  • "We ate here when there was a special event menu so weren't able to sample all the offerings we had read about but the food was excellent. The unexpected surprise was a dance party at midnight when the restaurant exploded into a festive dance scene. Very friendly staff and patrons. We felt very welcome, Can't wait to go back."

  • "We went for a 2pm Brunch on Christmas day; the food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. We were treated as though we were guests in their living room, the waitress was very friendly and constantly attending to us. The menu was in french, with no english translation, but the waitress translated everything for us as best she could. Very authentic!"

  • "Good french food served at Chez Leveque. Sunday night was a busy night probably due to the holidays approaching. Poeple were a bit louder than ususal at the tables probably due to the holiday season approaching. The washrooms still have the gregorian music which has been a long feature of this restaurant."

  • "I was very excited to try Chez Leveque based on the amazing food reviews it receives! I tried the late night menu! What an amazing deal! 2 courses for 21$ cannot be beat when the quality of the food is as high as at Chez Leveque. My friend had the filet mignon topped with Foie Gras. My beef tartare was fantastic! They came to the table to let me sample it to make sure the seasoning was to my taste (and it was bang on). The service, however, was very dissapointing! Rude waitress, incorrect cooking on the filet mignon, dessert given to me not as requested... All in all, amazing tasting food and service that needs polishing."

  • "Food was good but nothing extraordinary for the price you pay. They didnt have 2 of the appetizers that we wanted or the wine we asked for. We had three changes of servers. Overall the experience was ok but Montreal has way better restaurants."

  • "We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We were 5 people. Everyone choose something different so we could try everything!! The onion soup had a wonderful flavour, mixed with a bit of maple sugar. The tuna tartar was almost meaty!! That's good. The filet mignon was done to perfection. The lamb shank was savory. The rabbit was well cooked. The fish had a wonderful sauce and the rissotto was creamy. I did not taste the scallops because there were not many. All the dishes were well presented. The only criticism would be that we would have appreciated a few more veggies. The desserts were wonderful!!! The wine and table service was very nice. We went early...5pm on a Sunday night and felt they were just waiting to serve us."

  • "The food was good. I only gave it 3-stars because I felt the lobster bisque was a little intense with flavour & the duck breast & the veggies were a little bland. But then again, it is the typical French way. I just prefer my meats more salty and/or with a sauce or reduction. I had the maple macaron for dessert. The macaron itself was great, but I didn't find the raspberry coulis & apple sauce/butter accompanied the intensely sweet maple flavour well. Something more subtle like vanilla, champagne or a lightly spiced (nutmeg) coulis would have gone better. My friend enjoyed his steak & brownie! The service & the rest was great!"

  • "It is the second time I dine at Chez Leveque and both times I was not disappointed. While the ambiance is a little "older Outremont", and prices a little high, the food and service will greatly make up for it. I absolutely love tartare and their beef tartare is one of the best I've ever had. It comes with a copious amount of delicious fries and salad and the meat is seasoned perfectly. Their salmon tartar is also very good. Also worth mentioning, their brownie for desert. One word: yum. I definitely would return to try more dishes but if I have a tartare craving this is undoubtedly where I will go. Service was very friendly and helpful."

  • "Le service...un peu trop, presque une caricature. Un peu décevant dans l'assiette. C'était très bon, mais rien d'extraordinaire."

  • "Restaurant français. Amical de l'arrivée au départ. Les serveurs vous accompagnent dans votre sélection de repas. Ils connaissent très bien les plats. Ils aident aussi dans la sélection des vins. Très belle expérience culinaire. Très belle soirée. Je suggère fortement ce restaurant."

  • "This was our first experience at Chez Leveque but not our last. The waiters go out of their way to provide excellent service and the food was superb. We even had a visit from the chef. A nice touch. I would have no hesitation to recommend this lovely little gem. We went as part of the taste of Montreal that is currently ongoing."

  • "Very friendly server. Food was outstanding. We both ordered salmon (filet & tartare) and found it was prepared to perfection. They even brought me a spoonful of tartare beforehand to make sure it wasn't too spicy for me (it wasn't). We were in a rush to catch a flight and were very happy with the quick and efficient service. I would definitely recommend and will visit again."

  • "We reserved a table for their Sunday Brunch. The service was quite slow and not efficient at all; things needed to be asked for twice or even 3 times. We were a group of 6 people; 3 of which ordered from the Table d'Hote. We were all extremely disappointed with our meals. For 35 dollars all you received was a sip of orange juice, a rolled up slice of meat and 3 baby shrimps, and ONE slice of french toast. That only describes one meal, but the others were just as pitiful. Our bill added up to an amount of over 200 dollars and all of us were still starving. Unfortunately, not only were the portions little, but the food wasn't great either. If you must go to this restaurant, I highly suggest you skip their brunch!"

  • "An excellent French cuisine resto;- good ambience- top service-not "snobbish"- casual, yet still refined- when weather permits, an excellent terrace- varied menu with table d'hote- in summary, highly recommended"
    Dined on 9/28/2013
  • "If you know to do this, on a summer evening book a table on the terrace. It may be on Laurier Street, but the space is self-contained and lovely., Servers are efficient and gracious, offering real advice on the food and wine, which is greatly appreciated, even as they serve may tables. The board tells you the specials on the table d'hote; we opted instead for some good old fashioned, genuine French food like my husband's cervellede veau and my salmon tartare, and we started with the exceptional entree platter, which was a real treat. My husband also had another favorite for dessert, the Paris-Brest, made the way we remember them in France. Highly recommnded."

  • "The food at Chez Leveque is not trendy. It is very good, close-to-authentic French bistro cooking, presented in a close-to authentic bistro atmosphere. If that's what you want, this is a good place to get it. As signs in the restaurant point out, Chez Leveque has been doing it for 40 years:"
    Dined on 7/21/2013
  • "Chez Leveque is one of my favorite places to dine because the food is exceptional and affordable. Their $21 menu after 21h00 is a gem and worth every pretty penny. A great night out with the girlfriends with amazing food on a decent budget makes for happy women. Cocktails after 21h00 are only $6.66. My favorite appetizer ever is the Poultry liver mousse served with Sherry and pepper onion jam and moist brioche bread. So smooth and creamy with a light but delicious flavor. YUUUMMMMMMMM. My mouth waters just thinking of it...."

  • "Excellent food, excellent location, decor soigné. Service is excellent, they want to make the best for you...maybe too much, as the client should have some air to breathe, too many intervention from the waitress can become annoying, unless you like a friendly ambiance, which is not our case. I understand we are not used to very cold weather in Montreal but to my sense it is a faux pas to serve the oysters on salt instead of ice (they were cold at but outdoor that evening was super hot) and Laurent Perrier champagne should be stored in a colder place, finally carte des desserts should be revisited. Still a blue chip for french bistrot cuisine in Montreal, you'll keep coming back for the taste and excellent food made out of fresh produce."

  • "I had so much expectation about this restaurant. We celebrated Father's Day with a brunch and sad to say but the food, service and ambiance was not memorable. Nothing particularly wrong but if you are paying $30+ for eggs and potatoes I think you expect the place to stay in your memories for a while. Very ordinary. Skip breakfast here........"

  • "Leveque restaurant is always offering very good food, no matter what you get. It remains a classic on Laurier street and a safe choice, whatever the occasion is. A french bistro like we love!"

  • "We had breakfast at Chez Leveque Sunday June 2nd. The restaurant was almost empty, there was confusion at our arrival as our reserved table had been given to someone else. So instead of being seated close to the window, we ended up in the middle of the back of the restaurant. The service was fair to poor, big lack of enthusiasm, slow (for an empty restaurant) and we had to ask for coffee, and so on... Remember, we were there for breakfast. The portion size was small and lacked presentation. for a 50$ bill, this was painful!"

  • "On a perfect spring night, the outdoor tables were very pleasant, if more than a bit cramped. Service was warm and friendly, though sometimes a bit inattentive. My crab cake was tasty, and the sauce delicious, but far too little sauce was provided. My wife`s dish was equally good. With a little more room, a little sharper service, and more balance in the component proportions Chez Leveque could move up that last step."
