10 Upscale Montreal Restaurants Worth Dressing Up For

As a woman, I have to admit that figuring out what to wear for a dinner date is always a challenge. Thoughts like, "If I wear a dress, will it be too much?" always rush through my mind and I end up toning down my wardrobe choices. So I thought, why not put together a list of restaurants where you don't have to worry about being overdressed?  It's time to dig out your best pair of heels and a cocktail dress, because these Montreal places love to see you make a fashion statement.

Le Club Chasse et Pêche

423 Rue Saint-Claude

This is a classic, romantic Montreal restaurant. Think Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando era. Dark, inviting and irresistibly charming ambiance of this place will take you back in time and make you dream.


Scarlet Esclusive

139 Rue Saint Paul O

Scarlet is a perfect combination of old-school rustic and edgy modern styles. Don't be afraid to wear bold colors and fashion statements that would be considered "over the top" anywhere else.


Ristorante Beatrice

1504 Rue Sherbrooke O

This is a perfect place for classy cocktail parties and light dresses.

Maison Boulud (Ritz Carlton)

1228 Rue Sherbrooke O

Cozy, yet upscale setting allows for posh wardrobe choices. Feel free to channel your inner Victoria or David Beckham.


Queue de Cheval

1181 Rue de la Montagne

Dark and rich atmosphere of Queue de Cheval will make you feel like you're in a classy cigar lounge. Imagine yourself in a James Bond movie and plan your wardrobe accordingly.


Rib N' Reef Steakhouse

8105 Boulevard Décarie

Rib N' Reef is a classic steakhouse, so think classic wardrobe à la little black Coco Chanel dress.


XO Le Restaurant

355 Rue Saint-Jacques

Inside Hollywood celebrities' favourite hotel (Le St-James) hides a gorgeous restaurant, XO. Vibrant decor with a lot of attention to details is exactly what your wardrobe can feel like.



626 Rue Marguerite d'Youville

Old Port's brand new addition is a breath of fresh air. It's cool, trendy and fun! You can easily wear all the latest fashion trends and totally feel at home inside Jellyfish.

1184 Place Phillips

This restaurant's decor is the perfect mix of playful and seductive atmospheres. Consequently, these two words characterize an ideal outfit for a dinner night at Jatoba.


Le Richmond

377 Rue Richmond

Rich, texturized, almost theatrical setting allows for a variety of fashion statements. When I think of Le Richmond, I think of Jessica Rabbit in her long sequin red dress.
