Four of us had a delightful evening at Chardo. The welcome warm , the table was ready and the service was charming, prompt , helpful and as good as can be . We started with oysters which were fresh , plump and tasty. We all...had different beverage champ iced and all were very good including the zero alcohol selection. Entrees of sweetbreads , black cod and celery root as spaghetti were on the whole successful but the portion sizes were mean and presented with very original but fussy and precious sides. The calorie count was probably in single digits!! Looking for something to fill up on we chose the chocolate offering which turned out to be white chocolate-blaekk- a lemon one which wasn’t very lemony. Both were tiny servings. The bill wasn’t too steep as we didn’t have much to drink, about $200 per couple before tip. We enjoyed ourselves in this beautiful place but went away hungry and disappointed as we had much higher expectations. Next time I will study the menu options very carefully before reserving. The chefs should offer e few more nourishing choices and dumb down the cutsyness .More

The food is delicious and locally sourced, the staff knowledgeable about ingredients and selection of wines, and the atmosphere truly festive. I always book weeks in advance, at least, and appreciate that the restaurant respects the booking-time order in the provision of tables on the...day. Thanks for a great meal and evening!More

Excellent food and service. We sat outside and were offered blankets as th evening was chilly. The menu was innovative and delicious. As anglophones we needed a bit of help with the menu, but this was offered generously.

How the good ratings? My wife and I had dinner on Sunday night. The food was crazy uneatable. Raw green beans?Raw scallops with under cooked risotto. Spaghetti made from celery root. Really far out cooking that I don't believe Anthony Bourdain would eat, if still...alive. Is this a different owner/chef than a few years ago? Even the wines we tried were poor. Would give them zero stars if possible. Wife would give the minus stars.More

I there, we understand you did not enjoy your dinner last week and we're sorry the food wasn't what you expected. Have you let your server know your scallops were undercooked? We would have happily replaced them for you. No need to insult us though,...More

Had to talk about this restaurant we stopped by on the way to the eastern townships. We were excited to try the tasting menu, but upon arrival were told today’s tasting menu featured an elk tartar (ok…) as an appetizer and a blood pudding (no...thanks…) for a main. They lost us at the blood pudding. So we ordered off the menu. Highlights: driving and wine pairings were not in the cards for me anyways and I had a pine kombucha. Highly recommend! We liked it so much, we ordered a second. The octopus was very good (if not a touch undercooked). The slaw purée was tasteless but the marinated onions were a great complement. Lowlights: the waiter was happy to explain to me when pressed that the “boeuf” (as it is simply seen on the menu) was a contre-filet (aka strip loin) that had been aged 90 days. I am pretty sure the average Quebecer has no idea what beef he is eating and what cut it is. Sadly, I am not your average Quebecer. This was the toughest piece of steak we had ever sunk teeth into. This was, at best, a sirloin and likely a bad flank steak. The accompaniments were very good but over a half the steak sat happily uneaten on the plate. No question from our waiter about the cut when we were done. I think he knew we called his bluff. False advertising? Perhaps not on the menu “boeuf” can mean many things, but after the description from the waiter, a swindle to be certain. The carrot risotto was highly acclaimed by other reviewers so we were pumped to give it a try. Think of a few pieces of Arborio rice swimming in a sea of velveeta cheese. With some interesting hard chunks and enoki mushrooms that made it almost edible. I was so hungry that I finished it for my wife. Oops. Should have thought about later. All told, $120 for a shoe-leather piece of meat that should have been aged a few more years in vinegar to loosen up the muscles that bounced like a bouncy ball off my teeth, a risotto cheese soup and some fine kombucha and octopus to start. Will avoid this establishment in the futureMore

Had dinner at the bar which turned out to be a great location to watch the staff interact while preparing meals. We two shared the five course testing platter which was absolutely delicious, well presented. We had PEI oysters to start the meal and an...outstanding local rosé from Dunham. The service was impeccable by a waiter who knew how to make you comfortable and was well informed. This is definitely a must go to when in Bromont but you do need a reservation.More

The wine parrings were a bit disappointing but the value for...it was good. There was no rush to be served and gone - something we all 4 appreciated.More

We went on a Saturday night for birthday celebrations (3) and had a reservation, which I highly recommend because it is a popular location and I saw many couples turned away due to a full restaurant. It is not an in-and-out kind of visit, so...people stay a while! We had a delicious orange wine, which was suggested to us by the sommelier who gave detailed explanations. I love an educational moment! Then most of us had the tasting menu + wine pairings, which was enjoyed by all. The boar and the beets were the most popular dishes of the table, they were amazing! Honestly, it was all amazing and perfectly paced. Our waitress gave us great service too. She picked up on it being the birthday of 3 people at the table, without any specific request from us (although we did make at least one comment about 1 birthday), and she brought desserts with candles. What a beautiful attention to detail!More

Excellent food! The carrot risotto was to die for. Staff was super friendly and the place was busy. Portions were large and I will certainly go back again.

This was our last stop for a meal at the end of a two week culinary ride through Quebec. Not only did we not have a bad meal on our journey, every meal we had was exceedingly good. But the lunch at Chardo was tops....Coming off a pretty good lunch the previous day at the Chateau Frontenac. But not just the food. Our waitress - who is also a proprietor - was so kind. Rarely do we get to say that these days. Alone she was serving no less than 20 guests. And everyone in the place seemed to soak up her vibe. We were five people, each selecting different items from the menu, and we were all in agreement, that this was the best restaurant on our journey. AND, we asked about the nodding bird on the bar. We got the full demo at our table.More
