Sat in the bar area (I recommend that over the dining room). Food was amazing. Waitress was very friendly, knowledgeable & professional. She recommended the PERFECT bottle of wine for our meals. We loved it & it reminded us why we come back to Monarque every few months. Outstanding food - Great service!View more

Me & my colleagues were recommended Monarque & we weren't disapointed. At first they looked fully booked but they had room for the 6 of us in the dinning room (not the Brasserie). It's worth knowing that the restaurant is split with two different menus. We were looked after by Colin who was brilliant. He was immedietly helpful explaining the menu & instantly built a great report with everyone. The food was amazing. Each dish was presented well & tasted great. I personally really enjoyed the Lobster & Monkfish & the others at the table equally loved their food with every plate left empty. At the end of the evening, Colin dealt with our difficult requests concerning the bill & how it was split with no problems. Even though it meant some quick maths were needed everything eventually was sorted out. We all left happy & were telling our other colleagues about our experience the next day. I would absolutly return when we are next in Montreal & recommend it to anyone who is visiting.View more

Upscale restaurant in the older part of Montreal. The hostess was very welcoming & accommodating we had a reservation for 8pm which we were able to move forward to 7pm. We really appreciated the flexibility after a long day at the Montreal Grand Prix. We had seats at the bar which worked well for us. The bar staff were friendly & it was fun watching them work. The stand out dish for us was the Bone Marrow appetizer. The only improvement would be to add an extra slice of toast because there was too much bone marrow for just one slice. Entrees were solid at a price I'd expect for a higher end restaurant. Highly recommend the passion fruit pavlova for dessert. It was the right balance of sweet & tart in a huge slice.View more

Sehr angenehme und professionelle Bedienung. Die Atmosphäre ist akustisch überladen, was die Konversation beim Essen durchaus erschwert. Die Küche gibt sich gehoben, ist jedoch wenig innovativ und bietet leider kulinarisch wenig Überraschungen. Die Weinkarte ist interessant, bietet jedoch leider keine Auswahl kanadischer Provenienz.View more

Classic French, excellent food & excellent service. I need to mention this, my wife ordered a glass of wine & asked our server their thoughts on it... He was charming & honest & said in the nicest way it was not good & offered her a taste. It was not very good & my wife ordered a different glass. Excellent service.View more

Went here for the first time last night to celebrate my anniversary with my partner. I wrote a comment in the reservation but never spoke about it during the dinner. They came out with a dessert tasting menu & a candle to celebrate it. Our waiter recommended a sparkling wine & I accepted but didn't love the taste so he immediately got me something that speaks more to my pallet preferences without charging us. He managed our expectations well when I ordered the beef cut & told us it would take about 25 mins. We accepted. Highly recommend the lobster farroto. The flavour profile was impressive! The attention to detail, the responsive staff, the quality of the food - absolutely worth the price.View more

We met friends at Monarque last night for dinner & drinks. The wait staff was fantastic, with a perfect measure of attentiveness - always making sure that our experience was great without getting intrusive. We sampled a number of dishes. The fries were done to perfection (gotta start somewhere); the steak tartare was extremely flavorful (a must try); we then progressed to share a dozen oysters - with fresh grated horseradish & mignonette. For mains, we ordered the special - a roasted pork shoulder served on a bed of vegetables - which took an hour to prepare. Our friends ordered the pork chop & the cuit du jour - grilled flank steak. While we waited for our mains we shared a plate of sauteed mushrooms, & another of asparagus & fiddleheads. Both were extremely tasty. The mains arrive... The lamb shoulder was... Wow. Just wow. Slow roasted to perfection, it had a crispy exterior & juicy, succulent flesh. Every taste was spectacular. We wrapped up with dessert - my wife had the ice cream sandwich, I had the creme caramel. Nice way to finish off. A great shout out to Sonia, our server, & Serge, who assisted us in making the overall experience such a pleasure.View more

Very nice place, The food is well prepared & cooked especially the bone marrow with snails. The platter is very good indeed as well. Everything is well done except the Halibut I have, which is not as fresh as I imagine. I like seafood & I am quite picky at this price range. Don't get me wrong, the dish was quite nice but simply not up there yet, I am sure you can do better. Otherwise, it was a very nice time dining at Monarque with nice staff.View more

Meilleure expérience culinaire de mon séjour Montréalais. Os à moelle/escargot à tomber (j'ai encore le souvenir vif du jus superbement réduit qui accompagne ce plat en bouche, l'onctuosité de l'assemblage escargot / moelle), homard parfaitement cuit & sauce « thermidor » parfaitement dosée pour ne pas écraser le goût délicat du crustacé.View more

Surprised how crowded it was on a Friday around 5:30. Didn't appear to be a seat available but were accommodated. The service was excellent. It was apparent throughout the meal there is a level of quality control & observation that is lost in most restaurants to keep the table clean of plates, refreshing of water & drinks & to inquire if anything is needed. The charcuterie board was delicious & impressive in assortment. Presentation of each dish was a small work of art. The menu is relatively small which my assumption is it's rotational & by chef's selection which keeps it interesting.View more

After a few visits to Montreal with no reservation success, I was able to snag a last minute Brasserie table reservation for 1! I arrived & was immediately brought to my table & walked through the menu by Vincent. He gave great reccomendations & was great about checking in. Honestly, the entire staff felt like they were trained in hospitality. The host came by to check on me in & took another drink order. & the server, who was taking care of the table next to me, also took a moment to make small conversation. I regularly dine out alone due to work travel & while I don't always feel comfortable, I was put at ease the entire time. Okay the food/cocktails - AMAZING! The bartenders make wonderful cocktails that are both enjoyable to watch being created as they are to drink. I got the Farigola & the Colibri. The food was wonderful as well. I ordered the ricotta ravioli which balanced the cheese & meat super well. Raviolis were cheese filled & the meat was underneath. The fried cauliflower was huge (this is the single portion) & very butter forward if that's your thing - it's my thing so I obviously loved it. The steak was cooked to exactly medium rare (as ordered) & the fries were perfectly crispy. 10/10 would reccomend... if you can get a reservation ;)View more

1. Salmon tartare: I love the combination of the softness of the fish & crunch add on 2. Pearl salad: love the sauce & cheese. Very flavourful with the ingredients 3. Steak with fries: fries were the highlight. (Usually I don't like fries). The steak was my least favourite prob maybe because of the cut.View more
