Le Grand Comptoir serves quality French bistro food at good price. Very centraly located and with good service. Also has a nice terrace in the Summer. Highly recommended for a good casual lunch / dining experience.

Fantastic French food in the center of Montreal...Just a small storefront type of restaurant with sidewalk café appeal, Le Grand Comptoire offers some of the best French food at reasonable prices. Sirloin steak with Roquefort butter, genuine pomme fritte--thin, crunchy, delicious, pork rounds with dijionnaise sauce. All introduced with a soup of the day--chilled creamed celery. It was phenomenal. This... More

We sat on the sidewalk. The manager (?) was very attentive and gave the most attention of any service we had on our 5 day trip in Quebec. The side choices and accompaniments were limited which was a little frustrating. The food taste, quality, and presentation were all great. The smoke from neighboring patios where others were eating was annoying.... More

The service was very slow. My husband and I both had steaks which were tough and fatty. The flavor in the sauce was good. The salads were ok but the lettuce could have been fresher. Our teenage kids had poutine with duck confit. The duck was good. Neither of them liked the poutine but I thought it was good so... More

We made a reservation here because of fine reviews from patrons of our nearby hotel. It really was a good choice. Both the pork dish and the steak were excellent. The wine was good, too. It didn't feel touristy. It seemed genuine. The waiter who might have been an owner talked to us a bit in a friendly way. We... More

This was a perfectly acceptable small restaurant that served food of a good quality. The menu wasn't extensive but what there was provided just about enough of a choice to satisfy most people id have thought. Service was professional and there was a fair turnover of people which usually suggests a reasonable place to eat.

This Bistro is in a long narrow setting, crowded & rather noisy at lunch hour, but settles down to quiet shortly thereafter. Special of the day is always good & ample. They have a good quality wine, reasonably priced that is changed periodically. Service is excellent, even during the busiest period. We had the special - an outstanding vegetable soup,... More

Unassuming from the street, I'm surprised by how comprehensive the menu is. The salmon I had was very nicely done. And every dish comes with soup and salad. Much better than the lunches I am accustomed to. Bravo and encore!

During the Scotties Tournament of Hearts Women's Curling Championships, held in February of this year, my wife and I went down to Montreal to watch some of the games live, and to enjoy Montreal as much as the frigid weather in early February would permit. As always, we try to discover new places to savour the city's foods. On this... More
