My friend and I came here on a Saturday night after reading the great reviews. We walked down into the basement where the restaurant is located and were seated promptly. Our waiter was very friendly and explained the whole menu to us. We decided on getting the meatballs for our appetizer and I chose the rabbit with a rosemary sauce... More

What a nice restaurant. The service was excellent and was great they took the time to describe each item on the menu and offer knowledgeable advice. The bruschetta starter was marvellous, the salads lovely, crisp & fresh and the entrees had everyone raving. The flavor of the fettuccine ai funghi porcine was amazing. They have an extensive wine list by... More

Food and service were excellent. The bruschetta served to all at the beginning was a great way to start. Even my teenage son, who doesn't eat raw tomatoes, loved it. All our dishes were tasty even though they were simply prepared. My dad and husband had excellent fish. My mom and I had the veal chop, nothing else on it... More

My husband had been here a couple of times and wanted to take me when we spent the weekend in Montreal where he was working. Da Emma did not disappoint, and we will be back. From the parking lot where the old brick building was beautifully lit, to the unique basement rife with history, the ambience was wonderful. We were... More

I came here for dinner on business. The waiter was very knowledgeable and explained the whole menu choices. There were lots of different choices to choose from, fish, meat, pasta and a few good appetizers. We started with the Buffalo cheese with prosciutto and tomatoes. Omg it was just delicious! Then I had the grilled salmon, with roasted potatoes and... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
