Diner Reviews
  • "Charmant et chic petit restaurant sans snobisme où les repas sont succulents. Nous y allons depuis leur ouverture et les meilleures places sont au bar. D'ailleurs, les cocktails sont aussi délectables que les repas. Barman qui saisit bien les goûts de ses clients. Pour explorer encore plus les plats, opter pour 3 entrées est intéressant (et amplement nourrissant)."

  • "This was (at least) my sixth time at Le Chien Fumant. Every other occasion had been an unqualified success, due in great part to the quality of the food and of the service. This time, the food was great as usual (although I would stay away from the steak next time), but the service was plain pushy. Our waiter was a nervous looking and stressed-out acting man, who kept on insisting that our party of 4 gave him our orders and feedback quickly, and simply made us feel pressured. Seriously: I am not in a position to give feedback on food and drinks if I haven't had time to take a bite or gulp, yet! Very disappointing, and partly ruined the experience for my friend's birthday..."

  • "Je suis allé au Chien Fumant un vendredi soir, très occupé, mais rien n'a affecté la qualité et la rapidité du service. J'ai pris en entrée la pieuvre tandori; excellent choix! Tendre, légèrement sucré et épicé, j'ai rarement mangé de la pieuvre aussi bonne. Servie avec coriandre, tomates, concombre et yogourt frais; une belle découverte que je recommande sans hésiter. Repas principal: tartare coréen servi avec riz collant. Contrairement aux tartares habituels, ici la viande n'était pas hachée en cubes, mais plutôt servi en lanières assez grossières avec riz collant, le tout bien épicé et parfumé avec des herbes fraîches. Différent, mais à essayer!"

  • "We ordered 2 mimosa's to start off, and unfortunately while the OJ was deliciously fresh, the champagne was flat. The waitress replaced them right away, despite the fact we had already finished half! After that we tried a blackberry cocktail with fresh blackberry's, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and an egg white for extra froth. The cocktail was amazing....but it did take almost 15 minutes for us to receive it. For brunch we ordered the Lobster Eggs Benedict with avocado hollandaise, and an order of steak and eggs. Both were absolutely amazing, with the winner being the eggs benny. Overall, while the service was a little slow, the experience was awesome, and most importantly the food was outstanding. I will be going back for sure!"

  • "Went there for our monthly girls' brunch, small place, can't accomadate more than 6 people. Tight squeeze, very pricey, $40 for one person (meal, and two coffee's including tip), music was very loud. Can't tell if staff were genuinely nice or just patronizing us. Had difficultly speaking english, so we switched to french. They have pork in everything - so if you don't eat it this isn't the place for you!"

  • "Nice little neibourghood restaurant with modern french fusion inspired cuisine. Nice wine list. We had a great time. Small restaurant so it becomes noisy when it is full like when we were there."

  • "I had first looked into this restaurant about a year and a half ago but was turned off by negative reviews and never gave them a chance. Recently a friend told us she enjoyed it so we decided to try and were very pleasantly surprised. The whole experience was great."

  • "Nous avions basé notre choix pour cet endroit sur diverses critiques lues dans les revues, journaux et sur le web. Résultat: tout faux. L'entrée du resto est minuscule et sert de passage. C'est très bruyant et très peu éclairé. Impossible de lire le menu sans l'éclairage de notre iPhone. Starter de charcuterie intéressante mais lorsqu'on demande plus de pain, on nous indique qu'il n'y en a plus! Les entrées étaient bonnes sans être exceptionnelles. En principal, l'oie était impossible à couper et à mastiquer et la longe de porc coriace. Très gentiment le serveur n'a pas facturé l'oie. Donc la seule note positive va au pauvre serveur qui s'est confondu en excuses toute la soirée et qui a été d'une gentillesse exemplaire"

  • "We made a last minute reservation, not too sure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great, service was excellent, overall a very enjoyable evening! It's outside of the main streets, but worth the detour."

  • "We enjoyed most of our dishes though one was crazy on fennel and the licorice taste was overwhelming. Our server was excellent, but the restaurant is small, and there were three tables of groups clearly out for a party, so things were very very loud! But overall a fine dinner"

  • "The service was excellent and the food was even better! It's a small neighborhood restaurant with great ambience and very interesting menu that changes all the time. Our server was very friendly to us Anglos, and patiently explained their menu items and specials. I enjoyed every bite of my dinner and it was fun to hang out there with friends for drinks. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Montreal!"

  • "Nice drinks. For the food: the salmon was overcooked and there was bacon in it. I thought it added a nice smoky flavor to it, she wasn't expecting bacon and likes her salmon just almost cooked. I also don't like overcooked salmon. The rabbit was good, which came with a gumbo which was SUPER salty. The rabbit was deep-fried. I don't think this is the best way to do rabbit as it takes forever to get the meat out of a leg. That's why they stew rabbit. The service felt like we were being rushed. If you're just sitting there not ordering, you deserve to be kicked out but we were ordering drinks, food, etc. Our waiter came by so many times asking if we wanted anything else, and came by twice in the FIRST 5 MINUTES to see if we were ready."

  • "Tucked into a quiet area north of Parc Lafontaine Chien Fumant offers everything you could want for. Great cocktails and liqours. Varied and modern menu. Always something unique on the menu. If you don't see something you want just ask the chef to make sopmething else and you can watch him prepare it from the bar stool. Great fresh summer salads."

  • "C'est la deuxieme fois que je mange dans ce restaurant, et je suis loin d'être déçu! Nourriture variée et qui plait à tous les goûts tout en gardant le bel arôme de notre terroir québécois. Un peu bruyant, mais l'atmosphère feutrée et intime amène une très bonne ambiance au total. Un gros bravo, je recommende a tous!"

  • "The place is good and really original.the food is good but nothing special... In the line of other restaurants of the same style in Montreal."

  • "We had a great brunch here; I ordered the lobster florentine benedict and my man ordered the boudin with apple waffles and lardons. Everything was spectacular and special. We truly enjoyed our morning at Le Chien Fumant!"

  • "I went for brunch and our group tried nearly everthing on the brunch menu. Overall, the food was excellent and the portions were generous. I personally had the pulled pork waffles and it was delicious. I also tried the steak and eggs and the lobster benedict. Very tasty! Overall, there brunch menu is a sophisticated twist on the traditional and they have 5-6 interesting choices."

  • "This is an incredible neighborhood spot. It's a little out of the way from the touristy area and the menu is entirely in French but the staff are all very nice and helpful. And the food is tremendous!"
