Found like place on Le Phillips Square. We ended up having 2 bottles of wine with our meal. The food is very good and the service in attentive! We splurged on the dinner so $158 US is what we paid for my wife and I.

Our family of 3 were staying in the Square Phillip hotel and ate here for dinner on the first night. It was delicious. Love the seafood linguine and daughter loved the lasagna. The service and food were outstanding. It is a very friendly and welcoming place. The chocolate cake was very dry and not to our taste, but everything else... More

We had a wonderful meal at Zia. My son has osso bucco, we all tasted it, it was heavenly. So tender and very tasty. The lemoncello cake is to die for. The carrot soup was superb. The pasta with meat sauce was great. A good bottle of wine. Don't miss this restaurant.

We found this place via TripAdvisor and the positive reviews convinced us to go here. Very casual dining, connected to a hotel. My husband had the ossobuco (pork) and was told by the waiter that he would be surprised at how tender it was. Gotta say he was right. I had the veal Marsala, and the veal was grilled (or... More

The place was really busy, so that leads me to believe that locals like this pizza. However, this pizza was barely average next to NYC standards. Service was good and quick though.

We were staying in the Le Square Phillips Hotel, had been walking around all afternoon in the muggy heat, and just wanted to find a quiet and reasonably close-by restaurant for dinner. After reading a few reviews on TA, we decided to give Trattoria Zia a try. And we are glad we did! The restaurant is not glitzy and has... More

We wanted a quieter place for dinner, and our hotel recommended this. It is away from the, dare I say, Disneyesque, atmosphere in Old Town Montreal and St.Catherine St, although steps away from St. Catherine East and Cathedral Promenade shopping. It is busier as a lunch place, they say, but we thoroughly enjoyed the calm. Our waiter was attentive and... More

The food is fabulous!! We had the mussels, risotto and gluten free spaghetti and they were all outstanding. Menu isn't large but they get it right!

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
