Where to Dine on New Year's Eve in Montreal

Say good-bye to 2021 with great grub and sparkling drinks

View as Map

It is somewhat unbelievable, but true, it’s already time to say goodbye to 2021 and welcome in 2022. The new year can be rung in at some great Montreal restaurants this year — something that was off the table last time the occasion came around, due to pandemic-related regulations.

Whether looking for something a little bit more formal, or more casual and relaxed, this map has got it covered. Be sure to reserve soon though — tables are filling up fast.

Note: This map is dedicated to New Year’s Eve dinners, but with multiple seatings and different closing times, diners may not be able to stick around until midnight. It’s best to inquire in advance.

For updated information and regulations applying to restaurants and bars, please visit the official sites of the Quebec government and Montreal’s public health authority (Santé Montréal).
