    We had the fixed menu during Montreal's version of Dine Around Town. Visually creative dishes, a delight to the palate with layers of subtle flavours. Good sized portions, though I confess I 'd love to have seconds of their desserts. Excellent service, bilingual staff.

    With all the accolades Laloux has received from critics and foodies alike, it could easily have fallen short somewhere along the line, but it didn't - in fact it exceeded all my expectations. From the warm welcome we received on arrival, to the romantic corner table we were shown to, the outstanding service from knowledgable staff, and of course the exquisite food, the entire experience was seamless and wonderful. We can't wait to return!

    Rien à dire sur le service aux tables. Le personnel est professionnel, discret et present en meme temps. Par contre, le contenu des assietes etait tres decevant. Je crois que le chef devrait se remettre en question car pour le prix payé, il y a au moins une vingtaine de resto à Montreal qui offrent une qualité superieure pour un prix largement inferieur. Je suis déçu c'est vraiment dommage pour le personnel de salles.

    J'ai été a quelques reprises chez Laloux au cours des dernières annees. J'ai habituellement bien apprécié. Toutefois, tout récemment, j'ai été tres déçu des plats que nous avons commandés: tartare de bœuf et boudin. J'ai de loin apprécie ces deux plats, dans d'autres restaurants. Une belle note pour l'accueil, bien que peu achalandé ce soir la. J'y retournerai... éventuellement.

    Right behind our dining experience at Manresa in Los Gatos and Inverlochy Castle in Scotland, lands our experience at Laloux. It was such a surprise and the best value of the 3 by far! We had the Tasting Menu (I had mine paired with wine). The portions were generous, expertly prepared and presented, and the service was stellar. We could not have been more impressed!

    Excellent restaurant pour un tête à tête puis que le niveau de bruit est très acceptable le tout dans un décor français. Après un accueil un peu discret, le service a été excellent et la nourriture, surtout le ris de veau qui est un must absolu à essayer. La terrine de fois gras est aussi un incontournable. Bravo Laloux, vous êtes toujours à la hauteur!

    In planning a long weekend visit to Montreal, I used some of the online restaurant rating services to locate Laloux. The ratings were accurate. It is a wonderful place. The food was very creative. I had the beef tartar which was a wonderful combination of tastes and textures. My wife is still talking about the Artic Char. My cavatelli was great. It was our best dining experience of the weekend. Looking forward to going there again.

    I went to Laloux on a Thursday night, and I was surprised to see how empty the restaurant was-only about a dozen other people in the place. With food and service as fantastic as this, the restaurant should be packed. We had the chef's menu, and it was nothing short of outstanding from the amuse bouche to the dessert. The presentation of each plate was just superb-the uni starter was served in the emptied shell on a bed of salt. Each dish was perfectly balanced in taste and texture and the ingredients were obviously very fresh and seasonal. My only minor complaint is a lack of cocktail menu-being American I'm used to craft cocktails-but the bartender/sommelier was incredibly gracious in making me something. Service was very friendly as well.

    After concert/opera, my wife and I look forward to dining at Laloux because the maitre d' takes time to select a quiet table allowing us to chat about the performance without having to raise our voice. We also appreciate getting fast track service sordering our meal, selecting appropriate wines with suggestions from the sommelier, and since it is generally late evening and we are quite hungry, getting our entrées without delay! The beauty about Laloux is that all of this repeatedly happens when we eat out there apart from the fact that the food is impeccable and the price is right. We will be back soon.

    I was at Laloux for a business lunch with 2 colleagues and this was a very quiet place. There were very few people on this Wednesday. So we were able to talk business without being disturbed. Food is inspired, very good in taste. We had salmon for main dish and scallops as an appetizer. Both were perfectly cooked. Wine list is not the most extensive one but contains many private importations which make it interesting for discoveries. Just one bemol on my list: there is a very limited selection of desserts on the lunch menu. For a restaurant of this level, it could be slightly extended. In summary, a good experience, not a memorable one, but it was exactly what I expected for a business lunch.

    World Class Chef Jonathan Lapierre-Réhayem has been at the restaurant for 3 years, need I say more? We ate at this restaurant for the first time last week, the food was so good I wanted to cry, service was- let's just say it puts the Ritz Carlton to shame. I unknowingly mentionned it was my husband's birthday when I was making the reservation, and they actually wished him a happy birthday with a personalized little bag of cookies right before they served desert... Seriously? Super thoughtful, and I've honestly never have had such attentive service. My new #1 restaurant BY FAR (my previous #1 was Le Local)

    Worth moving to Montreal for. My salad was comprised of about 10 different vegetables, picked directly from local farms by the chef, and exquisitely prepared and arranged. I've never heard my husband talk about fish the way he has described his meal at Laloux. He is still raving about it a week later. The service was warm, friendly and informative. Don't skip dessert, even if you typically would do so. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

    Travelled to Montreal for the weekend and wanted to have a nice dinner. I booked the restaraunt unsing Opn Table it narrowed down the closest restaurants fitting my preference. The restaurant was easy to find and upon walking in my friend and I were greeted straight away. It was busy even though we booked our table for 9:15pm. The servers spoke English which helped and were extremely attentive. The good was fantastic an all levels, presentation, speed and taste. We had a cocktail and 3 course meal each and each dinner came to around $80 with tip. I would highly recommend this restarunt to foodies! I had steak tartar, veal sweetbreads, and profiteroles with caramel and vanilla bean ice cream.

    This restaurant reminded me a lot of restaurants I have frequented in Europe. It is fairly small, has slower service, good food, many courses. It is a really great experience if you have time for it. The food was really good-like I mentioned we had a lot of different things-but my entree was a cut of beef with roasted fingerling potatoes and a great sauce. There were a lot of mixed flavors that were untraditional. A good find, and I would definitely recommend it.
