Marcello greeted Rick and I at front door and that launched and exquisite evening of marvelous wine, food & service. The ambiance was intimate, the wine was spectacular, and the food was simply delicious. Thank you for a fabulous dining experience!

and say 'hello' to Marcello, the manager there. My wife had the gnocchi and I had what was the best linguine with clams I ever ate. The food is just perfect and the service, led by Marcello, is top notch. Do not miss Bis!

The food was delicious. the Lamb Ragout over linguine was superb. We also had the veal osso bucco and the veal piccata. Both just full of flavor, tender and delicious. Nice wine, too. Don't miss this gem!

Our experience at Bis was probably the worst I've ever experienced at a restaurant anywhere. My friend was visiting from England and it was embarrassing that such a thing should happen in Montreal when we were looking forward to dining there. It was so bad...More

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

We spent about $70CDN for dinner for 2, with an 2 entrees and a split appetizer (try the gnudi!) and a glass of wine. So worth it!
