Death by Fois Gras

Nothing to dislike. Service is fantastic, menu like no other. The portions are generous, beyond flavorful, last meal before you die. The owner/chef Martin Picard is a genius, generous and down to earth gentleman. A must stop on any visit to Montreal, but make reservations well in advance.

This is one of my 5 tops restaurants. The food is excellent, tender and juicy if you like meat. Some of it comes with the taste of maple sirop but just a touch. Either the entree, main course or dessert, everything is tasty. The service is courtois, attentive to your needs, present but discrete. They also have a great selection... More

No one came to see us when we sat down, we had to ask for every single thing from water to utensils.... Took 2.5 hrs before we got our mains... And the food was "ok". Really fatty and too rich.

Booked a reservation months in advance for my honeymoon. Im not sure if I was more excited about the wedding or finally getting to eat at Au Pied De Cochon. Started with the Poutine Foie Gras which lived up to the hype, had a very tasty cheese pie. And finished with a Foie Gras, Pig feet, Duck and sausage Cassoulet.... More

My friend and I were very excited for the experience, with Martin Picard's immense reputation, this is bound to be a meal to remember!! We ordered the duck carpaccio and the tongue and tail terrine to start. We both had daily specials for mains, my friend had the steak with beats and I had a pork chop with maple maple... More

This is a once in a great while visit as the food is so rich, so awesome you can't stop!! DO NOT COME HERE IF YOU ARE ON A DIET!! Anne Marie is the new Chef du Cuisine. The dining room is loud, active and boisterous! FUN. Not a place for a quiet romantic date... The food is creative and... More

Quickly.... Food: outside the box and not for the ones who think salad is a meal! Rich, exquisite porc, foie gras and some fish,and in the middle as far price is concerned. Staff: outgoing, no frills, they know their menus. Location: On a summer day or night yes, in the deep of Montreal's winters and with lack of snow removal... More

My fiancé and I went here for a later dinner. I don't have much interest in foie gras and I don't eat pork (the two specialties here) but I rated the restaurant not on my personal taste but on the overall quality, experience, and atmosphere. My fiancé had foie gras in Quebec city earlier and was craving to have well... More

quality and imagination of food is truly fantastic. Staff is absolutely professional. I visit 2 to 4 times per year, and am always impressed by the experience. Book well in advance. and try the Cabane a Sucre; even more outrageous.

You must love pork. If not don't bother. This place is overrated for the price. Ordered pork chops whose sauce was tasteless. Expected more from this place. Fries cooked in duck fat are enough to put you in the coronary care unit.
