Montreal with 1 year old

We lived in Montreal for 6 years and will be returning to visit with our 1 year old in June. We loved places like DNA and Au Cinquieme Peche, but I have no sense of how welcome small people are in fancy restaurants in Montreal since we didn't have kids when we lived there. Do places have high chairs? We live in Amsterdam now and even very fancy restaurants will often have a high chair and are very happy to include children.

I remember seeing posts back when I followed the board regularly about restaurants turning away people with young children. My daughter has been taken to restaurants since she was teeny-tiny, so she is very well-behaved and we are always prepared for one of us to go stand outside with her if she's being disruptive. We would probably aim for lunch rather than dinner, but we'd love to visit DNA again. Any thoughts on fine dining that welcomes small children in Montreal?
