Nice food

The place is very beautiful and well decorated. The drinks were great, specially the Blood Mary with grapefruit juice. The salmon tartar with truffles was divine!!!

My girlfriend and I tried this restaurant. We went on a Wednesday night which was just perfect and not too busy. We started with two cocktails (bourbon bloody Cesar + gin and grapefruit) which were very good. For starters we had the carpaccio which was phenomenal and salmon tartare that was very ordinary. The main dishes consisted of a scallop... More

Ate here with a groups of friends and enjoyed their appetizer menu. Food was really well done, good variety (we like the lamb meat balls, lobster cakes and caramel/chocolate cookies). The service staff was really great. I did think the price was a little on the high side but would still go back. I also liked the deco, modern with... More

Le Local is a trendy bistro located in the heart of Old Montreal in what must have been an industrial building that has been modernized to create a funky urban atmosphere. My wife and I had dinner here based on a recommendation of a business associate from Montreal. The food is of reasonable quality with interesting ingredients and pairings. I... More

We were greeted, seated and well-treated. The food was fresh, creative, and beautifully presented. Appetizers were creative and beautifully presented. The rabbit was exquisite, served with baby asparagus and citrus greens. The steak was perfectly cooked to our request. The ambiance, music and service will definitely bring me back. The menu on trip advisor has not been updated.

Warm and trendy atmosphere - food outstanding (duck ravioli highly recommended) - service is up to par for this type of restaurant. Great choice of wine. Reservation suggested - can be noisy at peek time. $$$

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
