We returned to Le Grain de Sel because our last experience in July 2012 was so good. Our friends missed the last visit so we were happy they could make this one. Having heard so much about it, they were excited to be there. We called to make a reservation for 8:00 pm but the evening was full. The staff... More

My wife and I truly enjoyed our experience in this restaurant. She had a lamb dish and I had the Fish and Chips. I tried her lamb dish and all the favors blended together beautifully. My fish and chips were some of the best I have tasted, and I am a Brit. Further to this,the service was warm and efficient.... More

Le Grain de Sel is a small, boutique gourmet restaurant located in a quiet neighborhood, perfect for an intimate romantic dinner or a small group. The venue is a simple one-room dining room, decorated with large pop art prints and a few smaller modern oils. The dining area is separated from the kitchen by a wall of glass block, silhouetted...

This is a local restaurant that uses products from local producers. Menu is constantly changing but is always fresh and tasty! We were a group of 8 and everyone was very pleased with the services and the food! They have great sauces and yummy boudin! The most exciting part is when it gets to the dessert, not only because they... More

Flew into Montreal from Wash DC and we had just about 24 hours in town. Birthday gift from my husband to visit Montreal to have dinner. Never been to Montreal and we had very little time, so restaurant choice was very important. Chose this restaurant from the reviews on trip advisor. Either Montreal has hundreds of superb chefs or I... More

This must be the best meal I have ever eaten. It is difficult to put the feeling into words... I read the tripadvisor posts....and chose the restaurant on that basis. No description here could do justice to the experience we had. "Experience" is a deliberate choice...it was not just a meal. This is a relatively small restaurant where you get... More

We tried during the taste montreal event. Long time we wanted to go and were not dissapointed. Service is really, really nice. Cook came to ask if we liked his plates and this is always great to see. With one bottle of wine, it cost us 120$, add probably another 40-50$ if it's not during the taste MTL event. It's... More

We tried this restaurant as part of the Taste Montreal event. The amuse-gueule was a squash risotto that was tasty but a bit dry to my taste. Then my wife ordered the creamy leek soup, cheese and crunchy granola. It was DELICIOUS. The best soup I have had in a while (well, my wife had it). I had ordered the... More

My girlfriend and I (who don't speak a word of French) stopped in here after reading some positive reviews and were very happy to find that they weren't at all misleading. Our server was very friendly and while her English was far from perfect she was more than happy to switch to it. The food was delicious and well presented,... More

The beet salad, the foie gras, the fish and chips and the surf and turf were amazing!! Great dining experience: great food, great place, great service, pretty good price! The deserts were not fantastic, and its the only negativ aspect, but the rest was excellent!!
