“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

My wife and I ate here one evening. The owner of the bed and breakfast at which we were staying told us he has recommended his lodgers wanting excellent French cuisine to Laloux for 13 years and has not had any complaint. We understand why.

We started with butternut squash soup and a charcuterie platter, entrees were a guinea fowl and smoked meat, Quebec cidre to drink, and dessert: a passionfruit sorbet and ice cidre. Every dish pleased all the senses - exciting combinations of flavors, textures, colors, and shapes beautifully arranged on each plate. I want to emphasize that each ingredient was fresh and high quality with powerful flavor, and the combinations of those ingredients on each plate were really impressive.

Our server was so attentive and interactive with us that we felt genuinely endebted to him for making the experience even better than it would have been based solely on the excellent food.

It goes without saying that the room, decor, furniture, and table items were all clean, well kept, and arranged well.

To top off the evening, the bill was not painful! Considering the quality of the experience, I was surprised the cost was under $50 per person.

We both look forward to the opportunity to eat there again. I recommend making a reservation.

“Perfect From Start to Finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Lunch table d'hôte with wine pairing in this beautiful restaurant was outstanding. Beginning with the artichoke soup starter with sunflower seeds, drizzled with chili oil, to the main course a Mackerel filet and a Maple Cake to end a perfectly wine paired lunch was all together heaven. I was also able to taste the Cavatelli, Guinea fowl, Beef Flank Steak and Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sorbet that were ordered by my family, each of which were perfectly amazing. The service was friendly and impeccable. Without a doubt the best meal I had while staying in Montreal.

“Awesome find. Wonderful experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Our concierge had recommended Laloux as we had asked for a French dining experience. What a wonderful find. My husband started with a lobster salad that was new to the menu that night - the flavours in that dish alone were phenomenal. We went on to have the butternut squash soup, scallops and beef tenderloin, followed by a shared dish if profiteroles. Each did was elegantly presented with exquisite taste. The service was above and beyond our expectations. Our coats were taken at the door and were waiting in hand as we left. We asked the waiter to call us a cab as we were getting up. By the time we had our coats on the waiter was at the curb holding the cab door open for us. Start to finish, this was an exceptional experience.

“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We were all completely blown away by the dishes served here. The food is incredibly prepared. For appetizers we had the beef tartar, cod, and cucumbers. For main dishes there were scallops, arctic char, and cavatelli. This place put is in a food coma that is still bringing a smile to my face. Go here but reserve in advance!
