    For a Monday night it was perfect, not a lot of people but enough for a little romantic ambiance. We had a brisque au homard for entree, it was amazing, the bread they serve you is really good too. The tartare was really good and the short rib was excellent. Seriously in my top 3 restaurants I've ever been to. And the damage wasn't bad at all, 85$ for everything, including the taxes and tips.

    Small portions, bland food, servers with no knowledge of what's in the food. I ordered the leaks vinaigrette, which was a very tiny portion. Flavor was not good, and no one seemed to know what Bayonne powder was (it was on the menu). Also came with Bacon, even though it didn't say so on the menu, and the quail egg was scrambled and tasted old. The main was a lobster risotto, which was a tiny portion, and the peas were under cooked. Other that that, it tasted fine. I also found 2 lobster shell pieces in my risotto. For the dessert, I ordered the orange scone, which was cold, dry and almost stale. The Tomme des Demoiselles and the squash marmalade were delicious though. Over-all a very disappointing experience. Won't be going back again.

    Nice ambiance but the food was disappointing. Dishes sat under the heat lamps long enough for the sauces to separate, food was ok, suggested wines were flat and the whites were warm, but at least the staff was friendly. Overall too expensive for what was served.

    This is a very good restaurant. Great? We don't have a choice when we check one or more choices. It's good for lunch. Not great. It's good for brunch. Not great. Change of words might be a good (or great) idea. The entree was way too small and simple. The coq au vin was delicious.

    This was not our first visit to the restaurant but we had not eaten there for awhile. Our dinner was wonderful and the quality was what we remembered. The osso bucco main dish and the watercress soup starter were fresh and beautifully prepared. Our guests from out of town were very pleased as well. The dinner specials are the best value in town for first class French cuisine without being stuffy or pretentious. Our waitstaff was friendly, attentive and helpful. We rediscovered a real gem and plan to dine there more often.

    We have spent a very pleasant and relaxing evening with friends. The food was excellent, no matter what we have chosen. The service was fast, no waiting time between dishes. Our waitress was very helpful and smiling all the time. No rush from the staff to see us leaving once the bill was paid. Will come back definitely despite it was not our first time at Chez Levêque.

    The evening was not great. I ordered a Bouillabaisse and it came with no "soup" just pieces of seafood, I called the waiter over and he agreed and went to fill it up with some broth, which came back lukewarm. A salad that was ordered but when it arrived, it was the wrong salad. We ordered coffees and the order came back wrong-three Americanos,rather than two allonges and one americano. The service was very slow. The evening was expensive, the service bad and the food was mediocre. I live in Montreal, I was with a friend from France and two friends from India, everyone agreed.

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.

    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.

    momo
    Dined on 11/7/2013
    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.
