Dining in Montreal- what would you suggest for 2 special meals

we havent been to montreal in years and are hoping to go this fall. We are looking for dinner suggestions for montreal's best- 2 special meals - looking for great food/ambiance/experience. Cost is not a factor. Also, some lunch suggestions would be great- especially a great crepe place. Thank you!

We really like Guy & Dodo and Il Cortile. Friends of ours never go to Montreal w/o at least one dinner @ Gibby's but we are not big steak lovers so rarely go there.
Have you found a place to stay? ( I noticed your other post re: Oct 3 & St. james...)

And, Lemeac is often recommended but I don't like the way they "pile the food" ( Google it to see what I mean.) I know a lot of restaurants do the "pile presentation" but I hate it.

How about letting me know about Vogue if you end up staying there? We always stay @ Omni (suite) but I am curious about Voque.

We liked Bonaparte's six course menu; our best meal in Montreal last month. We booked a table at the window which was fun.

For a more casual but great meal we enjoyed Modavie; it also had good music entertainment.

I wrote my restaurant opinions in my trip report, Thanks Canada......

Toqué! http://www.restaurant-toque.com/

I have eaten at Toqué! 3 times over the last 6 years. Always excellent. To really do it, go with the taster's menu with the wine pairings. No other restaurant in Montreal comes close imho.

Oh & a good # 2 would be Chez L'Épicier on rue St-Paul est in Old Montreal.

Another vote for Togue and the tasters menu with wine pairings - fabulous.
