If you can put up with the poor service, the food almost makes it worth going to Chez Delmo. But given the prices, the bad service makes it worth avoiding.
The food was good: shrimp cocktail and halibut provencale. The shrimp was fresh, large, and tasty. The presentation was nice. The halibut was excellent. It was pan seared in garlic, capers and very little oil. It was extremely fresh and tasty. For some reason, the dish was offered with "fries, rice or mash" (no kidding, that's what he said). I asked for vegetables instead and got a nice mix of fresh vegetables with some great mushrooms. Why don't they normally offer the vegetables????????
The wine (a sauvignon blanc advertised as the house special at $50/bottle) was below standard and overpriced by about $35 (even taking into account restaurant margins on wine).
Dinner with appetizer (shrimp), main course (halibut), side of vegetables and wine came to $130.
The service was cold and disdainful.
I had made reservations for 1 (I am traveling on business) through Open Table. When I arrived, I was pretty much ignored and then treated as if I had just gotten off a tour bus and was followed by a horde of chattering tourists. I looked around, but no one was there. The restaurant was almost empty (it was early - 1900), but it still took a long time for someone to finally take my order.
The food came swiftly enough and was good, but I won't go back for the treatment. Luckily, this isn't the only decent seafood restaurant in Montreal.
