So where to start with this review! I have never been to a restaurant in this price range which promises one so much but to be left totally disappointed. We ordered the 'special menu' for the evening which consisted of scallops wrapped in bacon, the black pudding main, and the four 'element' dessert. The service started off strong. We were... More

We were referred to this place by a local and we were not disappointed! We were seated outside, on our request: it was a very pleasant summer evening. Too dark to read the menu, but we were assisted by friendly staff. Good advise on wine to pair with nice steak tartare. Lovely cranberry Bread and butter. Will recommend to go... More

I love how the chef uses local products and creates unique dishes. I love foie gras, and there are always 2 or 3 versions on the menu, so for me it's definitely one of my favorite spots. The wine list is incredible and includes private imports. I always ask to be seated in the back room, were you get more... More

We were very excited to try the food at Le Local. When we came, we were seated right next to the kitchen and waiters kept bumping into our table and didn't even acknowledge us or apologize. Our waiter took our order around 8:45 pm. Our appetizer (Foie gras terrine) was cold, tough, and the fois gras was surrounded by braised... More

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
