We were suspicious but we plunged ahead. Good thing too, we had a great experience chatting with the owner/father who gave us great service. The food was superb etc. Thanks fellow members! PS: We've been to Montreal hundreds of times and actually plan to retire there. Why? Simply because Mtl is fun, fun fun. Hey US tourists, skip Toronto. Just... More

We visited Chez Chose for our wedding anniversary on Wednesday 8 August 2012 and it exceeded all our expectations. My husband ordered the duck hearts and I had the cold soup which was delicately flavoured and light. Our main courses were so beautifully presented and tasted so fresh we were very happy. My husband ate the venison and I ate... More

There are over 2600 restaurants in Montreal. How to choose? Chez Chose was near the top of the list on Tripadvisor in July, as well it should be! We had a wonderful dinner experience there. Our host and waiter (also part of the family) was delightful, humorous and informative! We asked to work through the French menu on our own(being... More

From the first phone call for reservations, Chez Chose makes you feel comfortable. Innovative appetizers set the stage and the main dishes all sounded so good it was difficult to decide. We chose venison and rabbit and both meals were outstanding. The excellence continued through dessert. Even familiar items were prepared in new and interesting ways. Our host Bobby with... More

We ate Chez Chose on two consecutive nights at this family owned and operated bistro. This family loves their work. You can feel the father's genuine enthusiasm from the moment he comes to your table; he smiles from ear to ear as he describes the menu items, which are written on a large black board, which is brought to your...

This is going to be a strange review. Chez Chose might have been too good. You see, the starters we had were amazing, and I do mean amazing. We had both the foie gras and the gnocchi with a chanterelles cream sauce. They were both soooo good as to make you smile with each bite. But here's the thing, they... More

It's a nice restaurant owned and run by the family. Great service, and great local wines. The menu is ambitious, innovative and unique. Located in the bohemian quartier of Plateau, easy to access by metro. Food was good but prices were a bit higher than expected.

After so many positive reviews, I decided to try it, despite being quite a walk to get there from downtown. However, going there was definitely worth it. So far, it was one of the best meals I've had in Montreal. To start, the service was great, especially when compared to other restaurants in Montreal. Although it was a bit slow,... More

Chez Chose offers a menu from a blackboard.This menu varies depending on the season and the products from our providers, each and every one of them Quebec's very own craftsmen. It also varies following the fantasies of our chef Marie-France Desrosiers whom plays around the products we receive, maintaining a fresh and seasonal selection. May it be foie gras, vegetables, rabbit, guinea fowl regardless of the delivery, she will lay in your plate a joyful mix of flavours . The perfect brew of our local farmers' hard work and the genius of Marie-France has made Chez Chose something... Grandiose. Have a taste, you will see.... Chez Chose vous propose un menu a l'ardoise. Ce menu varie au gre des saisons et des arrivages de nos fournisseurs, tous sans exception des artisans du terroir quebecois. Il varie aussi selon les fantaisies de notre chef Marie-France Desrosiers qui s'amuse avec ce que nos producteurs d'ici lui envoient, pour autant que tout soit frais et de saison.

Staying in Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension

Neighbourhood Profile
The most ethnically diverse of all of Montreal's neighbourhoods, Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension (or, Parc-Ex) stands at the city's centre, a hub for rail and metro traffic. Starting at the old station where the Canadian Pacific used to disembark, the brick-and-mortar surroundings of Parc-Ex have a homey feel, with leafy lawns and bicycle lanes seamlessly incorporated into the landscape. With prominent Greek and Spanish communities, Greektown includes the tastiest stops for brochettes and shawarma, and local bars entertain an excitable soccer fanbase. Jerry Park and Stade Uniprix stand ready for sports diehards to enjoy a game, while the the Complexe Environnemental Saint-Michel and Le Taz skate parks invite athletes to train and compete. Though built for the active and best by day, Cirque du Soleil, the TOHU center for arts, and the Le Boulevard shopping centre offer diversions for those who wish to stay late.
