“here again for f1”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

we are here again for f1. this time for 2014. another installment. business and pleasure.

as a tradition we go to L'Academie. we went to the one on Saint-Denis. wonderful place. they do not take reservations unfortunately. however, since this year was more quiet, we had no problems. also since we were a smaller group of 3, it went quick. larger groups will have to wait, so call ahead.

sat down and immediately opened the wines. then ordered the mussels. ordered dijonaise, madagascar and provencial. skip the provencial. order two madagascar. holy crap. even better than last year. this time we have a newbie, my brother. he tried the madagascar and was in love. so we had to order more food. after the mussels, everything is inferior. had some rack of lamb. good. but back to the mussels. once we were done, we tried some dessert. what a meal.

would highly recommend. if you cannot go the one at Saint-Denis, i think they now have one close to Saint-Catherine.

have fun.

“Mediocre Food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

i have eaten at L'Academie before and it was fine but this meal, at the Crescent Street location, was quite poor. Service was good and the outdoor seating great but both my companion and I were surprised by the low quality of the food

“great lamb! amazing desserts”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

kid's menu is very good, particularly pasta. bring-your-own-wine type of restaurant, with a great wine store directly across the street from the restaurant.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Crowded but still intimate. Good food, ambiance, service. Bring your own wine allows restaurant to focus on the quality of the food and service, instead of maintaining an extensive wine cellar. A very enjoyable experience.

“A restaurant to keep on your list!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

After becoming members of the Montreal Museum of Art, my husband and I were pleased to learn that members get 10% off meals at L'Academie. Seeing that this restaurant was right around the corner, we decided to check it out. The service was very kind and warm, the food was tasty. I had the chef's special, which was pasta done three ways including a cannelloni and hand rolled gnochi in a herbed cream sauce. My husband had the steak. Both of us were very happy. A stand out was the lovely cream of pumpkin soup with started our meal, so warming and nice.
