This is a difficult review to sum up, but here goes. the food and recipes are excellent, do not be put off by the 'see them cook it' kitchen- they may not look like chefs, but they do turn out some impressive dishes. We had fish dishes and they were cooked to perfection , and the gazpacho starter was one... More

They have a fixed menu for lunch that you cannot go wrong with - if you're into creamy soups (hot or cold) they have really tasty combinations that are quite filling. Each course has options to choose from, so there is no way you leave unsatisfied. The portions sizes are good even for a heavy eater. The terrace is very... More

Dining al fresco in Montreal on a warm summer evening has always put me in a wonderful mood. Le Local is situated in a gentrifying post-industrial area not far from downtown and Old Montreal, but not touristy. The indoor area is spacious and trendy looking, with a crowded bar on a Thursday evening. The outdoor area was partly surrounded by... More

We really enjoyed our evening at Le Local during our recent trip to Montreal from Toronto. Food - 4/5 To start we had the grilled octopus salad and the bitter lettuce salad. Very simple dishes elevated to a higher standard. I even made mention to my partner that these were both dishes my mother who comes from a small village... More

I have never before in my life been treated so poorly by a restaurant. The chef literally turned to a member of our business party as he walked by and screamed a swear in his face. What was even more sad was that the sophomoric chef was screaming profanities and a businessman in jacket and tie and one that complimented... More

I was there for a business dinner. The surroundings were not very promising. The local itself looked nice. As group, we got a menu that was quite limited. The served meal, however, was quite good quality and it tasted well. There was some problem with the dessert. First we got the wrong plates, then we didn't get anything before claiming... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge and it was a great recommendation. There is outside seating which is very nice and the restaurant inside has a warm, inviting feel to it. We had limited time because we were going to Cirque de Soleil. The waiter kept us on track without making us feel rushed. The food was excellent.... More

Went there with friends. In a bit of an off the beaten track location, but don't let that put you off. Friends had various starters, including pork belly, which were all good. Then we both had sirloin (chefs special) with caramelised onions and mushrooms. Strong flavours but boy, what a flavour. Our friends had a 28oz ribeye to share and... More

Le Local used to be an attractive choice for dining not far from the Old Port; however, last night's visit (a business dinner) revealed several unfortunate changes. It looked beautiful on the outside, leafy and with warm lighting. Inside, however, the previously cosy atmosphere was gone: artless house music was blared at a ridiculous volume, and the clientele was loud,... More
