I had hoped for a reservation at neighbouring Joe Beef -- no joy, as the Brits would say, so we settled for Liverpool House as a recommendation on Open Table as an alternative.

Service was frankly excellent. Our server was remarkably broad in her explanations of the items on the menu, was perfectly bilingual (which in a place called Liverpool House making French food may be a requirement), and made no attempt to hustle us on despite my knowing that there was a second sitting on it's way.

Food was very very good. Interesting menu, broad, not inexpensive, but reasonable. The server suggested that we split, which a great idea, so we ordered six appetizers, and five entrees for six people (and one pipsqueak), which was fine. The only commentary that I have about this -- if you're expecting some kind of beautiful plating, presentation and foodie kind of experience -- don't. It's not going to happen. This is like a really talented maker of food to delight your palate, but not as concerned about your visual senses. The menu changes often, I suspect, (it's on a chalkboard), and it was far better than most of the restaurants I've been to in Montreal recently. Imaginative, well executed, drawn from what appears to be local in season products.

The ambiance is like what you'd expect -- it's a pub (as in Public House) serving food that is far better than the requisite steak and kidney pie. It comes with the noise, the cronky bathrooms, and the dress is remarkably casual.

Go -- you won't be disappointed.

Worth definitely a visit! The service was great, food was excellent, drinks were amazing, oysters were fresh and simply good! The price is really not that bad if you control yourself on drinks ;)
Enjoy!

While in Montreal for work- a client introduced me to this place. Casual, 'local' vibe, with amazing food. Great service and a good value. A little noisy but not too bad. (loved the 80s music playing in the background) Absolutely going back next time I am in town!

Being of south asian descent, we were bit skeptical about our choice for our only night in Montreal. Looking at the ambiance, the chalkboards and with our non-familiarity of French, we were certain that we made a wrong choice...but oh boy..we were in for quite a surprise.

That the food was awesome, is an understatement. Everything that we ordered from ratatouille, raita, cornish hen, mackerel, halibut steak was excellent and cooked to perfection. My wife and daughter were allergic to seafood and wouldn't eat red meat, but the chef was very accomodating to make special dish for them. The wait staff was very funny and guided us to make menu selections that would work for us. The portions are quite generous as well. Overall a fantastic experience.

Good food & nice, helpful waitress. Menu only being available on a dark calk board, cramped between tables is a ridiculous conceit, unless (or even if) it changes daily. And what's the massive barrel doing in the middle of the floor? Portions are huge, so if you want to try more than one course as expected in a normal high quality restaurant, food will be wasted. That is also strictly unnecessary and should not be encourages in a modern gourmet establishment.
