Nothing to complain about at all, but did not rate as the #1 in Montreal. Worth rave reviews were the gravadlax (sounds ordinary but it really wasn't - succulent salmon chinks!) and the black cod, also pretty good the octopus and the pork ribs - never had a mushroom puree before which was original but I'm not sure worked completely. The venison was described as over seasoned. Ambience not bad, service , friendly but unspectacular. Worth a visit but not a life-changer!

I've been wanting to eat at this restaurant for a while now. I finally had the the time to go last week. The food is outstanding the service impeccable. Probably one of my better dining experiences in Montreal. Can't wait to try the black cod on my next visit.

The food was exceptional. It was a very enjoyable evening even though the restaurant was a little loud. We will certainly return!

The food at Sel Gras is always fresh and extremely flavourful. The staff does an excellent job at making each and every dining guest feel welcome. Ask for the bloody Cesar and you will be delighted with the twist the restaurant puts on it - down to the hot pepper and pickled detail. The owners at Sel Gras know how to create the perfect atmosphere for any dining experience- be it as a couple, a large group or a more casual meal at the bar. Simply awesome, if you are in Montreal you absolutely must stop by!
