Corkage fees

Do any of you make use of this service? Do many restaurants in Montreal offer this service?

What it is is basically a fee a restaurant will charge you for letting you bring your own wine, that they will then serve to you (decant if needed etc..).

I think it's a great idea, when you have some nice bottles of wine at home that you would like to enjoy with a good meal in restaurant - because of restaurant markups you usually end up saving a bundle - of course depending on the value of the wine and the corkage fee.
