Sit at the bar, eat a full meal, experience the older gentleman bartender who is clearly the face of the place, and... transport. -A Parisian bistro experience with perfect presentation. -A sexy atmosphere with a sprinkle of businessperson and old school thrown in -Red warmth, mirrors and glass. -More women over 60 with more style than most women under 30...

It was a rainy day during the summer, I was in Montréal for a conference and a bunch of colleagues brought me to this nice small bistró 'très à la Française'. I opened with la soupe paysanne –wich was simple as paysan cuisine should be: very hot and with the vegetables cooked just to the right point. I tried to... More

I love this French restaurant!!!! It's so busy, but we got 2 chairs on the bar. Our Bartender, Masson, was fantastic. If you love food, you must eat here.

Quite exceptional. The restaurant is set out in Parisian bistro style, fabulous long bar where you can have meal, otherwise lots of nice table locations. Staff provide a very warm welcome. The food is great - try the specials which will need to be translated unless uou are a francophone since, unlike the standard menu, no translation is provided. Anyway,... More

Flavorful food at a decent price. The calf liver is out of this world, perfectly cooked and lightly sauced. We were able to walk in for a late lunch at 3 pm without a reservation.

On our recent trip to Montreal, we were craving Parisian bistro cuisine, and we are very particular. Alas, a friend of ours from the city suggested that we try out L'Express. And, wow, what a treat. The ambiance and decor is very much like what you would find in Paris, but with its own Montreal spin. And the food, well,... More

I love this place. This atmosphere feels very French with black and white tiled floor, mirrors, dark wooden beams and a big indoor palm. The staff are quite possibly the most attentive I have ever experienced and while the Host was a bit rude about my lack of French (we're from Vancouver), the server, food runner and everyone else were...

Quaint little bistro with traditional decor and tiled floor. Serves good steaks and wine at good value. Particular highlight was the duck and pistachio pate.
