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.
