Excellent food from entrées to desert, tasty . Interesting atmosphere.
We particularly enjoyed the very professional service , availability of the staff to ensure comfort and rapid response , all this offered with a discrete sense of hunour, continuous smile and team work. Never felt ignored or gorgotten about.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Chez Lévêque (no, there is not supposed to be an "s" in the last name) changes its menu with the seasons. We ordered different selections from the chef's menu, and all courses were good. I particularly enjoyed the combination of textures and flavours in their veal brains and sweetbreads dish. The rest of the menu was imaginative, yet still included lots of options for less adventurous palates. Other reviewers have complained that the serving sizes here are too small, but we did not find these to be below average, and after dessert we couldn't have managed another bite.

The decor is elegant without being formal. The one weak point is the service, which does not match the quality of the food or ambiance. The night we visited, the various servers ranged from brusque to just adequately professional, and they had trouble keeping orders straight and matching guests to their coats at the end of the evening.

While one could get away with spending less, our bill for two people came to over $240 before tip: that's including aperitifs, multi-course chef's menus, and wine pairings, but we still felt it was rather steep for the overall experience. While I would not rank Chez Lévêque among the best restaurants in Montreal, I would rate it above the much-acclaimed Leméac across the street, which is too high-volume for my tastes.

“It's fun”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

A good place to eat for a casual meal. Food is good, service is nice and prices are reasonable. Like it a lot for small meals as my experience for a complete dinner was not grat so am careful about ordering.

“Casual French Food”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is a great place for a casual upscale meal. I highly recommend coming after 9pm for their late-night menu (21 dollars for two courses and 6 dollar drinks). Even if you come outside of this time, it's still wonderfully priced for the quality of food you're getting. The deserts are wonderfully tasty, rich, but not overly so, and the steak is to die for!
