Pastel should be clearing up on any restaurant awards in Canada. It’s an incredible gastronomic experience. There was no menu, just the set tasting course. Service is friendly, professional and slick. The combination of ingredients appear simple, but after my first bite of each course...I was left thinking “wow”.More

CO- The physical and emotional sensation experienced when eating something that is truly amazing, usually resulting from stimulation of the taste buds and usually accompanied by a "hmmmmmm" sound. This is so far, the best culinary experience I have had in many years. I really...can't say more about it, others will need to experience this. An explosion of flavors, making your tastebuds go haywire. The products are top notch and fresh. The open kitchen is also a wonderful concept. This is a must. Thank you again Alexandre for the Scallop Ceviche, it was simply amazing. Maxime DesrochersMore

Hands down one of the best culinary experience in Canada. Food : The attention to detail, the techniques employed and the perfect mix of textures made this 6-course meal a divine experience. 10/10 Service: Our lovely waitress offered an outstanding service, and the sommelier, Olivier,...truly helped to elevate our night. Too-class service. 10/10 Wine pairings: Absolutely perfect. 10/10 Decor and ambiance : It’s a more laid-back decor than Toque or Europea would offer, but still classy and enjoyable. 8.5/10 The overall experience 10/10, we will definitely return.More

This was quite an experience. The food was of course spectacular but the staff made the evening memorable. We got to meet the chef and all the servers went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. A bit pricey, but perfect for a...special occasion. Nathalie et KimMore

•Friendly staff, open cuisine you can walk through. Local and simple products. Good desserts and creative presentation •too much waiting between plates. some plates arrived cold. Mostly basic products Overall good food, not extraordinary, but way too expensive. Much better restaurants for same price tag...in the area.More

This was our second visit to Pastel and once again it was an amazing experience. The food at Pastel is original and spectacular. The taste combinations and the presentations are wonderful. We sat at the bar so that we could have a view of the...kitchen and to enjoy the attentions of the barman, Jonathan. His knowledge of the food, the information he provided us about the wines and drinks and his warm, professional manner with us (and the other clients) made our dinner a special occasion (although quite honestly, all of the staff were great and they all made us feel at home). It was a great experience and we are looking forward to our next visit.More

Went for dinner with family. The restaurant was very careful to ask about not only food allergies, but also particular likes and dislikes. We all had the ten course tasting menu and were blown away. The restaurant has a Japanese interpretation to dishes and each...course was inventive, tasty and very different in interpretation from the others. The wine pairing was good, and flexible enough so that they adapted the next wine according to our reaction to the previous one. Service was friendly. The explanation to each dish and each wine was super good and knowledgeable. The only (slight) disappointment was that one member of our party has the non-alcoholic drink pairing and these were a bit too odd tasting. Nevertheless, overall a superb evening, slightly pricey by Montreal standards, but absolutely worth every penny.More

Wonderfully designed and decorated restaurant. It features an open kitchen concept, which was a lot of fun. The food was exemplary from start to finish -- well choreographed, prepared, and presented. And so delicious! The staff was a delight to interact with -- knowledgeable, observant,...and accommodating in the best possible ways. We were a party of two enjoying the menu découverte experience on a Saturday evening. I highly recommend this restaurant, and I look forward to returning myself.More
