Visited early on a weekday. Service was excellent. Dinner was perfect, from appetizer to dessert. If we lived in the area, we'd be regulars.

We had dinner here and enjoyed the experience immensely. Jeremy, our waiter, was attentive, helpful and friendly. He selected the perfect wine to go with our bison. and made us feel like family. Thank you.

Served with finesse, delicious - one of us had the scallops and the other the lobster-filled ravioli. Excellent. The celery soup with maple syrup was also wonderful.

We found the food here very good. We had 2 children with us and the slow service was a problem as the kids became tired and bored. I know there is an issue with getting staff since COVID so can't blame the restaurant but good...to know in advance. The adults' food was delicious but the childrens' menu is an afterthought for sure. One of the child's pizza came almost burned and the grilled cheese sandwich was not tasty. It seemed to have sauerkraut on it which most children do not enjoy.More

My husband and I just arrived home from a wonderful two day trip to Montebello to the Chateau. After reading some reviews, I decided to reserve the Discovery Dinner for two this past Monday evening. It was one of the best culinary experiences of our...lives. All 5 courses were absolutely amazing...as was the wine pairing. The server was equally wonderful. We could not provide higher recommendations for this establishment's discovery menu (chef's choice). We have already emailed them our sincere gratitude.More

After a visit to the nearby Omega Parc we dropped by this restaurant for an early lunch without any reservations. We were the first customers of the day and were immediately seated. Montebello is a small town where the principal employer is the nearby Chateau...Montebello, managed by Accord. Napoleon has presented an overly ambitious menu, apparently feeling they have to compete with the Chateau. They can't and they don't. The best plate ordered was Xavier's grilled cheese. In the writer's opinion this restaurant should give up any pretense of serving "haute cuisine" and try and develop an expertise in the midrange.More

We have dined here several times over the years and have recommended it to friends. Like most restaurants today they are short staffed but manage to make it work. My partner had the calamari with Caesar salad . He asked that they come together along...with my pasta. That did not happen. My pasta was delivered after my partner finished his calamari. His Caesar arrived with my pasta. I am a slow eater so basically I watched him eat then he watched me. So frustrating but I am giving the place a pass because of pandemic and our previous dinners. Our poor sever Cassandra was run off her feet. It is never an easy job but especially now.More

The staff were fantastic and the food was outstanding. We decided to go for the tasting / discovery / chef's menu where we had 5 courses and also opted for the wine pairing.. Value for money was exceptional. The chef is quite talented and the...wait staff was great explaining what we were getting and how the wine paired with it. truly one of the best we have had in many years,More

Not sure, but they do have penne arribiata, but you would have to ask them to be sure. I will be back there within the next two weeks, and will find out and post.
