We come to Montreal to eat at this restaurant and it never disappoints. We had an amazing "Beef Wellington" for two which was a special. Best to get any special they have on offer as it will be SPECIAL. Memorable meals have included duck in a can, poutine with foie gras, foie gras "Champlain", pecan pie. Come hungry! Sit at... More

Nice place. I enjoy to go there and to look at the cooks in fornt of me working. The dishes are excellent. The wine list is good too. As a standard based on my experience in restaurants in Montreal, it is a little noisy. But once one to time it is ok.

It's an explosion to my palate,.. exquisitely delish in my opinion. If you like a quiet fine dining experience, this is not for you though. We have waited for like 20 mins for our main course...It's a busy place... dont forget to call for a reservation. Otherwise, I have enjoyed my dining experience.

Nice and cozy restaurant In Montreal. Warm atmosphere. The food is good but not so up to what we expected knowing the popularity of the restaurant. Some entrees where really interesting but the main courses where mostly ordinary with sometimes some extra fatty textures. The foie gras was totally disappointing,not so well cooked. All together was a normal experience at... More

If you've never been to APDC, you should definitely check it out. Very unique, delicious cuisine with a fun rowdy atmosphere. Sit at the bar and watch the chef's in action. Try the daily specials. Reservations are a must.

Mixed feelings about this place. We made reservations for 8:00pm, probably about a month in advance because we were coming in from out of town. They called me that morning to confirm my resos, which I did. We got there just before 8:00pm and they informed me that they were running behind their reservation schedule due to earlier reservations "not... More

Busy and bustling! Very interesting menu. We were seated close to the kitchen entrance and could see all the plates as they were coming out, everything looked fantastic. We decided to share the Pig's Head For Two which required some convincing on my husband's part. Great presentation, more than enough food for two people, most of it I thoroughly enjoyed.... More

I love this place. I always make sure to stop by whenever I am in town. Reservation is highly recommended. This place has one of the best Poudding Chômeur I ever tasted. Make sure you try the Poutine au foie gras AKA heart attack on a plate! The owner also has a sugar shack, it is worth a visit.

Went here on a recent trip to Montréal for the fois gras poutine. A lot of good items on the menu but when we asked to waiter to recommend/talk us through it he seemed a bit uninterested/in a hurry to get away. Towards the end of the evening the service was borderline rude especially by Canadian standards considering how lovely... More

If you're looking for 'cuisine de quebec', look no further than Au Pied de Cochon. Everything about this place gives you a sense of the vibrant food culture of Montreal and Quebec. The place is more casual than I expected, but that only enhanced the experience. Service was top-notch. We went for some of what they are known for -... More
