Le Bremner reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Just try it
    Victoria
    Dined on 1/17/2014
    Very friendly staff. Ambiance was not so noisy which was nice and there was a nice variation of music. The food, well, nothing beats it. Must be willing to step out of comfort zone and into Lamb Heart. Just try it, it's awesome.

  • Really good food / atmosphere

    We have for many years been coming to Montreal with friends for a few days before Christmas -and any other time of the year we can make it. One of our traditions is to go out and enjoy some good food. We were a little late in getting organized this year and did not book any restaurants until a couple of weeks before our arrival. We managed to get a table at Le Bremner for 6:30. What a pleasant surprise as the food was excellent and staff was knowledgeable and very pleasant. We never felt rushed to make room for the next seating and everything we ate was delicious - Try the lamb hearts, tuna sashimi, oysters (cold, fresh, nice brine and perfectly shucked), lamb hearts and the lobster sandwich. We will be back!

    Fun overal experience. Food was generally good, except the hot lobster sandwich was underwhelming, also was served to cold. The clam chowder dish was however excellent. Service was prompt and energetic.

    Dined on 12/4/2013
    Our experience was outstanding other than they are very strick on their opening time. We arrived 1/2 hour early and we're asked to leave until 6 which had us walking the streets in the wet and cold. Once seated though the service was very tentative and the food especially the chowder was top knotch. Give it a try.

  • Le Bremner a hit for client dining
    JDSWinnipeg
    Dined on 11/22/2013
    The spouse of an very important, long-time client suggested Le Bremner for dinner. The three of us had great time, sharing all of the starters and the entrees. From the excellent oyster selection, through to desert it was a real dining experience, paired with good wine and a knowledgeable and attentive server in a comfortable setting. Hats off to the chef! I will be recommending it to my discerning Montreal friends and colleagues.

    Dined on 11/20/2013
    Loved the classy yet comfortable ambience of this restaurant. Perfectly decorated, dim without being dark, with unconvential food options that aren't found in a lot of restaurants (Lamb neck/heart). This was paired with outstanding service, and a restaurant manager/operator that is genuinely concerned with the patrons experience. Also had an expansive wine menu and delicious, flavourful, unique house special nightly cocktails. Great place for a gathering of friends, co-workers, or a romantic evening.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/20/2013
    I was taking clients from out of town out for dinner and wanted to bring them to a trendy place they wouldn't know about. It was my first time as well. I dine out at least twice a week and have tried to vary my outings lately. The service was impeccable and the food very good and different as I expected. However, I found that it was way too expensive. I don't mind the apetizer size plates to be shared but it should be at apetizer price. 24$ for a tiny tiny apetizer literaly one bite per person (we were 4). 32$ for a clam chowder...It's a bit much. I am used to pricy restaurants and dine at Fererra, Toqué!, 400 coups, bouillon, le local etc...regularly but this was ridiculous. Too bad. priced better, I would go back.

    We started with the spicy tomato salad and the Tuna tartare which were so tasty and fresh. After we had the fish of the day which was also very good. Went on a Tuesday night, there wasn't alot of people in the restaurant! Service was friendly and efficient. Will go back.

    The service / servers were great, food was not only delicious but fun and great for sharing. For the 2 of us, with 3 amazing, house-made cocktails each and 4 dishes to share, the bill came to $206. Worth every dime.

    Great old Montreal charm, service was outstanding, helpful and knowledgeable with both the food and wine. The menu is limited but a must for fans of Chuck, fresh and well executed. Lambs neck pasta was rich nicely seasoned, and the skate fish was great!

    If you are looking for a place with lot of ambiance and loud music, you are at the right place. From time to times you could see notorious local people, if you are into that. If you are a foody, you would definitely appreciate your meal. I am not sure you will be amazed. The service was closed, friendly and super knowledgeable. It couldn't have been better to my opinion. We were served by Maude.

    We truly enjoy this restaurant - the staff is excellent and very welcoming - they are very attentive to the guests - One of the criticism is the delay between the apetizer and principal meal - we have been at the restaurant a few times and we have always experienced this occurence - Moreover the delay to obtain the staff's attention once the meal is served is a bit too long - consistency should apply throughout the dining experience - That being said, your staff is very nice and the food is excellent.

    I took my friend, who lives in Montreal, to this restaurant for her birthday. The food was unbelievably good and the service was excellent. It Is a very small place, well decorated and comfortable. I would come back from North Carolina any day (even in the winter) to visit and enjoy this, almost sensual food experience.

    Had anniversary dinner at Le Bremner and it truly will be a meal to remember. First of all, the staff is top notch but not over-bearing. They knew the menu, how it is prepared, and how it should be served. The location, although a bit if a nuisance to actually get in to, is in a beautiful location of Old Montreal. The terrace / bar out in the back had "cool" written all over it. As for the food - OUTSTANDING. We met the head chef, Danny Smiles, after our meal and I admitted to him that I could live off of his lobster sandwich, quail in a bucket (a fried chicken comparison that was out of this world), and the pancakes for dessert and not regret the weight I would put on. Overall, a memorable meal and we will be back.

    I finally tried this gem. Every course was an experience. From the amazing scallops appetizer to the great seafood entre, this meal met all my expectations. Unfortunatly they sat us in the outdoor section whichever they close off for the winter and we were the only ones out there. I'm not sure why they would t move us inside but out waiter made the experience memorable.

    This was my second experience at Le Bremner. My frst time was simply extraordinary. I was so looking forward to it! I reserved weeks in advance. But, when the waiter showed us the back door, my face dropped. I didn't even know they had this very "rustic" back room which, in my opinion, should be used for storage or as a wine cellar, not dining. In October, it's cold, bone chilling humid despite the two big heaters. The food and the wine were still amazing and the service was good. Our waitress knew the menu very well and made every dish sound more appealing than the previous one. Just make sure your reservation is in the MAIN room and you will enjoy tasty, sublime food in a cozy and subdued atmosphere. YOU WILL LOVE IT!

    All I have to say is Shrimp & Cornbread! Everything about Le Bremner was outstanding! Attentive & knowledgable service staff; comfortable dining; awesome mixologists and the food -all of it - was some of the most delicious we've ever had. We left most of the decisions up to our waitress including the dessert Pancakes, (not something I would normally have ordered) and we were blown away by it all!

    Perfect restaurant, perfect night. Amazing food, extensive wine list and the knowledge to back it up by the bartender Mike. Possibly the best service we've ever had, our server was named Maude. Dessert (Pot de Creme and Tarte au Sucre) were absolutely awesome. But then again, I would expect nothing less from a Chuck Hughes restaurant!

    I was pleasantly surprised that there were Vegetable Only options on the menu. Often a vegetarian dish is filled with starch; but I was able to enjoy both a spicy tomato salad (which was awesome) and a delicious green cauliflower dish! I am not a vegetarian; but sometimes want to have a hot vegetable plate after a meat/protein option appetizer. The oysters were outstanding!
