Tried calling numerous times to dine solo as soon as they opened on a Wednesday but my 5 calls in the afternoon were never answered. I decided to just show up and was lucky enough to get an end seat at the counter next to the open kitchen, and was the only customer in the restaurant for the first 40... More

If you like Foie Gras, you found the right place. The best one we had was with maple syrup (yes, sounds gross but was incredible). We tried the duck in a can based on the reviews but was a bit disappointed. The duck meat was kind of chewy but everything else made up for it. Would definitely go back. Service... More

Wonderful restaurant, very worth a visit. Pretty much everything was super indulgent but worth every calorie! The foie gras poutine was fabulous, the duck in a can, and Parmesan garlic gnocchi the other highlights. Very reasonable prices for the quality of food too. And wonderful service.

We had reservations for 10:30 on Sunday night. We had asked for an outdoor table. We showed up early and waited until 10:45 to be seated outside. We ordered a beer and an appetizer. Fifteen minutes later they told us they needed to change the beer tap so it would be a while. We finally got our beers and appetizer... More

I'm a restaurateur so I carry few illusions about restaurants...But I have to say that my dinner their was incomparable. My Hotel-the William Gray was able to obtain a 9:45 reservation on a Sunday night . It was packed and having dined there it's no wonder. Friendly professional service, excellent wine list and the food superb.. The house fois gras... More

This was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. We went for dinner and even though it was packed, the customer service and food were both amazing. Our server's name was Florent (Flo for short) and he clearly cared about making our dining experience great. He provided us with helpful suggestions and was always around right when we... More

Drove 11 hours for pig face! When we arrived, and ordered pig face, were told they did not have it. Second choice was pied, didn't have that either, then tried to order the charcuterie platter, they didn't have that either. Finally ordered "Hot Chicken". Was salty, but not hot. Were told by the waitress that it was Sunday and they... More

Meat eaters paradise: duck, porc, foie gras everywhere; A-Z fresh bread, amazing drinks, succulent main courses, themed desserts, this place will not disappoint. Lively atmosphere, guaranteed to have a great time. Reserve in advance for larger groups. Get the canned duck your first time!!

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
