Description: L'APPARTEMENT - Resto Lounge A restaurant and a lounge: two floors, two ambiances. Old-Montreal would be unrecognizable without L'Appartement, well known for its contemporary menu and its conviviality. In an urban decor, the chic and the laid-back intertwine to a trendy mix of soul and house music. As the evening progresses, the DJ shapes his sounds to the pulse of the clientele. Jonathan Brien, owner and passionate restaurateur with more than twenty years of experience, opens L'Appartement in 2006. A McGill street pioneer, he hopes that you will be his next "tenants" at L'Appartement for an unforgettable evening! Now open on week-ends for brunch!

We reserved for dinner on a Saterday night. The restaurant is small and intimate with a very nice decor. The service from the server was excellent, she was able to answer our questions about the food and made us laugh aswell.

The drinks arrived at our table, some were good some were not.

The appetizers arrived after a short wait, which were mostly good, everyone finished them with out a complaint.

The main course took a long time to be served to everyone in the restaurant. We assume that there must have been some problem in the kitchen since no one had food. They did bring a complimentary plate of steak tartar to keep everyone quite.

When the mains arrived they were mostly ordinary with the chicken being quite dry.

We had a good time since we were there with friends and the atmosphere with the music is very nice but we probably will not go again as we were not pleased with the food.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere, and some plates are delicious. The only thing that bothers me are the waitresses. On one occasion, we were a group of 6 people, and the our waitress complained to the overall table that I did not leave a big enough tip....Who does that?
One another occasion, we were a group of 12+ people, and the waitress overcharge me by 50% on my personal bill.

There is nothing special about the food at L'Appartement. Though when it comes to the chic decor and good looking staff, they have everything ready...

Personally, I do not like spending extra money to see attractive waitresses, especially if the food is average. If you are one like me, this is not the place for you.

The Restauant is up top, in the basement is the lounge/bar. A very busy place in the summer nights Thursday-Saturday. About average for prices considering the area of the vieux port.

Went early on a Saturday night with my wife, The food was really well executed without any pretention. I had the beef tartar with homemade chips for an appetizer with a braised lamb (souris) for main. Both were really good. Portion size is more than enough for the price. My wife had the wapiti stack and the half chicken. the chicken was cook as perfect as it can be, moist and tender, witha nice crisp skin. They have a few gems on their wine list, mostly private imports at decent price. The service was ok until the dinning room filled up and then we had a hard time finding our server for the bill. But being well fed and happy that we tried this restaurant. It was'nt a big deal. We will definatly go back. They only thing missing would be a nice tasting menu.
