Le Muscadin has traditional, almost dated-looking decor and provided live music on the night we dined. The roaming guitarist added a nice touch to the atmosphere but only sang to certain tables and the restaurant was only a 1/3 full. Well okay, fine, don't sing to us - we'll sing to each other. The food was good. Loved our vegetable... More

Needed an early dinner at a spot near our hotel, to accommodate a very early morning flight, and the great reviews on TripAdvisor convinced us that Le Muscadin would be ideal. We were greeted effusively by the host and whisked to a table in an otherwise-empty sector of the dining room, which was partitioned into several different areas that allowed... More

We have never been disappointed at Le Muscadin and they always exceed our expectations. We started with a cocktail....the Bloody Caesar and old fashion Manhattan are prepared to perfection. We then had "antipasto Misto Le Muscadin", you must try this appetizer. It is a assortment of cold cuts, cheese, grilled vegetables, grilled shrimp and fried calamari ( which are awesome).... More

Beautiful restaurant with an extensive Italian wine list. Service was excellent. Dover Sole was a highlight and well presented. Others did not enjoy their classic Italian dishes.

This is not the place I've been to in the past. This time around we were a group of couples. I new it was pricey as I've been a number of times. It was the first time for a couple of folks. They offer free parking at a lot next door but you need to go into the restaurant and... More

Honestly this was the best Italian restaurant I'd eaten at in Montreal so far. The portion sizes were perfect, pasta we had was delicious, and the waitrons were absolutely charming. We even received roses before we left. It was great.

We had a beautiful evening at Le Muscadin, the atmosphere was excellent, the Terrasse is lovely. My husband and I both had the same thing, the surf and turf (although it wasn't called that) the steak was perfection and the lobster delicious. For dessert I had a perfectly made creme brule and hubby had the tiramisu which he said was... More

It was my second time at the restaurant (the first time was a long time ago). The staff was fantastic and their terrace is amazing. Most of the dishes and hors d'oeuvres we've had were very good (althought we sometimes felt like something was missing like arancini without a sauce, prosciutto cut so thick that it was chewy), althought it...

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
