I decided to write about Delmo's again, because the staff made me feel at home even though i am not one of their many regular customers who have been going there of decades. They remembered me and made me feel great. The staff is terrific and very welcoming. This time we tried the halibut - flown in fresh from Norway, top quality and impeccably done- and lobter newburg -over 2.5 pounds!- For starters salmon tartare and grilled octopus, both perfect. Truly a wonderful restaurant, and i am becoming a fan.

This is my favorite seafood restaurant in Montreal. Great seafood and excellent service. This place is great for travellers because whenever i am in Montreal i can sit at the bar at Chez Delmo and always have someone to talk to if i want, with Chris the bartender or one of the regulars. i had octopus and seafood pasta, both were delicious. Will come back!

fresh seafood, perfectly done
Everything is fresh and well done. Service is adequate, friendly. You'd think that they would lack because most are young, but perfectly trained and knowledgable. I love the drinks at the bar! Highly recommend

Fresh seafood, doesn't come cheap but when prepared right is unbeatable and this restaurant serves it perfectly. We tried the halibut and the walleye and both were terrific, I thought the wine was reasonably priced so overall a very good value. Also the mural is stunning.

An excellent meal
Lives up to its famous reputation. My time at this restaurant will be unforgettable.
Even though the restaurant was full, the service was very professional, relaxed and helpful. The greatest thing about the evening was the excellent meal: fresh seafood cooked to perfection.
We finished the night at the bar where a few regulars were watching the hockey game with the owners.
A beautiful experience all around.

This is the place.
I recently took some colleagues to dinner at Chez Delmo.
The food was excellent - perfectly prepared.
Our waiter was very helpful and attentive when the restaurant was pretty empty. Unfortunately, we were forgotten once the majority of tables were filled.
Regardless, the waiter was extremely nice, and that one small glitch in a wonderful evening would not stop me from returning.
If you like fresh fish and seafood perfectly prepared, this is the place to come.

Freshness counts for everything!
I had the snow crab salad and it was delicious. We were a group and decided to share entrees. The grilled octopus was a little bit chewy (disappointed with that one) but the salmon carpacio was delicious. Service was very good. It was a quiet night. Can't wait for the summer to go back and enjoy the oysters in season. One of my favourite seafood restaurants in town. Can't beat the freshness!!

We have been Delmo customers
We have been Delmo customers since the late 1960’s
The new owners have kept most of items that were on the menu at the old Delmo.
The entree of Oysters was a very good choice. The salmon was cooked to perfection; the fries are still as good as ever. Desert also very good, although I miss the Pelat Genevois .
The service was very good. All in all it was a most enjoyable experience.
4/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Even better than the old Delmo!!
congratulations to the new owners! i was a regular at Delmo's for many years, and i will be a regular at the new Delmo. The fish was perfect (halibut provençal) and the lobster was amazing. we will be back soon.

excellent without being pretentious
The food was well presented, well prepared and very well served. Service was excellent and the choice of wines very good. An excellent dinner at a restaurant that is of a high standard without being pretentious.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delmos is one of my favourite restaurants in Montreal. The lobster is amazing and the service impeccable. We have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent endroit pour manger
Excellent endroit pour manger des fruits de mer, tout ce que nous avons goûté étaient excellent, les pétoncles fondaient dans la bouche. Ambience très agréable en couple ou en groupe. Excellent service. Nous allons y retourner c'est sûre.

Hit and miss Service (not
Hit and miss Service (not the first time, and herd similar comments for colleagues). We had to wait quite some time to get the menu on a lunch hour, and there were only 4 tables occupied in the restaurant. I like their food but the ambiance is a bit stuffy. A good option but not my favorite in old Montreal.

An Enjoyable Evening
The wait staff were attentive and friendly. The food was well prepared and well presented. Prices seem a bit high but overall OK except for the desserts which I feel we're priced way over the top for what was offered. The wine list was medium in size and tended to offer mostly higher priced wine which might limit the choice for some diners. Only about half a dozen in the $50 or lower range.
Wile I can find nothing specific to criticize in the service, I did find the delivery a bit 'too staged' with the many participants serving the courses and tending to the table. It was difficult to get a truly warm and intimate ambiance overall.
Nevertheless, a thoroughly enjoyable food experience.

F1 Weekend 2013
Overall very good experience for our group of nine. Appetizers - Seafood salad and clam chowder were excellent. Lobster bisque was a disappoinment - thin and tasteless. Our group had a mixture of Cod (grilled and menuiere) Sea Bass, Halibut and Bavette and all were outstanding. While service was generally very good and timing was ok, particularly given how busy the restaurant was on the Saturday night of F1 weekend, the cheese trays for dessert were late arriving and were not accompanied with cheese knives or additional bread - for some in our group, a very disappointing way to end the meal.
Will definitely return to Chez Delmo for the location, ambiance and quality of the both the food and presentation.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
great seafood, better than advertis
We were a party of 8 in town fro Grand Prix weekend. Our first 3 choices were actually booked, and we went here because it looked good and reviewed fairly well. It is even better than Yelp or Open Table advertised. The Salmon tartare was very good (my dish), the Walleye was reported to excellent, and the Lobster Thermidor was top notch. These reviews came from a group of gentlemen who live in New York mostly, and know their seafood very well. It was fresh, well prepared, and plated very well. The owner was extremely helpful beforehand in some questions that came up regarding the reservation, and the staff was likewise very professional and accomodating. It couldn't have been a better dinner.

Great food, great service
Had wonderful dinner while in Montreal for Gran Prix weekend, service was excellent and the food delicious.

Been there a few times and the seafood was always very fresh and reasonable portions.

What a find! Our first experience here but it won't be the last. Delicious food, great wine list. The service was excellent, attentive without intrusion. Elise was very professional and engaging. Loved it!
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always happy with Delmo's
Been there a few times and have always been very happy with the food, service and atmosphere. i've commented before so this one is for consistency! The lobster thermidor is the best.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top notch service, very professional waiters and staff. The food was cooked to perfection and the presentation was simple and nice. Overall this is a very pleasant restaurant which offers great value. We will definitely go back!

Had lunch Chez Delmo with
Had lunch Chez Delmo with a business acquaintance from Ottawa who didn't know the restaurant. My guest was very pleasantly surprised. The table d'hôte offered an interesting assortment of dishes, whether fish, seafood or meat. The atmosphere was perfect for a quiet discussion. The service was attentive, courteous and done with panache, without being overbearing. The food was excellent, as always. My guest had the seafood salad and I enjoyed the Spanish shrimps. The wine, suggested by our waitress, was a perfect complement to our meal. I'll definitely go back and recommend it to anyone who enjoys fine dining. Chez Delmo is quite simply the best seafood restaurant in the city.

Loved this restaurant. Went
Loved this restaurant. Went here with family on my birthday - they were very attentive and very friendly. The food was outstanding - I recommend the arctic char if they have it on the menu - it melts in your mouth. This was our favoritie restuarant in Montreal - would go back there again!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time at Delmo's yesterday. We used to go years ago when the place was an institution, and i must say i prefer this new version. The service is friendlier and the menu more interesting, although a lot of the old items are still available. The bisque was amazing, and the halibut was perfect. It's great to see some the regulars sitting at the bar and chatting with the staff as if they were members of a family, everyone seems to know each other. The decor is stunning. Thank you for bringing back this fabulous institution!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best fish in town
Very impressed with the quality of everything, including service. Not the fastest, but if you want a fast food restaurant, there are plenty of those. If you want fresh seafood done right, served with a friendly smile in a nice dining room, this is it. Very comfortable chairs, scenic view, great historic bar, and art on the walls. The wine cellar is beautiful. Overall a great place.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service, not rushed.
Excellent service, not rushed. Food very good. We had a window seat that allowed view of foot traffic in Old Montreal. A pleasure. Would absolutely recommend this restaurant and would go again in a heartbeat.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have to try
We had the salmon tartare. This is my favourite place for this dish in Montreal.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
As good as it gets
I had dinner Chez Delmo recently. The experience was nothing short of exceptional. The ambiance was perfect, the service was attentive yet discreet and done with flair. The cuisine is Traditional French and the wine list is beautifully composed and with obvious attention to the diner's total experience. The Lobster Bisque was simply perfect, with plenty of lobster meat. I had the Filet-Mignon which was grilled to perfection, was lightly seasoned yet the meat was tasteful and melted in my mouth. I was served a glass of Saint-Estèphe to accompany my meal... wow! And to crown such an epic meal, I had the fondant au chocolat. A must try for any chocolate lover. I will be sure to go back soon.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was delicious!!!! The service was great and the ambiance was lovely.
It is gastronomic portions so if you are very hungry I would recommend you to eat an entree...
Overall, perfect evening diner!

Terrific Fresh Fish
our party of four ordered different appetizers; standout were the calamari. Entrees were scallops, cod, artic char, and filet of sole. All perfectly prepared with not too over the top sauces. Deserts were all delicious; especially the Napoleon. Excellent wine list with a helpful staff. Ownner called that afternoon as I had mixed up our reservation. I believe same great ocation in downtown Montreal for 25 years.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delmo from the past
In general very good but desert list is ordinary for that type of restaurant.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mediocre ambience but outstanding
Mediocre ambience but outstanding seafood make this a great find near Old Montreal. Small, but very intelligent wine list. Pleasant but slightly hassled service. Overall, a great place.

Fun art, nice service, good food
We had two nights in Montreal and chose Chez Delmo based on its Open Table reviews. The service was good, the food was good, and we enjoyed our evening. The original art and murals on the wall were fun, although I personally was vague on their connection to good French cooking.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great food ! Romantic
Always great food ! Romantic view when sitting near one of the huge windows with view of beautiful old montreal building across the street. Service was a bit slow that evening probably because of Montreal a table event.Great bartender at the bar, very entertaining, showed us a few tricks and made great cocktail.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Anniversary Dinner
Our first time in Montreal. We chose Chez Delmo after spending time reading reviews of several restaurants online. We were very glad we picked Chez Delmo. Service was great. Atmosphere was energetic and the food was full of flavour. We recommend to anyone.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very welcoming staff and elegant decor. The food is fresh, traditionally served, perfectly cooked. The portions are adequate and well presented. The choice on the menu is very impressive: over 20 starters and over 20 entrées of fish or seafood! This is definitely one of the best seafood restaurants we have ever experienced and i would recommend this place to anyone who knows their fish. The bar scene is nice, with younger diners who seem like regulars dropping in for a drink...nice ambience overall
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Quality Fish Restaurant
We ate here based on the reviews, we were not disappointed. The freshness of the fish and the care taken to cook it was evident. The lobster rolls are really good, would be happy to eat here again.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the start, a very welcoming owner sat us at a table by a stunning cellar (the decor in this restaurant is superb, with very artistic murals). Right away we felt good, the place is cozy, elegant and comfortable. But the food! Perfectly prepared fresh fish and seafood. Starters worth trying are octopus, wild salmon carpaccio and fish soup. Entrees we tried: halibut, grilled cod, lobster Newburg and waleye amandin. All were amazing. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Cocktails are a must!! we had ours at the bar where Chris the bartender impressed us with his flamed drinks! Fabulous night overall in this historical restaurant which opened in the 1930s. Highly recommend.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Came here with a friend and we both had fish for dinner. I had the haddock, cooked to perfection, and my friend had the sea bass. We sat at the bar where they had a very knowledgeable and helpful bartender, and their wine list was great. Would definitely come here again whenever Im in the mood for seafood.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Restaurantt excellent !.
Nous avons apprécié l`accueil, le service et la nourriture. Le Fish & chip est particulièrement délicieux et la carte des vins élaborée avec des vins à des prix abordable. Idéal pour le lunch mais aussi ne soirée pour une sortie entre amis. Un service de valet est offert en soirée, un + dans ce secteur.
