A dazzling Victorian heritage building with gleaming wood panelling and marble-topped bar? Walls made entirely of glass with copper accents and an achingly sleek fireplace? Or a 360-degree view that will take your breath away?
And with so many places to choose from—from a new Montreal hotspot that is the only Canadian restaurant to make the World's 50 Best list to downtown’s sexiest rooftop—which one is the most romantic restaurant?
Analyzing over 1.1 million diner reviews, OpenTable has announced the top 100 romantic restaurants in Canada and 7 spots in Quebec made the cut.

4. Jérôme Ferrer Europea

Arôme at the Casino du Lac Leamy in Gatineau also topped the list.
With its impossibly elegant atmosphere (designed in 1880 by William Tutin Thomas, it was originally the home of Sir George Stephen), it’s no wonder Antoni Porowski ranked Bar George one of the most romantic spots in the city.
Nestled in the heart of the Golden Square Mile, just steps from one of the city’s best secret spas and one of the year’s buzziest hotel restaurant openings, Bar George isn’t just one of the most romantic restaurants in the city—it’s also home to one of Montreal's most stunning bars.
Time Out Tip: Snag one of the sexy hidden nooks behind the bar (think: blue velvet loveseats and flickering candles).
If you don’t fall for the 300-year-old stained glass windows, the 15-foot Ceylon satinwood panelled walls or the 22-carat gold fixtures, Bar George's British-themed menu will have you on your knees.
In a playful and thoughtful homage to Sir George Stephen's British and Canadian connections, Chefs Anthony Walsh and Kevin Ramasawmy skillfully blend traditional U.K. culinary elements with contemporary Québécois flavours and high-quality, locally sourced ingredients.
