We loved this place! Highly recommend the $29 tapas special if you can make it on tues- thurs. You get six dishes per person, which was a great value and definitely enough food. Every dish we had was delicious and well prepared. Highly recommend the goat cheese, the mushroom gratine, the Portuguese chicken and the flourless chocolate cake. Service was great too!

The main courses we chose were the cod and pork cheek. I have to say I love that cod a lot. The crispy fish skin melt with creamy mashed potatoes.

This gem of a place is located in a nice little neighborhood. We started off with a shrimp risotto dish that was topped with a spicy oil...really nice. Then we had a flank steak with a lovely sauce and Cod on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes with bok choy. Both were prepared very well. There was only one server on duty, and it was OK that night, but it would've been a problem if it got busier.... more

In the cute Duluth street, i'm not sure that vertige really specializes in a specific style. The food is strongly classic but well done. Obviously, I noted the very cool wine cork tables, covered with corks of nice producers from around the world with a strong portuguese majority, at least for the one table I was seated at. The wine list is very interesting too! And extremely affordable. All... more

Fantastic Restaurant - Don't Miss It
August 02, 2013

My family celebrated its last night in Montreal by going to this gem of a restaurant. Without exception, every dish that we had was excellent, beautifully presented and well timed so that we were never rushed. The service was fine as well. We enjoyed escargot, various dishes with fois gras, boeuf tartare, and it was fabulous!

Went with a group of ladies for a bachelorette party dinner- Did the prix fixe menu and it was really a value- 3 courses, all of which were excellent, and a really fun atmosphere for a group. I would definitely recommend!

Cool bar just between the Sherwood and Mont Royal Metro. It's bigger than it looks. Decent beer list, many different types of beers on tap (local as well), and reasonably priced. They also have live music.

Don't go hungry, unless you just want a bag of chips - this is a BAR ONLY.

It's difficult to be objective about Montréalaise restaurants - the standard is so high that you find yourself putting 5-star rating for everywhere.

occasionally outstanding, suffers by comparison to its neighber (aux pieds de cochon) - but here you can walk in without a reservation. the lamb chops are good, some of the merguez and other tapas are outstanding. occcasional dishes are prepared almost without thought, others shine. still worth a visit on a rainy day, or for having a drink with your future ex wife.

L'un des meilleurs restaurants de Montréal par rapport qualité/prix. Un restaurant trop méconnut aux yeux du monde à mon avis.

Le décor et feutré à mon goût personnel. Bref, c'est mon avis et je le partage !

Vertige serves new-age cuisine by the European-trained chef Thierry Baron. This restaurant is an addition to the otherwise Greek mix of the Duluth strip, and the French-inspired menu. Vertige serves the European wines in classic decor. Group menus are also available; see the website for further details.
