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

We would never have found this restaurant on our own but it was recommended so we went along. We sat at the outside area which was very pleasant. The staff were very friendly and explained the menu. I had the special of pork belly to start which was sooo tastey and melted in the mouth. For main I had the... 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

Location is a post industrial, gentrifying area. Decor is eclectic and interesting. High chair seating was less than comfortable. Food was inventive and interesting. Service was mixed in efficiency and the meal took more than hour to arrive! There is also an undue pressure to order the higher ticket wines.

Been before and good but this time disappointing. Bitter mash, liver overdone and cut like baseball steak, covered in too rich sauce. Service a bit of an arrogant feel. Too bad.

Dined May 17 for a party of 4 people at 10:30 PM. Made reservations 3 weeks in advance at Le Local for a party of 4 to celebrate my partners birthday. Made a request to be seated in a particular place, and received a message from Le Local that we would be receiving this seating arrangement upon our arrival. Reconfirmed... More
