Classic bistro with a very french ambiance, good classic bistro menu, however in my opinion too pricy but the quality is there and the standards are constant. Somehow my waiter was a bit snobbish

Great quails. Service good although they do tend favour regulars more so than the occasional customer or tourist. Icon in Montreal. Black and white palette still functions. Parking is very difficult and prices for a bistrot a bit pricey. Excellent wine list. Good for early dinner or late night to see and be seen.

must try octopus lentil salad. It alone will make you comeback time and time again. They give you pickles and dijon on the side to go with your bread and butter, so good. They have a dessert which is meringue covered in caramel like a candy apple. a must try also

We have been to Monteal so many times I have lost count and each time we eat here without fail. Lunch or dinner - its all good. Service is right on and the food is amazing. Can get a bit loud with a full house as all is hard surface but that's just part of the experience! I travel to Canada for pleasure but travel the USA for business often and this is still one of my all time favorites.

We've frequented here before, but am writing this review now to share my experience.

This is a small restaurant and, therefore, it's best to reserve beforehand. It can get frequently busy.
Started with the Rillettes l'express which is a smooth pate made in house. very tasty & excellent
Cutting to the chase, their specialty is, no doubt, their Steak Tartare ... also they make great Rognons de Veau with mustard sauce. I understand that these mentioned items are not necessarily for everyone (i.e. Tartare=raw beef; Rognons de Veau =Calf Kidneys) but for those who can appreciate them, "they do it well".

The price is reasonable and should not drain your wallet.
