2nd review. We returned to this restaurant for lunch but after the lunch hour rush which is noisy & fills this popular center town lunch spot. My wife ordered the daily special (which actually changes each day). The home made vegi soup was excellent as was the pasta & sauce. I ordered from the main menu & was tempted between... More

If you like a good French bistro food, this is it. Steaks are great, all meals are good, service is "courtois" . Atmosphere is pleasant whether it is inside or on the terrace in Summer. Prices are average.

When friends from New Jersey suggested we get together for a visit away, our immediate, suggestion was to meet in Montreal. At that moment, the same idea came to my wife and I…This will be perfect opportunity to return to Le Grand Comptoir, and show our friends what a wonderful Restaurant it is. Our friends arrived mid-afternoon, and we enjoyed... More

The first evening we were in Montreal, having come in on a 6am train from TO, we didn't want to stray too far from our hotel and found this lovely place, through the map search on the Trip Advisor App. What a lovely surprise! To start our meals came with a wonderful soup (Sweet Potato) and warm bread. I had... More

Had a very nice pork tenderloin which was tender. They supplied soup free of charge and red wine at $5 a glass. The Ambre beer was good. Good value for money.

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
