A word from Les 400 Coups
A cozy space, a refined and inspired cuisine as well as a stimulating and enriching experience.An appealing restaurant which proposes a seasonal cuisine with a focus on using local ingredients and promoting our local talent: that is the mandate that the 400 Coups were given. With chef Guillaume Cantin and his team in the kitchen, the sweet delicacies of pastry chef Brian Verstraten and a nice bottle or glass of wine proposed by sommelier William Saulnier, eating out has never been so pleasant.

    My husband and I went to the 400 Coups as a wedding present that was given to us and we used it for our 1st wedding anniversary. It was exceptional, from the moment we came in, we were greeted with a smile, what followed was delicious food, service with a smile. Great atmosphere. Thank you very much for making our one year wedding anniversary so special. Suzanne and Robert xoxox

    My brother and his wife were visiting from the UK and we decided to try this place. Wow! Best meal I have ever had at a restaurant. The food was incredibly flavourful...pickled strawberries that exploded, deserts that just burst in your mouth. The cremeux de caramel was fantastic. Service was perfect...friendly and informative. Great location. Small, intimate restaurant that I would definitely recommend.

    This restaurant is a must - even in a city with many worthy restaurants. It takes food seriously and uses fresh, high quality ingredients that are expertly and artfully prepared. My wife's guinea hen was succulent, moist and flavorful throughout. My aged duck was, simply, superb. The wine list has interesting choices at fair prices. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient. Dinner was, overall, a fantastic experience. Highly recommended!

    From the smooth richness of the cold onion soup (with precision garnishment placement), to the complex layering of the suckling pig and yellow sturgeon entrees, this meal was supurb. Dessert was almost too lovely to eat, but unlike many pretty -- and oftentimes tasteless desserts -- every morsel was perfect and slightly different depending upon what you chose to scoop up with your spoon. Selections: caramel cream and dark chocolate. Re: wine. Excellent recommendation from our waiter. Cannot recall name. Service was thoughtful, engaging, and attentive. No hint of superiority, which can be concern for non-French speaking visitors. Our waiter thoughtfully hailed us a cab upon our departure. It was a perfect evening.

    The space is beautiful, the service was great and the wine pairing was amazing, but the food was just missing something. We had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing and while we enjoyed the experience, the food was not the highlight (the wine was amazing though - great job by the sommelier). I think there are a lot of good things here, and we had a good time. But with 5 courses I would have expected at least one to be absolutely amazing, and we didn't get that.

    We love this restaurant after discovering it on last year's trip to Montreal. We have recommended it to others who have also raved about their experiences. We were in Montreal for my partners birthday last weekend and of course returned. The meal and wine were once again excellent. Our server was nice but seemed to forget about us a lot. Will not stop us from continuing to recommend this restaurant to others we know who visit Montreal.

    We loved everything about this restaurant. Think it is very upbeat bistro style with wonderful food. Actually thought there was a little too much food in my main course. I had the Arctic Char. Really enjoyed the pate de fois gras with the rhubarb. What a lovely combination. Don't usually have dessert but could not resist the chocolate creation. It was delicious! Our waiter was William and he was friendly, warm, knowledgeable and attentive. We also enjoyed the wines by the glass. A first rate place and we will return and recommend it to friends!

    We had a terrific experience. The waiter described the food very well and had great recommendations. The onion soup (cold, and not your traditional onion soup) was really something special as a starter. The smoked lobster was also very good, maybe not in the same class of surprising taste. Both the arctic char and the sturgeon main meals were made to perfection, the sturgeon was the winner. The desserts were another highlight of the evening. Both the presentation and the taste made us want to try more. The service was excellent.

    Quel bonheur de voir une équipe tant en cuisine qu'en salle qui excelle dans la qualité des plats et du service. Les 400 coups offre une véritable expérience culinaire dans un cadre agréable et pour un prix comparable à celui d'un menu offert par des ''fast food''. Ce restaurant est sans doute un des meilleurs de Montréal.

    The food was solid and flavorful, but the service was hideous. When asked for any recommendations, the server simply said everything was great as this was the finest restaurant in Montreal. Gee, thanks. My fish was overcooked, but as the waiter never checked on us until the meal was over, at which point he told me, "if you have any complaints we have a little blue card to fill out... ha ha... of course you could have no complaints--I trust it was as wonderful as I said it would be." We just smiled and asked for the check. An evening that we will never get back, unfortunately on our last night of a Montreal vacation. My advice is to steer clear and eat elsewhere.

    This is the first time I've been back to 400 Coups since the change on chefs/management. We went with the tasting menu to get the full experience and were not disappointed! I was very impressed by 4 out of the 5 dishes (the sweetbreads were a bit lacking in flavour and texture)--but overall very interesting flavours, very fresh, the rabbit was superbly tender and succulent, the smoked eel tantilisingly smokey, and the tartar sublime. Desserts were also very flavourful. I would highly recommend and am definitely coming back.

    We had been wanting to go to 400 Coups for some time, and were not disappointed. The food was excellent for all four of us. The wine list could be a bit more elaborate with the additon of less pricey choices. The music playlist is all over the place with American pop hits ( rock and country ) from over the years and a bit too loud. Mellow jazz instrumental would be more appropriate.

    Wow----we are from one of the world’s restaurant capitals---San Francisco, where great food is the norm. Well, Les 400 Coups is something special and would rank in the best in any world city. A beautiful and intimate spot with specially friendly and helpful service, the dishes were to moan about. We tried a few selections and were consistently overwhelmed by the rich mixture of flavors in every dish. Not sure how they were able to blend so many unique flavors, but we were thankful to have had the opportunity.

    With service that is neither too posh nor brash and in your face, Les 400 Coups made us feel really at home, plus - you get an English menu. The drinks were well recommended and expertly made but the food is the element of a night out that should be remembered and it was just that. The perfect balance between chiefy and munchable. All three courses were interesting and moreish. Up until now we have visited a lot of restaurants in Montreal and most have the look of the food right but tripped up when it comes to the taste. Les 400 Coups may stretch your budget, but its very much worth it.

    Les 400 Coups is a jewel in Old Montreal. There were lots of "foodies" in the restaurant enjoying bottles of wine and quiet conversation. The veal tartar is amazing. We also ordered the Arctic Char and the Suckling Pig and highly recommend those selections. The restaurant itself beautifully done.

    We were 5 for dinner and had each had 3 courses, generally different, so we saw different dishes. All very good to excellent and the service was very attentive. Only negative was the fact that the table was 3 tables for 2 pushed together - so we were sitting 3 on one side and 2 on the other side. The table edges were not level so we couldn't get the 2 persons 'centered'. It was awkward for conversation considering the ambient noise level. Too bad there were not a few round tables - but it is a small dining space.

    Came here for a friend's birthday and had the tasting menu w/wine pairings. The food was quite good, creative, and beautiful. We both found it interesting that the last two courses on the tasting menu were basically dessert, but we loved them! Service(with the exception of the sommelier) was another story. Pretty slow between courses. We noted food allergies in the booking, on the day of confirmation call, and again when we selected the tasting menu. Our 1st course still contained the items. They then half corrected it replacing one of our plates while the other person(who wasn't allergic but not to have them on her's either) moved them to the side. They then gave her another course later with items on our "list" in another course.
