What a marvel! Outstanding dishes and over the top delicious. Yes, its's that good. The oysters with miso gratin packed so many flavours. My absolute favorite was the cavatelli with veal cheeks and foie gras. If you really appreciate unique ingredients and don't believe that good food has to be a gluttonous portion, then you've struck gold with this restaurant.... More

horrrible service!!! I'm a big Montreal foodie who is always on the hunt of new restaurants and was excited to try le filet for a long time. I was extremely disappointed. The staff were very rude and somehow insulting because we were a bit late which really ruined my mood for the rest of the day. Food was not great.... More

Excellent tapas bar, the dishes are so flavourful that you can never get enough, professional service and acceptable atmosphere, for me the best in it’s category, it’s a pity that restaurants like this do not get international fame and recognition, would be even greater if they think about having a tasting menu composed of 12-15 types of small dishes.

Le Filet is an incredible restaurant that makes me feel so at home the second I walk through the door. I've been with friends and family, or just alone with my boyfriend and each experience has been so cosy. The staff is attentive and knowledgable. The food is refined and tasty. I can only say positive things about this place... More

We were well received upon arrival, and the service was quite attentive throughout. The food was both tasty and attractive. The risotto was absolutely wonderful, as were the various starters. Calling the dishes tapas struck me as a misnomer. In fact, the volume was a little less than normal, but not to tapas levels. But then again, you can call... More

We were a group of six; we elected to have dishes and wine brought until we said "stop." We were not disappointed with the variety and quality, the service was engaging and attentive, and we felt like we'd made the right choice. There is an emphasis on seafood - if you're looking for big steaks and the like, you should... More

I've been to this restaurant three times now and have not been disapointed once. The restaurant serves tapas style, usually to share between two people (so slightly bigger than usual tapas meant for one). Two people can eat well with about 5-6 shared between them. This will give you a chance to try the menu that has more than enough... More

Arguably one of the best restaurants in Montréal for foodies, especially considering price (i.e. much less expensive than Toqué, Chasse & Pêche, 400 coups, etc). Ate there twice since November - consistent experience. Reservation a must. Menu: Tapas style menu (more in size than traditional style) with a strong prevalence of sea food. Presentation is original. Wine menu is stellar... More
