Hidden Treasure !
One of the greatest experience I've had in years. The food is absolutely divine. Family owned, the staff makes you feel welcome from the moment you're in, all the way throught the end. Not too loud at lunch (perfect for business lunch !) and great ambiance for dinner. A sure succes !

The best of Brittany meets Montreal
Inventive menu meets creative food chemistry with a beautiful presentation!
This combination is rare and limited only to those very special restaurants with a genius for a chef.
Make every effort to go whenever you are in Montreal. It's worth the trip!
Few can put together an exceptional appetizer, entree and desert. My wife and I each had a tasting menu and slected different items and then shared. EVERY item was exceptional!

We were looking for a special place to celebrate our friends 10th Anniversary and chose La Porte after alot of research on line. It did not disappoint. We all chose the Gourmand menu and had wonderful plate after plate. The lamb was crazy good, as was the Hallibut and lobster plate. We all sampled the salmon which was melt in your mouth good. Great service topped it off. Loved it!

A few times a year, my wife and I splurge a little and eat somewhere exciting and expensive. We've eaten in the top restaurants of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC and to a lesser degree New York. La Porte is the only restaurant in Montreal that we've been to that could handily compete it that category. Indeed, La Porte has become one of our favourite restaurants anywhere.
The food here is creative and well-executed. The breadth of choices in their small menu is quite astonishing, given the size of the restaurant. And it's all perfectly done. They do a superb job of matching wines with the food (primarily French wines to match with the Breton-inspired cuisine). And their hospitality is fantastic. We will be back.

I WILL BE BACK!!!!
Mon conjoint et moi nous allons à ce restaurant environ 2 fois par an depuis son ouverture et nous n'avons jamais été déçus.
La confection de chaque plat est soignée et inventive. En fait je sors toujours de ce restaurant en me disant que tous ces restaurants de Montréal qui présentent un plat, avec une viande ou un poisson, un brocoli jaune, une carotte blanche sur une sauce rouge, sont une véritable arnaque comparés à La Porte!!

Un sans faute
Notre experience a La Porte a ete a la hauteur de nos attentes. Le service est professionnel et amical, la nourriture est excellente et le tout est offert a un tres bon rapport qualite-prix. Nous y retournerons sans hesiter.

Une excellente table
Nous étions bien heureux de découvrir "La Porte". Dommage que nous y ayons mis 8 ans avant de découvrir ce restaurant. Tout ce que nous y avons dégusté, constituait une explosion de saveurs. Le service fut très sympathique. Par contre, comme cette portion de la rue St.-Laurent souffre d'une baisse de fréquentation, le restaurant était un peu trop tranquille en cette fin de mois d'août.

Great restaurant experience! Wish I had known about this restaurant before with 3 "menu dégustation" at 65$, 85$ and 100$.

La Porte est superbe!
I brought my fiance here for his birthday and it was a perfect choice. We splurged on the tasting menu as well as wines to match each dish, and we were treated with a lovely range of perfectly prepared dishes, served by a very knowledgeable, professional and friendly waiter. We also met the lovely owner and the chef. One lovely little touch - the chef wrote in cream "joyeux anniversaire!" on Michael's dessert plate.
To truly enjoy this restaurant, do not rush; we were there the entire evening and enjoyed our time, savouring the food and the relaxing ambience. If you appreciate excellent food and professional service, you must try this restaurant. It deserves more attention.

A Delight from start to finish
My husband and I dined at La Porte for the first time last Saturday night. It is a wonderful, family run restaurant and the service, ambiance, food were just perfect - we will definitely return many times!! Be sure to have the Kouign-Amann for desert.

will come back
We had the Menu Plaisir (the cheapest of their three set menus; the prices are on their website). Every dish was beautiful and tasted very well (our favourite was the dessert Kouign-Amann). I enjoyed the decor and loved the music. Everybody in our group was happy after the meal.
The place was less than half-empty on a Thursday night (it seems their last reservations Mon-Thu are at 7pm), so it was very quiet. Quiet is what I was looking for.
A very good place, will come back. I would call it amazing if it was cheaper.

Going once is not enough
My wife and I are regulars of this fine restaurant who are family runned. Great sophisticated food served with passion.

This small restaurant turns out some outstanding dishes. Food was so well prepared. I had some truly perfectly prepared flat fish. Dishes were timed perfectly with the right amount of time between courses.
Only complaint is - plates stayed on table too long. Some of the music was inappropriate for the locale. The restaurant is small and well laid out - not the place for the repetitive techno whatever with the endless repetitive drum beat restaurants so favor these days. Keep the music subtle and melodic.
But I would go back again - food is very good.
