I came to Le Serpent on the recommendation of Simon, chef concierge at the Ritz Carlton here in Montreal. That man knows what's he's talking about! At Le Serpent, the maitre d'hôtel - Denis - made me feel so warm and welcomed. The food here is influenced by Italy but has a local French Canadian richness - think : flavour explosion - that I adore. Come here if you want a can't miss dining experience in an urban, modern room with service from the friendliest staff, and food that will make you swoon.
