My wife and I going to Montreal this weekend to celebrate our marriage(we eloped) with friends. We love great food, wine, and service in a casual but refined atmosphere. Not too trendy, not too fancy. Actually, leaning more towards casual. We're looking for a place for Saturday night where having 10 people won't make us, the resto, or other patrons uncomfortable. We'd like to keep it under $1,000 for the 10 of us. I tried Chronique, but they're fully booked. I'm considering Ariel or L'Epicier, but I really don't know anything about either. Does anyone have any comments on these or new suggestions? Very much appreciated.
