Ristorante Bis was recommended by the concierge in our hotel. We wanted a casual but nice Italian restaurant. We arrived about 8:30 without reservations and there was one table that had just been vacated. Marcello greeted us warmly and seated us as soon as the...More

Hello Wanderlust781, We were very sorry to hear about your recent experience at our restaurant. Please understand that the pressure is on prior to shows; most of the reservations arrive and leave all at once and most clients want to eat as quickly as possible...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
