This was literally the best thing I've every had at a restaurant it was such an amazing dinner! My boyfriend... read more

Very nice cosy French restaurant. A lot of choice (fish/ meat/ vegetarian options). High quality of ingredients. Extensive wine list. Perfect for families, for long lunches or a quick bite. Friendly staff and good and efficient service. Have been a few times already and was never disappointed.

When I find a place on my travels that is extraordinary, I am often a bit hesitant to return in case it turns out to be a disappointment. We were in Montreal recently to visit a friend. The last time we were here was 4 1/2 years ago. It was every bit as good as our previous visit. Our friend... More

Typical parisian style bistrot. Food has always been good at this Montreal institution. With old school atmosphere it vibes with conversation and clatter of efficient and polite service. Some say pricey but I say it's worth it. I love this place.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel, L'Auberge Napoleon, as both being excellent for it's food, and being open late, as we checked in rather late. The maitre d' got us seated right away. Our server made us feel welcome, despite being an island of Anglophones in a beautiful sea of Francophones around us. The mousse de foies de volaille... More

What can I say about L'Express that has not already been said? It is a "must" for any visitor to Montreal. The food is absolutely fantastic, the wine list is impeccable and I just love the atmosphere. No matter what you order (I usually go for the rabbit), you will not be disappointed. All their French delicacies are done to... More

Went to L'Express on the recommendation of the Ritz Carlton Hotel. It is a french bistro and actually feels like you're sitting in Paris eating. The don't have highchairs, but didn't seem to mind at all that we brought along our own booster chair. In fact, the servers went out of their way to try to entertain our young kids... More

We booked for Sunday lunch & it was just as well we did as the restaurant was full. Excellent service. We really enjoyed our lunch. I chose seabass as my main course which was tasty although there was too much oil on it for my liking. The crumble dessert was delicious. Good wine list & we found the menu very... More

Great french food in Montreal. We love the french bistro feel here and the food is good as well. Pickles and mustard on the table before dinner are a hit with the kids, too.

My wife and I had a late lunch here based on a recommendation of a business associate from Montreal. We had just walked spent the morning walking through Mont Royal on a cold but beautiful Montreal Saturday morning so we started off with some cappuccino and coffee to warm up. Next up were some great beat salads, lots of wonderful... More
