No matter the season, Verses Bistro showcases what local merchants have to offer. Hence, freshness is the essential ingredient in each plate.
As for the wine selection, the sommelier introduces us to a rich variety of notes and flavors, with a diverse and carefully selected wine list.
Recognized as one of Montreal’s best restaurants over the last 15 years, Verses Bistro is a nod to poetry, not only in its name, but mainly because it offers creativity, inspiration and precision to all its guests.
