner of La Verita is without doubt a professional, who is extremely knowledgeable, and obviously someone who cares about making people feel comfortable. From helping us finalize our menu and our table layout to his greeting us at the reception desk on our special night, assured us we were in goods hands.
My wife and I and each of our guests, some of whom were already pleasantly familiar with La Verita, were overwhelmed with the beautifully presented plates, the incredibly delicious food, extraordinarily professional and attentive staff, who's timing was absolutely perfect with everything. Our waiter for the evening was friendly, attentive a pleasure to deal with and blessed with perfect timing.
The décor is a clean, modern look, with wavy demi walls, giving an inviting softness. Lighting is gives a warm comfortable ambience. The wavy half walls also help considerably in cutting down noise levels.
As far as the food is concerned, every dish was incredible. Elegant presentations, Grand choice of delicious appetizers (including La Veritas amazing meat balls), and of course the main courses. The majority of our guests including myself chose the 10oz filet mignon. I've had many in my time and La Verita's are the best I have ever had, quite simply PERFECT. That was the unanimous opinion from all at our table which speaks volumes for La Verita's ability to produce high quality plates on a consistent basis. Don't try this at home folks, these guys are professionals. Everyone commented on the delicious food, wine and how smoothly everything went and how beautiful the entire evening was.
Food , service, decor and ambience.... If I could give more stars I would. I'd like to thank Derek, his manager Tommy and the incredible staff at La Verita for turning a memorable evening for 2 into a beautiful event for 16.
One of the greatest places to eat in Montreal!
After eating at many reputed restaurants in Montreal like 'Da Emma' and 'Toqué' this restaurant really impressed me. Everything from the side salad, to the bread, and the main dish were executed perfectly. I especially recommend to order some kind of meet in your dish.
Thank you for a great time!
Definitely coming back,
Excellent food and first class service! Deserves way beyond a 5 star rating!
We just had our twins communion party at La Verita Restaurant this past weekend and could not have asked for a more perfect experience!
A big thank you to Derek and his staff for making our boys party so special! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding! The staff was extremely attentive to all our needs. We highly recommend this restaurant for parties, family gatherings or even for just an evening out!
Had a great dining experience here recently. The food was delicious and the service top notch.
From the food, the set up, the drinks! The list goes on and on!
We just celebrated our wedding at La Verita (we were approx 60 people)
and thanks to Derek and his amazing staff we had the most PERFECT night!
The food was cooked to perfection, the staff were very attentive to each guest, and the ambiance was presented perfectly! If you're looking for the best Italian food in the West-Island or even in all of Montreal you really NEED to go to La Verita! We look forward to going back for dinner and drinks and also look forward to celebrating many more special occasions at this picture perfect restaurant!

La Verita is an excellent restaurant. The food is fantastic, truly delicious.
The staff is amazing, cordial and professional. We just celebrated my twin daughters First Communion and I could not have asked for anything better.
Each dish was carefully prepared and simply delicious. Although we had several kids present, the staff was so patient and so nice with all the kids. They were also very attentive to all our needs and requests.
If you are looking for a romantic dinner for two or to celebrate an important occasion, you can't go wrong by choosing La Verita.
We just celebrated my daughters baptism at La Verita. I cannot emphasize enough the professionalism of this staff. The service was impeccable from the moment we sat down to discuss a menu last week to the actual event. The food was delicious, mouth watering using only the best produce. We had the entire place to ourselves which was great. We were 60 adults and 15 kids, and had so much room to just enjoy the evening. We had set up a section for arts and craft for the kids. As well had an area dedicated to the magician we had come. Needless to say the staff was very accomadating. The decor of the restaurant is perfect. Clean trendy and on point. We just couldn't be happier with the outcome. Derek and Nick you guys have truly gone above and beyond for us and we are so grateful. You guys make the perfect team, and because of it your restaurant is a success in every sense. God bless and thank you thank you thank you!
At the end of November 2014, we hosted our daughter's baptism at La Verità. We were graced with the presence of 74 of our friends and family. The event was perfect and we were proud to have chosen this venue for this special occasion. The restaurant is only open for private parties on Sundays so we got to enjoy this place all to ourselves.
First, let me point out that the restaurant itself is a beautiful, modern setting that requires nothing at all. This made our job as hosts that much easier! We prepared placecards to guide our guests to their seats and the staff had prepared the table at the entrance with the said cards beautifully. In addition, the staff took great care in setting up our party favours on the bar area. The setup of the favours was stunning and made the favours look that much nicer!
Secondly, we cannot say enough about the food....and our guests kept raving about it. We obviously chose this restaurant further to a tasting and the meal was just as delicious as the day we sampled it despite the volume. Our menu consisted of the following:
4) Choice of filet mignon or salmon
5) we brought our own dessert
Having selected the filet mignon ourselves, we can simply say that it melts in your mouth. Our guests were just as delighted with the salmon. The presentation of the food was also very nice.
The staff was very attentive to our needs and to those of our guests. They were beyond courteous and extremely diligent in serving both the food and the drinks to our guests promptly. Never did we feel rushed through our meal or with regard to the evening itself for that matter.
For dessert, we served a cake and macarons. All went well and we have no complaints with regard to the service of this course either.
As a bonus, the children were seated at a table facing a flat screen television. We were able to bring DVD's to keep them entertained in their little corner. Great for the adults to be able to enjoy their own meal!
Finally, we highly recommend La Verità for any private party...they have clearly mastered the art of catering to a big crowd! We are proud of our choice and beemed with joy knowing our guests were that impressed.
Thank you to Derek and his great team!
We recently had my son's post wedding reception at this restaurant and I must say, it exceeded my expectations. The food was exceptional, the atmosphere was beautiful and the service was impeccable. I would like to thank Derek and his staff for making this event a memorable one. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone planning a gathering or to just go for a quiet dinner. We had 65 guests and the restaurant was beautifully set. By the way, they have a beautiful outdoor terrace, which was great for our guests to have a drink and relax. Biggest hit: Braised Lamb Shank and the octopus!!!
Very cozy atmosphere. Service was professional and courteous.
This restaurant is a true gem.
Food was amazing.Menu was great with enough choice to be satisfied .Price is a bit steep but well worth it.
My lobster stuffed ravioli in creamy sauce was delicious.
