The service was so hi-level (to much for me) that you expect the same for the food and it was not the case. Belle présentation dans les assiettes mais les plats étaient sans goût recherché, fade et aucune surprise pour le palet. Et côté vin, rien de bien recherché ou nouveau... Et à ce prix si élevé et à un service aussi guindé, on s'attendait à beaucoup plus. Nous avons été donc très déçus de Chez Sophie.

I know it's best to keep the review short here but I cannot help but gush over this place. This was our first visit to Chez Sophie and at the risk of sounding cliche it will not be our last.
From the moment we stepped inside until it came time to leave we were treated with a level of grace and professionalism that is rare today. We arrived on time and our table was ready and waiting. We truly were made to feel like guests of the restaurant and our server was extremely professional while warm and welcoming at the same time. The service was extraordinary. The entire staff was helpful and genuinely wanted our dining experience to be as memorable as possible. I am not sure even where to begin to describe the food. It was incredible. The menu was clear and the descriptions of the dishes were spot on. When the food started to arrive at our table the plating was truly artful and was second only to the flavours and textures of the food itself. My wife's seafood dish was served on one most masterfully executed risottos I have ever had the pleasure to taste. My duck breast was cooked so perfectly I practically shed a tear when it was finished. Those are just a couple of the highlights from the meal but I could rave about every element from the delicate and flavorful purees to the perfectly portioned and prepared veg. Nothing on my plate and nothing that hit our table felt like an after-thought. The focus of the kitchen and the overall attention to detail by Chez Sophie and their staff is to be celebrated. This was one of the best and most memorable dining experiences of my life. I know there are no Michelin star restaurants in Canada but if I had the power to compel the Michelin guide people to come see one place in Canada it would be Chez Sophie. It's that good. I have yet to find it's equal in Montreal, Toronto or anywhere else in Canada. Bravo. We will return.

Quelle belle trouvaille! Nous avons beaucoup aimé! Excellent service, le personnel est attentionné et présent, bonne connaissance des produits. Originalité dans les plats de service qui apporte une touche agréable. Portions parfaites pour le lunch et bon rapport qualité prix en table d’hôte. Nous y retournerons sans faute.

OMG...absolutely fabulous! The food was ethereal, service was top notch...just a terrific evening with foodie friends. I would take the train from Kingston to Montreal just to eat here again! Everything was perfect. This was definitely one of my favourite meals of all time. It was expensive, but worth every penny. This small unassuming restaurant is exactly what I look for when I want a special treat. Small, so noise level was not an issue, nicely laid out, so not cheek to jowl with other diners. Lovely diversity of choices (all four of us chose something different for starters and main course), and since serving size was manageable, we all had room for a decadent dessert! I would HIGHLY recommend this wonderful little gem to anyone who has good taste in food and is looking for a memorable experience!

We would have appreciated hotter plates, even thought the food and tasting were outstanding.

Also, we received our main course before having selected our wine glass, which was a little disappointing.

Overall, very nice restaurant to go to for a good occasion.

Service incroyable, on se sent comme une reine! La nourriture est exceptionnelle. Nous étions 4 convives à table et avons opté pour le menu dégustation. Accord vin-mets digne de mention. Nous avons remarqué des différences notables entre les quantités offertes dans les plats de chacun. Par exemple, un des convives a pris le mille-feuilles aux pistaches qui se résume à deux bouchées. Deux bouchées divines j'en conviens mais l'autre convive, qui a choisi le pain perdu, a eu une portion plus que généreuse et une qualité tout aussi incroyable. Si j'avais une remarque constructive à faire c'est celle-là: tenter un peu plus d'avoir une équité dans les quantités offertes à chacun des plats.

Belle cuisine classique et délicieuse, mais qui manque de légumes dans l'assiette principale et de plats de légumes en entrées. Très beau lieu, avec un un très bon goût pour chaque détail. Service de grand classe. Prix élevés qui réservent ce restaurant à de rares fois.

Can’t wait to return ! Super lovely creative food and beautiful SKILLED service ! We felt we were in Paris. Our seating preference for next time would be more to the front of the room, near the bar area and window... pricey... but worth every mouthful and sip !

On se sent super bienvenus dès notre arrivée.
Tout le personnel rencontré nous sourie et nous salue.
Le menu gastronomique comportait 4 services.
Notre serveur et le sommelier ont été impeccables.
Pour chaque service on peut choisir parmi un assortiment de plats.
Nous avons choisi l'option d'appariement des vins et des plats et les vins variaient pour chaque convive selon les plats choisis. Nous recommandons vivement cette option.
Les mets choisis étaient très bien présentés et savoureux.
Nous étions 6 et c'est unanimement et chaleureusement que nous recommandons ce restaurant.

The service from the minute you walk in is wonderful, the dishes are gorgeous for the eyes as for the palate, and the décor is simply beautiful, making you want to take your time to enjoy your moment at Chez Sophie.
