Thank you for a great evening. Please pass along our thanks to Chef Nico, the plates he made for our tasting menu were amazing. It was one of the nicest and most memorable meals we have had in a very long time. The service was impeccable and the wine pairings were perfect. Thank you again for everything, we truly enjoyed it.

Everything was wonderful! Our waitress was friendly and did a great job making recommendations for appetizers and dinner entrees. We ordered 4 courses and the food was exceptional! Even the kids loved each course! Cozy, quaint place with excellent food and service!

Had a wonderful dinner - we were visiting Montreal for a long weekend. The service was great, the food was super tasty and the ambiance was very romantic. It is somewhat loud given the small space but still manages to be intimate. Be prepared though, you will wait quite a while on the food if our experience was any indication.

Great restaurant and great service (I am a 49 year old Indian male for curious readers). We ended up getting some local beers, lobster tails and fish (My wife had swordfish unless I am mistaken). The ambience was quaint and the service flawless that made my wife, son and I feel like a million bucks. Exceptional staff that worked hard to accommodate our requests. Food was very good and tasted like they were made with the freshest ingredients but the food didn't taste exceptional if you ask me (or my family).

Amazing, simply amazing. An exquisite meal and phenomenal service from start to finish. The tasting menu was exceptional - each dish was better than the last. Our server was a wealth of culinary knowledge and very helpful selecting two excellent bottles of wine to pair with the meal. Highly recommended!

We had an amazing time at Bocata, service was excellent and the wine that was suggested by the sommelier (who wasn't working but still came to help us) was ecactly what we were looking for.

I was looking for a special place to celebrate my birthday. Le Bocata was the perfect choice, a delicious meal, and the best service. The atmosphere was warm and intimate. Is perfect for a date or just to enjoy a meal in a nice place.

I have been going to Bocata for 5 years now and it is by far one of my favorite places, not only in Montreal, but anywhere! It is an intimate warm friendly family like place. The food is high quality and prepared to your desire. Mitch, Charles and Victoria are fantastic (as I’m sure are the rest whom i don’t know as well) i would tell anyone to try this place, you will end up loving it!!

We enjoyed our meal in this Vieux Port restaurant very much. The ambience is cozy, not overly loud, the wine list was great, as was every dish we had, including dessert. Our server Frederic was very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommended, and we'll be back on our next trip to Montréal, one of our favorite cities.

This restaurant in Old Montreal pays tribute to the ocean with its décor and menu. Try the New Brunswick smelt, served with lemon and aioli, the snow crab croquettes, the lobster rolls and clam chowder, the warm octopus salad or roast sea bass.

Tagliatelle carbonara served in a lobster bisque sauce with shallots, sundried tomatoes and basil is a must try at Bocata. The egg arrives in its half shell, seasoned with salt and pepper, ready to mix in with the pasta for added richness. The smoked bacon is essential to the dish, and the lobster is an added (and very welcome!) twist on a classic carbonara.

I’ve been a huge fan of Barroco, Bocata’s ‘big sister’ resto next door, but recently I’ve taken to the small plates and tapas at Bocata. The gorgeous baroque, almost-gothic stone and candlelight décor is the perfect setting for a glass of wine and an oyster platter. And DO have the patta negra ham and the tomato toast! It’s basically Barcelona by way of Old-Montreal.
