If you’ve been paying attention, you know just how revolutionary and downright scary the launch of ChatGPT has been.

Since its November release, the artificial intelligence software, based around a highly intelligent conversational bot’s responses to user questions, has been writing extensive essays, code, poetry, and just about everything in between.

But what about something as personal as restaurant recommendations? We decided to put the bots to the test by asking them “can you recommend the best restaurants in Montreal, QC, Canada?”

Here’s what the AI platform taking the world by storm replied with. The following is a direct transcript from ChatGPT:

Montreal is known for its vibrant food scene, with a wide range of excellent restaurants to choose from. Here are a few highly regarded options to consider:
