Le Serpent serves Italian-inspired contemporary cuisine. Situated at the border of Old Montreal and Griffintown, the restaurant doesn't have a flashy sign, a GPS is a necessity to get there. I was tempted to explore the menu for a while, but also attracted by the industrial design, and glad that I got to visit with my mother when she was in town!

Restaurant Candide vividly. It was a cold winter day in December, not so long after the restaurant opened. I had a good experience, but it took me almost around a year and a half to return. The food wasn't just all about consist, yet it was better.
Ristorante Beatrice, formerly known as Bice, is located in the Golden Square Miles where the museums are, as well as one of the areas populated with restaurants. It offers a variety of savoury Italian dishes that are prepared with seasonal fresh ingredients. During the summer and fall, they open up the garden-style dining space, which resembles a terrace, but better.
Intercontinental Hotel of Hong Kong, Yan Toh Heen is recognized as one of the world's finest Chinese restaurants that specializes in Cantonese cuisine, and also the recipient of 2-michelin stars!
HVOR, meaning "where" in Danish (pronounced "vor"), brought a new dining concept to Montreal's food scene. There's no menu, and everything is up to the chef, hence just like the Nordic "omakase", where the chef decides what to serve. As the waiter told us that there's a bit of Japanese influence on chef S'Arto's creations, I found it, coincidentally, matched with his dining concept!
Rich Table, locating in the Hayes Valley, is a farm-to-table restaurant that showcases the culinary vision of Chefs Evan and Sarah Rich. Everything on the menu looked very appetizing. This style of restaurant has been a favorite of mine lately, because it is always an interesting dinner experience to see what the chefs got to surprise the diners. As much as I love to order the "chef's pick", I went with a friend who preferred a la carte. Nonetheless, it was definitely one of the restaurants that I am certain to go back whenever I visit San Francisco again.
Hôtel Herman, unfortunately, is a restaurant, not a hotel for lodging. However, the vibe and the food were simple, yet with sophisticated and interesting flavors. It has recently be ranked as the No.15 by Canada's 100 Best. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
Le Mousso, who came from an artistic family. There is only one menu available, and with the concept of "minimalist plates, with ambiance and music."
