    Ordered from the Montreal Restaurant Week menu, the mushroom risotto was excellent, as were the guinea hen, the chocolate and lime pie desserts. The wines (be the glass) were overpriced for the quality, and the glasses were filled sparingly. Service was friendly.

    The food was great, service perfect and the music was great fun (oldies from the 50's). We were leery at first because of the "hype" around the place but we had a great evening and would return with pleasure.

    The main meal which was a dish containing fish and braised octopus was really disappointing. The octopus was so chewy and the fish was over cooked, I was expecting much more.

    The service and the food were both good, but nothing special. The food was all beautifully plated but I did not find it to be flavourful. However, the atmosphere and the set-up of the restaurant is beautiful, youthful and lively.

    Beautifully decorated. Their country sandwich was delicious. And, with their $25 all you can drink (alcoholic and non) during brunch on weekends, you can't go wrong.

    I went with a client hoping to impress him with a combination of good food and fun place. The food was average and although it was a glorious evening, very few patrons were present. My cut of meat would not pass as a filet mignon as you could see nerves in a good part of it.

    I was looking for some "authentic", albeit still French-Canadian, French food in Montreal. Around 7:30, the place was dead, but no problem. Food was absolutely delicious, and didn't take long to cook. At the end of the meal, our waiter asked if we'd like dessert or coffee, and we declined. We then proceeded to wait for 40 minutes without a return from our waiter, as he helped the French-speaking tables next to us multiple times over. Then, as I paid the bill, I was asked "If I was Canadian", and said no. I was then told that there was a mandatory 15% minimum tip and, quite literally, was asked to take my wallet out again. I won't generalize the city of Montreal, however, I did not appreciate the treatment of the "French" wait staff.

    La nourriture n'était vraiment pas bonne. Mes raviolis au canard étaient durs et je n'y ai aucunement goûté le canard. Mon amie a pris le magret avec gnocchis et elle a du "se battre" avec sa pièce de viande. Les gnocchis étaient très pâteux, bref bouffe médiocre. La musique était beaucoup trop forte, on ne pouvait même plus s'entendre parler. Par contre, le service était excellent et le personnel très gentil et souriant. Ça m'a beaucoup déçue...

    Very nice French meal with good wine (but pricey starting at $45+/bottle). Nearly empty on an off-season Monday night. Ignore the dessert menu of great sounding sweets and ask for a cheese plate. You won't be disappointed!

    I brought my mother in law, living in Ontario, to Le Cinq and she and I loved it! The gothic architecture, the good food and the good service was really up to the standard I was excepting from this restaurant. I recommand it for those who want a good experience of fine dining in Montréal. The only thing I would like to add, it is expensive, approx. 160$ with tips and taxes for 2 people with a bottle of wine.

    Voilà un restaurant à recommander pour les amis. Pour ceux qui aiment la bonne bouffe française. Le service est excellent. Nous avons été bien accueilli et l'équipe est super sympa. L'espace est charment et très accueillant. J'ai adoré l'ancienne décoration sur le plancher en fleure de lis.

    For Valentine's Day, Le Cinq had a fixed 5-course menu. My wife and I were impressed by the flavors and presentation of each dish that was served. The service was also excellent. Our waiter explained each dish as it was served, recommended a wine that complimented our meal, and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes after a dish was completed.

    The food presentation was very nice, the food itself was very ordinary with little or no taste. Wine too expensive starting at $50. so we did the glass option at $11. Beautiful old church converted into a restaurant but with way too much lighting, inconsistent decor and very bad paint. The music was ok, but very loud. Too many people walking in and out of the restaurant area, most likely due to the lounge on the second floor. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant for pleasant night out for people whom want to enjoy a good meal with some good affordable wine and of course a beautiful environment. Please note that the waiting staff were very, very good.

    We came four for dinner and realised that the building was a great piece of architecture!!! There is a disco in the second part of the building starting at 10PM. Now about the restaurant part: the food was great, and the service quite extraordinary! Just a few examples: Entering, we were offered a choice of tables which were all good but had different pount of view The pace was perfect and the waiter' attitude was just friendly enough without entering our personal bubble. questions on food were answered and wine pairing suggestion was excellent. All in all, a great experience to be repeated soon...

    Had a late night bite at le Cinq last Friday. The Bistro space is beautiful but the food was not. Pasta was barely warm and actually undercooked, creme brûlée was thin and watery. Service was good, wine was good, but the food dissappointed.
