A lovely restaurant in the Le Plateau district of Montreal. We sat by the open windows and started with some delicious sangria. We decided on the tasting menu and I HIGHLY recommend you try this. Everything we tried was superb (saffron risotto w/grilled shrimp, foie gras, roasted cod w/onion confit, lamb, molten choc cake). Starting with salmon tartare, which made... More

Back again for the fourth time!! Enjoyed it all from the ravioli, the goat cheese salad, the torchon of foie gras, the lamb tajine and finally the cod :-) Seat down, relax and enjoy the flavors :-).

We stopped by Vertige after reading the reviews but were not impressed. My husband had shrimp ravioli and beef short ribs and I had the filet and chocolate dessert. Although everything was good and cooked properly, it was not extremely good or memorable. The staff was kind and we do not regret coming here, but would go elsewhere if in... More

Expecting great things from such a highly rated restaurant, we found first that the actual menu and the menu online were quite different with many fewer offerings on the former. We also found a Lone Ranger server - one woman doing all but cooking - seating people, taking drink and food orders, delivering and clearing food and ringing up bills.... More

I almost don't want to write the review because it was that good and I want it all for me. Visited Montreal for F1 race with party of 7, including 2 children. Excellent food and service. I can't stop thinking about the tartare, pate and duck breast. My 7-year old nephew's new favorite food is escargot. My brother-in-law is still... More

This is wonderful food in a great neighborhood. We have been dining here over the last 3 years when attending the F1 race. The small plates menu is excellent & the quality superb. The owner, Fadia, is one of the reasons we love this restaurant. When in Montreal, please go...you will not be disappointed.

One of the best meals I have ever experienced! The restaurant is small and comfortable, very intimate. Great for a couples night out or the large family dinner-they accommodate both wonderfully! The front windows give a great view of the street or sit further back in the restaurant for a more intimate and quite meal. The food was outstanding. We... More

My wife and I enjoyed an amazing meal at Vertige. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were warmly greeted and had impeccable service. We ordered the tasting menu and each course was fantastic. The decor is very warm and inviting. The quality of food and presentation was great and the meal was very affordable given the multiple courses... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
