This is the first review I've written in over a month which is a long time for me to have gone without contributing something. Unfortunately, I've had some very difficult health issues that I am still struggling with, but hopefully I will be on the mend soon. Anyhow, enough about me and onto this wonderful little restaurant.

The space is cozy with nice little mason jar lights and flowers at... more

Fresh Market Food- I had the bone marrow special appetizer and my family the burrata with pesto. I also had the lamb ravioli with aged cheese and wine reduction. The homemade pasta was to die fo! The service from Philipe was so welcoming, friendly and informative. I could eat here every night!

Not that impressive. Cocktail is not really good. The plate doesn't have any signature taste, nothing really impress me :(

It is good and the concept for the food is great. My problem with this place is that they put cilantro everywhere, not only when it is not called for, but they don't tell the customers n the menu. I belong to the 10% of the world population who doesn't like cilantro. If you're okay with cilantro then it is great.

Nice ambiance. Nice booths if you're a larger party. Very accommodating.

Alexander Keith's Red Amber Ale - This is a refreshing beer, slightly reminiscent of a sour, but only lightly so.

Orange Méchanique - This cocktail tastes primarily of Jack Daniel's with a touch of Aperol. Not a bad cocktail, but nothing mind blowing.

Squid Ink Risotto - ONLY CAME WITH ONE SMALL SCALLOP which felt like... more

Was here for conference in Montreal and found this place by accident. Was having dinner next door and the restaurants shared the washroom. The vibe was interesting enough we returned the next night for snacks and drinks. Would have to say that this was an incredibly fun evening. The snacks were amazing and the drinks on point. They have an extensive wine menu per glass our server pointed us in... more

On a recent rainy Sunday in Old Montreal, we ran into a pretty wine bar with really nice florals out front to dry off and stepped back in time into a welcoming cafe offering smiles, drinks and good food. We felt very lucky! The atmosphere is rustic & homey ala 100 years ago as bars were in the 1970's (not newly done over and "quaint" or "kitschy" as century old places often are today).

In Montreal on vacay, we stopped by Bocata and glad we did. The dinner was absolutely delish! We got burrata to start with which came with amazingly toasted Pita. The dinner with lamb ravioli and Cod was super rich and wine selection was great too.

Round that out with a great service and we have a 5 star place!

Food quality is good but over priced for what you get. We were shown to the bar after the host stated it would be a long wait for a table and we didn't feel very welcomed as one of the waiter stood in our way for quite some time as he was clearing the table and didn't even acknowledge we were trying to get by to the bar. Once we got our food, that was it. No one even checked in on us. Quite a... more

I went to this small bar early tonight with friends for an early dinner. We had a crave for lobster so ordered lobster roll and lobster tagliatelle. They are amazing! The lobster roll is made from good brioche and fresh lobster. The slight sourness of the veggie inside is refreshing. The tagliatelle is very rich and full of flavor, with a lot of spinach and tomato. I love the fact that they put... more

I used to like this place a lot but unfortunately the food this time was just ok. The service is bad. The waiters aren't friendly and they take a while to seat you. I don't think I'll be back.

We arrived in Montreal late, tired and hungry. We decided to stop in and we're glad we did. We ordered the Mushroom Cavatelli and it was delicious! Our server was great and attentive! Offered to make our kids a virgin cocktail which was very yummy according to our 10 year old. Music and atmosphere were entertaining and inviting.

This is a very cute brunch place in the old port. The food was quite good, but it's definitely overpriced. Eggs, bread, beans, and a bit of meat should never cost almost $20! My friend got a chickpea dish and that was also way overpriced. Those are cheap ingredients! You are basically paying to eat at a nicely-decorated place at the old port.

I made reservations online and, shameless plug, let them know I got engaged the day before. When my fiance and I came in, we got to choose our table. They even gave us free glasses of champagne to celebrate. The decor was cute and the food was fresh. I got the squid ink risotto which had a soft, luscious scallop and perfectly cooked prawn. The risotto was nice and salty (just how I like it)! My... more

The chicken with 50/50 salad and fries is amazing. If you are eating with someone get the chicken for two. It's so much food and a great deal. Wine and espresso is also excellent. Would definitely come back and recommend!

The Portuguese chicken at Taberna is out of this world! It's incredibly juicy and flavourful, the fries are delicious and crispy as well. The interiors are very rustic yet elegant, and the prices are very reasonable (~$20/person) for generous portions. It's become my go-to place for a casual lunch with friends - but beware that the wait for a table can get quite long, especially at peak lunch... more

Fantastic meal and service all around. I sat at the bar and was instantly greeted by the bartender who was friendly and helpful.

Wines by the glass were nice (I tried 2 reds), $1 oysters were amazing. Loved the New Brunswick pearls, and I had the special soup (white pea puree + dumplings) and the Lobster roll.

Everything was delicious. I don't think I'd order the Lobster roll again because it... more

We made a reservation for bar seating (our fav way to dine) and had a wonderful night here. We started off with the patatas bravas, octopus, and cured mackerel. The mackerel was outstanding-- absolutely a delight. The octopus was tender and the patatas bravas were warm and soft when biting into it.

Another star of the meal was the lobster carbonara pasta. I loved that despite the "carbonara"... more

Cute little place with a warm, semi-nautical theme.
Waiter and barkeep, Charles, knows his stuff behind the bar.
Appetizers were good, but need some work. The peppers did not have enough cheese on them and the smelt were lukewarm.
Chocolate cookie dessert was very good, warm and gooey like it should be.
I will say that there were a lot of regulars there on the evening we went and the staff... more

Just got back from Bocata and wow, was it an amazing experience. My boyfriend and I made reservations a week prior since we're here for thanksgiving break but we weren't sure what to expect but dang, we were blown away. From the service to the ambience to the food, everything was exceptional! If I lived here, I'd probably swing by at least once a week.

We had intended to go to Olive et Gourmando down the street, but the line was out the door. Hard pass. We went to the first place we saw that was open and had eggs and were not disappointed at all.

I've eaten here a few times for lunch and it's a decent meal, slightly fancier than our normal work lunch spots. Nothing I've had is bad, but I think the sauce is a little lacking in flavor compared to other Portugese restaurants in the city.

I normally get the poutine, which has the chicken and the chourico. It's good, but again the sauce is just not enough to make it exciting. Fries are good... more

The poutine was nice, loved the fries cut, and the piri-piri / chourico topping. The sauce wasn't think enough to my taste, but flavor was ok.Service was a little slow considering it wasn't packed. Was a little pricey, 35$ with a beer. I would probably give them another try,... more

This spot which I was most excited for was the most disappointing. We had poutine and it was soggy, and mine had ton of chicken bones in it.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at Bocata for out last night in Montréal. After a slight snag with our Resy reservation - apparently the restaurant did not have a record of it, even though I had confirmation - you might want to call to make sure.

Found this gem on Resy. Loving the app so giving it the proper shoutout. Came here for an early solo dinner at the bar and it was exactly what I wanted. The specials were a salad and a fish; I listened but I already knew what I wanted.

If you're hungry, on a budget and a one hour lunch break, try Taberna!

The menu is quite simple and you can check it out online first. Make rezos for lunch cause it can get a bit busy. The noise level's somewhat high so you do have to talk louder to hear each other.

The chicken plates are great no brainer options for only $12. The fries are really, really nice. They're ever so slighty sweet,... more

We wanted a delicious but laid back dinner, and we scored at Bocata! We were able to go without a reservation on a Wednesday night. We started with the special appetizer- panzanella. The tomatoes were delicious, but the dish was too salty. The buratta was very good- it's served with anchovies (which I personally don't like but my wife does!).
