Meet the owner

When Charles-Antoine Crête told his mother he wanted to become a chef, she gave him her full approval. Later, he found himself at the Institute of Tourism and Hospitality of Quebec (ITHQ). And then, with some good luck, he found himself at  le Toqué.

"If the Toqué had not existed, if Normand Laprise hadn't taken so much risk, the Quebec restaurant industry would not be where it is today," says Charles-Antoine. "The Toqué will always be a part of me, it's my roots!"

    Thank you for the excellent meal and service! Although the restaurant is normally quite loud, we were able to enjoy a quieter Sunday evening in a corner table. Each item on the tasting menu was perfectly timed, seasoned and presented. I loved the playfulness of the food combinations and the flavours were "in your face" and yet well balanced. I cannot even choose a favourite! Alexandra was brilliant - soft in her approach, positive, engaging, and so very helpful with her expertise/advice. Thanks for making my return trip here and my intro of this restaurant to a friend just perfect. Cheers!

    Everyone was very friendly. The food was outstanding. Every course was a winner. My daughter arrived 1 hour late, which delayed our departure by 30 min (people waiting for our table). Nevertheless, the staff did not rush our meal. Lots of food for everyone- so skip lunch!

    The food was excellent and entirely bizarre. At a certain point there was a giant pillar of sparklers and yelling across the entire dining room while In Da Club by 50 Cent played in the background while I ate corn mousse. It was probably the most technically excellent service we received our entire stay in Montréal and I was quite pleased with the wine list--the Ganevat Cote du Jura blanc was an excellent accompaniment to our entire meal. Bravo, only in Montréal.

    This was one of the most innovative cuisines we have ever eaten anywhere in the world. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Canada and a must for anyone visiting Montreal. My daughter has a lot of allergies and they were very accommodating and both my daughters loved their meals.

    In summary: amazing food but abysmal service by our main server. After some deliberation, we settled on à la carte dining. The lobster and bone marrow, the tomato soup, and the gnocchi with chanterelles were the shining stars of dinner. Where Toqué relies on the freshness of its raw ingredients, Montreal Plaza plays with bold flavours. Our main server (Alexandre) was by far the weakest part of the meal -- countless times throughout the meal, we tried to get his attention without success. We had prolonged lulls waiting simply for our empty dishes to be taken away and waited almost 30 mins after finishing our main course before having to ask for a dessert menu. Other servers in the restaurant saw the negligence and helped with service after seeing our many failed attempts at getting Alexandre's attention. Thank you to the auxiliary staff for rescueing this evening from being an absolute disaster. Overall: food - 9/10, main service - 2/10. Simply put, if you want great food with perfect service, we recommend Toqué. If you're looking for a more affordable option and don't care about the service portion as much, Montreal Plaza is your best bet.

    My fiance and I had an extraordinary dining experience at Montreal Plaza. Although our table was not ready when we first arrived, the hostess made sure to find a spot for us to review the menu and enjoy a glass of wine. Once we sat down for dinner, our waitress was equally attentive. She fully understood the menu, provided helpful explanations of the night's specials, and even made suggestions for where we should eat throughout the remainder of our stay in Montreal. Each dish we ordered was flavorful and beautifully presented. We are are still talking about the delicious Carrot Cake at the end of the night! We were there for three hours and wish we could have stayed for many more. Thank you!

    My only complaint was the loud obnoxious nose that passes for modern popular music -seems out of place in such an elegant room - delicious food -portions on the small side but the boldness of flavor makes up for that - super friendly service.well worth a visit !
