Great Potential, Not at the Top

Kitchenette is in the Village on Rene Levesque East, well below where all the action takes place, so not many people know it exists. You can also easily miss it with its inconspicuous entrance and signs. The décor is simple yet modern with wood floors and a couple of lounge chairs on one side. Kitchenette's menu is certainly very inviting: Southern inspired with French influence. It's like they combined French finesse with Southern soul. The menu is seasonal so it does change all the time, but they have some items that have stuck around for a while: pulled beef taco, flat iron streak, braised short ribs, and blackened fish have become staples We always thought the service at Kitchenette could use a little improvement. The waiting staff is definitely more French than Southern (as opposed to the aforementioned Icehouse); you don't feel the welcoming hospitality as you walk in. We've been here a few times and on more than one occasion our waiter seemed to either be distraught or have something else on his mind. When we think of Montreal's trendy “market-fresh” cuisine scene, we mostly think of French-inspired restaurants. Kitchenette comes up as a breath of fresh air in comparison, with its Southern influence. And even though we want to try every item on the menu, our experience thus far never got to that “wow” level.

Excellent service, portion trop petite

Nous avions entendu parler en bien de cette cuisine ouverte. Le service fût excellent, la carte des vins très intéressante et la qualité de la nourriture en ligne avec ce qu'on s'attend de e type de restaurants. Par contre, on atteint un niveau creux en terme de quantité de nourriture. Après avoir mangé 3 entrées, 1 plat principal et un dessert, j'étais prêt à aller manger une pizza au coin de la rue. À 280$ pour notre couple, on aurait aimé être rassassié. Dommage.

Nous aimerions vous informer qu'il y a eu un changement d'administration depuis septembre 2013. Les photos et les commentaires présents sur ce site ne sont plus représentatifs de la qualité qu'offre le restaurant actuellement.

The food was wonderful--creative without being too precious. Tuna tartare nachos, short ribs, and cod were perfectly prepared and unique in their flaver and presentation. The service was solicitous and charming. Kitchenette provided a perfect evening out.

What a wonderful restaurant. We couldn't have been more happy with our meal. Between the salmon tartare, duck confit and waffle, and the crab cake burger, we were all impressed with the food, and furthermore by our attentive and helpful server. We had a long winded lunch as we were planning the rest of our day so we wouldnt be stuck in the cold weather doing it, and our server (who was also the owner/manager) didn't make a single move to rush us out! In fact, as we we're paying we had a great conversation about other restaurants we should visit it in Montreal with the owner. A great experience I will recommend to everyone!

Great flavor combinations. We ordered the duck confit and the cod with foie gras. Duck was delicious. Veggies were all great. Cod itself was a little lacking, but it was very good over all. We went on a Thursday night with a reservation, only two other tables full when we got there so really didn't need the reservation. Small, quiet, nice staff. Enjoyable just the two us by the end of the meal.

Service was excellent, the food was tasty, well prepared and the pulled beef teriyaki tacos are a must. The only negative was this rather loud and at times overly boisterous group of ten across from us who made it imppsible for our party to at times hear each other....but that is beyond the restaurants ability to control..we will be back

A decent choice for a meal on a Tuesday evening Greeted by waiter who firmly mentioned that we'd neglected to mention that we were there via a Living Social coupon. However, his service was good throughout the rest of the evening.

My wife and I planned this restaurant as a stop on our honeymoon. We had read good things on our research prior to our visit to Montreal and looked forward to a casual, yet refined, dining experience. We got just that. The food was delicious. Our server was very engaging and fun yet slow at times considering we were one of three tables in the restaurant. However, this may have been because he was giving us our space to enjoy each other's company and savor the complex flavors yet simple presentation of our dishes. Overall, it was a great experience. Our only regret is that the restaurant was not a bit busier; we wanted a more lively experience in one of Montreal's livelier neighborhoods.

Super quaint place, great service, excellent food. We had oysters, excellent. Albacore tuna tartar nachos, incredible. I had the mix seafood soup, all the seafood was great quality and seasoning was just perfect, my partner had the braised short rib. Wow, it was super tender and flavourful. Dessert we had the caramel popcorn and peanut sundae, super delightful. Great folding experience, a definite go to!
