On our first visit, I was blown away by the duck in the can. The second visit was pretty good too but wasn't as impressive. The quality of the food is excellent and consistent; foie gras is also excellent. The quantity of food is generous and tasty. The duck in a can is tasty and fun to eat, the pig's... More

The food was decent and expensive. Overall, we were satisfied with the quality of the food and the foie gras did make a difference to the servings. However, there is way too much publicity about the place and the staff think too much of themselves because of that. The truth is that it a place that serves tasty food, like... More

This warm, hip and gracious establishment should be on top of everyone's list visiting Montreal if they are seeking perfectly prepared meats (especially foie gras and pork) and unusual side dishes. The wine list was extensive without being overwhelming...the sound track playing overhead purposely planned ( I believe) to induce gluttony. The bread alone was enough to send me back... More

After reading the many reviews, we made a reservation one month in advance. We were seated promptly; our server, Stephen, was fluent in English and described many specials of the evening. It's definitely not a US menu; one of the specials for the evening was tartare made from horsemeat. We passed on that one. I had looked forward to the... More

The foie gras burger is a star all over the web and I didn't know if it'd live up to the hype. Yet, I felt I had to try it. It was beyond amazing. Now, I have to go back and see if another one could possibly be as good as my first time. It was not as heavy as... More

Wow, the place is small and packed! Must make reservations ahead of time! Interesting RUSTIC menu. Very organic, gamey ingredients. Different but Good. I don't want to comment on the dishes specifically as it is subjective. But the overall experience was a high energetic place, staff was friendly and great place for something different.

One of the best meals we have ever experienced. And, that is exactly what it was, and experience. We sat at the bar for 3 hours and watched the ballet of meals being prepared unfold before us. The tiny kitchen is just a countertop width in front of us. Anything with Foie Gras is a must.

OK here's the thing. Big reputation, busy, happening vibe, bistro style restaurant in Montreal. There is a wood fired oven and lots of colour and movement. Service is slow. We ordered three appetisers: onion soup was good, deep fried foie gras good and tuna belly good. The mains were 90 minutes in coming. The suckling pig chop, a special, was... More

We just had to do it!! My son and I ordered the pig's head for dinner at Au Pied de Cochon. I had read about this possibility ahead of time and fortunately there was still one available for our dinner. It was quite an ordeal. I got to watch them prepare the head and when it was brought over to... More
