Great tapa style light dishes that we shared as a group. You cannot go wrong with anything on the chalk menu..(there are no physical personal menus)..which is a bit odd when you sit under the board, but can be overcome with one or two Old Fashioned drinks, when you will then be telling everyone your recommendations. My personal favorite was the seasoned horse.

And I'm from seattle where we have some great produce. I had the country salad and every bite was different, savory and delicious. Lucas and Chris offered great service, wine offerings. I wish it were closer to my hotel as its a place i would have gone back to again and again. Fun music too. Thanks Liverpool House!

We went tonight June 25. We were promptly greeted and although 40 minutes early, seated at the bar for an aperitif. The aperitif was a house cocktail and very refreshing. We ended up being seated early and given a choice of indoor or outside table. The menu was diverse and unique. We highly recommend the Foie grad dejenuer... A delightful twist on a poplar breakfast sandwhich made
With egg, smokey cured bacon, cheese Foie gras on an English muffin with hollandaise and maple syrup. Bam! The lobster spaghetti was a strong second. Staff friendly and very helpful. This will be a Montreal staple for future travel for sure!

Went yesterday, Saturday night, June 21, 2017 @ 7 PM. restaurant packed and very noisy, Service good. Ordered bread & cournichon @$2.50, should have been free. Pickles were not cournichon but dill pickles. Bread was not heated and very ordinary. Butter was a tiny portion and tasted like it came from the local supermarket. We have had great home made butter in other canada restaurants.
First course asparagus with shrimp in a mayonnaise sauce. Asparagus are in season in Canada. We have had fabulous fat Asparagus for the last three weeks. The asparagus were thin overcooked. The tiny shrimp, which have been in every market, were frozen. There was so much mayonnaise sauce you had to scrap it off.
My wife had the cucumber soup with lobster. OK but not much lobster.
Main courses:
Wife had the trout. Totally overcooked SWIMMING in sauce. Thought it might swim off the plate.
I had the dorade(sea bream). Totally overcooked SWIMMING in a brown sauce that was too strong for the delicate fish, really poor.
The best however was the wine list.
We order a bottle of French rose that said it was from 2012. The bottle just said #12. That just means it MIGHT be from 2012 but could be any blend of vintages. Also it was just a generic bottle of French wine, from anywhere. This was not even from Provence. We had bought some beautiful young rose from Provence in the State of Canada store for $15 RETAIL. I assume this bottle in the restaurant was $10 to $12 retail. We paid $65 in the restaurant. The most OVERCHARGED I have EVER been for a bottle of wine.
All english speaking tourists in the place, no locals
Dinner was expensive

It has been two years since we first went to Liverpool House and it was every bit as outstanding this time, as it was last time. Their house speciality is the most luscious lobster, all broken up and easy to remove from the shell served atop a mound of pasta with an alfredo/lobster bisque type sauce. Exquisite. Still. And wines by the glass were top shell. My husband had grilled calves liver and it was cooked to perfection. The only drawback is it is very noisy so not a good place for a quiet romantic dinner. But if you want a restaurant for great food, make a reservation well in advance and enjoy every morsel. It will continue to be our first stop whenever we visit Montreal.
