Assis au bar, nous avons attendu
Assis au bar, nous avons attendu que le groupe arrive. On nous a servi de bons verres, mais il a fallu demander de petites grignotines (puis nous avons eu du pain et 4 olives). Lorsque le groupe était complet, on nous a présenté notre table, dont la forme n'était pas idéale pour un groupe de 10 personnes. Cela dit, le service a été parfait. Nos verres d'eau étaient toujours pleins, nous nous sommes sentis bien à l'aise de prendre notre temps, puis les serveurs étaient ravis de répondre à nos nombreuses questions. La nourriture était délicieuse. Nous avons tout essayé ou presque depuis les soupes, les tartares, les viandes, le risotto, les fruits de mer... Tout le monde a adoré!

On my latest business trip
On my latest business trip to Montreal Le Pois Penche was recommended by hotel staff. It ended up a very enjoyable experience with excellent service and great food. I had a salmon tartare as appetizer, the veal with truffled mashed potatoes and a very good creme brulee for dessert. The wine served by the glass was of good quality as well. I can highly recommend this place.

We had been looking forward
We had been looking forward to this experience for a while, and while the service was less than stellar, the quality of food more than made up for it. Fresh oysters were to die for!

Le Pois Penché
Great culinary experience. The food is very good and tasty. I recommend it. The service is very good too, but a litle slow. Don't be in a hurry if you go eat there.

A sure bet
I visit this place once every two weeks, and I have never been disapointed yet.
The decor is vibrant, nice terrasse on the street, but it is the food that make the whole thing hold together perfectly.

One of the best brunches in MTL
Unbelievable food. Clearly not enough people know how good this place is for brunch. One of my absolute favourites.

Great food, especially oysters
If you enjoy oysters, or if you're a bit curious about them, try the 5 a huitres at the bar!! The bar's oyster deal prices were excellent! As for the main course, we tried the 2 types of beef tartare, risotto with veal, a seafood soup, and dessert was a hazelnut tiramisu. All was excellent. Perhaps we've had similar quality tartare for smaller price, so overall a bit pricey, but we all were very satisfied about our dining experience. I would add it to your to-try list!

Pea in a pod
Waiter: Friendly and slightly absent
Table: Uncomfortable location
Wine: Markup was insulting - the only reason I would not go back

Very nice waitress
Were nice enough to serve us even though the kitchen was about to close. Did not even feel rushed, had a very nice time.
Good music too
It's very worth it after 9pm because there is a cheap menu with an entree and a main course. It's delicious.

Typical Good French Bistro
Some good, some not-so-good.
Good choice, good quality, good wines at reasonable prices, good service, good location for tourists or urbanites
Not-so-good - big screen TVs at the bar with Ultimate Fighting does not lend itself to a pleasant dining experience (this is NOT supposed to be a sports bar) and not-so-good open patio doors to the terrace that allows soking and hence all the smoke gets drawn into the restaurant by the kitchen's exhaust hoods, so if you like a smoking environment, it is ok, but we won't return until later in the fall when the doors will be closed!

We celebrated my birthday with a group of 10. Everything we ordered was tasty.
Attentive service. Highly recommend.

We have been at Le Pois Penché now 4 times and have never been disappointed! Impossible not to find something to excite your taste buds on the menu and always perfectly cooked. This time around, we were 4 people and all choices were DELICIOUS, be it the Steak frites, salmon tartare (a delight), Atlantic salmon (melt in the mouth) and my husband had the Pariesien for 2 although he had it all to himself (huge seafood platter). Also, very good wine selection allowing you to discover new selections. A must in downtown Montréal.

Amazing Food and Service
We had a server that was fully engaged with us and helped us to have a wonderful dining experience. She recommended beer/wine that suited the food choice perfectly! She had the perfect balance of dialoguing with us and leaving us to enjoy our time together. It was a wonderful second visit to this restaurant during our holiday in Montreal. The food is amazing!! We had been there three years ago and had a similar experience and were determined to return.

This is my third time at le pois penche and had another top notch meal. This is absolutely my favorite restaurant in Montreal!

Le Pois Penché was an exceptional dining experience! My oysters were salty and delicious, and my husband enjoyed his butternut squash soup. He had the duck for his entree which he pronounced perfect. I had the seafood soy pierce which was filled with chunks of white fish and salmon plus a huge shrimp and gigantic scallop. All the seafood was done perfectly and the vegetables and broth were an excellent compliment. Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive without being overbearing. We had a perfect evening!

Chocolate Volcano cake was amazing!
We dined there with our two kids and really enjoyed our meal. The seafood was quite fresh and the steaks were flavourful. How could it not bewhen iit's topped with herbed butter? Dessert was amazing and I'm glad we stayed to indulge. The plush red upholstered chairs add a richness to the ambience and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Pois Penche Bistro
We dined at this lovely Bistro our last night in Montreal and it felt like we were in one of our neighborhood favs in Paris. The food and menu selections were marveilleux and service was tres bien! The wine selections were also perfect for our meal...loved it! Even if a 4 year old did come up with the name...worth a visit :)

We were very pleased with the entire dining experience at this restaurant. We reserved it without any prior knowledge and were very pleased.

First Time's a Charm!
This was my first time at Le Pois Penché and I will surely be coming back. I went to a lot of restaurants during the Taste Mtl menu, but Pois Penché was really one of those that treated us like as if we were regular clients and did not differentiate be it through their hospitable welcome, their menu selection, the quality and taste of their food, or their service. Highly recommended!

4 stars all around
Good food (loved the LPP risotto!), good service, cute decor. The oyster bar looked amazing, will definitely try it next time.

You can't get better than this
What a wonderful experience! Wonderful ambiance for a late night supper. The chef is a master because the food was some of the best I've ever had in Montreal. Superb from the appetizer to the dessert and I would highly recommend.

Wonderful restaurant, with very good food, service and ambiance (background music not too loud - perfect)
Looks like the bar picks up late in the evening.
Will definitely go back to try the after theater dinner (late dinner menu).

An outstanding culinary experience
The food never disappoints. The plates are sensory delights and truly unique.

Excellent Service, Good food.
Could be my fault for ordering the replacement lamb option (they were out of "carrés d'agneau", but the food was good. My wife though would rate it higher a little. What made the evening great was Pierre-Étienne's service: A1. Also, the wine and atmosphere. A good place to grab a late dinner with friends too!

De mieux en mieux!!!
Depuis le début le Pois Penché c'est amélioré Énormément.
Prix plus accessible

Carte de vin améliorée
Un endroit très fortement recommandé et j'y retournerai aussi souvent que possible
